    Wingnut warning: Round earth deniers, evolution deniers, germs and microbe deniers, geology deniers, please realize this topic is another one you are in denial about and it may be best if just skipped the piece altogether and continued on your way.

    'Aligning Security with Reality' by Pam Johnson

    "In his recent article "Climate Denial: can science and the truth withstand the merchants of poison?", former vice president Al Gore blasted Obama for failing to speak out vehemently against ongoing and impending climate catastrophes, referring to the dumping of 90 million tonnes of heat-trapping emissions into the earth's atmosphere every 24 hours as potentially destructive to "human civilization" as we know it.

    Citing statistics from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Gore wrote that "2010 was tied with 2005 as the hottest year measured since ... the 1880s." As a result of such over-heating, the Arctic ice cap lost a full 40 percent of its area over the last three decades, he added.""

    Quoting Gore on climate change?

    Did you know in "Earth in the Balance" Gore blamed the warming on water vapor?

    Yet the science doesn't support man-made change.

    Why do you deny science?

    It might.

    Depends on if its real.

    If it is, then pretty much everything we argue about is going to look like small potatoes by comparison.

    Well, well, folks once again, Al Gore passes another bolus of intellectual flatus, and all the lemmings come out of the woodwork. Reason doesn't matter, real science doesn't matter, all the evidence of academic and scientific fraud for the sake of an agenda that is more political than scientific doesn't matter; AGW is an article of faith, and anything that disproves it is HERESY!

    Let me spell it out for you lemmings: "climate change" is REAL, just as it has been for millions of years. The only thing "constant" about this planet's climate is that it keeps changing, largely driven by mechanisms we do not yet completely understand. AGW, by contrast, is a religion, a primarily political cult, populated almost exclusively by liberals, because it happens to dovetail with their "First World BAD, Third World GOOD" ideology, quite in vogue with the pseudo-intellectual Left of today. It's a fashion statement, once trendy but now more than a little dated.

    I know it's fun to march, chant the popular slogans, and carry signs; I know it's fun to relive the "glory days" of your hippie progenitors (or your own dysfunctional youth), and pretend you are actually doing something relevant, but really, your little "movement" is passe', and it is time to put away the signs, the tie-dyed shirts, the love beads and the Birkenstocks, and get back to that boring thing we call "the real world". Take a Prozac, and try to deal with it, until the next fad comes along, as I am certain it will, shortly. Now, be good little lemmings, and go hug a tree, save the whales, or do something else equally harmless to convince yourselves you actually matter, instead of trying to destroy Western Civilization. Either that, or just go play in traffic. The rest of us have gotten wise to the AGW scam, and no longer care what you think.
