    The Grey Lady long ago lost her journalistic integrity. I do not read it as I prefer more thorough sources so that I can think for myself.

    Anyway, I'm not surprised at all, but thanks for posting it.

    Excellent find radioman. I think its time for the NYT to stop posing as a real newspaper.

    Funny thing is, I'm pretty much on the fence when it comes to MMGW.

    Do I believe the hype and the "ZOMG!!11!1! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!"? No. I think man's supposed impact on the long term climate of the earth is waaaay overinflated. The key word there being overinflated. Which means at the same time I know that it's simply can't be a good idea to spew a bunch of shit into the atmosphere and expect no impact whatsoever.

    So when you boil it down, I'm for environmental policies and reducing our negative environmental footprint. As long as it does not have a detrimental effect on the economy. You gotta balance it and say "how harmful is this course of action going to be"?

    And it might be prudent as well not to blur the lines between Pollution and actual manipulation of enviroment where the Earth reacts in a negative way.

    YES we pollute, and pollution can kill carbon based life forms, and alter the landscape and the habitat FOR life forms... But One has to remember the resiliency of the Earth itself...provided external forces to the Earth (Meteors/Comets/The Sun), remain constant. (All of which we really at this time can't do a damned thing about )...

    Just a thought...

    Trying to reduce pollution is in everyones best interest. We all want clean air and water.. But extortion through lies and deception is not the way. This scandal will hurt the environazi cause more than if they had actually told the truth. Their agenda now seems to be more about.money power and global governing than it does with saving the planet.

    My favorite examples is the Pentagon Papers.

    They didn't seem to have any problem printing illegally obtained documents if it could help to bring down Nixon.
