Ah man, I haven't hit NRO in ages. Here's an odd thought... maybe the earth's temperature just fluctuates?!

Mary

Sure does.

And -- brace yourself -- it flucuated before humans came along.

"Global warming is over. Get back to your lives, citizens."

You had better be careful or else I will sic Al Gore's army of GW fanatics on you & yours!


GORE'S REBELLION

EXCERPT:
For a while, it was a standard-issue Al Gore jeremiad, with calls for everything from installing solar panels in Darfur (seriously) to legal action against "the carbon lobby" for denying global warming (ditto).

BUT THEN MR. GORE REALLY GOT GOING AND TOLD HIS DISCIPLES TO HEAD -- LITERALLY -- TO THE BARRICADES TO "STOP" COAL.

Speaking last Wednesday on a celebrity panel in New York, the Nobel Prize Laureate proclaimed: "If you're a young person looking at the future of this planet and looking at what is being done right now, and not done, I BELIEVE WE HAVE REACHED THE STAGE WHERE ITS IS TIME FOR CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE to prevent the construction of new coal plants that do not have carbon capture and sequestration." He added, "clean coal does not exist."

Mr. Gore didn't explain how far he thinks his young acolytes should go in their rage against the coal-burning machines that provide about 50% of U.S. electricity. Sit-ins? Marches against power plants? How about trashing power lines: What could he mean by "civil disobedience"?
