Letterman had a good one last night. Bush wants to spend billions to send a man to the moon in three days. Hey, it's a heckuva improvement as it only cost the country about the same amount for him in five days to get from Crawford to Washington.

Yeah, I know. It's just a late night comedian, but he's done his share of Clinton bj jokes as well.

"The Sun's radiance may well have an impact on climate change but it needs to be looked at in conjunction with other factors such as greenhouse gases, sulphate aerosols and volcano activity," he said. The research adds weight to the views of David Bellamy, the conservationist. "Global warming - at least the modern nightmare version - is a myth," he said. "I am sure of it and so are a growing number of scientists. But what is really worrying is that the world's politicians and policy-makers are not.

"Instead, they have an unshakeable faith in what has, unfortunately, become one of the central credos of the environmental movement: humans burn fossil fuels, which release increased levels of carbon dioxide - the principal so-called greenhouse gas - into the atmosphere, causing the atmosphere to heat up. They say this is global warming: I say this is poppycock."

The scientists have themselves to blame. As the cold war was winding down, research grants were drying up, so they made up global warming and scared everyone into giving them money to study it. The process by which this occurred was more organic and less conspiratorial than I just made it sound, but basically that's what happened.

I am actually surprised it has become so accepted as fact by the general public. To me it is still a new idea -- I remember when they first came up with it in the 80's as an idea. I thought, that's interesting -- I'll be keeping an eye on what they come up with to support it. I'm still waiting, but the endless repetition of the thesis seems to have turned it into a fact. I guess it is still generating those research grant dollars, in any case...

Ex-EPA Chiefs Blame Bush in Global Warming

By JOHN HEILPRIN, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Six former heads of the Environmental Protection Agency — five Republicans and one Democrat — accused the Bush administration Wednesday of neglecting global warming and other environmental problems.

"I don't think there's a commitment in this administration," said Bill Ruckelshaus, who was EPA's first administrator when the agency opened its doors in 1970 under President Nixon and headed it again under President Reagan in the 1980s.

As far as over-education, Orwell put it best when he said some ideas are so stupid only intellectuals could believe them. People believe lots of wacky stuff only because they are taught so when evidence and common sense says otherwise. Marxism, for instance. Environmentalist doomsday propaganda, for instance (overpopulation, global warming, etc.) Economic policies that keep people in poverty when they are supposed to do the opposite.

I can believe that, if the people were more evenly distributed, there would be less of a sense of 'overpopulation', of course nations, economics, power structures, institutions, property issues (residency rights, home values, etc) and politics, etc. obviously get in the way. As the late comedian Sam Kinnison said in his act, not to keep sending food aid overseas to starving desert areas because "we should move these people to WHERE THE FOOD IS!"

Yes, some regions are overpopulated to where the economic systems, food expiration date constraints, and local politics (civil, tribal and national wars) make food delievery, and stable economic trade, extremely shaky.

But I'm not sure that changing the current people distribution would reduce global warming.

Hate to jinx him, but I'm right with Game Theory on this one. I wish I had Paul Ehrlich's money, and what has he done, except write Chicken Little thrillers? And he's won Nobels, or Pulitzers, or some damn thing.
The amazing thing is that humans cheat nature, in the sense that a disease that wipes out, or at least THINS out a less-than-optimally sized group of, say, zebras can have little or no effect on humans. Now, part of our "higher" nature is that we don't normally kill our own for expediency. If a baby bird is born retarded, the others will peck it to death, knowing it could not survive in the wild. We not only comfort and coddle all children, we bring them in out of the wild. Now, QUALITY of life is dreadful in too many cases, but we believe life is worth living, regardless. (Please, no mention of abortion here.) But isn't it presumptuous of us to tell people around the world how many children to bear?
As to the Chinese situation, I think that had to do with easier control of the people, maybe? Lesser (govt./henchman :: common man) ratio. Make sense?

As to unchecked organisms dying out, I think far more common is the die-off-and-build-back-up model.

A very good and interesting point, Toetoe. Unlike the animials, humankind has the thinking and reasoning process. We've seen and learned to overcome many of the diseases that once killed countless humans. Plus, we have the ability to anticipate things coming, and to prepare for the future and take action, vs. the animals who react to the events around them and as instict tells them.

Not so according to the financial markets. Prices of resources and commodities have skyrocketed over the last several years in part due to demand caused by burgeoning population in Asia. Will the average Indian or Chinese ever reach the standard of living that is currently obtainable in the west? I doubt it, because they won’t enjoy the LOW cost of energy that industrialized nations benefited from. Next to energy, China’s major concern is environment. In fact, as wild as this may seem to some, there are actually environmental riots in China.

It would certainly be a wild idea for people in US to believe in Karl Marx? Yet they fail to understand how some tech and automobile workers have attained the goal of bearing the fruit of their labor. Just mention the word “stock option” and they get defensive, but yes these workers are bearing the fruit of their labor. Doesn’t GM exist to provide their workers with generous pensions and medical benefits? So, how is Karl Marx wacky. His economic theory of workers getting more for their labor is the mainstay of western industrialization.

But if it makes you libs feel better, be the first to give up your cars and live in unheated an unairconditioned houses. Show us how it's done.

According to that article, I must be a racist...since I own big cars and a nice home. Now evertime I drive, I'll be thinking: How many blacks have I killed today am killing with my big machines? :rolleyes:

One of the most ignorant and stupid articles I ever read... Just more liberal lies about the present.

Be a Liberal! Rewrite the Past. Lie about the Present. And offer no hope for the Future.

That article could be nominated for the dumbest thing ever written (okay, maybe not ever, but at least so far in 2006).

Global warming not good for blacks . . .

Not good for Russians either, poor bastards aren't getting enough of it...

At a zoo in Lipetsk, south of Moscow, director Alexander Osipov said monkeys would be given wine three times a day "to protect against colds," the RIA-Novosti news agency reported, while Rossiya television said a circus sea lion was being treated for pneumonia with brandy body rubs.

lol...It's always nice to read this board when they claim 5 Republicans are wrong and only 1 Democrat is wrong.

Those Republican EPA heads under Nixon and Reagan..now what could they know more than GW? .... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Can't you ever look at things without a political filter?
GW is not a political issue - it is a myth. It makes no difference what political party a guy is in - if he says we have a GW crises, he is wrong.

That is not nature's fault - that is African's fault.

Another myth -- overpopulation. It is the OVEReducated that have the problem here. The world is not overpopulated, and we are not headed for it either. There are some areas that are a bit too densely populated, but globally the world is no where near overpopulated...

Canada has 304 kazillion square miles of land, but everyone lives in Toronto - and they ALL were on the QEW last night! :mad:

Global Warming is caused by excessive solar heat, typical amounts of Liberal hot air, and over-indulgence in flatulence-producing foods. End of story.

Has nothing to do with overpopulation; has everything to do with education or lack of it. Aids is the most preventable disease in the world. BTW, GW has comitted more money to Africa to help with the education and the suffering than any other pres, yet he gets no credit.

Ya, I think something like 90% of the population of Canada lives within 100 miles of the US border.

If there was global warming, would they start moving farther north?

Watch Lou Dobbs this Tuesday on CNN - he has a NASA guy who is being "shut up" by NASA officials and the Bush administration over research on GW. Not saying I agree that it is happening or we caused it, but who the HELL is Bush to censor scientific reseach. Oh that's right, he's the guy who LIED about air quality at Ground Zero. I understand Bush has problems with borders and ideas, in fact, he takes idea blockers from General Nutrition ( like fat blockers) so his little brain will not be overcome. ( apparently, his fire-wall skull is not enough:D )

But as a taxpayer, I paid for that research, and that little POS has NO right to deny me access.

I'm not afraind of the turuth..why is King George?

Tom, I agree, we paid for the damn research, I want it published.

It does appear that King George is a Luddite. However, there is a strong, perhaps too strong, propensity in this country to make science the end-all and be-all. That's very dangerous on any number of levels.

As much as it pains me to say it, I want some one, and if it's King George, so be it, to slow down the race to easy and quick solutions that are purely scientifically based. Polciy decissions can not be just a knee jerk reaction to the latest scientific Clinton-esque finger in the wind.

When it comes to too much knowledge, we have an antidote - King George. :D

What gets me, is this rotten POS fails to realize he REPRESENTS us, not RULES us - WE have the RIGHT to ALL scientific research and WE have the right to decide. I do NOT need a slap-happy recovering alcoholic to decide what I need to know and what I don't.

And I have not changed my opinion on GW.....but I do not accept is as fact forever. like KG would love us do.

And is "Luddite" like a lunkhead? :confused:

Well, I saw it in TV tonight, "60 Minutes" specifically, that global warming is real, it's going to kill off the polar bear. Steve Croft did a wonderful job.

Bottom line: no need to rebuild NO.

Why should I have to go search the net for research I already paid for?
I WILL get some of it Tuesday on Lou Dobbs - the guy is risking a lot by doing this. Why do you find it so hard to hold Bush to a realistic standard?

Why is it no issue with you that this guy is being pesonally harrassed and threated by the administration to silence him?
What is Bush afraid of? What is he hiding?

I said I still did not believe GW was a threat, but I am entitled to the truth - Bush workd for me and I don't thnk he has ANY right to block this research.

Remeber, he lied about air quality reports in NYC at Grodn Zero - how can I trust a proven liar to censor my information?

I am thinkg where are the WMD and then I have to ask - do I trust this guy on anything? His truth always has to be filtered for him.

My point is if there were no WMD were we lied to?
If they were there and were moved, then doesn't it follow that the immeidate danger still exists? Are they WMD in Syria waiting to be delivered to terrorists? What happened to no safe harbor for terroists?
I guess you are satisfied to say - hey, we were wrong! and let if drop?
I'm not.
Look at the big picture - there is a very small man in the center.

Lefty

We will disagree that GW is a small man. If he is, then he's a giant compared to the Clintons and Carters of the world. There were WMD's and if they're in Syria dont'cha think that situation is being closely monitered? I'm willing to give the man who has freed two countries and has already stopped more terrorism in this country, the benefit of the doubt.
