Those searching for the Malaysian flight found tons of litter all over the remote ocean locations. Glad to hear it wasn't humans that caused that litter. Just think how messy everything would be if humans could affect the environment. It is nice to know that when an oil tanker spills millions of gallons of oil in our remaining water reserves, it wasn't humans behind it and nothing could have been done to allow people access to drinking water. Millions of tons of pollutants in the air would certainly not have any effect on anything. Our weather going crazy is just another liberal fantasy. It's always been this bad or worse.

I was not aware that Marcus Rubio earned a degree in climatology at the University of Miami Law School, from which he graduated. Apparently, the tea partiers see no reason to believe the experts when their scientifically obtained facts are inconsistent with their doctrine. How smart is that?

Depriving the third world of electricity and enforcing eugenics policies responsible for mass genocide is now the mainstay of Marxist Democrat world policy. There Global 2000 report in the 70s said cities would be under water by 2000. Democrats need to look out their windows and especially look at the sea level islands in the Pacific... duh, they're still there after many hundreds of years!

Leftist control freaks are the real deniers.

They say...

1) All skeptics are funded by big oil.

2)Peer reviews are infallible.

3)Having a PhD makes you a messenger from God.

4)If you are skeptical then you ether evil of stupid.

5)Measuring 10 million outcomes is statistically equivalent of partially measuring one complex outcome.

And my favorite:
6 Using unverified dynamics to filter and extrapolate provides reliable predictions.

Hey climate denier!
Why do you deny that there has been no statistically-significant warming since 1995?
Why do you deny that the rate of the current warming is statistically indistinguishable from earlier warm periods?
Why do you deny that Minoan, Egyptian, Roman and Medieval times were probably warmer than recently?
Why do you deny that CO2 follows, not leads temperature.
Why do you deny that H2O causes much more greenhouse effect than CO2?
Why do you deny that 95% of the annual CO2 emission is from nature?
ó
Why do you deny that the glaciers retreated FASTER in the 1930s than recently
Why do you deny that the current ocean rise is within historical norms.
Why do you deny that solar cycles are a better fit to climate than CO2?
Why do you deny that manís CO2 has never been proven to cause dangerous warming?
Of course the reason is that if you admit any of the above, you admit that there is NO EVIDENCE that manís CO2 is causing dangerous global warming.
Why are you anti-science?

You guys are illogical throwbacks to the dark ages of emotional anti-science.

That's some crazy crap right there.

No wonder you do not care about clean air, you are producing a lot of hot air and it stinks something awful.

We don't.

But we don't omit to mention that the 95% from nature is part of the carbon cycle and reabsorbed.

We don't.

But we might point out that a tiny blip in 1930 is not really significant when looking at the long term trend.

Because every scientific academy on the planet has looked at the evidence and said this is true.

Cordwanger Troutbrain has the brain of a trout, and he's deprived it of oxygen with all the cordwanging he's been doing, killing off the few grey cells he has.

Result, very stupid denial.

Obtaining fossil fuels, and burning them could not possibly change our atmosphere.
There is too much money involved.
Giant corporations know what is best. They always put the needs of the many above the greed of a few.
If Big Oil and the Coal industry say fossil fuels cannot change the atmosphere, then we must trust them. They have all the money so they must be right.
