What if the climate meme was in the other direction?

    if warming and more plentiful CO2 was considered a good thing instead of the present fad of thinking it is bad what sort of media stories would we see?

    -more cultivatable land leads to record food crops.

    -warming has led to historical lows in hurricanes

    -cheap energy leds to improved conditions everywhere but especially the third world

    I could go on but my point is that almost all the evidence is equivical and can be spun in any direction. it just depends on who is telling the story.

    This interview excerpt shows that the environment and "saving the planet" is the furthest thing from their minds, they are interested in controlling people and they will use any methods possible to get that control.

    denying what the prevailing scientific belief merely to further your historically failed ideas is nothing but partisanship.

    I agree that bad news is more newsworthy than good news. and that many people like to take positions that make them feel superior to others

    Accepted and consensus climate science of the day told us we should go and plow up the great arid plains, this would make it rain. "Rain follows the Plow" it was called. This "science" like so much of what we see today, had a political agenda, at the time that agenda was called "manifest destiny" and of course the gullible public fell for it hook, line and sinker.

    They moved west, plowed up the plains, but gee, the rain didn't come! The climate stayed the same as it had been for centuries and still is!

    Your blind faith in science, no matter what it tells you, replaces religion in your life. Your total lack of any skepticism shows you're just a kool-aid drinking tool.

    No the prevailing scientific postion on ANYTHING is our best knowledge and you refusse our best knowledge to hang onto your historically failed political ideas.



    Denying science is a really stupid way to run anything let alone the most powerful country in the world.

    You didn't even read the post, or check the link.

    Science has been WRONG before, sub-moron. Denying THAT is what is really stupid.

    Again we see you're mucking up what could have been an intelligent thread, with your hyper-partisan trolling nonsense.
