You have it backward. The Tea Party is a crazy bunch of anarcho-capitalist / libertarian / Christian fundamentalist theocrats who are masquerading as Republicans. Real Republicans were men like Senator Bob Dole and John Sherman Cooper. To see what kind of statesmen they were, just look up Cooper on Wikipedia.

re-pubic-lick-uns are changing. The increasingly radical re-pubic-lick-un party sends tea partiers out to test american waters, to see what re-pubic-lick-uns can safely incorporate into their busting-up party, which does not represent Americans.

I'm not educated well enough in science to say whether or not global warming is real. Even if it is not, we are still in trouble because of the ever increasing amount of coal being burned. This report from China could well be the future for the whole world.

Yeah, we know you have no science or mathematics degrees. Probably, you have little science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in your poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa. We know what you don't know.

As for the Chinese report you make sound like its something new, chinese communists(always small letters) have been heavily polluting their city & landscapes & Chinese citizen organs for many score years, as they dirtily industrialize. With much effort AND without an EPA, chinese communists(always small letters) have been killing themselves with pollution. Initially thought to be 500,000+ chinese per year, later reports have upped the vicious deaths(again, probably conservative) to 1.2 million deaths per year, with little end of death by pollution in sight.

re-pubic-lick-uns, spearheaded by tea partiers, smug about American pollution, fight further regulations for coal, oil, gas, transportation, & electrical energy generation, & voluntarily look away as their own citizens & constituents die of pollution.

Yeah, "real re-pubic-lick-un" plus all his other AGW deniers, can't know anything, without science & mathematics. Its not-so-humble admission of its lack, does not curb AND readily adds to pollution deaths in the world, & in its own country.

Killer smogs are the PAST (1950's to 1970's) for the rest of the world. China is just 'catching up' and learning the same 'lesson' that we are starting to forget..

Damn idiots like you are why the Tea Party was able to take over the GOP. I never said I deny global warming. I said I don't have the science education (I have a MA degree, but not in science) to say. I defer to the scientists who do have the education. But when people like me who try to stand up to the whackos in the Tea Party are attacked by people like you, it cuts the ground right out from under us with the rank and file.

The UN's WHO just published a report on lung cancer caused by this type of pollution. We are not forgetting but observing and analyzing the havoc from fossil fuels.

Another point is to remind China that they were not to repeat the mistakes of the west.. What happened to those promises?

It is late they deliver on their words.

You may be right, but what takes its place might be worse. Imagine a Tea Party as the powerful second party. On the other hand, there may be a new, younger generation of men and women in the mold of John Sherman Cooper who will win the "Civil War" that is going on in the Republican Party and bring it back to the center. That would probably be the best outcome. But for that to happen, the Democrats also have to come toward the center, and work together like Cooper and Hubert Humphrey did.

Transplanted euros, still chewing on "injuns", are so ravenous, they now feed on themselves, your example being prime. It is not my mission that particular euro & transplanted euro political parties exist. It is time for you to see that your party NEEDS to pass away & surrender its egotism. Rich transplanted (re-pubic-lick-un?) euros will take care of themselves & do not need lower case re-pubic-lick-uns to run political thick-walled interference for them.

It was the same old denier bullshit I read here all the time.

Speaking of Mr. Gore, "24 Hours Of Reality" starts today at 1PM CDT. The theme this year is "The Cost of Carbon".

For those of us in the know, it may be a rehash of what we already know, but still, you may learn something if you tune in. I could say the same for the deniers here, but I would probably be overly optimistic in doing so.

For any fence-sitters, like the old-school Republican who just joined us, watch it from your fence and then make up your mind.
