    Those two extremist are just bought off period, tell them to go measure some ice in the Arctic and then listen to their spin & Lies. The planet is warming thats not even a question anymore, mankind has billions of hot little engines running around,factories and on and on and on and they will still tell you lies and spin because for those two its party first,then lies then spin and back to party first and more spin. Extremist of all kinds are just sickening.

    It doesn't matter that the engines are hot...

    Breaking News: Limbaugh and Hannity say things that should irritate everyone, not just liberals. If you're going to argue against climate change, can't you think of something better than "it's snowing"? What they say should irritate anyone who can think for themselves, conservatives and liberals alike.

    Why so? And what is "the most popular model"?



    Edit: as for rush/hannity they're just dishing up what their audience wants to hear.

    There is a solution to their mindlessness, dont watch and dont listen to these schmucks. It works.

    ^^ The issue is that too many Americans do listen to people like them. Which allows non-issues like attempting to ban abortion and banning gay marriage to dominate US politics even though they are based on incredibly flimsy and generally religious (which is against the constitution) grounds.

    Limbaugh and Hannity might believe their own hype, but even if they do they don't really care about it except in the sense that it makes them money and gains them notoriety.

    Global warming is not based on a single event or even a single season but a trend over long periods of time. Someone should show them a chart of average temperatures over the last 100 years... The evidence is right there in front of you and undebatable. The real question is what is causing it, man or is it natural?...

    Are you stating that the US Constitution wasn't based at all on any religious belief system? Intentional or otherwise?

    Probably true. If they didn't have an audience that's reactive enough to set the agenda for Congress, I'd be willing to ignore them completely.

    Apparently Hannity and Limbaugh can't. The arguments are complex, but the ideologues are skilled at boiling every issue down to the pan.

    Of course, some people do this, but they're also part of the scientifically illiterate.

    He's saying that limiting rights which would/should ordinarily be granted to citizens but for religious zealotry is unconstitutional. What if my religion said that due process was a sin? Too bad. I disagree with him in that abortion should be allowed Constitutionally without debate, but being in favor of outlawing gay marriage is an indefensible and reprehensible position, even if you find the concept offensive or immoral.

    They continue to create confusion for their listeners.

    I wish people like them would realize the following:
    • Weather =/= Climate
    • Policy =/= Science

    Ok, thanks. I didn't initially read it like that earlier.

    Even if Global Warming is caused by C02 emissions, the plan they have to fix the problem is idiotic and a huge scam.

    What is the plan? Who is "they" who decided on it? Why is it "idiotic"? And why is it a "huge scam"?

    No, you should listen to them, or at least be aware of what is driveling onto their microphones. Just pretend them into obscurity.

    "Rush Limbaugh? Who is that?" That really upsets the "-heads.

    Taxing carbon emissions or the cap and trade system. I don't see how anyone could think that would reduce carbon emissions.

    And that is a valid concern. If my factory was going to face a punitive tax for its carbon output, and I could not trade with someone else to reduce the penalty, what would I do? Outsource to Malaysia? This system will only work if it can also capture carbon output that is being generated from imports.

    It's nothing more than a huge money making scheme. Al Gore has made a fortune off stupid people willing to buy carbon credits.

    The Malaysians will be under pressure to reduce their emissions too and so they will probably have a carbon tax too.

    That said a minimum carbon tax on imports would probably be a good idea.
