There's something severely wrong with these so called 'scientits' who can't envision progress in the future.
The climate change sham is worsening daily, as more 'scientits' seek bandwagon funding.

By 2300 CE Islam will have locked the entire planet firmly in the 7th Century. This will not matter. It will be considered the "Will of Allah".

What a sad joke. A few hundred (or even thousand) christo-fascists versus 1.5+ BILLION Muslims? That's nearly 1/4th the population of Earth!

Get outta town, Northie!

Actually, that wouldnt be so bad. It could harbor new endangered life forms, like the amphibians and pygmey allosaurs in the dinosaur age. It would be remarkable to see an old world come back like that.

SPIEGEL: Do you still believe in an international climate pact?

Steiner: The world will come to the conclusion that there is no alternative to this pact. It would make it possible to cut back on the $600 billion in subsidies per year that go to fossil energy sources and to put a price on carbon that will help green technologies to achieve a breakthrough. http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1...

Umm, it's in the article. Did you vote for Obama? Most people who did expect others to tell them stuff like that rather than find it on their own.

I really don't care when because I already know when. Never - that's when.

Just some BS so the whacked out liberal econuts can collect more money, even faster until the time they specified is up and nothing happens, that's when of course they'll claim that "we're making big strides in saving the planet, but there's still alot more to do so keep giving us your money" because the reality is we have no control over the climate.

Globull warming is nothing but an excuse to funnel money and control the people ad infinitum.

Prove me wrong then.

Once you whack jobs start funneling taxpayer money to "green energy" how much is it going to take to "save the planet", where will it end?

The econuts have essentially created the greatest money making scam in history and the majority of people have fallen for it because their either too ignorant of the world around them, too stupid to think for themselves and believe everything that's told to them, or are foolish enough to think that their "government" wouldn't perpetrate such a scheme.

Look how nutters like you had everyone believing Y2K was real and all the bad stuff that was said to happen. Look at the software companies that made tons of money by selling a "fix" for the "Y2K bug" which never existed.

The econuts are trying to set up a permanent influx of money that could last indefinitely because in the end, when nothing happens, they'll still have "scientists", who will say pretty much anything if you dangle enough grant money under their noses, claiming that we're all doomed if we don't spend a ton of money to buy their "solution".

Don't be so gullible.

Hey Nitrox why don't ya mention Global Warming like you believe in it, in front of me, so I can let the audience watch me use your face for a dog dropping pickup-pan. I'll put your head on a stick and prop your mouth open.

Now tell me you believe in the magic downward-emitting photons which "50-50" emit "up and down" no matter how far from the surface of the curved body of earth

Who, you are extremely ignorant for even suggestin that the earth is cooling. I would like to see evidence of this anomaly, i however will state my sources;
http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.ph...
If you do not choose to read the article here are a few quotes,
"Except for a leveling off between the 1940s and 1970s, Earth?s surface temperatures have increased since 1880. The last decade has brought temperatures to the highest levels ever recorded, and the last year of the decade (2009) was tied for the second warmest year in the modern record, a new NASA analysis of global surface temperature shows. The analysis, conducted by the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City, is based on temperatures recorded at weather stations around the world and satellite data over the oceans" "Although 2008 was the coolest year of the decade, due to strong cooling of the tropical Pacific Ocean, 2009 saw a return to near-record global temperatures"

Data in this article also shows the correlation between human activity and rising temperatures
http://www.ipcc.ch/publications_and_data/ar4/...

Some scientific conclusions or theories have been so thoroughly examined and tested, and supported by so many independent observations and results, that their likelihood of subsequently being found to be wrong is vanishingly small. Such conclusions and theories are then regarded as settled facts. This is the case for the conclusions that the Earth system is warming and that much of this warming is very likely due to human activities.
