I doubt that anyone is forced to work for UVA.

I don't think the real debate is climate change anymore; I think the real debate is whether it is anthropogenic or not.

Or perhaps it is just nature. You know, tides and currents that cause shifting sands and changing coast lines.

At one point I had my doubts but given the extremes of human activity across the planet from deforestation to mining to industrial waste and gases being pumped into the atmosphere I suspect we're creating or accelerating an inevitable irreversible end to earths atmosphere. Our sun doesn't care about what we think about climate chabge, it will keep blasting us with gama rays ever day till the last cockroach takes its last breath.

Yes, that is what I posted when I posted, "I think the real debate is whether it is anthropogenic or not." I didn't draw any conclusions as to the cause.

You and I are in agreement. I believe we have an impact, as to how much, I don't know. Are we peeing in the ocean and expecting high tide, or are we a brick in a soup bowl?

"deforestation" Actually this would lower the CO2 levels wouldn't it? There is climate change but man has had little to no effect on it. Do you environuts actually think you can change the course of nature? Since the time of the super continent Pangaea, our planet has decided to do whatever it wants without any help from anyone.

Someone wondered if sealevel rise is "anthropogenic" or not. Of course, it is at least partially man-made: it wouldn't be rising unless more polar ice were melting and entering the world's oceans, and the melting is at least partially due to temperature rise rise due to greenhouse gases, due to burning of fossil fuels. QED. In the Chesapeake Bay region there is also another factor at work, land subsidence due to uplift further north, due to retreat of the glaciers (this despite the fact that the glaciers disappeared from the temperate latitudes thousands of years ago.) This effect is causing sealevel to rise almost twice as fast in the Chesapeake Bay area than in other parts of eastern North America. So, "anthropogenic"? Yes, somewhat.

Yes and Manhattan was once covered in glaicers.

I find it interesting that you called her an "environuts" when she admitted to being a doubter, and changed her opinion.

I wonder what you know-it-alls think..

Okay, it's a publication reporting on pentagon results, but somehow it must be biased, so let me ask the a koch brother study
http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-pn-ko...

This is why we are RINOs and are not voting for your candidate, we are free thinking conservatives but you continue to alienate us and violate our personal property and civil rights.

Was that before or after Jesus visited the North America? Did he fly here on a pterodactyl? Mormonism is now mainstream Christianity.

Can you point out to me where in her statement she is doubting "man made global warming"? And please explain to me how I am infringing on your civil rights? Lastly, how is Mormonism now mainstream?

The water is not rising. The ground is sinking due to the weight of the large, heavy structures giant corporations build as monuments to themselves.

Certain entities would like you to think there is a debate on the radiative forcing causing climate change. There is not. Since our atmosphere is a closed system, we can now measure what goes in and what goes out with relative certainty. I work as a climatologist for a private firm in town, and it's been 15 years since the conclusion was derived that humans play 90-100% of a role in modern climate change.

To hear this crap from a bunch of pseudo intellectual pin heads is not surprising. Is this the best issue they can find to waste their time on?

Who do these "so called" scientists think they are? Odummy was supposed to lower the sea levels. They're stealing his thunder. Or is sea level reduction just one more unfulfilled promise from his 2008 campaign?

But these scientists and odummy have one thing in common: much talk, no accomplishment.

This is how her post started:
.
"At one point I had my doubts "
.
You personally aren't, big government is, which you support.(you pretend you don't, but main stream republicanism is not for small government, and make no doubt about it the Tea Party is nothing more than the CCA under a different name. "You can polish a turd, but it's still a turd." or "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
.
Romney is a candidate, Romney is mormon, presidential candidates give religion legitimacy. If A=B, and B=C, then A must equal C. It's like when JFK was elected, Catholics certainly became less discriminated against. I bet Tom Cruise can't wait to get a scientologist up there.
