    Gore is just one voice among many… I’m not sure why the deniers can’t comprehend that science works differently than fundamentalist religion.
    With Fundamentalist religion, the religious leader speaks, and followers believing that everything coming out of that leader’s mouth is the gospel truth.
    I know it is hard to comprehend, but with science, we don’t idolize people like that. Gore just happens to be the ‘messenger’. He didn’t do the research, he isn’t the scientist. There is nothing special about him other than his determination to get the message out. If he turns starts misinterpreting the science, then he will lose his credibility, but that won’t change the science.
    Furthermore, most of us who are concerned about climate change know for a fact that he has made mistakes, and isn’t always correct. We know this because that is true for everyone. Nobody is perfect.

    97% of scientists agree that global warming is real and man made… but hey, why don’t I agree with some random guy on the internet who claims he is better at math than scientists.

    It doesn’t matter how much Obamacare succeeds, the ‘right’ will call it a complete failure.
    It doesn’t matter how much Obamacare fails, the ‘left’ will call it a success.
    Never have I seen a better example of confirmation bias.

    Yet here you are continuing the debate.
    I can boil it down to something simple.
    Approximately 97% of scientific research supports the theory that humans are causing global warming. It is nigh impossible for some stranger on the internet to convince me that these scientists are all wrong.
    Your epistemological approach to life doesn’t place value in that… as such it is nigh impossible for me to convince you that you are wrong.
    Conclusion: debate is futile

    I’m sorry, you misunderstand my intentions.
    I’m not trying to debate the subject with you or any other individuals who deny human caused global warming. I already know it is impossible to change the views of someone who defines truth on beliefs rather than on facts.
    I’m just providing interesting information for the other forum readers that like to know what is really going on.
    For those who feel frustrated reading comments by deniers: don’t forget that deniers are actually a minority (a very loud minority). 97% of the scientific community says that humans are a major factor in the current global warming trend. Also, the majority of people living in every other developed country believe the scientific community.

    Climate change deniers don’t make decisions based on truth. They make decisions based on belief. Bringing facts to the argument will only fall on deaf ears.
    Step outside America and climate change deniers are viewed the same as those who deny the moon landing really happened, or those who insist that the earth is flat.

    Funny thing… this isn’t “Political” it is simply science and fact. There is nothing ‘left’ or ‘right’ about it.

    I find it interesting that America is the only developed country on the planet where there is a public debate about climate change. Every other country accepts it as fact.

    I’m having trouble with the “poor children seeking a better life” argument.
    If you add up all the children on the planet that are malnurished and literally starving, that number would be higher than the entire population of America.
    Every single one of those children would love to come to America for a better life. Should all of them be allowed?

    The moderates in the US are all the Muslims that accepted the ‘melting pot’ mentality and assimilated into regular American culture. You don’t hear from them because they are average every-day people and don’t do anything extraordinary (good or bad).

    Not all Muslims are bad or evil. That being said, many are extremists, and you most certainly should be concerned about them.

    The stats don’t change no matter who gets killed. The thing is, if you want to solve a problem, you have to understand the problem. Spouting ignorance about the problem doesn’t help.

    “The world is a more violent place than in the past” – FALSE
    “America is more threatened by world violence than in the past” – TRUE

    Understand the problem and then address the problem.

    There are moderates in that part of the world. That’s what the Arabic Spring was all about.
