    Finally, someone has put together a brief but fairly objective overview of global warming:

       "The purpose of this primer is to explore some of the main scientific, economic and political issues surrounding the topic of global warming."

    http://www.ncpa.org/globalwarming/GlobalWarmingPrimer.pdf

    Should be required reading, especially in government schools and colleges.

    An excellent overview.

    Cool

    I'm tempted to say the F word.

    If Blackberrys are addictive cellphones, Channel9 is the ultimate addictive website.

    Nice try, Raymond, but they blatantly lie on page 2 of the pamphlet:

    pamphlet wrote:

    Disclaimer: This primer is based on a review of available scientific research.  The NCPA received no money and no input from any private company or government agency.


    and yet we see here:

    wikipedia wrote:

    The NCPA web site states that it "receives 70% of its funding from foundations, 20% from corporations, and 10% from individuals." It has received almost $400,000 from ExxonMobil over the last 10 years.[4] Expenditures in 2001 were $5.2 million.


    So, which is it?

    You FAIL.

    The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy research organization, established in 1983. The NCPA's goal is to develop and promote private alternatives to government regulation and control, solving problems by relying on the strength of the competitive, entrepreneurial private sector. Topics include reforms in health care, taxes, Social Security, welfare, criminal justice, education and environmental regulation.

    Corporate cronyism masquerading as a libertarian/free-market think tank.

    That's what I feel is a major problem with lib', it's easily exploitable by less-than-ethical companies.

    Yet another message from raymond where he posts links and runs. He never discusses anything so please don't bother replying and pointing out that all of his posted links contain false stuff.
