    The deniers will keep on denying with their last breaths.
    The far “right” never gives up, never backs down and never concedes anything. Their identity is tied up in their warped world view.

    It’s not hard to refute those who don’t think and it takes no effort to say no to the childlike that are led by fantasy.

    I am going to anticipate the usual spate of ignorant global warming deniers: you are wrong, the OVERWHELMING majority of scientists in applicable disciplines have concluded THROUGH DATA that AGW is real, many are posting their data (go to realclimate.org and see for yourself), the science isn’t even very difficult to understand (go to www.ncse.org/climate for an excellent introduction with links), and there are definitely things we can do about it.
    So before you start posting nonsense: better check your sources against real data. That means:
    NOT the Petition Project, which was debunked long ago,
    NO Al Gore references, since he is IRRELEVANT to the scientific debate and always has been
    NO claims that scientists have “forgotten the sun,” “ignored regular cycles,” or "can’t go back more than a century with data: — they haven’t, that’s part of the evidence, and yes they can. Try to consider that a specialist in this field might know at least as much as someone trolling GoComics.com, let alone the ten thousand times more they actually do.
    Any REAL, thoughtful comments, e.g., on what we might try to do (which is admittedly a challenge given the available time) willnbe welcome.

    I sometimes (well, pretty often) worry about things like the unemployment numbers, the national debt, the cost of health care, you know, the usual stuff that gets argued about during political campaigns, but then I remember the Climate Change problem, and I wonder how that factors in to all these other problems. If this Climate Change problem is real (and I see no reason to think otherwise) then we’ve really got a problem, and no matter what we do, it’s going to get worse for a while. I think it’s going to be a rough century.

    The problem with deniers is that they abort the serious debate that needs to start now. Basically can we and do we try to stop the warming or do we start figuring out how to live with the new reality. Either approach is likely to be very expensive and require massive changes to the way we live. We probably can’t afford to do both. And if we wait to long we may not be able to do either.

    But then it will snow in December and the number will go down to 30%.

    Correct. In the past about 30 years, they have receded by the same percentage as in the 200 years before that. Tells you something ??

    It tells SABRSteve absolutely nothing. He is an absolute denier, very like conspiracy freaks whose minds are totally closed to any but their own fantasies.

    truth is not accepted, deniers will have to wake up sometime. I wish they were right. I wish the glacier ice were not melting at a foot an hour.
    I WIsh the polar bears were not losing the battle of melting ice.
    I would be overjoyed if they were right, but they are all either lying to themselves or others.
    Until a problem is admitted and addressed nothing helpful will be done.

    Dang it, Bors! Earth is at aphelion in July! Everybody knows that. Libs fail at both meteorology and astronomy. I sum up all the lib comments as saying, “The deniers just don’t get it.” you’re right. The world ended in 1975. We’re all dead, but we don’t know it and are in limbo, the spiritual state where we appear as ghosts in old buildings. So stop trying to convince us that a dead planet is getting hotter and try to convince us that we’re dead and need to move on to Heaven or wherever. On second thought, don’t. Last thing we need is liberals thinking about our deaths.

    Just a note to Mr. Joad, not that I expect you’ll actually see this, but the article has nothing new in it that hasn’t come up during every campaign. I will assume you are about college age, and have not seen many pre-millennial campaigns, but throughout our history, this has been the practice of quoting our politicians. In fact, many Americans did not know FDR required the use of a wheelchair during the entirety of his Presidency. The press has done this out of respect for the office, but it also has allowed Presidents and candidates the luxury of clarity of message. This is not necessarily censorship. That would be someone’s quote disappearing completely, which is not what the article is about.
