Skip to comments.Deniers of global warming harm us (Global warming deniers bigger danger than holocaust deniers!!!)

AS THE WORLD'S scientists near consensus on human causes of climate change, even Exxon is cutting contributions and distancing itself from the global warming denial industry.
The deniers haven't conceded defeat, and lately have found a substitute for the "sound science" they once demanded. Their new tactic is the drive-by shooting.
The objective is distraction, to be achieved by demeaning the oracles, particularly the "Goreacle," of global warming.

You often see such flawed "logic" put forward by proponents of the humans-caused-the-global-warming scam, but in fact such observations pull the rug out from under their main argument. They have put all of their faith into dire predictions made by scientists, because the scientists' models and predictions portend a dire future.
When they say that climate change is proceeding even faster than even pessimistic scientists predicted a few years ago, they want us to conclude that therefore the situation should be treated with even more urgency than before.
However, a much more rational and intelligent way to interpret such "even greater than predicted" statements is to realize that they reveal the inconvenient truth that those scientists who made the original predictions have proven beyond a doubt the worthlessness of their own predictive powers.
The essence of real science is observing and analyzing a phenomenon, making hypotheses that may explain why the phenomenon occurs, and then devising tests or experiments that can generate unambiguous evidence that either supports or does not support those hypotheses. If the result of an experiment is "the result was much greater than we predicted", that is not a validation of the prediction. Rather, it is the opposite - it reveals that whatever mechanism may have been driving the results, that mechanism is not at all well understood by the person who made the prediction. It shows that the predictor's model or hypothisis is wrong, not that it is right...
Yet know-nothings like the author of this article would have us take the results of failed predictions as an urgent impetus to immediate action.
A single kingdom; who will be king?
Do they count the temperatures for the fires themselves into their “average” temperature? It wouldn’t surprise me.
Ummmm..... Finn...... I hate to mention this little fact, but Argentina, South Africa and Australia are all in the southern hemisphere, thus it’s winter there.
It’s supposed to be cold in July there.
It is written, but first we'll get The Prince. ;-)
You speak the unmitigated TRUTH, oh great King of the Issaquah nation!!!
THAT's a VIOLATION of CHURCH & STATE, right THERE!!! (call the cops!!!)
Would you mind defining this strange word for my aging mind??? (grin)
Funny how they never notice the glaciers that are growing.
Of course, National Geographic says that many glaciers are growing because of global warming.
Thanks for coming out Walt! Couldn’t help but take a good shot at those that needed it...and pinging those in the know!
“A single kingdom; who will be king?”
My Rusian grandfather said that in the valley of the blind, the one-eyed man was king.
Hello my FRiend,
How have you been treating the world?
Am I the only one who sees a disturbing resemblance between the article author’s picture and Michael Moore? Who would have guessed that Moore had a shaven, evil twin?
I’m glad you asked. Throught is an ancient Sanskrit word that really doesn’t have any precise precise in english. The closest we can get is the phase...”Use spell check you moron.”
Hope this hepls
Check it out.
In point of fact the issue is still very much in flux scientifically, which is one reason the eco-zealots are starting to hedge their bets by moving the party line from "global warming" to "climate change." When your Global Warming conference is postponed for snow you end up looking like the idiot you probably are; when you can fall back on "climate change" it tends to help you evade the obvious questions, at least for awhile.
It lasts until somebody has the courage to point out that climates do change; otherwise we'd still be growing wheat in Algeria and wine grapes in England. What is ironic is the plaintive insistence that it is the mean old capitalist KKKorporation Exploiters Of The Earth who are responsible for meddling in matters beyond their understanding; in fact, that very same course of action is precisely what the Greens are pushing. End carbon emission? Good luck with that. And if we could it would do what, precisely? Well, we have a computer model here and a computer model there, which bear approximately the same resemblance to the real world as a Super Mario game does to your morning commute.
What is irritating is not that True Believers such as Connelly have bought into the entire thing - stupidity ought to be painful but it isn't. What is irritating is that he preaches a stifling, politically correct orthodoxy that may not be challenged lest the challenger wind up in the lead role in an auto da fé in the name of the Goddess of Tolerance. It's self-parody, really, the cruelest parody of them all.
The writer can do that and get accolades from the orthodoxy because this isn’t about science at all...not one bit. It’s about politics.
we need more facts about this global warming cabal.......Who gets the money and how and from whom?
The liberals are fighting like like death to get global warming done and the loudest screamers are the most crooked so........where is the money ?
Amazing! Why are you changing the subject to something exciting like "Sanskirt?"
Eliminate about 4 Billion humans.
I figure we’re all on the list.
Well, except those in the service industries.
Someones got to serve veggie burgers to the elite surviving inheritors of the Earth.”
Here’s a possible solution to several problems:
LIBERALS - THE NEW WHITE MEAT. Perhaps the basis of a new Madison Avenue ad campaign. After all, it’s called Mad Ave for a reason.
Put a bounty on ‘em to encourage sport hunting of Liberals by those who either won’t eat Long Pig or can’t afford the arm length rubber gloves so essential to the dressing and cleaning of one of those things.
However, we could package it and sell it to China as "back bacon"..
