    The guys who erected the sign are Big Business (Big Oil, Big Coal etc.). The guy on the rooftop is small business. He doesn’t have a lobbyist. He only has President Obama to help him out, again, like with the tax cuts for small businesses as part of the stimulus package. We read a lot about big companies threatening their employees with dismissal if they don’t vote GOP. But we never hear that from small business owners. They know the score, they know who’s their champion…

    here’s some news for you climate change worriers…God built in earth weather/climate cycles…it goes from ice age to jungle age….warmer weather could be good for farming areas not now farmed…to produce food and fiber for good use for humans.
    P.S. passing big spending big government big “projects” won’t stop the cycles…..it will only help marxists gain control of governments…..to change the Land of Opportunity and Better Living to retrograde communist slum societies. Think East Berlin. Think Moscow stores with very little on the shelves to sell. Think topdown poverty for all but the governing elite.
    (I vote NO—-no government “solutions” that cause worse problems, historically)

    Howie, your climate change ignorance was out of date twenty years ago. It’s past just stupid and ignorant now, it’s downright offensive in the face of such death and destruction. Educate yourself. Your entire “conservative” movement is becoming irrelevant because you simply don’t accept facts as facts, and it’s becoming clear to every rational person in this country.

    So it would have been great to let the ozone layer go, because it’s just one of those “God built in earth weather/climate cycles?”
    …………………………
    “Because of measures taken under the Montreal Protocol, emissions of ozone-depleting substances are already falling. Levels of total inorganic chlorine in the stratosphere peaked in 1997 and 1998. The good news is that the natural ozone production process will heal the ozone layer in about 50 years.”

    Climate change is real. Man can’t cause it. Man can’t stop it.

    explain to me how a carbon credit could have stopped this hurricane? Mind you this was not the 1st time such a thing has happened.

    I really think that as disappointing as it was to not see the climate issue come up, and Sandy is a good reason why it SHOULD have, I think the reason was that given how the “whack doodles” went after “Benghazi”, the distraction of actually addressing any issue requiring intelligence would have “lost” too many of the public.

    Seriously, vote for me and we will be able to control the climate. I’ve got it all figured out how moving money into the proper hands will make it all better. I will spend your money on controlling the climate. I will spend what I skim on adapting to the changes, but that’s just me. I herd dinosaurs, and I approve of this message.

    You really ought to read something factual. The garbage you’re reading now isn’t keeping you up to date.

    Keep up with the news. The hole you’re worried about is shrinking.

    “…in a 2 year stretch, 1954-1955 6 hurricanes, affected N Carolinas with at least hurricane conditions and 8 in a 7 year stretch from 1954-1960. And cat 2 or greater in New England with a sideswipe to the west from the great Hazel in 1954, and then Donna in 1960, a storm that gave hurricane force winds to every state on the east coast.”

    Can you imagine the hysteria we’d hear from the “sky-is-falling” left if this were to happen today? (Oh,wait… it’s the same hysteria we hear every time it drizzles…)

    Joe Bastardi Show Parallels To The 1950s, And Tells Us What to Expect Looking Forward

    Gavin Schmidt: Statements Made On Fox By Bastardi Are “Nonsense,” And “Simply Ignorant.” In a point-by-point rebuttal to multiple statements made in the past by Bastardi, NASA climatologist Gavin Schmidt used the words “nonsense,” “simply ignorant,” “completely wrong,” “handwaving,” “very odd,” and “based on nothing.” Schmidt concluded that presenting Bastardi as an expert on climate change is “about as credible as someone claiming to be an expert on the Greenland ice sheet because they eat ice cream.” [Email to Media Matters, 8/16/11]
    ……………………………..
    Bastardi frequently appears on CNN and Fox News, arguing against anthropogenic global warming and looking as though he’s about to burst out of his shirt like Bruce Banner. He’s debated Bill Nye the Science Guy on The O’Reilly Factor and gotten into a "Science Catfight " with Brenda Ekwurzel, a climatologist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, on The Colbert Report. Until earlier this week, he was the “Chief Long Range Forecaster” for AccuWeather, a weather-forecasting service based in State College, Pennsylvania. But his bread and butter, he says, are his corporate clients, the names of which he won’t divulge, saying only that he’s “heavily involved in energy. Some of the companies that I work for were very happy that it snowed as much as it did this winter.” [Vanity Fair, 2/24/11]

    Churchill was right, but you sure aren’t. What hogwash.
