Sun Cycles

I listened to information about this on the Mike Church Show this morning, and here is an Al Fin blog piece on it.

And here is some more Global Warming info via The Canadian Sentinel blog: NATIONAL POST.

Again, I will say that I do not disagree with finding other forms of fuel. That's what people do - learn, explore, experiment, test, analyze, create.... but what I do disagree with is scaring the living crap out of people and making them believe that they are killing the earth and going to freeze our future children to death, forcing changes faster than the technology can keep up with, and threatening to put hundreds of thousands of people out of work (oil, gas, coal, and anything to do with those resources - and taxi drivers too!) - based on theories.

*taxi driver link was found on Debbie Schlussel's blog

Excerpt from article: ""Alluding to his background as a resident of the former Soviet Union, Ophir said that city officials pushing for hybrid taxis "want to be more socialist, but they want capitalists to pay for their socialist ideas.""

  1. I agree completely - I think we have to assume the "potential" that global warming theories have a point - but, in light of the fact that their models are extremely difficult, if not impossible to use to create useful predictions, I think that both the hard right and the hard left should perhaps be rational and prudent in developing a future policy that is not some hysterical reaction, for or against, the possibility of global climate change.

    Making outlandish threats and predictions that they can't back up only makes it harder when the science does suggest certain steps are prudent - and my read of the best scientists makes this point.

    Scientists shouldn't mix science with politics or social science. Speak to the science, without political purpose.

    So-called "scientists" like David Suzuki miss this point entirely.
