I've posted my comment here on some other threads here, but its such a important hot topic (Oil/Food prices) can't resist:

"Global Warming"

And what a scam it is, just a ideology fleece job... science can't be up for a vote, either it is or it isn't. That's why the CEO of the Weather Channel and others are in the process of suing Gore Inc and his minions for they're guilt trip/scare tactic fictional movie (yes fictional, Gore Inc tech director even admitted to 'doctoring' photos/comp. generaterated/and even using shots fm Day After Tommorrow movie!!!) and way to make you 'feel better' is to send us money for 'co2 footprint' reduction, carbon 'footprint' etc.... News flash, CO2 is not a 'pollutat', plants need this, and if you want to cutdown, just don't breath! We have trouble predicting the '3 day outlook' even with all of the computer models, advancements, etc... much less 2 wks-1 yr-50-100yrs fm now. Greenland was called 'Greenland' for a reason...look it up. And who is to say that 'warmer planet' is necessarily bad? Much more can be grown (for food, not gas!) etc... what made this Gore dummy the 'super guru'? Cause he put together a fabricated movie to pass it off as legitimate maxim science?

History is full of 'cycles' cooler/warmer/more precipation/less precipation/droughts/floods/storms/etc... a while back 'the experts' thought we'd be in a 'colder period' now, so go figure. Gore doesn't want to give up on his cash cow climate enterprise, absoultally amazing how this is mandatory viewing in many schools and is treated as gospel, not an opinion of Gore's, with no other side to the story. What a brainwash.

Gore Inc will never sit in for a real debate (not cuddle club reporters asking easy yes questions) on this whole 'issue' cause he knows he'll have his heinie handed to him and expose him for a fake/fraud/mental lightweight he is. But the armor of protection is cracking and will break it wide open when he is summoned to court in NY soon. You like our food for gas program?, higher gas prices?, thank the Gore club and other socialists/marksists. Who in right mind would take food (corn/etc..) and turn it into gas, when it takes almost a gal of fuel, to produce a gal of 'ethonol'??!!!.... Sorry but I get worked up when people blame things they can't control/understand (ie the weather, earthquakes, storms, ocean currents, gravity pull etc...) and somehow convience other 'sheeple' that by driving a hybrid, living in a cave, recyling tolietpaper, using ethanol, wearing 100% recycled clothing is somehow going to make a 'difference'.. the only diff. is the higher prices. Rant off.

Another example of the idiotic ideas/policies of the left.
I wonderd why I had trouble finding the 100 watters!

You cannot apply make-up under the new lighting. At least you shouldn't!

Anyway, for a serious reply, I have given up most Beef. Down from several times a week to maybe 6 times a year. It is more for health reasons though. As for global warming, I approach things with more common sense than irrational sky-is-falling ideas. 80% of what we are being told is probably bunk, but it's up to us to sort out and fix the other 20%, IMO.

(Q: Is it true that burning of the rainforests actually produces more CD than ALLLLLL vehicles in the world combined??)

A hoax.

If you need an example of liberal/environmentalist policies gone bad - just look at the impending food crisis in the world, especially corn. Didn't the libs/enviros tell up that Ethanol was a good thing, would help the environment? Why are they not held accountable for their dangerous and wrong-headed policies?
I remember the global cooling scare when I was in high school. I always looked forward to it since there would be more snow to play in. I also remember how ethanol was supposed to save us from ourselves. How long will it be before this global warming stuff is debunked.

So your saying that we are causing global warming by using ac units..

Every other issue (i.e., the war on terrorism, the economy, etc.) is dwarfed by the catastrophic consequences posed by global warming. It is a frightening prospect, and very real. We can see the ice melting at an accelerating pace, and we know what is sure to follow; and yet we fail to act to stop the pollution that is the precipitating cause of the impending ecological disaster. It will be late to counsel then or pray when the devastation brought about by abrupt climate change has been visited upon us. It is no joke - as you shall soon see.
But law says nothing about Global Warming, so it is irrelevant.
