Demotivational Posters: Global Warming Denial

“Climate change — to deny it exists, to just put your head in the sand and, ‘oh no, it doesn’t exist, what are you talking about,’ is about like standing on the floor of Macy’s during the month of December and claiming Santa Claus doesn’t exist." - Rep. Nick Rahall, Democratic incumbent for the U.S. House in the 3rd District

I know true believers of man-made global warming will dismiss this quote as a mere slip of the tongue. I say it’s a Freudian slip, as if the representative’s subconscious is admitting that believing in man-made global warming is just as realistic as believing in Santa Claus. Scratch that. Believing in Santa Claus is more realistic, considering the evidence for old Saint Nick. (How else do you explain the presents under the tree and the missing milk and cookies?)

Now, I’m not a hardcore skeptic of global warming, so I don’t have any documentation on hand to back up my skepticism. However, my friends Kajm and MasterOfPointillism have articles highlighting scientific papers and scientists that argue against man-made global warming. Feel free to read the articles in the links below, and educate yourself!
