    Yeah... Why not! Our Government does a great job of volunteering other people's money! Why don't all of these liberals donate their own money to stop man made global warming..... We all know that will never happen.

    These people are obsessed with power... The whole blobal warming things has been debunked and these people still want our money...

    Couple of new shows have been on recently about this that you would might like. First was Stossel's new weekly show. He opened with the globul warming issue. It was interesting how even the worst case scenarios the IPCC has reported could hold some considerable benefits. It also highlighted what have said before and that is the global warming alarmists suffer from an amazing lack of perspective. If you really want to help the impoverished of the world combat global warming would be at teh bottom of this list and in many cases would only make things worse for them.

    The other show is Jess's new one Conspiracy Theory. He did one on globul warming as well, but had more do with the ridiculous amounts of money that some greenies will make perpetuating this lie.

    No, not it has not at all.

    And the fact that you would even consider something so obviously, laughably false suggests that you may not have the clearest issue to discuss this yourself.

    Let me put it this way - given we know for a total, universally accepted fact that 99% of North America's glaciers are in retreat - what is your reading of how this is happening and why?

    Thats the big question, the why?? The ice has come and gone many times in Earths history. They had a summer in the 1300 where it snowed, crops died and people starved to death. No carbon footprint there. Heck places where ice and snow are now were tropical in our earths history. Do we humans have any impact. Yes, but how much and thats the big question which no one seems to be able to answer.

    Does anyone have stats on how much global warming is caused by the explosion of thousands of GBU-10/12/16/24 bombs?

    Yes, that is all true.

    But I think the sensible approach is to define first what is happening, and I think most people are up to speed on that now - glaciers ARE melting, ocean PH IS changing, polar ice IS melting, and ocean levels ARE rising.

    That we know.

    The why may take another 20 years to define with any certainty.

    I think the sensible approach is so shift into renewable energies and abandon outdated technologies like coal. We need to replace the old internal combustion engine.

    Because even if we find out in the year 2100 that this is a natural change, I can't see the harm in us using cleaner, safer energies or more efficient energies. We'll run out of oil one day anyway, after all.

    Proof Positive that this is all a global shakedown. The political equivalent of a mugging.

    The next time someone spouts crap about 'social justice', slap them till they stop moving their mouth saying stupid things.

    These Kooks actually gave Hugo Chavez several standing ovations when he spoke yesterday. I hope people are finally beginning to understand who these kooks really are that are behind this hysterical "Global Warming" fear mongering farce. They are all hardcore Leftist/Socialist Creeps. Once people finally understand this,they will begin to stand up and fight this ignorance. Lets hope it's not too late though.

    Exposed for all the world to see their pettiness and support for cruel, violent men bent on enslaving them all.

    I have said all along that all you have to do is go and do some research to see who it is behind all this hysterical "Global Warming" fear mongering and there is where you will find all the answers you need. There is very little real Science involved with this hysterical fear mongering farce. Make no mistake about it,this is a hardcore Leftist/Socialist Political Movement. Just look at the numerous standing ovations they gave that Dictator Creep Chavez. It's all just a sad farce in the end. Hopefully the people will begin to take this country back from the Socialist Kooks in 2010 & 2012. I just hope it's not to late though.
