CO2 makes up about .0033% of the atmosphere...so a 25% increase seems like a piddling amount to me. Anyway sunlight and CO2 are to plants like steak and potatoes are to man...real good victuals. Grow baby grow. Of course if we keep eating all that beef there will be less cow flatus and ventilation to make more CO2 in the atmosphere.

As far as not knowing what poison ivy looks like...just not the kind of thing you admit in public.

Why not mention what percentage of the air consists of carbon dioxide. Even though it may be up 35% it is insignificant. The recent volcano contributed more than mankind has in years.

This whole thing is bogus.

Keep laughing at the thought of climate change and then we'll see how funny it is when next winter is worse than the last, when we have to start shipping water from the Great Lakes to the Southwest, and half the east coast is underwater.
However, just because we've have an exceptionally nice spring this year I don't think anyone should assume it's due (or not due) to climate change.
And let's see how funny it is when Florida disappears under water and when dogs and cats start living together. Let's see how funny it is when the extra heat from the Earth causes a redirection of solar radiation which causes Saturn to lose one of its rings. The resulting imbalance causes us to spiral out of our place in the Galaxy and we get sucked into a black hole! All because you had to drive your SUV!

The best "stupid move" to deal with poison ivy is to wait till all the leafs are gone in the fall. Then, pull all the vines on trees off and any on the ground out...put them in a pile and burn them...make sure you get the smoke all over you...with as much skin bare as possible.

The people here saying that the warm spell....over the last 10 DAYS, were the same ones back in February saying that the extreme cold weather doesn't disprove Global Warming!

I seem to recall some hard frost and really cold weather around May 12th, but I could be wrong!!

Not true, volcanoes don't put out anything near what human activity puts out burning fossil fuels. Do an internet search on the subject if you don't believe me.

Yeah, those rising oceans have Miami looking like Venice Italy, just like Algore predicted. Global warming killed T Rex and his little buddies.
Oh I forgot you are more knowledgeable than the National Academy of Sciences and over 400 peer reviewed papers on climate change. And you still have time to post on newspapers' comment sections. Oh, just how do you do it all?

So, you believe that very small minority of industry-backed scientists. We all know they don't have a hidden agenda right? Industry would never lie to us would they? Industry is unbiased and would never put profit above lives or the environment right? What fantasy land are you living in bub?

, and they should learn to write about it appropriately. Unless cleaned off the oil in poison ivy can remain active on any surface for years and still cause a reaction (referring to their transition to climate change: "plants such as poison ivy are coming in sooner"). The vines continue to hold the oil regardless of when the leaves appear. Climate change or not, 90% of humans are allergic to the oil and can get a rash any time of the year. I got it after just picking up wood for a fire in the middle of winter (oh yeah, don't burn anything with PI on it, eek, that was bad...).
Regarding climate change: How long has the earth been here? How long have humans kept records? Only in our proud, self-righteous hearts can we claim to know anything about what happens on this tiny, terrestrial ball. Turn to the One who created not only the earth but the heavens, the Lord of all creation, when things like this create fear and uncertainty.
Amen and amen

Even after those global warming "experts" at East Anglia were EXPOSED for RIGGINIG their own data, we still have YO-YOs like the Dispatch carrying the water for these left-wing extremist whackos.

And people think the Dispatch is CONSERVATIVE???

I'm sure that once Obama RAISES EVERYONE'S TAXES in the name of "climate change", those roses will bloom one week later and Smith Farms will have to wait another 3 weeks until they pick those strawberries.

The only "scientists" that still support the global warming HOAX are those that stand to profit from it.

No DrC. I am referring to the growing number of scientists that say the whole thing is scientifically unfounded, bub.(Such a great way for an "intellect" to end an argument, but I digress).

Quick questions (And try to stay on task when answering):

-If CO2 in the atmosphere makes up 330 parts per million, how is such a low density having any effect on temperatures?

-CO2 levels in the past have been as much as 20 times greater than they are now, but the coorilating Global Temperatures don't match what the models being used today would have predicted. How do you reconcile that?

-Why have average temperatures on Mars increased over the last 20 years?
