What you are denying is that the present change is proceeding at a rate never before seen in history and correlates with Humans producing excess CO2.


Please stop HIJACKING MY THREAD!!!

Start your on TOPIC on YOUR SUBJECT

 

 


How am I "hijacking your thread" that is about Human Induced Climate Change not happening because the Science Committee is investigating it?

There are only one or two posters here that deny Climate Change and Global Warming, along with the need to address it as agressively as we can.

 

That is representative of the public in general, and also the science community. Those in denial are the minority. When will the Republicans in Washington 'get' that? Or will they continue to bow to their Corporate and Elite (Koch) masters?


@ChasKy53 who on this board is denying that the climate is changes?  I have not read any post that said that.

 

The climate has been changing ever since the beginning of time.  Remember the ice age?

 

Please clarifiy your statement or fabrication or point me towards a recent post to back up you accusation of such imaginary posters.

 

 btw, this thread is about the new probe the Science Committee is making to get the REAL data from NOAA that has been witheld since 2015.  Do you have a relevant comment on the actual topic?  Or would you rather not talk about the topic and just throw out insults?

 

Can we stay on topic here?

First you used Brietbart as a resource.

 

Then, you used tabloids as resources.

 

And now, you are using a blog as a resource!!!!!!!

 

And it is a blog that has been described as inaccurate, untustworthy, and highly partisan, at that.

 

Why don't you ever use a legitimate source as a resource?


Rather sad, isn't it?  Those that whine the most about "FAKE News", are usually those that embrace unfactural opinions and claim it is indeed, "news".  Frauds.


Sad?  I guess so....   That is what they do, though.   Even more sad?  The Frauds have lots of willing targets for their propaganda that refuse to "wake up and smell before they swallow".

Maybe the Science committee will be successful this time in getting the REAL it has requested in order to make sound policy suggestions.

 

 

Could you please explain how the Pentagon managed to be so badly duped? (perhaps you should contact them and send them to Mr. Wattsup for the truth) Smiley Happy

 

Pentagon orders commanders to prioritize climate change in all military actions

The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies.

A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.”

It says the military will not be able to maintain effectiveness unless the directive is followed. It orders the establishment of a new layer of bureaucracy — a wide array of “climate change boards, councils and working groups” to infuse climate change into “programs, plans and policies.”

From the original post:

 

This is getting serious. NOAA defied efforts at Congressional oversight when President Obama was in charge. I doubt NOAA will enjoy the same immunity from oversight under President Trump.

 

You can’t prosecute a scientist for making a mistake. You can potentially prosecute a civil servant if they are grossly negligent, cut corners, and provide misleading information to the public.

MY COMMENT

 

As usual the left here has MISSED the point... again.

 

 


No, you have missed the point.  Since they don't believe in actual science and probably are incapable of analyzing scientific facts, for them to decide that a scientist is wrong, or a civil servent reported "incorrect facts" is ridiculous and insulting.  Are we going to go back in time where people were prosecuted for their scientific (i.e Earth revolving around the Sun) beliefs. 

 

Just because a bunch of partisan politicians say something does not make it correct (or even intelligent).

 

Even if the Science committee decides Climate Change is not happening, it does not mean it isn't BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT SCIENTISTS AND HAVE DONE ZERO RESEARCH!

Just because it is called the "Science Committee" does NOT mean these people are scientists!  They are nothing more than partisan politicians who probably don't have a grasp as to what they are "investigating".  Since Smith, by his religion, does not believe in medical science, does he think he can pray the Earth into health?  Just asking.
