Science is confident in claiming comet hits are imminent and have never said the same for a climate change crisis. They only agree it is real and only agree that a climate change crisis is still “likely”. The ultimate crisis needs certainty yet after 27 years there still isn’t one IPCC warning that isn’t qualified with “maybes”. Help my planet could be on fire maybe? Science didn’t lie, climate change believers and news editors and politicians did by claiming it “WILL” be a climate crisis.

I wonder if Al Gore will be taking his Private Jet to D.C. to demand that people change their ways and use less fuel?

I guess these people have the time away from their important jobs to take a lazy train to DC? Most of us have important work to do and use planes to save time. I think it's time to leave these backward thinking enviro-worshippers behind and move society forward with innovative energy technologies like fracking and nuclear. It could be any day that we're obliterated by a meteor so we need to advance ourselves as fast as we can to either overcome a powerful asteroid or colonize another planet. This kind of advancement will require much more energy than the methods the dirt worshipers tout. As we saw today, asteroids are the real threat, not the weather. Even if we aren't hit by an asteroid, the sun is going to eventually engulf the planet, so it's destruction cannot be avoided. We may as well use our planet while we have it.

I also think, before we make any changes, we need to verify the glacial cycle. This will require monitoring the climate for the next 100,000 years or so to verify the cycle. After this 100,000 years passes, we should compare against data from previous cycles and determine if the growth of humanity had any effect on the normal cycle. In fact this may require several more cycles to verify any change, say 300,000 - 500,000 years of monitoring. By this time, humanity should have mastered terraforming, rendering the original argument moot.

I will let my car idle needlessly in my driveway tonight in support of the earth train.

Studies show that federal lobbying is an extremely carbon-intensive activity and is believed to be one of the leading contributors to global climate change.

Earth to believers: You can't do too much about China right now, but quicker than you will ever be able to achieve change, President Blame will have finished decimating the economy in this country -thereby reducing America's "carbon foot print". & putting us back probably somewhere about the stone age.
