Yup, go ahead & emit all the carbon you want. You'd just better hope you're not in north Germany, because it'll all be under water. Bye-bye, Kiel; Hamburg will be in trouble as well.

Sorry, super BrainG, you gonna get more snow.

We're all emitting greenhouse gases, whether we want to or not. You Idiot.

But, Brain, in sunny northern Germany, there by the sea, the snow will just melt right away when the sun comes out. Right?

The climate in Germany sucks in winter, so I'll vacation in the Caribbean. We can't mitigate climate change, but we can move to take advantage of better climate.

You're lying.

At Berlin's latitude, those solar collectors should be tilted at 67 degrees, too steep an angle to catch snow.

We've been wondering the same about you; what good are you?

A broom works well. Tilt it at a 45 deg angle and sweep.

Regardless if USA and most of Eorupe do all we can to curtail global warming, ALL of Latin America, Asia, Africa and Middle east (perhaps not Israel) will wipe their butts with it and any future global warming UN type "regulations" , much as they do now .

Brian, Teener, other deniers on here, they can't help it. They watch Fox News.
Fox News Claims Solar Won't Work in America Because It's Not Sunny Like Germany
With Fox, it's hard to tell if this is ignorance or dishonesty. They must not know how to use a computer; that's the ignorance part. That's pretty bad, since probably 75% of the people in the US and the UK know how to use a search engine.
So it must be dishonesty. They assume their audience is stupid so they tell these outrageous lies. And their audience believes them.
"They assume their audience is stupid so they tell these outrageous lies."

FOX would be correct in such an assumption. FOX viewers want to believe certain things ,so FOX simply satisfies the craving for ignorance .
My uncle is a FOX and Glenn Beck pupett who see's conspiracies behind every tree and after several years of watching FOX hates all non Christians .

He hated Mormons till Romney ran but now back to hating them again.

Jews for being "liberal" (aka open minded progressive) and their war on Christmas (FOX does imply that)and Muslims and Hindus (He "FOX thinks" they are the same) for trying to kill HIM (him in particular as Glenn Beck implies).

For the most part he thinks the world is out to get right wing Christians and FOX wouldn't have it any other way.

In addition, you think topix does not know what you publish. Attacks on me will not delete or erase what you are and what you do. You should stop making an ASSumption of your---self before you know the facts. Do contact topix to satisfy your accusations of the reprint BS your posting of what I said. You are a dumbASSumption of your---self again.

Au contrare', my friend.

The ChiComs are begining to hear the voice of the people; the people are tired of the pollution and tired of the wages. The ChiComms have a lot of people to control and they don't want any social movements getting started.

Like in India, which is slightly more democratic. The people can steer the government slowly........about like we do. The worst thing about India is Pakistan. A war between those two might give us a nuclear winter and forestall the warming a bit. But not a good solution.

I hope you are correct but I am inclined to disagree with you on this.

I was tuned to Public Radio Mississippi on April 27, 2011, so I knew what could be coming. The radio helped to save my life.

You can be sure we were tuned in yesterday as well.

I don't know which mainstream media you are watching (probably Fox "news") but they've been mentioning the hell out of it lately. In fact, there is often a special segment on climate change.
Maybe the less than a box of rocks, valley girl Teener only gets her news from Rush and Sean and the clowns on Faux Noose. THAT'S the real fringe.
Your stale argument is based on a minority of mostly media reports of a coming ice age 50 years ago. The real scientist behind the most prominent of those reports was a guy who later became one of the biggest anti-AGW proponents, Mr. Singer. He worked for the tobacco lobby too.
There's that agenda you were looking for; only, funny thing is, it's in your camp.
Actually.
Actually, I watch more CBS than Fox news. I also watch NBC, and ABC far more than Fox news. Unlike you I make sure I check multiple sources so that I know about as many sides of an issue as possible. Do I read Rush Limbaugh transcripts, yes. Then again I will also read the State of the Union transcripts since it is faster to read them than watch it or spend three hours listening to Limbaugh. I also pay attention to viewership and Fox has a far higher one than CNN.

The fact that you have to refer to me in such negative terms as valley girl (for someone who has never lived in Califronia), teener, and others tells me that you are responding on an emotional and not a mental level.

As for my arguement, it is base more than on the last fifty years. That if anything is a sign of how narrow minded your views are. The subject of man and climate change goes back a couple of centuries. They were those who blamed the sinking of the Titantic on man made climate change which was far longer than fifty years ago. There are those who looked at the Internal Combustion Engine the same way you look at solar and the electric car as something that would help prevent climate change. They of course considered methane from all the decomposing horse manure to be a greater threat at the time.

If you consider my arguement against your agrument stale then you should take a look at your argument. After all, mine's is in response to yours which means yours is older.
