    Chicken Little at it again…

    Interesting that the same folks so against a sane national health care system, are buying what corporate profiteers who threaten not just the very “lifetyle” they’re selling, but life forms. The threat to “humans” is down the road, but many species are already “roadkill”, and more are getting run over all the time. It ain’t just “climate”, but the entire interactions with all environments, land, sea, and air.


    And the folks P.T. Barnum played to, call those who DO know what’s happening, the “low informaton” populaton.

    The thermometer was invented in the 18th century, but those readings are considered unreliable today. By the 19th century, temperature readings were reliable, and people like the OCD Brits recorded temperatures daily (or hourly) all over their Empire.


    And all those temperatures are posted on-line.


    Anyone can download and look at those temperatures. And see that temperatures go up in the summer and down in the winter. The End (for any God-fearing person).


    Or, for those who align themselves with Satan, one can put those temperatures into Excel (although statistical packages would be better, but they’re expensive). One could take average temperatures for entire years, or average temperatures for a single day of the year (any day), and run a regression, which states that there is a 99.999% probability that the entire world has gotten warmer over the last 70 years (by less than 1 degree, but still warmer).


    But God hates math, data, and especially regression. So those who study their Bibles know there is NOTHING in the Bible about global warming, so it can’t possibly be happening.


    Except in the minds of those deceived by Satan into looking at data and doing statistical regressions.

    A wave comes in, and then goes out, a wave comes in, and then goes out. About every third wave come a little bit higher than any of the former ones. That’s what a rising tide looks like.

    It is perfectly easy to watch a dozen waves and not see anything happening. Most people walking on the beach can’t tell you if the tide is coming in or going out.

    Playing the odds is not “believing” anything, risking the future on the assurance that the world at large is wrong, THAT is blind faith in your own infallibility.
    AGW may possibly be a mistake. The analysis could be wrong. But being a skeptic, I don’t accept any side of this debate on faith. And for that reason, I think it better to play it safe, and accept the possibility of AGW, knowing that increasing efficiency, conserving resources, and encouraging renewable energy are all useful in themselves regardless of AGW, and save money in the long run.


    Why do some folks prefer blind, ideologically based faith, rather than a (to me) healthy skepticism about such things?

    after looking at all this stuff (news broadcasts, cartoonsde, etc.) I just wonder if all these manufactured crises(sp) are
    ring foisted on us to distract us from something that could
    REALLY be a crisis if we only knew about it instead of being
    fed fluff by our “leaders”.

    As in John Carpenter’s movie, “They Live”? Now, that’s something to re-watch for Halloween. It has a more realistic zombie theme, the walking brain-dead.

    @Clark Kent

    Nice joke. Now, can anyone answer me this one: why do many of the same people who complain loudly about how our federal government has handicapped our children and grandchildren with its economic largesse (which it has) don’t give a rat’s patootie about the air those same descendants breathe, the water they drink, and the possibility of significant breaks in the food chain?

    I would not say “Interesting that the same folks so against a sane national health care system, are buying what corporate profiteers who threaten not just the very “lifestyle” they’re selling, but life forms”.

    First energy companies are not insurance companies, second the federal government is now 48% of the insurance companies market now. So that means the insurance companies are in bed with gasp the democrats.
