Seriously ?

At the climate change conference yesterday, Obama said "climate change is a bigger threat than ISIS". I'm sure the French agree. Are all the people in his administration afraid to tell him that the Earth has been undergoing warming and cooling phases for a billion years, long before human interaction? I think this bozo has some serious mental issues.

I cant even begin to argue with the stupidity you spit here. It is a proven fact for all but repubs that climate change is real. Please, educate yourself before spewing moronic stuff on public boards.

What we have here is the inability to comprehend English. No one said climate change is not real. The earth has been undergoing

cooling and warming phases for a billion years, so it is real. The problem is in the math. You Loonies seem to forget that humans have only appeared on Earth in a small fraction of that time and began using fossil fuels in a tiny fraction of that time.

My advice is to put the Kool-Aid down, give your brain time to clear and research the Earth's history of climate change (long before man appeared on Earth).

And you only use a tiny fraction of your brain if you think your multiple screen names confuse anyone but yourself.

I have news for you D**ba**es. Climate change is a bigger threat than ISIS. The warming of Earth by a few degrees will produce catastrophic changes, which will result in displacement and deaths of hundreds of millions, maybe billions of people, along with epic economic distuptions. ISIS is a problem but not on that scale.

Before you even think about responding with your usual snot-nosed remarks, read the latest science.

I don't know how to make this any more clearer. Please read carefully: Climate change is NOT man-made. The earth has been undergoing warming and cooling phases for a billion years, long before humans existed on the planet. The earth will continue to undergo these warming and cooling phases regardless of what we humans do or don't do.

If you're unable to comprehend this then I can't help you.

Virtually every knowledgeable scientist in the world disagrees with you. Climate change is happening because of all the carbon we're dumping into the atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels. Your stupid argument is like saying step in front of a moving bus, you're going to die anyway, eventually. It has been said before but it bears repeating . . .

You're an idiot.

I Googled "Has the earth been undergoing cooling and warming phases for the last billion years? There are many articles on Google concerning this subject and all of them say the same thing, Yes. There's no question that climate change can't be man-made since warming and cooling phases have been occurring for over a billion years, long before humans existed.

Stupid,

Your body temperature fluctuates constantly. One hour, it may be 98.6, take your temperature an hour later, it may be 98, an hour after that it may be 99.5. This is true regardless of what you do or don't do. It can even be 101, 102, 103 or a little higher, and it won't kill you. Or it can be as low as 95 or 96, and you'll survive.

But you don't deliberately infect yourself, and run your temperature up to 107, because if you do, you won't survive. Your extreme right wing ideology doesn't change the facts, or the science, which relies on the facts.

Is that clear enough for you, Stupid?

That's like saying the arsenic won't kill you because you only took it a minute ago.

We only began using fossil fuels a short time ago, geologically. Exactly right, Stupid. That's why climate change is happening now.

People's arteries harden over time. That doesn't mean that you can't accelerate the process by eating too much fatty food.

People get lung cancer. That doesn't mean that you can't give yourself lung cancer by smoking.

People's bank accounts get low. That doesn't mean that you should just spend all your money and not worry about it.

Earth's average temperature varies over time. That doesn't mean that we can't blow temperatures through the roof by burning fossil fuels.

Of course, you don't cite any of the "articles on Google," and you definitely don't cite any of the scientific literature, such as from the IPCC or NOAA, which address this subject in detail, and explain why you're dead wrong.

In case you want to read any reliable sources on the subject, here are some links for you to follow, since apparently you weren't able to find them yourself.

http://ossfoundation.us/projects/environment/global-warming/natural-cycle

http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2000/ast20oct_1/(note that this is from 2000, when we had less evidence than we have now)

http://www.skepticalscience.com/global-warming-natural-cycle.htm

See also the 2014 IPCC report, which is a pdf file. https://www.ipcc.ch/pdf/assessment-report/ar5/syr/AR5_SYR_FINAL_SPM.pdf

It bears repeating:

You're an idiot.

A classic example of not seeing the forest for the trees. After Barry boards the Grayhound bus back to Chicago, and Trump is our president, you'll suddenly see that the earth is no longer melting. Then I want you to slap yourself in the face for voting for the worst president in history....twice.

Yes, Stupid, seriously. It's called an analogy. People who know how to think intelligently use them. Regularly. "Analogical reasoning is fundamental to human thought." [http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/reasoning-analogy/] See also:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analogy

Your argument, 2Stupid4Words, a/k/a Not-a-Patriot, a/k/a JudyToo, is that climate change can't be human-caused because temperatures fluctuate all the time. Body temperatures fluctuate all the time too, but that doesn't mean you should infect yourself, and run your temperature up to 107. If you do that, you'll die. If you don't understand why the analogy applies to climate change and crushes your argument, then, as we already know . . .

You're an idiot.

Wrong as always, Stupid. Climate change is based on long-term trends (forest). You're the idiots who think that every time it snows (trees), there's no climate change.

Analogies are important tools of the mind. If you had a functioning mind, you might know how to use them.

And by the way . . .

You're an idiot.

Body temperature is an analogy to a bogus leftist theory to kill the Keystone Pipeline and promote windmills and solar panels? That's a

stretch.

John Coleman is a weatherman, not a climate scientist. If you want reality, read the scientific literature.

You won't because you're not interested in reality. You only want things that tell you that you're right.

Dear Divorced-from-Reality:

If reading is too much for you, watch this video from someone who actually understands climate change.

If that is too complicated for you, then try these.

And if you want to learn why you don't understand it, then watch this.
