There are things both parties are going to have to swallow to move the country forward. First climate change IS real and its already getting costly, sandy's cost was in the billions, the mid west drought cost billions, Its so dry now the mississippi river is so low that barge traffic is being halted from Cairo Illinois to St Louis. The Joplin Tornado was billions. Recovery from a recession is going to throttled down with costs like that. No you can't point to each and every one as being tied to climate change but there certainly is a pattern emerging. And the Arctic is melting, as evidenced that the oil companies are starting to drill up there Yea more oil, yes more warming and disasters.

You cannot control the weather. If you give up your car, or do not use any oil, and go back to whale blubber, perhaps we can do as you wish. None of the "green" ideas have worked. I would give up my car, but not many would. We could not depend on Arab oil if we had our own pipeline. Fracking is not as dangerous as "they" say. I know as family in the business of checking this out, and I've changed from Democrat to Republican, plus I love the environment. We have to find the middle road.

There has been no warming for over 16 years and this is not disputed. The Arctic ice melts to some extent every summer, now it's frozen over, so it's not melting at this time. Ever heard of Prudhoe Bay? You don't have to have melting to drill for oil. Watch Ice Road Truckers. That's ocean they are driving on for much of the time.
Severe weather alerts in 2012 were way below average.

So that is why weather related insurance claims have quintupled since 1980, silly me.
Also why many news stations now have extreme weather teams.

"Science" based on hyperbole is insane.

Attempting to tie an insane "science" to the failure of an even more insane fiscal policy is also irrational.

Were you even able to graduate from any institution chicee? One that required critical thinking? it seems unlikely. I suggest Lib 101 has failed you in a great many ways.

Blaming bad weather on human-induced climate change is astrology and voodoo and blaming prosperity for bad weather is just plain ignorant. People who push for getting off oil don't seem to be able to stop using it and most use a LOT more of it than the normal person. If you are a smoker than stop telling people to quit smoking or even slow down.

No global warming? Oh yeah it has changed to...get ready....climate change. One more change happened and it is now...global climate disruption by the science czar Holdren. If we wait another year we can call weathermen (disruption analysts). How much more can we take?

And the dust bowl days which also cost billions by today's standard and many other similar disasters, a long time before there was even a murmur of global warming. Oh, and then there was the ice age that scientists tell us covered most of the earth! Wow! We're doomed for sure

What happens if everything is normal 2013? What is your alternative to oil?

What about those recent sun flares that didn't manage to hit the MSM?

1) Guns for making all those poor innocent criminals break the law.

2) The old, dead white guys who founded America and their ridiculous, outdated Constitution that doesn't mention global warming or limits on soda size even once.

3) Nosy voters who ask questions like, "What kind of change?" and "Forward to where?"

4) Adorable little kids who want to run lemonade stands...WITHOUT A PERMIT!

5) The fact that Sarah Palin is the single best feminist role model in a generation while the Left's #1 feminist role model, Hillary Clinton, built her whole career around marrying the right guy.

6) Deciding...
