Well, there’s a couple of things I would say: First, even if geenhouse gases aren’t that much of a problem, the oceans are being polluted. Secondly, there are issues with our local government. A little more “Think globally act locally”, would be a good thing.
2 heads of the IRS resigning. Hmmmmm more far right?
Once again, when the far-right can come up with a front-runner the country can get solidly behind, I may even vote for them. (I worship no party).
Until then, I agree with the current GOP leaders in keeping their distance from the Palins, Becks and Bachmanns.
Where’s your candidate…..I might have the answer to your question….I noticed last week Dennis Rodman was bad-mouthing President Obama on a news network and story..If anyone doesn’t know who Dennis Rodman is,please “google” it…Anyway,I’ve got a Republican ticket in 2016 that they can run with….Dennis Rodman for President !!!!…and his… Read more »
OMG Wayne .. really? Dennis Rodman? I don’t know about that LOL … Yeah not surprising.
ooh good point….. I take it back…fool
Anybody that reverts to childish name calling should go back to the childish social circles where it is accepted, not on the comment section of a blogging site. If you can’t get your point across, name calling isn’t helping.
uh oh. tom o called it like he see’s it, now he’s gona get called all kinds of nasty names.
Tom O calls it like Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck and Coulter see it.
And it’s always the same story with those with minds of their caliber –
“Liberals (aka Democrats) are the Devil!”
Thank God I live in oh-so-wonderfully liberal California!
Sorry Dr. Facts .. He called it as he sees it, and you call him all sorts of things for saying how he feels, that is the fashion … you don’t like what someone says … slam them and try to denounce them.
Nightly, I watch Rachel Maddow, Al Sharpton, Chris Matthews, the guy that looks like Maddow, and some other stone faced guy [Laurence Odonnell.]….spew out the hate and lies ever single day so dont act like it only comes from the right.Limbaugh hasnt been significant since the Lewinsky stain. I dont… Read more »
Tom O….With your above post,you sound like a VERY angry man…..
No Wayne, I don’t see anger, I see frustration with seeing how stupid things get at time, and so complicated.
I totally get how he feels, I think we all … to some extent, feel frustration with things.
Big Al, are you referring to the frustration of invading a country (in search of WMDs that were non-existent) and bankrupting the U.S. trying to pay for that mistake?
@Big Al @Tony C. @Tom O. We need consensus on getting money out of politics! It’s not a Right Vs Left battle its a right and left battle (united battle). So its best to stop letting mainstream news “fuel your fury” For all you that favor right over left look… Read more »
Tom O. You seem well-versed on the subject of the far-right. Hate to break this to you but the far-right dominates talk-radio. Who started it all? Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but can you be so kind as to give an explanation as to why the GOP has officially… Read more »
And who dominates the so called news on the big 4 networks? Hardly the right, Id say thats balance……….?
Tom O. That’s where you went WRONG! You can’t give any faith in the “establishment media” you can’t allow that to fill in the blank for anything, as if you are getting the whole story (I personally can’t stand all the neutrality, we need more people asking the right questions,… Read more »
They want division Jerry .. the name of the game, keep everyone divided, pissed off at each other and everything that is going on. Then they can do what they want when no one is looking, because they are too busy pissing and moaning about everyone and everything. It’s all… Read more »
Yep. And we can slap that big bully back with the Wolf-PAC plan. I swear I am gonna keep shoving it in y’alls face’s, and good thing about Wolf-PAC is you can help without having to contribute with $$$, just research and giving some time to see how you can… Read more »
Yeah .. it just takes action! Jackson!
Give me a Break Tom O. I go back and I look at old G.H.W Bush clips and I wonder how the heck he got in office and how he stayed in? And remember the surplus we had when he came into office? Let get this straight! it was the… Read more »
the dislikes are in denial! Or just hating, plain and simple. .
Say what you want about the dislikes, you won’t please everyone, and if the consensus is showing one way or the other, it is a pretty good indication where people stand in relation to what you’re saying, what anyone is saying, and how it is said. Just saying.
Yeah that’s true, also have to take into account the audience, I mean when you look at last year’s presidential election, and how inyo county voted, they were in line with how alabama voted “just saying”. At least mono county is more in line with California. In that same election… Read more »
Umm .. in line with Alabama? What does that mean? .. What does Inyo counties vote have to do in relation to how Alabama and California voted, er the rest of California, including Mono County? If it led to the establishment’s interest as you say, then that just shows how… Read more »
@Big Al, Thanks for your time and piece of mind. The statistics on how the people voted in the election percentage wise were in line with each other, for example, I recollect inyo voted around 75% (what was his name again) oh yeah Mr. “Corporations are people my friend” Willard… Read more »
Prop 37 failed because most of us saw so many no campaign ads it worked to convince a high majority to vote no when a yes was a clear win. All that money poured into campaigns from bigdonors allows those campaigns and candidates to have the resources to have billboards,… Read more »
Tom O. I feel your pain. A lot of angry people are gravitating to this blog with subtle and not-so-subtle political party propaganda. If you look at the first posting, you will notice the subject matter was instantly changed. And so the political war ensues. Unfortunately, EVERYTHING today is of… Read more »
bust out your hairspray and oversized sport utilities,im fishing the lakes basin in may!!!
Tioga Pass is open….but a has- been conservative radio talk host is what bunches up everyones panties……..Mono County has a new sheriff, but Mr Limbaugh wants to destroy the country. June Mountain is re-opening next season, but evil ‘neocons’ want to force children to smoke cigarettes and pollute the streams.… Read more »
I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who say it is a crisis treat it like a crisis.
Anybody believe that Al Gore’s carbon footprint is smaller today than it was when he wrote Earth in the Balance?
“We should be fingerprinting environmentalists..”
Conservative spokesperson, Ann Coulter
MICHELE BACHMANN CLAIMED THAT CARBON DIOXIDE IS ‘HARMLESS’: In 2008, a Stanford scientist revealed “direct links” between increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and “increases in human mortality” — globally, he found that as many as “20,000 air-pollution-related deaths per year per degree Celsius may be due to… Read more »
then stop breathing please, just stop..btw are you a scientist?
Tony Cumia (as this blogger calls himself) is yet another shock jock of the conservative talk-radio circuit. He is clearly racist and his far-right fans (who have always had a gigantic problem with black presidents being elected) .
A White, Christian Nation is their credo.
It’s not like the skeptics take the scientist word’s into account anyways.
Dr. Facts .. you seem to be the only racist here, making the biggest stink about racism, in your delivery.
Yeah we all could use some review on Physics, Geography, and common sense.
And stop thinking we can continue to make up the rules as we go.
your “listening to Rush” comment is quite telling (Emphasis on the word Rush).
First-name basis, eh?
What does that tell you, Steve?
And I know, I know, “Nobody ever listens to Rush … you dirty liberal, you!”
“My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times building.”
“God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, “Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It’s yours.”
– Another wacked-out conservative spokesperson, Ann Coulter.
If Ann Coulter looked like Ruth Bader Ginsberg no one would give her the time of day.
No new news today, just the same stuff that has been here all weekend. Is Bennet Kessler ok?
I’ve been on vacation! Back now.
Just wanted to say that,,, I for one am glad to have you back. You were missed.
Hope you had a great vacation!
You’ve been listening to Rush since 1994? You need to turn off your radio now and stop this obsession. Go throw a frisbee or something. Fresh air and sunlight will do you some good.
The obsession you speak of are those posters (probably you included) who champion that drug-riddled, clinically obese “people-hater adored by people- haters” – Gerry Spence, attorney, and whose postings sound exactly like this far-right fascist icon. Otherwise, you would simply ignored any criticism directed towards this monster who is bent… Read more »
“This monster who is bent on further division in the country”. Sir, please do not slander President Obama in such a vulgar way.
Sorry Tourbillon – The country, and in fact the GOP in general is wise to the destructive nature of the Neoconservative movement (which Timothy McVeigh was a part of) and playing cute trying to emulate of its heroes Rush Limbaugh or Ann Coulter is flying only with minds of their… Read more »
Oh, please, Tourbillon! Your sly attack on the president of the United States (and government in general) is the very same BS attacks that Limbaugh has been pulling on the Democratic Party since the Clinton era when the word “liberal” was first demonized and used as a catch-all for the… Read more »
Your insouciant if not scurrilous attack on my defense of our President is risky, to say the least. I can only hope you do not find yourself the subject of a politically motivated IRS audit, or have your phones tapped as was the AP’s. Nonetheless, you have my respect for… Read more »
Right on Tourbillon!
Most of the climate change is due to what nature is doing, what the earth is doing in this cycle. Man is not the blame for it, what we do is not helping anything, that is for sure. Our impact has to have some consequence, it can not be that… Read more »
Lots of words. Empty assertions with no data or supporting evidence to back up your assertions. Look up the definition of B.S.
Ken I obviously know what the definition of BS is, I wonder if you do? You can post all the links you want on slanted studies for either side, but the evidence is right in front of us not in some BS study or report.
Pull your head out Big Al. There is no way that man is not responsible for the degree of climate change we are experiencing. Go to LA Harbor and look at the green cloud hovering over that port due to all the cargo ships running their engines. There is a… Read more »
“You have to be willfully and deliberately ignorant to think mankind is not slowly but surely ruining this planet.”
I absolutely agree. As I’ve said before a little birth control would go a long ways.
Bring on the Bird Flu, the World is over populated.
Desert tortoise .. after you … I did not say we are not responsible for it, if you read my post more than just glancing over it, you will find that I stated we are in part responsible for it, but nature is doing it’s thing for the most part,… Read more »
Big Al, Yes we have to be real about, but first we need to come to a consensus that we have a problem. Most of the developed countries have their perspective of whats going on with the planet and how it is utilized, Unfortunately our general public is so polarized… Read more »
Right on bro .. I totally get what you’re saying. And one thing I did not give mention to, is what we are doing globally. There is a lot of truth out there, a lot of it involves what we are doing with the planet’s environment. As I have stated,… Read more »
With all due respect, I put much greater faith in the opinions of the vast majority of experts in the field of climate science than I do in the opinion of a guy on the internet named Big Al. And if you really want to look at those with an… Read more »
Charles O. Jones – I think Big Al means well, and sincerely believes he is making a contribution to society. But judging from his postings (sounding remarkably like Limbaugh, Beck, et. al ) he has gone down that lonely road a lot of boomers have sadly gone down and gets… Read more »
Yeah Dr. Facts .. keep the us vs. then message coming brother you do better that Limbaugh can ever imagine. You tow are cut from the same mold, and neither of you realize it. I just wonder where you get that us vs. them message in my posts? Good job… Read more »
Well Charles, yeah .. you might do that, but in my opinion, I wouldn’t put much stock in those who lie about the climate change, for either side. You are pointing a direction at a good target in referring to the big corporations. Of course they have a big agenda… Read more »
You can play all the word games you want. Humans — not hominids — have been on Earth about 200,000 years. There are CO2 studies going back much further — if you bother to do the research. So yes, highest levels in human history. And yes, CO2 levels have been… Read more »
Again .. do all of the research … not just want you want to show everyone and make them believe.
In 1994 Rush Limbaugh declared, “There is no global warming going on,” adding that scientists “admit” they “may need 20 years more data to prove it.” Since then, Limbaugh has managed to shield his brain from 18 years of mounting evidence that humans are changing the climate. “Science has made… Read more »
Everybody loves charts and graphs. Here’s some even simple people can understand.
But…..who are we going to believe ?……Scientists with data and facts…..or Rush Limbaugh?…….After all,he is “the face” of the Republican party….and we ALL know they are never wrong about anything !!!
A thrice divorced, morbidly obese drug addicted radio dj with nothing more than a high school education is the voice of an American political party. Can the party sink any lower than that?
“Our book is Genesis. Their book is Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, the original environmental hoax”
Popular Conservative guru and spokesperson, Ann Coulter.
400 ppm is low by geologic historical standards. Earth has had 3000 ppm or more.
the article about gases is RECORDED history..not human history

Ken….NO WAY…The scientists doing this report are wrong….know how I know ?….Sarah Palin,Glen Beck ,Rush Limbaugh and FOX NEWS says it’s wrong !!!
Wayne Deja – There is clearly a weird movement going on in America today. To some, its become “patriotic” to stick one’s head deeply in the sand and resist any change whatsoever. Psychologists have been studying this far-right mindset for years and it is wise to confront this backward mentality… Read more »
Amen to all of that! We are all a dangerous to our culture and society if we continue to not feel the urgency to take action TODAY! But again people will always fear social change due to anxiety of self preservation. Humans are having a effect on our MotherEarth! Only… Read more »
