    This is really enraging the cons. Limbaugh said "Bye bye nomination" on his radio show and now Palin's flip-flopping on it is making the rounds as well. Romney seems to think he's the "lock" for the GOP nomination and doesn't care who he pisses off.

    I find it amusing that people thought he was electable in the first place.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think Chris Christie said something similar last week.

    So did Sarah Palin, that is before the Tea Party made it a plank in their platform to be against it. God damn Katie Couric and her GOTCHA journalism!

    Globalist 101: Carbon is poison, carbon is life, life = poison. The solution? Reduce life (carbon) on earth.

    It's bovine revenge. The cow farts are too blame. They figure even if it means moo-cow genocide, they will change the climate and kill off man. Better to kill yourself along with your adversary, then to end up on his plate.

    It's the cooowwwssss, maaaaaannnnnnnn!

    SP's second flipflop of the week? I know it's not worthy of its own thread but anyone notice the emails that were released this week? Specifically the one where she thought that anyone making a threat of shooting someone should be stripped of their Second Amendment rights? Bet that one's not gonna sit well with the Con crowd too.

    Fixed

    Is that the best they dug up from those 20,000 some odd emails? Wow.

    But yes, I did read the highlights of the Palin e-mails...but I had to stop because I was starting to really like her.

    He's a Moron. That alone equals doomed in the presidential race, considering that it's one of the sillier religions out there.

    Except CO2 is then captured by vegetation and stripped back out of the atmosphere.

    Yeah, but that carbon is in the form of CO2 which is reabsorbed by plants. Plants grew, died and turned into oil. Plants take Carbon Dioxide (one carbon and 2 oxygens) water (2 hydrogens and 1 oxygen) and convert it to via sunlight into food....locking up the C and releasing the 02 as oxygen. That oxygen is breathed in by animals, exhaled as carbon dioxide...repeat...

    Humans are the only animals* that take all that locked up carbon (oil) combine it with oxygen (just like when we breathe) and release Carbon Dioxide...if there were enough plants on the planet they would strip that CO2 out and balance out the Oxygen...But that's not possible now because humans are stripping the earth of the huge forests that do that for us...

    It's not that anyone can deny that we have increased CO2...nor can they deny that this has some impact globally...and would be a nice thing to halt...it's the level to which this is affecting the world...

    Romney is merely stating the WISEST thing anyone can...Don't deny it and don't label it as the ONLY cause...just say it is a % w/ out committing to a number...It's a cool move for a GOP guy


    *except for those damn beavers cutting down all our forests!

    She probably would've made a fine moderate candidate if she hadn't taken the right turn to Derpstown.

    What about every single animal that eats plants and converts them into methane?

    While it's true that the hypothesis that CO2 levels in the atmosphere lead to somewhat higher temperature has enough evidence behind it to be accepted, and that human industry has increased CO2 levels, neither of those two findings affects human societies in any significant way.

    They're not political issues unless we allow people like Romney to become involved. Any time a politician cites that science, his intentions become clear to anyone with half a brain. Please, please, conservatives, don't vote for Romney. If he wins. he's just going to keep this madness going (along with socialized medicine) and cause more harm to American industry and the overall economy.

    Libertarian minded opinion makers have no problem with allowing scientists the freedom to continue their research. The problem started when environmentalists who are against industry on principle hijacked this basic, and not very significant scientific finding and, sponsored by power hungry politicians, built an obviously false AGW theory that make some unscientific claims (which, recent evidence has proven, aren't just honest mistakes but amount to deliberate fraud):

    1. To know for a fact the exact amount of warming since the 19th century.
    2. To know for a fact or with high probability the future effects of projected CO2 and methane emissions (based on imperfect and contradictory computer models in which deliberately fraudulent data was introduced to begin with).
    3. To know for a fact the effects of warming on weather.
    4. The arbitrary claim, whenever a natural disaster occurs, that it's caused by global warming.

    He's a fucking Mormon. He'll say anything to appeal to people that "don't understand his greater truth" for their own good.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but from what I saw of historic temperature trends (I guess they look at rock or some shit) when you consider millions of years our planet is actually roughly 20 degrees cooler than the average (over those millions of years) right now. The reason the planet is slowly warming is we've been slowly coming out of an ice age over the last 10,000 years.

    I use to have a bunch of material on this, but don't have time to look for it now because I have to drive to Oregon. Just made sense to me.

    Global warming may be a sinking ship but dammit, Mitt Romney is still going to ride it to victory! Or sink. Definitely one or the other.
