  • There is just too much evidence that man is changing the climate. Remember all that need be effected is our razor thin atmosphere - each year we dumped about 70 trillion pounds of CO2 into it. The polar regions are effected the most by this - temperatures have risen several degrees there. This produces add on effects that release even more CO2.

    What the "green movement" has done is make everything worse. Their opposition to nuclear power increased our dependence on coal. Their forcing wind energy upon us does not diminish our dependence on fossil fuel it increases it. That along with new EPA regulations has severely reduced our generating capacity and the reliability of our electrical system nationwide - making large scale blackouts more likely. Think about it, going without electricity for weeks at a time.

    The climatologists studying this problem readily admit they don't have all the answers. In the meantime they are continuing their research and discovering new information almost every day. What are the deniers doing? Well nothing, except continuing to deny.

    The scientists are warning us that what we are doing will "probably" have consequences. It's similar to a warning about taking a nap on the center stripe of a highway. You're probably going to get run over.....it's not certain but very probable.

    Yes I do set standards high on things. I do that on most things in life. If you have a policy that affects the entire globe, you better walk the walk and not talk the talk. His house might be energy independent, but what about his Leer jets and limos?
    Tell me this how come a Canadian inventor created smoke filler for mufflers was denied by the green movement? How come the Scientists during the late 60’s and 70’s were wrong about Global Cooling? If they were wrong, then could the global warning crowd be wrong too?

  • i'm sure the Green Movement has made their share of errors of omission, but we certainly can't hold up the Global Warming Deniers crowd as a bastion of total honesty and forthrightness. it has to go both ways.

    you've set your standards so high that apparently the only group of people who could rightfully speak on environmental problems is the Amish. what Al Gore has to say about environmental policy can't immediately be discredited because he's rich. and in fact, his house is energy-independent.

    and if you're talking governmental interference, i'm not sure you could find a bigger culprit than oil. Big Oil was our last president. Big Oil decides our foreign policy.

    so apparently you've been forced to paint your house white because of the Energy Regulatory Commission? really? nobody is trying to take your job. energy independence doesn't mean no drilling at all, but equal opportunity for other viable energy sources, which have never had equal footing to oil. it speaks volumes that the best research on distributed generation and alternative energy is coming out of Canada and not the US.

    Guess what? I do not like some in the so-called Green movement for several reasons. Mainly for their lying, their destructive polices, their two faced lives. I no longer have respect for and like Al Gore. Why because he left out many facts I stated below. Why were those who preached global warming on the TV fly private jets and have mansions? Which I might add uses more energy than a regular wood frame house. Can you please tell me that?
    See people are tired of being lied to. A person cannot have the freedom to enjoy himself of what life have to offer without having a special interests group or a government agency getting in the way. I, as a man, should not be forced to paint my own house white just to satisfy a green organization. I should not be penniless and broke just because a green organization wants to shut down my job at oil field. This isn’t a right or left issue, this is a common sense issue. Sadly we lack that common sense.

  • sad that taking care of the earth is considered by some to be a "movement."

    many records of severe climate change since the ice ages, but records also show that weather had begun to mellow out considerably to present time, at least until somewhat recently. i'm not pointing at anything, but to immediately call it only nature is disingenuous.

    that the vast majority of climate scientists believe in global warming makes the deniers the fringe and not the other way around.

    recorded increase in extreme weather phenomenon including record high and low average temperatures across the world, recorded change in ocean temperatures, recorded sizeable melting of the polar caps....there really comes a point where you can't keep standing in the middle of the pool and insist that you're still not wet.

  • The eco-liberal wing of the Democratic Party and the Green Party should stop lying to the American People concerning climate change. Anyone who can say scientists this, scientists that, but who are those scientists? The reports Al Gore have rally up and down about have flaws. Even the scientists who compile the UN reports have disagreements on the origins of Global Warming. No one on the pro-global Warming side refuse to acknowledged that Sun Spot activity and the warming of every inner planets of our solar system. This is flatly an agenda driven policy for and by those in the Green movement.

  • There can be no doubt about climate changes. Throughout the history of the planet, the climate has changed many times. The last ice age from about 26,000 to 13,000 years ago saw ice sheets 3-4 KM thick as far south as Wisconsin, Minnesota and Oregon. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_age)

    The climate changed and the ice sheets melted. Gee, do you suppose the wooly mammoths had Chevys and pickup trucks to pollute the atmosphere, or could it have been (gasp!) nature? Maybe all those wooly mammoths had flatulence problems even more severe than the cattle of today?

  • seems pretty convenient to be able to pick and choose which scientists are the "REAL" ones and which ones aren't.

    and some pretty wonky logic in the article. funny, i didn't see any references. guess you can just make stuff up now and publish it.

  • Global Warming is nothing more than a continuing attempt to foist a fraud on all of us. The list of REAL scientists, unlike the "scientists" at the UN and other proponents, who are signing on to the denier cause grows by the day.

  • I agree with David, it's all about money. The world is going through changes with nature, once Iceland was green, now it's covered with ice.

  • "If sea ice in the Arctic diminishes, it is cited as irrefutable proof of global warming. But if sea ice in the Antarctic increases, it is ignored."

    On the other hand, "NASA Mission Detects Significant Antarctic Ice Mass Loss."

    Conclusion....Deming is a pretty weird dude and, oh yeah he is full of crap!

  • "A scientific theory cannot be "denied." Only a belief can be denied."

    Not true.
    Not only can a scientific theory be denied, scientific FACTS are denied all the time.

    Those that do are referred to as conspiracy nutcases.
    They deny that man ever landed on the moon.
    They deny that the earth is round (Yes, the flat earth society still exists to this day.)
