    That's true too.

    My question is what did this march accomplish, or what was it supposed to accomplish?

    If tehre no more global warming now because of this march?

    That is not my contention, and has not been my contention.

    Ultimately politicians respond to numbers. Getting several hundred thousand to march for a cause in today's apathetic and cynical political atmosphere is very hard to do and suggests a growing sentiment that politicians must act on climate change or suffer at the polls.

    This is how it's always been done in America. Change requires noisemaking and lots of people making their feelings known publicly.

    Act how?

    Are they going to call Mother Nature to testify in front of Congress?

    I think you are missing the most important thing about the climate change agenda. That is, that Man is the only cause, and because of that, the West has to transfer more wealth than at any other time in human history to stop it.

    I've merely been presenting data related to other historical causes of CO2 release, and questioned the impact.

    There is a clear record of atmospheric CO2 concentrations that show industrialization has caused it to rise.

    If you want to discuss the impact of atmospheric CO2 concentrations, you'll have to show an increase in them. "There were forest fires" is not enough. Not even close

    Maybe. Guys like Issa are so illiterate they would probably fall for a woman dressed up that way.

    But how about just getting some climate scientists? Anyway, we already know the science. Conservatives are just pretending. The real issue is willingness to vote the trogs out. If the American people are galvanized by this issue, it'll more dark days for the demographically challenged GOP>

    If I'm not mistaken fire was around before Man, and lighting wasn't invented by Ben Franklin.
