For those few who actually want to read the analysis (fact checking is not prevalent in the comment section) http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/post/issas-absurd-claim-that-clintons-signature-means-she-personally-approved-it/2013/04/25/58c2f5b4-adf8-11e2-a986-eec837b1888b_blog.html
Ransom writes "The word “signature” here is key. A signature—not a stamp or autopen—means that Clinton must have seen and signed the cable personally." He is totally wrong. As the Washington Post fact checker notes, Ransom has no idea of what a "signature" is in cables. WaPo goes on to say "At this point, Issa (Ransom) has no basis or evidence to show that Clinton had anything to do with this cable — any more than she personally approved a cable on proper e-mail etiquette. Four Pinocchios. Of course Ransom will dismiss this because it comes from WaPo-- but the reporter spent 9 years covering the State department. Or maybe because it comes from factually-based reporting--you know how much he hates that.

The US still produces more carbon per capita than any other country in the world. Still plenty of room for improvement here.
"That’s because last month employers added a whopping 17,000 jobs to their staffs nationwide" Where is he getting these numbers? According to the bls Total non farm employment went up by 157,000 in January.

"In May of 2012, the Heartland Institute hosted its biggest ever- and seventh ever-International Conference on Climate Change..." Right, that's why they are discontinuing their conference for lack of funding. What a great success.

Why don't you spend some time researching this before you spout off. Every temperature station has a long tern average temperature for every day of the year. You look at how a given temperature departs from that to get your anomaly.

"There is no such thing as an average global temperature. It’s a mathematically impossible concept." That is why the measurement you see are not absolute temperatures but anomalies--departures of a temperature from a long-term average.
"the very foundation for many of their policies is built on sand, worthless computer models or outright deception" Pathetic. Only Driessen and the deniers on TH fail to see the huge impact climate change will have.
