    There has been no increase in global temperatures in the past 17 years. However, during that time there has been an increase in hysterical doomsday predictions and in verbal abuse toward anyone who questions their accuracy.

    Totally inaccurate. There have been MASSIVE increases in global temperatures, both in the ocean and the air. What globe do you live on?

    The ultra conservative globe of course. Which is always beautiful, and not polluted by the out of date industrial age fossil burning industries of man! Fantasy Land in other words!!

    Thermometers have no agenda, they merely indicate a physical property, heat.
    Oceans are hotter, air is hotter, ice is less, permafrost is melting.
    This is not debatable.
    To pretend otherwise is either extremely disingenuous or deliberate lie.
    When spoken by one who definitely is in the position to have access to temperature records it is a deliberate lie.
    When spoken by a person too ignorant to check records it is a reflection of very poor judgement.

    TripleAxel is obviously proficient on the internet where the raw records are available, the conclusion is obvious.

    Property tax. Death tax. Sales tax. Income tax. Gasoline tax. Now exhaust tax (carbon footprint credits), what next?

    @Adam Burnett
    You can’t breath money. You can’t drink it and you can’t eat it. Once the resources aren’t there to buy it’s just a bunch of funny paper or toiletries.
    If we could go to a means of propulsion that wasn’t fossil fuel based we could get rid of the Gasoline and exhaust taxes.

    Whether or not Global warming does exist what proof is there that CO2 is the cause. After-all CO2 does promote plant growth and this would remove the CO2 from the atmosphere.

    The problem with these exaggerations in not only ‘toons, but in idiot reporting like on Faux etc, is that the deniers try to claim this represents the scientific evidence they can’t stand, which it does not. Reality isn’t in these images, but the effects of climate change ARE more wide-spread, AND far more dangerous than the implications of these whacked out depictions.

    Satellites show no global warming for 17 years 5 months:

    …he says, as we’re clear cutting the rain forests.

    There are consequences to invasive species, plant or animal. And humans are about the most invasive species the earth has. I would hope even the staunchest denier would agree that, since the industrial revolution, we have significantly changed the composition of sea water and air. There are consequences. Ignore them if you dare, especially if you don’t care about successive generations.

    Tigger, the difference between now and the LAST ICE AGE was two degrees. That’s pretty doggoned massive — and we’re a long way from the peak!

    Saying it don’t make it so.

    And climate change is credited with the increases in extreme weather conditions.
