    There isn't anything in the new climate change report that challenges the overwhelming scientific consensus about the cause of global warming. However, that is unlikely to stop Republicans, lobbyists, and industry lawyers from using it to try to stop the Obama administration from regulating greenhouse gases without Congressional action.

    Global warming is happening. I don't think regulating carbon emissions by the US is going to halt it, slow it down, or reverse it.

    There would need to be a consensus to challenge first.

    "Overwhelming scientific consensus" is not a substitute for scientific fact.

    Don't you know. The scientific community gets to vote on what is fact or not now. Nevermind the actual data.

    At a time when even the speed of light as the upper limit on travel in the physical Universe falls into question, you still can't find even one single repeatable scientific experiment that validates your foregone conclusions, yet you insist the "Scientific community" give you props.

    You should get booted off of every campus in this country

    Then clearly the left can't argue against us.
