I don't care if the earth is warming or cooling or staying the same any fool who thinks man is the cause just has no sense and is nothing but a brainwashed commie.

The earth was once a tropical oasis. It was also more then once an ice world like Hoth. Long before factories were built.

Really, the same people who believe this global warming is a hoax nonsense are pretty much the same people who believe that evolution is a myth nonsense. It's anti-science, anti-intellectualism bull****.
Dude, you lost ANY credit you may have had with that statement... HAAHAHHAHAHAHHHA

the hard left DENYs the fact that there have been MANY cooling and warmings thoughout history: there have been five MAJOR ice ages. The last ice age is still going on, it started about 1.5 million years ago. What people call "the last ice age" is just the last glacial maxima, right now we're in a glacial minima, either way we're still in an ice age. The current ice age is called the quaternary glaciation. The one before it is called the carboniferous/permian glaciation it occured about 300 million years ago. About 450 mya another ice age occured it is called the ordovician-silurian glaciation, and still another occured called the neoproterozoic ice age and it occured between 800-600 mya. The first ice age occured about 2 billion years ago, and it is called the paleoproterozoic ice age.


WHY DOES denys the fact of the VOLCANIC activity in the artic could be causing the melting of the ice cap????

why does the left deny the FACT that the magnetic pole switch, which can effect global temps too:
The Earth has several poles, not just two. It has geographic north and south poles, which are the points that mark the Earth's axis of rotation. It also has magnetic north and south poles, based on the planet's magnetic field. When you use a compass, it points to the magnetic north pole, not the geographic North Pole. The Earth's magnetic poles move. The magnetic North Pole moves in loops of up to 50 miles (80 km) per day. But its actual location, an average of all these loops, is also moving at around 25 miles a year [ref]. In the last 150 years, the pole has wandered a total of about 685 miles (1102 kilometers). The magnetic South Pole moves in a similar fashion. The last time the poles switched was 780,000 years ago, and it's happened about 400 times in 330 million years.
The total magnetic strength of the Earth has been decreasing VERY slowly through my 56+ year life. Scientists aren't sure how long a complete polarity shift takes, but it can be as long as 3000 years or longer. Scientists also do not know whether the magnetic field goes to zero before the polarity shifts. I doubt that it does go to 0, because, if it did go to 0, there would be no magnetic field deflecting cosmic rays and alpha radiation away from the Earth, so more things would die at a faster rate than normal, yet there is no correlation of magnetic polarity reversals with extinctions. The magnetic polarity reversal record goes back only 180 million years, so the end of the Cretaceous period and the beginning of the Tertiary is covered, and so are the last four advances of the glaciers Pliocene and Pleistocene (Quaternary period) geological stages.


yet the left want you to BELIEVE that 'global warming' is a man-made thing....

How is global warming specific to this country when it's...uhm....global?

How is global warming curtailed if the other big economic players, China, India, and Mexico, countries that I can assure you, have no sort of environmental protection practices whatsoever, don't agree to reduce their carbon footprints?

Do you think the jobs that will be lost here due to the higher cost of doing and running business just vanish in the air?

And when those displaced jobs are now going to countries who are not buying into the global warming, then how does that exactly stall global warming?

And how does that benefit this country?

I have more questions for you once you've provided the answers to these.

Global warming can cause global cooling. Thats what happens when tens of thousands of tons of ice melt off in to the ocean.

So are you insinuating that man has no affect on the environment of the planet or just not on the climate? Just wondering.

How can the right deny man is, at very least, contributing to global warming? The research on greenhouse gases is hardcore fact. The only thing left to figure out is how much man is contributing to this.

The fact that many on the right continue to deny that man has nothing to do with this is just laughably ignorant. Even your god, Dubbya, acknowledged that global warming is real, and man is likely contributing greatly to it.

ummmm. nobody is saying that mans activities are in no way contributing to CO2 in the atmosphere.
