Global warming deniers have bought dogma of fossil-fuel industry

Text Size: A | A

Global warming deniers have bought dogma of fossil-fuel industry David Harsanyi’s April 6 column, “On the environment, the alarmists still losing,” cites many polling numbers, focusing on the public’s views on energy and global warming. He terms global warming “a theory that has been over-hyped and manipulated for political ends.” He ends after saying “...energy is less open to emotional appeals and pandering.” I would agree that human-driven global warming has been “manipulated,” but not ...

Bob Nicolella:
You must be new here, because as anyone that grew up here can tell you, the winters were BRUTAL.
There were days on end of below zero temperatures.
Now, they close schools for a lousy 4 inches.

Is it possible that British owned, National Grid is screwing us?

No, there is no such thing as climate change, and I know this because Fox told me so.

This just in: The Earth is ROUND.]
No, really, I saw a picture.

Its more like Al gore told Fritzdawg that man has caused global warming. Since Fritz and Don believe the oil industry has us all believing that man made global warming is a farce we must be ignorant boobs. No doubt about it. The emails and millions of dollars people like Gore and Kennedy are raking in promoting man made global warming don't mean anything. The money the left wants to worm out of us in carbon taxes are just because they care so darn much. Dawg doesn't watch Fox, he just bashes it then spend hours watching MSNBC to get his "facts". After all would Al Sharpton, Chris Mathews, Rachel Maddow, Ed Shultz, and all the other great "Jounalists" on his channel mislead him? Couldn't happen. Why be skeptical of left wing alarmist research scientists who need tax money to continue their "work"? This is just one more revenue stream lefties have latched on to. Just read their emails.

Well; I just watched Fox and their desire to promote a first strike on North Korea and shoot down any missile tests despite a warning by Army Generals not to. Right after that segment; there was an independent add asking viewers to help disabled veterans who have sacrificed so much in Iraq and Afghanistan. Take a look at all the crippled vets who can't walk, have trouble functioning and with missing body parts.
Seems Fox will not miss a chance to promote another war despite the reasons, expense or destruction; much less pain and suffering of the people who do the fighting. They still believe the war in Iraq was just.
Why would Global Warming or the effects of burning fossil fuels be of any concern to them?

Some people don't have enough challenges in life. Solar panels are not an eyesore on the front roof of a house. Just another way for gov to dictate to the people and charge fees for their coffers. Get real and attack something that really needs attention.

Justapto, why don't you enlighten us on "FOX" promoting a first strike. Like most lefties you have no problem gambling other peoples lives. Your motto is "when I see the plume" then I'll believe. If we or our allies take out the missiles in flight, maybe NK will realize the futility in further launches and stand down. Fox hardly "promotes" war, they just dont have enough weak kneed liberals on the air promoting the lefts policy of appeasement. If the first missile lands on LA, NYC, Washington or Chicago, then I'm with you. As for the pain of the people doing the fighting, rest assured, no liberals are getting hurt.

Phils2008 and wmarincic; I imagine both you guys are volunteer military veterans and have close family members who are actively serving now, (both of which I can answer yes to).
There is no longer any draft, Most of the young volunteers either need the tuition money or are patriotic enough to put their money ,(lives), where their mouth is.
No; I am not a liberal or Democrat but an active true conservative. You guys have stolen our party line and our beliefs.
A huge military is a government enterprise that you say your against. You bash our elected President on Fox and at every chance you get to everyone you see and yet yell 'losing our freedoms of speech' at the same time.
As for your gambling other peoples lives; what about the 60,000 dead Americans in Vietnam, now Iraq and Afghanistan while sitting on your coach in front of the 50" High Def yelling: 'Go get em men'!

Analysis of global warming is not based on looking at any one year; that is a misunderstanding .
