    Looks like Luckovich is a convert to the Church of Gorebal Warming…

    The if Gore repeated it, it must not be true camp will be in full swing on this toon.

    Think my way or you’re nut jobs, is that about it?

    FYI, most of the rest of the world is having it pretty hot just now. The weather outside your door is not universal.

    I think Mike’s being awfully kind to the protestors in this cartoon: sure, the spelling on the signs is crude, but at least all the words appear to be in the same language.

    That’s exactly the point. GLOBAL warming refers to the average temperature of the GLOBE (the earth). Average means the temperature in all the different places added together and divided by the number of places. With the average temperature of our atmosphere increasing, weather patterns are changing, so in many parts of the world, what has been “normal” weather for centuries is changing. Predictions of local weather in any particular place are even more difficult than before, but based on the rising global AVERAGE temperature and the continually increasing amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it is easy to predict that the trend will continue and the average global temperature will continue to rise, causing continued severe and unpredictable weather.

    Wasting your time.
    The facts are unassailable, and those ignorant of them are ignorant of them on purpose, mostly for religious reasons, but some actually cannot comprehend.
    .
    Either way, at this stage of the game facts are not a factor anymore, it is belief.

    I would be very happy to be convinced that the climate is not changing rapidly and that human actions have nothing to do with the change. But as of now, the evidence I see in favor of the theory of global climate change is persuasive. But I’m not closed minded on the issue.

    If any who disagree with the theory of global climate change have substantive points backed up by references to real science, then I will read what you have to contribute. Those who argue for the theory have a lot of science they can put forward. Do the opponents? If not, what is the basis for your opinion? If you don’t have a good basis in science for your opinion, then why are you so convinced?

    “Low intelligence global warming believers now can weigh in why we should believe in their false data and websites.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You’re not very good at looking at the big picture, are you?"

    What about the low intelligence of those that believed Al Gore and his prediction of the ice cap being gone in five years?

    The “facts” put forward by the alarmists have been “fudged” over and over. Either by actually changing the numbers or ignoring data. In fact, average world temps have NOT gone up in the last 20 years. It is a fact that the alarmists had to change the name to “climate change” because “warming” was so obviously wrong. It is my opinion there are at least three groups involved in selling CC. The true believers (a small group), the environmentalists who what us all living in unheated caves and eating berries (also a small but powerful group). . The largest group are those people who have been intimidated by the “thought police” are afraid to disagree when they really don’t know what is going on. Predictions have been wrong over and over. Last summer was to be a high hurricane year due to CC. WRONG! The coastline cities would already be under water. WRONG. Even if CC was real, I would not sit still and see my energy cost got up 10×. Remember, we had a similar (but less well organized and funded) on the approaching Ice Age. Wake up people, this is a hoax designed to cripple the US.

    @gbrucewilson

    Perhaps you are right. Do you have evidence to back up your position?

    Science is a process where one makes observations, forms a theory makes predictions and observes whether or not the predictions work in reality. (“Many a beautiful theory has dies a cruel and unusual death at the hands of one little inconvenient fact”) The problem with the Global Warming Theories is that so many predictions have been made which do not work out that the theory is questioned, as it should be.

    " If you don’t have a good basis in science for your opinion, then why are you so convinced?"
    They are convinced because fossil fuel industry has spent millions of dollars trying to convince us that there is not anthropomorphic global warming OR to give us doubts about whether or not it is happening. Apparently, some of us do not remember the same tactic used by big tobacco. An overwhelming majority of climate scientists are a lot more believable than Rush and his friends.

    Global Warming (now called “Climate Change”) is a invention of uber-left advocates of global wealth redistribution that was intended to start a public hysteria that would culminate in the passage of Cap & Trade.

    Except a few things went wrong:
    The global warmists were caught manipulating weather data and feeding it into deliberately biased climate models that predicted imminent catastrophic temperature increases, meting polar ice caps, melting glacieirs, sea level rising hundreds of feet, and polar bears drowning.

    And then the real data showed that the earth wasn’t warming, but, if anything, headed into a cooling cycle. Seas weren’t rising, polar bears weren’t drowning, all the glaciers weren’t melting.

    Then a bunch uber-left loyalist went down to the Antarctic with intent to claim that the annual summer ice cap melt around the edges was proof of global warming (ignoring the fact that the the polar ice cap melt refreezes in the antarctic winter), and promptly got their entire ship frozen in the refreezing ice cap.

    But I’ll give the global warmist credit for some things — being persistently self-deceptive and stupidly blind to reality.
