    I'll tell you what you guys put up a candidate for president denying AGW in 2012 and make all of us happy!

    Palin fits the bill!!!

    "Sarah Palin | Facebook.

    The response to my op-ed by global warming alarmists has been interesting. Former Vice President Al Gore has called me a “denier” and informs us that climate change is “a principle in physics. It’s like gravity. It exists.”

    Perhaps he’s right. Climate change is like gravity – a naturally occurring phenomenon that existed long before, and will exist long after, any governmental attempts to affect it."

    Go Palin!!!!!
    Problem is many of the deniers are former GW scientist.

Is global warming caused by man, or is it simply natural climatic shifts? That I do not know.
    Well, the Earth has been warmer in the past, and long before the industrial revolution, so...

    In fact, the warmest period we have records of happened around 1100 B.C., far before human industrialization. These things happen all the time, climate change is cyclical and has nothing to do with us.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Most weathermen believe that el nino is the cause for the unusual weather patterns affecting the world today.

    Look at the winter olympics in vancouver, canada. No snow.

    How many is "many"? Two? Twenty? If they are former GW scientists (whatever that is) what are they doing now?

    Re: Is Global Warming a myth?

    The debate among the "rational" about man's role in global warming was put to rest in 2005:

    "The strongest evidence yet that global warming has been triggered by human activity has emerged from a major study of rising temperatures in the world’s oceans.

    The present trend of warmer sea temperatures, which have risen by an average of half a degree Celsius (0.9F) over the past 40 years, can be explained only if greenhouse gas emissions are responsible, new research has revealed.

    The results are so compelling that they should end controversy about the causes of climate change, one of the scientists who led the study said yesterday.

    "The debate about whether there is a global warming signal now is over, at least for rational people," said Tim Barnett, of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California. "The models got it right. If a politician stands up and says the uncertainty is too great to believe these models, that is no longer tenable."

    In the study, Dr Barnett’s team examined more than seven million observations of temperature, salinity and other variables in the world’s oceans, collected by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and compared the patterns with those that are predicted by computer models of various potential causes of climate change.

    It found that natural variation in the Earth’s climate, or changes in solar activity or volcanic eruptions, which have been suggested as alternative explanations for rising temperatures, could not explain the data collected in the real world. Models based on man-made emissions of greenhouse gases, however, matched the observations almost precisely."

    Thats great one scientist says it so it is fact.


    You want to avoid all the lies and fraud and corruption that is being revealed. This new evidence shows no GW promoters have any credibility.

    Except when the models don't match, like the last decade.

    Would you fly in an airplane if you knew the dynamic model said applying the engine thrust reversers would make the airplane go faster?

    No?

    But you're willing to stake the economies of nations on a computer model that says "hotter" when nature is saying "colder"?
