Can you blame only Palin for the stupid party? Of course, not.

It took a lot of single and joint stupid efforts.

<quoted text>LOL...I have found out for my self and my request to "PHD" was sarcastic. You could figure that out? LOL. How do expect you to understand anything at this point?Your remarks about Wallop10 are funny because from your own posts most people would think that it is you who is so desperate to feel like you matter.I would hope that as an American,you too hope to find the answers that this country needs. I think that it's obvious from following the money trail that you are just a tool.
My request that you dig for the facts was anything but sarcastic. And this country can find the answers, but it needs to learn from the mistakes of the past not repeat them over and over. Learn from those mistakes.

Those who are desperate are those who have a need to feel that man has control over the climate in some manner, that man could cause it to warm or cool. From your posts you are one of those who feels that need, that would ignore that which disproves what you need to believe in.

What IS desperate is your way of trying to understand those who disagree with you.You are so desperate to deny that man could be infuencing the climate that you will accept biased information from questionable sources.You request that other "follow the money trail"and refuse to do so yourself.I won't pretend to know what drives you like you have with me and so many others but I will tell you that most people that I talk to that take your stance are desperate to deny global warming and it's implications because they don't want to take responsibility for their own actions.They don't want to admit that their action could very well be harming our planet.They don't want to drive a smaller car or upgrade their insulation in their home or ride a bike to work.They want to stick their heads in the sand,turn up the thermostat and drive their big vehicles and shout short sighted nonsense like "drill baby drill". I have no"need to feel that man has control over the climate in some manner".I would rather feel like we don't.I simply believe that the planet is getting warmers and that in all likelyhood man has some influence on that.Do I feel like we can reverse that?Do I feel like we should have signed the Kyoto protocol/agreement? You might find that there is some common ground there if you asked the right questions.What I know for sure is that you are way off on my motivation for having the beliefs that I have.

The argument could easily be made that humans are incapable of being unbiased.Funny that you profess strong beliefs on this matter knowing full well that you are being fed a steady diet of biased information.

I have a strong belief that global warming cooling climate change is useless babble to extract more tax dollars from the real tax payers. I also have a strong belief that there is a climate change global warming cooling going on. Would it be called season change?
Is it biased, both sides of the story. You pick a favorite based on your political, religious belief or some agenda your on.

Hmmmm....so your conclusion is that any changes observed in the global climate can be attributed to the changes in the season?I guess there is no reason for you to dig any deeper than that.Why would you when it truly is that simple? Good day sir.

No, more to it that. I do expect you to think for yourself and consider the season change as part of the issue. If it were as simple as that we wouldn't have scientific science fiction,there would be real science. Good day sir yourself.

You are quite humorous in how you accuse me of accepting as you put it "biased information from questionable sources" when you are guilty of that very same action. You are so in denial that you are attributing what others have said to me. I have always told everyone that they should do their own research into all sides of the arguement which you have clearly not done. You have ignored the history of the subject in a vain bid to blame on man what has been happening for the last ten thousand years, since the end of the ice age.

What you want to believe is man has complete control of the world around him. That man can change the climate by our collective will if we would only just believe. Yet even if everyone was to will it that would not stop a hurricane or blizzard from happening. You want to believe that if people would ride a bike to work in the middle of the winter when it is below zero or a family of five should drive one of those little electric cars. Problem is that some people live to far away to bike and even when they live close enought the weather is not alway acceptable for riding to and from work on pedal power. That a family who has three teenage boys cannot travel together in one of those "smaller" cars and that many businesses need those larger cars such as taxi's.

I would not be surprised that you are young, single or maybe have one little child. That you live in an apartment and have most likely a job and not a career or are even still in school. I have seen many like you in my life and they all seem to have a need to feel like they can change the world, are angry because they have answers that no one seems to want to pay attention. Of course the problem is that those answers have been tried in the past. Sometimes several times and the results have been the same. Those who are older already know what the results of those younger people's ideas are. Not to say that those who are older should not listen to the younger people ideas, but those are younger should also listen to their elders to learn what has worked in the past and what did not. Not only what did not but why so they can learn from the mistakes of the past. Like I bet that you didn't know that about seventy-five ago that there were people who thought like you do now. They predicted the world would end of man did not change.

Which would mean that you are being just as biased as those who you accuse of being bias. Also, how do you know that you are not being fed a steady diet of biased information. Have you bothered to actually dig for opposing view points and study those closely. Somehow I think not.

And you think topix doesn’t know what you publish? Attacks on me won't delete or erase what you are and what you do. You should stop making an ASSumption of your---self before you know the facts.

I still have no idea where you get the idea that I believe that "man has complete control over the world around him"or why you keep repeating it.I do not believe that nor have I ever said that.Please stop making this crap up.I have never even stated that I believe that man is the driving force behind global warming.Never said it.Don't put words in my mouth.I think it is you who "is attributing what others have said to me".So your claim that I accept biased information just as you do is false.I have read "information" from both sides and feel that it is inconclusive.This is ONE of the reasons that I stated that I disagreed with us signing the Kyoto protocol.I think that you are working on the assumtion that I something that I am not.You are reading things into my posts that simply aren't there.You are a very confused woman.

Wow!! I was just about to press "post comment" and respond to your first few rambing sentances when I decided to read the rest of your post.I read a little more to find out that you have invented a whole life for me.A life where I am a young person with a "job not a career" who is "single or maybe have one little child" I live in an apartment and I think I can change the world.My God woman you are an absolute raving lunatic.

I really squirm at the notion of posting any personal information on here but...I am over 50,I graduated from college over thirty years ago.I do drive an economical car and sometimes ride my bike to work but I also own an F250,motorcycles and other gas fueled toys.I own my home as well as a cabin in the mountains.You have some imagination girl
