Re: 2 quick points (that I felt needed to be emphasized)

1) I agree with Phil Dustan.  In the end, it really doesn't matter who 
is right or wrong, or even what is really causing "Global Warming" 
(though, as a scientist it pains me to say that).  We can argue over the 
details all we want, but arguing doesn't really help anyone that has to 
meet Global Warming face to face as it blows down their front door (for 
the fortunate people that have a front door to hide behind in the first 

2) I also agree with Lara Hansen.  We can no longer trust the media or 
government to properly (or even correctly) explain science to the 
general public.  There are too many hidden agendas, and unfortunately, 
some scientists seem to be getting wrapped up in their own hidden 
agendas.  The rest of us really have to get out and learn to speak about 
our science in a language that everyone can 1) UNDERSTAND and 2) stay 
awake long enough to get the message across.
