I know this comment is six years old, but...six years later, it's more proven than ever that we have a direct impact on the climate. You can't still think it's a "sham," can you? Yes we do harm the planet, with immense loss of biodiversity over the past century that could have been avoided.

Ice is, in fact, thinning.

Actually not that big a difference because ice bergs are actually INCREASING in Norway.
So 'Global' is a misnomer too.

Then again Global Warming means whatever we're told to believe it does.

Oh naturally. ANYTHING against what you believe is 'biased writing'.

You didn't even read it because you disagreed with it.
We call that 'ignorance' by definition.

That and this sycophantic picture tell me your indoctrination is well in place. No wonder you're so furious about thinking.

It's a girl, and it's not funny. It's a rather realistic interpretation. If we don't stop burning away our atmosphere and the worlds health, we will literally raise the temperature to the point that the atmosphere has withered away and the global climate will collapse.

Where's the like button to this? =) Because that's exactly what it is. Human-accelerated.
Because the global warming would come, sooner or later (I mean, seriously, it's not the first time this is happening...), we're "just" speading things up a bit...

Love the picture anyways =D

You sure you're just not confusing wind farms for a solar convection heater? You know, those are two VERY different things.

"1. the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend."
The irony of the statement was that the imagery of the picture is so obvious, one would not expect someone to say "I don't get it." Therefor, the statement is ironic because it is the opposite of the expected reaction (ie, someone 'getting it').
Hey, you're right. I have no idea what this 'iron-ic' is.

By 'use your head' you mean 'doubt the narrative'

Sorry. I prefer thinking to your definition.

A lot of others do too. Prepare for a LOT of disappointment. Many people just don't buy the scare tactics anymore and actually looked into the issue, determining that the methods designed to stop pollution and 'Global Warming' create most of it themselves.

Wind farms = convection heating

Hybrids = poisonous lead mines

Oops.
