Alternative energy is being developed and will continue to be developed. If the seas rise man will move inland or build dikes. CO2 is a natural gas and the plants need it to live. Even at that CO2 still is only 1/3 of 1 percent of our atmosphere. Let’s all take a deep breath.

Currents flowing north from their caribbean origins in the atlantic raise the temperatures in the far northern hemisphere, which affects the polar ice cap, which then when melt actually cools the oceans.

The warming triggers a cooling effect in northern climates, which some can argue is occuring with regular sub-zero arctic fronts continuously sweeping into the mid-section of the US and even reaching into the south. The cooling is actually considered a by product of the warming. Ultimately, the warming, leads to cooling and then back into equilibrium. Even way….BOHICA (Bend over, here it comes again!)

Climateaudit has already shot holes in this latest fraud. Talk about a last hurrah. These “scientists” really have their backs to the wall. Their paymasters are probably coming up with “Scary movie 6″ with as much scientific validity as Gores first pointless effort.
Read CAs debunking of the data manipulation and invention used in this “story” Warmers before you get too tired & emotional.

There is warming. Fact. Now how do we deal with it. I can just see it now. 2050 and everyone is floating around Arkansas arguing whether the sea level rose and drowned their crops because of man made or natural causes.. Have fun in the future fellas.

Anyway you cant fix what is not broken. BTW its incredibly cold right now, a little global warming would be welcome.
