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.

Ithink, please provide attribution when you use somebody else's work. I understand how Stillhere, whose may not have an academic background, might not know how to attribute.

You, on the other hand, claim to have graded a lot of English papers. So I expect you to source your material.

Ithink posted, ...the Energy Department announced $3.4 billion in smart grid grants, Of the total, more than $560 million went to utilities with which Silver Spring has contracts."

So "Gore's venture capital firm invested in a small company" that had contracts with utilities who received grants for smart grids.

And Ithink expands this to charge that Gore received "huge government grants."

Without seeing any evidence of how much money went to Gore, I can't accept Ithink's charge.

And I don't even like Gore. I do like truth, however.

See theres the problem , you righties talk like Al Gore put that money straight into his pocket when all he did was invest in renewable energy companies ! Seems like the smart investment to me !

Fourteen green-tech firms in which Gore invested received or directly benefited from more than $2.5 billion in loans, grants and tax breaks, part of President Obama’s historic push to seed a U.S. renewable-energy industry with public money.

And just who says these documentaries are "false "? I'd say if you really care about accuracy then you shouldn't be watching Faux ! They have a 28% accuracy rating !

Can we see your proof of these "huge grants " tinker ?

"It is also wrong to get huge government grants because of politics and like minded powerful friends."

Two questions.

1.Is it wrong for anybody to use political connections to obtain government favors?

2. What "huge government grants" went to Al Gore? You did post something about a company getting a grant, and that a company in which Gore invested did work for the grantee. But where was Gore the grantee?

You don't know anything about"your" republican platform, do you, harry?

The point of the story is that the investment magically was quickly givn huge grants.

What does Al Gore's venture capitalism have to do with the Republican platform? Is there a plank in the Republican platform that says Democrats shouldn't be allowed to profit from free-market principles?

Producing money making false documentaries to scare people is wrong. It is also wrong to get huge government grants because of politics and like minded powerful friends.

Ithink's wrote that "(Gore's) venture capital firm invested in a small company."

I have issues with Gore, but being a capitalist isn't one of.them. In fact, I like to see liberals become capitalists. Being capitalists might help them see things more objectively.

Are you supporting your republican party platform, harry?

I'm not a fan of Al Gore by any stretch of the imagination.

Still and all, he's a private citizen who has invested money to make money, and I see nothing wrong with that.

Why are you so very afraid to answer a simple question ? So NO this isn't going away and you can try to ignore , deny, deflect all you right-wing minions of Faux want , but it will be right here waiting for you !
