Doesn't anybody listen to George W. Bush any more? If they did, they would realize there is no such thing as global warming, and that is why we are winning the war in Iraq. So buy that SUV, and turn the AC up on max and you won't feel hot either. See?

Another article about this bad idea says we already spend 6.5 billion each year studying climate through NASA, NOA, EPA & others like them.

But now we'll spend a yet to be determined amount to divert CIA from hunting terrorists and bad guys, so they can study "projections" from IPCC?

Everything the IPCC puts out is questionable. Their info has been shown to be flawed and skewed to the political beliefs of America's enemies. But now our leaders want to feed this faulty information into the CIA.

Heaven help us.

"National Intelligence" with respect to "Global Warming" gives new meaning to the term "oxymoron".

This is how Democrats run things? Very sad indeed.

You are a raving, ignorant, misguided moron. Your rant is senseless. Thank God you dont have the power to burn people at the stake, as they did in Salem in the 1600s. It pangs me that persons like you can vote. Too bad you cant think.

Considering the American political and scientific representatives appointed by the Bush Administration took part in creating the IPCC reports and summaries, and all had to agree with all content ... are you saying that the Bush administration who selected them for this process is America's enemy?

At least the debate is moving past whether or not there is Global Warming, and moving on to what to do about it.

the science is inconclusive and contestable, what to do about, IF it is ever proven, is inconclusive and indeterminate, but everyone seems to be in a rush to pay higher prices and taxes in the religous belief they have bought into.

Can't we jsut be good stewards of the earth without having to believe in BS?

The obvious answer is NO.
Like I said previously the Global Warming debate is over.
One effect the warming trend is haveing at home: the Feds are freaking out because cars with better mileage are being produced in an effort to cut down on emissions and it is hitting the USA right in the tax coffers. Now I understand why bush was against higher car fuel efficiency standards.
Some folks feel that this "imaginary threat" is greater than terrorism - and this is coming from republicans.

This seems to be so incredibly obvious ... More money for a study? Why not put it toward some effective means of combating global warming. The Tokyo Accords???

Your moronic rant is pointless and rife with factual errors. Are you completely uneducated or just a raving lunatic?

Please support your argument with facts and numbers, or, refrain from posting unintelligent, garbage.

Proof that the GOP publicly disses Global Warming, but behind closed doors spend billions studying its effects.
I wonder what Fox Snooze would say?

I combed through Fox Snooze's database online and I could not find 1 iota of evidence to support my claims.

it is not caused by humans though. Get building sea walls if you think the sea is rising. If it gets hotter we will save money on fuel. Global warming is GOOD!
