    Didn't Santorum propose that we burn gays for energy? I could be wrong about that.

    But if gays cause global warming, and global warming isn't real, does that mean gay marriage is a scientific hoax?
    Silly. Everybody knows Global Warming is a Russian plot to corrupt our precious bodily fluids, in tandem with "fluoridation."

    Honestly with all the evidence out there of Fraud by the pro global warming scientists that has now been exposed, how can anyone with a brain bigger than the size of a peanut believe in this obvious scam anymore?

    Cripes Liberals how about some critical thinking for a change.

    And what if the power plants were nuclear, wind, solar, hydro, and geo-thermal? Then you wouldn't be giving your money to Saudi Arabia, who fund terrorism and support militant Imams who are advocate that you (and every other American) be exterminated. And you'd be living in a cleaner environment in a country that owes nothing to any foreign government. I really dislike the idea of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan carrying American balls around in their purse, don't you?

    And I agree that some critical thinking is in order. Please consider the following that resulted in critical thinking of invalid claims of fraud.

    Climatic Research Unit email controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Eight committees investigated the allegations and published reports, finding no evidence of fraud or scientific misconduct.[14] The Muir Russell report stated, however, "We do find that there has been a consistent pattern of failing to display the proper degree of openness, both on the part of CRU scientists and on the part of the UEA."[15][16] The scientific consensus that global warming is occurring as a result of human activity remained unchanged at the end of the investigations

    According to The Guardian, Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, vice-chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and science historian Naomi Oreskes make the case that the "attacks on climate science that were made ahead of the Copenhagen climate change summit were 'organised' to undermine efforts to tackle global warming and mirror the earlier tactics of the tobacco industry".[124] Noting the initial media circus that occurred when the story first broke, Oreskes and Erik Conway, in an article about the history of climate change denial, observed that in the aftermath of the "climategate" investigations, "the vindication of the climate scientists has received very little coverage at all. Vindication is not as sexy as accusation, and many people are still suspicious. After all, some of those emails, taken out of context, sounded damning. But what they show is that climate scientists are frustrated, because for two decades they have been under attack."[125]

    Bill Royce, head of the European practice on energy, environment and climate change at Burson-Marsteller, also observed what appeared to be an organised effort to discredit climate science. Royce described "climategate" as "a sustained and coordinated campaign" aimed at undermining the credibility of the science, and disproportionate reporting of the original story "widely amplified by climate deniers", with much less coverage of reports that had cleared the scientists.[126] Journalist Curtis Brainard of the Columbia Journalism Review criticised newspapers and magazines for failing to give prominent coverage to the findings of the review panels, and said that "readers need to understand that while there is plenty of room to improve the research and communications process, its fundamental tenets remain as solid as ever."[127] CNN media critic Howard Kurtz expressed similar sentiments.[128]

    The sarcasm in my post seems to have eluded you.

    Yeah, pretty much everybody is for nuclear. The problem is that in the short term it isn't really viable. We have a very limited capability to online new plants. It's very expensive and time consuming. The secretary of energy's plan is to push nuclear as fast as we can, planning to have the grid mostly switched over to nuclear within 50 years. But, we can't just keep burning fossil fuels for 50 years. The damage to the environment would be mind boggling, and it would most likely become too expensive to continue to use before we were ready with the nuclear, so we'd be double screwed. So, his proposal is to try to use efficiency improvements and alternative energy to bridge the gap. Sounds about right to me.

    I put you in the group of people who believe that the world is 5000 years old if you think the evidence we have from 200 years of temp reading and atmosphere readings mean we are causing global warming. We don't even have enough data now to determine if it is going to rain in 3 days.

    When people talk about global warming, they are so close to the item they can't identify it.

    Can you think of a single reason why anyone would take your uninformed opinion over the opinion of the massive scientific consensus? Other than brain damage?
