The Earth has been worming since the Ice Age. Since 1999 it has been cooling off and the ice at Antarctica has increased by over 10% in the past few years.

That one year is warmer or cooler than the next is irrelevent; it's about the historical trend. See the graph at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Image:Instrumental_Temperature_Record.png

dump 20+ billion tons (Gt) of CO2 gases into the atmosphere every year, year after year, and not believe that it is going to have a major effect on the earth's climate, considering that there is a definite direct positive correlation between temperature and the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.

Here's another indisputable correlation. Of all the people convicted of murder in this county, over 99% of them ate bread at least once. With that kind of correlation, I think it's obvious what the government should do.

face of it, anything can be caused by anything else. For example, "hundreds of thousands of hunters enter Wisconsin every year and the deer herd is increasing. Therefore, hunting cause population increase in deer." Another: "all druggies drank milk when they were kids. Therefore...." There must be an evidentiary link between cause and effect. And there is plenty of hard evidence for global warming. Even if it is caused primarily by cyclical changes in the earth's atmosphere, the results can be catastrophic. Do a little checking on the "Little Ice Age" of 1635-1715 (known to astronomers as the Maunder Minimum) when lakes in England froze year-round. Someone else "made the point" that we have only 100 years of data. True, but we also have instruments that can weigh molecules, detect motion in stars trillions of miles away, and measure pollution to within parts per billion. Support for global warming is based on hard evidence and not just aneccdotes or short-term historiography. The point is that global warming is a fact--even Shrub acknowledges it--and regardless of its causes there is great potential danger for millions of people and billions of dollars in property.

So, it's a good theory because Bush acknowledges it? Or we are supposed to believe it because Bush acknowledges it? Bush doesn't get everything right and has been known to do some things for political expediency -- this appears to be one of them.

Shrub sucking up to the left. Right.
No doubt he was softening them up to give him $225 billion more for that sinkhole of a war.

Wow, you haven't seen evidence of that? And you call the members of the right narrow-minded and unable to see the obvious?
Let's see, just a couple of examples, one recent, one not so recent: 1. Let Teddy Kennedy write the education bill early in Bush's presidency. Teddy ain't exactly John Birch society material. Sucking up to the left? Absolutely, since Bush was readily willing to chuck one of the pillars of his original plan -- school choice in the name of "bipartisanship"
2. When John Murtha made his traitorous statements yesterday regarding the attempt to assure the defeat of our troops, as well as the "non-binding" resolution demonstrating to the terrorists our country's divided house and that some are willing to surrender to the terrorists, all that the White House could come up with was Tony Snow's comment to the press, saying the administration does not doubt Congress' patriotism but cautioned against denying funding to the military effort. That is hardly the makings of a strong stand against the left and closer to sucking up to them.
Other examples abound, including stands on the border and willingess to accept numerous other leftist domestic plans. Signing that egregious violation of the first amendment (campaign finance reform bill) serves as another example.

There are many occasions where I have disagreed with Bush's positions. Just because he was the best of the bad choices available doesn't make him perfect. While Bush is more conservative than the alternatives that were available, that doesn't make him a conservative.

Well, I don't understand the lack of "thought processes" of those who can't grasp the scientific difference between opinion, hypothesis, and theory ... particulary those who continually engage in a demonstrable and unscientific confusion of correlation and causation.

Otherwise known as "Statistics of small numbers" ... while you're add it, add up the volcanoes and buffalo farts throughout history and see where they lead you.

while you're add it,

I should know better than to read one of your posts with a mouthful of water. I'm willing to bet that a quality buffalo fart could keep a Coleman lantern going for a while.
But never mind those buffalo- and volcanic gasses. 4 TacoBell MexiMelts and we're talking Krakatoa.

Maybe so, but a buffalo burger is totally tasteless, IMHO.

Even living in SoCal, I'm no authority on Tex/Mex or even authentic Mexican food, but TacoBell, give me a break.

Actually, reminds me of a lead singer or two I've known.
When the band bus stops at a TacoBell, whoever has to stand behind a lead singer during the next show automatically gets flatulent duty pay.
... and all along you thought the drum riser was invented to give the drummer better beaver shots in the front row!

I would think the drummer would prefer to be lower -- doesn't gas rise?

It also diffuses in direct proportion with the distance from the nozzle. You want it straight, or with a chaser?
