Global Warming -- Research Issues
Not too bad. Much misinformation, but at least they admitted that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. The comparison of CO2 and water vapor was the same old misinformation, but, given that is all they have, what would one expect. Mentioning the time that water vapor spends in the atmosphere, under 10 days, would not have bolstered their arguement.
The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) is a think tank. It is a "communications and research foundation dedicated to providing free market solutions to today's public policy problems ... [and] prides itself on aggressively marketing its products for maximum impact by 'targeting key political leaders and special interest groups, establishing on-going ties with members of the print and electronic media, and testifying before Congress, federal agencies, state lawmakers, and national organizations.'" -- NCRP, The Strategic Philanthropy of Conservative Foundations Funding

Of course, one might be more impressed were this from a scientific society, or a National Academy of Science. Or if were even from a major university. A political organization, for that is what a conservative thing tank is, is hardly something that I would quote in a scientific debate.
war is good...it kills humans....the source of all "bad" co2.....hey wait vegitarians only eat plants which like co2....and the don't eat meat which use to be animals that breath out c02.......kill all vegitarians......
So we are to only accept info from people who believe in Global Warming is that what your saying?
I post my info, you post yours, we all make a decision based on all the info.
And we don't listen to Politicians and Scientists who say "Global Warming is fact. The debate is over. Give us your money".
