Science does not respect consensus. There was once widespread agreement about phlogiston (a nonexistent element said to be a crucial part of combustion), eugenics, the impossibility of continental drift, the idea that genes were made of protein (not DNA) and stomach ulcers were caused by stress, and so forth—all of which proved false. Science, Richard Feyman once said, is “the belief in the ignorance of experts.” Global Warming falls into this category too.
Rickaroo - I am not a skeptic - I believe in science. There hasn't been any debate about the science. My problem is that all the climate models that the 97% climate scientists have developed have been wrong. I believe in facts and statistics - man affects the climate. Some through heat islands in cities. Some through soot pollution. CO2 does not appear to effect the climate - it is a beneficial gas. Our government and the UN are willing to bankrupt the world for climate change.
Rickaroo - I enjoyed reading your response - now, please tell me which climate models reflect what truly has been recorded. There are none that I have seen. The 97% of climate scientist that agree with AGW is another bull that has been perpetrated. Anticorp - I am dead set against the economic fascism that exists today between the giant corporations and government. Their goal is to drive out the entrepreneurs and smaller corporations so they have no competition. Please don't call me a corporatist.
The Flat Earth Society is made up of the warmists that believe man has caused global warming. Science and records tell a different story. Average global temperature has stayed steady or fallen over the last 15 years, tornadoes and hurricanes are way down. Scientists in Japan and Russia believe we are on the edge of a cooling period. Climate models have been proven wrong every single time - yet people like Pam believe like flat earthers - the sky is falling.
Einstein Von Braun and our ancestors came to America legally. Big difference
I have no problem with two people of the same sex that want to be together. I have no problem with equal treatment under the law. I do have a problem with making the term marriage the same for hetero and homosexual people that want to be together. My biggest concern is the same as Drew's - individual liberty. Will privately owned companies that have a religious issue against same sex marriage be forced to take their business. In particular, I'm talking about wedding photographers and bakeries. Me personally, I would take the business - but I don't believe that a company should be forced to, it should be their choice
Not often you can say something good about our ruling class in DC
You can almost always trust government to waste taxpayer money on boondoggles. I try and fly out of CHA whenever it makes sense, however, that's less than half the time.
Bipartisanship is not always good. It has put us over 16,000,000,000,000 in debt and forced many bad laws upon Americans.
Good luck fighting the special interests in making any Farm Bill effective. In fact, why does there need to be a farm bill at all?
