I've posted it lots of times. The point is, the limo liberals get away with what they disparage us about. When Al Gore sold his green biz to an oil company, that sealed the deal.
Sorry, no pictures. Worms, run them over!

Yes, he earned the $$$. No defense is necessary.

Are you still explaining the 47 percent of the mitt?

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.

They were all fired for lying. All the Warming Gurus of Europe that pushed the fraud. All gone. The emails proved the fraud. Yet there are still some people who are so gullible and stupid? Like Obama for instance?

The truth .. More than 150 scientists from over 20 different countries will meet to discuss the responses of ecosystems to climate variability and weather extremes, based on experimental evidence and modeling of the biosphere-climate system.

Rising atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations not only lead to global warming but also to increased climate variability and extreme weather situations. Within the past decade an exceptionally high number of extreme heat waves occurred around the globe: Record breaking temperatures hit central Western Europe in 2003, causing a large number of fatalities due to heat stress. In South-Eastern Europe dramatic wildfires ravaged in 2007, especially in Greece. Together with huge forest fires, an extraordinary heat wave with record temperatures led to a high and long-lasting air pollution in western Russia in 2010. The drought in 2011-2012 was reported to be one of the most severe ever recorded in the United States, with an economic loss of billions of dollars and heavy crop failures.

Not only severe droughts and heat waves but also extreme precipitation and windstorms can impact the structure, composition, and functioning of terrestrial ecosystems. The importance of extreme climatic events for the carbon balance became clear after the 2003 heat wave in Central and Southern Europe. Triggered by this month-long anomaly, the ecosystems lost as much CO2 as they had absorbed from the atmosphere through the previous four years under normal weather conditions.

Recent evidence also suggests that extreme weather may influence the carbon balance of our terrestrial biosphere such that it accelerates climate change. Co-organizers Dr. Michael Bahn, Associate Professor at University of Innsbruck, and Dr. Markus Reichstein, Max-Planck Director at the Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, state unanimously:“Several lines of evidence indicate water-cycle extremes, in particular droughts, being a dominant risk for the carbon cycle in large parts of Europe. The largest and most diverse and enduring effects of extreme events are expected in forests.”

Global Warming? nah, just the earth continuing to cool from the ice age....once the globe was covered with ice, now its just the polar regions....as the earth warms, ice melts, it just has not gotten to the poles yet....cant be stopped, and nothing man can do will change it. when we run out of petroleum, whatever tiny damage it has done, the earth will cleanse itself in a couple of days, thats why God created the winds, oceans, rain, trees, rivers, fields of grass, they cleanse the air. Don't worry about it, we got a few hundred more years before its a problem. It could even be God's way of cleansing the earth of humans, so he can try again in a few million years, this attempt didn't work, he may try again.

A "bat" mitzvah is for girls. Is there something we don't know about Henry Waxman?
You may mean a "bar" mitzvah, which is both a Jewish boy's coming-of-age ceremony, and a ranch in Amarillo, Texas.

I know what a bar/bat mitvah is, real men don't wear bowties.

Joe the plumber will attest to that...when obama told him he was gonna spread the wealth around, that shoulda been a clue.
