what warming? no warming for 15 years, look it up, and all those wind mills provide less than 1% of our electricity.

Why?

WHY CAN'T YOU TELL EVERYONE ABOUT YOUR UNICORN FARM, LIBTARD??

Come on.

Tell EVERYONE about your windmill.

You libturds are SOOOOOO pathetic.

Wipe your own.

DO SOMETHING.

Start with thinking.

Then build you magical rainbow farm with THOUSANDS of year old tech.

No one can be so dumb (other than the partisan libtards) to believe that's the future.

"Where are your sources for recent volcanic eruptions giving us more CO2 than all human history? "

All over.

Are you so stupid you're incapable of watching the news?

WHY?

YEs, truthmonger, we're all debt slaves to a fake monetary system beause of a debt that can never be mathmatically be paid back because it intrinsically does not exist. Endless wars are good for you, NSA spying on you is for your own good. When the currency bubble pops the great depression will look like a picnic.

Truth be known it doesn't matter one squat what the little dot on the earth's surface, called the United States of America, does to combat any "global warming". The rest of the world goes about their business and doesn't give a hoot about any falsely manufactured warnings by the tree huggers. We, the USA, are not as important as many of you tend to believe. And to you Citizen, your comment to WarrenP about Santa being alive, you are 100% correct, he resides in the White House "sometimes" on vacation and the golf course the rest of the time, you were spot on and yes WP is still a moron.

I don't know how people can live with themselves believing so many falsehoods. Politics turns my stomach. I can't do the MSNBC or Fox. All they do is spin the blame on "the other". It's sickening.

Wake up folks and think for yourselves!

In the global warming debate, both sides make some good points. Overall, there are much bigger issues facing humanity than Global warming

liemonger-

Where are your sources for recent volcanic eruptions giving us more CO2 than all human history?

We didn't "cover" that already, unless you mean "Rush Limbaugh's scientist friend said it--so it must be absolutely true."

Maybe that's why it wasn't pointed out. We've been coming out of the last ice age for over 10,000 years now, and the Earth's climate has flip-flopped like this for a very long time. Why?

Turns out that 5 to 10,000 years ago, the Earth was warmer than it is now. It also turns out that changes in the amount of summertime sunlight striking the Northern Hemisphere due to changes in the Earth's orbital orientation toward the sun is chiefly responsible for the recent alternation between Ice Ages and warmer periods like the one we're currently in.

Don't scientists talk to each other? Why aren't the earth tilting on its axis guys given equal air time?

Just read the latest report on global warming. Top notch scientists are 95% sure that the activities of mankind are heating up the planet,because they've been studying this since 1990, yet they say in the same breath that there has been no rise in global temperatures in the last 15 years.

They say,that's because all that heat is being sucked into the bottom of the world's oceans,coincidentally, right where no one can check on their hypothesis,so none can offer proof.

Apparently,a little known scientific fact is that warm water is less dense than cold water,and therefore rises to the top of the World's oceans, therefore we should see a rise in ocean surface temperatures. They seem to have forgotten this point,which supports their arguments.

Surprise! We do. In fact,we can go back to the late 1800's and see that for at least the last 150 years ocean temperatures have been on the upswing.

Long before the automobile,the advanced industrial age,mass fossil fuel usage. Maybe

"There is no peer-reviewed scientific evidence that one volcano emits (has emitted in recent history) more CO2 than all of humanity for a day or month or year or decade or in all of history."

We covered that.

We covered the IPCC.

We covered hiding the decline.

HOW'S YOUR UNICORN FARM DOING, LIBTARD?

I was wrong on Venezuela's cost of a gallon. It's actually .06 cents a gallon, but they subsidize 90% of the cost, so it actually costs the socialists .60cents to get it to the pump. Why are we paying $4.00 almost 7X more for gas here in the land of the free market that does everything better and more efficient? And to make it worse, we're sitting atop more oil than the Middle East, shale oil, right? Let's lease all our land to BP if they give us .60 cents a gallon gasoline. That's setting the bar for a super competitive global corporation at the cost/efficiency of a socialist country in Latin America. Surely they could even do better (.30 cents)!

Blame everybody on earth except the capitalists. That makes sense. Didn't God blame the capitalists? "Root of all evil...love of money?"

The difference bewteen snopes answer and US geological is the ocean floor volcanoes. Still, it's less than 1% of fossil fuel CO2.

Who is more likely to lie, thousands of geologists who make about $100K whether or not their research proves or disproves their hypothesis or some isolated flunky scientist who works for the oil, gas, and coal lobby and makes millions of dollars every year?

Here's one that kills me about you morons--you blame liberals for high energy costs, but the cheapest energy costs on earth are found in nations with socialist governments and the highest are in places controlled by greedy capitalists.

Are you that thickheaded and brainwashed to ignore plain facts staring you in the face?

Get your facts straight. There is no peer-reviewed scientific evidence that one volcano emits (has emitted in recent history) more CO2 than all of humanity for a day or month or year or decade or in all of history.

snopes****: modern-day anthropogenic activities exhaust into the Earth’s air around 400 times as much CO2 as all the surficial volcanoes of the planet put together.

US Geological Survey: "Human activities release more than 130 times the amount of CO2 emitted by volcanoes."

The Iceland volcano eruption was estimated to have released less CO2 per day than a small modern country in Europe. Even if it erupted all day every day for a year it is < 1% compared to human pollution.

Tell 'em all about your unicorn farm.

Can't?

Why not LIE about like you did about your 40mm Glock?

Want to do something?

THEN DO IT.

Nah... nanny gubermant has to wipe for her.

ThomEE says,"long term benefits of using Energy Efficiency and renewables instead of constantly paying for energy" Do you actually think you won't be "constantly paying" for so called renewables? Don't you also know that coal, oil, and natural gas are also renewable? Do you think that whatever force made them, quit making them?

Yea.
