Do conservatives ever get tired of being stupid? Do I ever get tired of asking rhetorical questions as veiled insults? No, actually, I never do:

bingo-22: Once I see the National Academy of Sciences affirm that global warming is truth, I will support legislation to comply with preventative measures

All right, if you insist:

The National Academies, For Immediate Release:

'High Confidence' That Planet Is Warmest in 400 Years;
Less Confidence in Temperature Reconstructions Prior to 1600

WASHINGTON -- There is sufficient evidence from tree rings, boreholes, retreating glaciers, and other "proxies" of past surface temperatures to say with a high level of confidence that the last few decades of the 20th century were warmer than any comparable period in the last 400 years, according to a new report from the National Research Council. Less confidence can be placed in proxy-based reconstructions of surface temperatures for A.D. 900 to 1600, said the committee that wrote the report, although the available proxy evidence does indicate that many locations were warmer during the past 25 years than during any other 25-year period since 900. Very little confidence can be placed in statements about average global surface temperatures prior to A.D. 900 because the proxy data for that time frame are sparse, the committee added.


The committee pointed out that surface temperature reconstructions for periods before the Industrial Revolution -- when levels of atmospheric greenhouse gases were much lower -- are only one of multiple lines of evidence supporting the conclusion that current warming is occurring in response to human activities, and they are not the primary evidence.

The National Research Council is the principal operating arm of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. It is a private, nonprofit institution that provides science and technology advice under a congressional charter.

I'll let Sen. Kennedy know you'll be sending over your draft legislation for the federal response to global climate change, bingo.

Bingo is an individual who knows enough to be dangerous - dangerous to himself that is! He has this innate ability to open his maw VERY wide and isert both feet only to find his coward-ass going splat on the ground beneath him.

Bingo finds it rather romantic to schmooze up to Brutie-Boy and Vic the Alabumpkin and finds himself on the losing end of the debate every time. JC has once again made a fool of a neoconpoop operative armed with little more than a Rush Limbaugh talking point and a limited vocabulary - not very impressive, to say the least.

Hey Bingo - A CLOSED MOUTH GATHERS NO FEET! As for texting in PT - well, go back to wanking - I'll bet you're much better at that than you are at making an iota of sense in PT.

Excellent work JC - keep the hay baler up an running - with so much neocon cattle fodder out there, even minimal downtime will cause a tremendous back-up - you know - back-up, like in a toilet.

I only knew about this story in passing yet still roughly knew what the NAS thought. Why didn't bingo check the NAS on his own weeks ago? A lot of the information is free.

The earth has been warming since the ice age. What don't you get?

Yes, we have global warming. It's not anything new. Can't you guys worry about curing cancer instead of something that's going to happen whether you do anything about or not?

You're right, the earth has been warming since the last ice age, and that ice age may have been caused by a comet impact. But I'm sure the pimply face leftyz will say Al Gore can stop comets.

LOL anonymous. If anything can chill the earth its the scary stare and comments of the star democrat, John Kerry.

I thought the issue was of an exacerbated rate of warming, and of the long term health effects of the warming and the causes thereof. Why do you assume we don't have people working on both problems simultaneously? Do you have evidence that one distracts from the other to any detrimental degree? If you don't, it will look like you're trying to distract from this issue.

creeper....let me just say this. There is no fucking way that a guy with no sack and absolutely no class could possibly be leadership in the military.

You have absolutely no morals, no backbone, and your obvious tough guy routine smacks of a little man that gets sand kicked in his face all of the time.

And by the way, who the fuck ever told you that you won a debate on paltalk? The most I've ever seen from you is a weak insult or two...Stay on the porch bitch, its rough out here in the yard.
