    I think that was one of the least substantive op-eds I have ever read; lots of generalizations. Who in any of the campaign doesn't know how to speak English?

    Also this quote:
    The Bush team leaves us with another debt — one to Mother Nature. We have added tons more CO2 into the atmosphere these last eight years, without any mitigation effort. As a result, slowing down climate change in the next eight years is going to require even bigger changes and investments in how we use energy.
    doesn't hold any water.

    To say human beings are responsible for global warming is another big myth. Another scare tactic. People like Al Gore has no idea what he's talking about.

    I'm quite sure he/she is implying that Bush can't speak English and is a person many would feel comfortable about drinking a beer with but not running the country.

    And, saying that global warming is caused by humans is only an exaggeration/assumption. The leading theory is that it's caused from Carbon emissions by humans. Regardless though, it's a problem/threat (global warming) and we need to both find the cause and thus the cure for it.

    YOu really need to stop listening to Bush if you think humans are not causing Global Warming. And I bet the regulations that Bush is cutting is alright to you.

    Bush. And while I still can't decode his gibberish after 8 years, the NY Times can't get over the fact that he's not the opponent this time.

    You're wrong about global warming, but I didn't want to get into a debate about global warming here. I have started a thread on the myth of global warming: http://www.usmessageboard.com/environment/63316-global-warming-is-a-myth.html

    OMG, that made me laugh. :lol:

    This is a good article. No one should ever vote based on who'd be cool to have a beer with, or who seems like a regular joe. I think Kerry lost a few million votes because of that windsurfing ad. How ridiculous is the "elitist" tag that gets thrown around?
