    With industries being affected by global warming, does this mean the GOP will start to take it seriously?

    The title of the op is just flat out a lie. No where in the article does it even remotely suggest that Coke as decided that any of these difficulties are a direct result "global warming" or "climate change".


    All the quote from Coke says is that Coke sees things like droughts effecting their bottom line. Coke itself never makes a connection between droughts and global warming.

    Again Nike does not make a connection between the droughts and this false science of climate change. They are just recognizing the financial effects of the droughts. This kind of behavior is at the very core of the so called climate change science.

    You read with tinted glasses. But even you someday will wake to the truth. Global warming computer models have predicted this for years.

    You cherry pick your quote. Rather like proof texting the Bible to prove a belief that is wrong as you do not like the truth.

    Bold is to emphasis the point.

    As I said, even you someday will have to admit the truth ... unless you are like the flat-earthers.

    CTB wake up to the truth? He knows the truth. He's just shilling for his socialist puppet masters, lulling us to sleep with his inconsequential nonsense while the real efforts to undermine our economy and our government as being successfully carried out beyond our sight.

    You're right. It's not explicitly stated by a Coke representative that global warming is the cause. If Coke truly believed in global warming it shouldn't be a stretch to get a direct quote. It may well be that Coke does blame global warming for the freakish weather, but the article doesn't support it. I think the writer of the article is either dishonest, incompetent, or both.

    Indiana has been experiencing one of the worst winters since the blizzard of 1978. Since the first of December we have had over three feet of snow here in the Indy area--a huge total for us. We have been in the deep freeze for days with temperatures more or less around zero. The forecast for the weekend is more snow.

    What is really happening is that the sun has gone to sleep and there is no activity and no flares on the sun:

    Then explain why the global warming computer models didn't predict the freakish winter weather we're having. Or the abnormal cooling of the sun.

    This is the coldest and snowiest winter in Indy since 1978 when we had a severe blizzard. Our heating bills are going higher because Obama has a War on Coal and does not want us to have cheap electricity here in Indiana, a coal-producing state. So natural gas is rising in price due to increased demand for home heating and electrical power production. Thanks, Democrats.

    What is really happening according to the British is that the sun is sleeping--that is, there are no solar flares to keep the polar vortex up at the pole where it belongs:

    Proves nothing. Prague in the Czech Republic is having the one of the warmest winters on record. Some spring flowers are already blooming.

    We all agree that place-to-place and day-to-day variations in weather do not mean anything and we further add that there is no such thing as global warming. We think that it deals with sun spots, or perhaps only a relatively few decades of accurate records versus the thousands of years of weather since Noah's flood. We know that it made Al Gore rich and Barack Obama insane.

    So anyway the op is an intentional misrepresentation of what it claims.
