"Global Warming" gets a re-branding

RJ~PWCM~JLA 2012/03/21 18:34:06
After years of swearing it's about "Earth in the balance", the Global Warming Profiteers have realized that their old sales pitch is dead. Kaput. FAILED!

So now they've adopted a new one to promote their elitist profit-making scheme. It relies on so-called "kitchen-table issues" such as gas prices and kids choking on pollutants.

Can you spell S - C - A - M???


Shhhh! Don’t talk about global warming!

There’s been a change in climate for Washington’s greenhouse gang, and they’ve come to this conclusion: To win, they have to talk about other topics, like gas prices and kids choking on pollutants.

More than two years since Democrats’ cap-and-trade plan died in Congress, the strategic shift represents a reluctant acknowledgment from environmentalists that they’ve lost ground by tackling global warming head-on. Their best bet now lies in a bit of a bait and switch: Help elect global warming fighters by basing campaigns on kitchen-table issues.

“You don’t have to be James Carville to figure out that talking about people’s health and the health of their children … is going to make a difference to the average voter,” Daniel Weiss, director of climate strategy at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, said.

    And the stupidity continues........
    What makes me laugh is that a number of those that were studying this have already come forward and admitted that they skewed their info purposely to achieve false-positives.
    Global Warming is a hoax and yet another way to keep the voters away from paying attention to the truly important issues.
    Remember folks, anything associated with Al Gore is usually a very stupid idea.

    The point is, science is always making stupid mistakes like that, then they say, oh, it's all right now. NOW we know what we're talking about!"

    Yeah, right.

    THIMEROSAL. For one so well versed in the use of the chemical used to deliver a vaccine quicker, please use the correct spelling. No offense, just an observation from one who has done probably 140 hours of research on the subject.

    Thank you for the info, if it was intended as info and not just a snide put down. When my grand daughter was diagnosed at 13 with having Asperger's Syndrome, I delved into the subject and have spent a lot of time looking into the causes of autism.

    Ooooh, sorry, Joan, looks like you just don't measure up to her VERY rigorous intellectual standards.

    I know. The sad point of this is that children, 1 in 110 are now suffering with the disease. And on top of that their families suffer, too. The outrage is that when anyone questions the 35 vaccines that the babies now have to take, forced by the government, they are treated like this person feels they can.

    Right, and there has never been ONE independent or legitimate study done on the link between autism and vaccinations. Every single "study" has a member of a drug company on the panel. Follow the money. If there is no reason for there to be a link, why then does the US have a Vaccine Court and why have so many cases been awarded settlements? Why are 1 in 110 children suddenly being diagnosed? These are definitely rehtorical questions, since answers are usually the ones that the governments have issued.

    The only reason that the US forces vaccines, and there are now 35 that children are forced to have, is because of the drug company lobbyists. Period. Follow the money. Besides thimerosal in the vaccines, there are bovine fetal cells, human embryo cells, aspertame (yeah why the hell should a vaccine be sweet?), mice brain cells, and the list goes on and on. Do some research, google vaccine ingredients. And don't give me any crap unless you have a grand daughter with autism. Period.

    Well said! Thank you!
  • Turings... Kirino 2012/03/25 01:31:59
    I must admit, you have a great deal of FAITH in science. So much that you refuse to look at all the falsified data that has been found. Who KNOWS how much falsified data hasn't been uncovered?

    "First: there are no sacred truths; all assumptions must be critically examined; arguments from authority are worthless."

    This is exactly right.

    And the complete antithesis of "the science is settled" and "the debate is over".

    "If you look at the peer reviewed scientific literature, the debate is over." (Al Gore)

    The science is settled, Gore told the lawmakers.

    I know. You're gonna tell me that when Gore is right he's right, but when he's wrong he's wrong, and *you'll* be the judge of when he's right and wrong.

    Right. "Get over Al Gore".

    When I hear the "global warming scientists" denounce him in public, I'll stop giving him any credence.

    Up above you said "Science is never over."

    But now you're saying it "can be over."

    IOW, it's over when YOU decide it's over? Wrong.

    There's lots of evidence to the contrary. Don't tell me Algore is the only one who believes the "debate is over". Climategate revealed that there is a concerted ongoing effort to prevent dissenting voices from being published in the journals.

    Don't matter how they want to label it were all stilled dead thanks to these people who say greed is good. money what a crook it has no life to live and sure will not save a person from death.
  • Midnite12 2012/03/21 19:49:53
    For the children? Of course! Everything has to have "For the children" in it for people to even notice, let alone care.

    The earth IS warming. The ice caps ARE melting. We ARE polluting the atmosphere with more and more carbon emissions thereby destroying the ozone layer and allowing dangerous radiation to reach the earth. Whatever you call it. It's happening and if we don't do something NOW, there will be no stopping it. I don't know how people don't see this. I see it every season when summer comes earlier, winter doesn't have as much snow, spring flowers pop up in March instead of April and then there's the loss of many species that depend on the polar ice caps and an oxygenated ocean.

    quick tell me the average snowfall of the northwest America in 1697?

    No clue...but I'm sure you'll tell me.
