    Actually, not even close. The fact is that if one is interested in the science, you look to scientific process to define the science and then make policies based on the results. Inhofe has zero interest in the science, just an interest in protecting his own ox from getting gored no matter what the future implication might be.

    Here is a real good one. This highlights the absurdity if not the corruption of it all.

    Well, the latest medicare payment structure was passed under Bush with his republican congress. If you have a problem, its with YOUR boy. Careful loading up that cannon. It just blew up in your face.

    But like I said last post; anyone who thinks healthcare reform is going to put doctors on easy street has no understanding or insight into what's going on, and isn't even an interested spectator in this game! Actually, it was under Nixon-Ford-Carter-Reagan that physician's pay was the highest. Us guys now are paying for all that greed. I don't blame them, it was just a reflection of the times......me me me! Wish I was working then, I'd be on "easy street" now! I took out a 30 year mortgage to pay off a house that the retired physician before me paid cash for in 1970. He took himself and about $2 million in race horses with him and retired to the Chesapeake Bay area on a new horse ranch. THAT'S easy street!

    No, like I said earlier, kind of like Dick Cheney's energy policy meetings. You know, the ones where one day he claims senatorial privilege, then the next he claims executive privilege?

    I believe this last week's health care summit was fully televised, with no TelePrompTers either.

    I was referring to a room full of idiots bloviating, with no idea on how to really solve a problem. Senate hearings on global warming vs health care summit. I guess I need to talk a little slower. And I was actually responding to Yardley, not you. Same difference I guess.

    Great. So here we have an article written by Christopher Booker with the headline:
    A perfect storm is brewing for the IPCC

    The emerging errors of the IPCC's 2007 report are not incidental but fundamental, says Christopher Booker


    So who is Christopher Booker? Born in 1937, Booker did an undergraduate degree in history with no subsequent educational experience. His first job was as a joke writer and went on to more difficult assignments as Jazz critic, puzzle writer, and satirist. His forays into scientific areas have been more recent. In addition to his breathtaking journalistic investigations of global warming (where he claims to have written the skeptics' handbook), Booker is also known for his "scientific" conclusion that asbestos is not harmful and that there is no risk at all associated with second hand smoke.

    Well lets see... Al Gore was a senator, VP of the US and losing presidential candidate. Can't seem to find a scientific background for Algore.

    And, if you notice, I say that I do not accept Gore as an authority for just that reason. That said, he has spent a lot more time studying the issues that Booker who is a johnny come lately on issues of the environment.
