A better question would be why those who believe the majority of scientists on the subject are 'liberal' whereas those who believe the minority of scientists are 'conservative'?

you're a idiot if you believe that 1 summer of bad weather = global warming.

God damned sheep.

So you honestly don't see the weather patterns changing? Not just now but in the past?

Climate change has been going on since the earth was formed...you'd be an imbecile to not believe in it. As for what impact humans have had...that's up for debate to me.

so what caused the tornadoes/floods/hurricanes that occurred 100 years ago? 250? 1000? Were those all a pre-emptive "fuck you" from mother nature?

It's a bunch of storms, whoop de do.

Yeah probably. but what is there to do about it? I probably have a smaller "carbon footprint" that any of you yokels without even trying hard.

I try to waste as many resources as possible. That way humans will evolve faster out of necessity...

Ahhh, it's nice to see another poster that subscribes to my anti-Rogodin policies.

I like the way you think.

Yes, humanity has screwed up the climate, but nature will take over and correct this. Yes, obviously it won't be during our lifetime, but it will happen.

The climate on our planet has cycles. Weather, good or bad, depending on your vantage point, is in a constant state of change. Why, if we are in fact warming up, has the last two years of Hurricanes been so mild. They thrive on warm water.

So how long does el nino last anyway? Is it permanent this time? I don't know about anywhere else, but things have been getting slowly warmer around here for a couple of decades now.

Edit: Probably before that too, but I've only been alive long enough to remember the last 20.

EDIT:

:Q

Not sure what was going on there...

Anyway, it's clearly complicated, and one 'bout of hot/odd/stormy weather doesn't make it so.

I haven't seen anything that hasn't been soundly debunked that suggests the CO2/temp link isn't on the surface a sensible one, however...

Al Gore sent him an email telling him to Preach the Good News! He's just doing what he is told. :)
