On June 6, the Climate Security Act fell short of the votes needed to keep it alive in the U.S. Senate, pushing debate on climate action to next year for a new Congress and president.

"Manmade global warming is a myth, and the cult surrounding it will fade into obscurity, but the costs and taxes imposed to combat this imagined menace will remain. (p>In 1998, a peculiar thing happened. Global warming, such as it was, came to an end. Since then, global temperatures have trended downwards, while carbon-dioxide emissions have risen.

The disconnect between carbon-dioxide emissions and global temperature trends proved what many scientists had been saying for some time, that the two are unrelated. But this should have been intuitively obvious in any case because industrial carbon dioxide represents only a tiny percentage of the atmosphere, so it is hardly likely to be a powerful climatic driving force.

It stretches credibility to suppose that such a vanishingly small percentage of a naturally occurring minor gas would be potent enough to drive Earth's climate into meltdown. But it stretches credibility even further to suppose that reducing this fraction by a few per cent would then be sufficient to reverse it.

If the Earth's atmosphere were that sensitive to infinitesimal tweaks to its minor constituent gasses, we would not be here today debating it, because the climate would have spiralled out of control millions of years ago when carbon-dioxide levels were some 10 times higher than today."

So why would you urge politicians to fleeces you even more than they do for something as phony as man-made climate change.

Kate...the "climate Security Act" was the Leiberman/Warner Bill and before that the "useless traitor"sponsored the Leiberman/McCain bill which was only slightly more draconian than the one that just failed.

For all of those in need of some balance to climate hysteria, I recomend the series of interviews of skeptical scientists done by Lawrence Solomon, long time Canadian jounalist and anti-nuclear activist.

Anti-denaliest Resources

If you're looking for a chance to educate yourself on climate change, get started on greening your own life (with all the normal caveats that lifestyle changes are nowhere near enough) or have facts and figures at hand to win your next argument with a denialist, you've got some tricky choices ahead of you. After all, the web has never been more overrun with climate "resources" and "guides," and most of them are lame -- some are downright inaccurate or misleading. (quote from the author, not me )

Here is a quick survey of some interesting and useful links:

Both of my Sentors here in North Carolina voted for it. Elizebeth Dole, she's a fighter, she good for the animals here too. Also Richard Burr he too voted for it. I have written many letters to Mrs Dole and she always replies not to many senators do this. She's a hard hiter for health plans and medicare, these are the kind of people we need. Thanks Cher C.
