    Because the sane people in the middle don't take up arms over an issue that's not yet settled

    Perhaps because leftists naturally gravitate toward doom-and-gloom stories and anything that involves increases in authoritarian central control. I can't speak for the righties, as I'm a libertarian.

    I used to be one of the cargo cult until the early '90s, when I started asking questions about research that debunkers had been doing. For doing so, my former "friends" treated me as though I was a Catholic who had spent Sunday morning mass time with wiccans.

    Since that time, I've become interested in linguistics and semantics, and found the language of the warmist cult to be deceptive at the low end and outright fraudulent at the high. Moreover, history is littered with the intellectual corpses of doom-and-gloomers like Malthus, JK Galbraith and Paul Erlich, not to mention public scare campaigns like the Red Scare and Y2K.

    Simply put, the warmist cult has so many problems in logic on so many levels so that they are incredible.

    Because the left wing wants to tax the ever loving crap outta the Right Wing. That's why.

    I've been trying to read some of the threads, it's hard to get through all the garbage of the flaming on there, but so far I think this is the best post I've seen on the subject by Navy1960:

    If the dilettantes were not given the impression that they can play at science by following the example of Al Gore, I do believe that this never would have even gotten to the point where scientists would sell out their integrity for politics.

    The climate science is so soiled at this point by politics. It has been for years now.

    I don't consider myself hysterical over the issue, but Cap and Trade could push me in that direction. That and the sheer lunacy of global warming supporters. These people are counting cow and sheep farts for heaven's sake.
