No Bill Clinton jokes

I promise. Monica's not going to be there either, I hear.

Hey, Rick- Those improvements your making. Do they include renovating cemetaries for your core voting block?

Who do you think the authors of this poll are backing? The only one not mentioned was a carpetbagger.

Stem cell research, it's really not about the money!

This is the kind of "guns -for-cash" program they need to do more often.

WARNING- watching porn can be psychologicaly damaging.

And I just had to include Cartman in this link.

And speaking of self-centerd selfish d!ckheads, how much do you think this study of the obvious cost?

America, what a country!

And one last one from the U.K. I thought Torchwood was fiction.

I know it's not Saturday

But I had to share

Good frigging grief!

People actually believe this cr@p?

I got a link from someone who I won't embarrass by linking to (unless she wants me to) about Texas powerplants.
See, we're trying to keep our electricity plentiful and cheap, unlike other states that use the Socialistic approach to their energy needs.

There is a certain group of greenies opposed to these plants because they'll put out CO2 (because their scrubbers remove almost all other pollutants), that's bad according to the Environmental Defense Fund.

The Environmental Defense Fund is one of the big dogs in the greenie movement, but still can't seem to use what are commonly known as "facts". Instead they rely on misrepresentations and emotions to convince the believers out there.

I'm not environmental scientist. My higher education was in the electronics field, not in a general college setting, and I didn't take courses in either English (as you can tell from this blog) or science. I do however have common sense, and can do research by myself. Which brings me to their 2006 annual report(PDF, sorry)- put out there for God and everyone.
It's 36 pages of environmental fluff and misleading statements.
Including such misrepresentations as...

1985- "Convinced Federal regulators to phase out leaded gasoline, leading to a dramatic decline in childhood lead poisoning."(page 5) The non-scientist in me is saying "WHAT?? That's not the same kind of lead! They're completely chemically different.

1975- "Our economic model leads California regulators to call for energy efficiency, rather than new coal and nuclear power plants."(p. 5 again) Yeah, and we saw how well that worked at the turn of THIS century.

On page 7 they show a Photoshopped power plant on an obviously sub-zero a winter day where the water vapor is dramatic in it's


As a truck driver, I have to admit to being sensitive to their photoshopping of huge, black diesel exhaust clouds on page 13.

The last time I remember seeing those black clouds (except at tractor pulls) was somewhere around the early '80s. Even the trucks in 'Smokey and the Bandit' weren't belching out as much as they added.

I'm sorry, but there's 36 pages of this cr@p. It's PDF, so I can't copy and paste. Just go look at what they're putting out. The altered reality makes me want to bang my head into the wall.

But, you know what the really bad thing is?
They're brainwashing our kids into believing it. They're not teaching critical thinking in school, they're too busy pushing the emotional buttons.

They're the same kind of people who sent this little @sshole out do supposedly guilt me into buying overpriced ecofriendly cr@p, so I'd feel better about the sun and the earths rotational variations heating the earth.

Learn to swim, kid.

Now I know what we're getting for B.a.G. day

Da Judge!

Here come da judge.
Here come da judge....

Everything you want in a gun,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,with flairs!

...and yes he's on my blogroll.

People still BUY Sony cr@p?

I'd have though that after Sony's massive computer hijack attempt, that NO-ONE with any sense would trust Sony again.

I guess there are enough people out there that just beg for someone to take their money.

And complain when the cr@p they begged for isn't right...

Stolen from Hotair.


This post started off to be one of those meme's that seem to be getting a start on guy blogs. the one about the best and worst vehicle you ever had.

Then the idea morphed into the ugliest vehicles purposely designed to look that way.

The first on the list would have to be the 1997-2006 F-150 body style- Gawd what a butt-ugly truck , unless you're a girl-or metrosexual that like those swoopy soft feminine lines.

Next was the Hummer, in all it's 'compensational' glory. I know they're (well the H1) supposed to be the civilian version of the *real* thing, and the modern day equivalent to the CJ series. OK, I'll give you that for the H1- BUT -the H2 and H3 gimme a break!
All you're paying that money for is a Suburban or Tahoe with a boob job.
Get real. Especially you H3 owners, nothing says gay wannabe more than a cut-rate badly designed knock-off of a military vehicle. With all the flash and pretty things added to make it look *tuff*, even though everyone knows the only time it's going off the road intentionally is when it gets washed on the lawn.
And tell me, you couldn't afford an H1 OR H2; and looked at a full length mirror and still had your 'problem', why did you have to add a 12" lift to it?
Dude! It's bad enough that you had to get the H3, but to get a cheap, backyard lift done by the local high school kids.....that's too much!

OHHhh, and when they bolted the axles back on, they didn't get them true. I don't know if you noticed when you're going down the road (since your too busy on the cell phone) that you're crabbing down the road about 3" off.
But Light needs to do a "Real Men of Genius" ad about you.

Where was I? Oh yeah ugly vehicles...
The newest Fords don't do a whole lot for me either- guess I won't be buying any Fords made after the 1995 body style.

How about an entire decade of ugly vehicles? I give you the 80's. Not only were they ugly on the outside, but they ran like cr@p, too. Except for the Ford trucks, THAT was a good truck (well unless you count the body rusting from the inside out).

How about the AMC Pacer? Remember that fishbowl?

The '56 GMC pick-up wasn't a real winner either; and speaking of GMC, when did they decide to make it the luxury version of the Chevy? Have you compared prices? Daym, and they're the ugly cousin too boot.

I seem to remember more, but can't seem to get the right make to bring up in my searches, so this'll have to do for now.

Remember, if you need to compensate for something, get a cut rate H3 and have the local H.S. kid do a bad lift job so you can be "manly".

It's Islamo-sabbath kids!

That means today we learn about another famous pig!

This one really doesn't have a name, but the way he's portrayed fits right into the way the MoHAMmids' followers want to treat you.

As an added bonus, you'll find their version of the perfect world described in William Goldings book.

A Boston modeling agency?

I hope she isn't one of their models.
But, then that would go to show just how advanced they are in not caring about how unhot their girls are....unless it's a different kind of 'talent' agency.

Ohh, and I'd hafta guess that she really liked that cop.

Tim Hardaway hates gays!

And after the usual eruption of outrage and over the top indignation...
Funny, I don't remember hearing about NBA Basketball stdiums being burnt down, or "Heat" jerzies being burnt up. No throwing of high heels, and Tim had the sense not to turn himself in to the re-education camps.

THIS response, however could have more impact than all the in-your-face homophile legislation to date.

Uh-oh,,,, maybe they're catching on that you get more flies with honey...

Are you wantin' even MORE Anna Nicole Smith?


Never mind, just go here and wade around youself.

I was going to do an Anna post but couldn't stand anymore of those clips...

Like I said, go wade around those clips if you want to, just be sure you've had your shots.

OHhhhhh,,,,and since were at You-tube- we can't forget to visit LonelyGirl15- can we?

Two questions

  1. What were they thinking? Or were they?
  2. How did they get their drivers license?

Ok, three questions-

3. Do they feel stoopid?

I'd bet my next paycheck that cell phones were in volved in almost all of them...

There has GOT to be a way

to get in on this scam.

I'm thinking about buying about 15 acres between Hondo and Bandera for some hunting...
how about I sell "Carbon Offsets" in the form of seedlings?

Plow down the Cedar and replant with ---OOOhhhhh----- organically grown fruit!
Yessss! Get enviroweiniees to buy my orchard stock, and then not do jack-chit until I harvest. THEN sell it for MORE than the intensly cultivated produce. As a big plus, they won't care what it looks like,,,because it's "Enviromentally friendly"!

(UPDATE 10:45 AM)
OK, how about this? Plant fruit trees that deer like?...AND sell the "Free Range" pork from the wild pigs that are free for the taking?

I'm liking this scam enviro=friendly thing better and better.
Now I just have to learn how to talk like an enviro-wienie without bursting into laughter.

Good news for Hillary!

According to Wikipedia, the term "carpetbagger" is no longer considered derogatory.

Unless, I guess, it's decribing a Democrat...

No wonder everyone thought she had a talent......MIND CONTROL

I mean, LOOK at the crevases on Brits melon. It's uglier than Telly Savalas's.




Please make it STOP!

I found this new Liberal boycot over at John Hawkins place.

"Consumers are asked to withhold their spending for seven days, beginning on Sunday April 15 and lasting until Sunday April 22, 2007. Do NOT shop corporate outlets Minimize use of oil and gas. Carpool: bus, bike or walk. If you buy, BUY LOCALLY. Plan Ahead and Stock Up"

Ok,,, that looks like a good uncrowed week to go shopping.

Plus April 15th is Buy-a-Gun-Day!!!
Buy a Gun Day

Help me out here

I saw in a(n) unremembered blog, a link to a website in Oz about ummm......assisting Libs to "help" mitigate the damage of man-made Global Climate Change.

It sounds good to me, and I'd like your help on the copy, I might even share the result$.

Basically, they said since you're stuck in the regressive America who refuses to sign-on to the Kyoto thing- that you could contribute $8 to a fund that would go to mitigate the greenhouse gasses somewhere else.


Ok, so my idea is for those on the East and left coast to contribute to making us backwards residents in Hondo, Tx of flyover country energy efficient by contributing to upgrading our energy using appliances and to replace gas-guzzling older model vehicles with newer, more efficient ones.

The replaced vehicle would go to replace an even MORE energy inefficient product (say a 78 F-350 dually) and get it off the road. The same goes for my a washing machine, A/C units, and many other energy using appliances.

All I need is ideas to pull on wallet heartstrings of those predisposed to help the cause, and any ideas on free websites that cater to those folks.

Why is it that Liberals only want to allow choice when it comes to killing babies removing 'unviable tissue masses'?

I just got forced to move to the *NEW and IMPROVED* blogger.

Because, you know- Liberals know better than you what you need.
I also had a chance to re-read their ToS and noted the future muzzeling of dissent.

2. Proper Use. You agree that you are responsible for your own use of the Service, for any posts you make, and for any consequences thereof. You agree that you will use the Service in compliance with all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations, including any laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from your country of residence and all United States export control laws.

So, when Google gets big enough,,,,,,,Why isn't a Liberal internet monopoly as bad as a Telephone monopoly? Or, say an energy company making a profit?.........they'll be able to "modify the Content policy" to gag any blog that doesn't toe the Liberal line. Right?

Am I wrong? Look at the way Google is using it's search engine to push their chosen sites and to ignore those they disagree with.
You-tube, the same. I'd have to say that there's an overwhelming majority of clips either anti-american or pro-terrorist. Anything their Liberal, terrorist adoring audience disagrees with is pulled so fast theirs a vacume.

I'll be seriously looking for another site that costs what this blog is worth.

Assault weapons through history

Kevin has a post that finally got me moving to make this short history of assault weapons... just to keep things in perspective.

This was most likely the first type of assault weapon in history.

Next was probably something alone these lines...

Then they found a way to kill at a distance.

Adding a handle made the killing more efficient.

Then we get into metalergy.

...And the science of aerodynamics!

Which came before the science of pyrotechnics and ballistics.

With firearms used on both sides of good and evil.

Is some arbitrary idea that adding a bananna clip, or making it black , or ugly more deadly than long and lean?

Assault weapons were'nt always used by the military only, or for killing human beings. Most make good hunting rifles.

Because when you boil it all down, it's not the weapon it's self that's dangerous, it's the one using it.

I just *KNOW* you've talked to this guy

Mujibar was trying to get a job in India.

The Personnel Manager said, "Mujibar, you have
passed all the tests, except one. Unless you pass
it you cannot qualify for this job."

Mujibar said, "I am ready"

The manager said, "Make a sentence using the
words Yellow, Pink and Green."

Mujibar thought for a few minutes and said,
"Mister manager, I am ready"

The manager said, "Go ahead."

Mujibar said, "The telephone goes green, green,
and I pink it up, and say, 'Yellow, this is Mujibar.'"

Mujibar now works as a technician at a call
center for computer problems.

No doubt you have spoken to him. I have.

This'll have to do for a while- got something on my mind, don't know if there'll be a post about it, or not.
At least I'm not completely p*ssed off any more.

Now i'm getting spam from a thing I put in Craigslist.

NO! I don't want to buy v1agra.
I'm not the slightest bit interested.

Go away.
Stop bothering me.
Ron Paul (RINO-Tx) Had this bit ofB.S. explaination for his YES vote on the Terrorist Encoragement No confidence Stab our troops Anti-surge" vote.

This resolution, unfortunately, does not address the disaster in Iraq. Instead, it seeks to appear opposed to the war while at the same time offering no change of the status quo in Iraq. As such, it is not actually a vote against a troop surge. A real vote against a troop surge is a vote against the coming supplemental appropriation that finances it. I hope all of my colleagues who vote against the surge today will vote against the budgetary surge when it really counts: when we vote on the supplemental.

The biggest red herring in this debate is the constant innuendo that those who don’t support expanding the war are somehow opposing the troops. It’s nothing more than a canard to claim that those of us who struggled to prevent the bloodshed and now want it stopped are somehow less patriotic and less concerned about the welfare of our military personnel.

You can read the rest of his double-speak at the link above.
Ron, It's not only a slap in the face to the military; it's also encouraging the terrrorists who are watching the forces of anti-Americanism weaken our resolve.

But don't question his patriotism, Or his concern for troop well being.
Because if he were President, we wouldn't have to worry about things like foriegn entanglements.

Happy Sabbath, Muslimbs

Since this is the "Year of the Pig" I guess this is a good day to tell you about

All I can say is WTF?


Oh, he's German...or something.
Why would anyone do this to an Opal?


Oh, yeah-he's German, or something.

It's not like they have *real* trucks over there...

You may wonder why I'm posting so early- considering I work at night.
Some self centered individual decided that 6:30AM was a good time to be running and playing with the dogs. I'll most likely be up until 3AM now. Or about 3 hours after I drop off my last load.

If they're against it, it must be good

The Texas Branch of the A.C.L.U is against Texas House Bill 29 which is trying to do *something* at least about the anchor baby scam that illegals are using to defraud American taxpayers.

It's hypocritically amusing to see that the ACLU is using it's 'love' of the Constitution to sway public opinion.

HB 28 would take away several state benefits from children born in Texasto parents who entered the United Statesin violation of Federal law. It is in fact also an attempt to set up a legal challenge to the current interpretation of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The ACLU of Texas opposes HB 28 because it:
-Ignores American legal tradition and disrespects the Constitution
-Will unnecessarily cost the state of Texas money
-Punishes innocent children for the choices of their parents.

These are the same people who use the Constitution to force their brand of anti-American values down our throats no matter how much it costs -AND- they get our tax money for doing it. So I guess I can understand where they're coming from on the "cost the state of Texas money", since they'll be the ones sueing the state for whatever they can strongarm out of us.

I'd like to remind everyone that the original intent was to ensure that the recently freed slaves (of 1865) weren't discriminated against by the same Democratic party that has been using and abusing them ever since they've been in America.
Whatever happened to the Liberal view that the Constitution was a 'living, breathing document' and that 'it needs to change with the times'?
The Constitution has been changed before, and it will be again. This wouldn't be the first time an amendment was repealed for the good of the country.

It's time to look at modifying the 14th Amendment and deny automatic citizenship to those who's first act in the country is breaking our laws.

H/T to Murray

She has to have a place on my blogroll

Right thinking girl just distilled Anna Nicole-smith down to one sentence in a post of rememberences.

Dressed in a black that hinted of Baudelaire and Sartre, not of a grieving widow trying to gain sympathy in a courtroom, she won a Supreme Court victory that stunned legal scholars as well as tabloid reporters who were thrilled to learn that Washington DC is as much a make-believe place as Hollywood. It was a place where a multi-millionaire stripper could win justice. ‘A deal’s a deal’, the court seemed to say, and handed Smith the opportunity to claim millions of her deceased 90 year old husband’s fortune. In trailer parks all over America, little girls grinned at the teevee and for a moment, believed that dreams can come true.

That's enough time wasing

Happy Valentines Day from Huey Lewis.

(And a special note to Viacom.)
Way to go for positive PR.

That's it!

I'm f'ing tired of the Leftist slant I hear every frigging time I hear the news.
I'm tired of hearing about some drug addicted slut who's ONLY claim to fame was a pair of silocone enhanced set of modified sweat glands. (boobs for the biologically challenged)

From now on my ONLY source of news is going to be here.

And aside from C/Ds, music from here.

OHhhhhh,,,,,,and since they're already doing the 2008 pre-pre-election coverage, I think I'll just fill my ears with expanding foam and stick a fork in my eyes.

How the worm turns

This Republican had this to say about a Democratic President:
...who defeated 81 Democrats in a procedural vote on an amendment to send a routine resolution back to committee with instructions for the committee to add the words "a war unnecessarily and unconstitutionally begun by the President of the United States." The amendment passed, but the bill never reemerged from committee and was never finally voted upon.[13]

Lincoln damaged his reputation by an intemperate speech in the House. He announced, "God of Heaven has forgotten to defend the weak and innocent, and permitted the strong band of murderers and demons from hell to kill men, women, and children, and lay waste and pillage the land of the just."

Peacenick? Nahhh, just parisan at that time.
But he changed-
When the spring campaigns all turned into bloody stalemates, Lincoln strongly supported Grant's strategy of wearing down Lee's army at the cost of heavy Union casualties. Lincoln easily defeated efforts to deny his renomination, and selected Andrew Johnson, a War Democrat from the Southern state of Tennessee as his running mate in order to form a broader coalition. They ran on the new Union Party ticket; it was a coalition of Republicans and War Democrats.

Republicans across the country had the jitters in August, fearing that Lincoln would be defeated. Acknowledging those fears, Lincoln wrote and signed a pledge that, if he should lose the election, he would nonetheless defeat the Confederacy by an all-out military effort before turning over the White House.[28]

But, the more they change, the more they also stay the same.

Thank you Abe.

Firefox cure

I had been having problems with F/F on the main computer, well, since I had to restore it from a trojan.
I found out from the warning on Majorgeeks that the problem could be from F/F it's self. That was probably why I was having so many problems loading pages.

I uinstalled that version and installed version from here (top of the "old version" list), since it works well on the laptop.
If you downloaded version and are having problems, try an earlier version- it could really help. It will remember your settings, so it's not that big of a deal.

Now, back to working on my pending paternity attempt.

Your moslimb friends explained

In pictures.

Stolen from Miriam.

Hi, please drive friendly

Speaking of Police vehicles, I wonder how Bloomingfield Hills gets the money for these?.
I don't know which state these patrol units are used in.

Probably California...

...And speaking of a reality biased populations , willing to be panicked about anything...
Don't talk about your favorite gun website in public high school bathrooms in Main.

When will they take *NO* for an answer?

Here we go again with the "newest and even MORE improved" dollar coin. It's the one on top (I know it's confusing- all the changes to our money)

The newest is going to get the same acceptance as the Susan B. and the Sacajawea that flopped so well in the last 20 years.
So, how much will THIS failure cost? I'm sure it will be more than the other two, because they are going to introduce a new coin every three months. I wish I had stock in that engraving company.

Not to be bringing in politics, but I wonder if they're based in California?

I hate to subject you to another Anna Nicole story

But, I have to confess.
Really, it has absolutly nothing to do with the $460 Million,,,or is it $89 Million?

But, I was unfaithful to my wife and had to give in to Annas' begging.
Her infant daughter is mine. I accept all responsibility for taking car of her finances.

I'm sorry hunny, now we'll have to move into a humungous estate,,,if you can forgive me for giving the poor girls mom some physical attention, since everyone around her only was interested in her mind.

Time for a pop quiz

One question, multiple choice.

Who said this?:
But he denied pressuring the Pentagon. "I don't need to pressure them. I just tell them what they need to do,''

And this?:
They're making a mistake when they leak it because she decides on allocations for them,'' referring to the Pentagon budget.

A- John Kerry (D- Viet Nam vet, he was there...really!)

B- Dick Cheney (R- so mean he shoots his own friends)

C- Ted Kennedy (D- sole survivor of the battle of Cappaquiddik)

D- John Murtha (D- ex Marine)

E- George BusHitler? (R ex T.A.N.G. and the most power hungry 'selected' leader anywhere or when)

Guess, then read.

I HATE Adobe

I'm *trying* to get started on the taxes.

I just added up our gross income and am surprised that -considering how much money we DON'T have, that we're slightly above the median income.

Anyway, I'm on the U.S. official Gestapo site looking for the free e-file.
After finding it, I realized that in order to use find the free file sites, I need to know my adjusted gross income.
OK, I'll just download the forms and pre-do it.

I have the wrong Adobe (reader 5- I think), and need to download at least '6'.
I went to their site and have spent the last 30-or-so minutes watching Adobe take over my computer..........and thank you for asking, but *NO* I don't want the automatic Photoshop download, too.
Every Singh in India must have had a hand in designing the "Latest-and-greatest' Adobe ever.
...Until next week.

Now to download the tax forms so I can pre-do them before doing tham.

Boy, don't I have a good life.

Is it blogger?

Or did I download some weird virus that is making all my computers hang?
I've been trying to get Googled over to Becky's site so she has more to post about, but both of my computers are hanging.

Anyway, go here and click the link to say 'Hi" to Becky! I'm sure she'll love you for it!!!

I've been ordered to do something

But I'm not sure I'm going to comply.

She-who-must should-be-obeyed has told me to get rid of "that horrendous bug-eyed rodent picture" in my profile.

Should I? And if I do, do I go back to Buckwheat or find another picture?

Gee, I didn't know 110V AC was a caliber,,,,

Kinda looks like Pammy is going to have some Canadian competition in a few years....

Yet another stoopid blogger meme

This time it's the 'Six Things' thing from El Capitain.
So, lets get started...

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the six weird things about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blogpost of their own six weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose six people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says 'you are tagged’ in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

OK, I am weird because...

  1. I'm kind of a neat freak. Not as in everything has to be spotless, but things need to be where they belong- not scattered all over the floor, or thrown in the sink. Some in the family consider that somewhat anal...
  2. I'm not usually overly patient, unless I'm teaching someone who really wants to learn what I'm showing them- then we can go over things all day long.
  3. I talk to the dogs like humans, not the "widdle, biddie baby" talk that it seems most people talk to their pets.
  4. I'd rather drink cheap beer than the "good stuff".
  5. I'd rather listen to silence than music, generally.
  6. I tend to not really be a "joiner", so this meme will stop here...unless you want to post your weird stuff in my comments.


Over a hunderd thousand dead!!!

Bird flu is attacking England.

Every one PANIC!!!!

LONDON - Britain confirmed its first outbreak of the H5N1 bird flu in a domestic flock on Saturday, saying the virus has been detected on a farm owned by Europe's largest turkey producer where 2,500 turkeys died.

As a precaution all 159,000 turkeys will be slaughtered on the farm in Holton in Suffolk, about 130 miles northeast of London, said Britain's Deputy Chief Veterinary Officer Fred Landeg. He said he expects the outbreak to be contained.

Oops, maybe panic is too strong of a word...

Workers have been offered antiviral drugs and are wearing protective clothing, said Health Protection Agency virologist Maria Zambon. She added that the virus does not transmit easily to humans and has not been found to be transmitted through food.

Experts stressed the situation did not pose a public health threat.

First it was Dhimmy Carters' Swine flu that was going to devestate America, Now it's Bird flue. What's the next manufactured crisis?
Oh, yeah...'Global Climate Change'

Why did I *know* ?

I saw this article about the trial lawyers being able to make windfall profits sue the Corps of Engineers for the N'awlins levie breaks and wondered just WHO might have appointed him???

Ok, so the residents of N'awlines are going to sue for "answers" about the levies. Is everything pertinant to them going to be brought up?

Like the fact the the envriomentalists filed suit to stop them from reinforcing them about twenty years ago?

  • What about all the warnings the criminals leaders of La and N.O. had about the need to fix the problems?
  • Are they going to look at the lost money involved in getting a single dump truck to drop some base hear the levie base with the millions of dollars allocated for fill?
  • How about looking at the records of building inspections for those same damaged houses to see if they were up to the minimum codes when built?
...And that's just off the top of my head...
No, they won't- the only reason for the lawsuit is to make the trial lawyers richer, and for the denizens of the Big Easy to get more Federal money.
Why waste money on a sham trial? Just get W's trusty money-shovel and start shoveling until they say stop. At least we's save the time and money of a trial.

Oh, I fergot

Molly Ivins went to wherever Ma Richards is holed up now.
My mom always told me "If you can't say something nice about someon, then don't say anything at all."

End of post.

Now I'm convinced that it's natural

A U.N. cover group just sent out a statement from Paris, that their concensus was the global warming is 'very likly' caused by humans.

It doesn't matter to them that the climate has been fluctuating forever, THIS TIME, it's manmade.

Three participants said the group approved the term "very likely" in Thursday's sessions. That means they agree that there is a 90 percent chance that global warming is caused by humans.

"That is a big move. I hope it is a powerful statement," said Jan Pretel, head of the department of climate change at the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute.

The last report, in 2001, said global warming was "likely" caused by human activity. There had been speculation that the participants might try to change the wording this time to "virtually certain," which means a 99 percent chance.

The U.S. government delegation was not one of the more vocal groups in the debate over the "very likely" statement for man-made warming, said other countries' officials. However, several officials credited the head of the panel session, Susan Solomon, a top U.S. government climate scientist, with pushing through the agreement in just 90 minutes.


They go on to connect those nasty 'Greenhouse gases' (including CO2) in increasing the force of hurricanes ...
The report will also say that global warming has made stronger hurricanes, including those on the Atlantic Ocean such as 2005's Katrina, according to Fields and other delegates.

They said the panel approved language saying an increase in hurricane and tropical cyclone strength since 1970 "more likely than not" can be attributed to man-made global warming.

The panel did note that the increase in stronger storms differs in various parts of the globe, but that the storms that strike the Americas are global warming-influenced.
Sorry, I'm not sure what that last sentence ment.

In 2001, the same panel had said there was not enough evidence to make such a conclusion.

This week's report will also mark departure from a November 2006 statement by the
World Meteorological Organization, which helped found the IPCC. The meteorological organization, after contentious debate, said it could not link past stronger storms to global warming.
Yeah, I guess it would be hard to link the ferocious storms and dustbowls of the '30s to something that hadn't occurred yet.

A draft of the report predicts a temperature increase of between 2.5 to 10.4 degrees by the year 2100, although that could be adjusted.
An eight degree span in less than 100 years sounds more like a WAG to me- I thought they had computers to figure this stuff out.

Another contentious issue is predictions of sea level rise. Scientists are trying to incorporate concerns that their early drafts underestimate how much the sea level will rise by 2100 because they cannot predict how much ice will melt from Greenland and Antarctica.

In early drafts, scientists predicted a sea level rise of no more than 23 inches by 2100, but that does not include the ice sheet melts.

Hey, here's an idea! (brilliant, if I say so myself) Go back to the mappes of Merrey Olde Englande of the late Roman occupation- Remember, when they were growing tropical fruits in their fields because of GLOBAL WARMING. But that was before the NEXT ICE AGE that followed.

I do have to admit that I'm a little surprised that America wasn't singled out as the major cause,
I guess they didn't have time to include that.
