What about actual footage of glaciers melting and polar bears slowly sinking into the arctic??? What about the facts of rising temperatures over centuries that Gore made known on An Inconvenient Truth??? They mean nothing now?

Zoots, she was being sarcastic.




I live in the North now, and I can tell you that the difference has been striking. The locals here tell me that the climate is not what it used to be. Take that for what it's worth.

And the term global warming, in my opinion, shouldn't be taken literally. The real issue is climate change and we're going to see more wild fluctuations in weather patterns as time goes on.

I'm going to approach this with an open mind like I try to do with everything so we'll just have to see. The trailer is not very impressive.

In case you haven't heard, Miami is in an EPIC DEEP FREEZE. It's about 65 degrees right now and I'm freezing my baguettes off!

The planet is on a warming trend in an icehouse world.

But the religiousity that accompanies the green movement is plain off-putting, energy consumption isn't an immortal sin and people shouldn't be guilt tripped over it. Especially when it is the middle class green conscious people who stick in a few CFL bulbs before flying off for a holiday while passing judgement on others.

I would love to see a world with far more energy use all over the place in 100 years time, but the means of energy production having less impact on the environment. That demands long term planning and investment and there are no sure bets at the moment.

I even used the word "epic," man.

I like polar bears enough.

What an excuse to post a photo of Knut...

Even without anthropogenic climate change, the economical and geopolitical consequences of fossil fuels should be enough to move away from the stuff as soon as possible.

There is a climate change going on, but we're not going to be dead in 10 years because of it if we don't donate our income to all of Al Gore's causes. I'm positive there's a middle ground in there somewhere.
