    A stunning year in climate science reveals that human civilization is on the precipice Climate Progress

    This week marks the one-year anniversary of what the anti-science crowd successfully labeled ‘Climategate’. The media will be doing countless retrospectives, most of which will be wasted ink, like the Guardian’s piece — focusing on climate scientists at the expense of climate science, which is precisely the kind of miscoverage that has been going on for the whole year!

    I’ll save that my media critiques for Part 2, since I think that Climategate’s biggest impact was probably on the media, continuing their downward trend of focusing on style over substance, of missing the story of the century, if not the millennia.

    The last year or so has seen more scientific papers and presentations that raise the genuine prospect of catastrophe (if we stay on our current emissions path) that I can recall seeing in any other year.

    Oh my, Walleyes has nothing at all to rebut what the scientists have found, so he resorts to mindless derision. But mindlessness is his normal state.

    s0n.............been saying it for awhile now. You have the political IQ of a small soap dish. Always have. Those people who sell fad stuff in the early AM on the cable networks? They have morons like you in mind, the old adage being, "There is sucker born every minute".

    Why the climate debate is an exercise in futility!!!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Poll: Less Than 1/3 Of Americans Believe “Most Scientists Agree” On Global Warming
    Majority oppose cap and trade if it means higher energy bills

    Steve Watson,

    Tuesday, Dec 15, 2009

    An Associated Press-Stanford University poll (PDF) released today shows that just 31% of Americans believe that experts agree on the science behind global warming.

    Question 22 in the poll asked “Do you think most scientists agree with one another about whether or not global warming is happening, or do you think there is a lot of disagreement among scientists on this issue?”

    66% of respondants said that in their opinion “most scientists disagree”.

    The figures suggest that the public is not buying into the notion that a “scientific consensus” believes global warming is caused by human activity.

    As we know, the establishment likes to engage in regular mass public deception by claiming the debate about global warming is over and any dissent is tantamount to holocaust denial, despite the fact that hundreds of scientists have challenged the contention of the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change.

    Unsurprisingly, the AP chose not to report on this figure in its write up, instead focusing on a figure of 40 percent, still a minority, saying they thought U.S. action to slow global warming in the future would create jobs, and quoting “a self-described fan of environmentalist and former Vice President Al Gore.”

    The poll also indicated that a majority of 59% would refuse to support cap-and-trade legislation if it meant paying $10 extra a month for electricity.

    75% of respondents said they would oppose the cap-and-trade system if it raised their electricity bill by $25 a month.

    Overwheling majorities of 78% and 77% respectively said they opposed increasing taxes on electricity and increasing energy prices as a way for the Federal government to try to reduce global warming.

    Poll: Less Than 1/3 Of Americans Believe “Most Scientists Agree” On Global Warming
















    This is the grim reality faced by every single environmental nut who spends 14 hours a day posting up drivel about this temperature and that heat wave............this glacier melting and that lake warming. Fcukking total morons.............might as well be all gathering for an exercise in fcukking navel contemplation!!!


    Go look at any poll............they all say the same thing.:fu::lmao::funnyface::boobies::slap::funnyface::boobies::fu::lmao::fu::boobies::eusa_dance::2up:



    So think about it............Ive said for a long, long time, these people so consumed with this stuff are fcukking mental cases. It would be akin to me walking out to a snow back every day for several months and sticking my head in the snowbank for 10 minutes in the hopes that my next door babe neighbor will come over and ask me to bang her.

    Separating the science from the politics s0n................might as well be walking up Main Street buck-naked shaking a bannana at people announcing loudly, "The End is Near!!!"
