About the author



  • People who cannot hold a rational argument should not be able to hold a position of power, this is ridiculous.

  • In most places on Earth climate change is an accepted fact, in usa they are discussing if it still real…and you wonder why the world hates you.

  • Sorry, but when NASA releases evidence that proves climate change is drastically increasing due to human activity, it's going to be hard to pursuade me otherwise.

  • Notice the Senator filibusters the testimony before the answers could be given.
    If you ask a question then you should allow the answer. Or don't ask the question.

  • Ron Johnson has proven himself incompetent and stupid throughout his career. Nothing surprising about how idiotic his statements are. Is he gone yet?

  • Trump must play to his base, the Kock Bros. and Wall Street jack offs, etc, who denies what is good for our country and good for their wallets….

  • These discussions between scientists and climate change deniers are sad to watch. Where do they get the nerve to assume they have the same knowledge. You dont behave that way when talking to a doctor or a pilot or a lawyer. Or is it just stupidity.

  • Just another Chicken Little Climate Change Turd Salesman, A TURD NEVER sells its self , you need someone out there pushing that TURD, the sky is falling THE SKY IS FALLING!

  • sea level rise is the least of our worries from climate change. we'll survive as a species if all the cities on the coast are destroyed. but in 50 or 100 years there wont be oxygen in the atmosphere to breath according to some models, and we will not survive that. we will have destroyed nearly all animal life on earth.

    republicans are either too dumb or too egotistical to admit this. they are unwilling to admit that they and their leaders are simply wrong. they have invested, doubled-down, and completely bought into partisanship over reality. there is no rational argument that will change their minds.

    we need to stop trying to convince them. its time to bypass them. we are in a war for the survival of our species, and the GOP is the only enemy.

  • Why do such eminent scientists bother to debate venal politicians who have absolutely no interest in establishing truths? Politicians merely argue the position of the side that pays for their support.

  • who in the world vote for these kind of senators? they must be right wing morons, uneducated low life creatures. they are simply stupid

  • If the climate change deniers stand in the way of steps being taken to mitigate man's effect on climate change, they are grossly and criminally irresponsible.

  • The tea party is good for some things – like protecting against warrantless wiretaps, but God help us if we rely on them for science

  • If you want to see the worst debate group on Facebook full of climate change deniers then head over to American Political Debate

  • Greenpeace is not a scientific group WTF does that have to do with it? And there's no glaciers in Wisconsin?! Just cuz the temp is not going up every single day these idiots think its a joke.

  • You know why I can't get on board with the climate change folks?  Because they are hypocrites.  They preach how much we need to go reusable and green.  It's their mantra.  They hammer us over the head with it.  And then they totally ignore their own argument.  Caser in point.  I had the displeasure of having to spend two weeks in Cali at the beginning of Oct.  While driving from Mojave to the Central Valley, I noticed all the windmills in farms along 58.  Hundreds of them.  All over the place.  On a pretty breezy day.  And no more than 10{2926adbe9d5efe15cdd71803f3adbd0753091c5491a4687b622765a0a93bb12e} of them were turning.  Driving back 2 weeks later, same thing.  Good air, and maybe 25{2926adbe9d5efe15cdd71803f3adbd0753091c5491a4687b622765a0a93bb12e} of them were turning.  Ran through Texas on the way back.  No more windy that it was in Cali.  All the windmills they have along 40?  Hundreds of them…turning.  Same in Oklahoma.  Windmills out the wazoo…ALL turning!  Last time I checked, TX and OK were "conservative", "Republican" climate change denying states…yet, they were outperforming the eat, drink, and crap GREEN holier than thou Cali, wind farms by a ton!  Greenies, you want people to join you?  Then perform!  Running your mouths alone…just doesn't cut it anymore.

  • All i ask from this religion is a predictive model that works over an extended period of time.

    #Badscience is still bad science when unselective predictions dont follow reality.

  • Looks like we are missing a critical piece in the mix: Pollution. How do you have a civilized society with the chronic disease alone from breathing poison is prevailing. It's contributing to draining of resources. Add in the free for all food systems that can't hardly be called food anymore. Lots coming to a head in the next 10 to 20 years. We can continue with the unworkability we put up with.
