Climate alarmists have a new toy with which to play — but it may not be as pleasing as they hope....

Remember this is about climate change, not the non acts of the current president. May I also add that this place is used for comments, as in "Post a Comment". What is a fact for one may only be an opinion for another. This is the exercise of freedom.

Yes it is a hindrance when you need the permission to investigate from the leader accused of using the chemicals. It is a lot like having the Attorney general Eric Holder investigate himself. I wouldn't expect a rush of information decrying the actions of either!

TOT, Yes Obama did say that the use of chemical weapons would be a game changer. As of now there is no real proof that chemical weapons were used, the united nations is working hard to get the proof that chemical weapons were used so if you have the real proof that chemical weapons were used then give that proof to Obama and the united nations and then see what if anything they do. Other wise get off your soap box and post facts not your foolish crap.

Can any of you liberals explain why you staunchly defend fraud and applaud the baser parts of human nature run amok? I already know the answer, but I'd like to hear some honesty and integrity from a liberal just once even though it conflicts with their ideology.

Lets parse YOUR 'assumption' ok? "Canadians routinely coming across the border seeking health care appears to be relatively small," etc. Lets take a look at the weasel word 'Appears'; as in could be, perhaps, maybe, in my opinion. ALL SUBJECTIVE. At the same time your 'source' admits people from Canada ARE coming to the US for health care and YOU call it an old wives tale while at the same time admitting the truth by trying to argue statistics. No wonder you're confused, your spin has become a blur!!

Remember when Hillary Clinton and President Obama said that the ouster of president Bashar Assad is a matter of days or months but not years? Remember when Obama said that "the use of chemical weapons would be a game changer"? I wonder how many lives would have been saved and how many wouldn't have had to suffer further chemical attacks if the president of the USA acted as he was expected to. Just another example of the liar in chief and his administrations failures not only domestically but GLOBALLY! He has set the US back decades in the war on terror and has increased the resentment, hatred and mistrust for the USA in all of the Arab countries.

In regards to voter fraud - “There is no basis in fact, whatsoever, in these inaccuracies propagated by the Minnesota Majority, none,” Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said Wednesday. “After the most closely scrutinized election in Minnesota history in 2008, there were zero cases of fraud. Even the Republicans lawyers acknowledged that there was no systematic effort to defraud the election, none.” Yet some fool will write a book to stir the pot on voter fraud. Then some bigger fool will cut and paste it here and state that it's fact.

"Steven Katz and colleagues depicts this popular perception as more myth than reality, as the number of Canadians routinely coming across the border seeking health care appears to be relatively small, indeed infinitesimal when compared with the amount of care provided by their own system. Katz is an associate professor in the Departments of Medicine and Health Policy and Management at the University of Michigan." Appears that your assumption regarding Canadians getting health care in the USA seems to be another wives tale.

Drugs, you know that liberals will never answer a direct question. But, as rs often does, they will always swerve into self-indictment if you let them talk. Let them ramble on and they'll defend stupidity, tell you who they are, who they hate, who they fear and what they're up to every time because they never learned how to listen, only talk, isn't that right rs? After all you're the one who admitted you didn't know the terrorist attack by Hassan was deemed workplace violence by the obama administration or never heard of people coming from Canada for medical care in the US. Yup, as I've said before, liberals do not want to know anything that does not further their ideology, what they do know they dismiss as inconvenient and what they don't know, they invent. Rs is our very own poster child for that type of thinking. Thank you sooo much for your valuable example!!!

swizzer, you dint do good in English either, the word you were looking for is Affect not Effect. But I do have a serious question -- IF we (US citizens) are destroying the ozone layer, why is the hole over the South Pole ???

A report from the US National Snow and Ice Data Center in Colorado finds that Arctic summer sea ice has increased by 409,000 square miles, or 26 per cent, since 2007. But didn’t we hear from the same Center that the North Pole was set to disappear by now? We all deserve apologies from the global warming fanatics who wanted to reshape the world in their image and called those who objected to their wild theories ignorant deniers. They were so convinced the world was ending and only they could save it, yet now they have been exposed as at best wildly idealistic and at worst frauds. They should have to do public penance for their hubris. I suggest they sit on blocks of melting ice and ponder their limitations. Either that or let the polar bears deal with them.

It is a scam! Global warming is a progressives plan to redistribute money from those that have to those of their choosing. If in fact global warming is mans fault, the biggest bigot of all is Al Gore, his carbon footprint is global sized as he flies around the world in his fleet of behemoth airplanes blaming others and gathering up money... Noe if you want to talk about PHONY crap, heres Al!

Scare, It's always about fleecing somebody out of money when liberals are involved, including this. I mentioned 2 of the Gasses a volcano puts out but did not mention the #1 output of a volcanic eruption..H2O. As a scientist, you can appreciate the danger of a religious movement that is based on lies and the misunderstanding of the environment. Sounds all too familiar.

Patriot1, I understand weather patterns can't be controlled. My argument is that we can certainly effect them in the same way that releasing CFC's destroys O3, which allows no protection from harmful UV and gases, which effects the natural balance required for things like farming (and remember the 'trees take in CO2 and put out O2' thing?).

And we've seen a huge uptick in cancer rates. To what can we attribute that too?

swizzer, ", I only minored in chemistry (at a excellent school...)," - Really???? Jut because it was an excellent school doesn't mean that you learned anything. And from most of your posts, my guess is that you passed by the skin of your teeth -- or is it tooth????

Ok rs, made an acorn out of absolutely nothing ok? What you refer to is prevention, controlling what we do, not controlling Nature, you can't no matter how much you stamp your feet and insist we're wrong. Go ahead and play make-believe if it makes you happy, We'll just continue to laugh at the childishness of our resident make-believe Lawyer. Where do you get your silly ideas from anyhow? FOX? CNN? MS***? And stop correcting people's grammatical errors you self righteous clown, you make your share of them in case you haven't noticed. A lot of us did but realize you don't need us to point out your failings, you make that obvious quite well yourself.

As an electrical engineer (and hence scientist) I examined this so called manmade climate change. I have knowledge of modeling, system theory, frequency response, chemistry, physics, yada yada yada. So for me it was easy to see that CO2 is a very minor player as it accounts for about 4% of all greenhouse gases and is not nearly as good as H2O at blocking IR. In fact, the water vapor in the air accounts for about 99% of all the greenhouse affect. I looked at the data, I examined the science. The data does not support the conclusion pushed by liberals.

It should be noted that not one of the predictions have come close. There are not more storms of higher intensity. The most conservative estimate of temperature rise is still higher than observed. Sea levels have only risen a couple of inches instead of a couple feet. Glaciers have not melted at the rate they predicted. The entire hypothesis is nothing but baseless fear mongering.

CFC's, PCB's, lead etc. can be minimized and controlled, and those are admirable goals. So far, we cannot control weather patterns and I doubt whether we will ever be able to do so to any significant degree.
