Your CO2 Climate Change crisis: Why are you climate blamers so anxious to fear monger our children when science has been saying it only “could be”, not “WILL be” a crisis for the last 28 years? Shame on all of you! Science didn't commit a hoax, YOU did!

Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant unless you believe that every time you exhale you're polluting the atmosphere. So if you do, stop breathing now.

Thought I'd get some of the usual out of the way first, so even though dentester beat me to the first item, here goes: We exhale carbon dioxide, so how can it be harmful? Climate scientists doctor their data to get government grants. The climate is always changing -- didn't the ice age melt away? And hey! Wasn't ice out later this year?

ARRey sez: No way! The climate has not changed since God created the earth a little over 2,000 years ago!

It's all a bunch of alarmist nonsense... when the fish all disappear, it won't be because of a warming of the planet... it will be because they swam over the edge of the planet.

Climates have changed since the earth was created. Nothing to see here except a bunch of "researchers" who will need millions of tax dollars trying to find a solution to a naturally occurring phenomenon.

Earth to DNR - the globe is in the midst of a 16-year plateau in temperatures. Read about it in the NY Times. Your ploy to get more tax money isn't flying wih thermometer observers.

You have to suspect a conspiracy of scientists, doctoring their data for Federal grants. This is only done, of course, to advance anti-everything liberal schemes to ruin all our fun and impose more anti-business laws on all of us patriotic Americans. This is obvious to everyone who knows scientific truth and can ignore any contrary data.
