Cool. Then the scientists who predicted a huge cold blast due to our changing climate were absolutely correct again. I say again because those same scientists also accurately predicted the hottest decade in recorded history.

"Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities, and most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position. The following is a partial list of these organizations, along with links to their published statements and a selection of related resources.

AMERICAN SCIENTIFIC SOCIETIES

Statement on climate change from 18 scientific associations

"Observations throughout the world make it clear that climate change is occurring, and rigorous scientific research demonstrates that the greenhouse gases emitted by human activities are the primary driver." (2009)
AAAS emblem
American Association for the Advancement of Science

"The scientific evidence is clear: global climate change caused by human activities is occurring now, and it is a growing threat to society." (2006)
ACS emblem
American Chemical Society

"Comprehensive scientific assessments of our current and potential future climates clearly indicate that climate change is real, largely attributable to emissions from human activities, and potentially a very serious problem." (2004)
AGU emblem
American Geophysical Union

"Human&#8208;induced climate change requires urgent action. Humanity is the major influence on the global climate change observed over the past 50 years. Rapid societal responses can significantly lessen negative outcomes." (Adopted 2003, revised and reaffirmed 2007, 2012, 2013)
AMA emblem
American Medical Association

"Our AMA ... supports the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fourth assessment report and concurs with the scientific consensus that the Earth is undergoing adverse global climate change and that anthropogenic contributions are significant." (2013)
AMS emblem
American Meteorological Society

"It is clear from extensive scientific evidence that the dominant cause of the rapid change in climate of the past half century is human-induced increases in the amount of atmospheric greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide (CO2), chlorofluorocarbons, methane, and nitrous oxide." (2012)
APS emblem
American Physical Society

"The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now." (2007)
GSA emblem
The Geological Society of America

"The Geological Society of America (GSA) concurs with assessments by the National Academies of Science (2005), the National Research Council (2006), and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007) that global climate has warmed and that human activities (mainly greenhouse&#8208;gas emissions) account for most of the warming since the middle 1900s." (2006; revised 2010)"

As far as I can determine, the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) has yet to release their statement on global warming...

Shouldn't you be stocking your Doomsday bunker with low efficiency light bulbs right about now? If you really want something that will make you p1ss your pants...again...while you "ROFLMAO " like a drunken 15 year old girl sending text messages to her BFF, stop and think how stupid someone would have to be to stick with outdated climate change denial propaganda, when the Koch Brothers AND Exxon Mobile, companies that have spent millions to refute climate change, now publically state that climate change is certainly happening and is caused by man. Looks like your Big Daddy Koch told you to go fck yourself. Just like the hard working American voters did. Just like the GOP is currently doing. Don't you EVER forget that. Now go get in line with the Gay Date Drifter and the 18 Wheeled Climate Lab.

Global Warming Alarmists Caught Doctoring '97-Percent Consensus' Claims
http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamestaylor/2013/...
More from James Taylor, the rightwing propaganda tool you always have to run to for your "facts". Funny, all the scandals and lies old James has been up to. Easily found if you Google his name, but seeing this is the third time you have been called out on this specific source, it's obvious how desperate you are getting. Let me know if you need real facts from unbiased sources. I'll be reading an article from National Geographic on the obvious changes to our climate that are actively taking place, while you and yours fade disgracefully further back into the fog of ignorance this great nation has left in the past. Exxon Mobile called. They said the war is over, son. You lost and you can slither back into your gunshow conspiracy theorist world again. We'll let you guys know if we need any tinfoil hats or corporate sponsored politicians.

So skip over the last 20 years and take it as a sign that climate change is a hoax...right?
NOW THAT'S HILARIOUS!!!!!

Don't forget, before the the spin title "climate ccccchange" was known as GLOBAL WARMING.

Now that the spin title has been changed, GLOBAL WARMING errr Climate Change is causing record cold weather and forcing the ice cap to increase in size.

That is rich.

Well there is no doubt that man creates global warming gasses, but no more than cow farts, chicken farts, volcanos or even water vapor. It's quite natural really.
The question is whether it's contributing to the so-called climate change? Or is it more likely that climate change has been around for many centuries?
Liberals are mostly atheists, therefore they believe all the fantastic things that take place on this earth is dumb luck. The fact that we get our energy from a star millions and millions of miles away, that food magically grows out of the ground, even the insects with a brain so small one would need a microscope to see it perform their duties as if they were computerized, that water magically falls from the sky to grow the food, that unlike no other planet, we have oxygen to sustain life, these are all coincidences and there is no superior being controlling these things.
Those of us that understand the universe realize that these hundreds if not thousands of events that take place every day has to be controlled by some superior being, and it is that superior being that gave us wood to burn, oil to stay warm, the components of energy we use for travel.
Because of their lack of faith, liberals believe man controls all these things and not God. Therefore, it is up to man to control the climate since there is no God to do it for us.
Good post.....

I have already agreed that the earth is getting warmer.

10,000 years ago Ohio was covered by ice 1 mile thick so yes it's getting warmer.
I like it warm.
I doubt that ancient American campfires were the cause of the glacier melting.

We will need to worry if it keeps getting colder like it did in the little ice age.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Ice_Age

I believe in cyclical climate change. No doubt the climate will continue to change.
Likely volcanic activity, sunspots, the tilt of the axis of the earth etc. will be the reason.

Only arrogant / ignorant folks and wealth redistribution socialists believe that man can change the climate of the planet.
Of course you also have the folks like Al Gore and the Chicago Climate exchange that stand to make a butt load of money off of carbon offset trading.

Well, you can do one of two things: you can prove Taylor wrong, or you can click the hyperlink in the story that you probably never read. And while you're at it, post one story where Taylor was lying about something and I'll look into it.
I did click on your link, and read the article. That's how I know that the author James Taylor is the "senior fellow for environment policy at the Heartland Institute."

"An anonymous donor called "Heartland Insider" released documents in February 2012 of the Heartland Institute's budget, fundraising plan, and Climate Strategy for 2012.

The 2012 Heartland Climate Strategy states that the Institute got $200,000 in 2011 from the Charles G. Koch Foundation, and nearly a million from an anonymous donor. Goals of the organization included:

working with David E. Wojick on "providing [K-12 school] curriculum that shows that the topic of climate change is controversial and uncertain - two key points that are effective at dissuading teachers from teaching science";
"sponsor[ing] the NIPCC [Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change] to undermine the official United Nation's IPCC [International Panel on Climate Change] reports" including paying "a team of writers $388,000 in 2011 to work on a series of editions of Climate Change Reconsidered"; and funding climate change deniers Craig Idso ($11,600 per month), Fred Singer ($5,000 a month), James Taylor who has written a lot about Climategate through his Forbes blog, and Anthony Watts ($90,000 for 2012) to challenge "warmist science essays that counter our own," including funding "external networks (such as WUWT [Watts Up With That?] and other groups capable of rapidly mobilizing responses to new scientific findings, news stories, or unfavorable blog posts)."

http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php...

Can you understand why I am not impressed with Mr. Taylor's reporting?

What's your response to the 18 major scientific organizations that endorsed the conclusion of man made global warming? How about a list of the SCIENTIFIC organizations that support your point of view?

This "superior being" that controls everything. How did it come to be? Can you offer some objective evidence for it's existence, rather than having us rely on your understanding of the universe?

"An overwhelming majority of the scientific community accepts evolution as the dominant scientific theory of biological diversity. Nearly every scientific society, representing hundreds of thousands of scientists, has issued statements rejecting intelligent design and a petition supporting the teaching of evolutionary biology was endorsed by 72 US Nobel Prize winners. Additionally, US courts have ruled in favor of teaching evolution in science classrooms, and against teaching creationism, in numerous cases such as Edwards v. Aguillard, Hendren v. Campbell, McLean v. Arkansas and Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District."

Look at how many times those conniving Tea Baggers (also see despised by America) have deleted their browsing history and judged their own posts to make it seem like they are more than just a kooky fringe group. I know. Create a few more profiles and you can sit and agree with yourself all day. Us "Liberals" (Also see hard working, tax paying Americans who EARNED what they have) will stick with the overwhelming majority of the scientific community. You guys can go with "Invisible Sky Daddy says I'm right".

Now reach out those fat, soft, little trust fund baby hands and say "Gimme Gimme". Aaaaah ha ha ha ha ha ha!

So the person who entered the discussion by seeking a gay dating website, has a quote that says "Lube Me" and talks about smoking meth all the time thinks he sees white boys hiding everywhere. Interesting.

Don't forget "I don't believe in climate change" followed by "Well it's happening, but it's not man made" followed by "Well, it's happening and it's man made but we can't stop it" and soon to be "It's God's punishment on the gays!"

The only blatant hoaxes I have seen are the PetitionProject- proven to be complete propaganda and garbage and Climategate- proven to be complete propaganda and garbage. Now post us a link from the oil billionaire sponsored Heritage Foundation because the folks that cured Polio and put a man on the moon say you are f'ing retarded. Oh, so does The Pope and now the GOP. Now cue the song "Tiny Bubbles" because that's what you fringe group Fox News kooks have been reduced to.

"Climategate"

Six official investigations have cleared scientists of accusations of wrongdoing.
A three-part Penn State University cleared scientist Michael Mann of wrongdoing.
Two reviews commissioned by the University of East Anglia"supported the honesty and integrity of scientists in the Climatic Research Unit."
A UK Parliament report concluded that the emails have no bearing on our understanding of climate science and that claims against UEA scientists are misleading.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Inspector General's office concluded there was no evidence of wrongdoing on behalf of their employees.
The National Science Foundation's Inspector General's office concluded, "Lacking any direct evidence of research misconduct...we are closing this investigation with no further action."

Other agencies and media outlets have investigated the substance of the emails.
The Environmental Protection Agency, in response to petitions against action to curb heat-trapping emissions, dismissed attacks on the science rooted in the stolen emails.
Factcheck.org debunked claims that the emails put the conclusions of climate science into question.
Politifact.com rated claims that the emails falsify climate science as "false."
An Associated Press review of the emails found that they "don't undercut the vast body of evidence showing the world is warming because of man-made greenhouse gas emissions."
