oh no...

first the arctic ice "disappeared". now it's the arctic beaches ... oh no!

here's a plan!
we can tax the shit out of oil, coal and natural gas producers, and, throw all that money at the u.n.!
who cares if the average american will have to choose between heating their home or feeding their kids?

money will fix it...and, even if it doesn't.
at the very least, it'll keep all the u.n. guys living in the style they've become accustomed to.
and THAT'S important!

put your stupid head back in the hole in the ground, and just shut up with the stupidity. Stop denying reality.

"Past studies probed links between ice content and Arctic coastal erosion rates — and never found any, notes Paul Overduin, a geoscientist with the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in Potsdam. It now appears such analyses, which considered ice conditions averaged over kilometer or longer stretches, represented too broad a scale, he says. By narrowing its focus to a meters-long scale in breadth and depth, Ping’s group found a strong and convincing link, he says."

Get it?

If you can't find evidence, change the scope until you do.

No, fuckwit, the Arctic ice is melting, glaciers are receding, polar bears are dying off, the Antarctic is shelving huge sections of ice. It's all true.
You're just in denial of the facts.

Also, lest we forget -- Obama took out Bin Laden in Pakistan.

It wasn't George Bush and it wasn't in Iraq.

And that's why you're really cranky today.

Since when has the arctic ice NOT melted?
when have glaciers NOT receded?
when have polar bears NOT died?
and when has the Antarctic NOT shelved huge sections of ice?

Yup... all true.

Who's denying those facts?

10,000 years ago, my state of Michigan was buried under a mile of ice. What caused all of that ice it melt? Must've been those darn cavemen driving around their SUV's, eh?

Gee, in the Carolinas and in Europe, they have been trucking in sand to save the beaches from erosion. People, shores erode, glaciers retreat and grow, it rains and floods and this has been going on since before history was written down, heck, it has happened since before opposable thumbs were fashionable. Earth has been warming for 100,000 plus years, and was very warm, right before the last ice age. Man did not cause that, man is not causing this.

Markers were dropped on the ice and immeasurable hours will be spent to find and remove them, You were told of the effects of total war but we needed to be exploited.

That was a climate cycle; which occur over 10 to 25K years.

The present climate change is taking place over a few decades. The two are incomparable.

I hope you were able to see the Northern Lights last week; last time I was in Northern Michigan I saw a wonderful display over Lake Superior.

Hmmmmmm...Back in the 70's they were all telling us to run for the hills due to a coming ice age. Tell your liberal loon propagandists to make up their minds.

There are no "liberal loons." There is no "ice age."

You are in logical denial of science & scientific theory.

You're batting .500 as you're wrong about one thing and right about another. Every liberal I've ever met or have known about has been a loon. You're right about there being no ice age though, and that was my point. Back in the day, your ilk were preaching to us about the coming ice age and were not only wrong, but actually did a 180 and reversed their decision to preach to us about the earth warming. Ha-ha!! Silly libs. Make up your minds.

You're just in denial of the facts.
"The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the polar bear population is currently at 20,000 to 25,000 bears, up from as low as 5,000-10,000 bears in the 1950s and 1960s. A 2002 U.S. Geological Survey of wildlife in the Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain noted that the polar bear populations 'may now be near historic highs,'" it read.

Ha-ha-ha!!! Who's the one in denial of the facts? Typical liberal tactic. If you can't make your point with facts, just lie.
