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.
Yet another lunatic who has the gall - no, the sheer stupid hatred for Gaia that wants her dead and burned to cinders - to cast aspersions on the notion of CO2 based AGW!
These people need to be arrested and tortured. How dare this loon promote the idiotic fallacy that the Sun is a driving force in Earth's climate. Gaia has a fever! The treemometers are calling to us through the eons, pleading with us to save Gaia. But we won't listen. We plunge ahead until we burst into flames. Ted Turner gives it 30 or 40 years. I think he's too optimistic. 2012 at the latest. No corn, no food, just cannibals.
In case you might have missed it, a teenager named Kristen Byrnes did a four-month science project on Al Gore's miserably inaccurate "Inconvenient Truth" and took it apart [successfully] point by point. Somehow, the mainstream media missed this [out to lunch, maybe?] but her conclusions were available on the Web under the title "Ponder the Maunder." It's an excellent job of a takedown, by the way.
Now Ted Turner says we'll all be eating each other because of the devastating heat.
I'll say one thing ... nobody's going to want to eat him, the tough, depraved old goat.
As for Kristen, I predict great things for her, and wish her the best.
My hunch, founded on basic common sense, has been that warmer is better than cooler in terms of global trends and if anthorpormorphic contrinbution to warming is true, than that should be considered a good thing, particularly with evidence of a pending trend to cooler.
I blaim the 'scientists' who've signed on to the warming agenda as they are either total frauds or they have surrendered their commitment to truth and science for political and economic gains...off with their heads.
Politicians are just being politicians who are always looking for the next great 'problem' for them to exploit through government solutions, i.e., control.
Problem is that 'global warming' or the more stupid 'global climate change' and 'green' has been so effectively drummed into people's consciousness that otherwise reasonably smart people simply accept theses banal cliches as truth.
I do my part by challenging and scoffing at this nonsense at every possible opportunity.
I suppose the irony is lost on Al Bore that his 10K sf energy sucking mansion is actually contributing, if only microscopically, to offset global cooling. Always follow what they do, not what they say. He's acting as if the world will actually benefit from his carbon footprint...dope
