That's a common myth- educated people knew for centuries before Columbus that the world wasn't flat.

You're telling me an organization actually named themselves after a misconception that could have been cleared up with a 3 minute google search?

People believe all sorts of ridiculous things, almost half of Americans believe in creation over evolution..Many believe in an earth that was created less than 10,000 years ago...I won't even get into talking snakes and such.

That's just it, we don't really understand all the complexities of this planet yet.

I've read that scientists do not yet understand El Nino and La Nina, we have no way of determining which of those two events will manifest itself. All we can do is monitor the ocean to see which one is created, and then witness the results.

Scientists do not understand the mechanics of the Arctic Ocean, and yet there too, they use any indications of warming in the Arctic as more proof that man-induced CO2 is responsible. Is man-induced CO2 is responsible for affecting the rate at which sea ice forms in the Arctic? Is CO2 responsible for lowering the albedo of the Arctic Ocean, or increasing it for the Antarctic?

The one thing I know for sure is that the proposals made by the Goreists will accomplish nothing except ship jobs to India and China and make Al richer.

Those policies will also pour our money into the coffers of every tin pot dictator, in the form of reparations for climate justice.

Just go blow up some asteroids, or something.

If Congress won't give you the money, just buy and play "asteroids" on your old computer.

Feel free to continue ignoring science, the world will gladly move on without you.

It would behoove you to actually do some research on WHY Antarctic sea ice is growing. The answer may surprise you.
Next time, do some reading before throwing nonsense out there. Otherwise, it makes you look foolish.

A new look at NASA satellite data revealed that Earth set a new record for coldest temperature recorded. It happened in August 2010 when it hit -135.8 degrees. Then on July 31 of this year, it came close again: -135.3 degrees.

Cold dis-comfort: Antarctica set record of -135.8
Wouldn't want to bother looking at the entire picture now, would ya?

Antarctica is a “canary in the coal mine” when and only when alarmists say it is.

That would be the Arctic, not the Antarctic, but thanks for playing.
