Hey Birther, your Benghazi moniker alerts us that you will post things without understanding or caring to how you are distorting them.
The fuel you reference, which is also reported as going for $59 a gallon, is part of a "pilot" program to meet future needs at reduced cost, and with more secure sourcing (algae.)
If you had any clue you would know you are purposefully presenting this issue as though all fuel bought by the Pentagon is this fuel. But since you don't know anything we can't exactly say you're lying on purpose about it.
It's a research project.
If tee baggrz and fundies were actually upset about Pentagon fuel costs then they'd have been demanding military and thus fuel cuts in the budget for decades. They have not been. Meanwhile, whether at market prices or not, the US military remains one of the globe's largest users of fuels....
Like all programs piloted by liberals, this one crashed.

Of course it's correct that your purposeful confusion that current effects means there couldn't also be future ones is nutty.
No one with more than an undergrad degree takes your line that co2 can't have any causal role in the ecosystem because "it's just a trace gas." No one. Everyone understands and accepts the basic theory of greenhouse gases...even when they're funded by the fossil fuels industry and thus dispute that the consequences will be major.
Except for the sort of clowns on hate radio and Fox whom you revere. I meant no serious academic disputes this basic, basic, completely understood mechanism.
thanks for your stupid response,

i'd just like to know why i should agree with your assertion that co2 will have catastrophic effects if it hasn't already.

i have two degrees, but someone could beat you in a debate with a g.e.d., son.

all these kooks say we must mitigate man made co2 emissions. they insist they have all the answers. none of them are willing to say what mitigation will accomplish.
is their belief system all faith based??? i guess it has to be. nobody from the alarmist crowd can say anything without a can...might...or could.

Both the current and various, future scenarios are laid out in the report you claim to have read. The current effects are even laid out in the headline.
You are anti rational is all.
And yes, every qualified scientist knows human derived co2 emissions are having and will have effects. At best among qualified scientists there are about two who think there is an over reaction to these effects. That's all. There are no qualified debunkers remaining. Just mouthbreathing Fox viewers who are bigoted and ignorant and self satisfied.
why do claim to have facts on your side then use ad populum argumentum as substantiation, son?

Hey Birther, that research project which you simultaneously knew nothing about _and_ lied about certainly continues.

That's what happens in R&D and in basic science.

Anyway I corrected you on the facts of that little talking point, and being true to the anti rational tradition of tee baggrz and fundies you totally ignored that information. Disgusting, but expected.

You're anti rational trash, that's why. Lying, misinformed, immune to new information. You are beneath minimal standards. Finally it is correct to just start saying what's wrong with you.

BTW, just for the record, is the earth more than 10000 years old?

You avoided the content._No one_ except for some scrip kiting hippo on the radio thinks co2 has no effect because it's a "trace" substance. No one.

It's already having effects. You already denied that, but it's in the headline. The fact you haven't and couldn't read the report is thus moot.

And it's a matter of the amount of co2 in the atmosphere. That amount is increasing. As it increases the effects we are now seeing will increase.

You aren't even asking a question. It's too deranged even for buybull simpletons or trolls.

By the way, you have two higher education degrees like your average, fundie seven year old has two post high school degrees.

<quoted text>Thanks for answering. You are indeed a tough nut to crack. Here are a few facts:
- The global sea level rose in the last century. In the last decade, the rate is almost double that of the last century.
- The earth has warmed since 1880. Surface temperatures continue to increase.
- The oceans are warming, absorbing much of this increased heat.
- There is a decrease in mass of ice sheets in Greenland and the Antarctic.
- Arctic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades.
- Glaciers are retreating almost everywhere, including the Alps, Himalayas, Andes, Rockies, Alaska, Africa.
Indeed I have witnessed this first hand.
- Record high temperatures in the U.S. have been increasing, while low temperatures have become less frequent.
- Humans have been emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, one result being an increase in the acidity of the surface of ocean waters.
Global warming is real, and has already reached dangerous levels. The human contribution is undeniable. There is no conspiracy. The data are not some concoction for profit reasons.
This has to stop being a partisan issue. We had all better get together on this one and do what we can to buy more time. The planet is burning up and we're throwing more logs in the fire.
All of the things you've mentioned have occurred throughout eath's history. Like I said, nothing different is occuring now that hasn't occurred before, even the acidification of the oceans.

Co2 is at very high levels and what has that caused in warming????? Nothing. Warming stopped 17 years ago. If a person says the world will end this Friday the Saturday morning he is considered a nut. Al Gore said years ago there would be no ice in the Arctic yet he is still taken seriously. If every bit of ice in the Arctic melted how much would the ocean level rise???? Not an inch! The amount of water or H2O is fixed and doesn't change . If you have a glass full of water and ice does it overflow the glass when it melts???

I am amazed that the government that after 3 years and millions of dollars can't put up a web site for Obama care yet they think they can control the climate :) The earth has been both much warmer and much colder and man didn't cause it then or now. If it snows it is proof of global warming if it rains it is proof of global warming. They now have to call it climate change because it was to embarrassing that the natural warming cycle stopped 17 years ago. What is the proper temperature for earth????? Mars has had warming. Did man cause it or do you think it could be the sun???

I've seen this before and didn't believe it but I guess its true. I thought the ice at the Arctic went to the ocean floor then was piled above the ocean.

I think that average global temperatures and sea levels are rising but I would agree that science can't predict what will happen.
