    If they're incapable of explaining it properly what do they expect ?

    The Guradian's now talking about Antarctica melting,
    http://environment.guardian.co.uk/climatechange/story/0,,2016243,00.html

    yet even Greenland's pretty much untouched ! Indeed some say the ice is getting
    thicker because there's more water vapour around to create precipitation. Ditto
    Antarctica.

    If the Arctic ice melts it's not going to raise sea level as much as an *inch* !
    If AGWists scream "Wolf" ad nauseam and nothing happens whose fault is it if
    they make their case look stupid ?

    How about considering the positive aspects of a warmer climate. It looks good to
    me. No heating on here right now for example. That'll reduce my carbon emissions
    for starters. Longer growing seasons etc.....

    Shorter Skiing season, which sucks

    That doesn't worry me. I've always been convinced I'd break something if I went
    skiing.

  5. I was looking at an online science seminar, but the main speaker asked
    the journalist audience, of 150, "how many had a science degree?"

    Three did. Maybe thats why GW is badly represented in the press, the
    press can't understand it!

    Absolutely captivating. Didn't stop watching from the start.
    Flipped my mindset and viewpoint. Thank you.

    I still think we need big Chlorine scrubbing dirigibles at the South
    Pole, but I do not think that we are in some serious trouble any
    longer, and what is going on in Africa is appalling. Again, thank you
    for that.

    Weird how it said that there was only one viewing! I can't believe
    I am the only one that has watched it! Can't be true.

    PS Your sig signifier doesn't work. Off to enjoy my Earl Grey...

    Read the comments. The very first one talked about how volcanoes
    "only represent 1% of HUMAN contribution to global warming"

    Bwuahahahahah... I was unaware that we make volcanoes fart!

    Go to Saudi Arabia and ski indoors!

    I'd rather water ski.

    It doesn't trouble you that the scientist who first espoused global
    warming has reversed his opinion.

    As for a "real tomato", you apparently don't know how to shop. I can
    buy "legacy tomatoes" at just about every grocery in Phoenix.

    Build greenhouses like they do in Ohio, dipshit!

    We have 5 inch diameter beefsteaks that are luscious!

    No. The propaganda is saying that science is saying it is real.
    Watch the flic, and see that REAL scientists are saying that it is not
    real, and have the proofs.

    Tell that to impoverished South Africans that have no electricity
    because of retarded twits like you.

    Should we industrialized nations be the only ones with electrical
    power?

    Why aren't you getting by without using it? Hmmmm?

    You're a Hypocrite!

    Lemmie guess... you don't think the oceans produce CO2?

    Watch the flic, dipshit.

    Well, contribute by killing yourself then!

    If all you "too late" retards did that, the "problem" would be 100%
    solved!

    Basically, if it is too late, retards like you won't be able to do
    anything about it, and if you all off yourselves, the rest of us won't
    care. Either way, the "problem" needs no attention.

    So... DO IT, BOY! Go find a rope!

    We can already see the "positive" aspects of a warmer climate here
    (Southeastern US). Crops that once flourished untouched by insects
    are virtually impossible to grow because the lack of a hard freeze
    leaves the mold and insect larva intact from season to season. I, for
    one, would like a real tomato, not those little cherry thingees, or
    that tasteless crap that Florida exports. Haven't seen a real tomato
    in close to 10 years now.

    Where one stands on global warming is largely a matter of personal
    bias or financial bias. The science is saying it is real, and likely
    to have very unpleasant consequences.

    Ignoring the situation may make you feel better - but when you
    consider what is at stake wouldn't it make more sense to err on the
    side of caution? Not for you - for those that might want to enjoy the
    world you and I leave them.

    The only thing I'm confident of is that the "cure" government/industry
    impose on the global warming problem - will be just as damaging, or
    more damaging, than the problem itself - while being financially
    rewarding the corporations that provide the cures.

    Personally, I don't think the world is ready to make the sacrifices it
    will take to save the planet, and it may be too late now.

    I found that quite telling. You are talking about the co-founder of
    Greenpeace, right? Very telling! He said that it is specifically
    political propaganda. Clamoring for a piece of the $2B allotment...

    Arizona has enough brains to build greenhouses OR they don't have the
    same mold/larva issues.
