The Koch Brothers EXTERNALIZE COSTS so that we the taxpayer, the American citizen who do not buy their crap products pay for them involuntarily.
I see, when we exhale CO2, that's a small but real externalized cost. The only problem, you don't have a market for those costs, no real evidence by test, trial or demonstration, so the externalized cost of greenhouse gas emission is imaginary.

Economies of scale, old and well practiced technology drive our economy. The government produces nothing, it just takes, that's involuntary, you can choose to breathe bottled air and sequester your carbon compressed to diamonds, for all I care.

I have always said the easiest way to tell the other side is loosing is when they have to reort to insulting language such as Oregon is Disgusting has. But I have to admit they are the best way to convince people that man made global warming and liberals in general are wrong.

Well, now that the hateful little troll has departed...

Global Warming: An anti-scientific political movement

“Based on our analyses, especially with respect to the violations of the principles regarding objectivity and full disclosure,” Armstrong told members of Congress,“we conclude that the manmade global warming alarm is an anti-scientific political movement.”

http://ppjg.wordpress.com/2011/04/09/global-w...

"The three researchers audited the forecasting procedures used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), whose “procedures violated 81% of the 89 relevant forecasting principles”

In the end we have had to accept that global warming is a contrived and fabricated myth that was launched into the public consciousness with ulterior motives attached."

Yoo-hoo Mr. Gore.....jigs up !!!

Unable to find enough hot-spots in populated regions of planet Earth, climate scientists have pinpointed the Arctic as the area most affected by 'global' warming or climate change or climate disruption or whatever the current watchword is.
Few of these scientists have ever been anywhere near the Arctic to take a close look, satellite photos, computer models and a few temperature reading stations are enough for them.

I wonder how much grant money he got for this ridiculous study.

'Does Marijuana Cause Global Warming?' New 'Study' by Evan Mills of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory finds indoor Cannabis production has a very large carbon footprint'

'Potheads Destroying The Climate': Forget the oil company execs.'Put the hippies on trial for climate crimes'--'Pot growers inhale 1% of U.S. electricity, exhale GHGs of 3Million cars'

roflmao. Must have been an awful lot of money to waste so much time, effort, & energy on nonsense like this. He probably enlarged his carbon footprint working on this useless paper !!!
LOL !!!

I have to agree with Dr Wolfgand Thüne, especially regarding the morally unjustifiable spending involved.
Alarmists will have a lot to answer for when the curtain falls on this charade.

Wouldn’t REAL planet lovers NOT want this misery to happen, instead of working so hard to believe in this suffering to happen? Defending doomsday after 25 years of widespread doubt is hurting the planet and environmental efforts, not helping the 5 billion year old planet that WE human monkeys evolved from.
Wasn’t it the scientists themselves that originally polluted the planet with their pesticides and cancer causing chemicals, making environmentalism necessary in the first place? And now “THEY” expect us to bow to them like obedient lemmings and tell our kids they are going to die just because "they" said so? NO! We don't trust scientists and we don't trust news editors and we don't trust politicians promising to lower the seas and make the weather colder with taxes. And besides, if the crisis was real, the scientists would be raising jack and marching in the streets after their IPCC funding was pulled and when Obama didn't even mention the "crisis" in his Feb.2011 state of the union speech.
Scientists are not gods and don’t forget that scientists also produced cruise missiles, cancer causing chemicals, land mine technology, nuclear weapons, germ warfare, cluster bombs, strip mining technology, Y2K, Y2Kyoto, deep sea drilling technology and now climate control.
A wave of other former climate change believers are now demanding that politicians and law makers have the leading scientists and especially the unconscionable leading news editors, subjected to criminal charges for knowingly sustaining the criminal exaggerations of the CO2 mistake for the last 25 years. It is now appearing that issuing CO2 death threats to billions of children unnecessarily has not gone unnoticed and unlike Bush getting away with his false war in Iraq, the false war of climate change will sooner or later be dealt with in the courts. Treason charges for leading a country to a false war is one option now being looked at as politicians always need an enemy to blame.
Do the math. We MUST stop scaring our kids with the CO2 mistake, but even they are laughing.

THE DAY CLIMATE CHANGE DIED, JULY 6TH 2011.
This was a great day for REAL planet lovers but not for humanity hating CO2 climate crisis believers.
Boston/Harvard/UofT:
"World temperatures did not rise from 1998 to 2008, while manmade emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuel grew by nearly a third, various data show.
The researchers from Boston and Harvard Universities and Finland's University of Turku said pollution, and specifically sulfur emissions, from coal-fuelled growth in Asia were responsible for the cooling effect."
In "reconciling anthropogenic climate change with observed temperature," the Boston University researchers found that despite the "widely noted increase in the warming effects of rising greenhouse gas concentrations," "global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008."
So CO2 has not warmed the planet since 1998, but rather SULPHUR has cooled the planet since 1998 say the "scientists". Gee, sounds like the saintly scientists found a cure for a global warming. Now, if we can just get this climate "change" thingy under control, only then will our planet be like it used to be, like the inside of an indoor shopping mall.
