Perhaps they want to educate people who think only factories are responsible for climate change.

Or trying fill their ranks to help their cause. There's a wealth of like-minded people in this area (e.g. UVA).

Sounds like Al Gore secret type meetings on carbon futures and carbon tax. They need to get over the fact they are going to die and should be more concerned with what kinda footprint they will leave from being creamated

"Climate Change", democratic code word for just carbon tax. Check out the amount of money they pay for carbon tax in Australia. The largest pool of money is in the middle class and the dems want it.

What a phony bunch of nonsense supposedly educated people choose to believe. Do your due diligence before you make fools of yourselves.

Why not recruit Algore to the group? He needs to be reminded of climate change and its causes: after all, he just sold his worthless cable channel to Al-Jazzera, which is financed by big oil conglomerates, for $100 million!

Can we get a picture of the parking lot? How many of them drive SUV's because "it makes them feel safer"? Or better yet, how many of them drive a Prius, then drive like a bat out of hell to prove their Prius can, and wind up consuming more fuel than a BMW M3?

Judy is on to something, but climate change is not code word for carbon tax, it's code word for screwing over small businesses and the middle class, while wealthy corporations and individuals and communist China still destroy the planet.

I saw their patron saint Algore on the telly Tuesday. He was quite:
a) puffy and bloated;
b) looney;
c) rambling and pointless,
d) pontificating,
e) hypocritical, or
f) all of the above.

A preliminary draft of a report by the U.N’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was leaked to the public earlier this month and now climate change skeptics are arguing it shows evidence of 20 years of global warming overestimation.

Someone involved with the U.N.’s IPCC review process reportedly leaked the draft and made it available for download online. The report shows that each of the four temperature models the U.N. body has published since 1990 has overestimated the rise in temperature on planet Earth. The report wasn’t actually supposed to be released until 2014.

“Temperatures have not risen nearly as much as almost all of the climate models predicted,” Roy Spencer, a climatologist at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, told FoxNews.com .

“Their predictions have largely failed, four times in a row… what that means is that it’s time for them to re-evaluate,” he added.

The IPCC graph shows that the midpoints of the various models predicted that the world would warm by between about 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit and 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit between 1990 and 2012. Actual warming was much less than that: 0.28 F, according the data the IPCC cites.

Having meetings is not going to accomplish anything other than weather watching and hand wringing. Exponential populaton increase is unsustainable, and unsustainability brings about correction. It could be food chain disintegration or untreatable infectious disease, but it will happen and must happen. Let's hope that those who remain will make wiser use of our technology.
