    There is no such thing as man made global warming and the climate has always changed. These people are scammers no differnent from those of the 70′s preaching death and destruction but actually selling central planning and socialism. We need to attack these fools head on with facts. http://heartland.org/

    Yeah! And the Earth is flat, too!

    Take a look at those that fund Heartland Institute – Koch Foundation, Exxon Mobil, Phillip Morris, Altria, Reynolds American, Glaxo Smith Kline, Pfizer, Eli Lilly, and Walton Family Foundation to name a few. It’s also worth noting, in the 1990s, the Heartland Institute worked with Philip Morris to question the link between secondhand smoke and health risks. Philip Morris used Heartland to distribute tobacco-industry material, and arranged for the Heartland Institute to publish policy studies which summarized Philip Morris reports.

    Denial is not just a river in Egypt, Ben Dover.

    I have a simple suggestion for those that believe they will be flooded out by global warming. They should move farther away from the Shore and sell to those who believe global warming is non-science. In a few years, if Chicken Little is right, they will once again be living on the beach. If they are wrong, then perhaps the new owners will grant them permission to swim on their old beach for old time sake. Or, if they have invested the proceeds wisely, they can simply buy back the old homestead at our inflated capitalistic prices.

    How much money do the people writing the climate change report get to study climate change? Many careers are invested in their being climate change. There are plenty of organizations profiting from climate change that donate to those that wrote the report.

    Insult me if it makes you feel good, but I am not ready to assume 110 years with of data crunched by a select biased group is conclusive. Science is not always as exact as you would like it to be. Just because someone wears a white jacket does not mean they are always right. Modern scientific theory is trendy and subject to group think.

    Even your insults, “flat earth”, are not original and just copy an opinion you are trained to believe.

    The earth may or may not be going through a period of change.

    Considering that we can’t forecast the number of hurricanes much less what the weather is going to be next week, those that say it is happening and also that man is to blame tend to lose credibility as to what is going to happen and why.

    Its kind of crazy to think that not only are we to blame but that we can also fix the problem.
    If the climate is going to change, then it will happen and there isn’t much to do but adjust and move on. In the 17th century I believe, the earth entered into a mini ice age. Even with primitive technology and in many instances, a backward view emerged that essentially said that the world was going to end because of God’s displeasure with the sinful ways of man.

    This sounds eerily similar to what you hear now about how if we don’t change NOW, then the world will again be in peril, only its not the church, but secular scientists who carry the water in this debate and not priests.

    Man isn’t the first and only creature on earth. The earth survived before us and it’ll survive long after us until our sun goes dim.

    Lets focus on getting along peacefully while thanking God that He graced us to allow us this little slice of heaven.

    I think all those people who are really concerned about this issue should sell their waterfront properties cheap before the water rises and move to higher ground.

    Yeah they are’nt saying that are they? But we should all ride around on bikes, live in huts, pay more for electric/gas/food/etc, and stop advancement and progress to keep the earth from warming …. oh I mean “changing” beacause they had to stop the warming tag line when the earth stopped warming & ice packs started to grow again. By the way – that is called a cycle folks.

    Progress has made our air, water, and communities the cleanest they have ever been. I say keep the advancements coming and we will be good – listen to the global warming alarmists and our life styles will move dramaitcally backwards.
