i'm confused. i thought she rejected any research or opinion from anyone but ph.d-level climatologists, yet now the claim is that the work and opinions of a senior scientist in climate studies at NASA with a ph.d in meteorology is mysteriously discarded because he was noticed by rush limbaugh

Nice try. But weak.

Aren't you going to send those folks an email??? I mean, seriously, if they all have only "half a brain," then they desperately need your secret information so that they can be disabused of their errors.

Yeah, no.

how many of those lost species are due to habitat destruction vs. 'climate change'? do you know?

BP, the largest oil company in the UK and one of the largest in the world, has this opinion:
There is an increasing consensus that climate change is linked to the consumption of carbon based fuels and that action is required now to avoid further increases in carbon emissions as the global demand for energy increases.
Shell Oil (yes, as in oil, the fossil fuel) says:
Shell shares the widespread concern that the emission of greenhouse gases from human activities is leading to changes in the global climate.
Eighteen CEOs of Canada's largest corporations had this to say in an open letter to the Prime Minister of Canada:
Our organizations accept that a strong response is required to the strengthening evidence in the scientific assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). We accept the IPCC consensus that climate change raises the risk of severe consequences for human health and security and the environment. We note that Canada is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
Have the environazis seized the reigns of industrial power, in addition to infiltrating the U.N., the science academies of every developed nation, and the top research institutes of North America? That just doesn't seem very likely.
wait a sec. why did AGW proponent rkb0305 say:

Yeah, no.
if you can show me evidence that they're having a shrieking alarmist fit even remotely like the one you just had, and claim that the planet is dying? heck yes, i will definitely send them an email.
please post their meltdowns and email addresses here for our viewing and emailing enjoyment.

If you have doubts about global warming because there's not definitive proof, then you must not believe in God. If you do, then you're not being consistent.

Yeah, that EPA scientist? An economist.

Try again. Nice touch--the condescending tone. Unfortunately, it can't save you from the facts.

So how about that email, eh? You gonna' send it? Seriously, I'm sure they'd appreciate knowing the error of their half-brained ways.

Thats a great point.

The "Christian" conservatives who reject science in favor of faith based beliefs.

I'd rep u if I could.

Atheist. I believe in science.

I will admit that I've been a skeptic of global warming, but at the same time, I sucked at science classes, so I don't trust my own opinion very much.

LMAO. "Shrieking alarmist fit." Looks to me, rather, that you're the one beginning to be a little alarmed: you're anxiously trying to deflect the topic, since you can't really respond that ALL of those organizations and researchers are simply wrong and "half-brained" without looking like an idiot.
