* Nothing to see!

Just because the same people who funded the cigarette-to-cancer denial in 1980s today are funding AGW-denial, doesn't mean they can't be right!

So what if they're in bed with oil companies? Capitalism isn't evil, as long as we're benefiting from it!

Regulation is ALWAYS BAD.

* "Climategate" are less than 5 e-mails, completely stripped out of context.
YouTube - 6. Climate Change -- Those hacked e-mails (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nnVQ2fROOg)

* The easiest shortcut when you're not an expert to scientific arguments, is to see how good the "denialist" arguments are

There's a difference between skepticism & denial.
Skepticism defines a criteria, when met, would concede to be convinced.
Denial is unconditional, always moving the goalpost, and never deciding when something is true, regardless of what's shown, even when the same standards wouldn't be applied elsewhere.

Did you say Petition Project?

As a final note
* I disagree with regulation, but I don't doubt the science of AGW
* I agree Al Gore is a hypocrite & opportunist
* I don't believe hybrid or electric cars will necessarily be better for air
(electricity in US is made by coal)
* I'm merely pointing out that AGW deniers are profiteers too (only for those who think that profiteering makes a claim wrong)
