Facts are the antithesis to mere belief. So your schools are going to be anti-religion then?
Public schools should not teach religious doctrine, but should address religion in a historical context.

Galt has little use for organized religion, but unlike you recognizes the rights of others to their beliefs.

Wrong, there is significant controversy about the cause of cyclic changes in global temperatures.
Remember that Galileo was a holdout against the consensus scientific thought of his time.
You're right - there IS controversy. But it's coming from those with financial interests in denying the science and the know-nothings who blindly follow them.

But there is NO controversy within the climatology community.

None.

Ummm, no. Your comparison is not only a distortion of history, the exact OPPOSITE is true.

Galileo was attacked by religious/political authority, not scientists. Other scientists agreed with his observations.

Galileo's theories were evidence-based and his attackers were belief-based. Just like now - global warming is evidence-based. The skeptics come from an ideological belief system.

Other scientists went along with the political authority, just like today.

O'Reilly and Hannity's poll numbers are way down.
Is this the beginning of the end....?
maybe Rupert will replace them with a couple more of his "bubble-headed" bleached blondes.

That his genius strategy...but the best and still the prettiest was Deborah Norville.-she's still the best. Deborah wasn't bubble headed though. I guess that's why he got rid of her...

But just thought Id share the good news with the great Democratic friends who post on here...

Have a great day...

Wow no more Oreilly or Hannity...sounds like a liberal utopian vision

Deborah Norville is very talented, but never worked for FoxNews.

Unfortunately, NBC dumped Norville in favor of Katie Colonoscopy.

Marisa, you have proven your self to be one ignorant racial hating tea bag, nothing more and nothing less. The only people who buys into your bobby6464 falsehood claim to be any one but one person who posts on this forum are only your tea bag brethren. Your delusional thinking don't mean nothing to me.

Whats with this Marisa obsession that a few posters have here? Dan the Man and Bobby seem to think every unknown poster that comes here is Marisa.

Bobby are you suffering from Black Man Anger Syndrome? It sure looks that way because your posts are full of racial hatred..

You are definitely suffering from Marisa Drangement Syndrome. You can't seem to stop talking about her. You got it bad, real bad.

Maybe you should seek help for your obsession and derangement disorders.

How about a "3 strikes and you're out" policy when it comes to coastal/flood plains? House destroyed the third time, no more national bailout insurance on your beachfront property.

This would pit the climate change deniers money where their mouths are. In a free market, they now get to take all the risks vs. the reward with no government safety net as no private insurance company would play.

But realistically, the scamming insurance would. They'd just declare bankruptcy when it comes to paying out after boodles of bonuses were paid to the executives. Then place blame on the government.

"Privatize the profits, Socialize the losses" is the name of the game now.

Name a university that offers a doctorate in "climatology" or any organization that certifies "climatologists", other than TV stations for the 11 PM news.

Only one bite at the apple would be better.

But floods do not have any definite correlation with climate change, let alone man-made climate change.

I was thinking of people building in a hundred year flood plain. That should be an extraordinary event but building there should take a precaution in the event of a hundred year flood.

Example - Scranton, PA was prone to flooding so they built levees on the Susquehanna river. Not long after, Hurricane Agnes parked itself over the city and dumped tons of rain beyond all expectations and overwhelmed the levees built. Another government failure because they didn't account for an extraordinary event like a hurricane parking itself over NE PA?

Whether climate change is man made or not, there looks to be a shift in the climate. This is not new in the history of the Earth.

Now we have a choice - try to predict what will happen and prepare for it at a cost or ignore the warnings and cry "all is well this quarter!"

A crude analogy might be you are standing on railroad tracks.
The lights go on.
"False alarm". you might say.
The gates start coming down.
"Bogus. The gate maintenance workers are just trying to protect their government jobs."
Train runs you down.
"Uncle Sam! Help me!"
And Uncle Sam replies "Sorry. We need to keep the trains running for those not standing on the tracks."

And if you think the researchers are living high off the government teats, consider how much money is available as a whole vs. CEO bonuses.

The person trying to find a cure for a cancer over a decade is so less important than a CEO spinning PR to maintain the stock price this quarter.
