    Mother Nature has a brutal sense of humor, when she’s ticked off at being ignored.

    Sadly, one smack doesn’t do it. You have to hit him again and again. (Then he’ll complain about YOU not doing something about the problem sooner.

    Same false premise as always. Yes, climate changes. It does so all the time, and mostly in cycles. Yes, man contributes to greenhouse gasses.

    It’s false to claim that there are many who deny that.

    However, many deny that man contributes enough to the total to be responsible for the climate changes, and that Cap and Tax will make any difference except to be costly to businesses and consumers.

    Am I wrong? Show me the undeniable published data that proves otherwise.

    I’m so glad you’re easily distracted from my policies by a few good conspiracy theories.Don’t pay any attention to the fact that I’m surrounded by George W. Bush’s advisors or the fact that my friends in Congress promise to help return to Bush’s policies of regulatory incompetence, crony heads of government agencies and costly military mis-adventures.

    @stippleYou can’t address it if you are unwilling to acknowledge its existence. Even the people who will admit to believing in climate change, but who don’t believe it is contributed to by man’s quest to burn as much fossil fuel as possible, will not address it, because it would lend credence to those who believe that man is part of the cause.

    Ansonia: folks building on barrier islands like Texas, beach front cliffs like Palos Verdes, or in FIRE ZONES like Malibu Canyon, for decades, and rebuilding in the same areas, just as stupidly, without taking any “preventative measures” DO make it seem that I.Q. is inversely proportional to income.

    When it comes to intellect vs opinion, you leave no doubt as to your alignment. It isn’t just “climate change”, its the whole matter of “modern man” or the “religiously indoctrinated”, who ignore all the “messages” that “nature” sends out, regularly.

    Whatever is causing our increasingly bad weather events, it is important we use our science, technology, and schools to develop ways to lessen the effects to the degree we can. People have always built in the shadow of disasters. History is full of cities destroyed by volcano, earthquake, storms, etc. Many coastal communities are finding it hard to impossible to find insurance companies willing to cover homes built on sandbars or in very low lying areas. There are some brilliant designs for homes that are more storm resistant but until building codes make such designs required for those who wish to live in storm surge areas, people will continue to build their homes out of the proverbial straw and sticks until the big bad wolf blows them away and they can no longer afford to rebuild.As one who does believe climate change (global warming is not totally accurate) cyclical and greatly influenced by the mishandling of man, it is satisfying to see so many influential people with the education and position and willingness to address this important issue. How many events have to break records before we take action? From drought, to the worst tornado season on record, to massive blizzards, hurricanes, etc…. if there is something we can do, should we not try? Respectfully,C.

    Because people are idiots. Look at the number who plan on voting for Romney.

    You are so right! Everyone needs to move back a few miles and let the coast heal. It would also do wonders for precious ocean life currently being poisoned by pollution!

    All excellent points, Ansonia. In areas subject to severe storm surges, there will need to be restrictions about what type of structures can be built and how close to the present shoreline. This will mean more government bureaucracy, but the end result would be fewer financial (rather than climatic) disasters for the affected residents and businesses.
