Think of all the new construction jobs created and the economic opportunity brought to previously less desirable regions.

In fact, I think I’ll invest in some farmland at the foothills of the appalachians in the hope that I’ll have a beachfront view in a few years….

Number one, they are not sold on the fact that the globe is warming. Number two therefore they are not sold on it being man-caused.

I will ask the “global warming” advocates here this question….What is the optimal temperature of the earth?

What she rejects is anthropogenic global warming via greenhouse gas buildup.

We were in an ice age for the last 10,000 years, it’s about time things warmed up a bit around this planet.

However let’s us not forget that if it was not for a 10,000 year warming trend “Global Warming” all those making comments would be setting under hundreds of feet of ice from the ‘last’ ice age.

Palin’s climate report statement (the link isn’t working for me now, so I hope I got it …) “Realizing nothing can be done about climate change …” is so extreme and uninformed that I don’t even think George W. Bush would say it!

Duh … what about reducing greenhouse gas emissions ?

As for your comment “… let the woman speak …” what’s that supposed to mean ? I actually took the trouble to dig out her few statements on the subject and get the links on my blog so we could in fact read them. When a candidate is nominated to one of the most important world positions with respect to US and global climate policy, the least one should do is scrutinize what she has said.

As for your ad hominen remarks such as ‘whining’ I’m leaving them unedited this one time because it sounds so amusingly like the recent comment by Republican Phil Gramm (for which he got removed from the McCain campaign) calling Americans a “nation of whiners” with regard to America’s economic problems.

Keeping in mind if you truely research the BS that environuts put out you will see they strategically forget to mention while there is “warming” in X, Y, and Z, there is COOLING in A,B,C and there is stagnation in G,H,I…

But your precious ecohorde will scream and yell that I am “in the pocket” of big oil because I think for myself.

I don’t have any problem with stopping the usuage of fossil fuels because standing behind one I cough and it is sickning to see the sludge, on the other hand it is rather arrogant what the liberal masses want to shove down our throats.

Try to think for yourself for once. Your “proof” is just as “sound” as her opinion… so let the woman speak and quit your whining.

The uncertainties are the rate at which warming will occur, and the effects that will flow from global warming. The rate is an issue because the models used are not perfect (what a surprise), and the effects are uncertain because the environment and the interrelationship between flora and fauna and climate is much more complex than we currently understand (no surprise there either). Those who scoff at the concept altogether [scientifically a very miniscle minority] are whistling past the graveyard (to borrow an old phrase). One can disagree about rate and effects, but the reality of it happening is unfortunately very apparent. For a discussion of such topics, see ://eartotheground.typepad.com/weblog/glo bal_warming/

Guess what…where I live the climate changes drastically from January to July and then back again.

What happened to global warming. We just experienced a lower than average summer in regards to temperature.

It is a political issue not a scientifice issue and when it finally goes away I want Al Gore and the IPCC to give back the nobel peace prize. And Al can give back his academy award too.

Many globes are currently warming. I wonder if we can get the other planets to also pay the carbon taxes that are being pushed globally. UNIVERSALLY!

We are screwing up people and most likely have screwed things to a point of no return.

This is serious ! it is not a FEAR that we can run and hide from…it is apparent just open your eyes and do some research.

I dont blog, because i dont know how to bring people to see what is in front of them when they try so hard to remain blind.

You can think therefore, you are
