Plenty of Reasons Why

There is probably a good reason why the Free State Politics crowd stopped talking about global warming when Maryland's conservative blogosphere started talking extensively about it this week. The facts just aren't on their side, and this post at RedState from California Yankee goes a long way towards consolidating numerous links, studies, and reports detailing the total lack of consensus on the issue, including a recent report from the Senate's EPW Committee report noting the hundreds of scientists who are skeptical of the alleged "consensus."

This is just endemic of the problem on the left once again, much as it was with my debate throwdown. The majority of liberals like to talk smack and bloviate about generalities, but try to get them in a discussion about facts they get scared and run to momma. It's a sad statement on political discourse when you can't even get your opposition to stand up for what they believe in, but it's becoming painfully obvious that is what the modern urban liberals have become...

In this era of the internet it's easy to cite sources that support your point of view. But right now, it's raining, 50+ degrees on Dec. 23, the 1st day of Winter, in Annapolis. 2006 was the hottest year on record and 2007 hasn't been averaged yet, but 19 of 20 of the last 10 years have been the hottest year on record (Union of Concerned Scientists). Are you ready for the after-spoils world in which there's no oil to bring food to you and no bullets for your rifle because we had to sell them to the Chinese for 1/10th their cost after our oil-based, foreign-propped economy tanked?
Happy Holidays.
