Since fearmongering hasn't worked the alarmists have taken a page out of the religion playbook and are trying guilt.

Global Warming IS a religion. An opiate for atheists.

Scientists warn the sun will 'go to sleep' in 2030 and could cause temperatures to plummet!

Don't throw the past away
You might need it some rainy day

Hey warmers- when is global warming going to arrive in Ohio? Our winters are brutally cold, and I'm often wearing a jacket in the summer when I should be sweating my ass off.

I thought the science was settled? Where is the warming part of global warming?

One of my liberal buddies says, "Cold temps are proof of global warming."

Wow, just wow!

The argument it's cold therefore global warming is false is an argument on the level of scientific illiteracy normally reserved for people who claim the earth is the center of the universe or people who say dogs only beget dogs therefore there is no such thing as evolution.

The global average temperature has been going up this is well documented and the fact you had to wear a jacket doesn't suddenly disprove that.

Then isn't the opposite true, the argument that bad weather "happened" so it must be GW related? We see that all the time.

I lean left, I believe in GW.
I am a bike commuter except in bad weather.
I don't believe my bad weather is related to GW.
What scares me being in Florida is GW melting more ice then normal in the poles.
Nobody (including every scientist on the planet) knows if a particular major weather event is due to GW. Where do you get these wack ideas from you attribute to the left. Stop listening to the wackos.
Rising sea due to melting ice, that is the big problem we are facing.

To ease such propaganda-driven fears:
"Source:
University of Texas at Austin
Summary:
New ground measurements suggest the rate of ice loss of the West Antarctic ice sheet has been slightly overestimated. For the first time, researchers have directly measured the vertical motion of the bedrock at sites across West Antarctica using GPS. The results will lead to more accurate estimates of ice mass loss. science daily

and

"Our surveys indicate that the floes are much thicker and more deformed than reported by most drilling and ship-based measurements of Antarctic sea ice. We suggest that thick ice in the near-coastal and interior pack may be under-represented in existing in situ assessments of Antarctic sea ice and hence, on average, Antarctic sea ice may be thicker than previously thought." nature

Yep and those people are also morons. Anyone who says bad weather X happened therefore global warming is definitely true is an idiot. That is why you see that clap trap on pop news media and not in actual proper scientific reporting. You do see statistical examinations of the severity and frequency of certain bad weather events and people look at whether that is evidence of global warming, but that is a far cry from saying I had to wear a jacket so there is no global warming or I was sweating a lot today therefore there is global warming.

I agree, only a moron would say that bad weather "must" be related to GW.

Why is it with conservatives that listen the fringe morons on the left and post these absurd views?
Dont listen to the fringe wackos on the left. They are insane. They dont represent liberal views,

I am smart enough to not listen to the westboro baptist church on the fringe right because they dont represent christian conservatives.
Fringe wackos on the right do not represent the religious conservatives.

They quote the fringe as if it were representative of the whole because it furthers their agenda. It's as simple as that. The left did the same, here and there, with whack jobs like Glenn Beck (or the Westboro Baptists, or the doctor-killers, or...on and on), but the right's better at repudiating and distancing themselves from those, and the left lets them do it. The right does not return the favor.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
