    We're getting scammed a lot these days and it sucks. Hard. Most people can't see it.

    I think "scammed" is putting it nicely, but you are on the way. Think about these movements and where they end and what that means about our system and about our ability to change the government.

    Then think of the true alternative and who, scarily, may be in the right.

    btw, part of the opening scene in An Very Convenient Lie, oh sorry, and Inconvenient Truth, is taken from the movie "The Day After Tomorrow"

    Think about the roots of both.
    Go on, I'm listening.

    800/200 or 1000/100, either way, it is great that evidence-challenged shriekers are in such a minority.
    Totally agree, but I would add that the protestors are stupid for two reasons:

    1) They really have no idea what they're protesting.

    2) They are working for FREE for the energy and oil lobby. Think of how much money energy corps pay dissenting scientists to write phony op-eds while they jerks work for free. Well done, idiots.

    They are unwitting political operatives. Congrats morons!

    they protest crippling, job killing taxes on energy---both production and consumption---in the midst of our economic crisis

    hello

    they speak for themselves, per first amendment

    (it should be surprising such obvious realities require explanation)

    "Organizers allowed the media to cover only the first few minutes of Gore's presentation. "
