    I guess Prof Young must be one of those socialist/communist “scientists” that actually believes in the “so-called science of global warming, now called climate change”. How can we possibly take ANYTHING this guy says seriously, he’s even appeared on NPR!

    Geology, cosmotology….same thing…. all nonsense when the earth in only 6000 years old.

    Everyone knows that it’s all part of intelligent design that waters will rise. Remember Noah and the flood? It’s all a plan from god not global warming. This guy at the CC may use facts to prove his point but anyone can use fact to prove something so what’s the point. we need to ignore things so they go away. We need to believe that science, when we disagree with it, is a commie plot to fool people.

    See, it’s so easy it’s stupid.

    Yeah , he’ll probably use facts to make his point. Commies do that kind of tricky stuff . Why not pass a law in NC so you can’t base state policy about the rise of the sea level along the coast. Oh, wait, that’s already been done.

    Yeah Jack/Alan/ML,
    I bet he will not bring up the fact that we have seen no warming for 17 years, or since the “theory” was come up with.
