Biggest Climate Change Demonstration in Planet's History

Jon Stewart pwns GOP House of Representatives with a simple demonstration:

Oh, and then there's this: 


Cranston, RI said...

Tens-of-thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of New York City Sunday to demand political leaders take action on climate change.

The protest remained peaceful, and many of the “People’s Climate March” were Americans who want the U.S. and other countries to address global climate change.

Meanwhile, the Tea Party continues to deny what 99% of climate scientists agree on because they enjoy keeping their heads up a very dark and moist place.

And we call that STUPID.

No one has denied climate change since they changed the name from global warming to climate change.

It is turning cooler in most parts of the US and therefore the climate is changing. It does appear that the leftist base is confused and keeps changing names from global warming to climate change, from liberal to progressive (a name started by a conservative).

It is no wonder they support the current occupier of the WH. First he aids the terror group ISIS/ISIL by advising them when they would have no opposition then he does air strikes against them because his poll numbers have tanked.

The left is truly a confused group and some, fewer every day, stay in lock step behind their leader.

The US has lowered it's emissions to record lows. All this has to do with anything is taking money form the US and distributing it through the UN.
Wake up people as long as China and India keep pumping their filth into the air nothing we do will mean a darn thing,except line the pockets of the democrats from environmental groups.

The coverage is fairly instructive.

The so called liberal mainstream media gave scant coverage to the marches worldwide the other day but are giving some coverage to the "Flood Wall St."

Even though that event has been peaceful stories like the one in today's Globe have played up the number of arrests and seem to be trying to make this a repeat of Occupy Wall Street with little coverage of the protests issues.

Media in America is simply not healthy.

skudrunner, are you always as depressed as you sound? And such a repeater of nonsense?

Ducky's here said...

skud, do you not understand the idea of global climate change.
The important concept is the aggregate change which has been generating record temperatures for quite some time.

It isn't the left that is confused.

Now, remember, the word for the day is aggregate.

P.S. This topic has nothing to do with ISIL.

(O)CT(O)PUS said...

Skud's comment is BEYOND OFFENSIVE! So offensive, dishonest, and immoral, I intend to stay away and will no longer comment at this site.

Shaw Kenawe said...

(O)CT(O), skud is a perfect example of the inability of the Tea Partier to understand anything in politics because he and they are so tainted by their blind prejudices and ideologies. He's an example I allow here so that others can see how beyond reason he and they have become.

We went to war in Iraq because Hillary believed GWB and the "intel" he and Big Dick Cheney allowed Congress to see?

"The current "occupier of the White House" is an angry, whiney and petulant way of how these people deal with the fact that Mr. Obama was elected twice by the American people.

BTW, REagan's, Clinton's, and GWB's presidency were just about where Mr. Obama's is in terms of support by the American people and pundits. In fact, George Will had written Reagan off as just about a failure at this point in his presidency.

However, puny minds don't remember anything older than last night's talking points by Bill O'Reilly, and they certainly have no understanding of American politics and presidencies. They haven't the curiosity to read history, so they make colossal fools of themselves beating their little tin drums about Obama, blah, blah, blah.

Luckily history will make them all look like the misguided, angry know-nothings they've willfully chosen to be.

BTW, If you think HE'S offensive, you should see the stuff from right wingers that doesn't get published here.

When are these Tea Party nitwits going to figure out that we all know that "global warming" is real, and not multi-billion-dollar Ponzi scheme as their dumber member say?

Congress should pass a Law that any public figure who calls "Global Warming" a scam, should be immediately jailed for attempted mass fraud.

Their lunacy makes Sarah Palin look like Einstein.

Shaw Kenawe said...


skud never has anything constructive to say. He's a one trick pony. Whine, whine, whine. And it's always in one language: Foxese.

Cranston, R.I., “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

In this case that quote refers to the GOP, when getting votes from their base depends upon their not understanding global warming/climate change.

Anonymous @11:30AM, see above.

Shaw Kenawe said...

George C.T.: "When are these Tea Party nitwits going to figure out..."

Stop right there. They are not going to.


J.M.S. said...

shouldn't shaw be allowed to run her blog as she wants to? skudrunner is a pain in the butt but he's an example into how the weirdos on the right think, and he at least doesn't use foul language and attack people.

Dave Miller said...

Skud, please remember, at least you are permitted to comment here...

Duck and I have been banned from a couple of the sites we all used to frequent for essentially disagreeing. We don't swear, and I know I've never called someone a name I wouldn't use in front of my grandparents, but these days, simple disagreement gets you cut off.

Maybe when you comment here, you could at least stay on topic. As Ducky said, this post has nothing to do with Isis/Isil...

Funny stuff! Okay serious stuff.

The only qualifications one needed to sign was an associates degree in science. Of the 31,000 signatures only .1% had a degrees in the field of climatology,(that's point 1 %) a few had degrees in atmospheric sciences and meteorology. But actually only about 40 people who signed out of the 31,000 had expertise in climatology. -The petition is extremely dishonest and designed to be misleading.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Lisa, I don't know what the purpose of your comment is other than to prove for everyone here that those whom you refer to in that comment have been discredited. Maybe you hadn't thoroughly read that quote, because if you had you would have realized it actually reports on the 31,000 signatures as DENYING CLIMATE CHANGE and then exposes the fact that those denying it are not qualified to give a scientific opinion on the subject.

"But actually only about 40 people who signed out of the 31,000 had expertise in climatology." That refers to those who are DENYING climate change. So your comment supports the fact that climate change/global warming deniers are not really qualified in the field of climatology.

Thank you for adding to more evidence that climate change and anthropomorphic global warming is real.

Here is the entire article from Skeptical Science, and a link to the rest of the report:

"In early 2008, the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine (OISM) published their Petition Project, a list of names from people who all claimed to be scientists and who rejected the science behind the theory of anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming (AGW). This was an attempt to by the OISM to claim that there were far more scientists opposing AGW theory than there are supporting it. This so-called petition took on special importance coming after the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fourth Assessment Report, and specifically the Working Group 1 (WG1) report on the science and attribution of climate change to human civilization.

The WG1 report was authored and reviewed by approximately 2000 scientists with varying expertise in climate and related fields, and so having a list of over 30,000 scientists that rejected the WG1’s conclusions was a powerful meme that AGW skeptics and deniers could use to cast doubt on the IPCC’s conclusions and, indirectly, on the entire theory of climate disruption. And in fact, this meme has become widespread in both legacy and new media today.

It is also false.

According to the Petition Project “qualifications” page, “Signatories are approved for inclusion in the Petition Project list if they have obtained formal educational degrees at the level of Bachelor of Science or higher in appropriate scientific fields.” The fields that are considered “appropriate” by the OISM are as follows:"

Legs, Beyond Offensive, Really
Sharing of opinions is not a bad thing and no offense was meant.

Even algore has said the climate change (global warming) is not scientifically proven but he has made millions off it so he will tread lightly.

The top three offenders are China, US and India. Only the US is showing up for the summit so the results are mostly image of concern.

If this is not just a political opportunity why is the solution to Tax and sell carbon credits. Why not bad all imports from China and India. How many of those "protesters" were texting on their iphones made in China.
If there is real concern, celebrities should fly commercial, sell their mansions and take a bike.

The next decade we will see a global cooling and fear of the next ice age because the world leaders and celebrities are more concerned about their own comfort than solutions.

SKUD: “Sharing of opinions is not a bad thing and no offense was meant.

Awww! Poor little southern boy being picked on by a big inky Octopus. BULLSHIT! You have never come here to share an opinion in good faith. You come here to taunt and annoy people with sarcasm and sneer and jeer, deliberate errors of omission, outright lies and deception, and petty defamations. If anything, your moniker becomes you – an unguided missile of LIMITED RANGE and ZERO ACCURACY.

Your opinion on climate change, although dishonest and stupid, is NOT what offended me. Rather, this piece of offensive crap:

First he [President Obama] aids the terror group ISIS/ISIL by advising them when they would have no opposition [;] then he does air strikes against them because his poll numbers have tanked.”

Little do you know: I HAVE A DOG IN THIS FIGHT! My daughter is a high-ranking career officer serving in the military. Two Bronze Stars, Seven Distinguished Service Citations, a Bachelors and a Masters Degree, and fluent in four languages, she has spent her entire adult life in service to her country and is currently serving in the Persian Gulf. I RESENT YOUR PETTY DISRESPECT OF OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF DURING A TIME OF WAR. You see, Mr. Skud of limited range and zero accuracy, when you attack the Commander-in-Chief, you also attack the military personnel serving under him – who are protecting YOUR SORRY ASS from terrorists.

Little do you know her many sacrifices – the numerous deployments to Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, and Qatar; the roadside bomb that narrowly missed killing her but did kill her friends and colleagues; and the recent loss of one of her closest friends, Major General Harold Greene.

Little do you know the sacrifices made by the families of military personnel – the missing person at every holiday dinner table, and the dreaded stranger in uniform whom you hope will never come knocking at your door.

As recently as two days ago, I received a letter from my daughter. She has lost 20 pounds working 18 to 20 hours shifts to protect YOUR SORRY ASS from terrorists! Meanwhile, the only “comment” from a miserable excuse for humanity such as you: The politically bad optics of a cup of coffee in the President’s hand as he salutes the guard. Maybe the President NEEDS THAT GODDAM FUCKING CUP OF COFFEE, but assholes such as you never think of the stresses borne by the President, the stresses borne by troops in the field, or the stresses borne by their families - as long as assholes such as you get in your petty potshots, your stale talking points, and your unrelenting sneer and jeer.

Now, get lost! Go away. And GO TO HELL!

Shaw Kenawe said...

skud, I hope you see how petty, snide remarks affect people who are personally involved in these current military events in the Middle East. We do not appreciate your constant badgering and belittling of the president.

I did not agree with GWB and how he handled the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but I did not demean him as the CiC and I did not assign cynical motives to what he did as our troops were fighting and dying in the Middle East. You can look on this blog to verify that.

(O)CT(O)PUS and his family are dealing with the uncertainty and stress of having a loved one serving her country in that part of the world, and I have every sympathy and deep respect for (O)CT(O)PUS and his family as they go through this difficult time. His daughter is a true American hero. We are proud of her.

For your information. I, too, have a loved one in the Middle East at this time. My grandson. For security reasons, he is not able to tell me or his mother and father where exactly he is or how he's involved in defending our country against ISIS and other terrorists as well as your and your fellow wingnuts' right to demean and slander the President of the United States.

It turns my stomach to know that service men and women like (O)CT(O)PUS's daughter and my grandson are putting their lives on the line so that you can piss and moan about a president saluting with a coffee cup in his hand.

It makes you and your compatriots look like damn fools.

Be warned. Both (O)CT(O)PUS and I have little patience for that sort of whining and provoction.

Stupid things Conservatives say said...

There is no evidence what so ever that carbon dioxide is at all generated , spread, or caused by human, or human made activities that is causing climate change, climate warming global warming, or whatever the heck you want to call it “these days” . Climate is measured in decades so that it is determined in its cycles. The weather occurring where you reside changes every day, and season.
There is currently no global warming, none what so ever, no matter what Al Gore, Barack Obama or anyone eles wants to portray on the public. .. The Earth has been in a cooling cycle for decades No child who has past 5th grade in school has experienced a single day of “global warming.” The Obama administration’s policies towards climate change, climate warming, or global warming are strictly political .

I hope that sums it up, as some of Progressive imbeciles are trying to spread their Liberal crap on the rest of us. They never got beyond the Dope Smoking 60's, and once again are pushing that dumb CLIMATE CRAP on us. Lord save us from these liberal idiots. They are much more dangerous then the Muzzies are these days."
