King failed to receive a science or mathematics degree. Wonder if he had poor grades in science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in his hi skule DEE-plooomaa.

He defended organizers of animal fights, representing his state.

Generally in other countries, internment camps, etc. But you don't look or care.

It is more the 'change curve' as expounded by Elisabeth Kubler Ross. First comes denial. Then anger (they are still in the anger phase). After that is exploring and acceptance. Some will never move on but most of the intelligent denialists have dropped out and only a few are still consumed by anger that the world isn't the way they want it.

You may have noticed that the ones that are left are more vitriolic but have less cockeyed reasoning or even bad science in their posts. The main reasoning these days is to try to tear down science as a credible tool.

Yes, I haven't had to add anymore of their mathematics misdirections to the piled errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, 73 million TIMES, 500 million TIMES, 2.5+ trillion TIMES, & finally one thousand thousand thousand thousand thousand TIMES. I'm waitin'.

The arrogance is astounding. More and more alarmists, major organizations and international scientific bodies are modifying their assertions and computer models to accommodate actual data and your projections reverse even that reality.

To update those interested in the actual truth about Eschenbach lying, or not... over a year after the worthless personal attack on him for daring to question the Darwin data, this peer review seems to confirm he was correct afterall:
https://diggingintheclay.wordpress.com/2011/0...

Then, to show what a remarkably forgiving and gracious man Eschenbach is, here is his own words discussing scientific method and the personalization of issues by those in retreat:
http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/02/28/its-not...

Remember, the initial personal attack on Eschenbach was 12/09, the peer reviewed support of his assertions a year and two months later. Subsequently, the exposures of dishonesty and political pressures have redundantly shown Eschenbach and others concerned about data manipulation correct.

Talk to yourself about lying.

You lied big time in this post. All of it is unadulterated misinformation.

At least, you didn't say all of science was predicting an ice age, like most toxic topix AGW deniers have said. Even in the 70's, when AGW science wasn't as positive, 44 Science Paper were published in Science Journals about global warming. During the same period, only 7 papers were written about global cooling.

This "at least" tone is patronizing and inappropriate. However, you children don't know much about the seventies. There was a very major multi-agency, CIA driven, Carter administration study done called Global 2000, a two tome publication. The overviews and arranged data sets predicted global cities under water, great desertification, societal breakdown and widespread starvation by the year 2000. That was the driving study. The reverse of desertification has taken place; there is no coastal flooding, food supplies and outreach to the third world has been improved, etc. The only thing holding the 1/3 of the world's population back in economic development now is the Left's extreme fear mongering about climate.

That's the same fear mongering, the same data manipulation, the same Leftist driven mania and pollution of science we've seen in the current maniacal claims. Meanwhile, the coldest July history and more dense ice sheets everywhere.

Here is how Obama and his Communists are practicing their racism and will keep 1/3 of the world's population in darkness and cooking with buffalo chips...

If you want to see someone delusional look in the mirror.

You seem to have a scientific background. I am amazed that you can look at the data presented at:

http://www.climate.gov/news-features/understa...

and come to the conclusion that global warming is not a scientific fact. The rate of increase in Global Warming is theoretical and subject to errors, but the warming that has occurred to date is a scientific fact.

Perhaps you feel that the NOAA is part of a vast conspiracy.

Good to see there are some politicians not cowed by the anthropoglobalclimategenicwarm ingchange mafia. He knows that the idiots who believe in the mantra will be flailing at him with their faux science. Followed right along by the media chickens all clucking about the so-called "concensus". Yeah. Fortunately it looks like the extinction that's going is the extinction of the faux science which is as the congressman says, "a religion". One replete with sacrament, inquisition, and redemption for those who accept the pseudo-science.

I've been under the impression that AGW stands for ANTHROPOGENIC Global Warming.

There's been global warming and global cooling. The extreme, irrational rhetoric used by the AGW promoters is absolutely the most arrogant bullshit perpetrated ever. Plus, it's repeatedly shown to be wrong (as with the North Pole lake stupidity.) Why are you fearful of addressing that irrationality and Gore's irrationality and previous Global 2000 incorrectness, ad infinitum?)

The small and gradual warming is insignificant, ultimately beneficial if choosing to be a non fear monger. To change national and international economic policies based on it is not only insane, but overtly harmful to 1/3 of the world's population. When moonbats teach children to be emotional twits incapable of sound reason, nor even perceiving their own environments pragmatically, they not only damage children, but damage respect for science. I'd call such arrogance dope inspired and devolutionary.

If global warming can take a seventeen year hiatus (so far), something is wrong with AGW thinking and their data sets are useless, repeatedly shown to be linked more to grants offered by politicians with agendas (such as depriving 1/3 of the world's population of economic development) and the greed of educated morons, who should be fry cooks. Such are intricate psychologies designed to convince White people their complete historical existence has been flawed. If you want to call that conspiracy, so be it. If you want to call focusing on so-called green energy (which requires constant redundant backups of the same volume of conventional energy sources as if there was no green energy) a conspiracy designed to deprive 1/3 of the world's population of economic vitality, so be it.

Contrarily, I call all that the suicidal stupidity of Leftist arrogance and inclination to tyranny on societal and personal levels. You're all a bunch of liars, cheats and thieves. Go ahead now... tell us the projection of a "North Pole Lake" falsehood is not delusional, but I am.
