We have absolutely no way of knowing which of them are actually working for Putin, and which of them - although American citizens - have been unknowingly drinking Daddy Putin's Koolade for the last five or so years...

  Richva- By all means, stop watching ACCREDITED NEWS sites!

By all means start  watching politically motivated, yellow journalism, junk tabloid rags like Breitbart. By all means start watching Fox news, which is the same, and then we can all be totally oblivious to the real world, and obviously  oblivious to politically motivated garbage.

 Hey they say ignorance is bliss!!

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

As those who deny the obvious continue to allow the destruction of our planet,  do you suppose, when it finally dawns on them that we are now beyond the tipping point,  they will take any responsibility? or will they blame the scientists,  who for years pleaded with all to do something about this,  for not having done enough????

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

Not looking for proof it is not man made as we all know you can't prove a negative. However, it would be appropriate to have a study which did NOT support the theory of man made climate change. That has not happened. All evidence points to the positive. 

 

Please provide links to show what statistics were fudged. I have heard the claim but never seen any scientific studies which showed different statistics. "Until you have data, you are just another individual with an opinion"

 

We all know the climate changes.  We all know people die but when you point an Uzi at someone and pull the trigger with live rounds, we might be suspicious that this death was not cause naturally. The graph below shows  how the C02 in the atmosphere correlates to the emergence of human activity.  NASA has a lovely list of all the changes in the climate and impacts on ocean levels, glaciers, etc. which have accelerated more than any other time in the HISTORY OF THE EARTH. 

 

In short, the only folks trying to deny man made climate change are a plucky group of energy company millionaires and Brietbart.

nothappening--the denial of the obvious only adds to the problem.  But, then again, denial is easier.  It means that you don't have to do anything or worry about what the problem means for the human race.

You have a lot more links than I gave you, but Dr. Spencer thinks the world could be cooling, Friends of Science has long been recognized as a Canadian astroturf organization, well funded by the petroleum industry, and the National Association of Scholars is a falsely labeled conservative front group. I stopped there. You are promoting pernicious conservative climate science denial. These organizations only interest in the subject is how to keep burning fossil fuels. Thanks, but by now, we know better.

   Here in lies the hypocrisy or blatant ignorance of the RW and their denial of SCIENCE.    They seem to want cherry pick what is "good science", even though they haven't a clue about what research will be curtailed by the decrease in federal funding.   

    This research is done, paid for - and yet, if a CEO is a BFF of WH, then maybe they can get the Admin to kinda sorta bury / suppress the report, because it would be bad for the Corporation. 

 

     These same people pontificate about their high moral values and how their agenda is the only way to "make the country safe for the next generations" - well except for all the poison that Corporate American wants to use to poison the people / land, yep, that stuff that will be passed on to future generations.

How sad and unnerving it is that science is so embattled that people have to schedule nation-wide marches to defend it. Have we regressed to the superstition of the Middle Ages?


Science will ALWAYS be under attack by the neoRepublicans simply because none of their policies or programs can withstand the totally unbiased examination that science provides.

 

Their base demands the "right" to live segregated lives and ingest or spew whatever toxic (or useless) substance their latest guru tells them is good, prevent their children from being vaccinated so epidemics of childhood disease that had vansihed for generations are re-appearing and get their medical care from the ER.

 

Their owners demand the "right" to get rich selling the base all those toxic things and charge whatever they want for actual medicines.
