This will be funny. Nader is also going to debate whether anything Obama has done really works.

A wingnut non-scientist invites another wingnut non-scientist to debate climate science on television?

Isn't that what Topix is for?

This should be good, Senator Inhofe is a hero of the anti-alarmism movement.

I like Inhofe on this, the voice of reason. We have real dangerous problems like Fukushima that need a Manhattan project sized global response. Giving Al Gore all our money in carbon credits because he lies is bullshit.

Yeah, the oil and coal industry likes Inhofe as well. He's the voice of carbon. They've given him more than $2.2 million, along with media time that's worth easily as much.

In return, Inhofe has pushed hard to invade Iraq, to maintain Federal oil and coal subsidies, and to prevent any regulation of carbon pollution whatsoever.

He also never met a conservative wingnut he didn't love: he hews far to the right on abortion, gay rights, civil rights, military imperialism, tax cuts, deregulation, school prayer, you name it.

Just the kind of guy to trust with science and the future of humanity.

Why are you scared of coal? The USA is the Middle East of coal. We need to use as much as possible to be energy independent.

Did you know that lignite coal can be converted to REAL gasoline at under 80 cents a gallon?

http://www.uta.edu/engineering/news/mediarele...

The real number is now much lower.

America could be a net crude exporter and use gasoline from coal exclusively. Giving America a trade surplus for the first time since Ford was president.

If you really cared you would be for getting every first generation nuclear plant on Earth off line. Glassifation all nuclear waste possible. Work toward 4th generation pebble bed nuclear power electrical generation as well as Thorium nuclear technologies.

The answers are all around us as long as we don't play politics and put people first.

BTW,more polar bears than evah. The AGM model is a scam to impoverish every westerner that inst a member of the inner circle of banking elites.

I'll let NASA Chief Scientist Dr. James Hansen answer that. Two years ago he wrote a good op-ed on coal for The Observer (a London newspaper).

So a president who gives taxpayer money to his crony corporate friends in the green energy field are sincere but a Senator who is skeptical of climate change mitigation is a prostitute, that's the way you think? We think you are mistaken, you think we are bad; this is the difference between leftists and conservatives.

Get over Solyndra. The solar panel industry is an outgrowth of the defense department; we taxpayers have been funding satellite panels for about fifty years, and the research has been intense and expensive. For a few years I had a close-up view of that. Industry doesn't innovate much on its own--the big investments in solar R&D were all on the defense dime, and our leaders had the poor judgment to think that doing the same thing in public view would be just fine. As they say, you should never watch sausage being made.

Get government our of the energy markets. If you like $700 toilet seats and $500 hammers, you are going to love your electricity bills.

You might not enjoy watching the manufacture of sausage but knowledge has a quality more valuable than ignorance.

$700 toilet seats are what you get when you throw trillions at the military, but nothing else in government comes close to that level of abuse.

Computers, the Internet, cell phones, wi-fi, jetliners, solar power; they and much more were developed for the military, and their civilian uses followed at a respectful distance.
