    And your point is, dear lady? The only agenda I'm seeing here is Exxon/Mobil and it's propaganda arm, The American Enterprise Institute, attempting to subvert a document backed by several years worth of rigorous scientific study and peer review.

    It ain't the cleanest thing in the world, but it ain't the dirtiest, either. Opposing lawyers 'buy' opposing expert opinions all the time, and people generally get what's going on. It's not like scientists don't have to eat. AEI is an advocacy group, so as long as what comes out is identified as sponsored by them, that should be enough disclosure.

    And the attempt to link up the Bush administration is way wrong.

    Which is what the AEI letter to staff made clear and the commentator also. Good point WJ.

    Bully, speaking of your consensus, since when are political scientists, sociologists, historians, biologists, pyschologists, etc., qualified to sign onto reports regarding 'global climate change' other than for their opinion? And the two doctors from TX, their degrees? Oh yeah.
