    Gee Wizz Thanks Al

    We're about to get another 16" of global warming

    If I could find Al Gore, I'd wrap my fingers around his fat neck and and....

    Anybody out there still believe this crap?

    Record cold so far this year
    Broke the record for snow fall last year
    Way over the normal snow fall this year.

    Too bad they didn't give more information. I'd like to know how far it can travel now that it's not anchored? Will it melt faster now? Is there anything to that theory of desalination of the oceans and the next ice age like shown in the movie " The Day After Tomorrow"?

    Takes centuries for this much ice to form and its melting and cracking.

    Vince thats the sort a stuff that bugs me. For me it's air conditioning. People want to force conservation on me but they want to cool there house for no other reason then comfort. Like I said I will only take a conservationist serious if they don't use A.C. I figure anybody useing A.C. has put there comfort way above the good of the planet. Deep down they know it and will make all excuses to keep using it.

    I've been talking about refinancing with two people at work. One guy got Wells Fargo to give him a new loan at a lower rate; and they paid all the costs (he is smart enough to know them paying the costs vs. no money down adding it to the principal). The other is very wary, because the city of Yonkers has a 1.8% mortgage recording tax. I can't refinance because I have almost no equity.

    during the 1600's it has beeen recorded in captain's log books that there was a mini ice age. "even the warmest skins could not keep a man warm."

    i don't mind the warming part. i've used alot less heating fuel this year.

    Obama promised change, I think the banks need to start lending some of their bailout money or give it back. If billions were directed towards the mass production of solar panels and the installions of those panels along with the manufacturing of windmills and their mass installations we would be reducing our carbon footprint, move towards energy independance and employ Americans in jobs that keep our dollars in our economy. Our legislators still don't get it, they are still putting "pork" into a stimulus bill meant to create jobs.

If a half dozen of the filthy rich moved into average size homes and closed their monstrosities up, it would do more good than if 50 of us maximized our efficiency.
    Al Gore is a dip. There is no denying or getting around that. He is a politician. I'm sure he has many ulterior motives for every word that comes out of his mouth, but even the worst of his kind can't be wrong about everything they say.

    Eh. It's about time we come up with a better way to power our cars, houses and economy than crude oil. If it's because of Gore, a desire to stop enriching the part of the world that wants to harm us or just to be on the forefront of the next wave of technology that kick-starts innovation and our economy I don't care. Oil is a dirty fuel, a dirty business and should be obsolete as soon as possible IM-liberal-O. That's where I stand on it for my own sensibilities, and any reason I can come up with to shore that up or the right wingers around here can come with to poo-poo it is cattle methane in the wind.

    I like the idea of cleaner air. I like the idea of less pollution. I like the idea of trying to make things better for our country and I like the idea of getting off the Saudi/Iranian/Venezuelan teet. If it makes Al Gore and his cronies rich in the mean time it is no worse than the current crop of power structure cronies protecting the old guard with every breath. Eff em all.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and I'll be shocked if I don't end up in the breeze by my lonesome.

    *Ahem* I am willing, right here and right now to admit that my feelings, what science I pick and choose to believe, the talking heads I choose to listen to and the ones I choose to demonize has little to do with any REAL expertise and everything to do with what fits my own politics. I may be mostly right, I may be mostly wrong, but I am for sure not 100% right or wrong about any of this crap.

    Making more fuel efficient vehicles helps all around. Using less gas will produce less emissions. Helping our wallets, and our environment. It's a win-win situation.

    What if the scientists studying the effects we're having on the environment are right?

    I want scientists to learn as much as possible, to help make our lives all the better. Think about how much science has given us so far (minus nuclear weapons )

    Is there any other scientific research that you would deny?


    I'm middle of the road politically with a lean towards liberal, but don't get me wrong, I drive my gas guzzling van and my wife drives the gas guzzling car, and we don't recycle. We're no tree huggers.

    ...but if they invent a work van thats as strong, big, and holds as much weight as your current van, but doubles the fuel efficiency and you can afford it, would you not buy it, because Al Gore brought the reason you should own it to the forefront? I'd buy it.
    Lenny, every time I hear the words "tree hugger" I think of the fires in California and how much damage might have been prevented if there were fire breaks, clearing of brush and trees that posed a hazard in the event of a wildfire removed beforehand. Whether it is saving trees , deer, alligators or something else proper thought should take place instead of emotions. I'd rather clear some trees than have my house burn down and I'd rather thin out some deer than have them starve to death.
