    The last time it snowed in Baghdad was 100 year ago. That fact, of course, made me wonder how my car could have been responsible. :D

    The thing I marvel at about those who would use global warming for their own ends (political expediency, socialism, etc.) is how they say that if something isn't done "soon" it will be irreversible. But it seems as if there's no set date - just a sense of urgency to play more on your fears and make you agree with those using it as an agenda. Nice subtle trick.

    Bingo. Fear tactics at it's best. Similarly, those same people are the one's who chastize others for fear mongering terrorism. Also, if you say it has to be done ASAP, without setting a date for D-day, then when some form of policy is passed, and the natural cycle reverts, you can claim you were correct. I have no issues with protecting the environment, and I encourage it. I just hate the BS that is Kyoto, and all the diarea that comes with it.
