Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

Global warming isn't science at all. It's a political agenda.

Nope. To me it is so blatantly obvious what is going on that I've given up research on it. And I've given up hope, we're going down this road whether we want to or not. I'm all for saving the planet and being responsible. But I'd rather it be my choice and not forced upon me. But that's the way it is going.

Greg

agree

I am no genius or anything, but after looking at climate data over a 60 year span it seems obvious to me the planet cycles it temperature. Alot of countries recorded there worst winters in years and some there worst ever. We are also in the middle of a very cool spring, yet everyday on tv they wanna tell me its warming outside

Yes, and apparently Mars is also going through sometype of global warming, with melting of its polar cap.
I don't think exhaust emissions can be blamed for that!
Then again who knows what goes on there!

I'm tired of the politicians and scientists sucking all the fun out of everything. Eggs are bad for you....eggs are good for you. Wine is bad for you....wine is good for you. Right now the politicians in our County are trying to regulate the color of newspaper dispensers. They don't want them to "clash" with the ambiance of the area. Let me tell you...the ambiance is nothing that great. Why don't they work on REAL problems, like homelessness, crime and drugs.
