    What do our GOP senators know that 31 science organizations do not?

      The GOP and conservatives are oftentime anti-intellectual. Scientists are effete liberal snobs? They ignore the science and opt for their world of fantasy instead. The truth is not what they want to hear, they would rather listen to the esteemed scientist Rush Limbaugh, instead. They become tools of corporate power that will stop at nothing to rape the earth for profit.

        What liberals have to learn is that science cannot determine a policy in ten or fifteen years  based on   millions   of  years in history , Is there global  warming sure !  Is it going to destroy the world as we know it in ten years ...............really !

        I believe in climate change , winter ,spring ,summer and  fall .

        I believe we need a science class that really matters for activists to actually have to pass in their learning grades  !

          And since when do you know more than the vast majority of the world's scientific experts on the topic?
          What makes you so sure that YOU are right and all the experts are wrong?

          Nobody says that the world will be destroyed in 10 years, but the trend is clear for anyone that wants to look.

          Is it no wonder that Trump says he adores the 'lesser educated'?

            31 scientists  cry out "global warming "    what about all the rest ?     If I  got a constant monetary drivel from  D.C.   in  $  study grants , I too could create a hugely  debatable issue to keep receiving that Government Subsidy money Too  and receive it for decades to come  .   Why do liberals so willingly destroy  the character of corporate America for receiving subsidized  welfare  yet  never admit  the very same hypocrisy for scientists studying the  color of frogs  eye's ? 

            How many tax dollars go to study something so scientifically  debatable as global  warming  ?   Any outcry from liberals there? .......................................Only crickets once  again!

        Are you saying we should believe one person rather than 31 science organizations?

          If you are saying it is only one person then you obviously didn't watch the video.

            I did until I got bored with him saying the same basic thing over and over again.

            Should I then believe several people over 31 science organizations representing tens of thousands of scientists?

              That PragerU is not a university but a rightwing advocacy group. I would take anything said by them with a grain of salt, a matter of fact, many grains of salt.

                For some people, a right-wing advocacy group is much more credible than 31 science organizations.

              Of course you did. Why listen to a scientist who does not share your deeply held apocalyptic religious beliefs? Depends on who pays their salaries. UN's IPCC.

                If 10 cardiologists diagnosed you with a heart condition and said you needed surgery or you would die within a year, and 2 cardiologists agreed you had the condition but that no action was required because the condition was just a naturally occuring cycle in your life, would you forego the surgery in favor of the minority?

                  Sorry to tell you but you are comparing apples to oranges. All cardiologists have the same understanding about how the heart works and what it is made of, there is zero debate on the way it functions.

                    Figures.  You all are so predictable.

                    Yes, there is plenty of debate about how the heart functions:  what makes it function best, what damages it, what is the best treatment for atherosclerosis, etc.  There is, however, consensus around certain treatments and best scenarios for prevention, just like there is with climate change.

      When NASA and most of the world science body warned of an ice age in the 1970's what happened?  Other than the fact that they were all wrong

      I have to ask the Conservatives why the difficulty in understanding the concept of climate change? Are they dupes for those greedy corporate types who want to regard the planet with its fragile ecosystem and finite resources as their own personal toilet, at the expense of the rest of us who have to live here?

        The climate changes constantly - it's called weather.  We understand it happens as it's always happened - man isn't influencing it as much as your team thinks so.  There is the difference.

    I read an article on the article about the 'global climate emergency' that wasn't really. It quoted several scientists in debunking the original article. One scientist stated that he liked to attribute changes in climate to human activity. I found that interesting. He liked. It doesn't sound very scientific to me.

    Global Cooling?  No wait, its Global Warming? 
    Umm, nope!  Let me think...
    Its Climate Change (PC), and it has the same political agenda as GC and GW for global government.

      Follow the money / it's all about control of energy, shifting huge profits from those who have it now (oil and gas) to those who want it (solar, etc)

        The shadow government has been around since like 1947 (?).  This is just crazy that's going on. Look at Drudge Report daily.
