Does Obama Boo Boo cause Earth warming or climate change?
This is a perfect example of the really childish shit we have on this thread.

On the other hand, it's the perfect denier question too. So simple. So political.

then he had to shut and back track when scientist said there's no connection.
your crowd will take any weather event if it helps your political agenda.

That's the whole point, We would not be here arguing if global warming had no effect. But every study on climate change leads to extreme weather yet you choose to deny it.

And that's your problem.

You listen to the politics, and ignore the science.

lol....no, i'm not a paid poster, son.
politics have little to do with climate change from where i stand, but i can see it has everything to do with the subject where your crowd is concerned.
the science hasn't made a study showing what benefit co2 mitigation will actually accomplish. it's very unscientific to promote something that you haven't even tested.

In which case, you know the truth, yet prostitute yourself.

Which makes you a scumbag.

Do you have any science you would like to show us?

Yep. When the atmosphere and oceans get warmer, ice melts. No. Even if all the ice in Antarctica melts the whole world will not be flooded, the movie "Water World" notwithstanding. It would only raise sea levels about 200 feet.

Oh! By the way, what is the elevation of San Francisco?

Another country heard from! In this case, California, the land of fruits and nuts! Which one are you?!

My GGrandma thought the world was coming to an end in the 60's, the way we were acting. It didn't.

Caveman, we just as well give up and let them believe what they want to believe. It's a lost cause. A lot of leaders around the world - and the U.S. military - have already concluded that trying to mitigate the damage by reducing CO2 emission is a lost cause and are making plans to deal with the consequences. If the "Expert" in San Francisco wants to think it doesn't matter, let him.

What's it to you and me if all the polar ice caps melt? My old high school geology book says that if all the ice melted the seas would only rise 240 feet. We're two old Southern boys that live in places that are at over 400 feet elevation.

'Course San Francisco is only 91 feet, but, hey, all those wrecked, submerged buildings ought to make a great artificial reef. Good fishing.
