Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Country people tend to be more honest? Morality is location dependent?????/ pulled that one puts your Arse didn't ya?

Well Doddridge isn't heavily populated and country folk tend to be more honest. So there's that.

The drilling companies probably had to have the roads repaved because the fracking trucks and drilling trucks tend to destroy the road.

Saw a stand like that in Doddridge county last summer while looking at the booming gas drilling. The stand wasn't attended and they had great prices. The more things change, the more they stay the same. The area farmers all seemed to have new tractors, probably from the drilling royalties.The drilling companies had paid to have the road repaved. It was nice to see a lot of people's lives enhanced by fracking.

Population is/will be an issue when and if we see prolonged droughts set up in the food growing regions of the world.

This country couldn't survive a prolonged period were food was scarce. We could biologically survive on a having less food available to us. Its the destabilizing effect on the population thats gonna be the kicker.

Sadly I feel there are more people who would turn to violence in the face of adversity than people who would work together and help each other out.

Case in point. My grandfather used to set out produce he had grown for sell alongside a main state road going out of town with a jar for the money that people would pay him with for the produce...unattended.

Try that today and see what happens.

Myth- specific to coastal flooding,population becomes an issue, when the resources are displaced.of course there are highly compressed populations, but there are many exceptions as well.

The climate does change, has changed, will change. I don't consider myself powerful enough to effect the change one way or another. When the earth decides it's too hot it will puke a few billion tons into the air and cool things off. People will either adapt or die. That has always been the way.

"the fact that the climate is NOT getting warmer."

You have evidence to this? Meaning, do you have evidence that global climate has been staying at a significant and unchanging rate for the last century?

LOL yea there is too much contention like the fact that the climate is NOT getting warmer. Geez you lemmings are .halarious

I myself see no real action coming on the issue of climate change because there is too much contention on the issue.

But actions will be taken once mother nature punches enough of the worlds population right in the face and then they will decide to act.

Actually overpopulation is THE issue.

Its the uncomfortable subject people would rather ignore.

And mother nature will make "corrections" when a growing population hits the limits of the environment they live in.

There are ways to avoid it..but that requires action and intelligence. Neither of which a large population has collectively.

It doesn't matter if its resource depletion or problems with climate change.

Nature which we are a part of will put you in check one way or another.

Once you extend yourself and your environment past the point of survivability only those with the means to survive the new paradigm will be left...everyone else will be dust.

Mother Earth corrects herself for her existence. Earth was here long before man and will probably be here long after. You are nothing but an ant to her. However, as far as resources, less of you leaves more for me, for I like the way Mother Earth thinks. An earthquake here, a volcano there, here a tsunami, there hurricane, ebola here, avian pandemic there, pretty soon the numbers get down to easily sustainability. No one gets out alive, or do you plan on cheating death with freezing your brain in moderate amounts of liquid nitrogen? Oops, too late.

It's not overpopulation,random,it is the shrinking of resources that creates the issue in the to-begin-with.You really believe this planet "corrects herself" to accommodate mans' existence ?

You can dispute the cause of the melt,ithink, but you cannot dispute the physical evidence.

Actually,ithink,an earthquake of that magnitude isn't in the pipeline, now is it?By the way, how is my punctuation ? (:

I notice many here—Kendall being a notable exception--seem to condemn all the members of a perceived group for the sins of one member.

Harry Reid, Al Gore, and Rush Limbaugh don’t post here. We do.

Stereotyping leads to unproductive discourse and fractured relationships. We could learn more if we regarded one another as well-meaning individuals with good intentions instead of representatives of some group we consider evil.

It's not run, run, run. It's submit, submit, submit. Give all knowing Big Government CONTROL over all things and life will be wonderful, even though they admit nothing will help. It we just throw more money at it they know it will be better. The Lefts only known solution.

Don't worry, be happy. Mother Earth has a tendency to self-correct herself when things get bad. Something that might happen 50-100 years out leaves plenty of time for Earth to do what it takes to balance out. Wars, pestilence, disease, whatever may remove enough of the overpopulation that it won't be the major problem some feel that it. BTW: Nice save Kendall.

Run, run, run !!!!!!

Actually, an earthquake will get you sooner. And more credibly. Man is so puny and thinks he is so powerful.

Just keep in mind that the ice packs/glaciers are proven to be melting at alarming rates,...that sea levels,at these rates will raise 15"-20" in 50-100 yrs. Also, there is the exodus of humanity from the coastal regions worldwide,and borders will be insignificant.Whatever the cause, the result will be catastrophic. This is the greatest challenge to mankind,.... evah!!!!

Oops, I meant, "We should also keep in mind that the majority of the Left are NOT accurately represented by Obama, Pelosi or Reid."
