Warming causes melt, melt increases water, increased water increases rain and snow, increased snow doesn't melt in summer causing glaciers, glaciers grow moving from the poles toward the equator in the latest ice age.

I would comment but I've been out shoveling and I need to warm up my wife's boobies.

So called "scientists" haven't provided one shred of evidence to support their climate change "theory". Until they come up with some hard facts I want to be able to opt out of any of my tax dollars going to the "environmental" boondoggles of this administration.

I most certainly am. How many Americans have lost their jobs over these failing policies? How much taxpayer money wasted?

Love how they had strike out the alarmist premature text. LOL that's some fine science! You know they only left the the text because WUWT documented their original report and found all the flaws. But go ahead and believe NASA wanted you to know they screwed up and had to rewrite the report.

As someone who doesn't typically read things like this, why does it include sentences that were struck through (wrong term I'm sure)?  Shouldn't those have just been left out?  It's like they published the red-lined version.

What about otter scrubbers? Environmental policies mean fewer oil spills, which means fewer job opportunities for the guys who scrub oil off of otters. Why don't we ask THEM what they think?

/Granddad was a coal miner. Coal mining is the worst farking job in the universe, AND it's devastating the Southern Appalachians, where I grew up. Anything that decreases coal mining is a good thing.

About what? The explosion in natural gas (pun intended) usage that is driving "consumers" away from coal powered things?
That policy? The one implemented by Cheney and Congress and enhanced again in 2005? That one that makes unconventional shale gas drilling exempt from EPA oversight essentially establishing natural gas as the preferred fossil fuel for America for the next few decades?

That Obama policy? (He does have a time machine after all)

Or did you mean the EPA policy that restores the 1996 restrictions on mercury emissions from coal fired power plants?

Lookit... the earth's climate is in constant flux. The temperature rises and cools all the time. It is a natural cycle. If you think our species is capable of having any significant impact on this planet which has survived thousands of years of these peaks and valleys you are an egotist and know nothing about the true nature of science.

From Dr. Jeff Masters at Wunderground

The old adage, "it's too cold to snow", has some truth to it, and there is research supporting the idea that the average climate in the U.S. is colder than optimal to support the heaviest snowstorms. For example, Changnon et al. (2006) found that for the contiguous U.S. between 1900 - 2001, 61% - 80% of all heavy snowstorms of 6+ inches occurred during winters with above normal temperatures. The authors also found that 61% - 85% of all heavy snowstorms of 6+ inches occurred during winters that were wetter than average. The authors conclude, "a future with wetter and warmer winters, which is one outcome expected (National Assessment Synthesis Team 2001), will bring more heavy snowstorms of 6+ inches than in 1901 - 2000." The authors found that over the U.S. as a whole, there had been a slight but significant increase in heavy snowstorms of 6+ inches than in 1901 - 2000. If the climate continues to warm, we should expect an increase in heavy snow events for a few decades, until the climate grows so warm that we pass the point where winter temperatures are at the optimum for heavy snow events.

If you think our species is capable of having any significant impact on this planet which has survived thousands of years of these peaks and valleys you are an egotist and know nothing about the true nature of science.


The primary control on Earth's climate over geological time scales is the concentration of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. The concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is up 40% from pre-industrial levels and increasing rapidly, an effect that can be directly traced to fossil fuel burning due to the change in isotopic composition of the CO2. If you are incapable of accepting these facts you are willfully anti-science and anti-reality.

While I think global warming is a crock of shiat, lets examine some of the good that is coming from greener energy and if it isn't a crock what we could see as positives.

Cleaner cities, fewer chemicals (if done properly), less expensive gas (it is high now, think about how much higher if we didn't have more fuel efficient vehicles), economic resurgent, green buildings and fewer items winding up in land fills.

If it is true then we could save baby seals or some shiat.
