Those pillars are obviously not what holds up the White House.

    Ok, here's a truth that puts the Right-wing into total denial: Global climate change is real.

    Now you can't blame Obama for that.

    Perhaps global climate is real but a lot of people disagree. The question then comes, does human behavior cause this or does something else. Records show that climate change has happened over and over in the past million or so years. Perhaps climate change will be beneficial to the world. A good argument against global warming is the fact that the idiot, Al Gore, is pushing the idea.

    Oops, add the word "change" after climate in my first sentence.

    Interesting quotes today. Looking into the conscience of those
    that post in this forum does allow for many to watch and listen.
    That is the point I suspect. This does afford opportunity on both sides left and right to judge the conscience of some. This place is a gate of sorts. So who will open their mouth, they wait to hear. Some very high, and some very low speak. But more listen than speak. The eyes of the world are upon this nation, Who will speak that that is profitable. Who will speak with authority, I'm sure ( they ) listen for.
    I am not about doom and gloom, but only to point the way of understanding both spiritual and physical. You can not have one with out the other.

    The term 'climate change' is purposefully vague and deceptive -- hardly an 'inconvenient truth.' The last thing I want is for mankind to have the power to change the weather! Personally, I like the climate to change -- will the climate changers ever be satisfied? Doubtfully -- storms would be outlawed, rain would be scheduled, temperatures controlled and STILL they would not be happy. CO2 is NOT pollution!
