Thank goodness there aren't too many people like sf2k in positions of real power, lest they go crazy in their quest to save Mother Gaia.

So...what was the carbon footprint of the airplane that brought them over to Japan?

Is the climate system not very complex? I find it amusing that people say A causes Z (Z being climate change), when there are variables B thru Y that could possibly affect changes in the climate. How old are human beings? How old is this earth? Suddenly, global cooling (in the 70s), or global warming (up until recently), or climate change (the proper term now) is solely because of variable A (humans)?

Finally, to quote Michael Crichton, "Nobody believes a weather prediction twelve hours ahead. Now we're asked to believe a prediction that goes out 100 years into the future? And make financial investments based on that prediction? Has everybody lost their minds?"

How many times has oil supposedly been on the brink of exhaustion? Many times now, and yet, we still have oil. How much oil reserves do we have that we can't touch in the United States? Nobody really knows cause we can't touch it. Doesn't Canada have more oil reserves than Saudi Arabia? As far as I know, we haven't touched that yet... Not saying that oil is an unlimited resource and we shouldn't be turning to other sources for our automobiles and stuff, but I wish people would stop scaring people with Peak Oil nonsense.

So what is Energy Source B, Mr. GJDailleult? Wind? Solar? Nuclear? Geo-thermal? All are fine and dandy, but how much would be needed to fully power the United States? China?

Climate change may or may not be man-made, and I'm all for yuppies who want to save the earth by buying those special lightbulbs, drive the Chevy Volt (buy American!), paint their roofs ugly white, buy clothing made out of hemp, build houses out of bamboo, reduce, reuse, and recycle and all that good stuff. Those people probably won't care about Climategate (what a stupid name).

But then, a lot of this data (that these scientists were working on) will be used to by nations as a basis to push their carbon reduction schemes. And some of the things in these emails and the data itself should definitely raise some questions.

How can anybody who is supports SCIENCE even defend these guys? These guys were talking about blackballing certain science journals, deleting vital information, circumventing certain laws, basically denying skeptics.

Isn't science defined by skeptics?

Good, then we can expect prosperity sometime soon.

Well, the Republicans controlled Congress at that time, so...

How dare these people! They must be getting paid off by special interests!! Wind energy is a poor energy substitute anyways. If Japan is so hell bent on going "green" there are better alternatives.

and to clarify Nancy Pelosi's second quote, she was referring to an old lady who had a swatstika being crossed out (so she was likening Obama to Nazis, no less kooky), so that should not be read as, "Oh no! Neo-Nazis are showing up!"

@Taka313 were you calling people who likened Bush and his cronies to Hitler and the Nazis or calls for an assassination of Bush kooks too? They're all extremes used to get attention. It's not like debates on the war were civil by the left either, and it's all perfectly constitutional.

The two perfect quotes for all the crap that the Democrats are pulling...

"I say to the president, Mr. President, if you think that our troops in Iraq are there to fight for democracy, do not destroy it at home by cutting off our freedom of speech. . . . "So I thank all of you who have spoken out for your courage, your point of view. All of it. Your advocacy is very American and very important. . . . There's nothing more articulate, or more eloquent, to a member of Congress than the voice of his or her own constituent. . . . I'm a fan of disruptors,"--Nancy Pelosi in 2006

"I think they're AstroTurf. You be the judge. They're carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care."--Nancy Pelosi in 2009 (when asked about Health Care protests)

What a turnabout!

@sf2k Why do we need to live like we're in 1983? We're already half way through 2009, sacrificing human progress and human advancement for silly notions (or romantic dreams) is kind of...

And there are many factors that go into why so many people are starving, blaming it on meat eaters (and subsequently, thinking that if the world went vegetarian it'd be okay) is very naive.

So now going vegetarianism is going to save the earth from its impending doom? I do believe PETA might have found an effective message, because so many people are hooked up to this "Save the Earth, Go Green" marketing crap that they MIGHT actually believe PETA's ridiculous claim.

...or maybe not...doesn't look like many people are paying attention to these three ladies.

Both the LDP and DPJ seem to have no idea on how to help out Japan's economy...instead of increasing taxes (and sales tax at that...), why don't they try to cut down on spending?
