Why is it that Americans and in particular those that drive hummers, are nearly the only ones who doubt that pumping thousands of tonnes of carbondioxide into the atmosphere is a bad idea? People in Holland, Bangla Desh and other low lying countries are fouling their collective pants in fear of melting polar icecaps and rising sea levels.
@frosty, I think this was back when they were still talking about "global warming". "Global cooling" came along a few years later; eventually, the "scientists" realized that they had absolutely no clue what was going on, so they just decided to call it "global climate change". That way, no matter what happens, they can claim they were right!
I'm going to get so many down-votes for this comment, but...it was too much fun to resist.
