DailyKos Poll on Climate Gate

Cap and Trade is dead. Even the hard core left is no longer believes the science.

The full climate scandal post is coming soon. If you have positioned your portfolio to take advantage of Cap and Trade, I suggest rethinking your strategy.

(Hint: If you haven't seen the source code and programmer notes, you are in for a real treat!)

Seriously...do you think it matters that the world is cooling when we are moving forward  with global warming????

You think it mattered whether there was WMD for us to shock and awe a nation that opposed Al Quaida???

Do you really think UAE is going to bail out Dubai?????

Who cares what the polls say anymore......there has been a coup and it is called the zombulator and it is spreading worldwide.

That's wild. I am not a Kos reader, but when I went looking for the poll on the kos website I did not find it. When I searched on Google for the title of the associated article I was taken to a link that looked like kos but was not exactly the same as other kos articles?

I also noticed your poll has a total of 92 votes. I skimmed past a kos poll asking if pilgrims would support a robust public option that had 5500 votes and a poll concerning the importance of pie (apple pumpkin, etc) that had over 6000 votes. It surprises me that kos readers don't care enough about global warming to click on a vote.

Do you think something nefarious is up with the poll you found?

There you go, I found it when I searched the author. Still needs a few more votes to be able to claim it is representative of "the left" though.

It's just as funny to watch the Left try all the "that's not really the problem" contortions as the right.

This is hilarious. Here we have Dave in Qatar (DQ) quoting from the Daily Kos! But just so people notice, this was an ultra small  self-selected sample that followed one of the initial news stories.

But note that it occurs in an article entitled "Climategate, the NONControversy of the Moment" Since the Daily Kos is such an unimpeachable authority, no doubt you will be interested in their reporting on new developments: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/11/24/151333/43

Give it up DQ. This climategate turkey is cooked and stuffed. It is important only in the sweaty imaginations of you and a few other right-wingers whose goal it is to confuse the public.

People with a genuine interest in this subject will pay close attention to the many technical papers coming out in advance of the Copenhagen conference. Collectively they demonstrate with great clarity and consistency why climate changeis worthy of our concern. Report this comment

How many people that responded to that poll specialize in climate research, or at least have an advanced degree in environmental science of some sort?  Speaking of which, how many people in this thread have that sort of background.

I'd be careful about trusting people who so obviously have an agenda (on both sides).

I think it's clear that he's got an agenda here and is willing to pull anything, no matter how obviously false it is, in order to support his case.  It's the alstrynomics of climatology.

The point of my last post was that DailyKos is garbage with a blatant bias on a good day, so the only reason someone would use it as a talking point is if they also have an agenda.  It's like trying to understand football by watching the cheerleaders.

What man caused this?   The eruption of Mt Tambora, Indonesia in 1815 released 200 times the volume of magma as Mt St Helens and a crater nearly 5 miles wide and 1250 feet deep. The following year 1816 became known worldwide as 'the year without a summer."  The cool climate led to crop failures and famine worldwide.   info from about.com:geography

I'm looking forward to some in-depth discussion about the Cap and Trade initiatives which, for the record, I'm not in favor of at all.

I am with you to some extent Dude, though I think it is prudent to do something. Cap and trade has drawbacks. A carbon tax is more straightforward.

Pancho, the effect of volcanos--Tambora, Pinatubo, Mt. St. Helen's--is well known by climate scientists and they try to account for it.

PabloinMich,

What stake do you have in global warming? Why would you argue for it, when the clear fraud of the main proponents has been so clearly exposed (there I go again - pardon the pun)?

Try to predict the next eruption for me would ya? Yellowstone has been moving and going off every 640,000 years or so ... but can any model out there tell me if it's in the am or the pm? I have some people coming by in the afternoon to do some yardwork, so please make sure it's the am. Thanks.

I'm thinking of a new blog ...
