Alphax: I heard a story on NPR a week or so back, with a guy who lives much of the time in Antartica. He noticed how much the place changes each year, especially the western hemisphere part. He noted one glacier in particular, where you once heard a loud crash as part of it broke off, once or twice a month. It's now almost hourly.


He's making that up to get more of that sweet sweet grant money. You know he's driving around the Antarctic highways in a high end sports car that's been featured on Top Gear.

fusillade762: kg2095: spongeboob: What is going to happen regarding Climate Change is that at some point when it can not be denied, some Premillenial author is going to go back to Revelations or Daniel and find something that proves that Biblical Prophecy predicted Climate Change.

At that point the Premillenial Christians will say there is nothing we can do because it is all according to God's Plan

Well, they'll be half right - when it gets to that point there will be nothing we can do. In fact I wonder if it's not already too late.

I worry, too. Because some of these morons are IN CHARGE.

'The planet won't be destroyed by global warming because God promised Noah,' says politician bidding to chair U.S. energy committee


I thought that was just regarding floods.

"NASA climatologist Gavin Schmidt told Media Matters for Fox to present Joe Bastardi, their weather forecaster, as a climate expert is "about as credible as someone claiming to be an expert on the Greenland ice sheet because they eat ice cream."

Did anyone else find this funny as hell?

/ Fox News: We keep using that word 'climate', and what we think it means isn't what you think it means.

GRANT MONEY!


My girlfriend just finished her latest grant application process (NIH, but a similar process I believe) which took up the past 10 weeks of her time and will never, ever make her wealthy. Federal grants do not work that way.

/NIH grants don't pay well

gameshowhost: gulogulo: In other words:

"One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise."

aegean: Every religion claims its detractors are wrong about them. The climate change religion is no different.


This is stupid logic. Claiming that your detractors are wrong somehow makes them right by default? How the fark does that work?

Not dancing, but it's just about as likely to work as dancing.

I like the way these guys will find a veterinarian who disagrees with the climate scientist and hold him up as an expert because he knows sciency stuff.

I'm shocked to hear that 7% of the stories on Fox News on this subject are actually accurate.
