Climate Change Report from the Pew Center

'The scientific community has reached a strong consensus regarding the science of global climate change. The world is undoubtedly warming, and the warming is largely the result of emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from human activities.'
Global Warming Basics | Pew Center on Global Climate Change: The Pew Center on Global Climate Change

It's scary how many lay people refuse to listen to the experts on climate change. Pull your heads out of the sand, people!!

So I take it that you would have agreed with the following since they were consensus opinions at the time if you lived in the era:

1. The Earth is flat

2. Blacks are only 1/8 a person and lack the mental proclivity of whites

3. There are witches and if you drown them they float

You are retarded! That's crazy to assume something is true because the majority believes it. I feel sorry for you.

Mr. C, feel free to reject the consensus of the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of (credible) international climate scientists in favor of the opinions of a former architect with zero education in climate science. It's a free country, and you can believe whatever silliness satisfies your ideological proclivities. And you can call those who accept the mountains of scientific evidence of human-caused climate change "sheeple" if you wish, but be certain that you don't do a thing to enhance your credibility.

Now I'm going to slip a copy of Dylan's "Blood On the Tracks" album into the CD player. While I love the entire album, I'm gonna jump to a track that seems so appropriate right now: "Idiot Wind".

Hey, are we in The Eddy? Oopsie...

Yes, Mikey, I pay extra for wind-generated electricity, switched to CFLs years ago, carpool whenever possible, try to keep my car and truck below 3000 rpm, turn the thermostat down to 55 at night and 62 during the day, insulated the piss out of my house, installed killer insulated window coverings, bought a super-insulated high-efficiency water heater, keep my woodburning down to a bare minimum, weather stripped and caulked, and will buy a hybrid as soon as I can afford it, as well as solar water/electricity.

Oh yeah, spent a ton on quality, insulated windows throughout the house.

For the record, I never called anyone an idiot. Glad you're back from exile!
