There's liars, dam liars and then there's statistics- Mark Twain, I believe. They try to claim that the temperature has increased 1.1 degree in the last 100 years. I challenge them to find the thermometer from 100 years ago that was accurate to 1 degree. Let alone .1 degree. SO, their answer lies outside the bounds of the error associated with it. We don't even have thermometers today accurate to 1 degree absolute- as calibrated to NCAR standards. Then, I challenge them to show us the rest of the statistics. Where were these temperatures measured- Everywhere? I think not. And what about the temperature itself. Did they use the average daily temperature, or the high temperature, and low temperature? Did they add in the effects of AC systems- how they push heat out of buildings, and therefore raise the apparent temperature in cities? Did they do proper wet-bulb temperature measurements so they could get heat content? Speaking of heat, did they ever realize that it is not temperature but heat that matters- and heat is a function of temperature times air mass. Has anybody done a proper thermodynamic analysis of these temperature relative to the heat capacity of the air? Or do they understand any of that? And don't even get me started on CO2 measurements form 100 years ago...That's an even bigger joke. In the 1990's when we were doing urban airshed modeling, the EPA (Carol Browner) asked us to include CO2 in our measurements. They told us it was the only proper way to get a fuel balance. Now we understand what they were up to.
Those of us who might rally against their cause are otherwise employed, and simply do not have the time to attend such an event. We have to work to pay our taxes so that the government can give them their free stuff. Like tennis shoes made of petroleum products, for instance. I wonder if and when they will be prepared to give up heat and AC and move back to the caves?
If the repubs don't get their act together and win the senate, we are screwed.
This was the man elected by a trunk load of "suddenly found" ballots. And a republican who refused to fight back. Republicans often deserve what they get. Also remember that this was the deciding vote on Obamacare. No Franken- No Frankenstein Monster known as Obamacare.
How in the world di we get to this point? I'm certain that if you fell asleep in 2007, and woke up now, you'd think the world had turned upside down. Oh-yeah, that's right we elected president entirely because of his color. TWICE.
I think she's having a relationship with Romney. Whether real or imagined. I stopped taking election advice from her a long time ago. I think it was the fawning Christie love that first hit a bad spot in my stomach. She does have nice hair though.

what a painful train wreck to watch. It's like Jimmy Carter on steroids.
I want one of those machines. the kind that takes everything that is said that makes sense, and turns it into something that is nefarious. (learned that word from Megan Kelly). then, I could be king of my sandbox also.
DWA just needs to keep her mouth running - PLEASE! She alienates more voters per word spoken that anybody on the Dem side. Can you imagine being that lady's poor husband? I mean, imagine coming home to that every night...
I like Larry the Cable guys position. He says his cousin likes sheep, but doesn't feel the need to march in a parade every weekend to announce it.
