When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

Crony capitalism is the reason our country is so screwed, not because of free market/capitalism. But OzRitz likes crony/government capitalism because OzRitz hearts China and they know how to get things done. Who cares about a little bit of corruption and greed?
How would you know? There has never been free market/capitalism and there never be. Why? Because it would destroy the total economy of any nation. Those with the most marbles would never be happy until they had all the marbles. The market must be controlled.

Just wondering......if man made co2 emissions are destroying the world, does anyone wonder, and hope, the devastation could be delayed or averted if the government shutdown could last a little longer?
Saw an interesting analogy by a expert Business commenter on tv. He said this reminded him of the Disney animated film fantasia where Mickey (the Republican party) conjures up a spell that inadvertently brings on the demon broomsticks (The Tea party) and they can't be stopped. Only the sorcery can stop them and the Republicans have run out of sorcerers , McCain tried, even Bonehead has tried & they need someone like Reagan but there is no-one.

Agree, otherwise there would be only one Bank to go to, one newspaper to read, Walmart for all our shopping and God forbid we would all have to watch Fox news for our information.

You are too dense to sort out: the IPCC and Michael Mann.
The IPCC is an organization, not a person, DUH.
An organization like the IPCC can only win a prize via the work of people like Professor Michael Mann. Al Gore is singled out because he did not do the IPCC work. That's why the IPCC and Al Gore for the prize.
P.S. The tiny denier is never correct!
yeah, ya little lying humper!!!!!!

obviously, you have your political allegiances.

but....back to my thought.....could a shutdown help slow down climate change?? if so, who are the good guys?

Yes, a slowdown can cut emissions and slow climate change. So the Republicans are the good guys.

Thanks, Republicunts.

Maybe they are realizing that slowing down now will be a lot cheaper than slowing down in the future. Even if the present is painful....

Thanks again, guys, for this wonderful recession!

However, we are so far behind on ALL our infrastructure that we could spend years just repairing what's already in place.

We need high speed rail in several major corridors.

And...
That's not including the benefits we could derive from funding wind and solar at near the fossil fuel energy subsidies.

There is plenty of work here, but it needs funding. If private companies can't step forward and invest, then government has to do it. Where's that trickle down?

There are so many solutions. We just need people to be brave and implement them.

Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists say that there is a ninety-five percent chance that ninety-nine percent of us are contributing one-hundred percent of the extra GHG emissions on this planet.

I'll take that for a dollar!

The species at the centre of the Antarctic food web - krill - is under stress from the acidification detailed in the latest International Program on the State of the Ocean report, Fairfax Media reports.

The creatures are showing some signs of acidification damage, Fairfax reports, with
Acidification - which is blamed for depressing metabolic rates in jumbo squid, depressing the immune responses of blue mussels, and coral bleaching - is 50 per cent faster in the higher polar regions, and IPSO scientists say if emissions were to continue to rise the krill elggs would be unable to hatch in vast areas of the Southern Ocean by 2030, with devastating flow-on effects. "The Southern Ocean is particularly vulnerable to increased acidity because of the cold water and the type of marine life," he said.

"If there are changes in these environments, then there is a flow-on impact across the entire marine system."

Observations tell me that the AGW hypothesis does not live up to observations. Skyrocketing CO2, no warming in 15 years, Antarctic sea ice extent keeps growing, sea level rise not happening at alarming rates, no increase in "extreme" weather, climate sensitivity lower than thought, the uncertainties of how clouds, sun, PDO effect the temperatures, polar bear population increasing. So my rationalization stems from looking at the hypothesis versus the observations.
Unfortunately you are too partisan to actually look at the evidence, so your rationalization is in the psychological form.
Rationalization (making excuses)

is a defense mechanism in which perceived controversial behaviors or feelings are logically justified and explained in a rational or logical manner in order to avoid any true explanation, and are made consciously tolerable or even admirable and superior by plausible means.[2] Rationalization encourages irrational or unacceptable behavior, motives, or feelings and often involves ad hoc hypothesizing. This process ranges from fully conscious (e.g. to present an external defense against ridicule from others) to mostly subconscious (e.g. to create a block against internal feelings of guilt).

Focus on short term trends.
The final paper shows that the recent pause in global surface temperature rise does not materially alter the risks of substantial warming of the Earth by the end of this century. Nor does it invalidate the fundamental physics of global warming, the scientific basis of climate models and their estimates of climate sensitivity.
