    Yep. Scientific evidence against idiotic flap-yap from the whores of the energy corporations. Like Senator Inhofe.

    However, this is also one of those issues that will sink the wingnut wing of the GOP. Like women's and gay rights, it is a battle they will enter into with lies and innuendo, zero evidence, and, in the end, the American Voter will recognize their lies for what they are, and they will pay the price.

    For even as the gauntlet is thown down, over half of our nation is in drougth. And two of our major cities have seen massive destruction from storms, destruction which is still not totally cleaned up in New Orleans after 8 years. The Arctic Ice will be gone for part of the summer between 2015 and 2020. Every decade, our snowpacks in the lower 48 melt ealier, and start collecting later. Glacier National Park will have no glaciers by 2030. The CO2 equivelent in our atmosphere is well over 450 ppm. And the effects we are feeling today, is from the CO2 in the atmsphere 30 to 50 years ago.

    No matter what we do now, there is a rough road ahead. And it will get worse for our descendents if we continue on our present path.

    yuk.......yuk............

    Oh.....and he's been talking about this shit for 6 years and hasnt done dick. Had a HUGE opportunity until 2010 and didnt do dick.


    Chances of getting any kind of significant climate legislation through the HOUSE??


    zero


    Even Democrats in most districts will laugh their balls off. What Dem is going to go to theri constituency and say, "Look.....we need to do something about climate change. Although it is going to double your electricty bill, please understand how important this is!!!! ( as the representative stands in front of an ice sculpture ):2up:


    Ive noticed something over the last several years on here.........those people with an astonishingly high IQ in terms of things science related at the same time have the political IQ's of a small soap dish.

    Passing over 30 useless votes on the Health Care Act. Denying several states Federal aid in helping clean up after a major natural disaster. For nearly three months now.

    That's your insanity, not reality.

    Human industrial and transportation carbon emissions are what is driving the climate changes so curtailing carbon emissions will do something "about climate change".
