“Wait? If we are causing global climate change by burning fossil fuels? How did the artifacts get below the glaciers? Oh the glaciers werent there because it was warmer then? What fossil fuels were the viking burning in their cars????”

“Public libraries are marvelous institutions. You can read books there, for free. I'll bet they even have books on Glaciology.”

“Gosh! How do all those Roman artifacts get so deep in the dirt? I mean, were they living underground or something? You know what? I bet those rotten Vikings were following the Romans around, burying all their stuff. The Vikings made the glaciers with their refrigerators. It's all their extra stale ice cubes that they threw out because stale ice makes martinis taste bad. The Swedes were keeping up the tradition, but they figured out that they eat preserved fish anyway so they don't need the refrigerators, so they turned them all off. Besides, they want to grow bananas.

So the Swedes are responsible for the melting glaciers. You can go back to sleep now.”

“Why do you assume that the glaciers "weren't there"? You think these people were incapable of walking on ice?

Even worse, why do you assume that all warming must have the same cause? That's just plain silly. It's like saying that forest fires can't be caused by careless campers because forest fires occurred before there were careless campers. It makes no sense at all.”

Publicola on Mar 24, 2013 at 20:14:18

“Q: Why can't science deniers understand the simple concept of multiple causation?

A: Because they are science deniers, of course.

Known natural forcing agents of past global warming - including changes in orbital cycles, increases in solar radiation, and natural increases in atmospheric CO2 - cannot explain global warming over recent decades.

Neither has any scientific theory to explain the bulk of said recent warming other than anthropogenic global warming survived scientific scrutiny.”

“Yes I agree , plants brought here can be ruinous on the enviorment, Mill weed, types of water plants are killing many lakes and ponds.

“Feral pigs are not natural to our environment. The local wild animals have no defense against them . They kill and eat anything . Young animals that need the lower fauna in the woodsland often starve to death because pigs eat everything green on the floor of the forest. Often it results in localized extinction of natural species! Kill them with any means possible!”

Mitt Romney After Bain Capital: Leaked Documents Connect Candidate To Adelson, Casinos, Cigarettes

“No! But I'll give you a multiple choice:

A) The Obama Administration killed Bin Laden
B) The Obama Administration saved the US Auto Industry
C) The Obama Administration passed universal health care
D) The Obama Administration ended the Iraq War
E) All of the above!

You see, you can't deny the accomplishments under this administration. I would like to see a healthier economy, but the executive branch needs the cooperation of the US Congress to create an environment for a healthier economy (which would lead to better job creation).

These accomplishments would be celebrated by any two term President. What can GWB claim as accomplishments? What do you know really know about Mitt Romney? He won't talk about his record as Governor of Mass. He won't talk about Bain Capital (in fact, he points to the Winter Olympics as his crowning achievement, but he fails to point out the extensive Federal Government assistance he received). And finally, he won't talk about the Mormon Church. He's and empty suit for sale! And as the article points out, he for purchase to the highest bidders.

So if you want to vote Mitt, go for it!”

“She wasnot covered the whole time. her insurance dropped her when she became too sick to work. Her husbands insurance was a strong secondary insurance for her. Bain promised employees they would keep the benefits the workers during their life long careers. BAIN LIED! BAIN sent their jobs to other businesses they owned "offshore" in china. These Steel Mill workers made a good honest living. This is just one example of thousands of lives RUINED by Mitt Romney's pursuit of just a little more profit and wealth for themselves.

And social security and medicare cuts that we've paid into for nearly all of our working lives.

Had he ever been voluntarily or involuntarily been "institutionalized" (i.e. in a

Just BEING "under psychiatric care" does NOT prohibit one from obtaining
