Tell us something everyone who is concerned doesn't already know. Anyone who is waiting for a political answer to global warming before they take personal action to cut their use of fossil fuels is a fool. It is the actions of millions of people consuming fossil fuel energy that is causing the problem. It has to be the actions of millions of people cutting and eliminating fossil fuel energy that will solve the problem.

The cost of inaction on climate change is huge. Present day policy of inaction has been heavily influenced by conspiracy theories and denial of basic science. Conspiracy theories and denial of basic science is not a rational base for sound policy. The costs of inaction far outweigh the costs of mitigation. As the old saying goes, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".

Polar bears. How cute! The population is thriving and they are just fine. "The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the polar bear population is currently at 20,000 to 25,000 bears, up from as low as 5,000-10,000 bears in the 1950s and 1960s. A 2002 U.S. Geological Survey of wildlife in the Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain noted that the polar bear populations 'may now be near historic highs,'"

It is time to stop this man made global warming propaganda.

The government has paid billions to get acadamiens to support this nonsense. These so called scientist have been bought. Industry has paid millions against the governments billions to expose this.

More nonsense from the 'true believers' in the greatest hoax in modern history. Someone forgot to tell this bunch that the evidence now shows the earth has been COOLING the last few decades. The earth warms and cools in cycles, based on solar conditions. And someone please tell these 'scientists' that so-called 'climate change' is only a theory, not scientific fact. There is no way to prove their theory. As with most things liberal, however, they simply keep repeating the big lie until people actually start to believe it. What a joke.

"Several populations - including children, the elderly, the sick, the poor, tribes and other indigenous people - are especially vulnerable to one or more aspects of climate change," the report said." This confirms it as a political scare study.

Not only were no reports issued while George W. Bush was president, scientists were threatened if they came out with evidence that supported global warming.

"The cost of inaction on climate change is huge."

The cost of trying to change a natural occurrence is even worse. How much does it cost to even ATTEMPT to lower the earths temperature 1/4 degree to where it was years ago and prove it will work.

This knee-jerk, the sky is falling, man is evil doomsayer mentality is bankrupting this country.

Hire a bunch of people who are stuffing their wallets at the global warming trough and guess what you are going to get for a result? Since there has been NO warming for the last 16 years there is no problem, still they find a way to issue another scare report. Hurricanes are at a 30-year historic low, Antarctic ice is at a high, and there has been no detectable warming of the seas. There is no problem, there is just a scam meant to line the pockets of the hypocrites (Al Gore, oil millionaire) who are pushing this agenda.
