    It's a disaster, Kennedy is one of the leaders in the MMGW argument and we'll be throwing money into the air for nothing.

    Well it's good to be back to the MMGW debate :D

    There's plenty of scientists who realize it's hogwash but many of them are silenced. As I've said before, with so many people thinking it's a problem they should go ahead and drive less. Living in a small town I have a very small carbon footprint and I'll be damned if I want to pay an extra dollar or two for a gallon of gas for someone's little mind games.

    Not true. There's some issues I agree with Democrats on. Not many, though.

    But taxing instead of growing, killing babies and throwing money away at the altar of the false God of MMGW, I don't agree with.

    Yes, we know, there's a dozen or so scientists you can find that deny anything, especially the corporate ones with agendas.

    Um, no, but I am sure he will put the clampdown on the robber barons who have been raping, pillaging, and polluting our country nonstop for the last 8 years.

    And there's many, many more who are scared to come out of the closet on the issue for fear of being shunned. But we've been down that road before. I'm still waiting for someone to explain the vast changes in the earth's temperature before man even existed. Is that Non Man Man Made Global Warming ?

    That's the same nonsense right wing religious fanatics say about evolution. It's just silly.

    And you aren't waiting for anything to be explained to you, because it's not that complicated, you just don't like it because you think acknowledging it interferes with economic growth.

    Yes there are cyclical climate changes, but yes man also can have a dramatic affect on these climate changes. It's really not that complicated.

    Even if that is true - which I am not saying - I still don't want a fringe element running this thing. A moderate who believe in MMGW is one thing but a fringe lunatic could have a dramatic effect on prices both for individual consumers and businesses.

    well at least you're being honest. The only reason why there is any resistence to acceptance of MMGW is because of the reasons you just listed. When you put corporate money behind scientists, you can get them to deny that the sky is blue, and come up with dubious statistics to support it.

    I love how all the Kennedys love Obama. And are probably clueless his pal bomber published his own manifesto during his years as an active terrorist and dedicated it to Sirhan Sirhan among others. :rolleyes2:

    Remember that we use something like 150 Billion gallons of gas a year. So an increase of 50 cents per gallon (which is VERY conservative) for carbon emissions reduction costs us $75 Billion a year. For that price you'd better be REAL sure it's making a difference. And, again, 50 cents a gallon is very conservative. It's probably more like a $150 Billion a year tax increase. Yes - on working families.

    You people are so pathetic and sad. The enormous tax would come from everyone who drives a car and everyone who buys a product transported by a car.

    Yeah but that's all part of the global warming thing. So give Al Gore your money to stop it. Now.

    Right, it's "climate change" now. The fact that the earth's climate always changes, with or without man, is irrelevant. Climate change proves man is f*cking is up and we need Al to fix it for us.

    well, which one that was busted for Heroin. i think there were 3 of 4.
    and 2 rapists, William Kennedy Smith and Michael Kennedy, who ski'd into the tree.

    Ted and Patrick werent TECHNICALLY rapists, they were just there on the grounds while a rape occured, and Ted had that drowning incident a few years earlier.

    Didn't one of them rape his baby sitter down in Cohassett and then died or maybe got killed, I think he's the one skied into a tree, he thought the tree would get out of his way because he was a kennedy.
    Poor Rose, she spent her whole life in church praying for all those bastards, old Joe the father treated his wife Rose like a piece of sh!t.

    Heroin I believe.

    I'm not 100% sold on anthropogenic global warming, but I think it is OK for the head of the EPA to believe strongly in it. I mean after all the goal of the EPA is to try and help guide policy decisions based on potential harm, not to wait and see if the hypotheses are correct. I totally agree we can't be doing things that might halt our economy to be green, but that's where a responsible administration will listen to the EPA and then come up with a sensible policy. Will Obama do that or will he give this guy a blank check I guess we don't know yet, but he at least deserves a chance to show us.

    Isn't he (Kennedy) a firm believer in the link between childhood immunization and autism? Now there's something with little evidence that we should be concerned about him believing in.
