Very responsible.
There are far, far more immediate and compelling reasons to give up the F-350 and the McMansion operating already, without and need to resort to making up skeery fairy tales to frighten Bubba.

As for moving out of Bumfuck, well - tell us what exactly it is you have against that fine up-standing town of patriotic Merkins!

My point as exactly!
There are millions of different forecasts of CO2’s effects; from negligible to unstoppable warming all coming from hundreds of thousands of scientists. There isn't consensus of anything let alone climate change being a catastrophe.
Deny that!
Find me a link that says all scientists agree climate change is a deadly crisis.
oh 'meme', the science surrounding the made up theory and consensus of man made global warming is neatly summed up in this intresting article.

I think Nauseous should pick on Fat Al Gore, at least we all know he owns a few gas guzzlers.

It's time a few of our resident believers saw that their light is dimming and it could be time to reconsider their position.
Same story here:
McKibben connects the weather dots on sh** happens
Oh boy. The propaganda gets thicker. It’s a Forrest Gump moment.

Gee, old Anthony will distort anything to deny. The paper says nothing about CO2 not being a primary GHG. It simply says that other pollutants are responsible for a little more warming than CO2 in the past few decades. By reducing these, the *rate* of global warming will slow. It does not say that global warming will cease. It simply says that CO2 will be the main driver in the future as these other GHG's are reduced. CO2 is a GHG and it is causing global warming.

So I think you should stop breathing & stop your CO2 & that will solve your problem.
CO2 is apart of nature.. so I guess nature is wrong.

So Northie...you linked me to a paper signed by:

China
Russia
India
Brazil
South Africa
Canada
UK
Japan
France Mexico
USA

It says that we must have a 50% reduction of CO2 by 2050. It says that we must support developing countries. It says we must have international agreements to deploy CO2 capture and storage. All of this will cost trillions of dollars and at the same time decrease our economic activity and decrease our dependable energy. Now do you trust China and India to go along with this agreement they signed. How about Russia? How about Brazil and Obama's agreement that we will help them drill for oil? Will they go along with this agreement?

Nothing I said is a straw man. You are the one constantly saying we need to send 1% of GDP every year to the UN.

oh 'bozo', the truth of the article was 'these scientists then discovered that the real money (funding, grants, perpetual salaries etc.) could be found by focusing on human CO2 emissions'. you might be able to get some free grant money to study the reality of it all and come to a peer reviewed consensous.

If it is really indeed a crisis, shouldn't those saying so act like it is one?

If all you remaining believers can do is constantly grunt; “they say”, at least investigate the reality of the “they say” consensus of climate change. It is not what you doomers WANT it to be. It is not a death sentence after all and real planet lovers are glad, not disappointed a crisis was exaggerated.
Would you deny it when you are paid to study the effects of it?
Climate change wasn’t a hoax or a lie or a conspiracy. It was much worse than all of those combined. It was the biggest feeding frenzy of greed for the world of science since the pesticides they gave us that made environmentalism necessary in the first place after they poisoned the planet. Let’s look at consensus shall we? What do they agree on? The only thing they agree on is that it is real and after that, every single scientist has their own unique view on the” effects”, almost never the ”causes “of climate change. It was literally the study of the effects of an assumed to be real crisis in a worst case scenario for a theory that can’t be proven or disproved anyways. The last thing they agree on is whether Human CO2 is a danger to existence of our children or at least their kids. It was legal lying and a consultant’s wet dream come true.
If more of science had said climate change was catastrophic without qualifying it with “maybe” and “possibly”, I might put my accusations of greed and exaggeration aside. Not one single scientist will say; “climate change is the end of the world.” You can’t have a little catastrophic crisis.
Causes:
-Ice cores turned out not to be the Harry Potter temperature dip sticks of time after all, check it out.
-Ancient climates are used to legitimize climate change belief but the tropical fossils under both polar caps and on all continents proves this climate of today is far from being unique.

The past decade was the warmest ever since records began. 2010 warmest year recorded. 2011 warmest year ever during L2 Nina.

Anthony is simply a denier who only attempts to use whatever he thinks might undermine what all the reputable climate scientists and great science academies find. To do so, he must build a conspiracy.

And your crisis is that nobody you know,

REALIZED THOSE TREES AREN'T HEAT SENSORS,

and the FAKE MATH claiming to CALCULATE DATA from the FAKE TREEMOMITURS

isn't real either.

The impending crisis is your church officials being indicted
