Climate Change is real and caused by humans and these facts cannot be altered by any sort of twisted logic or name calling. It’s about time we started to address the problem.

Rush retracted his the false story immediately and is not as big of an idiot as I had thought he was. But then there are his listeners.

This hoax and fall-out is really amusing.

What do you think is the mounting evidence against AGW?

Serious scientists think it’s the other way:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_ opinion_on_climate_change
http://www.logicalscience.com/consensus/ consensusD1.htm

Are you a climate scientist with peer-reviewed research to look at? If you’re sick, do you consult medical doctors or astrologists? If you want to know about climate science, do you consult real climate scientists or medical doctors?

Nobody else mentioned Gore before in this thread. What does he have to do with any of this?

The “environmental socialist movement”? Does that include (just it pick a few):

– Mike Bloomberg, Mayor of NYC
– Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of CA
– John McCain (R, AZ)
– (many) Silicon Valley executives and venture capitalists

– Ron Oxburgh, the ex-Chairman of Shell
– the UK Royal Society

They might be amused to be so labeled…

Its an act of desperation by members of the global “environmental socialist” movement — plain and simple!

He corrected immediatley after coming off break. Time for correction from Rush was about 90 seconds.

He then ”suspended” himself for a day as self-imposed punishment for being hoaxed. Friday, he served his punishment! Sorry inkstain, you should have been listening. Or, were you? So just click off your clock, you missed the whole event!
