    Some interesting reading about how the politicians who support carbon taxes etc. are getting voted out of office at a quickening rate. Also the UK long a supporter of anything "green" has started some massive cuts to their programs, some as high as 25%.

    The pols are finally getting it.

    Yes indeed catastrophes do happen. And now hopefully the money that has been pissed down the drain will be used for something more useful.

    The Planet warms and the Planet cools. Humans will either adapt or they wont. All this hysterical fear mongering is pointless. It is what it is in the end.

    If the Planet really is warming,Polar Bears and other species will simply have to adapt. If they can't adapt,they will go extinct. This is the way it has always been on this Planet and that's the way it will always be. This stuff really isn't anything new. There is a whole lot of cash to be made off the Global Warming hysteria. Just keep that in mind the next time you see hysterical fear mongering over it. Just follow the money.

    Just follow the money. It's certainly no coincidence that the people pushing the Global Warming scam are the same people who stand to make $Billions off new Global Warming legislation. Follow the money. Nuff said.

    Let's see how long the cheerleading lasts once the cash spigot is turned off. I predict it'll be like a california beach house party when the drugs and liquor run out.

    Just look at GE's very cozy relationship with this White House. GE stands to make $Trillions off possible new Global Warming legislation. So it's certainly no coincidence they have suddenly become so "Green." People just need to use common sense and follow the money. It's all just sad fear mongering hysteria in the end. I do think many more people are catching on though.
