    [Cut the Global Warming horse sh!t. Put some sanity back into the program, between NASA's current presidentially mandated Mission To Mecca and its global warming advocacy, the once prestigious, first and foremost in the world manned space flight agency is rapidly on its way to laughing stock status]

    "49 former NASA scientists and astronauts sent a letter to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden last week admonishing the agency for it’s role in advocating a high degree of certainty that man-made CO2 is a major cause of climate change while neglecting empirical evidence that calls the theory into question.

    The group, which includes seven Apollo astronauts and two former directors of NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, are dismayed over the failure of NASA, and specifically the Goddard Institute For Space Studies (GISS), to make an objective assessment of all available scientific data on climate change. They charge that NASA is relying too heavily on complex climate models that have proven scientifically inadequate in predicting climate only one or two decades in advance."

    (Sarcasm)

    Carbon dioxide is a poison to animals, but key to plant life.

    I wonder what the plants would think if they knew we were trying to suffocate them for the good of the planet?

    Know why?
    No bucks. No Buck Rogers.

    They're afraid asshat conservatives will cut funding if NASA continues to tell THE SAME STORY AS EVERY OTHER SCIENTIFIC BODY ON THE PLANET bar none. That climate change is happening and it's man made.

    No scientific body of national or international standing has maintained a dissenting opinion; the last was the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, which in 2007 updated its 1999 statement rejecting the likelihood of human influence on recent climate with its current non-committal position.[10][11] Some other organizations, primarily those focusing on geology, also hold non-committal positions. There are also groups of individuals outside national or international organizations that have expressed their dissenting opinions and counterarguments in venues such as public petitions.

    Get over it. Climate change is real no matter how badly you don't like it and wish it wasn't happening.
    Talk about sticking future generations with YOUR dirty laundry.

    It's all a scam that dopes like you are just eating up. Peddle your junk science elsewhere.

    Now, I think I'll go fire up my Bronco with its 351 Windsor and take a drive!

    Yes global warming/climate change is a scam perpetrated by every climatologists in the world, every science organization in the world, 98% of scientists, and every organization that gathers weather related data.
    Or perhaps a more easier explanation is that all the right-wing goons with high school educations are just stupider then dirt

    Stupider than dirt?

    Perhaps!!!

    But who cares..........we're winning.

    Of course, perhaps you can come up with a single link to show us all that your side is winning s0n?? Show us where the "scientific consensus" is having ANY impact on energy policy s0n?

    Green is gay...........AND........green is fringe. Like it or not, its the way it is no matter how hysterical the k00ks get!!!:eusa_dance:

    AGU Position Statement: Human Impacts on Climate

    AGU Position Statement

    Human Impacts on Climate

    Adopted by Council December 2003
    Revised and Reaffirmed December 2007

    The Earth's climate is now clearly out of balance and is warming. Many components of the climate system—including the temperatures of the atmosphere, land and ocean, the extent of sea ice and mountain glaciers, the sea level, the distribution of precipitation, and the length of seasons—are now changing at rates and in patterns that are not natural and are best explained by the increased atmospheric abundances of greenhouse gases and aerosols generated by human activity during the 20th century. Global average surface temperatures increased on average by about 0.6°C over the period 1956–2006. As of 2006, eleven of the previous twelve years were warmer than any others since 1850. The observed rapid retreat of Arctic sea ice is expected to continue and lead to the disappearance of summertime ice within this century. Evidence from most oceans and all continents except Antarctica shows warming attributable to human activities. Recent changes in many physical and biological systems are linked with this regional climate change. A sustained research effort, involving many AGU members and summarized in the 2007 assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, continues to improve our scientific understanding of the climate.

    During recent millennia of relatively stable climate, civilization became established and populations have grown rapidly. In the next 50 years, even the lower limit of impending climate change—an additional global mean warming of 1°C above the last decade—is far beyond the range of climate variability experienced during the past thousand years and poses global problems in planning for and adapting to it. Warming greater than 2°C above 19th century levels is projected to be disruptive, reducing global agricultural productivity, causing widespread loss of biodiversity, and—if sustained over centuries—melting much of the Greenland ice sheet with ensuing rise in sea level of several meters. If this 2°C warming is to be avoided, then our net annual emissions of CO2 must be reduced by more than 50 percent within this century. With such projections, there are many sources of scientific uncertainty, but none are known that could make the impact of climate change inconsequential. Given the uncertainty in climate projections, there can be surprises that may cause more dramatic disruptions than anticipated from the most probable model projections.

    With climate change, as with ozone depletion, the human footprint on Earth is apparent. The cause of disruptive climate change, unlike ozone depletion, is tied to energy use and runs through modern society. Solutions will necessarily involve all aspects of society. Mitigation strategies and adaptation responses will call for collaborations across science, technology, industry, and government. Members of the AGU, as part of the scientific community, collectively have special responsibilities: to pursue research needed to understand it; to educate the public on the causes, risks, and hazards; and to communicate clearly and objectively with those who can implement policies to shape future climate.

    GSA press release - Geological Society of America Adopts New Position Statement on Climate Change

    Geological Society of America Adopts New Position Statement on Climate Change

    Boulder, CO, USA – At a meeting of the Council held on 17 April 2010, The Geological Society of America approved a consensus statement on climate change science.

    “Decades of scientific research have shown that climate can change from both natural and anthropogenic causes. The Geological Society of America (GSA) concurs with assessments by the National Academies of Science (2005), the National Research Council (2006), and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007) that global climate has warmed and that human activities (mainly greenhouse-gas emissions) account for most of the warming since the middle 1900s. If current trends continue, the projected increase in global temperature by the end of the twenty-first century will result in large impacts on humans and other species. Addressing the challenges posed by climate change will require a combination of adaptation to the changes that are likely to occur and global reductions of CO2 emissions from anthropogenic sources.”

    Recommendations in the statement relate to the need for effective strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, for comprehensive planning to address challenges posed by future climate change, and research to improve understanding of climate change effects.

    GSA president Jean Bahr said, “I appreciate the efforts of our volunteer members to develop a clear statement that reflects GSA’s commitment to ‘supporting the application of geoscience knowledge and insight to human needs, aspirations, and Earth stewardship.’ ”

    Read the entire position statement at www.geosociety.org/positions/pos10_climate.pdf.
