    "Recent events have caused speculation that the current Republican Party is anti-science.

    For a nation that values its traditional science and technology edge over most of the rest of the world, it is somewhat astonishing that so many Republican politicians treat science as unproven theory or disregard it completely." ~ Ann McFeatters


    Climate Change Deniers: First they said it isn't happening, then they said it was real but humans had nothing to do with it, then they said maybe it's natural warming or maybe it's caused by humans but we can't do anything about it, then they said it was real but...



    Climate Change Deniers are Almost Extinct | NationofChange

    Most North Americans know that human-caused global warming is real, even if political leaders don’t always reflect or act on that knowledge. According to a recent poll, only two percent of Canadians reject the overwhelming scientific evidence that Earth is warming at alarming rates—a figure that may seem surprising given the volume of nonsense deniers (many of them funded by the fossil fuel industry) spread through letters to the editor, blogs, radio call-ins and website comments.

    Polling indicates more deniers live in the U.S., but they still make up just 15 percent of that population.

    The truth is, as most of us know, that global warming is real and humans are major contributors, mainly because we wastefully burn fossil fuels. We also know solutions lie in energy conservation, shifting to renewable sources, and changing our patterns of energy and fuel use, for example, by improving public transit and moving away from personal vehicles.

    Scientists have been warning about global warming for decades. It’s too late to stop it now, but we can lessen its severity and impacts. The side benefits are numerous: less pollution and environmental destruction, better human health, stronger and more diversified economies, and a likely reduction in global conflicts fueled by the rapacious drive to exploit finite resources.

    We can all work to reduce our individual impacts. But we must also convince our political and business leaders that it’s time to put people—especially our children, grandchildren and generations yet to come—before profits.

    The astro-turfed anti-science cult of AGW denial, sponsored by the fossil fuel industry and the oil billionaires, is fast sliding down the poop chute into the sewer pit of history, along with the Flat Earth Society, as temperatures soar and evidence of sudden climate changes becomes more and more unmistakable to the general public. You can only fool people with propaganda, smears and lies for so long when the evidence for AGW is so widespread and obvious. Only the brainwashed and retarded ideologues are still holding fast to the denier cult dogmas and myths these days.

    We have global warming every summer and global cooling every winter.

    Are you quoting an article or is this all your own thinking?

    If it is an article, you are required to give a link.

    If it is your own work, can we get a link to the polls you acquired your information from.

    I knew you were really retarded but are you really so retarded that you aren't aware that summer and winter are reversed in the southern hemisphere? Do you even understand the meaning of "global"?

    All we know for certain is that Americans are evil and need to be stopped from melting the polar ice caps. They can accomplish this by either: mass die off and/or fully implementing an 18th century agrarian economy (that's Progress for you)
