    We haven't discussed Climate Change in this website for a while. Most people's views are fixed, one way or another. Anyway, to broaden one's perspective, I thought these charts prepared by Bloomberg based on NASA data are worth a thousand words each. Scroll down for each category. Impressive.

    What's Really Warming the World?

    Still a skeptic?

    You don't have to convince me; my airco bill says enough. But try to convince the evangelicals; they know everything better and all of them can "walk on water" over a while.

    Yes, I am still a skeptic. Nasa ignored the satalite data that shows no warming for the last 18 years.

    Also, if the US stopped all carbon emissions the contribution to the greenhouse effect would drop about .28%. My Valedictorian son figured that one out in class. The sun is responsible for warming and cooling: redicecreations.com/article.php?id=13459

    I guess the church told you so; no polar ice is melting either; the world is only 6000 years old; neanderthals were born yesterday and vote Republican.

    Tennessee Treader -- The website, Climate Depot, that you referenced is run by a guy named Marc Morano, who has no climate science expertise. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at George Mason University. His bio from Source Watch:

    "Until spring of 2009, Morano served as communications director for the Republicans on the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. Morano commenced work with the committee under anti-science Senator James Inhofe, who was majority chairman of the committee until January 2007 and is now minority ranking member. In December 2006 Morano launched a blog on the committee's website that largely promotes the views of climate change skeptics.

    Morano was a journalist with Cybercast News Service (CNS), which is owned by the conservative Media Research Center. CNS and Morano were the first source in May 2004 of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth claims against John Kerry in the 2004 presidential election, and in January 2006 of similar smears against Vietnam war veteran John Murtha..

    Morano was "previously known as Rush Limbaugh's 'Man in Washington,' as reporter and producer for the Rush Limbaugh Television Show, as well as a former correspondent and producer for American Investigator, the nationally syndicated TV newsmagazine."

    You know...I think the credentials of the NASA scientists are better than that of Marc Morano. I can appreciate why he does what he does, however. Exxon Mobil is one of the big contributors to his website. Follow the money and each to his own. I kind of like scientists.

    Tennessee -- Oh I forgot to comment on your other website reference, Red Ice Creations. Here's a short write-up on that website:

    Red Ice Creations (tagline: "For the Seeker") is a website run since 2003 by Henrik Palmgren of Sweden, who bills himself as a "filmmaker, radio host, musician, editor, director, researcher & graphics designer",[2] with assistance from Fredrik Palmgren (apparently his older brother), Lana Lokteff and Elizabeth Leafloor.[3] It hosts a large amount of greatly varied content related, among others, to conspiracy theories, the paranormal, pseudohistory and medical woo. The site looks fairly professional and operates on a subscription basis. It has three sections: "Red Ice Radio", which has audio-only podcasts, "Red Ice TV", which contains documentaries, and a news section. The news section mainly reprints articles from other sites, including Pravda.ru, PrisonPlanet, Infowars and newspapers such as Guardian and Daily Mail, but also has some original content. Its viewpoint can be best described as fractally wrong.

    Links to crank celebrities such as David Icke and Richard Hoagland feature prominently on the right sidebar. The news section frequently features content from Alex Jones media. It appears the site has a right wing political stance, as it features conservative sexual ethics,[4] green-baiting,[5] extreme euroscepticism,[6] and reactionary gun nuttery.[7] On the other hand, the pattern of articles suggests that the site is anti-Zionist.

    Thanks Tennessee for providing me the source of your insight. I think I now understand how you think.

    Schmidt, As always your contributions are priceless. Thank you.

    I find it so hard to believe that so many believe what they chose to. Don't get in the way of those making huge profits even if it's killing the planet. If it's what your chosen politicians are saying, it must be true. SAD.

    NASA uses the satellite data when it supports their case and ignores it when it does not. Why?

    Schmidt and T.J. yes I'm glad Schmidt tells the truth and researches everything he writes; excellent indeed.

    But you know better, don't you????? All you religious nut bags are smarter than the NASA scientists.......Go get a degree in engineering before you discount the FACTS from real science......Go read you bible about climate....you know, the part where Adam and Eve were speaking to a Lizard...God made sure it was sunny and slightly clouded that day

    The term "indoctrinated" comes to mind as Climate Change deniers struggle to find legitimate sources to counter the findings of the scientists of this world. So they grasp...

    Schmidt, how can you say that? Nobody is "indoctrinated" here!!! Did'nt you know? Sorry this world is flat and only 6000 years old and will last at least another 6000 years if we close our eyes and go bravely to church as well keep blessing our military.

    They are also indoctrinated by a major political party who has dug their heads so far into the sand they have almost been swallowed whole. I will never forget the day Jim Inhoffe, the Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, brought a snowball onto the Senate floor in an attempt to disprove global climate change. How could we ever change deniers minds when we are up against garbage like that?!

    Also our great Evangelical Republican Governor Scott, denounced global warming and Climate change; the words are no longer allowed in this State's government. Talking about assholes. In the meantime this guy is polluting all our beaches because he gets plenty money from the polluters. What a country.

    Dutch -- It doesn't matter about being on the right side of the issues. Florida is just like the other states. Only 43 percent of you guys showed up to vote in 2014, and Scott won by a very small margin. You have 13.9 million voter eligible people in Florida but only 6 million voted. That's how Republicans win again and again and again. Liberals don't care enough to vote, especially in midterm elections. They would rather bitch about government than getting off their asses and doing something about it. Florida isn't alone of course.
