    Wikipedia is your refutation? And a hit on Inhofe for taking "money from energy corporations?"

    I guess you also protest Algore pushing AGW and oh.. also being poised to make hundreds of millions off the regulations of Cap and Trade and the like. After all, isn't that what your upset about with Inhofe? That he stands to "gain" from his position monetarily?

    SERIOUSLY?

    You need a link for that?

    No, I'm not talking about a horror movie, but there is a link to the cinema. Around the time Al Gore was putting together that movie about the horrors of global warming titled "An Inconvenient Truth," he was also putting together a firm with a former Goldman-Sachs executive named David Blood. The firm, Generation Investment Management, recently bought a share of a company called Camco International Ltd., which trades in carbon credits.
    So if the U.S. Senate passes that cap-and-trade bill and President Obama signs it, Blood and Gore stand to make out just fine on their investments. The market in carbon credits is a very lucrative one.

    That was from a 2 second google, you are free to find more of your own. Gore has a firm that deals in CARBON CREDITS. FFS, are you saying you didn't know that Mr. Al"Global Warming"Gore, while pushing legislation to "save the environment" and making scary movies is also selling carbon credits?

    Re: UK climate scientist to temporarily step down

    [QUOTThus, the European Commission's most recent appropriation for climate research comes to nearly $3 billion, and that's not counting funds from the EU's member governments. In the U.S., the House intends to spend $1.3 billion on NASA's climate efforts, $400 million on NOAA's, and another $300 million for the National Science Foundation. The states also have a piece of the action, with California—apparently not feeling bankrupt enough—devoting $600 million to their own climate initiative. In Australia, alarmists have their own Department of Climate Change at their funding disposal.

    And all this is only a fraction of the $94 billion that HSBC Bank estimates has been spent globally this year on what it calls "green stimulus"—largely ethanol and other alternative energy schemes—of the kind from which Al Gore and his partners at Kleiner Perkins hope to profit handsomely.

    Supply, as we know, creates its own demand. So for every additional billion in government-funded grants (or the tens of millions supplied by foundations like the Pew Charitable Trusts), universities, research institutes, advocacy groups and their various spin-offs and dependents have emerged from the woodwork to receive them.[/QUOTE]

    Re: UK climate scientist to temporarily step down

    Fortune Magazine -- Four years ago David Blood retired as CEO of Goldman Sachs Asset Management. Having seen extreme poverty as a child in Brazil, where his father was an auto executive, Blood was looking for a second act that was about more than making money. He and Al Gore started Generation Investment Management with a lofty goal; "To encourage businesses around the world to be more responsible, ethical, and sustainable."

    how specifically would this company make a buck off cap and trade?

    i guess it's like cheney and halliburton benefitting off of the iraq lie/war.

    except global warming is not a lie according to the vast majority of climate scientists.

    let me ask you a question: why would you want to see the demise of groups who could come up with, sensible, logical and reasonable plans?
    And guess what? You won't find conservative groups fighting you about better gas mileage and recycling as long as it doesn't unnecessarily harm people economically. Managing the cutting of tree, sensibly, is okay. Allowing forest fires because you don't want thinning of forests or cutting fire breaks, is irresponsible.
