    The global warming party hearings received a tepid response from both the Democrat House and the media - Al Gore is losing both momentum and credibility.

    The most interesting point of the Dobb's clip is the following:

    "Well, Earth Day is this week, and here are some words of doom and gloom from leading scientists, academics, and authors on our climate and environment associated with Earth Day...

    Journalist Peter Collier wrote, "One to two million people per year will be starving to death during the next 10 years." Biologist Paul Ehrlich claimed that "most people will die in the greatest catacalysm of mankind." Harvard biologist George Wall said, "If we don't act now, civilization will end between 15 or 30 years." And ecologist Kenneth Watt claimed that in 15 years, "Air pollution will reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the earth by one-half."

    The above quotes were from Earth Day - 1970.

    Not surprised. People are always trying to use fear to manipulate us.
