...of former Vice President Algore acting like he is on the global warming bandwagon to save the planet. What a joke. He is harping on this to make money. It drives me crazy when these global warming scammers say ‘all these scientists models show man caused global warming due to burning fossil fuels.’

I can tell you why. These so-called (political) scientists will not get money/grants to produce models that show there is no man-caused global warming. I think even you liberals out there acknowledge the financial angle of these hucksters.

In one of Algore’s zealot speeches on geothermal power, he incorrectly states that just a few kilometers down (inside the earth) it was several million degrees. He is wrong and he is probably wrong about the rest of his global warming statements. The earth’s mantle is hot enough to melt rock, but not hotter than the surface of the sun that is around 6,000 degrees. Have you seen the You Tube videos of Algore and these other global warming hucksters that will not answer questions from the opposition?

Yes, man releases CO2 into the atmosphere. This CO2 already existed on planet Earth. It was just in a different form. In Japan and Hawaii (as well as other places not known to me) they have these tsunami warning systems. Every time there is an undersea earthquake these warning sirens alert citizens. Most of the time all that shows up is a wave a few inches high. The earthquake actually happened and citizens ran for the hills, but it didn’t cost us anything. If the global warming alarmists feel the urge to sound an alarm, that is fine, but don’t ask me to pay double or triple (skyrocket to quote the current President) my electric bill because that is going to keep the earth’s temperature from rising.

Virtually every country in the world is meeting at the global warming summit in Copenhagen. The whole purpose of this meeting is to allow third-world countries to extort money from developed countries like the U. S. It is proposed that we pay third world countries to not build coal and natural gas power plants and to not clear cut rainforests. So they are all there to see how much we are willing to pay them to stay an undeveloped country.

Why don’t they just agree to a worldwide ban on coal and gas fired power plants period. Only nuclear power plants can be built from now on. Coal and gas producers have plenty of these plants already built to sell their commodity. Better yet, since they believe they know what is causing global warming, why don’t they just reverse the process to make it cooler?
