    Why put one’s ignorance on public display? Payne should stick to his bumper stickers.

    If you can’t make a point with the truth, what difference? You’re talking about science to a group that honestly believes Bush (A) was articulate and (B) didn’t use a teleprompter
    You’d have to be more careful with your facts in a roomful of labrador retrievers than you do with the true believing mouth breathers you’ve assembled, Henry.

    The only way to reduce CO emissions enough to turn around global warming is to have less people on the planet. The easiest way to reduce the population is through war, famine and disease. Nations are already working on this.

    You haven’t watched Bush speak, have you? He all too often flubbed it, mispronounced words, or talked down to the audience. When he did get it right, he looked too proud of himself.

    As for the teleprompter crack, every President has used it since it was invented. Why do people suddenly care that Obama uses one?

    Most reputable scientists agree human activity is affecting climate. One can argue about the scale of the effects since our climate models are imperfect but clearly we are warming the planet. To simply deny the whole thing is no longer reasonable. It is the modern version of a Luddite.

    Henry – When citing warmer and colder references along with the month please include latitude and longitude.

    97 to 3 the scientists say ‘Climate Change.’ 99 to 1 the RepubliCons and Anarchists say ‘the hell with it.’
    Hell it is then.

    Two possibilities: 1. Payne really is that ignorant; 2. Payne isn’t that ignorant but he’s willing to tell lies for money. Which is it?

    I understood the old argument Mr. Payne recycles on a regular basis: it gets cold in winter. Therefore there is no global warming. I get it. Funny, and more funny each time it’s presented.

    But this is a new approach. “April is warmer than January.” How does that prove there’s no global warming? Well, I’m sure that it does prove that climatologists are all incorrect. And more importantly, it’s one more reason to disbelieve anything Mr. Obama says. Maybe the cause-and-effect of the ‘toon is over my head. Or maybe Mr. Payne will use any construct, no matter how flimsy, no matter whether it’s at all applicable, to try to make Mr. Obama look wrong.

    Bush couldn’t do more than three sentences without tripping over his tongue. There was not a book of “Bushisms” published without a lot of raw material.

    “The same alarmists claimed the impending new ice age was “proven fact” 40 years ago, and the same alarmists have now been claiming disaster in 10-12 years for over 20 years now.”
    So much easier to say things when you just make them up than when you actually provide proof.

    We actually had January days warmer than April, and it’s been happening for a decade now, and when you depend on snowfall, for many things, that is NOT good!! The west is warmer drought, and it isn’t over.

    The Lysenko episode of Soviet science is weird and awful, but it’s a Procrustean stretch to compare it to the present situation. What pogroms in regard to what disproof?

    You say, “The first fails basic biology or just lies about how all organic lifeforms do with carbon”. Could you please explain what you mean? What does it mean to say that this book lies about how all organic lifeforms do with carbon? Do what?
