Poll: Who should be in the Environmental Hall of Fame?

Hall of Fame Nominees:

>Bill McKibben: He is the founder of 350.org , an international grassroots organization whose goal is to raise awareness about anthropogenic climate change, to confront climate change denial, and to cut CO2 levels to 350 ppm in order to minimize the damage from global warming. His weekly newsletter keeps followers updated on the latest research and issues in climate science.

His Award should be many new members, so please check out his newsletter.

>Kevin Cowtan and Robert G. Way: They found the ‘missing heat’ in the climate system, casting doubt on suggestions that global warming has slowed or stopped over the past decade.

Their Award should be the acclaim of having a link to their paper attached to every article which says: “Global warming has stopped”.

>The Candu Engineers: They designed the Candu nuclear reactor to run on thorium. The reactors are very fuel efficient and have been adapted to use thorium in existing reactors that already have regulatoryapproval. Award ??

>Sen. Bernie Sanders: He a strong advocate for reducing our carbon emissions. He told Senator Jim Inhofe; “The bottom line is when Senator Inhofe says global warming is a hoax, he is just dead wrong”, adding “The CO2 in the atmosphere is increasing, the temperature of the Earth is rising, the oceans are becoming more acidic,glaciers and polar ice caps are melting, sea levels are rising, and the the probability of severe weather events is increasing". Award?

Update:

Sorry about the multiple posts. I went back three times to correct errors in it posted them all.

    Sagebrush is lying again, Sanders is a self-described democratic socialist. [1]

    Bernie Sanders is a Communist. He is a big man with the greenies.

    He addressed claims made by fellow Senator Jim Inhofe; “The bottom line is when Senator Inhofe says global warming is a hoax, he is just dead wrong”, adding “research shows the climate is changing in response to man’s activities. The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is increasing, the temperature of the Earth is rising, the oceans are becoming more acidic, glaciers and polar ice caps are melting, sea levels are rising, the probability of severe weather events is increasing, and weather-related natural disasters are becoming more frequent and more costly “.

    "The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is increasing" So what?

    "the temperature of the Earth is rising." No it is not. Dirty boldfaced lie.

    Or is he referring to :

    http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/10/30/ho...

    0.87 degrees in 353 years. I can most certainly tell you that Bernie's body temperature has fluctuated more than that.

    "the oceans are becoming more acidic" So is my stomach when I read this stuff. But anyway, so what?

    "glaciers and polar ice caps are melting" So what?! They do that every year. And crappy scientists get stuck in ice in the summertime in Antarctica. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

    "sea levels are rising" The sea is the same level as it was when the Pilgrims landed.

    "the probability of severe weather events is increasing" Probability? He is scaring us with probabilities that will never come true?

    "are becoming more frequent and more costly “. How many hurricanes have struck the US since the year of Katrina? So in fact they are less frequent and this is a dirty boldface lie. More costly?! Sandy, which wasn't a hurricane when it hit land caused more monetary damage than most hurricanes. So the cost is not the intensity but where the storm lands.

    Bernie, the hero of the greenies, gets on the floor of our legislatures and lies, distorts facts, makes claims that are non-issues and creates impressions of calamity on events that have happened since before man lit his first match.

    BTW he forgot farmer Brown's chickens stopped laying and his Aunt Josephine's hang nail started growing faster.

    Here we have the supreme example of a great greenie. Creates a crises out of natural events for his own agenda. This man is the HERO of the greenies and he is a proven liar and calamity howler. They want to promote him to the Hall of Fame!
