Oh well. We aren't going to control the climate.

It will just get worse as my snowball effect is taking place at a faster and faster rate as the planet heats up.

An Idiocracy indeed.
It might have something to do with the fact that the US is only about 15% of the world's greenhouse emissions. We could drop to 0 emissions tomorrow and wouldn't even begin to make a dent in anything except literally bankrupting the country.

How come last winter, when we had record cold temps, it was just weather then and not "climate"?

Summer is when AGW whack jobs come out of hibernation.

The AGW loons completely ignore this.

If the US cut CO2 emissions to ZERO, it would make no difference whatsoever.

Obsessing over "remedies" to AGW is like a lunatic swatting at imaginary flies buzzing around his head. Lots of action- little results.

Al Gore can assure you that this summer was the hottest ever in the history of the 4.5 billion years of Earth's existence!

A real shame the United States can't save the world's climate change problem.

According to the positive feedback theory, alll that CO2 and heat would have caused more CO2 and heat. We wouldn't have had glacial periods between then and now.

FAIL!!!
