    The Fiction Of Climate Science - Forbes.com

    Interesting... I am Sure, in Spite of the Record Cold we are having in Denver Right now and have been since October and Following an Abnormally Cool Summer, that "Global Warming" is still Coming...

    Or MAYBE the "Experts" were Right back in the 70's...

    Either way, let's Punish our Country Economically!

    :)

    peace...

    Since it now appears that the Earth has not warmed and may have cooled, look for the Warmers to abandon the Warming ship and have a new breed of "Scientist" start saying that increases in CO2 are contributing to, wait for it, wait, just a second -- Global Cooling!

    Whether the earth is warming or cooling is irrellevant. That's why the name was changed to "climate change".
    Personally I see manbearpig as a much bigger immediate problem.

    Using their Logic, if it's in Fact "Cooling", then it's Time to Bring back American Muscle and Leaded Gas:

    It wasn't that long ago that the "Experts" were Crying, "Ice Age"...

    It wasn't that long ago that suggesting an "asteroid" was the cause of the demise of the dinosaurs was considered controversial. Now we know from a layer of iridium that stretches from the gulf of Mexico up through the entire center of the United States that indeed a meteor did impact and if it wasn't the cause of wiping out the dinosaurs, it certainly played a part since we are able to pinpoint the time of the meteor to the time the dinosaurs died.

    It's estimated that a small meteor over Russia a few tens of meters across was
    about 1,000 times as powerful as the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan and about one-third the power of the Tsar Bomba, the largest nuclear weapon ever detonated. The explosion knocked over an estimated 80 million trees over 2,150 square kilometres (830 sq mi). It is estimated that the shockwave from the blast would have measured 5.0 on the Richter scale.

    Tunguska event - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Even after knowledge of this destruction the world spends only 2 or 3 million a year tacking meteors and asteroids.

    How much is spent studying the earth itself? Don't know, but I suspect it's less than is what is spent making DVD players.

    I love it when the right, which pushes mystical nonsense, such as "magical creation" over science points and laughs at scientists as not knowing "enough" when they don't know anything. Stupid, dumb-ass right wingers. Know nothings. They depend on science for everything and add nothing themselves. What a waste of biological material. Good for breeding and nothing else. At least they feed the worms when they die. I guess that's something.

    It's aliens. Here is an clip from the page that proves it.

    9. Global warming makes planet more comfortable for everybody.
    Little-discussed fact about global warming: It will make all the least-inhabitable regions of the planet into a tropical paradise. Climate change is basically a massive, multinational conspiracy to get everyone so comfy on Earth that they never want to go to ultra-cold Mars or the even colder reaches of deep space. It's good when people believe they actually CHOSE to be quarantined, isn't it?

    Denver CO Weather 80201 Forecast: The Denver Post

    Currently 14 Degrees in D-Town... I would think that's at least 40 Degrees below Average...

    Our First Blizzard was before Halloween...

    These things weren't Supposed to Happen anymore...

    I Remember the Drought Years when it was Pushing 100 during a Lot of July and August earlier in the Decade and the Algore's of the "Global Warming" Movement were Declaring that to be the Norm because of Evil American Consumerism and our SUVs...

    Cycle's Come and Go...

    It's Witches Tit Cold in D-Town and in a LOT of Places...

    Didn't Houston just get Snow?...

    Remember Vegas Last Season getting Snow?...

    Yet ALL of the Ice will be Gone by 2012...

    As Glaciers Return to the Colorado Rockies.

    I Laughed at these Hammerheads During the Drought...

    Permanent Water Restrictions were being DEMANDED by Elected DemocRATS here in Denver because they were Sure that what was Happening then was only going to get Worse.

    They Insisted we wouldn't see these Winters again, and that Many if Not ALL of the Resorts would go out of Business because there wouldn't be enough Snow in the Rockies to Keep the Resorts Open.

    I Love Emotional Liberals... <And I Apoligize for the Redundancy of that Statement. :rofl:

    :)

    peace...

    Not at all.

    I do get pissed off at the lack of support for science. Science is what has separated us in the past from the rest of the world. However, the right is making sure that gap is closed. Their goal is to "defeat" science and replace it with, what? Still not sure. Replace it with "stupid"? Their goal remains unclear. But their strategy is "not science".

    I would appreciate science for science's sake, not science influenced by geopolitics.
