When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

• EXTINCT: Golden toad (Bufo periglenes). Along with the Monteverde harlequin frog (Atelopus varius), also of Central America, the golden toad is among the very small number of species whose recent extinction has been attributed with medium confidence to climate change, according to Scholes and Pörtner. Last seen in 1989, the golden frog lived in mountaintop cloud forests that have disappeared due to drought and other climatic changes. Other confounding factors are involved, such as the deadly chytrid fungus, which has killed off many amphibians worldwide.(See: "Photos: Ten Most Wanted 'Extinct' Amphibians.")

^^^This proves the pseudoscience, animals have been hunted to extinction before, that's not AGW. These Golden toads are rare because their coloration makes them valuable. If you can't find them in Central America, try eBay. They were hunted to extinction by man, not killed by catastrophic man made climate change.

While warmists routinely cite "funding sources" as a favorite debunking tool against skeptics, when you're faced with the same argument it becomes a non-issue?
It's so much fun to turn warmists own standards back on them.
Well lets take Fred Singer, a favourite with "true lies" who gets his pay checks from the Heartland institute sponsored by the Koch bros & Exxon. This guy might have degrees but he sold his soul for money, I mean he even worked for Phillip Morris in the early 90's trying to debunk the dangers of tobacco smoke. So sure we would all take notice of what he says as being the "scientific truth"

As it stands there is not ONE thing, not ONE post that is other than a personal opinion. There is no science with your lot, just parroting BS from right wing media. How you feel no shame is beyond me, it's like trying to convince us black is white.

U.S. billionaire to pour $100 million into climate change fight
BY VALERIE VOLCOVICI
WASHINGTON Thu Feb 20, 2014 3:10pm EST

Billionaire Tom Steyer on Wednesday night hosted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and six other Democratic lawmakers for a fundraiser at his San Francisco home and is planning an ad campaign for candidates who support tough action on climate change.

Steyer, founder of the hedge fund Farallon Capital, plans to spend $50 million of his own money and raise another $50 million from other donors for the November midterm elections.

His aim is to serve as a political counterweight to the conservative billionaire Koch brothers, who have already spent $30 million so far this year on attack ads targeting vulnerable Democratic senators who have supported the healthcare reform law popularly known as Obamacare.

Steyer hosted Reid and some of Congress' most active climate change advocates: Senators Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Ben Cardin of Maryland, Patrick Leahy of Vermont, Tom Udall of New Mexico, and Representative Gary Peters of Michigan, according to a source who attended the dinner and who spoke on condition of anonymity....

Just recently the US Senate held an all nigher global warming snore-athon. Even though the Senalte holds a majority of Democrats and can pass whatever legislation it wants, the snooze-fest didn't recommend any legislation but got a lot of air time foisting global warming crisis scare-them-all scenarios.

You don't suppose they wanted some of that cash, do your?

Troll- ignored.
No longer will the vapid "oil company funded" science argument be valid.

This is the first big step in what's been a long, and tedious process of getting warmists to act like adults. I'm curios to see how the other warmists respond.... will they grow out of their puerile "evil fossil fuel" company knee-jerk reactionary whining, or will they accept your adult argument?

I believe I've achieved a milestone here, so I'm just going to enjoy it for a bit.

Then if this is valid, we can ignore all that BS about grant chasers and warmers who fly in jet planes and own yachts. When 95% of the world's opinion is against you in terms of science do you honestly expect the 5% to dominate opinion. Then we could include college educated as 99% against you. The 1%'ers would only account for the likes of Beck & Hannity who are reformed alcoholics, claiming to have found God who guides them on the righteous path much like the crusaders and Islamic extremists.Yet totally ignore something they can see and feel everyday to place their faith in the unseen & unproven. There is nothing Adult about that, its mythical science more suited for bedtime stories or cave walls.

Your posts are so full of wandering flotsam that attempting to create a coherent reply would take volumes of which you'd read the first sentence or so.

That said, on your first comment...

It's the warmists that are ever so quick to find associations to funding to "evil oil companies" as a means to debunk opponent's research, and hold their fave scientists above reproach because... uhh... err... well they are, and that's all there is to it!

Just the same I can't imagine how any recipient of pubic monies could complain about including an addendum to their papers to cite their funding sources and a spending summary, Would that not be a prudent decision?

However, you're mixing up your whines. It's the celeb promoters of global warming that are being held accountable for their non-adherence to the "science" they claim proves a "crisis".

Onto flotsam number two...

First, the whole "consensus" argument is bogus, put still a popular meme of the warmists. It's just an attempt to debunk with the logical fallacy of group-think appeal to authority.

No matter how many follow the "consensus", if a theory is wrong, it's wrong. Trumpeting "settled" science is the antithesis of the scientific method.

Who said anything about dominating opinion? In 'real' science, all research is considered. Warmists, however, preclude skeptics outright and dismiss them with a whole list of pejoratives as if that in itself is argument enough.

And now flotsam number 3...

Wow... you've got issues. Beck and Hannity alcoholics? That's relevant to what exactly?

Ahh... the 99-percentes envy based whining.

I'd say you've found global warming as a means to cobble your myriad of hate themes into a single "cause".

Get over it... some folks have more. Some have less. No amount of government intervention will change that.
