'In 1971, when you were roughly our age, you asked ‘How can you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?’' the letter states. 'We stand at such a point today, with respect to an even greater challenge, an even bigger mistake — the imminent threat of catastrophic climate disruption.' 'We dare to believe that it’s not just an accident of history that this recommendation falls to you.'
Singer: 'Kerry also raises the specter that AGW is worse than weapons of mass destruction (WMD). So how many millions has AGW killed so far? If truth be told, a slightly warmer climate (since about 1850) and more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have promoted more productive agriculture and may have saved many millions from starvation. Besides, the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) was warmer than today and permitted a higher standard of living. It was the Little Ice Age (LIA) that killed off millions by starvation and disease during 1400-1800.'
'Gore filled a Westin Crown Center ballroom with a 90-minute presentation, using photos and videos to illustrate a litany of floods, wildfires, torrential rains, droughts, dust storms, rising sea levels and increasing world temperatures.'
Statement by Climate Depot Publisher Marc Morano on new global warming/violence study: “Instead of looking at temperature data or other climate metrics to prove or disprove man-made global warming claims, the global warming activists have now shifted the playing field so rape and murder statistics are now used as some sort of ‘proof’ of man-made global warming. Global warming science has truly morphed to modern witchcraft!’
McCain: 'Why should he talk about climate change when we have got 130,000 people in Syria killed?' "John Kerry and the president, they could be hitting the trifecta here. Gross failure on all three. So he has to go over to Asia and talk about climate change and say it's the most important issue? Hello? On what planet does he reside?" he said Tuesday. McCain coauthored cap-and-trade bills in 2003, 2005, and 2007, but later moved away from focusing on climate and voted in favor of thwarting EPA's greenhouse gas regulations.
