We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Moonbat warmist crank James Lovelock interviewed by a sexy babe named Gaia, at Jules. Lovelock predicts a "90% cull" of humans. I predict that somebody in his family will get him back on his medication.
MarkD ... yes, indeedy, my friend. We are all going to die -- eventually. And I'm closer to it than you are. But this guy waving it over my head that manmade global warming is going to do the trick, is just blowing smoke.
And what's this Gaia crap anyway? My name is Mother Nature, and I have a longer memory than this guy has. It was hotter in the Medieval Warming Period than it is now. Crops were lusher. People were more comfortable and civilization flourished at an unprecedented rate.
Every time some real scientist comes up with a convincing argument, that the Global Warmingist idiots should probably take note that their climate data are screwed up and that the globe has been cooling not warming for more than ten years, and that the seas are not rising precipitously, Al Gore panics and rallies the troops of Believers to rush around and say, "It is too warming! We are too all going to be killed! Or drowned! Or drowned and killed!"
