Pelosi feels Congress should pass emissions restrictions
Will Pelosi include those restrictions on her own personal Air Force jet? However, I have to give her some credit, at least she is now stating that increasing nuclear power should be an option on the table. I guess it’s a start.
Boston Globe reporter compares global warming deniers to holocaust deniers.
This is incredible. I can’t accurately describe the harshness of the language in Ellen Goodman’s piece, so it’s best for you to read yourself. Basically, because I question the "now certain fact" that humans are changing the earth’s climate I am likened to someone who denies the holocaust. This is a fascinating mindset. The "believers" are so convinced of the reality of human induced climate change that they perceive it as something that has already happened, like the holocaust.
Let me be clear for Ms Goodman and her stooges. The Holocaust was real because it happened. Human induced climate change is a theory, a theory with a good amount of conflicting evidence. If it had already happened, there wouldn’t be much debate about it right? This comparison is way off base. But then she reveals her true intentions by ripping into Bush and his "science be damned" administration. So, there it is, this is all about politics after all. And she has the gall to say that the "deniers" are in it for political gain.
She seems to think, along with all the other believers, that the UN’s conclusion should have ended the debate, that the "deniers" should be satisfied with the "truth" because the UN now says it’s real. Baloney. To echo Dennis Miller, the fact that the UN says it’s true makes me less likely to believe it. So maybe this is more about trust in the UN than the environment? Who knows? But Ms Goodman and the Boston Globe need to be careful with the language they use. Just because I don’t blindly accept questionable science, doesn’t mean I’m anything like a Holocaust denier.
