Here's the thing with the Global Warming... it not merely going to get warmer, the pace of getting warmer is accelerating.

Your headline reeks of ignorance, subby. And it pains me to explain this to you, because I'm sure you won't understand, but I'm a glutton for punishment so I guess I'll try anyway.

See, let's just say that 2012 *was* the hottest year on record. And there's no guarantee that it actually was, of course, because there's endless proof that climate scientists are constantly emailing lies to each other. But let's say it was, just for argument's sake. So what does that mean?

Well, let's consider the first possibility, which is that 2013 ends up being cooler than 2012. So, YAY. You got it right, 2012 WAS the hottest year on record. But if it's getting cooler, then how is the earth getting WARMER, dumbass?

It's not. It's getting cooler. So, done. You, 0. Me, 1.

On the other hand, let's say that 2013 ends up being hotter than 2012. That means that 2012 was *not* the hottest year on record, right? I mean, can you deny that? So it turns out that 2012 wasn't the hottest year, and 2013 was. And climate activists or whatever they want to call themselves this year will be all like, "Oh, see, this proves that the earth IS getting hotter."

But you know what that's really called? Of course you do, because you probably spend a lot of time debating dumb points in internet forums. It's called "moving the goal posts." It's like, "oh, 2012 is the hottest year EVAR. Everybody panic!" And then 2013 rolls around and you're like, "oh, 2013 is the hottest year EVAR. Everybody panic and forget what we said about 2012!" You mess up calling the hottest year on record, and so instead of saying, "wow, I was wrong, 2012 WASN'T the hottest year on record," you try to just pretend that you never said that at all. It's astounding chutzpah, really. But in the end, for all intensive purposes, it's completely dishonest. And dishonesty will never win you anything. You, 0, Me, 2.

Please. I implore you. Study what you're talking about before you post your next headline. There's enough misunderstanding and stupidity on here as it is, and it would behoof you to not be a part of it.

That one is easy. People buy guns to feel safer. That's also the reason people buy large SUVs. SUVs cause global warming. Therefore, people who want to feel safer cause global warming and, by extension, gun owners cause global warming. Tada!

Move on down here to Yuma, Arizona.

You only had to run AC from around May through September.

These days, you'll get 100+ degree heat from April through November.  Though I'd gladly pay the electric bills if it kept the snowbirds off the streets.  Driving 10 MPH under the speed limit and coming to a stop at green lights is a thing down here.

The problem with this is that the global whaarrrrgarblers aren't creating a better world. They're sniping at the environmental programs that are based in actual science, to benefit the social cause of greenhouse gases. They don't give a flying fark about water pollution, coastal erosion, overfishing, or even rainforest deforestation for the most part, because it's just easier to biatch about carbon dioxide than to stop eating sushi or putting chemicals down stormdrains.

When I was a kid, you could expect it to reach -20 F in the Twin Cities maybe 10-15 days per winter. Heck, it even reached -30 F in Saint Paul back in the mid-Eighties. Nowadays, it maybe goes below zero a handful of times each winter and early last March, it hit an astonishing 80 degrees, smashing the previous high temperature. I know beyond all doubt that the climate in Minnesota has changed in the last 30 years. I certainly don't mind the warm weather, but it's really starting to freak me out.

Let's hope this is just a random, transient climate change. If it's global warming, we're in for a shiatstorm of freaky climate change in the near future. I don't have any kids, so it doesn't matter much to me if the world goes to hell ten minutes after I'm buried, but you parents out there might want to take this seriously...

Climate changes. Warmer, then colder, then warmer again. More CO2, less CO2, then more again. Been doing it for billions of years. The best conditions for life are warmer and CO2-rich. We're coming out of an ice age... what do you expect?

log_jammin: Psycat: to Einstein's relativity,

that's the one that gets me the most. They are so crazy that they think physics theories can be liberal.


This is how their reasoning works. One of the bigger bugs up their butts is "moral relativity"; that is, the idea that morality might depend on the particular situation rather than having some sort of absolute, Bible-based moral system. Apparently, that's the ultimate moral failure of liberals. Never mind that conservatives themselves practice moral relativity--for example, the Biblical commandment against murder doesn't apply in military combat, execution of criminals, etc. And, in the very cramped minds of the idiots who write for the Conservapedia, relativity in the physics sense somehow translates into relativity in the moral sense. Teach E=MC^2 and suddenly cats are marrying dogs and kids are mainlining reefer while sodomizing each other. Yes, this is how these mental eunuchs really think...

Having spent a few years of my childhood in close proximity of Southern Baptists, I'm afraid these folks are real. I can't read Conservapedia for more than 10 minutes without getting a serious headache. Seriously, there should be a picture of Einstein pointing to the number 70 and saying "Your IQ must be lower than this to enter."

No doubt. On the other hand, it's been proven to a zillion decimal places that atheism invariably leads to homosexuality, obesity, and mass murder.

Some liberal politicians have extrapolated the theory of relativity to metaphorically justify their own political agendas. For example, Democratic President Barack Obama helped publish an article by liberal law professor Laurence Tribe to apply the relativistic concept of "curvature of space" to promote a broad legal right to abortion.[64]

Nope. Shaftfly believes General and Special Relativity beget moral relativity and liberalism.
