This is arguably the most blantly dishonest post I have ever read. Your tactics are not tricking anyone. First should I make a post that does the exact same thing as you, and name a whole bunch of "idiots" like Rush Limbaugh who say it is fake and then some scientists who say it is real like Michael Oppenheimer? Would it really prove anything? I can make both lists even longer then your lists, which I guess proves that your wrong.

Also, you are using Appeal to Authority fallacy. So your whole argument is bunk from the get go.

I have just been reading that thread about coffee shortages due to the climate change, may be he has not had his coffee this morning. But on a more serious level are our crops being affected by the climate changes that are happening now. The price of potatoes have gone up due the amount of rainfall we had this year, which has given us a poor harvest.

Climate change deniers are nincompoops.

Oil companies are already in negotiations for drilling rights in areas that are, today, inaccessible, but that they know full well will be VERY accessible within a decade.

Fourth Largest Publicly Traded Oil Company Calls Arctic Offshore Oil Drilling A Potential ‘Disaster’

Quote:
Last week a British parliamentary committee called for a halt to drilling in the Arctic Ocean until necessary steps are taken to protect the region from the potentially catastrophic consequences of an oil spill.

The shocking speed at which the Arctic sea ice is melting should be a wake-up call to the world that we need to phase out fossil fuels fast,” said committee chair Joan Walley MP. “Instead we are witnessing a reckless gold rush in this pristine wilderness as big companies and governments make a grab for the world’s last untapped oil and gas reserves.”

German bank WestLB announced it would not provide financing to any offshore oil or gas drilling in the region, saying the “risks and costs are simply too high.”

Insurance giant Lloyd’s of London issued a report warning that responding to an oil spill in a region that is “highly sensitive to damage” would present “multiple obstacles, which together constitute a unique and hard-to-manage risk.”
