Interesting that you asked for a study proving the death of hundreds of birds, the study was provided confirming the death of hundreds of birds...your reaction?

More of your usual tripe.

Any kind of factual conversation with you is wasted because you are an idiot.

The standard rules of a debate is that he who makes an assertion is required to back it up. Do you really think you are going to find converts to your bogus religion. You greenies will never convince us of your "hypothesis" no matter what. All your supposed "data", "models", peer-reviewed articles have been debunked. You assert AGW is true. Prove it.

The study was not linked to, and there isn't one, that's why you can't find it, that's why you can't post it.

There is an actual study? Post the link to it, or STFU cause nobody, least of all me, is going to take the daily caller, the times and all the other noise machine outlets that carry such nonsense seriously.

There is one, post it. Quite simple.

The globe is warming. It has warmed and cooled many times in the past. There is NOT a consensus on the role of man in the current climate changes. The latest reported, peer-reviewed, climate change study released Wednesday by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change finds the threat of man-made global warming to be not only greatly exaggerated but so small as to be “embedded within the background variability of the natural climate system” and not dangerous. The UN has an agenda to impose a carbon tax on industrialized nations to give that money to third world nations, income redistribution, not climate change, is the UN goal.(Google the US government's IPCC study for yourself, it's an eye opener.)

Sorry, I will never respoind to Stamos, he's a proven liar and BS artist, he's a racist, and a wackjob.

Half the population of this country does not belive in evolution, just a leftist trick is it?

You'll have to get to the end of the article for answers to what half this country "believes" concerning Atoms and Lasers!!

"People and surveys being what they are, these numbers tend to jump around a bit from year to year. At the same time, 49 percent is nearly half the country, so it wouldn't be excessively cheerful (would it?) to note that half of the American public is more or less in harmony with basic science -- at least as it relates to climate change and the role carbon dioxide emissions play in exacerbating things. Given that roughly the same number of Americans flatly reject evolution, the climate numbers represent a comparative bounty of enlightenment.

That's not something you hear very often when it comes to surveys of Americans. Delving deeper into the textbooks, for instance, another recent study showed that less than half of population was clear on whether atoms are smaller than electrons, or whether lasers work by focusing sound waves. In this light (ahem), the larger consensus on global warming is notable.(Answers on atoms and lasers appear at the end of this column.)

It's elementary: climate change is real.

But a far more troubling metric from Yale's latest poll suggests that only 42 percent of Americans believe that scientists are in agreement on climate change. A full 33 percent of respondents are convinced that there remains "widespread disagreement" among scientists on the issue. This is a problem -- both because it is so at odds with reality, and because it likely helps prevent more Americans from recognizing and accepting some pretty straightforward scientific realities.

It is this reason that prompted a team of researchers to painstakingly comb through the abstracts of more than 12,000 scientific articles published between 1991 and 2011 to determine just how much scientific agreement exists on the subject of climate change, and humanity's role in driving it. The team was led by John Cook, a Climate Communication Fellow for the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland and the founder of the climate change education web site SkepticalScience.com .

The results, published Thursday in the journal Environmental Research Letters, were clear: of the more than 4,000 abstracts that had anything to say about human-driven climate change, 97 percent endorsed the notion. A little less than 3 percent either rejected the idea or remained undecided.

"There is a gaping chasm between the actual consensus and the public perception," Cook said in a statement accompanying the study's release. "It's staggering given the evidence for consensus that less than half of the general public think scientists agree that humans are causing global warming. This is significant because when people understand that scientists agree on global warming, they're more likely to support policies that take action on it."

In a follow-up email exchange, Cook said that the evidence for consensus on the topic among individual scientists was even stronger, given that more researchers were listed as co-authors on papers endorsing the idea of human-driven climate change -- technically called "anthropogenic global warming," or AGW for short -- than on papers that rejected it.

"Consequently," Cook said, "among the 10,000 scientists who had expressed a position on AGW in the peer-reviewed literature, 98.4 percent endorsed the consensus."

My "proof" is 98.4% of a re-examination!!!!!!!!

Did that, now what?

"America, pay attention. On March 12,“An Open Letter from Scientists in the United States on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and Errors Contained in the Fourth Assessment Report: Climate Change 2007,” will be delivered to U.S. federal agencies. The letter thus far has upwards of 150 signers, the vast majority of whom are climate change scientists who work at leading U.S. universities and institutions, including both IPCC and non-IPCC authors. The letter affirms the great and compelling body of evidence developed by the science community over decades, which concludes that the problem of human-caused global climatic disruption is real and that there are multiple reasons for concern about the risks this problem poses. It affirms the great value, fundamental soundness, and significance of the IPCC climate science assessments, while acknowledging the need for careful review of procedures to strengthen and quality-assure future reports, to minimize errors and to correct errors in a timely fashion."

Why is it that you all have to lie?

It's going to be the same outcome as the phony IRS scandal you pushed for the spring, when all of the reporting is finally disclosed, Conservative noise machines will be exposed as cherry picking words to support their ideological direction and show basically the opposite of what you and they are saying now!!!!!!!

You apparently missed the memo sloppy.
I realize it can be really tough reading under CFL light in a closet, so here it is again.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamestaylor/2011/...
A new batch of 5,000 emails among scientists central to the assertion that humans are causing a global warming crisis were anonymously released to the public yesterday, igniting a new firestorm of controversy nearly two years to the day after similar emails ignited the Climategate scandal.

Three themes are emerging from the newly released emails:(1) prominent scientists central to the global warming debate are taking measures to conceal rather than disseminate underlying data and discussions; (2) these scientists view global warming as a political “cause” rather than a balanced scientific inquiry and (3) many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data.

Looks like a great time!

"Colorado was just drowned in epic flooding—commentators took to calling it "biblical"—killing eight people, forcing 10,000 to evacuate, and destroying or damaging nearly 20,000 homes. All this just after equally epic wildfires tortured the region, killing two and razing 500 homes. But even as the waters begin to recede, the state faces a new, freshly toxic problem: the floods have unleashed the state's fracking fluids.

Scenes like this are now common across the Colorado foothills:

Thousands, maybe tens of thousands of oil and fracking wells were flooded, and hundreds of them were feared to be contaminating local water supplies. There are 19,000 wells in the Weld County alone, which saw some of the heaviest rainfall. Gas companies, fearing disruption, shut off at least 1,900 after the waters hit.

Just look at this map

The fear wasn't just that all those wells or nearby pipelines would rupture outright, but also that the flooding might dredge up the controversial and toxic fracking fluids oil and gas companies use to blast through the rock. As CNN explains, "that mixture, which often takes on additional, naturally occurring contaminates such as lead or radioactive elements, is then pumped back to the surface. It's sometimes stored on site in large ponds or in tanks until it can be disposed of."

That is, unless floodwaters come along first, and mix it into a giant, toxic, muddy chemical cocktail. "From there, the toxins can end up in rivers or lakes used for drinking water, or run into water wells that have been damaged by the flood," CNN reports. "Longer term, the contaminants could stay in the soil once the flood waters recede and find their way into the food supply."

Anti-fracking groups have been working hard to spread the word on social media. Groups like Weld Air and Water, East Boulder County United and some individual citizens have been posting images of the flood-damaged fracking fields and wells on blogs and Facebook.

Gary Wockner, the Colorado director of Clean Water Action, told AccuWeather that at least a thousand wells had reportedly been flooded.

"Once those chemicals hit flood water, they get across a large swath of the landscape," he explained. "Our big concern is oil and gas, and fracking chemicals, in the water. We have seen photos of oil slicks on top of the floodwaters and we are continuing to monitor all of the flooding and cleanup efforts. Oil, gas and fracking chemicals are poisonous to people and animals, and could pollute farms and drinking water supplies."

Tony Ingraffea, a professor of engineering at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York told the Financial Post that the potential release of these fluids was a "major concern."

“We could have a long term, hazardous waste cleanup problem,” he said.

And it's not one the state saw coming. Colorado has become a hotspot for fracking, thanks to its wealth of natural gas and oil reserves, and to Governor John Hickenlooper, who has gone to occasionally absurd lengths to make his state attractive to fracking—the man once drank fracking fluid, for starters. A spate of thousand-year flooding covering thousands of wellheads was likely the last thing on his mind as he slushed the fracking gunk around his mouth.

Beautiful, who say's we are polluting the planet with toxic Oil gas and other chemicals for fossil fuels?!!??!!? It can't be MAN-MADE!!!!!

You were given the link and refuse to accept it out of fear of facing reality. Something you're whole existence revolves around, fear of reality and the fact that you've been indoctrinated into a cult of lies. Face your fears and the TRUTH will set you free. Here, maybe if it's presented in a HTML format you'll be able to understand it. I doubt it, but give it a try anyway.

Okie Dokie,

The world is warming so we will call it global warming, and convince a bunch of people that it is OK to penalize companies here for something unproven by science...meanwhile, other countries do nothing and take our jobs because we can't compete.

Ooooops, the science hasn't confirmed it is global warming, but we will continue because we started down this road and cannot go back and say it isn't true now. We will now call it "climate change" so we can say that no matter if the earth is getting warmer or cooler, we can blame it on the same thing and keep up the BS....you will never admit you are full of shit, even though we all know that is a fact.

You cannot prove that man is responsible for global warming, so these penalties imposed by our government are wasteful and irresponsible and costing American jobs.

In addition, that same government pours our tax dollars into companies claiming they can produce "green energy", but they cut and run as soon as they've spent all the money...its a disgrace and shouldn't be allowed.

At the same time, our government imposes regulations on fules needed to run our economy, further choking our businesses and driving up the cost for us all.

You have provided no worthy contradiction to the proof offered and you're an idiot.

Bye bye...

That's NOT the study your article referred to, where is it?

Post the study, or STFU with your BS, post the link, why wouldn't you just ppost it again if you had it, you would. You can't, it doesn't exist, so, no link, why are you relying on Stamos, post the link corresponding to your post!

You can't
You won't
Ever

EVER, cause it doesn't exist.

REally very simple and easy, post it IF you have it!
