Hot button: GOP candidates knock global warming

So you admit it is a blog and not a "study at this point". And "no" I wasn't refering to that blog as liberalSo you use one half of an article as a source and then try to dispute the other half. That would be the definition of cherry picking.  (Aug 21, 2010 | post #23)

Do you ever read what you link too? Or do you just find them on the liberal blogs. First, this is not a report but a blog. You do know what that is, correct? It offers commentary and yes they are from ecnomists in this case but still not a "report from the fed". That being said it does not say what you think it does. You should read the entire thing. And I quote "What's going on here? I'd argue the problem is that hourly wages or earnings are an inadequate measure of labor compensation, primarily because they exclude nonwage forms of compensation -- health care benefits, employers' share of social security contributions, and the like. These forms of compensation are an increasingly important part of what workers receive from employers in exchange for the sweat of their brows. Here's the record on total real compensation (in the nonfarm business sector):" And then look at the third graph down. Along with what this blogger states many employers also have a bonus system or "pay for company performance" of some type which also does not get included in normal wages. Most of us do not work for a hourly wage any more.  (Aug 20, 2010 | post #20)

Oh, Norfie! This is what happens when you immerse yourself in liberal propoganda. Your link doesn't work but, come on, using a liberal blog as a source? I guess it should be expected from you. How about you use something called the US Census Bureau? Here is a report from 2005. See page 11. Real income did continue to rise past this and dropped in the last couple of years. http://www.census. gov/prod/2006pubs/ p60-231.pdf  (Aug 20, 2010 | post #17)

No it hasn't. It has fallen in the last couple of years. There has been no steady decline since 1975.  (Aug 19, 2010 | post #14)

I guess even linking to the NOAA dosn't convince Lessy. Being a borderline intelectual must make him an expert on everything.  (Jul 21, 2010 | post #15)

More proof that major droughts have happened in the past and are predicted in the future with or without AGW. http://www.publica ffairs.noaa.gov/st ories/sir40.html "Even in the absence of significant greenhouse warming, however, future droughts may be much more severe and last much longer than what we have experienced this century," Woodhouse said.  (Jul 21, 2010 | post #11)

Things like this are nothing new. It has happened throughout the history of Earth. The Great Drought was resposible for the decline of the Anasazi people in North America in the 13th century. Must have been caused by all thier SUVs. ______________ http://www.britann ica.com/EBchecked/ topic/243212/Great -Drought climatic interval of the Holocene Epoch that affected much of what is now the western United States and had a profound influence upon the plants, animals, and prehistoric Native American cultures of the region. The Holocene began about 11,700 years ago and continues to the present. The region affected by the Great Drought encompassed the area that extended from what is now Oregon to southern California and east to what is now eastern Texas; dendrochronology, or tree-ring studies, indicate that it began in ad 1276 and continued through 1299  (Jul 21, 2010 | post #9)

Agreeing with the idea that the world is burning up requires no qualifications. Disagreeing does. Earthling, haven't you learned anything?  (Jul 21, 2010 | post #9)
