In the 80s there was a “… dearth of actual empirical information” that the Soviet Union would ever actually attack the U.S. (i.e. it had never happened). Yet this did not stop Reagan and the Republicans from squandering scores of billions of taxpayer dollars on building more missiles.

As for “legitimate scientists on both sides of the debate surrounding global warming theory”

The preponderance of legitimate scientist do not seriously question that the huge emissions of greenhouse gases by humans will be affecting the global climate negatively.

I suppose that you do not consider the **possibility** of serious crop failures, invasive diseases, and rising water levels and all the political turmoil that would ensue as a security issue?

She’s worried about terrorism when the state is going bankrupt??

Typical GOP – spend, spend, spend on military and security like Blackwater and KBR who screwed the US govt out of millions of $ they can’t account for.

There have been and always will be volcanoes and some are more devastating and climate changing then others. That’s nature.

if you are saying we should just continue to spew pollution as volcanoes spew larger amounts, then you don’t get it… We need to stop polluting our environment and changing nature. Nature will always have surprises for us, but we can and should do our part to make the world safe for us to inhabit.

We really are doing nothing of the sort and our reliance on oil and closing our eyes as the oil spills is proof.

Climate change is real, but I would rather not have it change drastically before attempting to curb it. Doing nothing should never be an option… but alas it is.

How will she suck up our tax dollars for her luxury if elected? We don’t need more greedy politicians, I don’t care what side they’re on.

She’s evidently not well educated if she truly doesn’t know the difference between ‘climate’ and ‘weather.’ If she knows the difference, then she is deliberately manipulating the words of a rival. We need educated, honest and honorable politicians in office.

In becoming CEO at HP she showed she can fool people into believing she has what it takes to get to the top, but she soon revealed greed and ineptitude. Thankfully for HP did not to stay there long. Let California voters not make the same mistake as the HP Board.

Anybody who would vote for her just because she’s a Republican is putting party politics ahead of the national interest.

She was fired from HP for being a complete incompetent. Her purchase of Compaq almost bankrupted the company.

She could not tell the truth if her life depended on it.

Fiorina was even worse for H-P than Sarah Palin was for Alaska.

Strange how our Nobel Prize winner and savior Gore didnt have anything to say. Equally interesting is that the media never reported it either.

One imagines there is some comfort in seeing that in California as elsewhere, not much has changed.
