There is no movement in the United States to kill people in the name of second amendment rights but there is a movement that has murdered 1,200,000 children in the name of women's rights

The silver tongued talking heads on the magic living room box would have us believe that the country is in an uproar over the alleged murders of 26 people at an elementary school in Newtown, CT. An investigation is still pending. But the allegations are flying. Generally speaking, the anti-constitutionalists who don't own guns, have never fired guns and certainly have limited ability to identify them, would be willing to take away one of our most important constitutional right because they believe it would make them more "safe". None of the gun violence in America has been committed in the name of gun rights. Also, keep in mind, these anti-constitutionalists generally are of the same demographic that also believes that murdering 1,200,000 American children in 2012 in the name of women's rights is acceptable.

It doesn't matter how much we reduce emissions if we don't have ways and means of dealing with shifting seasonal weather patterns and the effects that will have on our country.

We need to be flexible in our thinking when it comes to climate change. We need to be prepared to act quickly so that potential disruptions can be dealt with quickly and efficiently.

But that can't happen because we have the most do nothing government in our history.

I should have added that we are in an inter-glacial period. The Ice Age never really ended. Its just receded. The recession is troublesome because of what can potentially happen when the northern Ocean is free of ice during the summer. The water will absorb a lot more energy.

I predict that will seriously jack with the worlds weather patterns.

But just so its clear here's what I feel we should do about it. I am not sure if limiting carbon emissions and all that is put forth with that is the way to go. To me there are two courses of action. Both will be expensive. One we can shift away from a carbon based economy. And two we can try to adapt to the changes that are coming. The first will only work if the whole world is acting with the same goal. Fat chance on that happening. The second one seems to be the one we need to focus on.

I disagree with that. Because if we are at 4000 year average low then why have glaciers all across the planet and the northern ice cap melted off to historical lows?

There are glaciers that were around when I was born that are totally gone now.

That and scientists are noticing plants and animals moving northward along with an increased amount of plant growth in the northern latitudes.

This planet is warmer now than it was say during WW2 and even farther back.

The truth is also like a nasty tasting medicine. Sweeten it up and people may be more willing to take it.

Like I said before no one listens to an a55hole.

There are alarmists in everything! LOL!

But I agree with you on the media. I dont watch any of it.

But I must ask where you got the info pertaining to global temperature average.

Abortion lets talk about that. First let me say I get where each side is coming from. And I can respect both. But the way in which the message is conveyed from both sides just ticks each side off at each other. Therefor no rational debate takes place.

Republicans would do well to calm down what they say and present it in a different but more palatable manner. Appeal to abortion supporters by making the case the being against abortion isn't about being anti-choice but having a deep respect for life from the moment of conception until death. And that no body is wanting to limit choice but preserve precious life.

Yelling murderers just p1sses people off.

Combine these three factors and you have a textbook recipe for yellow journalism; a perfect storm representing all the reasons why people no longer trust the mainsteam media to be fair, balanced and accurate.

The scientific record shows quite clearly that current temperatures are significantly cooler than the 4,000-year average, yet the media uses a seriously flawed study to claim the opposite. Global warming alarmists put their trust in the media, while global warming realists put their trust in the science.

. There are several reasons for this.

First, the news media is prone to overhype the news events of the day. Hype sells newspapers and attracts viewers. This is the case for all news topics and certainly applies to global warming.

Second, fear captivates people. This is one of the reasons why television and print news contains so much bad news and so little good news. A single breathless report of impending global warming doom is going to rope in more viewers and readers than a whole collection of reports explaining that current temperatures are actually quite cool in historical perspective.

Third, it is no secret that the media drifts left on many issues, and drifts left on environmental issues in particular.

" You are allowing them to do so if you dont try and stop them."

How can I stop them when everyone else is slap fighting each other and thumbing their noses at each other?

When the lemmings run to the cliff the smart ones step the heck out of the stream and let everyone else dive off the cliff.

I'm just one guy caught in the current.
