    The ignorant cartoonist is playing to the ignorant again.

    Is it the scientific communities intent to stop the “change” in climate by regulation of fossil fuel use? Are the content with a “carbon” exchange that sends money from 1st world countries to third world countries so that they can then use MORE fossil fuels? Has every 1st world country signed on to this “scheme” and begun regulation of their fossil fuel use? Will the U.N – remember the way they handled the oil embargo and the profits made – be in charge of the monies and see to their distribution?

    Science brings you knowledge.

    Politicians use that knowledge for personal gain.

    It is up to YOU to make a difference.

    Just interesting that it’s the deniers who keep confusing “weather” with “climate”, not the researchers who’ve confirmed time and time again, that the climate IS changing, and humans are the primary cause of this accelerated level of change. Once again, in the ’50’s, those monitoring climate changes spoke to the cooling in Northern Europe, and heating in the Mediterranean area and North Africa, as regional changes that could expand. When the laws changed to alter human activities, the global change to an overall pattern of heating, also changed.

    From an article on “Grist”: Back in the 2012 campaign, conservative pundits like Rush Limbaugh reacted with fury when Mitt Romney sort of admitted that climate change is happening. Even though Romney said we shouldn’t do anything about it, the right-wing base was not mollified until Romney renounced his belief in the science itself. Joseph Lawler, a blogger for the conservative American Spectator, revealed why. Republicans have to deny the existence of climate change, not just oppose measures to address it, because if they admit that it’s real, they might be open to changing their minds about taking action. “Expressing skepticism of the science behind climate change, as for instance Gov. Rick Perry has, allows candidates to assure voters that they won’t support cap and trade or carbon taxes once they’re in office,” Lawler wrote. “This assurance is necessary because often Republicans who do believe in global warming end up working with Democrats on climate change bills — John McCain is a good example.”

    If CO2 is the culprit; then something needs to be done about 7+billion people breathing.
    Bottom line, whether industrialization is the cause or not; we waste too many resources and don’t recycle enough.

    The ignorant commenter (aka bernardgarner) is playing to the ignorant, gullible, GW religious fanatics. This cartoon is actually quite accurate. They had to change the name because they were looking like fools because their predictions were not coming to pass. Comments like “children in England will grow up having never seen snow” were followed by very cold winter weather. The drastic hurricanes they said would be linked to GW never came to pass (a very quiet year followed that prediction), the had to admit the sun was far more responsible for climate on the planet than they had considered, more heat escapes into space than they had thought, the polar bear (false poster child for the GW religion) population was actually rising while they predicted dire doom despair, the glacier study showing “evidence” of GW that received such acclaim (at first) was shown to be based on false data, the historical data shows that rises in temp typically preceded rises in CO2, and then the GW gurus were caught lying and plotting how to further dupe the public into believing their scam, one of whom admitted he nearly committed suicide due to the shame over being caught in such a bald faced deception, the islands they said would sink into the sea have failed to do so, and the polar ice continues to fluctuate up and down and has not vanished as predicted. Yeah, GW, religion for the lunatic. The largest supposed greenhouse gas is water vapor, not CO2, and the ocean along with the sun is a major contributing control factor. And of course let us not forget their hypocritical high priest, the Gore, jetting around the world to warn people about things like jetting around the world and then returning to his big mega-mansion. Of course, he does not care, he already made his pile on this scam.

    Good for you. I have solar panes as well and finally saved enough to get a hybrid car. The car generates electricity with the motor and with the brake system. So far it seems to cut my gas consumption by at least half. I really need to do more than a general look at the figures BUT I buy 5-6 gals a month now rather than 12 gals every 3-4 weeks. I don’t drive much anyway.

    If the Feds would think to subsidize solar in a different way … maybe by giving the energy companies a break IF they were to install panels on individual homes for example. They could install the panels, give the customer a break on electricity costs as “rent” for the roof top and still be in the energy business while everyone could be producing power.

    Well, it’s a thought that every new home should be outfitted with at least a 5k system when constructed.

    Adding 15-20K to a hew home price is not so bad when wrapped up in the mortgage…..

    And yes, we SHOULD have a world community through international cooperation in science. But it seems our educational system is geared toward demonization of anyone with a different opinion teaching conformity and obedience.

    Just my opinion and so not of great value.

    Illinois taxes me when I work – income tax, they tax me when I drive – fuel tax, and property tax, and death tax, sales tax when I buy stuff. Now they want a storm tax, a rain tax, a tornado tax, and why not a sun tax.

    As far as warming oceans, have you ever heard of volcanic vents ? Meanwhile, the icecaps are thicker than ever…

    Wait… You let a power company put solar panels on your house – panels that will create electricity the company will sell – and you STILL have to pay for the electricity?

    The kid is right.

    It is called weather, and we have ZERO control over it. ZERO!

    Anyone that thinks we can control the weather by attempting to control the CO2 emissions is either a liar or totally stupid.

    Take your pick.

    Jim Guess: for years, they salted the clouds over the Wasatch and made them drop more snow on the mountains, for skiing, mostly, but created a nastier rain shadow to the east of the range: that’s Man changing thew weather.

    Sea levels are rising and that rise is being measured. The people in the Maldives are slowly seeing their country disappear. By 2100 two thirds of southern Florida will be inundated at the present rate.

    global warming started 10,000 years ago. Ask an alaskan

    There’s a lot on that blackboard.
    A lot of it makes sense, in an E=mcHammer sort of way.
    Ramirez spent a lot of time & effort on this.
