    These statistics are simply an unusual year.

    (bunch of numbers here showing an exceptional cold and wet year).

    (bunch of numbers here showing it's cold in other parts of the world)

    (bunch of stuff here about solar and wind subsidies, and lies about Solyndra)

    (collection of pseudoscience nonsense showing CO2 is harmless and some stuff about sun spots)

    (stuff here from fake and real scientists who publish nonsense in fake science journals or manage to slip some junk by reviewers of real journals)

    (More muddy water with lies and misrepresentation to confuse people who don't pay attention)

    Since denialists prowl the internet looking to manipulate the truth with their garbage, I thought I'd just try and save them some time by posting a synopsis of their irrational responses.

    •  But is change inevitable? Reversing Climate Change (0+ / 0-)

      seems improbable. See solutions to global warming on any search engine for dim view of any success.
      Is the world really going to stop using meat as a source of protein?
      Are developing countries and China and India really going to turn to alternative forms of energy?
      What is the plan to SOLVE climate change?

      Some...spoke with strong and powerful voices, which proclaimed in accents trumpet-tongued,"I am beautiful, and I rule". Others murmured in tones scarcely audible, but exquisetly soft and sweet, "I am little, and I am beloved"." Armandine A.L. Dupin

        getting people, especially policymakers, to stop listening to the lies being told by Big Energy and its political/media mouthpieces, and start listening to actual scientists. Until that happens, those policymakers will continue to make decisions that are sentencing us to A Very Bad Future.

      •  Actually, China leads the world in solar (0+ / 0-)

        Our government is one of the few who don't see the writing on the wall.

        There is NO choice.  We WILL change to renewable energy and other renewable resources.  The only question is, how much suffering will we have to go through because we were such fools to even remotely believe the denialists? The answer seems to be, a lot.
