    A complete (willful) lack of understanding of climate change. Just another GOP hack.

    Willful ignorance is not an impressive trait.

    I thought perhaps Payne was simply pandering to his public, but no, the guy really is an anthropomorphic climate change denier.The Wiki entry for Henry Payne has this gem: ‘Payne has criticized the mainstream media as corrupt, and is an outspoken critic of the corruption in global warming news reporting’

    More, he writes for the National Review. Here’s an article penned by him:‘It isn’t the fossil-fuel companies that are polluting climate science.’ by Henry Payne, 25th Feb, 2015

    The willful ignorance is strong in this one.

    Record heat a few weeks ago, record (or very nearly) snows this weekend, and Payne and folks don’t think anything strange is going on with the climate? (Changes that happen to follow what models predicted.)

    I bet he even thinks that the water in Flint is a spa treatment

    Ah Henry, you are going to make Clay Bennet cry, he gets upset when someone makes fun of the Global Warming hysteria, although he had a lot of fun ridiculing the deniers, that shows he can dish it, but he can’t take it. It’s funny though, how more and more people are getting out of the hysteria wagon, no one is scared any more; last October (2015) I was in Venice, Italy, and in high tide the water never got over the ancient docks, and according to the hysteria, Venice should be under dozen of feet of water by now. You go figure.I do notice though, that there are still people like the ones posting here, they love to go for the personal manual gratification and insisting in proving themselves right no matter what.

    CanFunny: you ARE aware of how expensive that moving barrier that defends Venice from most, but not all flooding today was, right? The Netherlands barrier was of course much costlier, and will have to be modified again before long to accommodate rising water levels.

    BTW: nobody was saying a dozen feet at Venice by this time. Doesn’t take that much to do damage.

    First of all it’s “Global Climate Change”, NOT global warming. Read the Pentagon’s report on whats going on for an eye opener. Koch/FOX haven’t bought them yet.

    Henry, don’t you ever get embarrassed when your lack of education shows?

    Yep. “It’s cold today where I live, so there’s no such thing as Global Warming.”.‘never mind about that record-breaking heat – doesn’t count..similar kind of right-wing logic that blames Obama when gas prices are high, and nothing but crickets when the gas prices are low. It’s those pesky, inconvenient facts that keep getting in the way.

    BTW: Repubtards (a distinct sub-group unable to follow any factual information) ARE aware it was Richard Nixon who created the EPA, right?

    It’s remarkable how insular climate change deniers are. All the explanations I have seen so far for the extreme weather in parts of the northern hemisphere this (northern hemisphere) winter say it stems from a stronger-than-usual “El Niño” effect, caused by WARMER-than-usual water in the south pacific, off South America. Meanwhile, when I mentioned the cold weather we are having right now in Hong Kong, a friend in New Zealand mentioned how how it was down there.

    It’s okay, most climate change people don’t either. When one place has unusual weather, the newspapers say it’s an example of climate change. Like, this is the exact argument they use.
