Climate change believers are like Rob Ford

You doomers didn't even know what the consensus was that you were agreeing on because science had NEVER said or agreed it WILL be a crisis and have NEVER said it was “inevitable” or “eventual” or anything beyond just "could be" a crisis for 30 years!

So what gives YOU the right say it WILL fear monger?

Self-interest and time perception may be the most significant obstacles to climate change action, according to a new study. Researchers at New York University (NYU) have determined that the long-term goals of preventive action are not sufficient incentives for nations who fail to cooperate in the face of global warming. The findings suggest that emphasizing the short-term gains may be the only way to spur a concerted effort against the climate shift that threatens to unravel infrastructures and economic systems worldwide.

nobody is blocking new information. the problem with the warmist agenda is that the old and current news doesn't support the hoax. any news is good news......from an optimists point of view.

would another katrina make the warmists happy? i think it would. BUT....it wouldn't prove a damned thing....except that warmists are opportunistic sensationalist fools.

warmists have to CONVINCE the planet to believe they are right about man made global warming.....because they don't have the evidence and facts to back up their position.

You remaining climate blame believers are like Rob Ford because you doomers didn't even know what the consensus was that you were agreeing on.

The consensus that you small minded and cowardly climate blame believers use to condemn my children with is science's "consensus" of; "Climate change is real and is happening and could lead to unstoppable warming."

How is that: "Climate change is now an inevitable and unavoidable climate crisis." Not one single IPCC warning has ever said anything more than "could be".
Prove me wrong but science has NEVER agreed any crisis WILL happen yet YOU believers tell my kids they WILL be doomed to a climate crisis?
Nice work girls, even Bush didn't condemn little kids to an exaggerated crisis.

"ratdownthemiddle", "middleofthedownwronggull y" has picked the group of educationless twits it lies down with. Don know wha it ain't prowd of its low down & low eddy-kated brethren & sistars.

BBC:

he UK's Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) has urged countries to take urgent action on climate change, as UN talks enter their second week.

The committee, comprising 14 aid agencies, said Typhoon Haiyan was a glimpse of the future for millions who will be at risk from extreme weather.

It said the meeting in Warsaw should agree to rapidly cut carbon emissions.

But negotiators say such action is unlikely as a global deal is not expected until 2015.

The British agencies argue that extreme weather events such as Typhoon Haiyan follow a growing pattern of threat that points strongly towards climate change.
