Comments: Quote of the Day

If by "warmies" you mean your FB friends who are down for Gaia, nature and cute furry creatures then I'll agree with you but Delingpole called out "a tiny handful of individuals" who manipulated global climate record statistics. Our friends, FB and otherwise, who have chosen to place their complete and Absolute faith in those manipulated statistics, are mere foot soldiers in the movement. (Or, to the extent they advocate theft from their neighbor in the name of this "hoax", they are budding National Socialists.)

Agreed with JG's emphasis on the "tiny handful" b/c they are profiting from this, as well as being part of the Big Lie.

To add to enumeration, I just found this bit in my records when attempting edification to one of my (very smart, and well meaning) friends who'd become a useful idiot: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/22/world/africa/in-scramble-for-land-oxfam-says-ugandans-were-pushed-out.html?_r=4&ref=world&
Oxfam report of poor farmers thrown off their land - with violence, in many cases - so friends of Gore can get carbon credits.

Dr. Mann lied. People died.

That's my flippant way to admit you're right. The few who corrupted data had mens rea.

My reflexive rejection is directed at Senator Inhofe (HOAX OK) who provides a too plump target for the Jon Stewart crowd by calling the whole thing a hoax.

Not the whole thing, just the whole "man caused" thing. Speaking of Stewart, have you heard he's being considered to replace Brian Williams?
