Which one do you want to talk about? Oh, and technically it is 'Climate Change Response to AGW' to differentiate it from any natural climate shifts.
<quoted text>
AGW is NOT a natural shift. They have proven that. So the climate response to AGW will ALSO not be 'natural'.
"They" have not proven a damn thing! "They" have gotten together and decided through consensus that their is manmade gobal climate change. "Their" hope is to force this through with the help of our libtard government officals and earth first zealots like you. The word is out, the gig is up, the fat lady is singing.....We know the con and know the players and we know this weather pattern will change in a decade or more wether we do something or not.

Science works both ways. Science spouted by Al Gore is NOT science (or is claiming to being a 'Climatologist' ANOTHER achievement of his; alongside of inventing the Internet and being the inspritation for 'Love Story'? If so I'd sure like to see his credentials and read his thesis - which 'An Inconvenient Truth' does not qualify as being)!
Science developed by research, analysis, sensor readings and both geologic and vegetative (both obtained via core samples) study of historical trends by respected individuals and groups who have obtained degrees from accredited Universities and who understand the broad evolution of our climate and ignore stand-alone 'snapshots-in-time' is.

Isn't that the same Bill Clinton that failed to send the Kyoto Protocol to the Senate for a vote?

If Clinton was so concerned about 'Greenhouse Gas' Emissions; why did he let the Kyoto Treaty sit on his desk for the final 2 1/2 years of his Presidency?
It's not like he had a war or two distracting him - all he had was the impeachment trial and that was over (in his favor) well before he left office.
So why did it sit there? So that the next guy - who ever it was; regardless of party affiliation - could sign it and look the fool or not sign it and look the fool. And at that time; Bush had not stepped up for the GOP nomination; Gore on the other hand had already made clear his intention of running.
Six of one; half a dozen of the other. But if he was serious; if GORE was serious; why didn't CLINTON sign it when he received it.
This question has never been answered; satisfactorily or otherwise.
President Clinton signed the treaty, but never sent it to the Senate for ratification.

BTW, Al Gore was President Pro Tem of the Senate at the time, he's as guilty as Clinton.

So if Clinton signed it; what was all that nonsense about BUSH not being willing to sign it?
Smokescreen? A 'Cap and Trade' of political toxins as opposed to carbon emissons. In otherwords - a shifting of the blame.
Seems to be.
Typical Liberal revisionism.

I know that Rush Limbaugh said that volcanoes pollute more than man, but as usual he was dead wrong.

There was no reason to send it to the Senate. It was a foregone conclusion that the Republicans in power would not pass it.

Oh no, say it isn't so. Clinton attempting to capture Gore's leadership over unproven science of man caused global warming. Gore got his billions and now Clinton wants his. Who in their right minds can accept anything this obvious greedy liar has to say about anything. He is a liar and not even a good one.

First his VP is the expert on this and now, not to be outdone, Clinton has to run his mouth. I suggest that neither of them have a clue to what is going on with the climate. What Jimmy Carter, then Al Gore, and now Clinton has proven to me is that when a Democrat leaves the WH or his second in command, they should either have their tounges removed, or go straight to Arlington for rest. Generally I like Clinton, but he needs to stop campaigning for Hillary.
