Climate panel warns next 15 years critical April 24, 2014 at 6:48 a.m.

I'm not stupid enough to believe any of the right wing malarkey spouted around here that is passed off as science fact and truth.

Don't give me the bull that Conservatives care about our kids future. The consistent under funding of the IRS is allowing the wealthiest people in this country get away with not paying around 500 billion a year in taxes that they legally owe. That is more than enough to put the government into the black. You under fund higher education so kids are stuck with billions in crushing debt. You want them screwed from all directions.

I'm not going to STFU any time soon. As long as folks I see here and in the Republican Party continue to ignore science at every turn and put the future of my grandchildren and the world in jeopardy. You guys are taking your cues from the fossil fuel industry, which has every reason to try to muddy the discussions on this subject. They stand to lose trillions and they are fighting with every bit of misinformation they can muster. And they will continue just like the tobacco companies did until we are as tired of seeing our world destroyed as we were of seeing friends and family die unnecessarily of cancer. People can end the problems that tobacco causes by stopping smoking but unfortunately the problems we are causing to our climate won’t stop when we wise up, it will continue for hundreds of years...

Climate panel warns next 15 years critical April 20, 2014 at 9:09 a.m.

Grim, what a crock!! Please state your source for that ridiculous statement! They don’t call CO2 and methane greenhouse gasses for nothing. And to say we are entering a cooling phase is total denial of what is even to the blindest observable around us. Every year seems to set global heat records. The first reliable global measurements of temperature from NASA in 1981 showed a modest warming from 1880 to 1980, with only a slight dip in temperatures from 1940 to 1970. Earth’s cooling trend swung back in the warming direction around 1970 and has been warming ever since. Since 1978, global warming has become even more apparent. Over the last 30 years analysis reveals that Earth warmed another 0.5°C, for a total warming of 0.9°C since 1880.

Osage, good for you I'm happy you questioned your doctor. I wish I had questioned the judgment of the one who cut out a big piece of me. When it was first brought up that we were changing our climate for the worse by dumping trillions of tons of CO2 in the atmosphere, I questioned it. So did climate scientists and it is their job to question it. Because they realized how important it was to reach a conclusion about this they have applied every skill they have to proving or disproving it. You can bet every dollar you have they didn’t want to come to the conclusions that they have. Nobody wants human caused climate change to be true – not the scientists, not me, not anyone. But it unfortunately is and we better start dealing with it with the best effort we have.

Virtually everyone writing here will go to a doctor and with little questioning follow their recommendations even when do so will cost 10s of thousands of dollars. We will do that even though studies have shown that doctors misdiagnose approximately 50% of the time. And in most cases the doctor stands to make lots of money off the plan.

Yet when over 95% of the highly trained climate scientists in the world agree that man made climate change is here and there is every reason to believe that the consequences can devastate humanity, you cry foul, call people names and spout nonsense from unqualified people. All of this is proof that the fossil fuel industry has to date succeeded in polluting the discussion and has prevented any meaningful action. Eventually they will be found out just as the tobacco industry was but by then there may be too much damage done.

ACLU challenges Arkansas voter ID law April 17, 2014 at 8:34 a.m.

Florida Republicans are also closing voting stations in areas they they don't like and are proposing to close bathrooms in the ones that are open so people can't wait in line too long to vote. Last election many blacks had to stand in line for hours to vote. None of this is about voter fraud, it's about voter suppression.

Suit filers: Voter-ID law contrary to constitution April 17, 2014 at 6:57 a.m.

Voter ID fraud is virtually non-extant in Arkansas and the US at the individual voter level. Illegal vote activity is more likely to be in vote tampering and voter misinformation campaigns that have happened all to often. Requiring a photo ID to vote is a solution for a non-problem that is going to cost many legitimate voters the right to vote.

What happened to liberalism? April 15, 2014 at 8:32 a.m.

Freedom of speech is not freedom to buy the government. To equate the ability of billionaires to buy elections with “freedom of speech’ is totally absurd. The Supreme Court is paving the way toward an oligarchic form of society in which a handful of billionaires like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson will control our political process for their benefit and their benefit alone.
