I visited Mt. St Helens about ten years ago.

The entire Green movement is based on creating catastrophies and second-rate class warfare. A former head of Greenpeace has ADMITTED this and it was a big part of why he left. What about in California and Washington when the greens wanted to stop logging to save the spotted owl? Well, they destroyed dozens of local communities and cost hundreds of jobs and guess what? It didn't help the spotted owls, in fact, they are worse off now! And the thinning of the forests would have helped combat the fires they experienced there recently!! The hole in the ozone layer is getting SMALLER!
It insults intelligent people to act as if the science is even CLOSE to settled regarding global warming. We simply do not have enough historical data, sorry. We just don't.
Kyoto is a complete joke and Gore and Clinton knew it. They flapped their gums about it and did nothing. Actions count, not words. Why is China exempt? Do their fossil fuels not contribute to climate change?? Why isn't Putin raked over the coals as 'defying' the international community on this one, as Bush has been?
Would liberals honestly be happier if Bush called a press conference and talked about how great Kyoto was, and then proceeded to do nothing? Is it really gestures and not actions that impress them?
