Rising Global Stupidity

ABC News has taken the "global warming" to a whole new level of stupidity.
Witnessing the impact of global warming in your life?

ABC News wants to hear from you. We're currently producing a report on the increasing changes in our physical environment, and are looking for interesting examples of people coping with the differences in their daily lives. Has your life been directly affected by global warming?

We want to hear and see your stories. Have you noticed changes in your own backyard or hometown? The differences can be large or small — altered blooming schedules, unusual animals that have arrived in your community, higher water levels encroaching on your property.

Isn't ABC News suppose to be the part of the intelligentsia and yet they're falling for junk science? I can't figure out if they really know that global warming doesn't exist, but it make good headlines, or they aren't as smart as they claim and have been duped by poor science.

Hey, ABC! A few days ago it was nice, temperatures in the low 80's. Now it's up in the 90's, and really uncomfortable. I have to water my plants because it's so dry. I think it's that global warming. What should I do!

Sheesh! What a bunch of twits!

Hi Valerie

the twit is you. Or rather the twad. Here in Holland Global Warming is treated as a real threat because it lets the sea level rise and might drown the Netherlands. Do you think they spend billions to upgrade their dams just for the fun of it?
Gosh I hater people who can't face the facts because they make them feel uncomfortable

Wow! I'm so honored to have uninformed liberal comment. However, I do know the facts. You see, I have a science degree from UC Berkeley. I know how to read and evaluate scientific papers. I get my facts from reputable scientists rather than some goober with a political agenda selling junk science.

A science degree? And what that means? Are you a professional meteorologist or what?

Or perhaps you are an expert on everything, don't you? Biology, Physics, Medicine, Meteorology, Geology... Each and every science.

"I know how to read and evaluate scientific papers", you said. Wow! What an achievement!

I have a PhD in Meteorology and I have read and evaluated hundreds of scientific papers showing evidences of a Global Climate Change. But, of course, you can continue denying evidence if you want.

What are the names of those "reputable scientists" you mentioned? ¿George and Laura Bush?

Jesus, can any of you speak proper English? And this whole argument is pathetic and uneccessary. Global warming isn't just a theory or an idea, it is a cold hard fact. There is overwhelming evidence to support it, and as a science wiz, you should know this to be true. I find it hard to believe that someone with a firm scientific background doesn't accept global warming as a fact. And nevertheless, you don't have a masters or a Phd, else you would have mentioned so. So I will continue to share my beliefs with the true professionals, you know, DOCTORS and such. And just because you went to UC Berkely doesn't mean that you performed well in school and it sure as hell has done nothing to prove your intelligence. Then again, you are a conservative, which explains a lot. I just want to say, global warming is a fact. It's there. Whether you choose to believe we humans have impacted the sudden growth of the issue or not, that is your choice, but global warming IS a real problem.

Holland is in danger of flooding not because of climate change....but because most of Holland is below sea level in the first place. It is "reclaimed marshland" and has been being constantly pumped out for quite a while now. You're dutch...you quote the facts on that.

"Man versus the Ocean" I think I know who will win in the end....
