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.

As a geology graduate, I get global warming: has happened; is happening; will happen. That's how the earth (and solar system work). That being said, we have always tried to "walk gently this good earth"; it's good stewardship.
When I hear the warmists, my first query is "how do you live"? For I believe Sr Joan Chittister's comment that "what you do not live, you have no right to require". I am not willing to further reduce our lifestyle while Drs. Suszuki, Gore, et al, continue to live lifestlyes - and create carbon footprints - I can only dream of.
