    It's OK to believe in climate change. Just don't believe it's man made.
    Be Not Afraid.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    I absolutely believe in climate change. The climate changes all the time. It always has and always will. Last year, we had hardly any snow all winter. The year before there were tons of snow. How does either one fit in with the "global warming" b.s.? If it were true, you'd think we'd get more of one or the other, but we don't. The data purported to prove global warming has been proven to be both complete bunk (e.g. weather stations being affected by urban growth) as well as manipulated (i.e. "hide the decline").

    One thing I do know is that whatever you have to deal with, the high priests of Global Warming have anticipated it and have an explanation for why it's proof of rather than evidence against Global Warming.

    It's rather like arguing the absurdity of Christianity with the Catholic Church: they have had 1500 years to make up excuses (more or less plausible depending upon the willingness you have to believe) for why the gaping holes in the science and logic of the Bible aren't evidence of its humanity rather than its divinity.

    You know...you were actually starting to sound like a rational thinking human being with that post until you took your gratuitous and uncalled for...and quite frankly unneeded shot at religion.

    You know it IS ok to make a point here relative to a topic without getting a cheap shot in on one of your pet peeves.

    Global Warming is a religion. It's a belief system with a myth at its center, and back and fill which includes some actual people and events to make it more plausible. But it's still a belief system, not a science system.

    You have moments of lucidity followed by delusion, take your lithium.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I'm not the one who believes in the magic sky creature who is somehow the source of all that is good without being responsible for all that is bad. If that sounds a bit like, "Lot's of snow is a sign of Global Warming" and "No snow is a sign of Global Warming" it's because it's the same kind of stuff.
