Full story: Farmington Daily Times

Despite the recent discovery of the e-mails that resulted in "Climate Gate" and the fact this has been one of the coldest and harshest winters in many years, Gov.

Dirty air is harmful to republicans too. You can't bury your head in the sand and pretend that it just isn't there. That's just crazy. We all need to face the fact that this isn't a political problem, it's a global problem.

How can we pass legislation based on unproven theory?
Many scientests believe we are actually in a cooling stage.
Sure, we all have an impact upon this planet. But we should do the things we know are based on facts. Like recycling, developing alternative renewable energy sources.
But I do not believe "the sk s falling". It would be foolish to pass any laws based on unproven theory.

It's a scam!! It's now coming out they reported false data about global warming effecting the rain forests. These con-artist, like Al Gore, are worse than Bernie Madoff. They should all be behind bars!!

Looks like nothing nut nut jobs the last time I checked. The warth has been in a warming cycle for the past ten thousand years. It has done this several times before.

To answer your question, there are only 2 kinds of people who take the global warming theory seriously: the ignorant, and those who stand to gain financially from this unproven theory.

I certainly do NOT take global warming seriously. The "science" of global warming is becoming more and more suspect. It is beyond stupid to damage our economy in order to please the Sierra Club and the environmental groups. If our politicians want to please the global-warming fanatics and ignore their constituents - they should be booted out of office.
The EPA endangerment decision was indeed based more on politics than on science.
And speaking of politics, even as I am writing this, television ads opposing Senator Murkowski's Resolution of Disapproval are being funded by environmental groups which are receiving HUGE contributions from the Howard Heinz Endowment and the Vira I. Heinz Endowment. Senator John Kerry's wife is, of course, the chair of these endowments.
Little conflict of interest there? I'll say!

The Earth is flat. Warts come from toads.

See, there's a reason _they_ are the scientists and you're not.

Agreed, but I have a more cynical take on it. The 2 main groups are extreme Left supporters that worship at the cult of environmentalism. Global warming is one of the pillars of that cult. The other group are the power hungry elitist scum that want to con people out of their freedoms and ability to self govern.
I have always just seen global warming as an effective rhetorical tool to be used by globalists and the fascist Left. I am glad that the politics behind it our coming out in the open. The debunkers should be seen as heroes.
I feel sorry for some of the people that are losing their religion, reality can be a shock for some.

The only thing the Global warming debate proves is how absolutely stupid and undereducated Americans are when comes to what "science" really is. I bet most people that have an "opinion" on this topic haven't read an actual science article from a reputable source in years.

It's not surprising that the folks yapping about not believing there is a phenomenon of global warming never seem to have any data to back up their doubt. Other than the schoolyard science of "look, it's snowing today". There is a bit more to the science than a day of rain or a season of snow. Rising sea levels, shrinking polar caps, changing weather patterns, etc. I don't understand why these yappers can't separate their hatred of a particular political group with the cold, hard facts of science. Does it make sense to not try and limit greenhouse gases and take the gamble that our future generations will have to figure it out at much greater expense and harm? The yappers need to leave the science to scientists even with the few miscreants who screwed up so badly in England. Or come up with some solid science that refutes the current science.

Us yappers have found out that Gore's claim about the polar ice caps was a lie. The UN admitted that they lied about the glaciers in Tibet. Don't forget about 'Climategate'. Also, the latest one is how the politicallly motivated scientists are hand picking what data the use from Artic Canada weather stations.
What else - last year, only 52 out of 802 or 702 UN climatoligists singed the UN's report on global warming.

You who call it the Global Warming theory should be shot.

Im assuming we all believe Darwins THEORY of evolution is still a theory?

Just because it gets cold does not mean Global Warming is not a problem.

People like you caused the name Climate Change to be used since your to ridiculous to understand the bigger picture.

Global temperatures do rise, and many things pollute the atmosphere, but the major contributor is CO2.

The only ones that take man made GW seriously are those like Al Bore et al pocketing serious coin from their doomsday hype machine. This is nothing more than a hoax propagated by scientist and profiteers to fund research and to line pockets with another type of green. Mad made GW is akin to santa claus, the easter bunny, bigfoot and the tooth fairy.

I'm assuming you're over 10 years of age and my guess is you may have noticed that climate hasn't changed much in your lifetime?
Well I'm a year short of being 70 and I haven't noticed much in the way of climate change either.
My promise to you, is that when (if you get lucky/unlucky) you reach my age, you won't have noticed any climate change either.
