Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

False Prophet and TV Preacher Pat Robertson has informed his flock that Climate Change is something they should welcome because its such a great thing,

Steve Goreham:...the periods in history show that warmer periods have actually been better for civilization, we seem to have less extreme weather, we have longer growing seasons, and we have more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere now which is actually greening the planet.

Pat Robertson: Its greening the planet?

Steve Goreham: Its greening the planet!

Pat Robertson:  That's good!

Steve Goreham: Yes it is!

Steve Goreham: The problem is though we haven't had warming for 16 years, and all the climate models are wrong. People should be rejoicing in Bangladesh, and the Maldive Islands, and New York City and San Francisco. Its unlikely that we'll see catastrophic ocean level rise.  
Those celebrations and rejoicing will never take place. Its complete fiction.

Every single claim Steve Goreham made on Robertson's show is complete nonsense and without any foundation in fact. Steve Goreham also claims that "our leaders have been captured by the false ideology of Climatism!"

Steve Goreham background includes a Masters in Electrical Engineering and an MBA from the University of Chicago. He has no expertise in climate science at all, but is still presented as an expert by the outfits promoting fake science like the Heartland Institute.    



You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Extended (Optional)
