Another week without an experimental test of climate change mitigation; that's how you can tell it's a hoax.

Dead because nobody wants to act in haste. Do nothing if you have no experiments testing climate change mitigation, use common sense.

I for one, am very content with global warming, and the results that it has brought.
I remember two years ago, right in my driveway, I was changing the brakes on my daughters car.
It was about 6pm, and the wind chill factor was 24 degrees below zero. I could only stay outside for about 15 minutes at a time.
Seriously, if it hadn't been for global warming I can't even imagine just how much colder it would have been. RESULTS: GOOD
I remember most of this year feeling colder then usual. What sense did it make that we were in August and it was very cool in the evening. Some evenings you needed a sweater, or long sleeve shirt. We didn't have the stiffling heat we usually have. RESULTS: GOOD

Now, mark my words, I predict, some lame-brain will make some ridiculuous comment, that it is due to global warming why it was soooooooo cool this spring and summer.

I had a job to do at the EPA in Kansas City, Ks. 2 years ago. You have to go through security, and after I did, the guard stopped me and said, "you forgot your coat."
There were several people near-by, so I thanked him because it was very cold outside.
I told him that I thank God every morning for global warming, because I can't even imagine just how cold it would be otherwise.
His answer to me was,(ARE YOU READY?)
"It's because of global warming that you are freezing."
Laughingly I said, "are you nuts?"
Very seriously he repied, "It's true, let me explain it to you."
I told him not to bother, anyone who thinks I would believe I am freezing because the globe is getting warmer, is an idiot.
Yes, Tom, it has been 5 years since you posted and the faithful are still claiming Man is causing all this cold weather... Only they found less people laughed when the evil is called "Climate Change".

"Our research revealed warming of the planet can be clearly detected since 1873 and that our oceans continue to absorb the great majority of this heat," said researcher and lead author Will Hobbs of the University of Tasmania's Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies and the Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. "Currently, scientists estimate the oceans absorb more than 90 percent of the heat trapped by greenhouse gases, and we attribute the global warming to anthropogenic (human-produced) causes."

That's "fewer" people, you grammar and mathematical idiot.

Lesser people would be people 3 feet tall. Did you mean 3-foot-tall people, or did you mean LESS of a number? One is amount, the other is quantity.

Your not so secret secret is that you can't read, and so it's no wonder that you can't understand the science. You don't know the difference AMONG(between) their, they're, and there, or rain, rein, or reign. Or yore, you're, and your.

Mississippi is a very literary state, if not literate. We have our stars. We learn the English language before we take our liberties with it, but we know it. You need to learn to read, and then you might accept what the scientific LiTERATURE says.

Experts know "human causes — primarily the burning of fossil fuels and the subsequent increase in atmospheric CO2 levels — are responsible for global warming."

We must act fast on global warming.

We don't agree. I'm curious; what's stopping you from acting fast on global warming? Did you get a sprain?

Who's we?

No logic, no science, why are you publishing lies to the world for years and years?

The people know fossil fuels and their combustion products are toxic, carcinogenic, and radioactive. But you don't accept the truth due to your greed.

Not CO2, it's vital for life as we know it. Atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide are neither toxic,carcinogenic nor radioactive. SpaceBlues is confused. Without CO2, we'd all die.

Fossil fuels and their combustion products that you love so much are toxic, carcinogenic, and radioactive.

The nature does not direct humanity to burn what is underground and instigate a man-made extinction, which is underway as we speak.

No logic, no science, you lie and lie to the world. You have been a traitor for a long time.

Why don't you live in a roomful of smoke to prove that you'd "die without CO2?"
