All "Wars On (insert bad thing here)" have always been a failure.

I'd bet the GOPs "War on science" also ends up being a big flop too. Unfortunately stupid, in this case, can end up hurting more than just those who adhere to such buffonary.

Yea, there's no proof the planet is getting warmer.

Here's your sign.

The Dumbing Down rolls on, stronger than ever. No doubt it is fueled (literally and figuratively) by conservatives.

if oyu guys can come up with 100% irrefutable proof that man is causing the current round of climate change, i will jump on the bandwagon. however since i know that you CANT come up with the proof, other than the globe is warming, i will continue to refute the assertion that man is causing the problem, assuming that there is a problem to begin with.

This was the 34th consecutive year with global temperatures above the 20th century average. For the contiguous United States alone, the 2010 average annual temperature was above normal, resulting in the 23rd warmest year on record.
