    Default Do Dems NEED global warming?

    it's almost like Democrats need global warming to continue as a vote harvesting mechanism...?

    Liberal funded
    environmentalists/activists are fighting dam projects in the West, have successfully killed the US Nuclear Power industry, and Ted Kennedy and Democrats shut down the plans for Cape Wind... the only response to Climate Change Democrats offer is blame Republicans increase gas taxes and put coal miners out of work...? kind of makes us wonder if it's actually a "Clear and Present Danger" national safety issue... if Ted Kennedy's view of Vineyard sound trumps clean energy.

    how would Democratic voter turnout be affected if Global Warming were solved tomorrow...?

    Kind of makes one wonder why the Dems are all about hurumphing and here-hereing in offical settings about climate achords and empty pledges of change... while killing of Green technologies that could be allieviateing the Warming Trend.

    The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.

    I see from the quotes the Der Noise is being consistant.

    Is it happening? I feel pretty confident in saying yes based on my observations over 30 years of commercial and private flying.
    Are we the cause? I'm not smart enough to make that call, so I'll rely on those that are and that DON'T have a vested interest in the status quo.
    As to the coal miners, well trains don't run on coal anymore. Homes don't use it for heat. I fly over coal country every week. Pretty quiet. I do see a lot of new wind and solar farms being built.
    I'd imagine the owners of the whaling ships felt the same way after oil was found in Pennsylvania. Did politicians from the whaling states lobby to stop the drilling? Was there an outcry for the unemployed whalers?

    interesting, but dont' the experts have a "vested interest" in their own funding? I wonder if there are any Scientific Studies done that explore how sensational headlines in the press and public hysteria affect public and private funding for related research?

    Vulcanologists like to tell of "Super eruptions, star gazers are warning about underfunding the search for earth crossing extinction level event asteroids... and climatetologists were at it in the 1970's warnign that the next great Ice Age was imminent...

    fact is chicken little scare tactics by "experts" translate into real $ amounts for their research budgets.

    interesting observation, aparently Texas is making more clean energy than all of New England at this point... case in point the lack of windmills on Vineyard sound.

    need to study up on Nuclear Power it seems... and Cape Wind and western Dam projects?... Billions of tons of Green House Gasses that would not be in the atmosphere, so sad.

    Daniel, you seem so desperate to have things the way you want to see them...

    Instead of avoiding the truth, why don't you face it and try to fix the problems?

    PS: You are not going to distract us from the nonsense in the White House.

    Got to admit that comment about the coal miners may have lost Hillary the election!

    So let's see if we have this straight...

    Global Warming is a HHHHHHHHHHHHuge big deal! major emergency! DANGER.... but no as dangerous as Nuclear waste 200 years from now... and not as dangerous as endangering some rare stickle backed minnow in a Western river and not as dangerous as having an obscured view of Vineyard sound or reducing the clean breezes for the Kennedy family yacht...

    just dangerous enough to throw thousands of little guys out of their jobs in Red states...


    OK i'm getting the picture... finally

    Digging holes for fence posts with my son the other day in our old neighborhood, the hole nearest to a neighbour's vintage shed turned up a lump of something. "What's that?" the lad asked.

    Coal. Must have fallen on the ground many decades ago, when that home had been heated with it.

    The lad had quite literally never seen a lump before, outside of a museum display or tiny lumps already burning in a reenactor's forge.

    Coal ain't coming back.

    He's got a valid point on Ted Kennedy & the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound. But the former is dead & the latter is made up of coal execs.

    However, they'll all end up with a view of butts aimed skyward from sticking their heads in the sand.

    The future is undeniable. Coal is dead. Energy derived from new technologies is unavoidable. The only issue is how long our inaction can delay the inevitable before we are forced to accept it with less grace and preparation.

    Making this about elections and such is nothing more than misdirection. It is yet one more distraction that accomplishes nothing.

    The reds must be the ones that feel that they need climate change. They sure are against doing anything to diminish it.
