    Say when someone says, I have this book that says the world will be overtaken by God, there is reason to question. When we have information, facts and details about how the climate is changing and how that will effect sea levels and bio systems.

    There is no equating the bible to scientific methodology.

    Maybe God is USING climate change as the method for the end-times! Listen up, climate change deniers! Whaddya think, HQ?

    gorebull? worship? sky is falling? almighty computer? HQ really knows how to keep the dialogue from corroding, huh?

    Healthcare deniers worship whatever “statistics” they can spin in their favor. Hey what happens when I tell citizens that their president wants to kill them, oh look you get polls that go down. The sky is falling the sky is falling. The almighty insurance companies told us so.

    It’s as if somehow HQ and the other deniers have something to gain by their denials. Do we not breathe the same air? Is there something stupid or evil about the intricate balance between atmosphere, ionosphere, and life on earth?

    If you think you are being lied to so that Al Gore can make money, don’t you think that would have been obvious by now? I’m not sure why you ridicule the motives behind all those who study global climate change. Is it because you think something really really big will be pulled over on us? What? Did you think anything big was being pulled over on you when Donald Rumsfeld told us we’d be out of Iraq in 2 months, tops? Strewn flowers, oil revenue, etc. I’ve never heard you ridicule anything except Democrats; anything liberal must be ridiculed.

    Oh, and I love that “Dihydrogen Monoxide is more dangerousness”. Yep.

    Water vapor is NOT a “greenhouse gas”- it is VAPOR, and rises, then descends in the hydrologic cycle. CO2 remains in the atmosphere, as do chloroflourocarbons, and other chemical reagents. New York and Miami under water might be to our advantage, not sure how the folks in Bangladesh feel about it. The myth of Noah’s flood was stolen from older cultures, and not possible. Losing coastal areas is not a myth. Continental drift, and the rise of mountain ranges is NOT myth, and was part of dynamic change long before humans messed with things.

    Religions around the world have lots of myths. An intelligent design for the multiple universes does not define a power identified in the old testament insistence upon a being in Man’s image, which is what they really meant, after all. The true power of the universes, as Einstein recognized is actually beyond the human capacity (mind) to explain, and he was sorta’ bright.

    Not putting all your faith in any particular set of myths doesn’t mean you do not accept a force far more powerful than humanity. (Like those humans who actually wrote, interpreted, and re-interpreted those same myths.)

    church, if you want to convince us, try using real news, not wingnut blogs. For Al Gore to put his money where his mouth is and invest in renewable energy is just common sense.

    The second frame is so inaccurate. I guess when you repeat something enough it is supposed to make it true.

    There is absolutely no consensus about man-made global warming. In truth, the scientific community is very divided over the issue.

    In fact, just recently the American Chemistry Society’s editor-in-chief got blasted by his own colleages for not only saying that man-made global warming is proven science but taking a condescending tone with his own colleages just assuming they would tow the line.

    In high school science I was taught that evidence from experimentation is what establishes the facts. Ten million scientists can agree on something but if experimentation is done repeatedly and the evidence does not support them, ALL ten million of them are wrong.

    We’re back to Gallileo. The world believed the earth was flat but experimentation proved it was round. They didn’t believe him and put him on trial for making such statements because the consensus was that the earth was flat. In the end, experimentation brought the evidence and guess what… the consensus changed because the facts could not be denied.

    Global warming scientists are flat-earthers now? Deniers are Gallileo?

    OK, then.

    The warnings of Dihydrogen Monoxide by some of you piqued my curiosity, so I looked it up. Wow, ya’ll were right!! I now have a new addition to my folder on “The Power of Myth”, and plan to place a Dihydrogen Monoxide absorbent device in my bathroom for skin protection.

    Too much of a good thing is not good. Food = good. Lots and too much food = fat,unhealthy person.

    CO2 = good. Lots and lots and tons and mega tons and lots more CO2 = not good. So simple, righties.
