The recent snows, I was informed the other day, prove once and for all global warming is a hoax, perpetrated by an international conspiracy of left-wing scientists who want to destroy the American way of life.

So let me get this straight. You're upset because the global warming hoax is being reported as balanced? Both sides are told(which I think is a joke). Isn't that journalism 101? And where exactly was the coverage on climategate? You'd think that would be daily news, front page even. World wide fraud...sounds like news to me. If not for the internet and ,the bane of MSM, Fox News people would not have heard about it. In fact the only thing heard on MSM was that the whisleblower obtained the info illegally. If you want an honest discussion about global warming(or climate change) that's one thing. I believe my side will show its a hoax everytime. But that's not what you want. You want it to be called fact. That's not how science works.

Geez Mark. You're not a lib right? LOL
It's a hoax man. Cripes, if AG will give up his private jet and mansion, he'd be more believable.
How about you do an expose on his involvment with the companies making billions off of this scheme?
Don't judge me because I drive an SUV, thta's so pase. Do you walk to work or ride a bike?

Glaciers at both poles are melting quickly, the average temperatures around the globe are rising, the sea level is encroaching on coasts/cities throughout the world.
If that is not global warming, what is it?
How much man adds to climate change is not known exactly, but all those greenhouse gases/pollution surely are not helping.
We ignore it at much higher future cost.

If you study the past, you will find that these things happen in cycles. Nothing new!!!!!!!!!!

Stop being foolish-these thigns occured before man was on the planet-ever heard of the ice ages? Did man cause that?

It's all crap, but stop using fossil fuels and set the example, hypocrite.

If the scientists who study endlessly don't know the answers to our planet's climate, how do rednecks who can barely write gain such authority on the subject? The recent snow storm were primarily a result of moisture from the Gulf, every weather guy could show that. Their were no record low temperatures set in the region, although January was a record high temp month. The snow storms are poor quality fodder to disprove climate change because of the incredibly high moisture that we can all prove by simply digging away for hours with our shovels. It was weather, nothing more or less, it was not climate and it was not global.

My response to the possibility (no matter how small or great), is to do the parts that save me $$$ anyway, because any fool with half a grain of common sense wants to save money....So I use low wattage light bulbs (LED) that pretty much last forever, I drive cars that get great gas mileage (gas is $3 a gallon), I don't like financing terrorism by buying lots of middle east or Venezuelan gas anyway. I participate in recycling when it saves me money...etc. In the end, I am just a money hugger, instead of a tree hugger or fear hugger. I don't care if it is nature or man made, saving money rules, so I am not stupid enough to drive a Ford F250 to church, or burn a bunch of 60-15climate 0 watt bulbs that need to be replaced every year. Save your money, and don't bother trying be a scientists or another wackjob conspiracy theorist.

Seriously.

Reading is fundamental, try again mr swifty, I wrote LED as in, light emitting diode. There is no mercury in LED, please, learn to read. By thee way Tesla invented the fluorescent many decades ago, they can be made and handled safely as the last 90 years have shown...that article has more to do with China than anything else, after you learn to read, you will find even childrens clothing and dogfood are not safe from China...but that is another lesson.

The global warming hoax and Obama lies caused hundreds of billions damage to US economy as all out war was called by the liberal Democratic Party liars and their teacher Union that brainwashed our kids at pubic schools against US unlimited drilling oil and natural gas in America and sending trillions of dollars to nukes seeking Islamic terrorists regimes like Iran for their oil
The efforts of Obama to create 'green jobs' failed and caused tens of billions of dollars in failed investments in solar panels and wind turbines that will provide electrical energy tat cost three times the price of coal energy and will need backup of coal energy when they do not provide energy.
Professor Phil Jones of the Eat Anglia University admitted that he lost his papers that had temperature and CO2 concentration measurements and he claimed that there was no global warming since 1995.
Phil Jones who concocted the global warming hoax behind closed doors admitted that warming was caused during the recent centuries when there was no man made emissions.
There is not scientific book in your library of book store that show the evidence to global warming by showing facts about temperature measurements and CO2 concentration in the recent century.
The lack of any scientific reference of well recognized American professors in famous and recognized US universities prove that global warming hoax is a liberal Democratic Party lie to the American people and the world that was concocted by the Bolshevik anarchist George Soros and Al Gore and was spread by the liberal media ad the Jewish Elites of the NY Times, ABC, NBC and CBS for socialistic change in America.

I apologize for skimmimg past 'LED' in your post.

However, broken fluorescent bulbs do pose a health risk whether they were made in China or Chinatown in America.

what's Mr Swifty???

If you suddenly worry about breaking fluorescent light bulbs after having them in nearly every school and public buildings for many decades, well, you might as well go "global warmie" , get your fillings removed and anti cell tower too. Like all light bulbs and glass objects, just try not to break them. But as I stated, I use LED for long term savings and no worries about breakage. The article was about dangers of production in China primarily, I'll skip that gig.

sorry, but "just try not to break them" is an absurd post.

We're not talking about the long tubes in ceiling lights, they're lamp bulbs.

My kids have knocked over lamps and broken bulbs. I've accidentally dropped them as has everyone else. Hit the ones in the garage with a ladder and broken them off at the base.

Most people are completely unaware they should clear out of the house for 15 minutes if that happens with one of these new bulbs.

But, I know, you're an LED guy. And the article was primarily about mercury poisoning in China so US consumers shouldn't care that there are mercury risks they face as well. Because the article was primarily about China. Yeah, I get it.

DUDE! if it's not right for you, then don't buy em!! Same with guns, drugs, beer...whatever! Do you and your family get in cars? Guess what kills more, bad driving, or mercury? We don't need the government to add another layer to save us from ourselves. Just try to lead a rational life.

Just buy the damn LED lights, they will save you $$$, it does not sound like you and your kids can handle the responsibility and care of glass objects anyway. If you want to lobby for greater safety in Chinese manufacturing then go ahead, it's a good cause, but you are preaching to the wrong person about that topic. It's just silly late for people to suddenly get up in arms about fluorescent bulbs and mercury threats. People have been breaking those big bulbs for years (in your kids schools!)without reports of mercury poisoning, before the new digital thermometers did you evacuate the neighborhood when you dropped the glass thermometer? Seriously, don't go alarmist in one area and leave the rest of the "possible threats" to fend for themselves.:-)

Why is it so hard to tell Americans how to save a buck safely?

Mr. Charisse has obviously been living in a cave. Why else would he choose to ignore the fact that the so called "scientists" have been scamming us with fraudulent data and the intimidation of other scientists that disagree with global warming nonsense.
