It's a "HOAX". But lets just say it isn't. How do you suggest we fix it? Living in caves is not an acceptable answer.

Occupy: You have SEVERAL grammatical errors in your rant above. There still is no actual proof that man-caused "global warming" exists. BTW I thought "it" is now referred to as "climate change." Our month of May is now cooler than "normal." Explain that one Occupy!

Too bad, you can't see the corrupt science even though it is right in front of your face. The IPCC was exposed and admitted to fudging the numbers to make AGW, aka, climate change look as though it was a real problem. It was also admitted that devices for monitoring the climate, such as thermometers, were placed in areas that are warmer than they should be, such in cities where there is a lot of concrete, and that they are no longer monitoring places that are normally cold, like in Siberia. So, of course it is going to seem a lot warmer than it is. FYI, when you are talking possessive, it is "their".

You're right. It could be that some people are stupid and do not realize that man made global warming has not been proven at all. You don't need to only prove that the climate is changing; it always has changed. You have to prove that that particular factor is the cause. There are millions of possible reasons for the climate to change. Why choose man made green house gases over some other causes? Why alter the data of the mid-evil temperatures? Why the deception? $

Yesterday, while speaking to the Environmentalist Defense Fund, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced that ‘man-made’ Global Warming is now an issue of national security. Any reasonable person might ask why, and Panetta explains:

“The area of climate change has a dramatic impact on national security. Rising sea levels, severe droughts, the melting of the polar caps, the more frequent and devastating natural disasters all raise demand for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.”

Rising sea levels will cause the United States to spend more money in aid, thus hurting our national security? Panetta fails to connect the dots...
