They is the scientific community, you must not have been in touch with the ever changing nature of science.
I am serious that we have only witness one global warming cycle out of possible hundreds, that is like in math taking one graph point and making the line the way you wish it to go. The fact that ice has to have been water at some time to freeze tells me that there must have been a time in our planet's history that it was warm enough for water to settle in the poles prior to their freezing.
Pretty much you I agree that the GOP needs to change but to say that no one is ever allow to question anything solely because they aren't a scientist is close minded. Was the printing press made by a scientist? Plus what do you really know about me to say I am not a scientist nor a major in science? You are jumping to conclusion instead of addressing the points and that is an annoyance I have had with people who claim to be from the left.

Democratic Party is for assisting the poor (Welfare). There are people who abuse this system and that system is quite easily taken advantage of and will continue to do so until it is fixed. GOP is against Welfare, but the numbers who use it are hefty and now they vote. So...they need to do some rebuilding. Finding a charismatic, young guy would be a solid start!
Edit: Spelling is srsbusiness.
I found the following really interesting, albeit not unexpected.
"For the United States, climate change impacts include sea level rise for coastal
states, greater threats of extreme weather events, and increased risk of
regional water scarcity, urban heat waves, western wildfires, and the
disturbance of biological systems throughout the country. The severity
of climate change impacts is expected to increase substantially in the
coming decades." - Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and U.S. Global Change Research
Which of these predictions do you think have not occurred? Also as far as the theory of evolution goes, it is accepted widely as fact by the entire international body of scientists. Scientific theory is not a flimsy thing, it is as close to absolute fact as anything can be.
People can question things all they like, but they're probably going to be asking the wrong questions if they're not actually well informed on the topic. I do science for a living, yet I have no delusion that I'm qualified to be a "climate skeptic". It's simply not possible to be well versed in everything; having a tentative trust for experts works a lot better.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FossilThis is illustrated by the fact that the number of species known through the fossil record is less than 5% of the number of known living species, suggesting that the number of species known through fossils must be far less than 1% of all the species that have ever lived.
I am a humble person so I know when I am wrong and I admit that there are times were I do talk out of my ass and this is prolly one of them, so I apologize, but to get on topic we do need a new party to fill in the gap, it time for one of them to fall or both to fall to give way to more moderate policies. Moderation is view as the an evil in politics and part of the reason the republican have lost the majority in congress. The two party systems leads to stagnant government as neither side wishes to budge.
