The Washington Post's Charles Krauthammer, writes, "If climate science is settled, why do its predictions keep changing? And how is it that the great physicist Freeman Dyson, who did some climate research in the late 1970s, thinks today's climate-change Cassandras are hopelessly mistaken? ... Climate-change proponents have made their cause a matter of fealty and faith. For folks who pretend to be brave carriers of the scientific ethic, there's more than a tinge of religion in their jeremiads."
Yet another reason not to trust climate change alarmists.

There are plenty of ways to check Puls' conclusions, including www dot climatedepot dot com, which provides links to the papers and work of climatologists and other scientists who take a decidedly different position from that of the climate change crowd. Some note the pressure placed on them to conform to the "faith" in order to receive government subsidies and donations from foundations and wealthy individuals. Climate change is a fact? Don't think so.
German meteorologist Klaus-Eckart Puls goes further. He has written that contrary to the alarmists' claims of melting polar ice caps and rising sea levels, the rise in sea levels has declined 34 percent over the last decade. His report, which analyzed satellite data from TOPEX and JASON-1 and JASON-2 missions studying global ocean topography, concluded that the sea level rise has "slowed down significantly," and that "...it should not be speculated on whether the deceleration in the rise is a trend or if it is only noise. What is certain is that there is neither a 'dramatic' rise, nor an 'acceleration'. Conclusion: Climate models that project an acceleration over the last 20 years are wrong."

Professor Tol, writes Globalwarming****, recently "accused the IPCC of being too alarmist about global warming and asked to have his name withdrawn from its recently released Working Group II report (WG2) on climate change impacts." In a recent article for the Financial Times titled "Bogus prophecies of doom will not fix the climate," Tol explains why, "Humans are a tough and adaptable species. People live on the equator and in the Arctic, in the desert and in the rainforest. We survived the ice ages with primitive technologies. The idea that climate change poses an existential threat to humankind is laughable."
FACTS for those who cannot find them: one might think there is unanimity of opinion on the subject by panel members. Maybe that's true of current members of the panel, but it is instructive to read the comments by former IPCC member Richard Tol, who, among other things, is professor of the Economics of Climate Change, Institute for Environmental Studies and Department of Spatial Economics, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. Even these "scientists" are NOT agreeing!
conservativedad did exactly what I predicted; avoid the FACTS; don't discuss and PROVE what you're saying, and totally 'change the subject' to whether I am a christian or not. Even though I've never said I was or was not! True liberal double speak and nonsense. THAT is why the left is not credible anymore; they're lack of real facts and knowledge destroys them.
May as well stay consistent in going backwards. Anything worth doing is worth doing wrong. Right?

We need a new law which would outlaw old stale laws which are no longer relevant to today. But whatever we do we need to keep restricting those who abide by laws and leave the lawless alone. Especially illegal immigrants.
Name calling gets you nowhere, truthie. You're an embarrassment to every Christian.
There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws. – Ayn Rand
NEVER open to immorality, frauds, scams and dishonest progressives who deceive people for their own personal gain wealth-wise. And global warming is a humongous Madoff scheme to enrich the already wealthy Al Gores' of the world by taxing all the poor.

LOL. Uh, homosexuals are NOT a race! Your liberal education failed you!
Obviously you are gullible and can't think for yourself. Times are changing isn't a REASON to hop on board with idiots. Well, apparently it's enough for you.
When scamming fake scientists do everything to keep REAL scientists quiet so gullible folks won't hear the TRUTH; yeah, a red flag should go up for you that something is amiss; but unless one has the 'intelligence' to search FACTS instead of 'feewings' like left does; you would be taken in by anything thrown your way. Emotions rule the left; logic and truth and facts rule the rest of us! Enjoy your trip to nowhere land!
I honestly laugh at your posts...
1)IGNORE my comment that the democrats own the senate AND oval office, while republicans own just the house.
2) IGNORE scientific research
3) IGNORE that fact that I respect the conservatives on their financial ideas.
Are you just ignorant to everything except what people have brainwashed into your head for the last 50+ years?
Can you honestly say that you don't believe the work of scientists around the world? Don't believe every human being should be offered the same rights...be they man, woman, homosexual, or of any race? Do you not believe in cutting edge research? This country needs people to come together. Don't simply bash the opposing side because they are the opposing side. Have an open mind, be open to new ideas.
"The times they are a changing"...get on board.

Oh, no worries "numbering lib", 123456789. BTW; not very creative for a leftie are you?
I have a WONDERFUL LIFE! It's the left in here that are always angry, depressing, sending nothing but dark warnings about skies falling, water drying up, hailstorms and brimstone. Geez; perhaps YOU all should get outside and SEE that sun shine rather than talk gloomingly about how you think it's never going to shine again. lolol.
Happiness is a state of mind that YOU decide on. Or stay negative, gloomy and depressing like the lefties. EEW...no one wants that.
LOL. Funny one Jester...you just proved my point at how 'clueless' the left is about weather. You didn't know that it turns cold in winter and turns warmer in Spring? And yes, Spring brings on 'allergies' because 'p-o-l-l-e-n' count is high...due to trees, grass, plants Growing. WOW: REALITY, what a concept says the left. Oops, I think they must be wakening from their stupor...or I could be wrong. Depends on how more clueless the left's next comments are.
Just helping slow learners THINK!

Special announcement just for 123456789: Republican and Tea Party businessman beat out two democrats in most recent elections in Florida/Texas.
Aw****..guess dems heyday is OVER!
Funny one 123456789. At least we know you can count. lol.
But you know nothing about politics. Conservatives already beat democrats in two states elections. Wake up. Try actually keeping up with CURRENT EVENTS. Just throwing out lies isn't working for left any longer.... obviously you did not get the new DNC memo on that!
LOL. SOmeone in here hasn't kept up with politics and the news.
Florida AND Texas already had an election.
Sad for democrats as they lost one of these elections to a Tea Party member and the other to a Republican.
Democrat supporters are DWINDLING. Democrat LIES and DECEIT have caught up to them. Enough is enough and Americans have seen, heard and felt enough of liberal job killing policies; forced Obamacare; fees, taxes and lies lies lies! On July 1, 2014; Obama changes Currency laws, preventing YOU from taking any amount of cash from your own bank accounts that you want. DNC is finished; they destroyed themselves by arrogance, greed and LIES!

Truthseeker, you speak in great length of the liberals, the "left," and democrats. Maybe you should put that effort into rallying your party to defeat the "left." Because at this point the Republicans stink at politics. While they may have solid economic ideas, it is 2014. Science, equality of rights, and social issues win out year after year. Politics is a competition. You're losing.
Truthseether: You seem very chipper. Whatever you're taking I need some. These allergies are killing my energy level so far this Spring. Wait a minute, it's getting warmer outside. Could it be...........? Nah.
Oh wait. Maybe I should just burn all my trash instead. People down-wind in D.C. won't care.
