Guy Who Refers To Internet In Numbers Says Denying Hotcoldwetdry Like Denying Gravity

Remember this?

During an interview on CBS’ “Early Show” on Wednesday, Biden told viewers to check out a government-run Web site tracking stimulus spending, but admitted he was embarrassed because he couldn’t remember the site’s “number.”

“You know, I’m embarrassed. Do you know the Web site number?” he asked an aide standing out of view. “I should have it in front of me and I don’t. I’m actually embarrassed.”

Biden, who seemed to indicate that he thought the Internet worked like a giant telephone, sounded an unusually Luddite note inside an administration often heralded for its mastery of the Web.

Yeah, that’s the guy you should listen to on “climate change”

(HuffPost) Vice President Joe Biden took a strong stance against climate change deniers in an interview with VICE founder Shane Smith.

The interview is part of VICE’s documentary series, which airs on HBO and is premiering its third season on Friday. The first episode, titled “Our Rising Oceans,” will focus on sea level rise.

“It gets to the point where you can’t look anyone in the eye seriously and say, well, it’s nothing having to do with manmade,” he said.

Reacting to members of Congress who deny climate change is real, Biden said, “It’s almost like denying gravity now… the willing suspension of disbelief can only be sustained for so long.”

This from a guy who takes fossil fueled flights all around the country and world, and who’s boss has the largest carbon footprint in the world.

Let’s be clear: climate change is real. The debate is on causation. But, hey, if Joe is so concerned, then why does he want all this road construction to occur, which allows fossil fueled vehicles to travel the country?

    Biden couldn’t take a strong stance against a urinal.

    It also shouldn’t surprise me that he gets it completely wrong as well. Very few, if any, deny that the climate is/does change. It’s causation that we disagree with him about.

    So you admit that the Earth is warming? That’s a start. Some of your commenters still debate whether it’s warming at all.

    The debate over the cause is only in the heads of Deniers.

    J-“The debate over the cause is only in the heads of deniers.” No, the debate is in the heads of those wanting to look at all the un-altered data. “So you admit the world is warming?” He did no such thing. From where in “climate change is real” do you get “the world is warming”? That would only happen in your head.

    The debate over the cause is only in the heads of child abusers and thieves … honest and intelligent people know its a fraud

  5. Casey says:

    No, moron, we understand that climate changes naturally and periodically. It’s the “human caused” and “catastrophic” parts we have issue with.

    I can understand why jeffy likes Biden; it’s one of the few times he’s not the dumbest schlep in the room…

    Which reminds me, Teach. Dunno if you’ve heard about this yet from The Carbon Sense Coalition:
    The Global Warming Scare is Based on an Error in Feedback Assumptions. It seems James Hansen & company decided to use a formula used to measure feedback in electronic circuits to model CO2 feedback in the atmosphere.

    So much for “settled science.”

  6. Jeffery says:

    Cassie the Moron,

    Changes in the Earth’s temperature of the magnitude we are seeing now can only happen by changes in physical processes – unless one believes in magic. What is causing the Earth to warm now?

    LOL. You’re cited the disgraced Willie Soon and the disgraceful liar Christopher Monckton (and two lesser idiot Deniers) published in an obscure Chinese journal.

    It’s understandable that the unsophisticated would be taken in by the accomplished charlatan, Monckton, especially since you desire so much to be fooled.

    In your simple but fevered mind, what is the probability that human-generated CO2 is causing the Earth to warm? 0 = no chance. 1 = absolute certainty.

  7. Casey says:

    Wow that really stung.

    Ad hominem against the authors is all you got. You can’t even hand-wave away the fact that the equation in question doesn’t work for climate feedback. Of course, if you knew anything about real science, instead of CAGW religious beliefs you would understand.

    Poopy-head.

  8. Jeffery says:

    Cassandra,

    We must always also consider the source of the tripe, agreed?

    The Dear Lord, the Viscount Sir Christopher Monckton of Brenchley Superstar, or whatever he’s claiming this week, is a consistent and flamboyant liar. Willie Soon is a soon to be fired shill for the tobacco fossil fuels industry.

    This is just more of the Denier war on reason.
