    Don’t worry, they’ll come around…just as soon as they can figure out away to blame Global Climate Change on Obama.
    Until then, they will continue to think of it as harley credible

    Man caused climate change is a lie. Warmists/clamatists are traitors to the human race.

    Worse than that, they’re herry-tic ay-thee-yists.
    “Jeebus? If man caused climate change is NOT a durty lib’rul lie..part mah swimmin’ pool NOW!”
    That’s how we’uns know.

    Reference must be to Eric Ericson: “Folks, I do not care. Let me assure you that the world is not going to end and we are not going to cause ourselves to go extinct. This report is written by a bunch of people who believe in the evolution of humanity, but somehow think mankind is unable to adapt to changing circumstances.”

    I have yet to hear why the polar bears didn’t go extinct during the 4000 year long Holocene Maximum?The warmest period in human history.

    denis1112: Largely because they didn’t exist then. On the other hand, where are the cave bears which did?

    This is actually a good idea. Let’s start spreading the rumor that climate change is something the “liberals” started, and in fifteen minutes flat the right wing moonbats will be all on board.

    The so called climate scientists have a huge credibility problem. The chicken little approach is not science. It does, however, fit into the uninformed liberal mentality, hence its popularity in that circle.

    What benefit do people who “lie” about climate change get? That’s what I don’t understand about the deniers who accuse people who understand the science of … something evil.

    Is it just that we’re bad people and want to harm others?

    It’s like the Underpants Gnomes in South Park. Step 1: Steal Underpants. Step 2: (silence). Step 3: PROFIT!

    What’s really funny about that comment is that climate change folks DO believe we can adapt to changing circumstances. We believe that we can adapt our actions to reduce the harm that global climate change will do to humans.

    Deniers are missing the point so blatantly that it has to be psychosis: We built our cities and civilizations based on where the climate was best for it, and if the climate shifts then at best it will be annoying but at worst it could force us to have to move and rebuild or die.

    That’s REALLY expensive, and can harm economies and cultures. Imagine if Florida loses 100 feet of shoreline — what’s the cost to tourism in America, to the entire economy of the South, to all the people who own land on the shores. And 100 feet is likely!

    Climate change folks are looking for us to adapt, not denying that we can.

    That’s because you haven’t looked. This is the first link on Google for “Holocene Maximum Polar Bears.”

    Your ignorance is not evidence that something doesn’t exist.

    No, the chicken little approach is not science.

    But the evidence-based, peer-reviewed studies are and they say that if we don’t get our asses in gear we may lose our asses.

    Who cares about “deniers”, really? Adopt the technology, make it profitable for both the user and manufacturer and let’s move forward.

    Sometimes I think people prefer the political posturing as opposed to the solution.
