10,000?!?! I thought it began last Tuesday.

Fossils were created by satan to confuse us.

Catholic priests aren't molesting young boys. They're teaching them that gay sex is unnatural. It makes them uncomfortable doesn't it? Well, most of them anyway.

The end is near!! It was near last year too. And the year before that, and the year before that, and the year before that, and the..........

The earth is flat and the moon is a hologram.

God has a special place for the wicked. You'll burn and be tortured for all eternity if you don't believe in an invisible entity that there is no proof of. But he loves you.

Global warming is a hoax. It says so in the bible. I'm sure it says it. Or I'm pretty sure it does. But even if it doesn't, I can claim it does.

Your concern is duly noted.

However, you should focus such concern on those that are following Al Gore and his Flat Earth Society over the cliff.

The prognosis on the climate isn't good - We can cut emissions to reduce the risks of catastrophe and adapt to some changes that will inevitably occur.

We have to re-frame climate change as an exciting challenge for the most creative minds.

Cutting local air pollution from, say coal, can also reduce carbon emissions that cause warming; creating decent homes for poor people in countries like Bangladesh can improve lives whilst removing them from the path of flood surges.

They also tend to bring out leftwing homosexuals who will blow anyone that uses the word "science".

You leftwing homosexuals sure do have a limited vocabulary. I'm surprised you made it home from protesting the American flag in Mexifornia so soon.

Why would s pretend atheist such as yourself use biblical analogies on a true atheist such as me? I can see why Al Gore has been able to hook you so easily.

Just do yourself a favor; when he tells you to give him a full body massage to slow down globull warming, don't do it.

The report also says "climate change threatens human health and well-being in many ways." Those include smoke-filled air from more wildfires, smoggy air from pollution, more diseases from tainted food, water, mosquitoes and ticks. And then there's more pollen because of warming weather and the effects of carbon dioxide on plants. Ragweed pollen season has lengthened by 24 days in the Minnesota-North Dakota region between 1995 and 2011, the report says. In other parts of the Midwest, the pollen season has gotten longer by anywhere from 11 days to 20 days.

And all this will come with a hefty cost, the report says.

Flooding alone may cost $325 billion by the year 2100 in one of the worst-case scenarios, with $130 billion of that in Florida, the report says. Already the droughts and heat waves of 2011 and 2012 added about $10 billion to farm costs, the report says. Billion-dollar weather disasters have hit everywhere across the nation, but have hit Texas, Oklahoma and the Southeast most often, the report says.

Also tends to bring the left wingers spouting their opinions... with those being most, if not all, opinions that are based mainly on theories. Theories are also opinions.

Those people are twice as ignorant that those of us that will admit that we don't know how or when the Earth and the rest of the universe began...(an example of one of your opinions).

Because there hasn't been enough scientific evidence to prove anything for sure, and without any doubt.

You have no idea what "theory" means. It doesn't mean "opinion." "Opinion" is what tee baggrz and fundies say when they want to justify their bigotry or their ignorance: "I have an 'opinion.'"

Look the word "theory" up, Jethro.

Then be quiet.
