    UCS and Chicago Community Leaders Speak Out in Support of EPA’s Proposed Carbon Pollution Standard


    And this just through the Chicago national hearing site! It is heartening to see an informed and critically aware public begin to act in the interest of all.

    The union of concerned scientists? You really take that bunch seriously? You may as well take your que from the muppets. Oddly enough, I was just reading an article about a member of the union of concerned scientists complete with photos. Here is an example of how thoroughly the union of concerned scientists "vets" its members.

    union of concerned scientists.....laughing in your face pal.

    By the way, old rocks claims to be a member of a scientific organization. If he isn't lying, dollars to donuts he is one of Kenji's fellow members of the union of concerned scientists. He has certainly demonstrated that his understanding of the science is about equal to Kenji's.

    I have yet to see any of your reckonings or prognostications that I would consider worth getting excited about.

    What no outrage over the fraud committed?! curious why you'd consider such fraudulent deception to be something worthy of lauding?

    Regardless, being a "member" of the UCS merely adds one to the rolls of contributing donors and gains one access to some member archives and websites, it does not make one one of the UCS experts or fellows who make up the body of the organization and give it its organizational rigor and credibility on scientific issues.

    The world is bass-ackward to liberals. Cities like Chicago are "left holding the bag" because of government regulations.

    If you say so, I don't waste much time on liberals or their confused misunderstandings and beliefs,...but that's just me.

    Well, better to be thought of as progressive than regressive.

    Progressive - Progressivism is a political attitude favoring or advocating changes or reform.

    Conservative - Conservatism in general, these are people who want less changes, a stronger central gov't, and fewer individual rights.

    Initially the conservatives in our fledgling nation were the party in favor of maintaining union with England. But now we tread rather far from environment and into politics, better to leave those discussions for that forum.
