    Mix anti-science and economic ignorance together and what you get is what you're describing.

    Good for Canada that it is developing its resources. Bad for the US that we have such vocal anti-science leftists who are blocking progress and working to increase the national security risk of the US.
    You know for someone who claims to be a libertarian, you certainly have more then a chip on your shoulder about liberals, and a raging hard on for far right conservative rhetoric.

    Good for Canada, yes, but I want it good for Canada and the United States as well. We'll both do a lot better in the long haul. We've worked together before and prospered as a result, and I see no real reason why this couldn't continue.

    Canada went through something like this in the mid-90's but although our Leftists naturally complained we also were lucky enough to have a couple of governments who saw the light and managed to turn it around. The same thing can happen in the States if the will is there.

    But if people insist on stopping pipelines because of an accident, or a dam because a worker was killed, or logging because of a birds nest, then we will see continued decline, and it will increase more rapidly once it really gets rolling and companies, as well as the best and brightest, start to flee.

    You never mentioned any six degree change in the world's temperature, either up or down. All you asked was "do you think global warming is going to improve the business climate?" and that's what I responded to.

    Why not get involved in the debate rather than submitting needless assessments of other posters. Have you anything of substance to say?

    which is why it was on Fox news, I guess.

    Not sure just who said they were grad students. It was in one of the links already posted. The point is, they aren't NASA scientists.

    i would hate to see that happen. i hope that we can innovate and avoid it. plus, it's possible that the technology is something we could export. easily producible energy would go a long way towards aiding peace globally. also new food technology to improve harvests, especially in places where crops don't grow very well.

    So, without checking, you swallowed it whole.

    No, I did check. Of course, it doesn't take a lot to convince me that NASA isn't really concerned about aliens attacking due to global warming, but there is more to the story on a link already posted here.

    Some important points of clarification

    So here’s the thing. This isn’t a “NASA report.” It’s not work funded by NASA, nor is it work supported by NASA in other ways. It was just a fun paper written by a few friends, one of whom happens to have a NASA affiliation.
    The story reads more like something we'd expect to see in "the Onion" or perhaps in a supermarket tabloid, so checking is redundant, but, as expected, the story is bogus.

    Now, tell us about how Fox News published it to convince the "gullible left."

    In fact you're the one who insists on quoting Fox News, an item I never saw.

    I quoted a story in the Guardian, a well known journal for committed Leftists, or those who should be committed. They seem to find the story credible so perhaps you should pass your 'grad' story along to them.
