2008 and 2012 campaigns and is tracking their progress on our Obameter.
45 percent were kept and 25 percent were compromised. Check it out.
The polar vortex has been a part of science for decades, and it certainly does not prove that sea ice is not melting.
His data comes from a study by a bipartisan study commissioned by the League of Conservation Voters that surveyed 600 registered voters. Another study by Pew Research Center, an independent polling organization, surveyed a national sample of
1,504 adults age 18 or older between Oct. 9 and Oct. 13, 2013 found 18% of youth still deny global warming.
This comprehensive editorial reviews a wide range of trends to explore this issue.
Few scientists doubt that temperatures will rise again. The "pause" in global surface temperatures is
temporary, with temperatures poised to rise once the oceans start
releasing more heat, such as during an El Nino event.
A Gallup Poll shows that 42 percent believe in strict creationism and another 31 percent believe that God directed evolution. This is a small drop since the first survey in 1982, but those who do not believe that God had anything to do with creation rose from 9% to 19 percent.
He was citing a study that experts said was "flawed" and the company in
charge of the project, TransCanada, said was "no longer relevant."
This is the pot calling the kettle black in a desperate effort to deny scientific facts. His information came from a blogger whose data was fundamentally flawed. Besides, NASA could not fudge the data for the rest of the world.
Guy Consolmagno, an astronomer and planetary scientist who works for the Vatican Observatory, says science and religious faith are fully compatible. Only fundamentalists on both sides have issues. These are people who cling to the fundamentals of their truth
because they don't have
the confidence or the faith to look at other viewpoints and facts.
“When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining
God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is
not so,” Francis said Oct. 27. Unlike much of evangelical Protestantism in the U.S., Catholic teaching traditionally has not been at odds with evolution.

The allegations raised by skeptics like the author of The Telegraph the source of Perino, have had no effect on the consensus that the Earth has seen an increase in temperatures over the past 100 years.This claim has been debunked before. To continue to repeat it, moves this into realm of the ridiculous.
Bush, who has said he will run in the Republican presidential primary, says without government funding "we lose the initiative to cure diseases." This is an unpopular stand among republicans whose desire to cut the budget overshadows other concerns.
Georgia’s largest utility said that the program in Georgia is thriving. Part of Georgia's implementation
plan was that using solar power wouldn’t affect rates, and it hasn’t.
Lindsey Graham is the only GOP candidate who regularly says that climate change is actually happening and humans are causing it, and he was attacked for it during the GOP debate. Other than that attack, global warming was not mentioned.
The IPCC actually said it is "extremely likely" (meaning a 95 percent
confidence level) that humans are causing climate change; and it is "very likely" (meaning a 90 percent confidence level) that
greenhouses gases are the driver. And scientists overwhelmingly agree.
Santorum's claim is wrong on several fronts. (1) Richard Tol, the actual head of the IPCC, is an adviser to the Global Warming Policy Foundation, and
supports the 97% claim. The critic Santorum speaks of is just an economist who has collaborated with global-warming doubters and has since left the IPCC. (2) At least three surveys support the 97% claim.
The Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
performed the first in-depth federal look at conversion therapy and concluded that "none of the existing research" supports that gender orientation can be changed. Conversion Therapy has resulted in many suicides.
A study by Baylor University researcher Aaron Franzen found frequent
Bible reading predicted greater support for issues ranging from the
compatibility of science and religion, important of seeking social and economic justice, to more humane treatment of
