    Hopefully, New York City will shortly be under water and effectively gone.

    Pity about Boston, though.

    Sure, the climate always has been changing.

    No proof that man is the MAJOR driving cause though. Records go back thousands of years that is was much warmer and much cooler at different periods. We all know this. It fluctuates.

    Blah blah blah.

    It's better to mitigate than fall for global governance.

    Even at the current rate, it would take centuries for all of the Greenland ice sheet to melt. There will be enough, however, to have significant negative consequences within our lifetimes.

    You must live down south.

    Negative for you perhaps.

    It is frickin' freezing out today.


    I can't wait for some globalized warmin'!

    If you'd like to see the evidence that the world is warming at an unprecedented RATE and that human activities are the primary cause, please visit "The Physical Science Basis" by Working Group I of the IPCC's Fifth Assessment Report. It may located at www.ipcc.ch.

    It has been warmer in the past. However, that temperature peak took place at less than 1/30th the current rate of warming.

    Your last line "better to mitigate than fall for global governance", sounds to be goggledygook. Perhaps you didn't type what you intended.

    LOL...

    Yeah, and the melting ice is revealing the remains of Viking settlements from 1000 years ago, before they built their own SUV's and caused an ice age.

    Or some bullshit.


    Stupid fucking communist MMGW zealots....

    Pray tell, for what does the MM in MMGW stand?

    Oh wait. "Man-Made"? Couldn't handle "anthropogenic"? What a maroon. And a stupid fucking nazi.
