This is why we need EDUCATION IN AMERICA, folks. Too many morons like these people. Too many people who get their science from Limbaugh, Faux News, or cartoons.
Jesus...
i went to public school and learned about climate change and never heard anything about another view. we have the education yous peak of and that's the problem. i learned the truth on my own and not from retarded people that regurgitate blatant lies because they lack the ability of critical thinking, it must be from all the flouride in the water.

I suspect the subject was global warming, not climate change. And there are still no 'two sides' to reality...

Climate change is not really well defined even yet, so it is hard to separate out the two things. In fact, we may never tease out the effect of AGW on climate from the 'natural factors' and 'tipping points'. So climate change is usually not the subject. Global warming, on the other hand is established science (a theory) and therefore eligible to be taught in school as part of the normal curriculum.

Actually, your post is from KC which suggest that you have financial reasons for 'knowing' that science is bunkum. i.e. a coal miner. Not that your education was all that competent if you don't know enough to capitalize the first letter in a sentence and misspell fluoride. I suspect that you went down the mines as soon as the state allowed you out of school.

i don't and have never worked in a mine. i'm not trying to make my grammar perfect or my spelling because i'm lazy i saw i misspelled fluoride from the red squiggly line but i didn't care. i was referring to global warming from industrialization. climate change is real, that's how we had the ice age so yeah i know what you're saying. i do agree my education is mediocre at best. it would be different if schools were privatized because they would have to compete but instead it's gov. ran and most of my teachers i believe did it for easy work and summers off. they mostly gave us busy work just copying definitions and outlining the chapter and you don't even have to do that if you play football. sit down, shut up, repeat information, and confrom

just to be clear i do not believe CO2 emissions from people will change much of anything. climate has changed and always will regardless of people.

Let's analyze.

Fact: you are devoid of science.

Consequence: science talk appears stupid to you.

Explanation: stupidity resides in your ignorance.

Remedy: stop judging the posters as gullible but start learning from them like this one.

Truth: All above because man-made climate change is raging as you deny it in words play.

OPINION: i'm sure climate change 'rages' in your head almost constantly.

That means you have no science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or prel-calc in your poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa. Already, 6 toxic topix AGW deniers have no DEE-plooomaa. Should we count you in that number +1? Of course, you have no mathematics or science degrees.

Actually homeschooled kids often achieve very highly and graduate early, but your REAL agenda is displayed in your snotty little attack on teachers' unions. As with everything, you're a partisan knucklehead.

Oh, and I'm in my '50s and a college graduate, so you're kind of....WRONG....:)

You said I "wanted to get things without paying for them," asshat. What the f--k was that based on? Either explain or apologize, or both. Or die, I couldn't care less.
