    Since President Trump has declared climate change to be a hoax, property insurers and reinsurers should be prohibited from raising rates to cover weather related catastrophie losses.

      Wrong. The issue is ‘human influence being significant’, not simply ‘change’. Got it?

        Climate change is not just about hurricanes in the USA. You know that, right?

        How many SIGNIFICANT hurricanes has the entire planet experienced since Katrina?

        How many months since 2005 has the USA and the planet broken record high monthly temperatures?

        How many years since 2005 has the USA and the planet broken record high yearly temperatures?

        {Johnny Carson voice}No, I did not know that!(sarcasm)
        Not a significant number of them.
        Not a significant number of them.
        Not a significant number of them.

        Got any more softball pitch questions?

          Referencing the last question I asked of you – are you REALLY trying to argue that 10 out of 12 is “not a significant number” to you?

          Do you even math at all, bro?

          re-direct your lame questions at someone gullible enough to play your word parsing games and rabbit hole treks.

    I can understand why you guys support global warming. Any insurance to protect individuals and organizations from global warming is a no brainer, those policies will never be paid off, because global warming, massive sea level rise, etc. is never going to happen.

    I have been very concerned about the threat the AGW (human-caused catastrophic global warming) “scientific consensus” poses for our nation’s socioeconomic health. As a response to this potential threat I have written a major paper titled:

    “History and Ignorance of “Sky Is Falling” Theories with Special Emphasis on Anthropogenic Global Warming”

    Here is a link to the paper. If you read it and believe it has value, please pass the link on to others.

      I’ll read the paper, but I’d like to know if it has been peer reviewed and/or submitted to any journal for review and possible publication.

      Brad, thank you for summarily handing the Progressive Global Warming/Climate Change people their collective heads once again. They have been thoroughly brain washed into believing Al Gore since he started spouting off years ago. By the way, his prediction that the Polar Ice Cap would be gone by 2014 didn’t exactly come true, did it? Recently, we had a whistleblower testify that the so called 97% of scientists had been submitting false data to support their agenda. They are all Fakes!

      Brad – after reading your paper, I am certain it was not peer reviewed nor submitted to any journal for review and potential publication. I am more than happy to discuss your conjecture-filled article on this forum if you would like, but I’ll leave any further discussion up to you. If you post a reply to me on this thread, I will post a more detailed response about your link.

        The guy is a video game producer with no qualifications in climate science, and his degree is in futurology,or in other words, a perfect source for Agent, Yogitard, and the other crazies.

          Two “i”s in Busiiness in the link is the clue this is a HOAX, but not as big a HOAX as Man-influenced Climate Change.

          I suspect it was an alternate ID of a Libbitteral, trying to find the identity of Conservatives by capturing their IP addy.

          Reported to IJ.

          I think I’ll use the printout of the subject link paper as kindling for a camp fire that will generate unnecessary carbon emissions.

      @Rosenblatt; I’ll pe.. bear review it and let you know what I think.

      My guess; it’ll prove what sensible people knew all along.

        I would be interested in reading your thoughts on the article. Rest assured, the link is not bringing you to an adult website.

          I prefer to listen to Adele’s ‘Sky Fall’ to clicking the link to a ‘human interactions’ website.

          Please summarize the article and I’ll comment here, later.

            No. If you were sincere about posting what YOU think of the article, you would take the time to read it yourself and not ask for another person’s summary.

            IMO, it’s a phishing scam, to collect IP addy’s.

            That means I won’t be opening that phishing link.

      Why are there TWO “i”s in “Busiiness” in the link?

      Porn site fake link?

    Once again, a NEW screen name appears to post a phishing link… and derails the ongoing conversation.
