Professors tell students: Drop class if you dispute man-made climate change

‘We will not, at any time, debate the science of climate change’

Three professors co-teaching an online course called “Medical Humanities in the Digital Age” at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs recently told their students via email that man-made climate change is not open for debate, and those who think otherwise have no place in their course.

“The point of departure for this course is based on the scientific premise that human induced climate change is valid and occurring. We will not, at any time, debate the science of climate change, nor will the ‘other side’ of the climate change debate be taught or discussed in this course,” states the email, a copy of which was provided to The College Fix by a student in the course.

Signed by the course’s professors Rebecca Laroche, Wendy Haggren and Eileen Skahill, it was sent after several students expressed concern for their success in the course after watching the first online lecture about the impacts of climate change.

“Opening up a debate that 98% of climate scientists unequivocally agree to be a non-debate would detract from the central concerns of environment and health addressed in this course,” the professors’ email continued.

    • jnora

      Sir, I thank you for your service. One question, though. I am of the belief that one cannot be a good Democrat and a good Christian. They are diametrically opposed to one another. As far as I am concerned, the Democrats support both abortion and idleness and encourage people to have babies out of wedlock to get more welfare and to get on welfare instead of working. Those are both against God’s commandments. You may want to reconsider either your party affiliation or your religious affiliation. People will look at you and think you believe in the Democratic platform. That, to me, is reflecting badly on God. Just my opinion. I mean this with kindness…not with offense.

      • Papa Bear

        Good points jnora, you are exactly correct in that the current Democratic platform does not reflect the values of the Democrats of old. The last Democrat that openly spoke of self reliance and taking responsibility for yourself was JFK. 🙂

        • jnora

          I see you are still out there protecting me, Papa Bear. Glad to know that. Yep, you don’t see many saying, “what can I do for my country” these days, do you?

          • Papa Bear

            Sure you do, just not many Democrats and certainly not the ones that are building the Welfare State in this Country 🙂 lol

  • Lorraine E

    Learn the truth about climate creation and control on the geoengineeringwatch.org web site. Read “Chemtrails Exposed: A New Manhattan Project” by Peter A. Kirby and read Elana Freeland’s book “Chemtrails, HAARP, and the full spectrum dominance of planet Earth.”
    Weather creation and control was developed in the 1950’s, it was used during the Viet Nam war during the l960’s and currently 15 governments are creating and controlling weather world wide.
    The lie that we, the people, are causing global warming/weather change is merely an excuse to further control and tax us.

  • Leftshot

    First, is their position so weak that they can’t answer the questions of a few 18-22 year olds?
    Second, their main defense is a factual lie. The 98% number isn’t based on the beliefs of climate scientists as claimed. It’s based on a subset of papers written on the topic of climate change–and eve then it wasn’t an honest assessment of those papers.

    • jnora

      They are like Hillary…they will say anything that suits their purpose.

  • Byron Claghorn

    First, the 98% of agreement is a completely phony fabrication since it was produced by an amateurish program that it used a keyword search of only abstracts of papers on the subject — Hence, Dr. Roy Spencer a known and highly published skeptic and most of his skeptical colleagues found there names included in the, then 97%, in his highly competent testimony to a Senate Committee — He blew away all of the Man-Made Scientists and phony climate modelers in the meeting. He is the award winning NASA Scientist behind our extremely accurate Satellite Global Temperature Program. He and his fellow accomplished know that the top of our Troposphere is not and has not warmed globally and has the facts to prove it. Furthermore, CO2 is scientifically a trace gas at only 400 ppm 380 ppm produced Naturally and only 20 ppm by Man & all fossil fuels/industrial processes. The Sun in this Modern Solar Maximum (1850 – Present) has caused the warming and most of the increased atmospheric CO2 and we are now transitioning into our next Modern Solar Minimum (of very cold
    temperatures) for at least 30 years or more especially in the Northern Hemisphere.

    These professors are too unscientific and probably incompetent in the science of our planet and our solar system — Like the rest of the Global Warming Alarmists — Just suppress all scientific facts including actual proof that the Premise for Man-Made Global Warming is False. Watch this video where Dr. Spencer and real highly qualified climate scientists provide you with the proof and real facts, not insecure political correctness. These guys are the real deal, not phony science profs with no actual facts on the subject that are afraid of their students — They need to stop the GWA propaganda!

        Obviously, these profs are atheists.Only God can change the weather. We can prevent smog somewhat, but I think it is blasphemous to think we can change the weather. How dare they!

        • Elaine

          Absolutely right, jnora. It’s the height of arrogance to think we mere mortals are that powerful. And, I’m in agreement that these profs are atheists. They’d almost have to be to believe the way they do. How can anyone think that this universe just “happened”? This video puts things into perspective. (The comment that is deleted was mine. Somehow I posted the wrong video. Oops.)

            Elaine, I am a staunch woman of God and I am a bit embarrassed to ask this, but all my life I have wondered where the caveman fit into this scenario or if they even existed. I honestly don’t know the answer to that. I do not believe in evolution although I do believe that people evolve somewhat like people are taller now, but I think that is the effect of hormones in our food. Caveman…? Just because they’ve found drawings…I don’t know. Granted they have found some bones, but perhaps they were animals instead of mankind. That is what I tend to believe. It really doesn’t matter in the scheme of things, though. What are your thoughts on that?

          • Elaine

            I do believe that God’s creatures “evolve” within their own species, but IMHO the theories that mankind evolved from apes or even reptiles are patently absurd and flawed. That would require a change in the structure of our DNA, and that doesn’t happen. At least, not that I’m aware of. (Interestingly, cockroaches are the only creature whose fossils from millions of years ago are identical to their structure today! Evidently, they have no reason to “evolve”!) I’ve also wondered if Adam and Eve came before the “cavemen”, or if they themselves were “cavemen”. There is a lot I am curious about, but never took the time to research or even give much thought. But, out of curiosity, I just now found an interesting slideshow that you might find interesting as well. If nothing else, it’s something to think about!

          • jnora

            Excuse me being out of the loop, but I am older. What is IMHO? I have often wondered about Adam and Eve. I tend to thing that the Cavemen may have been an animal. Then again…who drew the drawings in the cave? People would not have lived in caves until after they were thrown out of the Garden of Eden. I surely remember their sin when having my babies before epidurals, too…LOL.I brought it up at church one time and about had my head snapped off. Oh well. There certainly is some explanation and it really doesn’t matter if we know now. Someday all things will be clear to us and if we don’t know then, it won’t be necessary for us to know…we will be eternally happy. That is good because I have very little happiness here on earth with my son having committed suicide and my other son being mentally ill as well and not speaking to me…not even at the service. Wouldn’t even sit with me and he is my only other child. Don’t even know what I did to deserve this. Their dad was a sociopath (didn’t know until after we had kids) and those genetics went right down to both boys. God has given me the strength to cope, but for a while, I thought I’d die of sadness. I was just catatonic for awhile. My family (supposedly Christian) is estranged due to my father’s Will, so I went through it alone except for my Lord and my church family. Would not have made it without them. The church had been paying for me a Christian counselor for 4 years…far before he died. The both treat/treated me so badly that it has caused me so much pain and my counselor has been sent from God. He knows more about me than anyone on earth has EVER known about me. I keep nothing from him. I would never leave that church and this town. I love the town, but I more so love the church and my counselor. God sends me signs occasionally. Sometimes, when it would get more than I could bear, I could actually feel God easing the pain. It was the weirdest feeling, but I know it was God. He has put things and people in my path to help me along. I praise Him, especially for always being with me. After all, our lives are but a blip on the radar in the scheme of things. That video you sent certainly showed that to be true.

          • Elaine

            You are an incredibly strong woman of deep faith, and it would certainly seem that your faith has been tested to its limit. But, God is with you, through everything you have endured. In the end, faith is all we have. God bless and be with you always.
            On another note, I discovered that with all the abbreviations used today for texting, etc. … that there is actually an online “dictionary” for computer and text message “slang”. I, too, had no clue what so many of these abbreviations meant! So, I had to look up “IMHO” … and learned that it means “In my humble opinion”. Once I got the hang of it, I started to be able to figure out some of this shorthand without looking it up! I’m older myself, so I know where you are coming from on this!
            You take care, jnora. I will say a prayer that your days become easier and your load lighter. Bless you.

          • jnora

            What nice words of encouragement! Thank you so much. It is a nice change from AD Robert’s rude and heartless comments to me. They used to bother me, but now they just roll off my back. Yesterday was my very last post to him. He mentioned that he admired Allen West. That is the ONLY good thing I have ever heard him say except that he almost seems to worship Ted Cruz. He thinks he is the only Christian in the world that does it properly. I wrote back, against my better judgment, that when my son was in the Army, he knew Allen West and also General Odierno that was in command of Ft. Hood at the time. His answer was BOGUS in all caps. Why would I lie about that? I am NOT a liar. I also said that my son had a very secret job and a high security clearance, and he does. He didn’t believe and asked me to tell him about the “secret job.” Well, if it weren’t secret I could tell him, but my son is so closed mouth about it, even to his family (unlike Hillary Clinton). All he’ll say is that he does good things for people that do good things. He was almost a near perfect soldier and is a great employee and has become quite wealthy in the process. Click on AD’s name and look at his comments to people. He keeps calling people Laodiceans. He thinks everyone is either evil or lukewarm. I resented that for a long time, but I was telling my counselor on Wednesday that I know I am not a lukewarm Christian and him, being a Christian AGAPE counselor, wholeheartedly agreed. I wonder what people like AD must have wrong with them to be so bitter. He must be very unhappy. My counselor has read some of his posts and he was incredulous. He would probably be a challenge to a counselor, even one as good as mine. He said he is going to block me…hope so. I try to warn people about him and I don’t consider that gossip. He does. If he didn’t act so deplorably, people wouldn’t need to be warned. He really doesn’t deserve all this post space, but I wanted him to know that I have conquered him big time!

            I just had the last session of some group therapy on coping skills. It really helped me. I am actually happy now from my counselor’s great counseling and now this. I found out that one of the mindfulness exercises they did was life-changing for me. The woman told us to think of a conveyor belt. I told her that all I can think of when I think of a conveyor belt was Lucy and Ethel at the candy factory and that my thoughts would race. All of us women were older and everyone laughed and agreed. However, when I closed my eyes and relaxed my body, everything slowed down and the conveyor was coming toward me with my son’s urn on it. I have had guilt about not touching or kissing the urn. I took off the lid and sent it on its way. Then I picked up the urn and threw up the ashes and God took them up to heaven. I turned it over to God. Then, I let the urn go on to God on the belt. Then came my other son that will not talk to me. I picked him up off the belt and held him tightly and loved him so much. Then came my parents, my granddaughter, and even my estranged family…all of which I took off. I do want to reunite with them…they will not give, though. With thoughts of hope, I took them off. All the bad things and thoughts, I left on the belt. I have trouble giving my problems giving my problems and worries to God and this has REALLY helped me a lot. My counselor was ecstatic.

            I know one thing I am going to have to turn over to God on that belt. Today in a Hobby Lobby parking lot, I opened my door and a huge wind just took my door away from me. It hit a Cadillac SUV really hard and put a dent in it and went down to the metal with my paint on their car. I went into the store and had them page the people to find them and, even as broke as I was, I offered to pay for it. They accompanied me to a great body shop in town and we had a quote of $350. It took nearly all my “Dave Ramsey” envelope stuff, but I knew that it would do me no good in eternity, but what I did after it happened would do me much more good. The people were absolutely amazed. I am not bragging at all, but it WAS a hardship to me. However, I feel much closer to God because I know that I did what He wanted me to do. He will make it up to me in some other way. Too wordy, so I will quit. At least the IMHO was not something with cursing in it like so many of them are. You are a keeper, Elaine…I wish you were one of my friends in person!.

          • Elaine

            jnora, it sounds as if you are doing a tremendous job of coping with the things that have plagued you in the past, and even recently. Your counselor sounds like a fantastic human being, and I’m glad you have someone in your life who can help you, and that you can trust. Your faith in God is your strength, and your counselor helps you keep your feet on the ground. Everything that goes around, will come around. Take care, my friend, and God bless. I’ll be seeing you around these comment boards, for sure.

          • jnora

            I don’t know if I told you what happened to me yesterday or not. I’ll tell you again if I did. My memory is so bad and getting worse. I was at Hobby Lobby getting out of my car (carefully, as always because I don’t like people hitting my car) and I had my hand on the door handle inside and a huge gust of wind just took it right out of my hand and it flew into the Cadillac SUV next to me. I was horrified. It put a little dent into it and my car’s paint was on it. Yes, I could have driven away, but I didn’t. I went inside and had them paged. A couple about my age came out and they thought I had hit their car. I told them what had happened and they were amazed that I even told them about it. I told them I didn’t want to put it on my insurance due to raising my rates, but I would pay for it. She said she was going to the dealer the next week. I knew that would be very expensive, so I suggested someone that I knew was excellent because I had used him before. So, they followed me to food ole’ Mr. Pogue. It is costing me $350. They then followed me to my house and I cleaned out my “Dave Ramsey envelopes.” I have to take everything I had that I was saving up for insurance, etc. I knew that money wouldn’t do me any good in heaven, but the deed would. They were incredulous. When they left, the man looked at me and said, “we surely do think a lot of you for doing this.” Then, it was all worth it. I looked upward and asked God if I pleased him. Nothing I wanted to do more. I will struggle to make up that $350, but I KNOW God will give it back to me in some way. Maybe our garage sale next weekend will be very successful and I will sell tons of my flower arrangements, artwork, sewing, etc. Even if I see nothing now, I know that He will bless me in the end. Our God is great!

          • Elaine

            I hope your garage sale is a huge success! I would more than likely buy some artwork if I were there. Good luck!

        Elaine, More people need to become informed of the actual science behind Climate Change and it has little to do with Man! The Guys in the Video are real and honest scientists like the over 31,000 qualified scientists that have legally certified that they believe that the Global Warming and Man-Made Climate Change is pure political propaganda and spin and does not qualify as a theory since it has never been proven scientifically — The GWA only have invalid models based of false CO2 assumptions and gross exaggerations!

        Man’s Use of Fossil Fuels & CO2 – Proven to Have No Significant Effect on Climate Change! 95% of All GHGs are Water Vapor (H2O) at 9,500 ppm = 2.85 Ft. 1YARDAnalogy Source: “ClimateGate”, by Brian Sussman, pg. 68 –Reference to this GHGanalogy in “State of Fear” by Michael Crichton, pg. 387.

        By Byron Claghorn Aug 11, 2016

        To understand just how relatively miniscule the contribution of atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) by Man’s use of Fossil Fuels and Industrial Processes is actually when compared with the rest of our Earth’s atmosphere, I have created the following illustration based on an idea created by Michael Crichton. This analogy provides a comparison of the percentage concentrations of major gases in the Earth’s Atmosphere (i.e., our Troposphere) to the length of a 100-yard Football Field to give you a clear comparison, shown below.

        As you can see from the above illustration that Man-Made CO2 concentration is an Extremely Trace Concentration at 2-one-thousands of a percent (i.e., 0.002%) which is represented by the Width of a Thin Dime that is proportional to only a 1/16th of an Inch line (0.0625″) in front of the goal post on a 100-yard football field!

        Man produces an insignificantly small quantity of CO2 (0.002%, or 20 ppm) compared to the naturally-produced Greenhouse Gases, Water Vapor (H2O, 0.95%) and Natural-CO2 (0.038%) which are primarily produced by evaporation from the seas and the remaining major gases: Nitrogen (77%), Oxygen (21%) and Argon (1%) as well as the remaining minor Greenhouse Gases (0.01%) such as Methane (CH4), Nitrous Oxide (NO2) and Ozone (O3):

        Totaling: 100% of the Earth’s Atmosphere = 100 Yard Analogy – 99.9% Caused Naturally!

        Moreover, factual scientific analysis of 800,000 year-old ice cores has proven that:

        1. Atmospheric CO2 Does Not Cause Significant Warming due to the Greenhouse Effect – This is the Opposite of what Al Gore believed, causing CO2 to be falsely blamed by the Global Warming Alarmists (GWA) as the cause for a fabricated Man-Made Climate Warming Crisis in this 21st century. The GWA claim that when the CO2 level increases to a mere 600 parts-per-million (ppm) a global-warming disaster will be upon the World.

        2. Temperature Increases are actually produced by Increased Solar-Energy Output causing Evaporation of both CO2 and Water Vapor (H2O) into the atmosphere – Gradually increasing CO2 & Water Vapor Concentrations, until Solar-Energy cycles cause cooler temperatures which allows the CO2 gas to return and be absorbed in the seas, where it originated providing a natural balance – Man’s minor CO2 net contributions are well within the bounds of natural variability.

        3. Historically, the current total CO2-Concentration of 400 ppm (parts-per-million) is Quite Low with respect to CO2-Concentrations during the very cold Ice Age which were over 4000+ ppm – Ten-Times the current level!

        4. Likewise, High & Low CO2-concentrations were found during both very Warm & very Cold periods in the past – Establishing that Carbon Dioxide concentration levels are Irrelevant to Climate Change. Our Sun and Natural Solar Cycles with Earth’s Orbit & Tilt are the main drivers of temperature and long-term Climate Change.

        5. While the Global Warming Alarmists (GWA) demonize CO2 as a Pollutant and as a Molecule that must be eliminated and sequestered, the GWA have posed an irrational argument, since:

        a. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is essential to all life on earth since all plant life combines it with light and water to nourish themselves with Glucose (C6H12O6) and emit the Oxygen that all animal-life on Earth, including Humans, must breath. You and I exhale about 4% CO2 with every breath.

        b. CO2 Concentrations up to around 10,000 ppm are safe (25-times the current CO2 concentration) for humans to live and work. OSHA Standards for CO2 limits at 5,000 ppm are a bit more conservative, recommending that CO2-concentrations not exceed this level for an 8-hour work day (12.5-times the current CO2 concentration).

        c. Such High-Levels of CO2-concentrations can occur naturally, but are often artificially created for agricultural applications to increase crop quality and yields, in submarines, space capsules and other special environments.

        Now that it has been scientifically proven that CO2 as well as the Element Carbon (C) is not our enemy and does not require sequestration, there is no need to curtail the use of fossil fuels as long as Air Quality standards are enacted and maintained to prevent unwarranted Air Pollution.

         In the USA we have made much progress with regard to automobile and industrial Air Quality Controls already. Controls that no longer need to be concerned with CO2 emissions since high or low levels of Carbon Dioxide do not cause warming and climate change; plus, higher CO2-levels are good for Plants and, in turn, Animals and humans that require Oxygen (O2) to breathe.

         Carbon is the most-flexible element that recombines to form a vast number of useful compounds with nearly 10-Million compounds described to-date which is still a fraction of the possible future compounds including: Diamonds, Graphite Pencils, lightweight Composite Materials for aircraft and other vehicles, Nanotubes, Buckeyballs, Lubricants and even the Graphene in Tennis Racquets.

         The element Carbon (C) is the 4th most-common element in the universe and the 15th most-common element in our Earth’s crust; plus, the element Carbon is also essential to life on Earth.

        To get the straight story on this subject from honest and accomplished climate scientists that are formerly with NASA and respected professors from major universities that have actually analyzed the many Ice Core Samples, developed the global temperature satellite measuring systems, conducted polar ice and other research.

        Once you have seen this video, you now have the necessary facts to counter the liberal Political Correctness attacks calling you a “Skeptic” or “Denier” when they have no proof, only invalid climate models based on a false Premise that Man-Made CO2 is a huge quantity and it causes unlimited warming. The Naturally Balanced Climate of our very Large World & its Vast Oceans partner with our Sun which is a Million times the volume of our Earth keeping us in orbit and it controls our climate!

        There is NO CLIMATE CRISIS and Man has no way to Control our Sun and our Climate – Don’t waste any taxpayer money on it, simply adapt as we have ably done before – Not to Global Warming, but to the Global Cooling ahead.

          Much valuable information there, Byron. Profuse thanks. I particularly noticed your references to Michael Crichton. Back in March of 2007, Rush Limbaugh played an audio of a very inspiring Charlton Heston reading. (Anything read by Charlton Heston pretty much takes my breath away!) Since then, I have come to learn so much more about Crichton’s viewpoints on Global Warming. Here is the transcript from Rush’s program ….

          “RUSH: Yeah. Your call has been on the board for a while. We had a chance to find it. What it actually is, I think, is a forward or an intro in an early chapter in a Michael Crichton book. I think it’s from Jurassic
          Park. Charlton Heston called here one day and asked to read it on the air — and, you know, when Moses calls you and is really passionate
          about something and wants to read the tablets to you, you get out of the way and do it.

          CALLER: That’s right.

          RUSH: We have it. We’ve kept it. It’s in our archives. Thanks, Dan, for the call and the reminder about that. We have so many things in our archives, it’s impossible for all of us to remember everything that’s there, but this really is powerful, and it goes great today with all of this hysteria on global warming and destroying the planet. Here is Charlton Heston from the opening chapters of Jurassic Park as written by Michael Crichton.

          HESTON: You think man can destroy the planet? What intoxicating vanity! Let me tell you about our planet. Earth is four-and-a-half-billion-years-old.
          There’s been life on it for nearly that long, 3.8 billion years. Bacteria first; later the first multicellular life, then the first complex creatures in the sea, on the land. Then finally the great sweeping ages of animals, the amphibians, the dinosaurs, at last the
          mammals, each one enduring millions on millions of years, great dynasties of creatures rising, flourishing, dying away — all this against a background of continuous and violent upheaval. Mountain ranges thrust up, eroded away, cometary impacts, volcano eruptions, oceans rising and falling, whole continents moving, an endless, constant, violent change, colliding, buckling to make mountains over millions of years.

          Earth has survived everything in its time. It will certainly survive us. If all the nuclear weapons in the world went off at once and all the plants, all the animals died and the earth was sizzling hot for a hundred thousand years, life would survive, somewhere: under the soil, frozen in arctic ice. Sooner or later, when the planet was no longer inhospitable, life would spread again. The
          evolutionary process would begin again. Might take a few billion years for life to regain its present variety. Of course, it would be very different from what it is now, but the earth would survive our folly,
          only we would not. If the ozone layer gets thinner, ultraviolet radiation sears earth, so what? Ultraviolet radiation is good for life. It’s powerful energy. It promotes mutation, change. Many forms of life
          will thrive with more UV radiation. Many others will die out. You think this is the first time that’s happened? Think about oxygen. Necessary
          for life now, but oxygen is actually a metabolic poison, a corrosive glass, like fluorine.

          When oxygen was first produced as a waste product by certain plant cells some three billion years ago, it created a crisis for all other life on earth. Those plants were polluting the environment, exhaling a lethal gas. Earth eventually had an atmosphere incompatible with life. Nevertheless, life on earth took care of itself. In the thinking of the human being a hundred years is a long time. Hundred years ago we didn’t have cars, airplanes, computers or vaccines. It was a whole different world, but to the earth, a hundred years is nothing. A million years is
          nothing. This planet lives and breathes on a much vaster scale. We can’t imagine its slow and powerful rhythms, and we haven’t got the humility to try. We’ve been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we’re gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us.”

            Elaine,
            Thanks for the input on Michael Crichton & Charlton Heston’s reading!
            Sorry about my previous reply which lost the excellent Football Field Analogy to our atmospheric content which would not input with the blog text. However, my article is probably still out on the Constitution.com website from a month or so ago. Net-Net the total contribution of Man’s use of Fossil Fuels and our world-wide industrial processes only equates to a line the width of a thin dime ~1/16th of an inch — in front of the goal post.
            I hope you enjoyed the video! Part 5 shows how progressives, well-intentioned but misguided Environmentalist and the GWA are suppressing the economy and quality of life in the world’s underdeveloped countries. Another dimension and consequence of the Man-Made Climate Change / Global Warming Hoax that is really serious.

          • Elaine

            Actually, the text was descriptive enough without the visual of the football field. But, I will look through the website for the article. I started paging through, and there are hundreds of articles! I got a little sidetracked and started reading other articles … there is so much information there! Thanks for the link and all the other information you have posted. It’s a great site to go to for some valuable reading material.

          I don’t get it, they keep blaming Co2 gases on humans, what’s their solution? The only logical solution is to cull the population by their way of thinking. They keep making hints, I seen one climate nut telling young people not to have kids, was the best way to protect their kids they don’t have. I wonder if I’m crazy or these idiots have all lost their minds. Even if humans were causing so much Co2 and destroying the planet would they even try to come up with a solution that don’t involve wiping out two thirds of the world population? I am old and not worried about me, I do worry about my grandkids and any kids since these alarmists seem to think humans are the cause. I have seen to many hints, the only way to fix it is to get rid of many humans. It’s a scary thing when they can convince so many this is happening and the world would be better off without so many of us. It seems to me Hitler blamed all of Germany’s problems on Jewish people And the west. How did that turn out?

          • Byron Claghorn

            Actually, the real solution to the Man-Made Climate Change / CO2 Global Warming Crisis is to simply stop electing Politicians espousing Progressive and Globalism Policies and Phony Global Warming Propaganda! Simply, Don’t vote for them!

            There is no significant Global Warming and CO2 is really NOT a Pollutant or even a real Problem it is simply a progressive ploy to control energy & people while redistributing the money from the USA and other wealthy nations to the UN and their own pockets on the pretext of helping the underdeveloped nations.

            I’m sorry I get it, I was being funny or trying to be. It’s propaganda plain and simple and my biggest concern is the democrats putting in their platform to prosecute companies that deny global warming. To me it’s an attack on free speech and debate period. Their either getting braver or more desperate to keep this false claim going. If I was a conspiracy theorist I would say it’s to get the NWO finished up, to control more of the population and get richer. I do know to many things seem to be falling into place for everything to be just a conspiracy. It’s a scary time we live in.

  • justinwachin

    These three women aren’t scientists. They may be ministers in the church of global warming but they have embraced a belief rather than true science.

    Any time someone wants to limit debate on a scientific theory it is safe to conclude they doubt the ability of their theory to withstand debate or testing. In other words, they know that global warming is probably a fraud.

    They are right. Global warming is a hoax that is designed to take people’s freedom and wealth. There is no demonstrable connection between the change in earth temperature and change in carbon dioxide level. As I have pointed out in previous posts it is likely their efforts to clear the air will lead to higher temperatures rather than lower ones. That hypothesis will never be tested or considered because it is seen as heresy by those who have bowed their knee to the god of global warming.

    Obviously these brilliant professors are not scientists. Perhaps they should expose themselves to a more diverse collection of articles and scientific studies concerning climate change. At the very least, even the scientific community is split on what it believes is the cause of climate change.

    if man is causing the problem then the only fix is mass execution . step right up and do your duty

  • CMSgt, USAF, Retired

    As lemmings/sheep we follow over the cliffs edge, no questions asked just blind obedience. Maybe the debate should be about how such assholes are allowed to have teaching credentials except for below the day care level (this means unemployment) now and into the future. If all students dropped their class do you think the university might think they were excess baggage, no longer needed as they had no students to brain wash? Nah, wishful thinking. Loretta Lynch would probably find some way to bring the students up on charges of subversion and being a threat to the government. A trade school teaching the electrical and/or plumbing trades would probably gain the students more productive and monetarily rewarding employment.

    • Elaine

      The six-letter word that runs chills up my spine when I think about these cockeyed professors teaching their bullshit: TENURE.

      • jnora

        Gee Whiz…I wrote that about tenure before even seeing your comment, so it must bother you as much as it bothers me. It is really a sill system, isn’t it. It rewards bad teaching. No wonder the millennials are so ignorant.

        • Elaine

          Same here, jnora. I guess our comments must have “crossed in the mail”, because yours wasn’t there yet when I posted mine. I guess great minds do think alike!

    Even if the 98% weren’t a lie started by a self-employed cartoonist from Australia named John Cook, with no credentials in climatology, science is not a game of what gets the most votes. The chicks teaching this propaganda class are not “professors”. They are leftist “useful” idiots.

            My granddaughter tested to get into the #1 PUBLIC school in the U.S. It is called the Thomas Jefferson High School of Science and Technology in Alexandria, VA. They tested 2800, took 400 and she made it. She is brilliant as are both of her parents. My son is a genius and her mother (Chinese) is extremely intelligent, also. They have NEVER once pushed her. She pushes herself. Anyway, the testing (tests and essays) were TOTALLY race-unbiased if you can believe that with a public school. Turns out if it 70% ASIAN. They are eating our lunch! When I saw this virtual walk-through of their school renovation and seeing the names of the rooms and the openness of it, it looks like a school in which she can spread her wings and her mind and be anything she wants to be. Check it out at:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAeiek3b3lc

            I was in construction all of my career, but architects have come a long way. Look at the names of the classrooms. I think she is destined for something great (at least a great scholarship!). We are so proud of her. I hope all her hard work is not in vain if Hillary is elected. She then will be just like everyone else under socialism. Both her Chinese grandparents were physicians in China. Her grandmother was head of Pathology at Beijing Hospital and her grandfather was a neurosurgeon. Both are retired now and my son has to help both of them…they are near destitute because of Communism. Why on earth would anyone except the Hillarys at the the top want that form of government. It sickens me to think of the world my dear grandkids may have to endure (and everyone else) if Hillary is elected. I don’t worry much about myself because I am coasting at the end of my life, but I do worry about my descendants. I pray to God every day for our country and that it can be, at least, turned around to the right direction. Sorry for the long post, everyone. But I am very passionate about the country that I know can be better because I grew up in one that was wonderful…the U.S.A. as it used to be.

      The last thing these agenda driven idiots want is there beliefs to be questioned. It is not that difficult to show that man made climate change is a lie it just takes a little bit of research and a lot of space to present it. “Teachers” like these are a total embarrassment to the field of education. When I was in school back in the 50’s and early 60’s educations was an honorable profession and the total objective was to teach truth, debate both sides of issues and teach the students to think for themselves. I don’t remember a single teacher pushing an agenda.

      • jnora

        Yeah, we learned to write cursive, learned correct English and history, learned civics and there wasn’t a whole lot of difference between Republicans and Democrats, so no one was so angry like they are today. I remember an idyllic childhood. Wish my grandchildren could have what I had. Were it not for the way the blacks were treated and the Korean War, the 1950’s were about as good as it gets. You don’t miss things you never had…sort of like salt. We played outside to get exercise, were not taught radical views and most loved their country. It is when I was a teenager and the hippies came in and became academia that the problems started! Crazies!

          I totally agree, that is why I am such a strong proponent of home schooling.
