"We could just wing it and hope it does not happen. But it seems as though 276 peer reviewed articles stating that Man is contributing to Global Warming, and 0 (zero) that says we do not, ends the argument. dang science..." Hmm, I remember how well accepted the great floods of Washington were by the scientific community and lets not forget the warm welcome that the theory of continental drift got from the scientific community when it was first proposed. Peer reviewed is just another word for peer pressure. Look at the science...real hard. So much of what passes for science these days is "politically correct". But where the science meets the road is politics......Last summer there was a poll in England on what the country should do to meet the kyoto protocols. The choice was ban jet travel or the privately owned car. The poll was split. Half were willing to give up their holidays...the other half their cars. So what would you be willing to give up?? Jet travel? One of the primary contributers to global warming. Your car? Makes commuting and fishing trips real difficult. Jimmy Carter proposed to ration gasoline to 10 gallons per licensed driver in 1979 during the last "gas" crises. Would you accept that to deal with global warming? So do you think Senators Murray and Cantwell will push for limits on jet travel or personal travel to meet Kyoto? Or do you have the feeling that this is all much ado about nothing? Yeah, lets just yell and point rather than do anything about it.....that way I win re-election and all my voters feel good about it!!!
