    30 years ago, scientists had the world believing we were all going to need snowmobiles. Now everything thinks the world is melting. Palin is 100% right in that there are NATURAL climate cycles on Earth. There's a lot of science out there to prove it. Sure, humans don't help, but we certainly aren't the primary cause.

    But to what extent is it our fault? Are we 1% of the problem? Are we 80% of the problem? Being that scientists have not been able to prove that an increase in CO2 increases the temperature to what extent would you punish companies for their CO2 emissions? Seems to me that we should wait until we have more proof before we start punishing people who may, or may not be causing the problem...

    Don't you agree?

    They aren't punishing anyone but the taxpayer again. Actually Al Gore is just stealing from them to get richer. The CO2 still flows--we jsut get charged for it. Great solution Al.
