They have no evidence, only the science of Global Warming usurped by the loony left who would have all of us living in the stone age so that they could claim to save a couple of trees. Their science has been debunked and was shown that numbers were massaged to make their flawed point. Yet after all of this they still cling to the falsified reports from the Global Warming scientists as if it were fact.

And that's likely to continue for a while longer, until all the rats abandon the ship of fools.
I gather you live near to the coast of FLA, so tell me, how does sea level look at your location?

The National Academy of Science and the American Meteorological Society are the "loony left?"

No one can "win" an argument on Topix, and deniers and Fox just make stuff up. They are dirtbags. Many right wingers are.

I figured you couldn't resist the wingnut catnip of climate change and corporate power.
This thread was running a little low on lies so you got here just in time.
Your "Climate-gate" exists only in the fevered minds of rightwingers.
Is there anything you wouldn't allow coporations to do to your fellow Americans?

The answer to your question is yes. I wouldn't let them be free from the free market. I wouldn't let them pay for 100% of your entitlements. I would simplify the tax code so that everyone pay some taxes including corporations like GE. What lies did I tell. Reply with facts only from a credible source.

Is there anything you would not do to gain another vote for Cap and Trade?

There's going to be some name calling in court soon:

It may not be the end of the line for climate alarmism, but it'll make a few alarmists wonder how much time they have left before their ship sinks completely.

Right, dirtbag. Rupert Murdoch hereby "proves" that not only Hansen, but the NAS, the American Meteorological Society, and virtually all peer reviewed climate science is wrong, and Fox and Koch are right.

You're a piece of crap.

All publicly funded sources and organizations are climate change believers and all private are denier based. What does that tell you? When publicly funded organizations such as what you mentioned are paid to study the effects, denying climate change is impossible and therefore implied. The gun of political correctness is held to the heads of every publicly funded science organization. Science organizations vaguely and in noncommittal terms endorse climate change but it is nothing more than political correctness on steroids. And perception is the key here and to not take that into account is trailer-parkish considering climate change is supposed to be the ultimate planetary emergency ever, a virtual comet hit of an emergency.
Do you see these science organizations marching in the streets? This IS the biggest emergency ever isn’t it? Do you see the CONCERNED scientists trying to get on CNN as the world walks away from Carbon Mania? Perception boy, perception.
Obama never even mentioned the crisis in his state of the union and if there really were thousands of consensus scientists as you believe, they would be acting like it is an emergency and demanding Obama lead the world to safety from the biggest threat ever.
Now do you see how this is all just mass insanity, omen worship and politics and not science?
