Sorry, I don't pop bon bons and I do homework. I also research.

But I do like romance novels, epically for the sex parts.

Doomers: Debate us on climate change! Or would questioning your sad and twisted belief in THE END OF THE WORLD be committing a blasphemous act in your sick religion of death for the planet?
Be REAL liberals who love the planet, not just hate Humanity and be REAL stewards of the planet who don't wish and pray for this misery to be true.

RED ALERT!!

The Deniers are marching in Rio!

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/women-march-rio-prot...

These women are calling the "green economy" concept touted by organizers of the official Rio+20 gathering just "another stage of capitalist accumulation" after the failure of the current model.

AGW scince says they must be discredited and crushed immediately.

Houston SpaceBlue - we need a dossier immediately on all their academic credentials so we can ridicule all who don't have PhDs.

Now let's GO, people! Apply the scientific method and let's get all scientific on they asses!!

Now let’s all goose step like obedient GREENZIS to "all the scientists agree, we must do as they say, condemn your kids to a CO2 hell and deny the bible thumping neocons of fear mongering, all praise the belief, all praise "science".:):)

So much for the notion that the green economy is a socialist plot.

Masses of people attracted to an unchallenged authority such as Green is just a comfort food for spineless liberal pussies, so it's not really an intentional socialist conspiracy, it just is. I think climate blame belief was just omen worship judging by their mindless grunts of; “I see the signs”“The change is all around”
My favorite Greenzi grunt?; “Catastrophic/unstoppable warming is not necessarily the end of the world.”
Find me an IPCC report that doesn't qualify "crisis" with a "maybe" of some sort.

There are thousands of IPCC reports that always qualify any climate "crisis" with a "maybe" and therefore climate change is not worth paying attention to.“Perhaps” is not a good enough reason to commit the unspeakable act of condemning our children to a CO2 death in a “potentially” catastrophic climate crisis. We can no longer love the planet with fear and real responsible stewardship leads with courage and optimism not fear in addressing our biggest problem; population. We can do this but remove the CO2 spear of fear from my kids backs, although even they are laughing at climate blame now.

rofl! have a good chuckle watching this- total hypocrites & the clueless

Champagne flows as enviros demand lower living standards

&NR =1&feature=endscreen

They tell us in Brazil that their notions of "sustainable development" must rule our lives from here on out. But what is sustainable development? Darned if our would-be masters at ICLEI have a clue...... Enjoy!

Can you define sustainability? ICLEI can't...

You really need to learn the difference between communist and socialist. Of course they also have figured out that the green economy is nothing but a scam.

Ah yes. Another loony from the wanna-run-the-world organization. Sorry toots, I don't need anyone from a non-governmental entity telling me what I need or don't need. She has no clue what my, or anyone else needs are. Just trying to cling on to any kind of relevance, I guess.

United Nations Development Programme head Helen Clark told AFP in an interview:“So the issue is how to get human development that will see it continue to rise for the world’s poorest people and people in developing countries. Because frankly human development in the West – we don’t need more cars, more TV, whatever. Our needs are by and large satisfied, although the recession has put a lot of strains on that.”

Hey! Here's our favorite "green hypocrite" that hasn't had much to say lately. Guess he's been too busy with his own little "green" project.$16M here,$13$M there, pretty soon, it'll be adding up to some real money. Bernie Madoff Jr. anyone? How can ANY fund have that much ROR without something 'cooking'. I find it hilarious that this fund is being handed off from a guy that's under investigation to one that should be. No wonder they tried to do this on the down-low.

You want to talk big league corruption, murder and muscle? Look no farther than the global fossil fuels industry, the largest and probably the most subsidized industry in human history.

What other industry has pushed the world's largest nations into war for its own gain?

What other industry owns several of the world's major national governments?

What other industry controls world economics through a giant cartel?

What other industry gets more than $600 billion in annual subsidies even while it enjoys record profits far beyond that?

Well, let's see. Germany isn't an industry, BUT, it did push the world's largest nations into a war(TWICE) not FOR it's own gains, but FROM it's attempt at world domination.

The rest is all the same bunch of your blowhardy performance as usual. You seem to be saying that because the oil industry makes a lot of money, it's OK for the scam algore is leading. Sometimes, it's not what you say. It's what you don't say that makes your credibility zero, or less.

Bigger and more subsidized than the global arms industry??

You have an interesting perspective there.

Warped ... irrational ... ideologically twisted ... but interesting.

(BTW - that blinking red light? That's your Credibility Low Level Warning light - it just went into overdrive)
