And it is gratifying to see:
Al Gore’s side may be coming to power in Washington, but they appear to be losing the battle on the idea that humans are to blame for global warming.

Forty-four percent (44%) of U.S. voters now say long-term planetary trends are the cause of global warming, compared to 41% who blame it on human activity.
Rasmussen reports that the trend of the past has begun to reverse itself.
In July 2006, 46% of voters said global warming is caused primarily by human activities, while 35% said it is due to long-term planetary trends.

In April of last year, 47% of Americans blamed human activity versus 34% who viewed long-term planetary trends as the culprit. But the numbers have been moving in the direction of planetary trends since then.
Knowledge and facts are usually fatal to hype and hyperbole. Climate is something which is hard to fake. Either what is predicted comes true or it doesn't. All of the doom-and-gloom predictions of the last few years have fallen flat. And we continue to see the other side, the "deniers", getting more and more of the attention where once, coverage was almost exclusively given to those whose credibility is rapidly declining.

But that doesn't mean the fight to stop this travesty from taking root in a way which will economically crippling is over. The politicians, always the last to learn, are still in the 41% column, and as the Rasmussen report notes, they're the ones coming to power.

The global warming crowd will go down screaming and yelling as they shift to a global cooling mantra.

I wish this same facts vs. predictions applied to the attempts at collectivism throughout history. That seems to be one area they never learn.

Then there is this from Megan Mcardle who is still on the AGW bandwagon:
While George Bush was in office, progressives (or so I mote) deluded themselves that the problem was one of evil leadership that didn’t care about the environment. Now that Barack Obama is coming in, that belief has become insupportable. Either Barack Obama, too, is evil and doesn’t care . . . or it is not politically possible for any American leader to take serious action on global warming.

There was a movie on TV yesterday, Day after Tomorrow, I think. Its about a mankind induced about climate change (although here it was a fatal cold wave that froze flesh instantly and not global warming).

At one point a group is hold up in a library. When the real deadly part of the storm begins to approach, they start tossing books on the fire without pause or consideration.

I have to feel that at some point, a clever & subversive writer slipped that in. Not only does burning books conjure up images of Nazi demand of obedience to certain lines of thought, but also serves as a symbol of throwing away centuries of thought and reason in a panic to defend against this coming storm.


Anyway don’t be surprised if its Al Gore, Car Czar. Oy vay.

I never heard this before ..
The French have been reprocessing nuclear fuel since the 1970s — about the time we gave it up. The French now recycle all the spent fuel from their 65 reactors — which provides them with 75 percent of their electricity. They do it so well they are also recycling for other countries. They are even buying enriched uranium from old Soviet weapons stocks, "blending it down" with uranium mine tailings (another "waste" product) and selling it to us as reactor fuel. Although few people seem to realize it, one out of every ten light bulbs in America is now powered by a former Soviet weapon.

The fearmongers will ride it for a little while longer and then they will make up a new big scare.

Mark my words.

AGW hysteria winding down, the war in Iraq won . . . just in time. Less chance for Obama to mess things up.

Do we have time to do a similar thing with carbon emissions to save ourselves from climate change?

Not a hope in hell. Most of the "green" stuff is verging on a gigantic scam. Carbon trading, with its huge government subsidies, is just what finance and industry wanted. It’s not going to do a damn thing about climate change, but it’ll make a lot of money for a lot of people and postpone the moment of reckoning. I am not against renewable energy, but to spoil all the decent countryside in the UK with wind farms is driving me mad. It’s absolutely unnecessary, and it takes 2500 square kilometres to produce a gigawatt - that’s an awful lot of countryside.

In a letter to Kennedy earlier this month, Singer accused Kennedy of using his “political connections” to take control of the [wind] project.

“If you are honestly committed to helping communities such as ours, please stop interfering with the Cameron Chapter so that we can move forward with the development of our Navajo Wind Project,” Singer wrote. “Instead, we suggest you support wind development elsewhere, including the Cape Wind Project in Massachusetts.
Ouch !!
