    The scientific basis for global warming/ climate change

    To understand the theory of global warming we first must start with Maslow's hierarchy of needs. As we apply this theory to global warming we see that the needs that apply to the poor and middle class don't apply to the rich. They do not worry about paying for gas or the cost of college or even the cost of a private jet. They worry about being deprived of the right to take a trip and watch polar bears. Not that they would ever make such a trip. But just the thought that they could be deprived of such by the grovelling lower classes use of energy is more than they can take. This makes the godless liberal rich nervous. Since there is no God watching over the universe it is incumbent on them to fill that role. All deities hate heresy. Draconian measures are justified to crush heresy and instill order in a chaotic universe. Shrill claims of imminent disaster and shrill attacks on opponents follow. Cries of "Climate change denier" and "The Southern United States will become uninhabitable" echo across the media. This is where we are today.

    • Are you crazy?
      KNow plenty of christian conservatives, independents and liberals.

      Not the pretend christian kind either. You know, the mega church, god favors the wealthy variety.

      Do you know anything about big oil and republican efforts to silence anyone who proposes global warming ideas? No you don't.

      Stay ignorant and self satisfied.

    • It will be hilarious if Obama even mentions global warming during the Jan 28 state of the Union message. Global warming is more discredited than the Y2000 computer meltdown or the 2012 Mayan end of the world predictions.

      By the way, does anyone know where Al Gore is hiding these days,.

      • Al Bore is living in a mansion he bought outside San Diego after selling his tv network to fossil fuel producers in the middle east. He has been laying low after a masseuse in a well known San Francisco hotel accused him of sexual advances. A left wing climatologist convinced him that co2 gas levels were a reliable metric to predict long term climate trends. This has been shown to be false by scientists all over the world, including Russia and Germany. In other words, his Nobel Prize was based on speculation, not science or facts. The joke around the beltway for years was that if you had to spend some time with Bill, Hillary, Al, and Tipper, and you found out that you had to do it again, the only one you'd be looking forward to seeing again would be Tipper!

    • Climate Change is a religion; it's not science.

    • I know one thing for sure, if you don't agree with them - watch out, the name calling will be comical!
