Alright Joplin Globe, I've had about enough of the kool-aide drinking Gene Lyons and his supposed educated insights into what's right with the Democrats and what's wrong with everyone else. His latest tyrade is about how the peers of Michael Mann concluded that he hadn't manufactured global warming. i don't care anymore about whether he manufactured the global warming evidence than the Democrats care that Bill Clinton lied under oath. The guy is still wrong. There is nothing scientific about man made global warming (or climate change as they now like to call it since people were apparently catching on to the ruse). Just because a so called majority buy into it doesn't make it science. If that's the case then I guess the earth is still flat and the earth is still the center of the universe. If we are so interested in fixing this so called man made global warming please tell me at what point in history did it start? There used to be glaciers as far south as Kansas City or so. Do we want to put the northern half of the United State and all of Canada back in the deep freeze? Most if not all of the deserts of the world used to be under water. Do we turn them back into giant resevoirs? It would certainly settle our water issues if we could.
Why don't you guys just finally fess up to the fact that the climate does change from time to time; naturally. Sometimes it warms and sometimes it cools. Just because we have what we have today in the way of climate doesn't mean it will forever be this way and there's not a blasted thing you can do about. There is absolutely no reason to completely devastate our economy to save the world. It doesn't need saving. That doesn't mean going green isn't a good thing but do it because its a good thing to move toward not because the sky is falling.
