who ya gonna believe?

I remain certain that WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!! anyway, but now I'm really concerned about HOW. When 86 evangelical Christian leaders tell you that global warming is real, you'd better get ready for it, because these people KNOW. They don't need to be scientists or experts in climatology. They have a direct pipeline to God himself.

When they weigh in on the issue, you can take their opinions to church the bank.

The statement calls for federal legislation that would require reductions in carbon dioxide emissions through "cost-effective, market-based mechanisms" ó a phrase lifted from a Senate resolution last year and one that could appeal to evangelicals, who tend to be pro-business. The statement, to be announced in Washington, is only the first stage of an "Evangelical Climate Initiative" including television and radio spots in states with influential legislators, informational campaigns in churches, and educational events at Christian colleges.

Yep. When you want to do God's will today--- or maybe UNDO God's will if global warming is one of those "mysterious ways" in which God works--- you by-pass prayer and go straight to the REAL power: the Federal Government. That's just practical politics; after all, we're not a bunch of ignorant sun-worshippers anymore.

Speaking of the sun, here's a crazy bastard who suggests that we're headed for another "mini ice age" instead of the frying pan. The damned heathen blames climate change on THE SUN, for crying out loud. Did you ever hear such a ridiculous notion in your life? Where has he been for the past 20 years?

That Russian scientist sounds like a superstitious fool to me. I'm gonna put my faith in the preachers, who KNOW what they're talking about.


they have yet to prove the FIRST ice age existed, much less are able to predict and up and coming SECOND...
how are we supposed to differentiate between actual science and theory anymore the way they shove everything down our throats like its gospel?

When my telephone pole was on fire the other night. A neighbor of mine told me it must be global warning that the pole caught on fire. She was very scared of that pole burning. Dumb ass bitch.

I think the guy talking about a mini-ice age is probably on to something. The sun doesn't "burn" at a constant rate. Even slight fluctuations can result in drastic temperature changes. This is why the idea of "global warming" strikes me as ridiculous. How do we know that greenhouse gases are causing temperature rises when random solar radiation fluctuations in the few ten-thousandths of a percent range can cause the same or opposite effects? Global warming is junk science. I'm old enough to remember the 70's when they were worried about Global cooling from all the particulate matter in the air. Buncha damn chicken littles.

I'll believe the human race is causing global warming when someone can explain to me just how an SUV driving soccer mom is causing the polar ice caps to melt.... on MARS!

I think what these people heard was God saying "If you keep worrying me with this bogus shit, I'm going to warm your asses up real good"
Don't piss God off, he's got lightning bolts and shit.
