Wish the lies would stop. But I guess as long as someone can control something through this lie,(excuse me, I remember rivers on fire and feces floating - smog so thick you never saw the city from a plane). Educate your children and your grandchildren about the huge improvements our generation has made! Plant a tree with them and tell them how it survives,on CO2. If the so called greenies wanted to do something they would be planting trees! They are just collecting$$ for studies and bogus research!
Many of us with a great deal of scientific training consider the global warming hypothesis to be too simplistic and the supporting data to be of poor quality.
The mass media tries to say that if you don't "believe" in global warming you don't believe in Science. That's not true. And in any case science is a method, not a belief.
There is one hard fact that doesn't get much coverage. NASA's satellite atmospheric temperature data shows no global warming in more than 15 years. For over 15 years all the data shows is random temperature fluctuations. You don't hear much about that.

I do realize people following the scientific method understand it is a process which requires intellectual integrity or character.
The issue I have with an assembly of opinion which happens to have college degrees like the union of concern scientists.
At best they have become the naive tools of a Progressive Elite which is bent on replacing what remains of traditional Western Religion; with its focus on the inherent value of each individual/individuality and conservation or stewardship of the environment,with a collective social imperative of their Global Warming messianic claims.
So we have Western Europe literally destroying what remains of their economies with this new religion. Even as they shut down the only source of energy which could 'save' them from their fate which is nuclear power. Close to the social conditions which unleashed the unmatched evil of collectivist fascism and communism upon the world.
Here in America Obama has rewarded his political cronies with a $100 billion in tax payer money. Some went bankrupt but most went to base load energy 'feeder tariffs' arrangements where the full cost is hidden from rate payers by law. This shows the 'environmentalists' are more than willing to trick, deceive and obfuscate the general public for some one has worked this out and a dishonored media has gone along with it.
Further as you know China already emits more 'pollution' than America in a few years it will be more than double. India shares their development agenda and in a few years will exceed us. Nor does their economic development or emissions stop there but continue at a compounding rate of economic growth and productivity.
Of course the largest most expensive, irrational and hard heart policy is corn based ethanol. It increases emissions and just based on the low energy density physics of plants, can never be a base load energy solution. It might be a way to enhance over all process efficiency but it is simply impossible as a energy solution.
One would assume an assembly of intellectual honest concerned scientists would take this on as not only evil policy but completely ineffective and of massive cost, draining resources fro viable alternatives.
But that is not what happens. We all know the science process is not possible under such a glaring failure of intellectual integrity and character.
So Americans trained in the scientific process method; if they willingly bind themselves to the defined Duties of American Patriots, to make clear what is going on is not science at all.
As Washington proclaimed on our first official Thanks Giving to the Creator, we are thankful for the diffusion of useful knowledge. The Union of Concern Scientists fails the test as they are. But hopefully they will rethink their foundations of philosophy rather than function as the most naive tools of nefarious politics and their 'collective good'.
Americans are aware of everything with understanding nothing. Thanks failed Union of Concern Scientists and a nearly completely dishonored press.
The elite in America has been given a scared Duty to inform and thereby empower the common sense of the average citizen. Both mostly refuse their duty leaving only the question of willfully or not.
Who needs science anyway? A bunch of bogus guys trying to get tenure and government money. All this climate-change "research" is just pure fiction. And I don't have to study it to know it's baloney. I can't wait for the five real Americans on the Supreme Court to declare climate change illegal. I'd like to see the greenies' faces then! (And I'm so sick of this crap about the Earth, God's chosen planet, revolving around the sun when it's so blindingly obvious that it's the other way around.)
This from the OLB member who will not even crack an Econ or Investment 101 book!
But the science part is really delusional. If we did all the Progressive Collectivists now demanded it would make no difference. Just penance of humanity on the way out I guess.
But the really delusional part is China is not going to generate more 'pollution' based on cheap coal. Already China generates twice the emissions America does.
In trying to prove they are 'Right' they completely forget what the purpose is supposed to be.
So the greatest special interest crime against humanity going corn based ethanol just goes on and on. It is fine to starve people to death as penance for being human.
"I can't wait for the five real Americans on the Supreme Court to declare climate change illegal. "
Which of the nine on the US Supreme Court, are the "five real Americans" you are talking about?
just look to the devistation of the rain forests around the world. Now you have your answer. More co2 less trees to draw the c02 in. Pretty easy to understand. Once the rainforests are destroyed you can't restore them.
Each year, phytoplankton floating in the seas' big blue expanse drink in 10 billion tons of carbon from the air (humans emit about 8 billion tons). Their shells and excretions rain down from the surface, providing a feast for creatures that recycle up to 90 percent of the carbon back into the water as CO2. Only a light dusting lands on the ocean floor.
Do we have to have this mindless flat earth pagan Progressive religion every day?
Rain Forests are best protected by improving economic productivity and living standards.
My goodness look at the return of American forests. No grand government plan. Just Americans looking out after their land as the good stewards nearly all of us are.
