    Obama has pledged 100 billion dollars to global warming. Isn't it nice we are spending money we do not have for things we do not even know we can effect?

    No, the presses are fine. We are not allowed to cut down the trees to make the paper. That's caring for the planet. Oops. :eusa_eh:

    Hey Obama, how about forking over the Nobel Prize million? Lead by example.

    P.S. You know Congress has to agree with you Mr. President?

    Dont worry. BO can pledge all he wants but nothing will happen unless Congress Approves it.

    God what am I saying??? Of course those schmucks will approve it. Whats another 100 million when we're already 12 TRILLION in debt. Don't sweat the small stuff!!!

    OK, let's say, just on a whim, that the vast majority of the world scientific community is right...

    and that all the internet conspiracy theorists, right-wing-radio talk-show hosts and the few scientists that refute global warming (having been paid well by the Oil Corporations) are wrong.

    Let's just propose that this is the case. I know it's just CRAZY to do so. I know that of course internet conspiracy theorists are always wiser than the world scientific community, but let's stretch our imaginations for a minute.

    If this is in fact the case, then a large chunk of the world's land mass will soon dissappear, and weather patterns will change turning a large portion of the world's surviving land area into dry, unliveable wastelands. War, disease, starvation and poverty will follow, and BILLIONS of people will likely DIE.

    Now, given the chance of that possibility, however "slight" you may think it is, you don't think it's worth devoting 1/5 of one year's defense budget (without the war funding included) on taking steps to prevent such a catastrophie???

    Seriously? Are you people sociopaths?

    Sorry...Cap & Trades shows that's a lie.

    If it's that important they wouldn't allow anyone to pollute....not just the undeveloped countries.

    It's a hoax because if the threat was real we wouldn't be paying China to pollute. We wouldn't be selling carbon credits and making Al Gore into a Billionaire.

    If the threat was real nobody would be allowed to send Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere.

    We would all be burning newspapers to keep warm.
