Is it just me?

Or is this really about as arrogant as can be:

Step 2 Temperature Choice
Choose the temperature at which you would like to stabilize the earth. Acknowledge the implications of your choice.

As we increase CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere, the temperature rises. By halting or reversing the rate at which we emit CO2 to the atmosphere we are in effect choosing the CO2 concentration that the atmosphere will eventually stabilize at. This concentration determines the temperature that the world will stabilize at. The idea is that once you have an understanding of the relationship between CO2 and temperature (with all of its uncertainties) you can make a choice of what temperature you would like to live at, and what effects that has on the environment.

Was the thermostat broke this year? Honestly. I don't know whether to laugh or puke.


Ya gotta luv it

From the Jed Report

Still, the timing of of their release -- coming immediately on the heels of the public humiliation of Geraldine Ferraro, a FOX News contributor -- does raise questions. These videos were made months and years ago. Why are they now an issue if they weren't before?

Well duh.......

I suppose videos of a bank robbery made months and years ago would be of no importance?

How stupid does the writer think we are?? It is the CONTENT that matters!

The videos should have been released earlier. That they weren't speaks to the timidity of the media. And yes, the attacks on Ferraro got paid back.

Sometimes in this life people get what they deserve.

As I write the market has

dipped to around 350 but has now recovered to only 16 down. Where it will go is any one's guess, but my hope is that the Fed's actions have established a bottom that will hold.

Numerous blogs and political pundits are speculating on what a worsening economy will do in the election. Most have, almost automatically, decided that it will help Hillary in both the primaries and then either Hillary or Hussein in the GE come November. This may well be true as conventional wisdom is that a poor economy always hurts the incumbent party.

However, that may not be true this time around. The Demos are promising tax increases and the Repubs can show how Bush's tax cuts gave us a sustained boom. The Repubs, and here they must be smarter than I give them credit for, can also point out that tax increases targeted towards energy use to stop so called man made Global Warming would be a huge drag on the economy.

In fact, they can even use Bill Clinton as their spokesman.

Former President Bill Clinton was in Denver, Colorado, stumping for his wife yesterday.

In a long, and interesting speech, he characterized what the U.S. and other industrialized nations need to do to combat global warming this way: "We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions 'cause we have to save the planet for our grandchildren."
