Re: “The Skinny

Supervisor Miller seems to think that the County must give special consideration to her demands because she and the people who support her have some sort of 'rights' that the rest of us don't enjoy when the tables are turned . . . for example, when a GOP-dominated system, like the AZ Legislature or Congress, is the venue. Further, she seems to believe that the County needs to cut costs for the majority of tax payers while spending MORE money to accommodate and address the concerns of her minority of supporters. She needs to be replaced.

Re: “The Skinny

Actually W Corvi I heard Sen Markey say last Christmas that it was the coldest Christmas on record, and that "it was proof of global warming." Then last week Bernie Sanders said, "65 degrees on Christmas Day in New York is proof of global warming."

So if I listened to those hoping for gw any change is proof, yet most all of the original errors in calculations were caused by incorrect computer modeling.

How about you tell us, what is the perfect temperature for the earth and how will we maintain it?

Re: “The Skinny

It isn't about declaring war, it's about being prepared for it. December 7 just passed. Ever hear of Pearl Harbor? ISIS has declared war on us, but our President will not acknowledge it, for some unknown reason.

The US Constitution requires elected officials to protect it's citizens.

War. War. War. War. War. War. War. War. War. War. War. War. The Border. Congresswoman McSally cares nothing about real people with real problems.

Re: “The Skinny

War. War. War. War. War. That's all Congresswoman McSally ever talks about. I don't remember Congress declaring war on anyone. If she still wants to shoot her missiles off, she should re-enlist.

Re: “The Skinny

So Kirkpatrick rips McCain who voted the same as Raul Grijalva, but she doesn't mention Raul?

What a party hack!

Re: “The Skinny

Well, well, well.

Major theories about what causes temperatures to rise have been thrown into doubt after NASA found the Earth has cooled in areas of heavy industrialisation where more trees have been lost and more fossil fuel burning takes place.

Environmentalists have long argued the burning of fossil fuels in power stations and for other uses is responsible for global warming and predicted temperature increases because of the high levels of carbon dioxide produced - which causes the global greenhouse effect.

While the findings did not dispute the effects of carbon dioxide on global warming, they found aerosols - also given off by burning fossil fuels - actually cool the local environment, at least temporarily.

Looks like you could all be wrong. Got to love NASA's timing of this release:

Re: “The Skinny

Asphalt increases surface temperatures more dramatically than any other effect. Have we paved anything since 1905? Why is anybody surprised? Come on people.

Re: “The Skinny

David W says "Climate change is caused by factors that include oceanic processes...variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics and volcanic eruptions"

That's true but those don't account for anything close to all of the warming.

"None of the natural processes can account for the overall warming trend in global surface temperatures. In the 100 years from 1905 to 2005, the temperature trends produce by all three natural influences are at least an order of magnitude smaller than the observed surface temperature trend" http://www.woodhous.arizona.edu/geog453013…

Re: “The Skinny

W Corvi if reduction efforts are too effective and temps actually drop too much our food crops will be destroyed. How would you counter act efforts that go too far?

Re: “The Skinny

David W - the fact is you have no clue what you are talking about. NONE! I do greenhouse models albeit on Venus, but that is a testing ground for earth models. How do YOUR climate models handle the increased cloud feedback? How do YOUR climate models handle the air-ground interface? Oh, you don't HAVE climate models? So you just repeat what you hear (and want to believe) on Faux Noise? GREAT! Now shut up!

Re: “The Skinny

Maybe it won't take 50 years to get to the truth of this fraud:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s reliance on poorly-sited weather stations to calculate surface temperatures is inflating the warming trend of the U.S. and maybe even the rest of the world, according to a landmark study looking at three decades of data.

“The majority of weather stations used by NOAA to detect climate change temperature signal have been compromised by encroachment of artificial surfaces like concrete, asphalt, and heat sources like air conditioner exhausts,” Anthony Watts, a seasoned meteorologist and lead author of the study

Not to mention all the hot air coming from left-wing stooges like Raul the Fool. If he's for something you know it can't be right.

Re: “The Skinny

Then he must have mentioned this:

Climate change is caused by factors that include oceanic processes (such as oceanic circulation), biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics and volcanic eruptions,....

Re: “The Skinny

An oceanography professor explained climate change to us back in 1975 (not a typo). The science has been around a long time, and so has sticking one's head in the sand.

Re: “The Skinny

That's because you are quite easily duped by things you want to believe. Like governments creating problems and stealing your rights to TRY to solve them. 50 years from now the truth will be known, and I wonder if you will have learned anything.

Fixing social security would have been simpler.

Re: “The Skinny

So the climate deniers now must think that they know more than . . . not only 99.9999% of the working atmospheric scientists but 99.999% of all the World governments! Sounds like a mental problem to me.

Re: “The Skinny

While McCain isn't the answer and he should worry, matter fact they should all worry. However, God help us if we end up with an immature amateur like Donald Trump... what are we in elementary calling people names? Acting as if he has a disability and mimicking signs of those that have it? Insults of race as if he was born in a barn and was kept in a barn with no manners or people skills? We have to have a better answer then this... They should all worry, if they don't then we should.
