Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Left supports abortion, left supports anything that produces electricity if it's not oil, coal or nuclear. Burning aborted fetuses to make electricity must make their day. Simple logic is not an unfounded myth. Little earlier pop culture that has a chance to be true: "Soylent green is people!!" the ultimate leftist recycle.

You know the scene in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy where Frodo while in Rivendell Bilbo visits him. Bilbo gets a glimpse of the one ring and goes crazy over it wanting it back.

Yep when Obama got elected that was how they reacted.

Now I'm just gonna sit back and see if anyone makes fun of me for referencing pop culture.

Truthfully. Obama is like Bilbo. He took the rightwings(Gollum) One Ring.

For your information though I must say the perfect solution to finding a near inexhaustible energy source is easy to make.

All one has to do is erect a 1000 foot tall Obama statue in each red state and put a ring of wind turbines around it and the collective "wind" coming from conservatives will give us energy aplenty.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! LOL!

"See where the left is getting a two for one by burning waste to generate electricity and the waste contains aborted fetuses imported from Canada. I think they have found the perfect bio fuel."

I would call this an unfounded accusation.

But I understand...gotta kick the muds around right?

Read myth's post about the " right", Kendall. It is best to know what you are talking about.

Random, I read that,too. Not surprising. Babies are just worthless fuel to some on the left.

And how was the Right misrepresented? You just came on here with an implosion of wacky bizarre baloney and no facts.

Yep, when a misrepresentation of the "right" is being blabbed about, it involves me.

And of course Ithink had to join in.

So this is what a wacky bizarre implosion of baloney and no facts looks like. Carry on, comrades.

“I bet they pay close attention to those concerns and then take what they have learned and then take that message and amplify it to keep the outrage boiling and then sit back and rake in the money.”

Of course they do. Boiling outrage sells, as any successful screenwriter will tell you, and successful cable news shows use the same tactic.

To get a snapshot of what I am talking about in a kinda sorta way.

Consider Sarah Palin.

Why did she stop being governor?

Could it be that she seen that it was more lucrative for her to go off and rake in the money by speaking,making book deals etc?

Pretty scary when you think about her almost becoming Vice President.

I wonder how much John McCain regrets pulling her out of the woodwork?

Another thing thats telling is that the right doesn't really have a plan for any of the issues facing this country.

All they really do is sit back and scream NO!

Then when you add in the vested interests that send out the marching orders as to what the "party" message should be....its very interesting.

Being that we have a capitalist system with companies that use focus groups to try and pin down what their consumers want...I can't help but wonder how much of the rightwing media isn't the result of them capitalising on the concerns of conservatives and then selling them snakeoil.

I bet they pay close attention to those concerns and then take what they have learned and then take that message and amplify it to keep the outrage boiling and then sit back and rake in the money.

To further elaborate on what I said I think one should consider this.

Money to be had by catering to a specific demographic.

Given the amount of stuff put forth by "news" outlets like Fox I have to call in to question what they say.

Some of what they say is bordering on insane. And I have to question whether or not the people who report this news and put out the commentary we see on Fox actually agrees with it. And when you consider the extremely partisan bent of most of it...it just strikes me as being rather tailored to fit perfectly a targeted mindset.

The game of individuals like that is to by design...deny and question every single detail.

I have serious reservations about them even believing what they say themselves.

I think they are just taking orders.

Then Gutfeld and Bolling kept going on about how the temps haven't went up steadily as the CO2 has, though ignoring the fact that the previous 16 years was hotter on average than the previous hundred. This isn't a simple tit for tat. Only the ignorant would think that.

Beckel pointed out that there have been exaggerations by some scientists and that is true. The ladies pointed out some of the politics that is involved in the debate. But Gutfeld and Bolling were every bit the ignorant Far Right stereotype.

Thank goodness Andrea is pleasant to look at because The Five was so annoying today. Beckel produced a graph that NASA produced about the increase in CO2 and that idiot Gutfeld couldn't get it through his head that not every rise in CO2 was due to humanity. He just kept laughing like an idiot. Gutfeld did get him to stop for a moment by declaring it was NASA that came up with the info. He wouldn't dare say anything against NASA though the coward.

The Navy's Seawater-To-Fuel System: Can I Use It In My Car?

Google that thar headline and read it.

Anyone want to make bets on long its going to take Republicans to deep six that research because its a "waste of taxpayer money"?

Probably not long before the oil company lobbyists pay off some "representatives" and have it stopped.
