    If the republicans weren't successful in co-opting the tea party movement the AGW deniers certainly were successful. They're tied at the hip, because you can't be a libertarian and accept that global warming is a problem for us in the near future. You HAVE to say no, you HAVE to deny it or you're a liberal intent on adding more government to our lives.

    I'm sure President Romney will bring the Tea Partiers back into the fold with his inaply named 'War on Climate'. :)

    Now yer talking! I've a been without a good war for a couple of months now. Nothing protects freedom like defense spending and tax breaks to the super rich.

    I'm sure the queen of England will be glad to hear her coal mines are back in vogue.

    I saw this last night...very sobering.
    As one very conservative Republican SC politician who had been "removed" from his office by voters because he espoused a belief in climate change stated (and I paraphrase based on my recollection):

    "98 doctors tell you that you need to treat your child or its going to die and 2 tell you to wait and do more tests... which way are you going to decide?"

    I would add to his comment to take into consideration that the 2 dissenting doctors stand to benefit financially if you don't treat your child.

    That was a good program, of course the nay sayers hacked it to death.

    Follow the money. I did for the links provided earlier by TMonter. The "scientist" providing the numbers is on Exxon's payroll. The numbers may be legit or may be cherrypicked to prove a point, but the source is suspicious.

    Agreed, I will close it up on a funny note.
