    "What would you think if your government didn't believe in gravity? If your senator alleged that, because they couldn't see it, perhaps it didn't exist. To many, this might seem absurd—the science is enough to know that it's real."

    The Climate Change Deniers in Congress
    [​IMG]

    "Almost 30 years ago, a NASA scientist named James Hansen pleaded with Congress, under the Reagan Administration, to accept the evidence and do something about it. "It is already happening now," Hansen said before a Congressional committee in 1988."

    "Fast-forward three decades, and the United States is facing one of its most anti-science Congresses in history. Many members of the Senate and House of Representatives have gone on-record to denounce climate change as a hoax. Others have proven through their votes that regulating greenhouse gas emissions is not a priority. And still, some state representatives claim to believe in human-made climate change, but consistently support policies that would erode initiatives to combat it."

    The colors used here are no mistake. The alignment between a representatives position on AGW and his political party is almost perfect. And you can see many instances of the same reasoning you'll find here on this forum, in the halls of our Congress. The most common answer seen from our representatives is that the Earth's climate has always been dynamic and that the changes over the last century and a half are simply Mother Nature at work. Unsurprisingly, that reasoning is as easily refuted as all the rest. Of course the Earth's climate is dynamic, but through its very long history, that dynamicism has resulted in changes orders of magnitude slower than the changes we are witnessing now. And the various variable factors that naturally control our climate: ex solar irradiance and orbital mechanics, indicate that we should be cooling now. But, of course, we are not.

    So, once again, would you vote for a representative that didn't believe in gravity? What if he thought we were all actually held down by magnetism or by wee demons trying to drag us to Hell? Would you vote for a senate candidate that believed the Earth was flat, that humans had never traveled to space, much less the moon? Would you vote for a presidential candidate who believed that modern medicine was an evil to be eliminated from modern society? The belief that the rate of warming we are currently experiencing is a natural climatic change (or a lie constructed by thousands of corrupt scientists) and that human GHG emissions have no involvement, is just as false and just as dangerous.

    Climate always changes, always has. No proof humans effect weather. I would not vote for any nutjob who is on the GW bandwagon. No matter how much tax they extort, they could not move the temp gauge 0.0001 deg.

    James Hansen is a heavy investor in Al Gore's carbon credits. That is something that does not exist. He has a finsncial interest in supporting the hoax of climate change.

    Ask yourself what any US law will do to stop this. America is a very small country. We're already doing more than half of the countries in the world. China, Mexico, India, Pakistan, and many others are doing very little to stop pollution in the air, land, and water. Most of the plastics being thrown in the ocean comes from foreign sources. Yet these people claim that if the US just stops everything and goes back to the stone-age, well we can save the planet all by ourselves.
    This is pie-in-the-sky Bull shit.

    So this winter which is still going on, doesnt matter to you at all? Where did all this cold come from if the Earth is warming up year after year? I keep asking the question and the dumbass liberals have no clue. How many years we have left 12? Did AOC say that last year? Shouldn't it be 11 years now, or will be a continual 12 years? Then 1000 years from now it will still be 12 years? Fucking insane people have taken over the Democraps.

    :wtf::wtf::wtf:

    What is the OP talking about?

    Congress has had 20 years to do something about climate change! Two decades and back in 2009, had a DUM president and a DUM congress. What did they do? Zero. Why? Because unlike the hysterical social oddballs that navigate in this forum, nobody cares that much about climate change! These climate crusaders have the political IQ of a small soap dish. Not only is it not complicated.....it is simple. Voters don't give a crap...…:spinner::spinner:…..they have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more pressing matters to worry about. Which is why nobody is calling their representative since the AGW bozos came up with their scam. It has yet to impress anybody. Doesn't matter who is in office!:th_smileysw2wqa:
