How about "CO2 Holocaust?" What I love now is that no matter what the weather news, it can be blamed on something the left wants to blame. Cooler than normal....must be caused by us. Hotter than normal, also manmade. More storms...same. Drought....all due to carbon emissions. I bet healthcare is also somehow carbon emissions related.

It's a really "convenient truth" when you don't have to prove your assertion, you just modify the hypothesis to match your hysteria.

Just the typical fearmongering from the left

The fact of the matter is that the earth goes through these heating and cooling cycles naturally. We could give up every industry and all live in grass huts using no energy and emitting no pollutants and we would still go through this cycle.

The left just wants the power and to get in our pockets even more

Been there, done that.... Hansen from NASA has compared the coal trains to the holocaust trains during WW2:

Quote:
Climate, Coal and Crematoria - Dot Earth Blog - NYTimes.com

“Coal will determine whether we continue to increase climate change or slow the human impact. Increased fossil fuel CO2 in the air today, compared to the pre-industrial atmosphere, is due 50% to coal, 35% to oil and 15% to gas. As oil resources peak, coal will determine future CO2 levels. Recently, after giving a high school commencement talk in my hometown, Denison, Iowa, I drove from Denison to Dunlap, where my parents are buried. For most of 20 miles there were trains parked, engine to caboose, half of the cars being filled with coal. If we cannot stop the building of more coal-fired power plants, those coal trains will be death trains – no less gruesome than if they were boxcars headed to crematoria, loaded with uncountable irreplaceable species.”
