Marsha Brooks, a 59-year-old nanny who lives in Washington, D.C., said she’s certain smoking causes cancer because she saw her mother, aunts and uncles, all smokers, die of cancer. But when it comes to the universe beginning with a Big Bang or the Earth being about 4.5 billion years old, she has doubts. She explained: “It could be a lack of knowledge. It seems so far” away.
So what does that chart tell you? It tells me where nowhere near warm, historically speaking of course, but it could get a lot warmer. It also tells me that anthropogenic global warming is mythical. The Earth warming is natural and cannot be stopped.

Maybe you need to research global temperatures over the last 10,000 years. Then get back to us.
Who's us? Anyway, here's one I drew earlier..no I didn't, I made it up.
Now go and get your own version..see how these things work?

Hmmm... I can't agree with the media here. They want to give the impression that Global Warming or Climate Change 'their way' is as settled as the 1st law of thermodynamics. Well... Saying so don't make it so and it isn't made by a country mile.
The rest sounds reasonable tho. ..Well.. Except for the age of Earth. No..I'm not one of those 6,000 year people. Silly..since we have man in habitation back at least 11,400 years. It's that Millions or Billions and how many of which one I kinda smile on the assumption we can get anywhere near right with current methods.
I guess we'll never get that Pics or it didn't happen on the Big Bang...but I'll take that wee detail on faith until or unless a better theory floats down the creek.

BS the poor to pay to breath!
They'll call it the "Carbon Tax;" the bigger the family, the bigger the tax. Good way to control the population numbers as well. ?

After all, the Big Band and our current understanding of evolution are hardly written in stone like, say, the laws of motion and gravity.

Most people who deny mainstream science, never studied it in the first place. That makes it all the easier to believe in controversial theories because you have nothing to measure them against. If you really think that science has been lying to you, you might consider learning enough about it in order to be able to argue against it. That would be rather scientific... don't you think?
