Dumbass, his TR's might suggest otherwise. Dingus lives in a populous region, yet spends lots of time without other people around in the outdoors. Hmmmm, I wonder how on earth he does that.

It is the real side of CAGW ideological political hypocritical rhetoric/propaganda denial.

The earth is indeed warming and has and will continue to do.

You egocentric utopian idealists have this false conception that you as a human can "fix" or change the ongoing natural climate change.

 So, as long as there is no ego involved... then we can make rational decisions on our future... or should all "future" subject discussion just be off limits because they don't take into consideration the futility of trying to stay alive in a hostile environment like space... so, if there is an ego involved.... its gonna be propaganda, it will be about making money off the sheople who blindly follow whatever the charismatic leader says to do.....


I agree, there may be nothing that humanity can do to stop the sky from falling... But nothing says we must help the process along.... except people like you.

Because Naomi Klein is NOT a scientist nor even a policy maker.

She writes books about her opinions on "Socialist Activism" and ideology.

You bet I am going to deny the propaganda she perpetuates.

Naomi Klein (born May 8, 1970) is a Canadian author and social activist known for her political analyses and criticism of corporate globalization.[1] She is best known for No Logo, a book that went on to become an international bestseller, and The Shock Doctrine, a critical analysis of the history of neoliberal economics.

Wow, social activist, socialist activist, potato, tomahto, you know, same thing. Lol.

No I haven't.

Is The Chief trying to say he buys books that are authored only by scientists or policy makers?

I made an effort to answer your questions.


No Sketch, you did not attempt to answer my question. You said what the graphs showed, but in no way touched on my question. I asked you to explain why the graphs were relevant.

I can read the graphs, which is what all your "answer" did--regurgitate the information in the graphs, they show downward trend lines for 12-18 years. I asked why those graphs had any merit.

But, if you are fine with your vapid answer, then you'll be fine with my answer too:

I already answered your question.

I am not going to link to it. Why should I, you never linked to the answer you said you authored.

The debate about climate change has been going on for so long,
and the arguments against climate change have been repeated so many times,
they've been given numbers.

A mistake often made on this thread is expecting to have either a reasonable or rational discussion with someone who does not share that goal.

The odd and troubling thing about this stance is not just that it prevents action. It’s also profoundly unconservative. If there was ever a radical project, monkeying with the climate would surely qualify. Had the Soviet Union built secret factories to pour carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and threatened to raise the sea level and subvert the Grain Belt, the prevailing conservative response would have been: Bomb them. Bomb them back to the Holocene—to the 10,000-year period of climatic stability now unraveling, the period that underwrote the rise of human civilization that conservatism has taken as its duty to protect. Conservatism has always stressed stability and continuity; since Burke, the watchwords have been tradition, authority, heritage. The globally averaged temperature of the planet has been 57 degrees, give or take, for most of human history; we know that works, that it allows the world we have enjoyed. Now, the finest minds, using the finest equipment, tell us that it’s headed toward 61 or 62 or 63 degrees unless we rapidly leave fossil fuel behind, and that, in the words of NASA scientists, this new world won’t be “similar to that on which civilization developed and to which life on earth is adapted.” Conservatives should be leading the desperate fight to preserve the earth we were born on.

I have ZERO expectation of seeing a reasonable or rational discussion from the unreasonable and the irrational ... the deniers.

I myself have learned a lot on this thread, so I am only talking about someone who intentionally is consistently uninterested in that. Of course
provocations stir up emotion and response, but here it often seems to foul up and sidetrack too much of the whole thread, focusing on outlying issues.
