Every other word in that article (by Steven Millroy) reveals an extreme bias . . . the kind of bias that you reveal... a closed minded reaction to anything percieved as originating in the opposite camp politically.
Its clear that he is preaching to the converted, his mind is made up and he wont think beyond his catch phrases (such as "anti-business", "sneaky attempt", "global warming-loving media" (like foxnews?)ect) He is an ideologue.
And the people he is talking about as allies, the "non-profit Competitive Enterprise Institute," are not scientists, they are ideologically impaired, ultra-conservatives like yourself, that would rather we steer ourselves directly towards what over 90% of scientist say is trouble, simply because they have some political problems seeing anything for what it is.
The idiocy of this man is bottomless, look at the sayings he uses . . . yes, as an adult, writing supposed journalistic opinions he says this kind of thing to make points : "(sort of like the vegetarian who had a cheeseburger because, unfortunately, she got hungry)" Jee ..yeah... its just like those damn feminist bitch vegetarians commie pinkos" oops...stuped to his level...
IT is clear that phenomena on the Earth effect weather conditions: volcanos can drastically alter weather and have been shown to do so: Humans have altered the landscape drastically, and it has a marked effect on local weather conditions: cities effect rainfall and temperature a great deal, and you need to look no further than the Aral Sea to see that humans can have a severely catastrophic and large scale effect on the environment, which, in turn, seriously alters millions of lives. Granted, what may happen with global warming may take a long time and we may adapt by moving vinyards up north etc, but there will still be many needless tragedies along the way.
And this man's blythe dismissal of scientific thought in favor of his politicized opinions is IRRESPONCIBLE at best
He is no more an authority than you are... and your bias is written all over you . . . and once again... how come you people never notice this: the people who are crying "Liberal media bias" are ALWAYS DOING SO THROUGH THE MEDIA!!!!!!
Where are the poeple who say it is corporate media?
they are always outside of the media limelight!!! --ostracized because they don't sell!!!

And is the Pew Charitable trust seen as a bastion of Liberalism because it gives money to that commie network PBS? with their damn animal shows!!!
Or worse, their three hours straight of business and financial news analysis programs DAILY!!!!!!!
Where are the real liberal shows, about real liberal issues? When was the last time you saw a regular hour long weekly program about labor politics?!?!?! never... and you never will either.... unless its on public access.... but don't worry, conservatives will AXE access channels as soon as they can
Its articles like this that make it almost impossible to think without myself becoming the knee-jerk that he is . . I try to embrace all thought: Right & Left.... but then some idiot comes along and starts spouting Mao, or, denying human environmental impact and it gets harder and harder <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" /> <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />
