Your question makes no sense. There is a mountain of evidence. If Stephen Hawking said there was none, it would be a sign of senility and have nothing to do with his current ability to interpret scientific data.

"The price of U.S. oil rose Wednesday following reports that Washington is studying whether to lift a longstanding ban on crude oil exports."

Lets apply some simple logic here. When crude supplies shrink, the price goes up. When crude supplies rise, price goes down. What will happen to supplies if we start allowing the export? What then will happen to the price? Obama is acting more and more like Bush everyday, I can see why people constantly bring him up.

So basically you are saying if he did say he didnt not concur with the alarmists who say it is man caused, you would declare him senile and ignore his opinion, got ya. Your OPINION is there is a mountain of evidence. There is a mountain of evidence that the climate is changing like it has done for a very long time. Thee is no actual evidence man is causing a harmful rise in temps. Roy Spencer even points this out and he is a credible source.

On July 18, 2013 before U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer's Environment and Public Works committee, Spencer suggested the hearing title could easily be renamed "Climate Change, It's Happened Before" rather than the actual title, "Climate Change, It's Happening Now". He added “The last 2000 years of proxy reconstructed temperature variations for the Northern Hemisphere shows that the Modern Warm Period (today) is not significantly different from the Medieval Warm Period of ~1000 years ago, or the Roman Warm Period of ~2000 years ago."

Do we really want to go back into another ice age? Der de der. And see how they say " Earth has naturally warmed and cooled throughout its history"? But now they claim it is caused by man.

Climate scientists also agree the Earth has naturally warmed and cooled throughout its history. These cycles have repeated themselves about every 100,000 years for the last 900,000 years. If the pattern held true again, Earth might already be heading into another ice age, but there's a confounding factor: humans.

One thing climate deniers consistently do is look at localized temperatures and pretend they are global. They aren't. That's especially true of the "Roman Warm Period." The climate has changed and always will. But the notion that you support - that AGW is a hoax - is laughable. We are influencing climate, and that influence is almost certainly going to be costly. We should reduce our influence as much as possible through conservation and innovation and prepare for the problems we are likely to encounter. That isn't alarmist. That isn't gloom and doom. That isn't killing coal. That isn't stealing your money. That is common sense.

Thanks To Fox News: Human Intelligence Is On The Decline
http://www.newscorpse.com/ncWP/...
Imagine my surprise to find a story on Fox Nation, the lie-riddled community web site of Fox News, about the decline of human intelligence. Was this an attempt to convey the results of an academic study, or are they just bragging?
The article refers to a study done at the University of Amsterdam that concludes that westerners have lost 14 IQ points on average since the Victorian Era. The study’s author surmised that a number of complex factors led to the conclusion that was based on tests of visual reaction times. The tests reflect a person’s mental processing speed which correlates to IQ. Among the explanations offered for the brain drain were the migration of populations to densely packed cities and a tendency for more intelligent women to choose to have fewer children.
Not surprisingly, the Fox Nationalists utterly misconstrued the study’s findings. Their linked source for the story was an article on the conservative blog, Townhall, where the web editor dismissed the science behind the research and offered his own opinion that the decline in IQ was caused by MTV and video games. Somewhere along the way he missed the fact that the reported decline occurred over a period of more than a hundred years, which makes his hypothesis focusing on modern television and technology a pretty good example of a dumbed-down contemporary human.
The rejection of science is not unusual for conservatives who persistently refuse to accept the scientific community’s nearly universal consensus on things like evolution and climate change. That may explain why scientists themselves veer away from conservative associations. A study by the Pew Center for the People and the Press revealed that “most scientists identify as Democrats (55%), while 32% identify as independents and just 6% say they are Republicans.”
[If you like this, then LIKE News Corpse on Facebook]
Furthermore, if there is a decline in intelligence, it is most starkly evident in the Tea-publican Party. A report published by (of all places) Fox Business, surveyed the nation’s academic profile and found that the ten states with the best educated citizens were all “blue” states, while nine of the ten worst educated were “red” states (and eight of those were in the south).
So whether Fox viewers are stupid or ignorant is immaterial. The important thing is to continue to provide a counterbalance to the propaganda Fox spews and rescue citizens from their deceitful disinformation that only benefits the wealthy, right-wing elites who Fox was created to serve.

Whatever its origins, there seems to be an innate desire among many lefties to classify those who disagree with their belief system as mentally, morally, or psychologically inferior—or preferably all three. This being the case, it should come as no surprise that in addition to cooking up real academic studies using biased questionnaires designed to make conservatives look stupid, statists also have a habit of getting taken in by fake “studies” which validate their alleged superiority.

You are kinda lying again. I have already pointed out that I dont think man has no influence on the climate. When I fart, I have an influence, so to claim otherwise is idiotic. You are making more false claims about MY opinions and claims. Back to same old same? The hoax is claiming there is evidence that man is causing a HARMFUL rise in temperatures AND that by taxing me, shutting down coal, etc. will make ANY difference at all to the naturally and continually changing climate. Strike 2 on the L word. You just cant resist can you, and that makes it the P word.

I know you liberals would rather talk climate change then what a idiot and scewup Obama is. Or that your next great hope of Hilary has now been question by her own party about her age and health. That is why Bill had to have a press conference on her behalf. She will be 67 in October and 68 when the elections are held if she gets the nomination. This and health for someone running for president has always been asked. So we do not need to here the cry about age discrimination or gender. So with health concerns and age issues.......What would be a good reason to elect someone of that age that has no accomplishments?

KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP)— A pregnant Sudanese woman who married a Christian man was sentenced to death Thursday after she refused to recant her Christian faith, her lawyer said.

Meriam Ibrahim, whose father was Muslim but mother was an Orthodox Christian from Ethiopia, was convicted of "apostasy" on Sunday and given four days to repent and escape death, said lawyer Al-Shareef Ali al-Shareef Mohammed.

WASHINGTON (AP)— A federal judge said Thursday she is leaning toward allowing President Barack Obama's claim of executive privilege in Operation Fast and Furious, the failed law enforcement operation at the center of a congressional investigation and subpoena fight between the Justice Department and House Republicans.

At a hearing, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson cautioned that she has not decided how she will rule in the case.

But she said she regards the executive privilege claim as qualified. That view could result in some Justice Department records that House Republicans want remaining confidential, while others might be subject to public disclosure.

Lawyers for the House and the White House argued the case before Jackson. She flayed both sides, chiding the lawyers for turning in legal filings that she called "distressing" for their "vituperative" tone and saying the hearing would not turn into a "press conference."

Ultimately, Jackson will rule on whether the president's privilege claim trumps the congressional subpoena.

In an earlier chapter in the Fast and Furious saga, Republicans led by Rep. Darrell Issa of California made Attorney General Eric Holder the first Cabinet member ever to be held in contempt of Congress over his refusal to provide the documents.

Now in what may be the waning months of Holder's tenure as attorney general, the Issa-led House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is hunting for information that might explain why it took the Justice Department nearly a year to admit that federal agents in Operation Fast and Furious engaged in a prohibited law enforcement tactic known as gun-walking.

The Arizona office of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives permitted illicitly purchased weapons to be transported unimpeded in an effort to track them to high-level arms traffickers shipping guns to Mexican drug cartels.

Federal agents lost control of some 2,000 weapons, many of which wound up at crime scenes in Mexico and the U.S. Two of the guns that had been allowed to "walk" were found at the scene of the slaying of a U.S. border agent, Brian Terry, whose death in December 2010 resulted in some of the agents blowing the whistle to Congress about the prohibited tactic.
