The Day Global Warming Stood Still

The Day Global Warming Stood Still

There are 170 comments on the news.yahoo.com story from Nov 21, 2009, titled The Day Global Warming Stood Still . In it, news.yahoo.com reports that:

As scientists confirm the earth has not warmed at all in the past decade, others wonder how this could be and what it means for Copenhagen.

It will be a very cold winter of discontent for the warm-mongers. The climate show-and-tell in Copenhagen next month will be nothing more than a meaningless carbon-emitting jaunt, unable to decide just whom to blame or how to divvy up the profitable spoils of climate change hysteria.

The collapse of the talks coupled with the decision by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to put off the Kerry-Boxer cap-and-trade bill, the Senate's version of Waxman-Markey, until the spring thaw has led Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, the leading Republican on the Environment and Public Works Committee, to declare victory over Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and the triumph of observable fact over junk science.

Well that's your option. You see I reject as well as REFUSE to acknowledge any..."citizens of the world". I would rather see a world at WAR than a world under one Government. If you are NOT an American,then I could NEVER ask that you be able to understand how being an AMERICAN feels but know this. As long as there are AMERICANS,there will NEVER be "One World Government nor a New World Order. If it were up to MOST Americans The United States would get the HELL OUT of the UN and the UN would be thrown the HELL OUT of the United States. America FIRST and AMERICA ALWAYS!!! Like I said,if you are NOT an AMERICAN then I would NEVER expect you to understand this.
You completely misunderstood what I was trying to express.
I believe we should all accept that we are, "citizens of the world" by nature of the fact that we are, but I agree with you, I don't believe in world government or new world order and I'm not too impressed with the UN either.

A world at war?
I witnessed a part of WWII and wouldn't wish another on anyone!

No, I'm not American, I'm English, which means I was VERY lucky, the British Empire still existed when I was a lad, although not for much longer after that.
I know only too well from first hand experience how MOST Americans, "feel" about their flag and the god fearing American way of life, but at the end of the day we're all human beings, none of us are anything exceptional.
If you believe in a god, you must also believe that all humans are equal, or do you think that America has its own private god?

I think the three of us are on the same page, but maybe a bit got lost in the semantics.
I am sure you are a proud Brit, as I am an American.
Sadly, however, both countries are going far astray.
I sometimes think the UK is falling faster then the US but
both seem to be in a socialist death spiral.
It is one reason that I am happy that I do not have to suffer the Obamination of the USA.

RUSH IS RIGHT, I'm not proud of an accident of birth or proud of being English, I had no choice in the matter, that's just the way the dice fell.
As for growing to learn to feel pride in my country of birth, as a youngster I probably did, but as time passed I began to realise that there is little to be proud of.
England is a nice place in many ways, but the weather there never suited my clothes, that's why I moved south.

The UK has been dying slowly since WWII.

I would tend to agree. The mix of different countries and political systems and the need for 'cooperation' rather than conflict is one key to world stability. Indeed, the major obstacle to better realtions todays was the U.S. attempt to become 'the ruling government' by military means, starting with the Middle East and it's oil. This has seriously backfired and illustrates that NO country should consider themselves 'world police', despite Obamas veiled references to the U.S. claim to that very designation at the nobel awards ceremony.

Britain managed to do that for quite a long time and some countries still have a constant reminder.
As recently as 1965, this was your flag:

I must say that the modern Canadian flag is much prettier.

One of the biggest problems that many modern humans suffer from is flag waving, jingoistic patriotism.
When/if/probably never, mankind realises that we're all simple human beings, all here due to a sheer accident of birth in any given area of planet Earth, maybe, just maybe we'd all get along better and learn to live together.
You and I could just have easily been born into poverty in a far flung village in rural Africa, India or China, instead we both got lucky, but it's apparent that only one of us realises that and is thankful for his good fortune.
Excellent post!!!!

I'm Catholic so yes,I believe in God. I also think that people should have a God,maybe not mine or yours but a God none the less. I as an American love people but know this. I am quoting one of my favorite Americans Benjamin Franklin..."Millions for CHARITY,not one penny for TRIBUTE"!! One of my biggest problems is with my country not enforcing our already lax immigration laws. Hell,My family(Oglesby) came from the 5 Glenns of Angus Scotland and have been in Georgia for over 246 yrs..let ME try and show up in the UK illegally and see what I get lol!! It won't be a ticker tape parade or... a cup o "Earl Grey" either will it lol? You have Americans like that god-d#mned Al Gore. There are children starving the world over yet look what he does,he rails on about a fake scam "Global Warming". I wasn't born until 1971 so I barely remember Vietnam. What I really meant by that statement about a "world at war" was Americans are very spiteful about OUR country. If WE can't have it,we'll leave it in ashes for those who wish to take it.

I know hundreds of Catholics, but few of them are religious and most of them doubt the existence of a god, but I have nothing against anyone who believes.

The nearest one I get to having is Nature, she is undemanding of me and I have great respect for her.

That's a major problem in Europe too.

Probably not, but neither would I, in fact I have to get a special EU insurance ticket that entitles me to health cover in my own country.

Don't you think it's a good job the original inhabitants didn't think the same when the Founding Fathers arrived?

It's not our governments fault, everyone knows politicians are prostitutes. It's the scientists, they have a responsibility to find the truth, and they've fallen short.
