    Fun, fun show guys.

    Regarding the remarks that the scientific community agrees that global warming is occurring and is caused by humans, I might offer the rebuttal that there was a time when the scientific community agreed that the earth was flat, that the sun revolved around the earth, and so forth.

    I'm not personally arguing against the reality or lack thereof of global warming. I'm just pointing out that science itself isn't always an "exact science", as everything that is concluded empirically, is based on certain assumptions, and, time and time again, history has indicated that the assumptions used are not always correct.

    How funny about the "cure" for familiar as the phrase "not tonight, honey, I have a headache" has become, it's even more amusing. I think I will use this to my advantage. The next time I hear, "not tonight, honey, I have a headache", my response will be "Oh yeah? Well I got just the thing for that..."

    Hi Ferg and thanks for your comments!

    You are right, science is only as good as the latest technology and intelligence. And the great thing about science is that it does grow over time as long as scientists continue to obey the scientific methods.

    I think that we are suggesting is that since the scientific community is in pretty much agreement (based on today's known facts and what we know of the past) that there is strong evidence showing that human activity is leading to potentially dangerous global warming.

    Currently we have an administration that does not believe this. Why? I have no idea. Maybe it's GWB talking to God. Maybe it's his "conviction" as a leader. Clearly it makes sense to study this more and start to make some meaningful policy - just in case the scientists are right.

    You see, in contrast to the world being flat or the sun revolving around the world, the consequences of the scientists being right are much more serious and immediate to our well being.

    As far as the big 'O' goes - I say - right on! No excuses any more! Ah well, I'm sure they will muster some other excuse....

    Perhaps it's that GW is a visionary in much the same way Copernicus and Aristotle...knowing the actual nature of things despite what the community at large might think.

    Michael Crichton wrote an excellent novel about environmental activism and global warming (now referred to as "climate change" since Antarctica is getting colder) called State of Fear. He weaves his typcially riveting story while making very pointed observations about the "science" behind global warming.

    I definitely think it's possible that the climate of the planet is changing, I find it totally implausible that people are responsible for any meaningful part of it. I won't go into all the details here. Enjoy the Crichton novel, it's a fine and entertaining introduction to the topic.
