Posted on 03/30/2014 5:33:31 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
YOKOHAMA, Japan Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the worlds oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control.
The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or in some cases going extinct.

I promise I’ll follow the libs as soon as they start living the life they want for all of us. Twigs for breakfast. Nuts for lunch. Insects for dinner. Freezing in the winter, scalding in the summer. Nobody can travel more than 50 miles from his/her birthplace over their entire lives. No more vacation trips. Live in a 350 sq ft. apartment next to the light rail system.
You first, Libs. Then I’ll take you seriously.

Did I miss a catastrophe?
still hoping people will drink the kool-aid of fraudulent pseudoscience.....
What? So we should be immune from changes in the climate, where for eons we had to adapt?
Then to pretend we know intermediate and long terms affects of making a change in the climate if we could?
So the climate changed and we did it. Is is bad in the intermediate and long term? They can’t answer that. We know the climate will be different, it always surprises, but is it bad overall?
Smells like BS to me. Become a commie or the world will end tomorrow.
Asteroids. You forgot asteroids.
The worse will always be “yet to come”
I think you just described most far east societies
And they all want to come here
This Winter was change enough for me...
And if there is global warming, doesn’t that mean more arable land with which to grow food?
These people can not find their asses with two hands and a clue and they think they can control the average temperature of a planet by reducing human contributions to CO2 in the atmosphere?
People have made a lot of money over the years by proclaiming, 'The Worst Is Yet to Come."
To the idiot algore believers, it will change again over hundreds of years, and you assholes can't do anything about it.
And higher taxes will fix it! Money will fix the planet that can be controlled by humans!!
Well, a good number of environmentalists would like to kill 90% of us off and the sooner the better. The climate will continue to change because that’s what it’s always done.
If we get rid of domesticated animals to help with the methane and outlaw the internal combustion engine, that should starve at least 50% of us. The remaining people will live such meager and cheerless lives that those not in power will lose their will to live.
“The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages And we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet isnt going anywhere. WE are!” - George Carlin
No Phosphates, so we must wear dirty clothes to fix the planet.
This guy Justin Gillis is a real jerk.
I looked around and found an article on him. He has dedicated his life to being crazy:
I’m doing my part to save mother Gia.....
I refuse to have the gas station pump print me a receipt when I gas up my evil truck...
You know first steps are important...!
Yes, the biggest one of all:
By the way, you might want to ask the moderator to correct the author’s name.
This thing reads like a Dr. Suess or Bill Peet children’s book.
This from the “paper of record”...
Don’t you get it? The climate, prior to the invention of the SUV, was always static, predictable and pleasant.
We never had “wild weather” until Americans invented the SUV.
The IPCC is a graphic example in the Dictionary under the word “worst”.
The Algores of the world want to live like the Jetson’s all the while they want you an I to live like the Flintstones.
“Did I miss a catastrophe?”
Sign all your rights over to us NOW or the global warming monster will get you!!!
There must be a bunch missing.
You forgot cell phone cancer and Common Core.
And volcanoes, make that SUPER volcanoes.
Yet liberals think the U.S. needs to lead the charge (and this is applicable only if climate change is remotely possible...and that is at best debatable).
The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
Yabut, when was wurst first introduced?
They roll out the “The honey bees are disappearing” every 10 years or so. They think plants can’t pollinate on their own.
Cyclamate sugar substitute.
I remember another catastrophe that some of today’s alarmists staked their reputation on at the time: The population bomb. Paul Ehrlich predicted ‘hundreds of million people dying in the streets’ in the 80’s and 90’s if growth in population was not reined in. He was egregiously, stupefying wrong. Yet today he is pushing global warming and no one in the media calls him to task for his demonstrated idiocy. Being a liberal means never having to say you’re sorry.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Love it and we do need a like button!
and we’ve been stricken by the worst strain!
Shown to cause cancer in lab rats. To equal the dosage the rats received, a human being would have to consume 800 cans of soda a day for a year.
Does that mean next winter will be worse than this one?
We can’t even begin to imagine how bad it can get...
