“May be so but that is a side-track to the question.
No matter how much Conservatives and Libertarians rail against "government spending" it is really disingenuous They are fine with spending as long as it is for guns - the more the better - and for protecting monied interests through tax policies that favor them only.”
“So you are a CE. That means you're intelligent and know about applied science, probably quite a bit. It also means you are smart enough to know that knowledge is a moving target and that what is "true" today may not be tomorrow. Being a CE does not mean you are a scientist, much less a Climate Scientist - any more than I am though. And I am not questioning your sincerity of belief or that you're motives are onerous, but you are a CE. Isn't it possible that the thoughts and beliefs you have are colored by how you make a living?
Also, we all get told to do what we don't we want to do. I'm not specifically interested in doing that myself. But I am willing to at least not take options off the table.
Finally, that's Mr. Homer to you. :)
“AL Gore hasn't "railed" against Big Oil. And get the board out of your own eye.
Bringing up Rupert is perfectly reasonable since his station and his paid talking heads are the ones badmouthing Al Gore. He and they have not one ounce of accountability or integrity.
The U.S. imports app. 200,000 barrels a month from QATAR. According to your faulty reasoning that makes us all "Anti-American".

“You have so many faulty syllogisms that it's hard to know where to start. Qatar is one of the world's large producers and exporters of oil, regardless of to whom. You did notice, didn't you, that Algore is against the burning of fossil fuels? Of course, that's for everyone else - just not him. And as far as Fox News, there are a whole lot of other people who consider him the world's largest hypocrite. From him oversized homes to his boats to his jets to now this, the guy is just a hypocrite on steroids. His carbon footprint would be the envy of Bigfoot. ”
“1. We are all "political".2. My sense of humor or lack of it is not what this story is about3. I am disgusted - not terrified - by FOX. When I watch FOX it is nothing more than a half fact or fact-free opinion fest 23/7. I'll give them 1 hour out of a day.”

“Not buying it - the left is terrified of Fox and non main stream media outlets.
Who is it by the way that DOES NOT edit tapes and actually reported on Benghazi. HMMMMM”
“The arrogance is on the part of non-scientists dismissing decades of research - like you. ”

“I'm a chemical engineer, Homer,and I am not dismissing the data. I'm telling you that the problem is not oil, it IS the number of people using oil! As a chemical engineer I am telling you that other forms of energy based upon solar, wind and water power WILL NOT sustain the population of humans that currently exists and definatley not the population that will exist in the next 20 years, given current population growth. Not unless you and all your friends and family are content living like the Amish! You gonna give up your car and your cell phone your lights and hot water or your no seasonal food at the grocery? No! You just want to tell someone else that they have to! Carbon taxes are going to do what precisely?”
“Nope. The deal was not effective until 01/02/2013
Another fail on your part. The first is trying to claim by inference that the government of QATAR bought Current TV, not AL Jazeera.
Rupert owns 20% of Rotan, a Saudi controlled ANTI-AMERICAN station. It is just as illogical to say Rupert is a sellout to Big Oil as it is to say it about Al Gore.
I await a lucid response.”
BillCPA on Jan 12, 2013 at 17:34:30
“Why in the world would you want to bring up Murdoch? He hasn't railed against Big Oil like Algore has. And do you not understand that Qatar OWNS AlJazeera?
Please. A little intellectual integrity here, please.
And you never addressed the issue of what a total hypocrite Algore is. ”
“And that dismisses Mr. All-American, former Australian, Mr Murdoch from responsibility for owning 20% of a Saudi run TV network spewing out their anti-Semitic and anti-American tripe?
Big difference alright
At least Al Gore was born here.”
edog48 on Jan 14, 2013 at 09:42:07
“You are right Gore was born here not Australia like Murdoch. Plus Gore as the VP and almost Prez, plus he is mr global warming. So he should know better than to sell his firm to a oil producing, carbon emittting, anti-American, pro terrorist group.
BTW, if Murdoch is a foreign born media owner how is he All-American.”
“Yes. I gather you have no problem with a perpetual War economy that supplies 80% of the World's arms. I mean, we really must keep all of the gun and ammunition and weapons manufacturers happy - at taxpayer expense of course. Right?”

“Your argument goes back to the Central Bank. They own the MIC, Wall St. and Washington D.C. If you want to attempt to fix it, we have to start with removing the privately owned, foriegn held, central bank and their fiat paper currency they manipulate.”
“Volcanoes account for 1% of current CO2 emissions over the last 150 years.
The conspiracy is to ignore/deny/obfuscate as long as possible to maximize profit from fossil fuel sales as long as possible by passing on the costs to Society as a whole through.
And last I checked Conservative Corporations control 80% of the radio market. In addition Corporate control of TV means we get bombarded with false equivalency concerning the 2 sides of most issues. And it is almost always the Conservative Extreme doing it.
When 75% of the Country believes there is AGW and still nothing gets done, much less discussed, without the scientists being brow beat into silence by repeated ad hominem attacks there is something wrong.
“That is just untrue. It was one darn story. ONE! And it was not the "same group". This has been repeatedly explained, discussed, pointed out, and debunked. And still all of you AGW Deniers bring it up as an excuse to ignore ALL evidence saying different.
