• Is this why the IPCC is so adamant about AGW?

    Under Article 39 of the UN Charter, the Security Council maintains the right to identify threats to international peace and security and to devise means to counter these threats. This is the Article that is being used to justify IPCC funding, and to circumvent the treaty process that failed with Kyoto. I am not arguing Global Warming. I do not... show more
    Under Article 39 of the UN Charter, the Security Council maintains the right to identify threats to international peace and security and to devise means to counter these threats. This is the Article that is being used to justify IPCC funding, and to circumvent the treaty process that failed with Kyoto. I am not arguing Global Warming. I do not want opinions about Global Warming. Do you think that using AGW as a "quasi-militaristic" threat is a good excuse for the U.N. to try to manipulate the economies of member nations and gain control of them? Do you trust the U.N. to run the economy of your country?

I have read countless accounts of what year was the warmest and second warmest ad nauseum, and no two are alike. I have heard that every year since 1998 was "the second warmest on record."

    The warmest year on record was 1934...no wait, that was 1998, 1934 was only the U.S., wait, NASA said different, well wait again.... I have read countless accounts of what year was the warmest and second warmest ad nauseum, and no two are alike. I have heard that every year since 1998 was "the second warmest on record." Clearly, according all data available that is only true if you measure from 1974 and cherry pick your data. Now, even though this past 3 months have averaged the coldest worldwide in the last 100 years, how long will it be before 2008 becomes the "second warmest year on record?" I would ask about 2007, but someone who is unable to look up temperature records has already made that dubious claim.

We now know, and can prove that the world is round. 150 years ago the consensus was that human beings could not travel faster than 90MPH due to the stresses on the human body. It would kill us. I know that is not true now because I live in Indianapolis and have been to the race. 75 years ago the consensus was that the speed of sound could not be broken. I have witnessed an F14 going through the speed of sound at an airshow last year. Has there been a scientific consensus that could not be proven at the time, that was later found to be the correct view when science advanced far enough? What was the consensus and what is the hard, scientific proof today?

All after are warmer. These graphs not only contradict the recent NASA revelation that 1934 was the hottest year on record, they contradict each other!!

It has been shown by scientists to be inaccurate, sensational, and mostly propaganda. On top of that, it is a MOVIE! You do not write a book report on Tom Sawyer by watching the movie, you cannot learn how to hotwire a car, rob a bank, build a bomb, or win the lottery by watching movies, even though all these things are depicted in movies. Do people really think they can go visit the treasure room shown in the movie "National Treasure?" Am I the only person that finds this hilarious?

The Federal Reserve prints it, and then "pays it out" to banks and lending institutions. Is this a Federal give away? Should I start a bank? It cannot be a loan, because a loan would have to be paid back, with interest, from the current pool of money. That would shrink the supply, not expand it. How does this cash get into circulation without having to be returned to the Feds? I have seen numerous answers about this, but none seem to directly address this question. Who has been paid this 565 billion dollars over the last 90 years in order to get this cash into circulation?

If two people, or even three or four want to get married to each other, and their is a church that sanctifies it, why does any one care? Muslims are allowed 4 wives, but not in the US. My religion has traditionally allowed homosexual unions and plural marriages, but this is not allowed. Does this mean the US Government is Choosing Christianity, and even a specific group within the Christian church as a benchmark for defining marriage. Doesn't this violate the Constitution?

    Are people stupid? Are they just too lazy to think? Do they realize that most GM engines, including the Duramax, are built by Isuzu? Most Fords are built in Mexico. Most Hondas and Toyotas are built in the USA. American "brands" just mean that the overpaid CEO is probably a US citizen and most of the workers are not.
