In response to MattyScornD's comment:
Nothing like changing the subject when one runs out of ideas.
At least the gopers in the OP are being honest with themselves and not following their party's great lurch backwards.
And as with so many other issues like gay marriage, the party is several steps behind the trend (when they're not standing in the way).
How weak are their arguments?
skeeter: "Blame the Sun."
Yeah, that weak....
Weak? Have you seen how big the Sun is?
your argument centers on the premise that you are the significant player In the temperature of the atmosphere, and that is simply shoddy science, and apparently to you, a religion.
Except that the science shows quite clearly that the sun is trending cooler, not hotter, thereby eviscerating your (still weak) argument.
The issue is how much of the sun's radiation is being trapped in the atmosphere by the greenhouse effect...
...i.e., the effect we are causing via pollution and other behaviors.
