Liberals start yelling that the paper cannot be trusted because Foxnews reported on it.

sigh
Uh, no.

Who cares what the public thinks? They are not climate scientists. The study is irrelevant to scientific fact.

The conservative mind at work, believe everything you are told from Fox News.

While those types of rubes are quite prevalent, there are others who make a far more cogent argument using junk science and who only appear on threads on climate change.

Kinda makes one wonder what interests they are here to represent......
The issue is so politicized that some cannot look at it without bias...

Perhaps not from a month with an R in it?

2009 IS recent.

The Earth will do fine with or without humans.

The Earth laughs at man's vanity.

So.....Have you changed you mind and no longer deny that the climate is warming?....Warming will not wipe out humans, but if it is rapid it will wipe out many creatures who will not have time enough to adapt...Evolution take time.

It doesn't matter; Global Warming is a political movement.

No, it's not, but like everything else in your country is has become politicized...Your political system is so partisan that it is almost impossible to get anything done...Even the members of the opposing parties seem to have lost the ability to think for themselves, so they just tow the party line, so much so that I can tell just by their posts which party they favor...It is almost like a religion, in that some are willfully blind to facts, particularly when it is contrary to the party dogma....You for instance, I'd put down as a staunch conservative.

I imagine Canada would label this hate speech.

I always ask myself "What would Gordie or the great Phil Esposito do?"

Either way the OP is absurd. It is about as indicative of the existence of ACC as a quiz on Holmesian expressions is indicative of legal knowledge.
lol everybody knows Wikipedia is the largest liberal biased source of disinformation on the web.
