Gore Effect Hits Middle East

Ah... Lebanon in April.

There's no doubt that the earth is warming. The question is whether carbon emissions are causing it or not.

Stop breathing. I'll let you know if the Earth gets cooler.

I believe our carbon emissions are a drop in the bucket, most of the warming/cooling is controlled by the big yellow ball in the sky. The (i)warming(/i) debate is moot (to me). Pollution on the other hand is tangable and we do cause that. Take the money they are wasting on seeing if cow farts cause warming and put it into cleaning up farm waste instead and we will be getting somewhere.

Hmmm, I'll never get the itallics/bold thinggy right.

Retired Navy,

Let's see - we can see that () doesn't work, let's see if BBcode will:
or straight html:

Ah, according to the Preview, straight HTML using the angle brackets (> and it's opposite) does.

Another Gore effect seems to be his high school teacher type supporters feel the need to bribe students to sign Alberts online petition.

"March 23rd is when he goes in front of Congress, Al Gore Dot Com" says Tom Knudson, a teacher at Northrop High School, encouraging his students, who watched the film, to sign an online petition supporting Gore's initiative in exchange for extra credit.

The problem is not the "global warming" that has taken place since the 70's (remember the "global cooling"?) but the lack of proper perspective in matters of climate. We are currently in a colder climate than at the time of the roman empire or the middle ages... That leads to policies that are downright silly e.g. Al Gore.

And don't forget that Al spends about 20 times per month in electricity than any normal person....

Not to mention its the same for natural gas, Specter. Al Gore is dangerous in more ways than one.

CY, I'm going to take a guess and say you flipped one too many pages on your calendar a couple of weeks ago.
