    June 22, 2006 Washington, D.C.-Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Chairman of the Committee on Environment and Public Works commented on today’s congressionally commissioned review by the National Academy of Sciences that shows that Dr. Michael Mann’s “hockey stick” study was flawed, specifically refuting some of its most often-cited conclusions.

    Timothy, it is obvious by the fact that you have started, what, 4 or 5 threads on global warming, that you have a burr up you you-know-what over this. How about making ONE lucid thread, and tell us what you think, backed up by logic, rather than constant appeals to authority.

    And again I ask, doesn't good stewardship over the planet mean we don't assume anything, and do our best to maintain what God has given us?

    By contrast, the main product of Washington, D.C.
    is hot air.

    I note 'hot air' directly contributes to 'Global Warming' :wavey:

    Yeah, but how does it happen? And how and why does it change?

    Most importantly, is there anything we can do to mitigate harmful changes?

    Not according to this....

    PARIS (AP) -- Scientists from 113 countries issued a landmark report Friday saying they have little doubt global warming is caused by man, and predicting that hotter temperatures and rises in sea level will "continue for centuries" no matter how much humans control their pollution.....

    So what now, folks who say God won't care for us, so we have to hold hands with Christ-denying evolutionist atheists ? How do we save the world ?

    Of course, the majority of scientists aren't atheists, and yes, if you want to get the straight stuff about the subject, you have to ask scientists and get the consensus from people who actually know about it.

    That's how it works.

    Galatian, you are telling us God lied. Forgive me for not believing you.

    Nowhere in scripture can you back up your position. Save the world from humans, because other humans say we have to. It is not a Christian stance, and it certainly betrays your supposed libertarian beliefs.

    Open up yer bible, and show me.

    Good stewardship, yes. And don't assume anything, ditto on that as well. That means, to me, don't assume Al Gore knows everything. Don't stop American production over something that can't be proven. Or even agreed upon. Even the GWers argue amongst themselves, and if we're to believe what they say, they said today that we can't do anything, anyway.

    Um, I hate to break it to you, but we're probably all going to die one way or another. It's in the next life that we'll be taken care of, one way or the other.

    Yeah, there's words to that effect in scripture.

    So my question stands, since it's now hopeless, can I take my SUV keys outta the safe ?

    Nope. I have no idea why you'd want to falsely accuse me like that. Everyone here knows I didn't. Doing that kind of thing might seem like a good idea when you're upset, but then you have to live with the consequences. Honesty remains the best policy. Try to stick with it from now on.

    I forgive you for not telling the truth about what I said.

    Global warming isn't in scripture. There are a lot of things that are true, that aren't in scripture.

    So you're going to make up something else I didn't say, and claim I said it? Why is no one surprised?

    It's the truth. A Christian should never be afraid of the truth. That's a suggestion for you.

    How is acknowledging global warming not a libertarian idea? You've confused acknowledging the truth, with saying that something particular must be done with it. I did the former, but not the latter. Not that it seems to matter to you.

    If you spent more time reading and thinking about what I wrote, and less time making up false stories about what I think, you'd have come out of this much better.

    Shame on you.

    What does evolution and atheism have to do with the topic? We all share the planet; atheists and theists, evolutionists and creationists, CEOs and hobos. We had better work with everyone to insure we take care of the earth's bountiful resources.

    Show me some scripture to support it. Otherwise, I have to assume the scripture forbidding it holds true. I'm not buying it.

    Shame on me.:laugh: From a man with no shame.

    Don't lie, and people won't think badly of you. Since you declined to substantiate your false accusation, I guess that's the closest thing to an apology you can manage.

    So be it.
