    Man that Obama Mansion on Nantucket is going to be wet! Unless of course he can keep the seas from rising.

    The earth has been naturally warming and cooling for billions of years, so automatically attributing relatively minute fluctuations in ice coverage to humanity's influence on the climate is rather a stretch. In all likelihood, the climatic fluctuations we've observed in recent times are the product of natural variation with some small contribution from humanity. Not saying we shouldn't be concerned or that we shouldn't attempt to mitigate our influence on the environment, but this whole "climate change" movement has gone way overboard.

    Good thing nobody has done that, eh?

    So you _feel_ that's true. That's nice. Just understand that other people rely on evidence instead of their feelings.

    Deniers literally don't understand the concept of "on a hill".

    But then, that's why they're deniers.

    Is the earth’s climate today ideal? If it was possible, could or should we manipulate the climate to create the most ideal world wide situation? Does anyone really believe we could do that?

    No. They are deniers because they possess basic common sense and haven’t been indoctrinated.

    On the night he was elected, he said that this was the moment the seas stopped rising. Now there’s a God complex.
