You can tell a republican statement by the amount of stupid.

@5Cats - Last time you called me a leftie, and now I'm a greenie? I actually *do* think for myself, which is precisely why I'm never going to fit into whatever convenient pigeonhole you want to ascribe to me. And you claim you think for yourself, yet every single post you make on this site is right out of the the republican textbook. I'm not convinced.

As I said, I agree that nuclear energy is a preferable short-term alternative to fossil fuel energy generation. The green attitude to nuclear energy is just as hopelessly reactionary as the right-wing GW denailist stance ... tho at least the green reaction is based on safety concerns rather than a handful of powerful industries concerned about their profits. And biofuel? That's NOT a viable alternative. Biofuel is one of the token measures I mentioned.

I don't know what the answer is, but policy needs to be based on dealing with the problem, not on protecting the profits of the fossil fuel industry.

@artmunki: But the "greenies" HATE Nuclear power! Even though there's enough uranium on Earth to last 1000s of years, and plenty more in the asteroid belt (idk about Mars).
So again I point out: the ONE and only viable, low polution energy source is getting ZERO developement by the "clean energy" people.
Anyone that dogmatic has to be stupid, evil or both, so I reject their fake studies and think for myself.

"move away from fossile fuel"
And HOW exactly does a nation as big as the USA do that? Serious question!
Hint: if ALL the food produced in the USA were converted to biofuel, it would NOT replace the gasoline and diesel used.

@5Cats - yet again you *assume* you know what I'm talking about, then do your best to prove you don't have a clue.
The sort of precautions I'm talking about really just seem like common sense - moving away from polluting, finite and massively subsidised fossil fuel generation, and start seriously trying to develop renewable energy (rather than the pathetic token measures being taken at the moment). That could free every country on the planet from fuel dependancy AND greatly reduce the damage we do to the environment. If it also just happens to reduce the global warming effect ... bonus! And yeah, by all means develop nuclear generation in the meantime, but in case you hadn't realised, that relies on finite resources too. We're using up our natural resources as if we're desperate to get to the end - surely it's just common sense to try to do something about that before everything's gone.

For anyone who would like to get a taste of the complexity of the science surrounding global warming, the rigor of those scientists studying it, and the simplistic attempts to distort it by the far right, I recommend spending nine minutes watching this.

Bottom line: When the overwhelming majority of scientists in the U.S., Europe, and Japan are telling me something, I tend to think it might be a good idea to listen.

"Even if their were rising sea levels, it wouldn't be as dangerous as a government with increasing power to regulate individuals, which is what many environmentalists keep advocating for."

The sea levels ARE rising. I don't think even most deniers will disagree with that.

The average democrat is a poor man and the average republican is rich.

Yeah, I feel sorry for those poor Democrats like George Soros, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Jeff Immelt, Jay Rockefeller, John Kerry...

Of the richest families in the US, 25% are Republicans and 75% are Democrats.

Also, here are the top bundlers for Obama:
University of California $1,648,685
Goldman Sachs $1,013,091
Harvard University $878,164
Microsoft Corp $852,167
Google Inc $814,540
JPMorgan Chase & Co $808,799
Citigroup Inc $736,771
Time Warner $624,618
Sidley Austin LLP $600,298
Stanford University $595,716
National Amusements Inc $563,798
WilmerHale LLP $550,668
Columbia University $547,852
Skadden, Arps et al $543,539
UBS AG $532,674
IBM Corp $532,372
General Electric $529,855
US Government $513,308
Morgan Stanley $512,232

Now, who's the darling of Wall Street?

@Kain1 that's exactly what the "ClimateGate" e-mails were all about!
These guys: 'peer revied' each other
referenced each other's works before they were even published
conspired to silence any critics
hid their data
faked their data
used data from outside their 'studies' to make the outcome match the AGW theory...

Science? Not!
And now their fraaud IS being exposed, there's a vast majority (outside of their tight clique) who say it's junk.
NONE of their dire predictions are comming true. CO2 continues to rise but the Earth's temperature, ice caps and whatnot remain oblivious!
Meanwhile: vast quantities of cash finds its way into certian studies and certian companies, all of whom SUPPORT AGW's theory. Coincidence?

@Cajun: Completely agree. It's a big problem, but the important thing to note is that most often it's not the serious scientists that spread doomsday predictions, but TV and movies in stead.

It's probably not going to be a doomsday scenario, but it is a serious problem, that needs to be adressed.

@randomxp: If you have a science degree, you should be able to read and understand peer reviewed litterature. Go and do that. You don't need a 22 year old to explain it to you.

There's not that much money in science. Noone in their right mind would become a scientist to become rich. There's no real point in "continuating the myth", and besides, it's much much MUCH easier to scam people on wall street than it is to fake science and still get it through peer review. Fraud in science is always found out eventually, and when it does the hammer falls heavily on those responsible.

"The average democrat is a poor man and the average republican is rich."

What a load of complete bollocks. The average Republican is far from rich. Probably as many Democrats are rich as Republicans. Democrats buy the support of poor people with working people's money - that is why they support policies that keep people poor, they don't want to lose voters.

And yes, I understand climate science. A degree in Earth Sciences from the a world-class university (far better than UEA, but not far away from it) will help in these things.

Not when the people who decide on their grants see their interest in the continuation of the myth.

If this evidence is there, why do we not know of any? I have been asking warmists what this evidence is for three year now, and none of them has been able to tell me.

Kain: Any scientist's theory, discovery, or experiment should be able withstand criticism even from a common person. The doomsday notion of global warming hasn't. The claims have been so grossly exagerrated so much that the AGW crowd has turned from a noble grassroots movement into a big political football.

It's funny how people with practically no understanding of climate science have such firm opinions on Global Warming.

As for the underhanded claims that it's all a big silent conspiracy by the climate scientists, so they can get funding. This is ridiculous. Scientists that make claims they can not back up by solid evidence instantly lose all credibility and the hope of a career in science. Before any article is published, it is reviewed by several other scientists to check if the science is backed sufficiently by evidence.

"If a rich democrat exists its due to hard work."

But the Republicans money was given to them by genies, right? All Republicans are from the same line of rich families! They just pass their money and positions down through birth! The only real Americans are the working class Democrats! All Democrats are hard working citizens! Hard working average Republicans don't exist!! Looks like I'M not the conspiracy theorist after all~

Leesah you not only sound like a conspiracy theorist but you also seem to be confused.

The average democrat is a poor man and the average republican is rich. Google stats if you want. It's all about birth circumstances. If a rich democrat exists its due to hard work.

"You conservatives are all for NASA--except when its planetary scientists are stating facts you dislike?"

NASA is not above releasing information they find most useful to getting funding. If the Dems with all the money say they want records released to infer global warming, the records will be released in a way that infers global warming. That is, in fact, the reason "us conservatives" support privatizing the space industry.

The fact is that the Earth goes through periods of climate change, which have done nothing but shape this planet and the species on it to be exactly what you see today. A not-even-one-degree change in global temperature means nothing (margin of error), and if the Earth is warming then so be it. It's obviously not rising fast enough to be absolutely effected by what humans are doing. I'm all for going green with energy/etc, but this is yet another gross over-exaggeration turned scare tactic by the government/lobbyists and peopl

I'll post a graph that emphatically proves my point as soon as I'm done drawing it with light cycles.
