    I agree with you 100%

    I think the republicans are mad because Obama started dancing with THEIR girlfriend. (who is probably a gay 18 year old guy the way the republicans have been doing with sex scandels as of late )

    fair enough

    thanks, barry!

    obama's totally incompetent

    he is SEEN as just making this stuff up

    where the heck did THIS ONE come from

    where the heck was it LAST WEDNESDAY

    you can't just PRESIDE by the seat of your improvisational pants

    he's far flippier than carter, MISTER vacillation

    on another level, he GAVE this away for nothing

    did he consult his congress, what will ms nancy say

    cuz he aint gonna get a cent of cap nor trade

    it's like boehner is putin and oil is sdi in poland

    the piefaced prez gives away gratis

    it's one of his better moves, i guess

    it's certainly gonna lead to some excellent, excellent JOBS

    but that's not WHY he's doing it, and his manipulativeness is transparent

    his health care's not transparent, but his maneuvering is

    he's a rank amateur, has no idea how to lead

    where's the consistency, where's the vision, where's the steady hand

    the questions elicit LOL's

    sorry

    This is confusing at best, and makes me wonder what is really going on or is this a misdirection play to once again try to draw attention away from the PHONY Health Plan and all the taxes coming from it.

    Curious, I can't wait to see what he comes up with next, it's a month away from April Fools day.

    This is nothing more than a fake. It doesn't require any consideration. It won't produce domestic oil.

Although 2008 was the coolest year of the decade, due to strong cooling of the tropical Pacific Ocean, 2009 saw a return to near-record global temperatures, according to the GISS analysis. The past year was only a fraction of a degree cooler than 2005, the warmest year on record, and tied with a cluster of other years 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007 1998 and 2007 as the second warmest year since recordkeeping began.


    I liked republicans much better when they cared about the environment.
    Excellent starting point, thanks for adding the reference where the data came from, which is "according to the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) analysis of surface air temperature measurements."

    GHCN adjusts the raw climate data to remove what it calls "inhomogeneities." One of the things that ClimateGate revealed is a fact that, until all of the station "adjustments" are examined, adjustments of CRU, GHCN, and GISS cannot be trusted if using homogenized numbers.

    So, the most important question I have for you is this: which data was used in the report for calendar year 2009, suggesting it was "tied for the second warmest year in the modern record?" I have a feeling you were using Junk Science, and the report is therefore bogus.

    Stupak may have once said he was a conservative democrat, however, after voting for taxpayer funded abortions based on a flimsy executive order, I'd say he more than lost the conservative title to his democrat voting record.
    There is no federal funding of abortions in the Health Care law.

    The greenhouse effect is not junk science. It is proven science. Elevated levels of CO2 in the atmosphere, much of it from burning fossil fuels, is starting to change our climate. Al Gore didn't invent it.

    That doesn't answer my question. Which data was used in the report for calendar year 2009, suggesting it was "tied for the second warmest year in the modern record? Was it the raw data or the "adjusted" data?

    edit to add: by "adjusted," I mean homogenized.

    Do you favor Cap and Trade? From what I can tell, it's just Obama's way of getting Republicans on board so that he can claim it as a bi-partisan "victory" and possibly save some Democrats their seats in the next two elections.

    Not at all. Republicans are mad because they can see the manipulation being used.

    I applaud your youthful innocence. Really I do. Based on your posts I've read on this site, you are probably a really nice honest decent young man.

    There is a much larger picture here than the US becoming energy independent. We can't do that, and we won't do that. Geopolitical pressures for us to buy oil from other countries will keep us dependent. I wish it were as simple, and that our politicians really wanted us to drill our own oil and disengage ourselves from the world, but it's not going to happen any time in the near future.
