Sh!t, even lefty atheist George Carlin didn't believe in the Global Warming Scam...

Just ignore the 'liberals in Volvos' comment.

If George Carlin is now our EXPERT...
then lets explore George's views:


Religion Is Bull$hit!


The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral
philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

Yes, he said that.  Global Warming worshipers are religious fanatics that expect everybody to live by their church doctrine.  They go so far to force the non believers to use a mercury filled light bulb.  They are zealots!

Bolded the part that you missed and/or ignored.

Carlin's political and his views on religion are well known.

You look foolish thinking you got something over on me by posting those two clips.

All of a sudden, Buck quoting George Carlin doesn't seem so cool.

Majority Believe Evidence of Global Warming

Quoted Text
A new USA Today poll reveals that approximately 71% of Americans “see evidence
of global warming and believe the Earth’s temperature will continue to rise if nothing is done.”
But they have conflicted views about government’s role in solving the problem.

“Three of five say global warming is a very serious global problem, and two of three say it will
hurt future generations either a lot or a great deal if nothing is done to reduce it.”

Climate Change

An analysis of isotopes in marine fossils from around the world yielded the most complete
record of Earth's temperatures yet — and showed that the planet is heating up at a rate
unprecedented in the past 11,300 years.

Scientists say that if it weren't for greenhouse gas emissions, a cooling trend that began
5,000 years ago after a shift in the planet's orbit and angle would likely be continuing,
advancing Earth toward another ice age. Instead, global warming at its current pace will
heat the planet between 2 and 12 degrees further by 2100, challenging many species'
ability to adapt. "The climate changes to come," says NASA climate researcher Gavin
Schmidt, "are going to be larger than anything that human civilization has seen in its
entire existence."

11,300 years is a BLIP on the radar of universal time....

Quoted Text
Where did viruses come from?

Image: © ISTOCKPHOTO/SEBASTIAN KAULITZKI
Ed Rybicki, a virologist at the University of Cape Town in South Africa, answers:

Tracing the origins of viruses is difficult because they don't leave fossils and because of the tricks they use to make copies of themselves within the cells they've invaded. Some viruses even have the ability to stitch their own genes into those of the cells they infect, which means studying their ancestry requires untangling it from the history of their hosts and other organisms. What makes the process even more complicated is that viruses don't just infect humans; they can infect basically any organism—from bacteria to horses; seaweed to people.

Still, scientists have been able to piece together some viral histories, based on the fact that the genes of many viruses—such as those that cause herpes and mono—seem to share some properties with cells' own genes. This could suggest that they started as big bits of cellular DNA and then became independent—or that these viruses came along very early in evolution, and some of their DNA stuck around in cells' genomes. The fact that some viruses that infect humans share structural features with viruses that infect bacteria could mean that all of these viruses have a common origin, dating back several billion years. This highlights another problem with tracing virus origins: most modern viruses seem to be a patchwork of bits that come from different sources—a sort of "mix and match" approach to building an organism.


The fact that viruses like the deadly Ebola and Marburg viruses, as well as the distantly related viruses that cause measles and rabies, are only found in a limited number of species suggests that those viruses are relatively new—after all, those organisms came along somewhat recently in evolutionary time. Many of these "new" viruses likely originated in insects many million years ago and at some point in evolution developed the ability to infect other species—probably as insects interacted with or fed from them.


HIV, which is thought to have first emerged in humans in the 1930s, is another kind of virus, known as a retrovirus. These simple viruses are akin to elements found in normal cells that have the ability to copy and insert themselves throughout the genome. There are a number of viruses that have a similar way of copying themselves—a process that reverses the normal flow of information in cells, which is where the term "retro" comes from—and their central machinery for replication may be a bridge from the original life-forms on this planet to what we know as life today. In fact, we carry among our genes many "fossilized" retroviruses—left over from the infection of distant ancestors—which can help us trace our evolution as a species.


Then there are the viruses whose genomes are so large that scientists can't quite figure out what part of the cell they would have come from. Take, for instance, the largest-ever virus so far discovered, mimivirus: its genome is some 50 times larger than that of HIV and is larger than that of some bacteria. Some of the largest known viruses infect simple organisms such as amoebas and simple marine algae. This indicates that they may have an ancient origin, possibly as parasitic life-forms that then adapted to the "virus lifestyle." In fact, viruses may be responsible for significant episodes of evolutionary change, especially in more complex types of organisms.


At the end of the day, however, despite all of their common features and unique abilities to copy and spread their genomes, the origins of most viruses may remain forever obscure.

Did you not listen to the clip you posted? Since you clearly didn't and you clearly don't know anything regarding Carlin, let me enlighten you. Carlin very much agreed in the scientific FACT of global warming. Carlin is of the opinion, and is most of us who agree with the overwhelming scientific evidence of the global warming FACT, that recycling cans and outlawing plastic bags will change global warming. There is so much carbon footprinting by industrial nations that individual personal action is spurious at best,

YET, Carlin is right. Even all the crap we're doing isn't going to kill the planet. HOWEVER- we will change the environment just enough to make the planet inhospitable to humans. We will take a bunch of species with us as well. HOWEVER, Carlin is also correct that the planet will survive. How does "the great and powerful" yahweh fit into reality?

I'm still amused that many people believe that some guy was floating wherever he supposed to be floating for billions and billions and billions and billions.......of years and then decides to "create" the universe. NOW THAT"S FUNNY!
