The pace of global warming is likely to be much faster than recent predictions, because industrial greenhouse gas emissions have increased more quickly than expected and higher temperatures are triggering self-reinforcing feedback mechanisms in global...

Talk about circular reasoning and being oblivious to reality. Because they think CO2 can change climate, therefore because CO2 levels are rising faster than they thought...it will get warm...in spite of it being cold.

Climate science must be very much like the Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

I feel sorry for the scientists involved in showing the true facts while being ignored by less informed skeptics!!!

There are a wealth of "before and after" photos showing so clearly that glaciers and other ice formations are receding at a truly alarming rate. And future generations will only know "the snows of Kilimanjaro" through reading old history texts.

The snows of Kili disappeared because of a shift in rain pattern and deforestation of its slopes. There seems to be recovery happening.

Sympathizing with those actively involved in perpetuating a fraud...like James Hansen, is like sympathy for the devil. He has been handsomely rewarded for his fiddling with data and inflammatory speeches. Below is just the first of many.

You should save your sympathy for the truth tellers fired for it.

"Sympathizing with those actively involved in perpetuating a fraud...is like sympathy for the devil." "You should save your sympathy for the truth tellers fired for it." It is scarey to know people still think like that!!! I have read & heard so many (GOP!) politicians (and their supporters) admitting their party started the climate change movement skepticism as a purposeful distraction manuveur because they are now so ashamed for going along with such a game of danger~~~

It does get discouraging. The National Academies of Scientists of China, Russia, the UK, Brazil, - in fact every significant related scientific body on the planet - have signed statements stating that made-made global warming and climate change are real, and yet people like Judy above have been suckered by well-funded lobbyists into thinking that the science world has simply fallen under a 'spell' cast by outspoken people like Hansen and Gore. How sad for humanity.

"You cannot currently send a star to Kathleen because you have done so within the last week."

At this point, i skip over most of what Judy posts. I have given her time, patience, and the benefit of the doubt, and now I am tired of the same out-of-context cut and paste industry propoghanda.

Just my 4 cents.

Exactly Rick. What does Al Gore have to gain by creating some 'global warming conspiracy"? Money? He's affluent enough already. A sucker for derision and punishment? No, he doesn't need it.
And it's not an American issue, it's international. Many, many countries, probably the majority of them on the planet have stated and agreed from THEIR best scientists and studies that manmade global warming is occurring. It's impossible (but not of course to a conspriracist like Judy) that they are all linked in some global interconnected scam. That's insane, AND paranoid that all these people are 'out to get everyone by fooling them and all have hidden personal secret agendas' with some global 'scam' and are intent on some 'green death cult' wish for everyone and the planet. I think intelligent people have better things to do than that. Meanwhile, Judy barks, and barks, and barks like a tiring little dog.
