It is like making wars. When Government tells global warming is Americans' top environmental concern, that is what Americans say, too.

BECAUSE EVERYONE but apparently YOU knew, the FAKE MATH ISN'T REAL.

and, they KNEW a TREE isn't a MAGICAL TREEMOMITUR.

AND, THEY KNEW THE TROPOSPHERIC HOTSPOT NEVER APPEARING MEANT IT HAD NEVER BEEN TRUE IN THE FIRST PLACE; OR CLIMATIC PROCESSION WOULDN'T be WHAT it HAS been and IS NOW.

No surprise there. I would be surprise if it is even a world concern. Hard to be broke and hugry and still be concerned about the climate.

Ive posted this favorite rant of mine on many forums and so far not one greenie has ever been able to refute it. My take is the activities of man have no real or lasting effect on the planet. Because everything on the planet is a natural thing. granted much of those natural things like a snakes poison , viruses ,germs ,diseases or the gas from a volcanic vent can be harmful to organic life but they are still natural just the same. Given the fact that you cant take something and make it into nothing. That something will still exist somewhere,someway. in some form in some manner. and you cant take nothing and make it into something like pepertual motion it cant be done. Add to these facts that for every action there is an equal & opposite reaction its a wash. Even Steven. There should & will be just as many good positive things from mans activities or a warmer climate as bad negative things. and the planet will eventually recycle all those natural things man has rearranged at sometime ,somehow ,someway at someplace. There has never been a optimal or normal climate. No two centuries ,decades,years or days have experienced the same weather like snowflakes no two are just alike, There is no one who has the right to state just what the optimal climate would or should be.Myself I think warmer & wetter would be better! The activities of man have no real or lasting effect on the earth or its climate.

Wrong, what they are worried about is survival. Putting food on the table and if they could land one of those jobs with Exxon they would not turn it down.

It is hard to believe in global warming when you are freezing your but off and cannot afford the gas to work and the boss cannot afford to hire or offer anyone more hours because the money they would of used is being poured into the cost of gas. Why is gas so high, not Exxon but the enviromentalist movement who thought pouring ethanol into gas tanks and taking food off that poor families table was a good idea.

Funny thing is much of those Exxon profits end up in funds that support retirement plans. So that 80 year old retired teacher living on her pension is seeing some of that Exxon money.

If you want to see some of those "brain-washed & brain-dead" then go visit one of the Occupy groups. If you want to see some "un-eddykated, non-scientific" then go visit those who still believe in man made global warming and think wind and solar are going to be the answer when they have done nothing but fail in the past.

I know I have run across many. Ones who thought an one day boycott against BP was a good idea and had not realized that Mr Snow would of not even noticed the dip while those blue collared types would of been looking at a shorter paycheck as a result of such an action. Or the occupy wall street group that didn't affect those big investment firms one little bit but were driving the little resturants out of business.

Funny thing is how many on the left love to talk about how they love the little guy, the blue collar people even when they are trampling underneath.
