As a rule, Republicans aren’t real big on that librul skience stuff, so their denial on such obvious matters as climate change and the notion that oil and gulf water do not mix well is expected. Their latest affliction with insaniTEA has Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christians implying that the environmentalists’ intent is to kill off 95% of the human race.

wow, GREAT, the very first comment there says exactly what I'd have written:

> " I suppose if an environmentalist wants 95% of the human race gone it is better than the 100% of the human race [plus, currently 1000 species per week] that them who continue to pour [MEGA]tons of [POLLUTION] into the environment every day [ARE KILLING OFF]"

" We're not going to like it, but, eventually, the population of this planet is going to be a whole lot less than six billion. The question that we face is: will it come about through voluntary or involuntary means? If it comes about by involuntary means: how horrendous are those involuntary means going to be? " -- William R. Catton in Blind Spot (2008)

" Of course, if *we* don't stop population growth, Nature will. And it'll be the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, it'll be disease and war and famine and that sort of thing. " -- Prof. A.A.Bartlett in Blind Spot (2008)

" New Terra was what Earth might have been with maybe 1% of its population: paradise." -- "Betrayer of Worlds" (2010) by Larry Niven & Edward M. Lerner

Environmentalists = dark pagans? Really?

I would love for the anti-environmentalists to explain how they plan to live on this planet once they have finished depleting all of it's resources. They won't be able to eat, breathe or drink the water.

Maybe they are really aliens from another planet sent here on a mission to destroy the earth, once they are done, they consider it a job well done, hop back on their spaceship and go to the mother planet. How about they leave early?

Life........vs.........Death
Dem......vs.........GOP
reality....vs.........money in our pockets now, we are old, so what!!!
Global Warming is real...........vs.............we don't care, we make too much money doing it the old way

Christian 10 commandments..Do Not take the Lord's Name In Vain
This is not about swearing..it is about lying, using God's name to create fear and deception, corruption & death..................GOP/teabaggers need to go to church, not make up their own...theirs is just like Hitler's...and the affects of WW11 are still with us in our lives and still in everyones face.

Ah yes. We tree-huggers are trying to destroy the world.
Like Groucho Marx used to say "That's the most ridiculous thing I ever heard!"

"Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?" Groucho Marx. We are dealing with the obvious results of climate change and those who ignore what is all around the global are fools and should be cast out.

Most right wingers think they are going to fly to heaven during the "rapture" - so why don't they leave managing the enviroment to those of us who don't want to go with all those hypocrites.

i know historically its been dems that don't have a spine, but maybe its all pols...these repuglicons can't even support the things they supported or proposed in the past...sick, sick, sick....

did we all notice that once again its repuglicon opposite world...who hasn't cared about the economy and jobs since taking over The House, who doesn't care about saving the world from destruction (Genesis did not say destroy creation, just dominion...), who doesn't care about feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, healing the sick/infirmed, etc....

My guess is that if Jesus had a vote it wouldn't be for any of the the 'cons...he was one for actions not words...

Noted, thanks, Tom. yeah, I was really disappointed the Rapture didn't happen, would have been nice to get rid of all those monothesists (or moneytheists) so maybe those of us with a brain that can reason could have at least a chance to save the world.

Thanks for the great quotes, Wolf! Especially the one from William R. Catton.

"Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?" Groucho Marx..Love it Kit!:)
I don't think the RepubliCONs are anti-science, they just pick & choose their scientists. They KNOW there's climate change & Just Don't CARE! Frankly I think they're mad as hell that people are dying fast enough! It's not like they haven't Tried to kill us faster, but we keep on going...;)

I'm a dark pagan?
Really?
I always thought of myself as more of a 'mind-thine-own-business Christian'.
I did some research on Calvin Beisner, and his views are...well, let's hear it from the horse's ass - er, mouth.
1990: Beisner wrote a piece criticizing the need for further federal spending on AIDS research, treatment and education."Is it rational to allocate $3.5 billion dollars to fight a disease that is almost 100 percent self-inflicted by people intent on immoral and irrational behavior?"
2005: , Beisner wrote an article criticizing a judicial ruling barring intelligent design from a biology class curriculum. "Perhaps a few more will waken now to the fact that the public schools are the enemy, not the friend, and not even a neutral party to Christians, and therefore (a) remove their kids from them and (b) stop working with them."
2009: "I am convinced that policies meant to reduce alleged carbon dioxide-induced global warming will be destructive." (This apparently represents 'a balanced Biblical view'.)

Please.... can we quit bashing both party's, Dems and Rep? Get out and VOTE to make changes, get rid of those in office that aren't serving American values. I care about the environment and I'm doing something about it, we all need to be proactive in these matters.

I'm not surprised Calvin Beisner has trouble thinking well - it must be very hard when his head is so far up his butt.

There is less than general agreement on how much man contributes to global warming, and the history of the earth is one of swings between global warming and cooling that have had nothing to do with man. Obviously though everything adds up from items as small as lighting a match to the emissions belching factories.

My concern is all the toxins we are spewing into the air we breathe, water we drink, soil, plants, etc. THAT, to me, is what is liable to poison us off the planet. While some GOPers may have genuine doubt, I think that by and large the neocons oppose measures to reduce emissions because it would cost their elite masters money. When money is involved, then humanity and the rest of our planet always takes a back seat to the globalist who could care less about you and me.

Thanks Everyone.

Katherine, the position of one party is to encourage despoiling the environment. Keeping that party out of power is a very proactive step.

Tony, your concerns about toxins is every bit as valid as mine about climate change.

If we were all rich republicans, we could eat our money after we destroy our planet. I think I would rather save the planet and have a nice juicy steak. That's just me though.
