Yes, indeed; yet another study confirming human responsibility for the cooking of the climate. Another in the long line of other studies dating back to 1895 (Arrhenius), 1859 (Tyndall) or even 1824 (Fourier), comprising the greatest scientific inquiry of al time.

And still a few political fanatics and energy industry stooges deny it all.

If you think it's as good as confirmed, why the need to waste even more taxpayer's dollars on it?

Because of the constant stream of lies, distortions, and energy-financed propaganda from Deniers, of course.

If, as appears to be the case, there's a real threat to the environment from warming, of course we should "spend the taxpayers' dollars" to investigate it. only an idiot would suggest otherwise.

Uh, no; if we caused it, we can stop it.

Every scientific academy on the planet agrees that we caused it.

How about that, donkey blames 'deniers' for the need to spend more taxpayer's dollars on more research.
Only a donkey could make that one up.
Priceless.

I think you'll find that sargon was referring to what we're doing about 'it' right now, talking, not acting.
Unless, of course, you're doing something about it other than talking?

So what, that won't stop whatever it is you're panicking about, will it?
In fact it only makes things worse for panickers like you.

So who do we blame for the north american ice sheet melting millions of years ago? Must be global warming then too hu? Must have been cave men building campfires.

There's quite a lot you don't know, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty, my political affiliation is only one of the myriad items.

I think this is the abstract, hard to tell the story in the article says a whole lot more than this says.
