If you still believe in global warming, I have a bridge to sell you. It's not a question of whether it's man made or not, it doesn't even exist.

Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you're being had.

So, when markets have been weighted down by inept and excessive regulation, why call this a 'failure of capitalism'?"

I started to raise my eyebrows over this kind of thing about two years ago. I remember the arguments over this with a friend of mine. Here in colorado it was snowing till june this year. JUNE! I told this one lady that the global warming thing sounded good. "When does it start?"
anyway, good article. thanks for sharing.

Other than that, I totally agree with you.Nothing says "idiot inside" better than an Obama/Biden bumper sticker.

I guess this explains why ManBearPig annouced this weekend that he had no interest in the post of Environmental Czar if it was offered to him.
Have I every told you guy and gals that I hate that title 'Czar' or' Tsar' when it's applied to government posts? It's Russian for Cesaer for heaven's sake.
