    When the Ohio Governor find out this came from his State University the funding will dry up.

    this is further proof there is obviously a vast, left wing conspiracy
    making all this data up.
    I still contend the earth is flat and the sun revolves around it.

      Oddly enough more believable than the idea that we can control the world’s climate and maintain some kind of permanent stasis…

    My eco-friendly faith community has been called out previously by a poster to IJ as a “false religion.”

    One poster referred to recycling efforts as a “nice philosophy.”

    It seems like an uphill battle sometimes to try to get people concerned enough about the environment to take steps to alleviate the massive destruction caused by pollution.

      What exactly is this “Eco-friendly faith community,” I think that might need a little bit of explanation.

    “In our model simulations it looks like all the feedbacks tend to point toward it actually accelerating over time; there’s no real stabilizing mechanism we can see.”

    And I remember in 2009 when Joe Biden among others testified before congress that the polar ice caps would be completely gone by 2013. Turned out they had the biggest ice gain in the past 11 years in 2013.

      By all means then: “Don’t give a hoot. Go ahead and pollute.”

        Clearly if I think that liars of the highest order (politicians) have been vastly overstating the direness of the situation of “climate change” that means I am on a one man mission to destroy the environment. Never could a conservative be a conserv-ationist…

        Every time you thumbs down a post of mine I empty an aerosol can for kicks.

    What does NASA know any how? Not near as much as the Koch Bros and Exxon Mobil, that’s for certain. Dumb rocket scientists and their cold hard facts! Or, in this case, cold melting, softening facts.

      I’m curious, instead of telling your kids about eh boogey-man do you just regale them with horror stories involving the Koch brothers as some kind of marauding enviro-monsters?

    This is all too bad. One city in CA stated it would take them 10 years to get the permits to open up their salt filtering plant as well as to get it operational again to start pumping water from the ocean to offset their drought. Of course the first part was to get the town counsel to agree that they should.

      That’s California for you though, definition of liberalism gone awry. A massive bureaucracy of red tape and kickbacks.

        Then stay in Wisconsin. You wouldn’t fit in in California anyway. Those people are too happy.
