No, in my world, the idea that one can not construct a planet with an atmosphere in a lab does not disprove the CO2 is a greenhouse gas. We have a planet. It's called Earth. Scientists have measured the effects.
Being a Greenhouse gas means that CO2 levels affect the amount of greenhouse gas effect there is.
I hase an education. Evidently far far far far better than yours.
For the last time for the challenged: I never disputed that CO2 was considered a greenhouse gas .... for your further education ... the following are also considered greenhouse gases:

water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone.

According to the “greenhouse effect” hypothesis itself the “greenhouse effect” requires the presence of water vapor to operate.

That is, water vapor not only accounts for the majority of the primary “greenhouse warming” in the atmosphere but it also, via “positive water vapor feedback,” is responsible for the much of the hypothetical warming caused by secondary “greenhouse gases” such as carbon dioxide.

Take note of the word hypothetical!

Again Dimwit ... attempt to educate yourself on the subject before making an A$$ out of yourself.

(BTW I'm sure you "hase" quite the education)

Class is in session, Dopey, now pay attention for once in your miserable life:
The Bush economy:
"Democrats like to claim the 1990s were a golden age while the Bush years have been disastrous. But as the nearby chart shows, Mr. Bush inherited a recession. The dot-com bubble had burst in 2000, and the economy was sinking even before the shock of 9/11, the corporate scandals and Sarbanes-Oxley. Mr. Bush's original tax-cut proposal was designed in part as insurance against such a downturn."
"However, to win over Senate Democrats, Mr. Bush both phased in the tax rate reductions and settled for politically popular but economically feckless tax rebate checks. Those checks provided a short-term lift to consumer spending but no real boost to risk-taking or business investment, which was still recovering from the tech implosion. By late 2002, the economy was struggling again -- which is when Mr. Bush proposed his second round of tax cuts."
"This time the tax rate reductions were immediate, and they included cuts in capital gains and dividends designed to spur business incentives. As the tax cuts became law in late May 2003, the recovery began in earnest. Growth averaged nearly 4% over the next three years, the jobless rate fell from 6.3% in June 2003 to 4.4% in October 2006, and real wages began to grow despite rising food and energy prices. The 2003 tax cut was the high point of Bush economic policy."
"Nonetheless, the budget deficit did fall mid-decade, as tax revenues soared with the expansion. In fiscal 2007, the deficit hit $161 billion, or an economically trivial 1.2% of GDP. That seems like a distant memory after the bailout blowout of the last few months, but the point is that the Bush tax cuts aren't responsible for the deficits. Before the recession hit, federal tax revenues had climbed above their postwar average of 18.3% of GDP."
The WSJ
Deny it.
Funny how you right whiners give George W Bush a pass for creating the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown, two quagmire wars & doubling the debt after starting with a balanced budget, because of a minor bump in the road dot-com bust.

If you want to stop drug trafficking, stop the demand for illegal drugs by either more severe penalties for illegal drug use (higher enforcement & incarceration costs) or just legalize them.
You people are dumber than sh*t.
I'm not calling anyone a coward but I will point out that Reagan had been a Democrat for most of his life, the president of a union for years and only converted to the Republican party after he became obsessed with the taxes he paid. George W. Bush was a draft dodger and a war monger....talk about a mix!!

Amen brother, all of these important facts the media seem to leave out because most Americans are by far more worried about money than anyother thing. If it wasn't for the greedy whites vote we would in no way have a black president. Poverty crime and murder was kept out of this election because our cares are far from those issues. Take a look at the stock market right now and see were all your money is going white America!

A peron has the right to say whatever they want. For clarification on this, read the First Amendment.

Now, do the bylaws of the NBA govern what a person is allowed to say in the privacy of their own home? No. Therefore, there can be no penalty imposed from information derived from an illegal recording.

Kareem Abdul Jabar has it exactly right. How about you people that ludicrously call yourselves "liberals" take a look at what he has to say about this.
The lil constitutional expert doesn't even know what the fk the first amendment affords.

I fully expect some Sterling lawsuits to emerge based largely on what you posted above. I just wish he could also sue the bas turd in the Oval Office, too.

Even before all of the big mouths racists quite down, the legal challenges will be forthcoming.

Update: An earlier version of this post identified Sterling as a Democrat. Although his political donations appear to have been exclusively to Democrats, a search of the L.A. County Registrar/Record confirms that he is a registered Republican.

Good morning to all you baggers out there. Obama is still our president, our economy is still improving, Obamacare is catching on despite of ever lie imaginable by the un-American right. Our war mentality has subsided, Wall Street is functioning well with records being set. America is finally starting to mind our own business and showing a more even handed approach to the Middle East, which is the source of many of past and present problems. No more of our military men and women are being sacrificed for political gain and monetary reasons courtesy of the Chickenhawks on the right. Many Americans now have healthcare along with hope, unfortunately the very rich thanks to the trickle down economics brought to you by the Republicans has been a dismal failure, but still they persist. The Republicans as a political party has more than proven that greed and power are their primary goals. The average working man and woman, immigration, homosexuals, equal pay, minimum wage, healthcare are all shunned by their party as they have successfully patterned their Elephant mascot to the point of walking in lock step with tail hooked to trunk playing follow the leader. By November most Americans will be able to see through the Republican onslaught of basically lies, false fears and in general plain old Bull sh1t.Which is pretty much all they have to offer.

WATCH: Clippers Fans Give Team Emotional Standing Ovation

Hours after the NBA slapped their owner with a lifetime ban, the Los Angeles Clippers were greeted with a raucous ovation by their home crowd on Tuesday.

A crowd of more than 19,000 — many clad in black shirts — turned out to watch the Clippers take on the Golden State Warriors in their first round playoff series.

Chants of "we are one" rang out throughout the Staples Center on a day that saw Clippers owner Donald Sterling punished by the league for making racist remarks to his girlfriend.

The Clippers ended up winning their game 113-103.

Where's the jobs lying sack of offal and failure Il Douche promised?
Oh, here's some:
The $5.3-billion Keystone XL Pipeline Project is the largest infrastructure project currently proposed in the United States. Construction of the 1,179-mile pipeline will require 9,000 skilled American workers. The project will provide jobs for welders, mechanics, electricians, pipefitters, laborers, safety coordinators, heavy equipment operators and other workers who rely on large construction projects for their livelihoods.
In addition to construction jobs, an estimated 7,000 U.S. jobs are being supported in manufacturing the steel pipe and the thousands of fittings, valves, pumps and control devices required for a major oil pipeline.
TransCanada has contracts with more than 50 suppliers across the U.S., including companies in Texas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Indiana, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Ohio, Arkansas, Kansas, California and Pennsylvania.
TransCanada employed 4,844 Americans in Oklahoma and Texas on construction of the $2.3-billion Gulf Coast Pipeline Project, which is expected to be complete by the end of this year.
Construction and development of the Keystone XL and Gulf Coast Pipeline Projects is anticipated to generate $20 billion in economic impact in the United States, including $99 million in local government revenues and $486 million in state government revenues during construction.
The pipelines will also generate an estimated $5 billion in additional property taxes during their operational life.

I suspect the pipeline will be approved & you whiners can rejoice that you have helped the evil socialist Canadians sell their oil to communist China.
