So most believe in global warming but do not see it as a serious threat. Are they still 'deniers'?

Right now, most Americans see the District of Corruption as the most serious threat to America. They are stealing money from people out in the states and investing it all in that sewer up there.

sometimes it is global warming, sometimes cooling. The climate has been constantly changing since creation. It has never stayed the same. Mankind plays a very insignificant role, if any, in whatever it is doing.

Understand the plan is to pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store the carbon dioxide underground. All plants, flowers and trees will suffer. Plants, flowers and trees generate oxygen for living creatures to breath while storing carbon dioxide. Should the globull warming crowd have their way; all life on the planet suffers. In actuality this does seem to be the plan to cause all life to suffer on the planet. And the plants refuse to grow and oxygen is not made. Birds refuse to sing. Humans gasp for oxygen. Yes it is that serious should globull warming or climate change idiots win. The un of nations control is to head up the program. Everyone, in the civilized world, can trust the un of nations.

Do you think it has finally dawned on people that ‘climate change’ means a lower life style level?
they mean for you to be uncomfortable. Too hot, too cold, hungry? Good. Note, they will make no such sacrifice.

As they see their gasoline prices sticky downward and FINALLY see through the media shill BS, doing the math and knowing that 42 gallons per barrel at over $100 a barrel means $2.50 crude costs (including the cracking into usable fuel), and 53 cents are added for the federal retail excise, and whatever other federal taxes are in there, plus the state excise taxes (which vary), they realize that they could be paying at least $2 less per gallon if the Demgogic Party 1 percenters in Congress had rescinded the federal taxes on fuel, and if Kenyan born a-hole would have okayed the Keystone XL pipeline a couple of years ago. Thanks Lorianne.

And exactly how much CO2 needs to be stored underground to prevent any more warming? What temperatures would they consider as “normal”?

This is what you can carry the argument to with these idiots.

Seeing as the amount of CO2 that man creates, as a percent of effective greenhouse gases is about 0.117% - I’m guessing we shouldn’t worry too much about it.

It is a pity for certain. Corn is a mainstay for consumption by people and animals to keep hunger away. Yes, I believe Jr. Johnson, of NASCAR, has the truth of the matter where he said, ‘Corn is good for two things; Drinking and eating.’ Besides who wants to drive a drunk car?

Once they have authority to store CO2/ underground they have control of more of the food chain and oxygen levels. No win (imho) for animals or humans.

The article has a breakdown of views by party affiliation and of course they are diametrically opposed. To be honest I don’t follow the science super closely because to me the issue is almost totally explained in the realm of ideology. Leftists love global warming because it gives an excuse to empower government, control business, and redistribute wealth. Plus it provides a massive crisis around which people can be rallied to collectively action. Leftists crave that feeling of unity of purpose. Global warming fits all the leftist receptor cites so perfectly that if it didn’t exist, they would have had to invent it, and so they have.

I personally believe Global Warming is a HUGE threat...to our liberty and freedom, to our wealth, to our standard of living, to our mobility, to our freedom of association, to our very lives due to government overreach. There’s nothing the government won’t do to enslave us in the name of “global warming.”

The last time there was a prolonged period of global warming, the vikings stopped pillaging Europe and started settling Iceland, Greenland and Vinland.

Vinland is modern day Newfoundland and was so named because the climate was well-suited for growing grapes and vineyards.

Global warming is not something to fear, it is something to hope for. Unfortunately, it looks like the brief warming trend which we enjoyed in the 1990s is over.

global warming is a hoax democrats create to grow socialism and enslave us

If you made $100,000 per year after taxes then you could buy anything you could ever need in the free market because someone would produce it for money( look at the millions of products for sale on Google , internet , ebay , amazon,Walmart, Dollar Tree etc etc). So we don’t need government for ANYTHING. A private company created a whole city DISNEY WORLD in Florida. So democrats create fake crisis like “global warming”,”no health insurance crisis” to justify the very existence of government and the continued growth of government(socialism)

government is the enemy and the problem. the news media and democrat party are also the enemy and the problem

I’m proud to be a climate denier : come and get me you communist Obama and communist democrats
