world wide, insurance rates are being driven up by the effects of global warming. The financial world (ie: not hippies) is betting that global warming is real, and are willing to bet their money on it. So, I have a proposal for TH since you're all such a great fans of capitalism. Start up an insurance company and offer protection at lower rates. You'll quickly get market share and make a fortune - if of course you are correct and global warming is a fraud.

Fire your oncompetent fact checker. In actual fact, insurance rates are NOT "being driven up by the effects of global warming". That is complete bovine fecal matter. The actuarial underpinnings for the reise in insurance costs has everything to do with the susceptibility to weather events of large populations and property concentrations alomg coastlines subject ti weather phenomena.

The financial sector is no more betting their money on fictional global warming than they are on your intelligence ... and for the same reason.

How do you make the supposition that it is global warming that is driving up insurance rates, Arugula? It couldn't possibly be that more and more people are building in flood zones, could it?

When your argument rests on a false foundation the argument is moot.

There simply is no excuse for your level of ignorance when a wealth of information is available at your finger tips to cure you of your blind allegiance to dogma and propaganda.

What a pantload of garbage.

Cite your sources. Another progressive tool responds with the BIG LIE.

In October one of the main culprits in the global warming hoax published new data that undermines their own theory of global warming. The UK’s MET Office, more formally called the UK's National Weather Service, updated global temperatures for 2012 and the new dataset shows that an “unlikely” event has occurred, according to their own models: Global warming has been halted for 15 years and counting.

While the MET Office accused critics of cherry-picking a starting point and nitpicked about language-for example the Daily Mail reported that the “Met Office report [was] quietly released,” while the Met office whined they just...
