    It warms. It cools. The part that is the hoax is where we are responsible for it. You know it might just be the sun...

    Is your religion so dear that you willingly throw away your birthright to support it? When the Soviet Union collapsed (thank you Mr. Reagan) the Environmental movement became the new home of the reds.

    Don't confuse pollution with man-caused global warming. We have created a very clean environment. Rich nations do that. One has nothing to do with the other.

    And no, I am not going to post any links to places that most of you would dismiss anyway. We have played that game to no effect many times over the years. You are free to believe that you are destroying the Earth. Me? I just laugh at the very idea.

    The environmental movement gives statists (yes, liberals, socialists, communists, Marxists...) their best chance at domination. They already have you. See? That was easy.
    I thought statists were like conservatives, against change, and that conservatives don't like progressives, which you didn'tinclude in your little list...

    Yes. At last you have it. When we are free we all can do what we believe is in our best interest. I can try to use as much energy as Algore. I can use what I can pay for. And you get to make decisions that reflect what is important to you.

    Isn't it wonderful to realize that you can be free without the need to enslave me and others?

    You know they measure the sun's output right? It has been at a solar minimum for most of the warming period. So that rules that out. What else you got?

    CFL indoor floodlights. This last batch was from Home Depot. I will put them in tomorrow. Six bulbs. Approximately 50 bucks.
