Have you ever thought that some of these postings maybe coming from people associated with the current administration, or the EPA, since they have so much time to sit around and watch porn on government computers at taxpayers expense with little or no oversite.
Hmm, or Acorn maybe??

The year 2013 ties with 2003 as the fourth warmest year globally since records began in 1880. The annual global combined land and ocean surface temperature was 1.12░F above the 20th century average of 57.0░F. This marks the 37th consecutive year that the yearly global temperature was above average. Currently, the warmest year on record is 2010, which was 1.19░F above average. 9 of the 10 warmest years in the 134-year period of record have occurred in the 21st century. Only one year during the 20th centuryŚ1998Śwas warmer than 2013.

Unless they stop India and China from building more coal plants, it will be one more way liberals killed jobs in America.
For the second year, an annual Pew Charitable Trusts report shows that China is the world leader in clean energy investment, with $54 billion in investments in renewables in 2013, well above total U.S. investment of $36.7 billion.

The government has the money to spend and they are not going to give grants to people who don't bring back the information that agrees with their position on Global warming. They are cooking the books! NASA used the data to prove warming but they used the data from the wrong month :) What Obama can't do though our congress he will do with wild use of EPA. King Obama don't need no stinking Congress :)

aside from china being the biggest world economy now....they also have a billion more people than the 2nd rate u.s.

but don't let that stop any warmies.....i'm sure there's plenty of room for a few more. sounds like paradise to an alarmist, if you ask me.

<quoted text>If global warming is a provable fact why have they dropped calling it global warming and now call it climate change?????
Because as your punctuation suggests you are deeply stupid.

The effects of climate change are not consistent over the globe. The warming is more concentrated in some areas. And some of the effects are not drought - some are unusual seasonal or geographic storms of varying kinds. The temperature differential between ocean and air can lead to more extreme weather.

So it's climate change to be accurate. The overall trend is warming, of course.

Everyone knows this. And the average global temperature has been increasing over the past two decades. There was a slowdown in the increase for awhile.

Lastly, you confuse next week's weather with climate. This is in keeping with your lack of intelligence, honesty and knowledge.

That is odd since in 2013 the Arctic ice cap increased by about 27%

I just love your personal attacks. It speaks more to your intelligence than mine :) If the climate has been warming why would they stop using the term ??? The Arctic Ice increased by about 27% while Al Gore and other sycophants claimed there would be no ice in the Arctic in 2013. There are wholes in so many of your theories. The results don't match the models :) All these wild claims about the destruction of man kind are not new at all. The population bomb was a very popular book about the 70's . We should all be starving to death as the population has increased. One of the terrible side effects of global warming would be greater food production. What is the right temperature for the world? It has been far warmer and far colder in the past. During the American revolution we were in the little ice age

The Obama administration trotted out a TV weather man who said that global warming would cause more tornadoes. If this were true that heat caused tornadoes the August would be the most active tornado month. Spring is tornado season as cold fronts and war fronts collide

Renewable energy in the United States accounted for 13.2 percent of the domestically produced electricity in 2012.

Hydroelectric power is currently the largest producer of renewable power in the U.S. It produced around 6.2% of the nation's total electricity

U.S. wind power installed capacity now exceeds 60,000 MW and supplies 4% of the nation's electricity

Solar accounts for 1%

My insults do not fully capture the condescension you deserve. You're a prevaricator and none too bright.

I indicated your lies and answered your grasping non question question.

You are mum on the subjects. You move onto more selected and twisted "facts."

It is "climate change" because a major effect will be more extreme weather events. These weather events are not limited to drought.

(Hint: Droughts make food production very difficult. Increases in populations of pests make food production very difficult. Educating you would be impossible. Thanks for the schoolgirl's raft of question marks again, rube.)

[QUOTE who="william shatner's poop plop"]That is odd since in 2013 the Arctic ice cap increased by about 27%[/QUOTE]

Sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liar "william shatner's poop plop" says 27%, while its cohorts said 60% & 50% & then reduced to 30%. Of course, all their numbers are wrong. Only temporarily did Arctic sea ice VOLUME become 15% higher than this decades normal for Arctic sea ice. By the end of 2013, Arctic sea ice VOLUME was only 1% greater & presently is the same as this decades normal. Also presently, 2014 Arctic sea ice VOLUME is 7900 km3 kilometers LESS than the VOLUME for the 1980's.

Sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liar "william shatner's poop plop" is a sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liar.

PA really needs a library..ya know the place they keep books that have facts in them..

But enough about the gray box know it nothing..

Anybody wants to know about the revised global warming which has been revised to climate change revised to climate disruption..it will continue with the ol' trickle down in metaphors as it goes...but that isn't the interesting part...the carbon credit exchange is where the real action is...that is where the truth is.

go look for yourselves..it's as if the dollar has been taken off the gold standard X100

Here is that internal contradiction again: In the same post the claim is the warming is "natural" and yet comes "building more coal plants."
Someone who inadvertently acknowledges coal plants as a factor in any way is admitting it's not natural.
And the pace of the current warming is not eons, as before the industrial revolution, it is not centuries and in some ways even decades. Far, far faster.
But these are the usual anti vaccine, anti Evolution kooks mouthing off here.
It is natural.

It also makes no sense to continue to hamstring American commerce with dopey liberal laws.

They should stop building coal plants in China and India until they do it cleaner.

we wouldn't need to endlessly raise unemployment benefits and the minimum wage if liberals didn't keep killing jobs with taxes like 0failurecrae and not passing the Keystone pipeline.
