  1. Given the current controversy swirling around over the actions of some of the “climate” scientists, I would hope that we do NOT commit either significant resources, monetary or otherwise until we can be more certain that what we’re doing is based on irrefutable evidence. As it stands, I’m more inclined to side with those who think that those with a narrow agenda, i.e., the environment; and those who stand to gain financially are driving this bus. And who’s to say what damage knee jerk reaction now will do to our environment in the future?

  2. @Glennis – Sorry, exactly which climate scientist stands to gain financially from climate change legislation/policy??? That is ridiculous! Those guys work in research labs, not big business.

    You want to know who is funded by big business like Oil, Gas, and Coal companies? (Let’s talk about the real entrenched interests who stand to gain financially through their disinformation/scare/delay campaigns to maintain the staus quo.) Check this out: http://blog.environmentalchemistry.com/2007/05/who-is-funding-climate-change-skeptics.html

    Just one quotation from that site: “The American Enterprise Institute (AEI), which is an ExxonMobil-funded think tank, sent out letters to scientists and economists offering them $10,000 each to undermine a report UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) before it was released on Feb. 2, 2007.”

    Oh, and you’re insinuating that reducing GHG emissions will somehow damage our environment in the future? HUH????
