No thanks Al, we'll stick with the tiger

When Laurie David approached the National Science Teacher's Association (NSTA) to offer 50,000 free DVD copies of Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth she was surpised by the answer: “Thanks but no thanks.” In a recent Washington Post editorial titled “Science a la Joe Camel,” David, who is one of the producers on Gore's movie, explains that the rebuke was due to concern over that other “unnecessary risk upon the [NSTA] capital campaign, especially certain targeted supporters.” Any guesses about who those “targetted supporters” might be? I know, it's getting old, but I'm sure you guessed it: ExxonMobil.

A Sure-Fire Recipe For Global Bankruptcy.

Two skeptics at the Cato Institute now argue that it's wasteful to spend money addressing the climate crisis because succeeding generations will be so much wealthier that the cost to them will be negligible. What they don't tell us is that if we don't deal with this issue a.s.a.p., succeeding generations will be bankrupt by mid-century.
