Re: An Inconvenient Truth
I don't have a problem with trying to live in a way that doesn't **** up the planet.. that's just common sense.
However, these climatological geniuses are the same assholes who can't tell you with a 20% degree of certainty if it is going to rain at your trackday next Wednesday. So how, all of a sudden, are they able to discern temperature differentials to the 10th of a degree from records from a century ago, and predict doom with such absolute certitude?
I'll tell you what's missing from this discussion.. words like "we think, good likelihood, possible trend, we could be wrong, but the consequences are dire if we're right," etc.
This unreasonable certainty, this blind, unquestioning, partisan-line faith by those spokespeople who stand to gain by getting government grants and political power sets off my bullshit alarm. If they were Republicans, they'd set yours off-- admit it.
There may well be a problem, but if there is, a person of Al Gore's low reputation ought to get out of the way and let honest people without an agenda lead the public discourse. I notice he wasn't very persuasive as Vice President at getting people from his own party to support the Kyoto accord.
