    I guess Americans aren't as ignorant about science as the Republicans think they are.

    Most back a treaty on global warming - USATODAY.com

    Perhaps one should read beyond the first paragraph lest one end up looking like a complete fool....

    If they think the climate science supports such an action, yeah, they are.

    And oddly, all of Europe and even India and China acknowledge the impacts of global warming.

    It seems only the Flat Earth Republicans still need more convincing

    Once again RETARD no one argues that a rapid rise in temperature would not be bad for man kind. We argue that first there is NO rapid rise in temperature occurring and second that what temperature increase that did occur can not be proven to be the responsibility of man.

    If as the supposed scientific data claims, CO2 has caused the latest increase which QUIT in 1998, why is it that since 1998 C)2 has continued to rise yet temperature has not?

    Why is it that when one looks at past periods CO2 FOLLOWS the rise in temperature it does no precede it?

    Oh you and you disingenuous environmental fruit cakes and your word games. Acknowledging the impact of global warming is a bit different than discussing the impact of MAN on global warming, you itellectually dishonest twit.

    Actually one can not deny that warmer temperature would have some great benefits for the world. There would be the potential to end world hunger due to longer growing seasons and the availabiity of more arid land. Imagine if they could grow potatoes in Greenland.......again!

    There's no convincing the flat-earthers, they're a lost cause.
