as for "the costs" of global warming -- well, if you'd like to SCUBA dive Venice, please, continue to pretend there's no problem.
At the risk of "driving you crazy." What is the "natural state" of North America? As it is today, or say, blanketed by sheets of ice as it was 70,000 to 10,000 years ago?
Which is better for humans?
More importantly, which is better for Polar bears?

Well whenever anyone states either one of those, come talk to me.

Until then all I see are some folks speaking out of context and little to no facts.

But Global Warming is NOT a partisan issue. It is a damn shame that people keep trying to make it be. Fine, whatever if you don't want to believe Gore b/c you don't trust democrats...but you can't deny what the latest journals have been saying about this. I do not remember anywhere in his movie him talking about how great democrats are. All his data was backed up by scholarly research.

I didn't post this to debate global warming. Jesus will fix it. I just wanted to point out that Gore is a fraud.

George Bush won't even see the movie (that's what he said if I recall correctly), what do y'all think of that?

I haven't seen it yet, only because I haven't gotten around to renting it. GWB doesn't exactly have to go to Blockbuster.

Just out of curiosity, and I realize that you are most likely being funny (I hope ) but how exactly is Jesus Christ supposed to fix global warming?

Well, it's not a book so there's no excuse there...

And as a warning to those who have not seen it, be prepared to be depressed....

Jesus will fix global warming? How?

If Gore is a fraud well then so are numerous scientists.

Then I guess the world should come to hault since Jesus will fix things. working on an AIDS cure? forget it, Jesus is on that. Situation in Iraq? Jesus? Goodbye progress.

What the hell is the point of doing anything? Jesus will cure us of disease, feed all of the hungry, give money to the poor, jobs to the unemployed, build roads in Africa, etc.

Everyone's off the hook, folks!
