These oil CEOs and their supportive politicians FROM BOTH PARTIES, including Carter, Reagan, the Bushes, Clinton, and Obama, are psychopaths who consider normal people to be food for their egos and they must be surgically removed from our society or we will be consumed by their greed. By surgically removed, I mean that we must separate ourselves from their influence.The oil industry bought and paid for 'make-believe-scientists' to dispute global warming. That much is fact. also fact is their oppostion to soloar industry. Fancy that.
Republicans gave us Bush & Cheney. And they're anti-science and anti-people, except the 1%. Ignorant haters fall for their rhetoric.

How do you remove the very people your education created and cherish, once a liberal, always a liberal.
Still waiting for those answers.

Over the last couple weeks, scientists and environmentalists have been keeping a particularly close eye on the Hawaii-based monitoring station that tracks how much carbon dioxide is in the atmosphere, as the count tiptoed closer to a record-smashing 400 parts per million. Thursday, we finally got there: The daily mean concentration was higher than at any time in human history, NOAA reported.
Dont worry: The earth is not about to go up in a ball of flame. The 400 ppm mark is only a milestone, 50 ppm over what legendary NASA scientist James Hansen has since 1988 called the safe zone for avoiding the worst impacts of climate change, and yet only halfway to what the IPCC predicts well reach by the end of the century.
Somehow in the last 50 ppm we melted the Arctic, said environmentalist and founder of activist group 350.org Bill McKibben, who called todays news a grim but predictable milestone and has long used the symbolic number as a rallying call for climate action.Well see what happens in the next 50.
We could find out soon enough: With the East Coast still recovering from Superstorm Sandy and the West gearing up for what promises to be a nasty fire season, University of California ecologist Max Moritz says milestones like these are an excuse for us to take a good hard look at where we are, especially as the carbon concentration shows no signs of reversing course.
When you come up with coherent questions, I will furnish you with coherent answers.

You should post facts and You have posted no facts.
Remember this, This is what we are talking about. Show the link, stop being a Ralph..

I tried to dumb it down where even you could understand it.
"The earth releases the heat through the ozone layer and once it hits the atmosphere it blast through space at light speed attracting the suns hot rays as it goes along. Then it engulfs every planet in it's path increasing the temperature of that planet. It's common sense and there is not one scientist in the world who disagrees with it.."
So Gorky, show the link that proves your statement above.
#5647 May 12, 2013
Oh my again Gorky, Provide the link that verifies your lies again.(There are now no credible scientific skeptics challenging the underlying scientific theory, or the broad projections, of climate change.")
#5648 May 12, 2013
Just for clarification, when you say "remove", do you mean in the sense of "to eliminate" or "exterminate"?
The true opposite of a liberal is a fascist. You make the common mistake of defining a conservative as the opposite of a liberal, but the opposite of a conservative is a progressive.
Also, the opposite of a college liberal arts program is an applied professional program, such as engineering, or a business degrees, etc.. However, they are not truly in opposition, they are just a different focus of education. Each has advantages.
If you favor fascism or if you are a supporter of The Tea Party, you are outside the definition of conservatism. Conservatism is a useful and positive means of advocating for the preservation of the best in society and opposing radical changes that could be harmful to humans and to society. I hope you will continue to remain a thoughtful Conservative and I will do the same with my Progressive Liberalism.
I suggest we strive to find a healthy balance between Conservatism and Liberalism and move together to moderate the influence of the pathologically inclined leaders of our ruling class.
In the meantime, I suggest you try and stop your stereotyping and address the real problems at their roots.

How come you refuse you provide the links to the same 2 comments you made?
No....How do you remove your liberal idealogy and become a benefit to society, and how do you change the educational system and remove liberal ideology from that dept.
We will never strive together to fix anything, you are a progressive liberal and I am a mixture of different ideas btwn conservative, republician, libeterian, green party, environmentalists (water, mining act, oil, gas, coal).
#5651 May 12, 2013
I made about a half dozen comments and they are all my opinions. Just use "Gorky" as your source. Or google the terms, if you know how. I see no reason to remove liberal thought or conservative thought from education. They are both important studies. If there were no liberal ideology, there would be no education, period, unless that education was on how to conform to a fascist government and not think about it. "How to conform to a fascist government and not think about it", would make a clever class title for graduate school.
I will somehow survive with the loss of your help.

More bad news for climate change deniers.
Climate change is a political winner, recent polls make clear (see links below). It is a wedge issue that divides Tea Party extremists from Democrats, independents, and even moderate/liberal Republicans.
Providing further support for that view is a new analysis of by The Yale Project on Climate Change Communication. They found:
Concern about the effects of climate change is high across political groups, with majorities of Democrats and Independents expressing concern about global warming and its potential harm for themselves and future generations.
Across party lines, there is support for taking action to reduce global warming, with pluralities of all groups favoring medium-scale efforts. Even among Republicans, a sizeable majority support making some effort to address global warming.
Independents more closely resemble Democrats in their attitudes and beliefs about global warming, and like Democrats, most support efforts to address the problem. Thus, the issue of global warming is a political opportunity to connect with most Independents.

thanks for all the requested information. you are so good to these mental peons. you are just about a perfect human being.
BTW we are all screwed by climate change and it is too late. in NM we are not even 10 years into a 40 year drought.

Nowadays, in an age of rising population and scarcities of food and water in some regions, its a wonder that humanitarians arent clamoring for more atmospheric carbon dioxide.
No, its not the satiric magazine "The Onion". Its The Wall Street Journal editorial page, which nowadays is much the same thing.
Once again, the countrys leading financial newspaper is recycling long-debunked myths from disinformers with PhDs posing as climate scientists in this case, Harrison H. Schmitt and William Happer,In Defense of Carbon Dioxide: The demonized chemical compound is a boon to plant life and has little correlation with global temperature.
But what nefarious forces have been demonizing CO2? Lets see:
IMF Chief (2/13):Unless We Take Action On Climate Change, Future Generations Will Be Roasted, Toasted, Fried And Grilled
World Bank Report (11/12):A 4°C [7°F] World Can, And Must, Be Avoided To Avert Devastating Impacts
Wall Street Journal (1/13):More Droughts, Floods, Extreme Weather Expected With Warming Climate
Darn you, major international financial institutions and the papers own reporters!
Sure the Journals editorial page has long been part of the effort to advance the pollutocrat do-nothing agenda (see Scientist:The Murdoch Media Empire Has Cost Humanity Perhaps One or Two Decades in Battle Against Climate Change).
But this piece is a new low.Its shameful even by the dismal standards of that page, as Columbia Journalism Review puts its in their piece,The WSJ editorial page hits rock bottom.
The entire piece is devoted to one of the most risible logical fallacies pushed by the deniers that because CO2 stimulates plant growth, lots more CO2 must be great for plants. Its like arguing that because humans need water to live, floods must be a great thing.

So one scientists says one thing, and another scientists say another thing, who is right, Only God knows. Man should do better to conserve water, and use recycled H20 as much as possible.
Because 30 million "Illegals" are going to get citizenship in 2024 to replace the retiring Baby Boomers.(Now you know where that 13 year number comes from, the baby boomers will all be retiring at age 62 in 2024.) And water will be a major issue America has not figured out.

The scientific discovery process is to some extent trial and error. Not every hypothesis turns out to be accurate on the first try. That is why scientists repeat the studies that others have conducted and have their own studies revisited - proof read, so to speak.
The main thing we need to do is to reduce the amount of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere. 350 ppm is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxidemeasured in "Parts Per Million" in our atmosphere. 350 PPMis the number humanity needs to get back to as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change. We are presently at 400ppm.

Kinda like Global Cooling...just some trial and error.
Repeat studies = fix the data to make the lie believeable.

Twenty years ago, with "The End of Nature", Bill McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about global warming. Those warnings went mostly unheeded; now, he insists, we need to acknowledge that we've waited too long, and that massive change is not only unavoidable but already under way. Our old familiar globe is suddenly melting, drying, acidifying, flooding, and burning in ways that no human has ever seen. We've created, in very short order, a new planet, still recognizable but fundamentally different. We may as well call it Eaarth.
That new planet is filled with new binds and traps. A changing world costs large sums to defendthink of the money that went to repair New Orleans, or the trillions it will take to transform our energy systems. But the endless economic growth that could underwrite such largesse depends on the stable planet we've managed to damage and degrade. We can't rely on old habits any longer.
Our hope depends, McKibben argues, on scaling backon building the kind of societies and economies that can hunker down, concentrate on essentials, and create the type of community (in the neighborhood, but also on the Internet) that will allow us to weather trouble on an unprecedented scale. Changefundamental changeis our best hope on a planet suddenly and violently out of balance.
To be fair, climate deniers will be allowed to continue denying. They will serve as reminders of the dangers and costs of ignorance and human folly.

I've often wondered how Gorky keeps his cool among so many scared haters. Maybe it's his desire to teach (he's a natural teacher), maybe it's his activism. Whatever it is, it is refreshing. Hats off to you for your rational posts.
#5662 May 17, 2013
Thank you, Clay, for the kind words. Hate, for me, is self-destructive. Although, I have little respect for the haters, I'm not willing to join them. My high-school History teacher, D.T., who is still active in the community, used to say that he was fighting the war on ignorance. He still is. I was, and still am, impressed by my roll model from 1958. It is easier and more pleasant for me to address the ignorance of the haters, than to hate them back. Who knows, maybe someone will see the light. I did.
