Am I the only one that has a problem with Brownback being in Iowa on a Tuesday? Don't get me wrong, it's not just Brownback that frustrates me, it's all politicians that campaign on our time. Seriously, wasn't there a better place for Brownback on a Tuesday afternoon? Maybe...working.

Trust me, this is not an endorsement for Hillary Clinton, but at least she made her last round of appearances in Iowa on the weekend.

Brownback's in the minority, so he has very little work to do.

This is a prime example why Brownback has no shot as a republican candidate for pres. Pandering to the global warming kooks turns off conservative voters such as myself, in droves.

Couple this with his support for amnesty for illegal aliens and his other conservative attributes are neutralized.

He didn't say "global warming", he said "climate change".

Yes...those 10,000+ independent scientists and all those involved in the thousands of independent scientific studies from over 150 nations are all a bunch of kooks with a unified ulterior motive. No one knows what that ulterior motive is but they're up to something, we all just know it.

Also, remember that the Earth is only 6,000 years old and that any physical evidence to the contrary was created by that meddlesome devil Satan dude.

Oh yes...also...all the moon landings were faked, our 6,000 year old Earth is flat, the Sun and stars revolve around us and professional wrestling is real. Oh and Ted Haggard isn't gay or a drug user...the devil tricked him.

Y'all people from Kansas and Missouri is funny. No wonder the rest of the developed world laughs at you and thinks your part of the country is backwater!

"I'd rather work on a core set of issues that we can agree on"

Isn't that Brokebackspeak for "I want to be VP on the next Republican ticket"?

*sigh*

"He didn't say "global warming", he said "climate change"."

Same thing

"Yes...those 10,000+ independent scientists..."

Concensus doesn't equal fact. At one time the scientific concensus was that the earth was flat.

There are also thousands of scientists who hold the opposing "OPINION" that the warming trend that we are currently experiencing has nothing to do with human activity and is completely out of mans control. We arent't causing the globe to warm any more than we could cause it to cool, cause ice caps to melt, cause them to form or stop the earth from rotating. We are simply along for the ride and there isn't a damn thing we can do to influence the behavior of the globe.

I strongly suspect we aren't helping the situation with our C02 emissions. Gary Lezak (meteorolgist) has studied global warming for years and has said that it's real, and that whether or not we believe it's a man-made phenomenon, it doesn't hurt to adopt behaviors that will help to mitigate C02 emissions. Contrary to your statement, there may well be "a damn thing that we can do about it."
