The number of Americans who believe that anthropogenic global warming is occurring is dropping dramatically every year. Al Gore hardest hit:

NEW YORK, July 11 (UPI) — Three-quarters of Americans say natural disasters are on the increase, but fewer than ever believe the climate is heating up, a new poll finds.
[...]
Only 44 percent say they “believe the theory” that carbon dioxide emissions are warming the Earth, down from 51 percent in 2009 and 71 percent in 2007, but most movement has been into the “not sure” column.

Check out this NPR article: Climate change: Public skeptical, scientists sure

It might as well be entitled “Who you gonna believe, the smart people or the stupid people?”

Who do I believe? I continue to believe in the common sense abilities of ordinary Americans who instinctively know to be skeptical of a man who tells us we’re going to die from carbon emissions and rising oceans but who continues to fly on a private jet and recently bought a seaside mansion. If Al Gore wants Americans to believe what he’s saying, he should first behave as if he believes what he’s saying.

We peasants might not have Ph.D’s, but we sure as hell can spot a scammer.

    Poor, poor Al.

    It seems the more ManBearPig blusters the less folk he musters.

    It is a surprisingly slow process but at least the people are regaining their common sense. Let's hope it gets a little faster

    And NPR? They can blow it out their ass…

    I work with a politically diverse group of people and none of them are offended by my Al Gore jokes. He really has become a laughing stock.

    I heard it was "sex-starved poodle" but I like MBP too!

    "down from 51 percent in 2009 and 71 percent in 2007,"

    That's what we in the biz like to call a freaking freefall! Right in alignment w/ Obie's Approval Rating. 20% drop in two years is the only thing 'I' see that qualifies as a Sea Change?

    Let's see can we drop 20% in (1) year! ( Funny how staring down the barrel of Depression, Double-digit Unemployment and DEFAULT sobers one up doesn't it? )

    Ask your average global warming pinhead the definition of carbon dioxide and they'll tell you it's that smoky stuff that comes out of a car's tailpipe. Tell them all plant life need CO2 to live and they'll give you a look like a chicken watching a card trick.

    I just heard a scientist (don't remember his specialty) in the last week or so that we will be entering into a colder cycle because of the lack of sun spot activity predicted (until around 2050 I think)

    I remember a couple of years ago or so somebody went to a campus and passed a petition to "ban CO2" and of course most people signed the death warrant for every bit of plant life on the planet.

    Albore brags about his 2,500ish sciencey folk who have agreed to agree with each other (formed a consensus) that the evidence says man is causing climate change. A group of 31,479ish actual scientists have agreed to agree with the evidence which says man is not effecting the climate ! That`s more than 12 times as many real scientists saying ManBearPig needs to chase his poodle for some chockra action or something, `cause his climate knowledge is non-existent !

    "and they'll give you a look like a chicken watching a card trick."

    So stealing that!

    dancer mom,

    Here in the Pacific Northwest we are in the deep clutches of the PDO. Pacific Decadal Oscillation. It's a 20 to 30 yr. cycle that occurs quite naturally every 100 years or so. Think of it as a "toggle switch". Right now in Salem, Oregon it's mid-60's and raining! Our temp's YTD have been 8 to 10 deg. BELOW 'normal'
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_decadal_osci

    The GW/Peak Oil Cult/Sect/Religion crowd here in the PNW are beside themselves w/ grief! They just don't know what to do?

    Mother Earth didn`t get the memo ! She just doesn`t understand how important Mr SpottedOwlBore is !?

  11. cdl on July 12th, 2011 1:37 pm

    It would be believable it it weren't for the fact that the earth is warmed by the sun.

  12. SignPainterGuy on July 12th, 2011 1:40 pm

    Too simple !

    The Liberal Media seems to be on break this morning, so I'll pick up the cudgel and point out that while criticizing Al Gore for hypocrisy and ignorance is, as we peasants say, correct, it's also racism because, uh…because…well, just because it is. So there!

    What is most appalling about the pseudo science of global warming ("climate change" … or whatever euphemism is employed to mask the global tyranny behind it) is the sheer arrogance of it. The Earth is a very BIG planet. How can anyone postulate much less preach that our presence alone (w/o all the technology) can irreparably alter something so vast and impenetrable (atmosphere included)?

  15. SignPainterGuy on July 12th, 2011 6:11 pm

    People are ignorant and easily frightened by their betters. A solution to their fears so easy as handing over some cash without actually having to do anything is almost to good to be true………
