Do you belong to the "new Church of Global Warming"?
I tried finding it but my 2ft of snow over the weekend didn't allow my car to get out of the drive way
You know, conservatives are funny little things.
They claim to love religion and the church, yet use it to degrade everything they hate.
No, but Global Warming is a Reality. May God have mercy on those who destroy the earth.
How much does Exxon pay you to post these questions?
Yes yes I DO!
No... I'm still stuck on the Global Cooling hoopla from the late 60's.
No, but it environmentalism is a religion. Except you can disprove this faith.
you should ask that of the people in Chicago today who have weather advisories about the frigid wind chill.
No, but i do belong to the church of terrorism and fearmongering!
With me the Jury is still out...We need more research that is independent of politics.
Is Ted Haggard going to be conducting the sermons? I'M IN!
I'm an atheist when it comes to global warming.
Wait, that doesn't make sense.
No, I don't believe that man is a significant factor in global warming.
Nope, I'm a Southern Baptist.
Here's my theory. I beleive in Global Warming, but I do not believe it is caused by humans. There is a Russian scientist, Habibullo Abdusamatov, says the cause is in fact an increase in solar activity, not CO2 in the atmosphere. I don't know if he's right, but I do believe it's a cycle that the Earth goes through regularly and there is nothing Man can do to start or stop it in any significant amounts.
Never heard of such a thing. I've only heard of scientific research and a darn near consensus among scientists.
I've have heard of those in denial who have no respect for logical thinking and believe its funny when they and their children are in as much danger as everyone else. These people also clearly don't read any scientific journals where for years now Global Warming has been discussed as fact. Only in the mind of President Bush (and similar non-intellects) does Global Warming not exist.
I challenge them: let me select the river and they can drink from it, then we will see who believes or doesn't believe in environmental concerns. Come, let me baptize you in the waters of the Hudson River, and join the church of Global Warning.
In case you were wondering, yes, you just got pwn3d.
George Bush is since talked about it in his state of the union address also the Presidents own science council are members
You can deny this all you like
just like the tobbacco guys who will still say that smoking doesnt cause cancer
No. Eurpoern governments have shown their hand by linking the idea to "pollution taxes" imposed on the US.
Maybe the science bears them out. But it may well be a scheme to get our money.
Watch your wallet!
To say it is a "church" mean to imply that there is something "faith based" about it. The science relies on taking temps GLOBALLY using recording thermometers. (is it an ariticle of faith that they work?) and compiling them with computers, ect. A SINGLE scientist can betray the profession and falsify data, as has been known to happen, but I have SOME
faith that not ALL scientists are liars. They couldn't function that way.
Yes I typically listen to what experts think on an issue. And when the majority of them agree that Man has a big part in Global Warming I believe them.
Make no mistake about the fact that most conservatives don't believe it because they think its a liberal issue. Anybody commenting about the fact that some areas have snow so there must not be global warming show how little they really know about the issue.
Global warming has been occurring since the end of the last ice age. Scientists were convinced that the cold spike of the mid-1960s was the coming of the long overdue global cooling period.
While the last century has seen some faster than normal warming, no scientist ever has identified what man made cause or causes is contributing to the warming.
The US produces a lot of CO2 so Europe blames it on the CO2. But Europe and Asia produce other forms of pollution, sulfur and smog that could be just as at fault. It could also be caused by the rapid deforestation of the last 100 years. Or perhaps the increased solar activity combined with other factors.
So no, I don't belong, nobody has provided compelling evidence despite their recent "consensus" that global warming existed.
First: It's not a church it is a science.
Second: I do believe in the science of global warming.
Third: I believe those who disbelieve are just too darn lazy to make an effort to try & stop it, so they make fun of it!
Heaven forbid that they stop with the 4 cars in the driveway, change a light bulb, turn off lights you are not using, or turn down the thermostat 1 degree, recycle, even a bit would help, or at least try & consurve car emmisions by keeping your car tuned up.
The fact of global warming is under assault by the
Church of More Money For Me. Some people will believe
whatever has the end result of getting them more money, all
other consequences are irrelevant. Businesses don't even
want to make tiny, small, inexpensive compromises that would prevent global warming, its more beneficail for them to try to destroy the credibility of scientists and destroy the earth so they
end up with a couple extra bucks when the earth eventually does become uninhabitable.
Since when are scientists part of any 'church' movement? Global Warming is proven by scientists not faith and not fairy tales.
No. I don't like the 300 or so pastors of this cult. All they want to do is preach about how we are killing ourselves by our constant energy consumption and pollution. It was 2 degrees this morning where I live. So I need some warmth.
Uh, i dont know. What is it? I know what Global Warming is-but when did it get a church?
No. I am educated and have believed that Global Warming is occurring on Earth since 1997 when I took "AP Environmental Science" in High School.
YES!!!EVERYONE SHOULD BE!!
All our cars, buildings, etc etc. let off CO2. Since we have so much stuff running on fuels etc. we have tons of CO2 in the air!. CO2 absorbs the suns rays thus making it hotter than ever. The polar ice caps are melting and WHEN the ice caps melt completely the water level is gonna rise and put part of our countries under water!! And yes it does exist! So much has already melted. That if we don't do anything soon, our world will change within the next 50 years to a decade.
And maybe the reason people don't think it exist is because the government isn't doing anything about it, well thats because they are making alot of money on all these oils and fuels we use. And its expensive to make everything run on solar power. I fear for our childrens futures. and the president who is gonna be presented with this problem when it will probably be too late to find a solution.
I pity those who don't care.
