    We’re going to host an An Inconvenient Truth viewing for the local 4-H group on the 17th. The group, of which my kids are members, has as its focus working to better the environment. The viewing is a perfect fit for an activity.

    I’m curious to hear how you feel about these two sites:
    thechr...3.html
    epw.se...266711

    The topic of global warming being both real and human caused has been discussed quite a bit on a homeschool loop I’m on. The conservatives seem to feel global warming is all a bunch of media generated garbage. I have been lazy and not done any of the heavy lifting on the topc, outside of the environmental science class I had as a science major in college 13 years ago. Been a little busy lately, so that is my excuse.

    Curious about your take on it.

    Inhofe is a total moron. His losing the chairmanship of the environment committee was reason enough to root for the Dems to take control. The consensus was there 5 years ago. The media is just now starting to move away from he said/she said reporting to reporting what the scientific community has concluded.

    If anything, the skeptics are given more press than they deserve, not less.

    As for the crucified Santa, global warming is caused by CO2 (and some other gases). Yeah, consumption generates CO2, but I’m not sure it’s the commercialized Christmas. It’s AC set at 68 ‘F and cars that get 15 miles per gallon.

    //cars that get 15 miles per gallon//

    Good, than my truck that gets 14 mpg isn’t part of the problem 🙂

    Waste of natural resources and excess burning of fossil fuels brings to mind… Raleigh’s natural gas company, PSNC, has a new rate structure: use MORE natural gas and you are billed at a LOWER rate year-round. This is not exactly an environmentalist’s dream policy, is it. Gues which rate my family is stuck with? (correct, the higher one)

    great movie, An Inconvenient Truth!, and very scary…

    I’m glad you’re a scientist and a realist and not inclined to believe everything you read, hear, or see. I’m interested in what you think of this movie, especially after you’ve researched its claims.
