I never give money to Mr Gore. Your post sucks!
Where is your proof? I have read your garbage and none of them proves or shows that man is causing climate change or that global warming is the direct result of man. You liar.

<quoted text>Hey coalish person, you need to pick up science and mathematics to understand this subject.
Average numbers globally mean big numbers regionally, right?
You need to come out of your bunker after reading that third grade science book, the weather is always changing, climate patterns change, without and before man ever burned coal or fossil fuels. If the earth is that sensitive, why didn't the climate change after WW2?

Climate change is having significant financial, ecological and human health impacts across the US, according to a new report.

The third National Climate Assessment, released by the White House, says the number and strength of extreme weather events have increased over the past 50 years.

Infrastructure is being damaged by sea level rise, downpours and extreme heat.

The report says these impacts are likely to worsen in the coming decades.

Coming hot on the heels of the trio of reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the assessment re-iterates the finding that climate change is real, and "driven primarily by human activity".

More doom and gloom to control the sheep from the White House. Pandering politicians promising better weather....LOL.....Climate change is natural and cyclical, and those demanding action have political agendas to transfer wealth from industrialized nations to the third world, where they can profit from it. No thanks, chicken little - I'm not buying into it. Go sell your nonsense to the bigfoot enthusiasts or something.

Name calling suits you when you have no science to offer to the contrary.

Go away, smoking fire.

Even if burning coal is causing or contributing to climate change, it is absolute insanity for the U.S. to cripple our economy and destroy ourselves as a superpower by restricting the use of coal - the one energy source in which we are and will for a long time remain self sufficient - while China, India, and a host of Third World nations go full speed ahead with coal fueled development. With them doing that, the climate change, if it is real, will happen anyway. Better for the U.S.A. to continue using our coal and prepare to adapt to the inevitable consequences of others' use of coal, which we will be better capable of doing than China or the Third World.

Yes Chicken Little, name calling suits me well when you post garbage and can only back it up with political tidbits from the White House and not science. over 31,000 scientists signing the petition stating "There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide will, in the forseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere ...". What I want to stop is GLOBAL WHINING!

I guess nothing is official until the great obama says it's true. LOL. Why don't you explain how did we have all that horrible weather throughout history without coal burning? Why did we have so many climate changes throughout time? You weak minded fool, the climate is not that fragile that it reacts to you driving your SUV. We have had nuclear explosions and no climate change. STOP GLOBAL WHINING!

“Corn producers in Iowa, oyster growers in Washington state and maple syrup producers in Vermont are all observing climate-related changes that are outside of recent experience,” the NCA stated in its report.“So, too, are coastal planners in Florida, water managers in the arid Southwest, city dwellers from Phoenix to New York and native peoples on tribal lands from Louisiana to Alaska.”

Again REPEAT:

Even if those phenomenon are happening, and if they are related to climate change, and if that change is human influenced by putting CO2 into the atmosphere from burning coal, IT DOES NOT MATTER IF THE USA CRIPPLES ITSELF BY STOPPING OR RESTRICTING COAL! It will happen anyway because China, India, and the Third World will not stop using coal. They will use more. All restricting coal in the USA will do is cripple our economy.

If is far better policy of us to simply set the situation take its course. The Free Market will then find a solution that will allow us to adapt. Their socialistic economies will be unable to do so.

Suggest you read an article:

"The Coming Anarchy" by Robert D. Kaplan in the Feb. 1994 issue of THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY, pp. 44-76.

Hidden and woven into Kaplan's article is the great truth that climate change may well be the hope of advanced Western Civilization. It can and will adapt. The uncivilized world will not.

While climate change is a global issue, impacts vary widely

“The good news is that large countries such as Nigeria and the tropical forests of the Congo region are likely to be much less affected,” Müller stresses. While climate change certainly is a global challenge, as greenhouses-gases from the use of fossil fuels disturb ecosystems worldwide, the impacts vary widely over space and time. Up to now, most studies address singular aspects of climate change impacts only, even though multiple stresses amplify the vulnerability. Hence the importance of identifying hotspots – and a composite impact measure that explicitly addresses the issue of uncertainty.

“It’s all about risks,” says Hermann Lotze-Campen, co-chair of PIK’s research domain Climate Impacts and Vulnerability.“We have to live with uncertainties: we don’t have perfect data about future impacts of climate change, but computer simulations can help to understand likelihoods and possible impacts. Climate change clearly threatens people’s livelihoods and thus cannot be ignored. Based on likelihoods and values at stake, we have to make decisions now – as we always do when we’re building a dike or for instance pass regulations on flight safety.”

Yep. Nigeria. That Third World refuge for vicious savages is a real success story. Nigeria is headed for breakup and a return to pre-colonial savagery. No matter what happens to the climate, that's not going to change.

Do you actually think that we are the first humans to ever go through weather patterns changing? I sure hope we don't have another winter that cold. Our Oceans are rising how much over the next 10000 years? Don't you think a lot of climate scientist need to keep their job?

Well there you go, you finally got to it, "computer simulations". In other words a computer generated guess based completely on the bogus and falsified data being imputed.
On to the document signed by over 31,000 scientists stating that any change in climate patterns has nothing to do with human activity, these are real scientists, the vast majority of whom are climatologists. Your "consensus" signers on the other hand consisted of any idiot with a 4 year degree that knew how to sign their name.

Consensus is not science. Science has to be proven whereas consensus is merely opinion.
