Interesting NASA report on satellite results indicating that CO2 and NO actually played a role in keeping Earth cool--
The United States has been dancing in the dark to the mad tune of capitalism for nearly 40 years now. The end result of which is a nation that has embraced pessimism as a religion, turned apathy and self centered amusement into a life style, and become isolated from any true sense of community. The concept of a nation sharing the burden of all its citizens has been replaced by the worship of the base nature of humanity. This is displayed in the sycophantic idolization of wealth and those who wield its power no matter the costs and consequence to society.
Quite a few years ago, a small group of my neighbors decided to put on a forum to talk about Freedom of the Press. At the time, Mr. Hartmann was local, and we invited him to be a speaker. He did it! We were so honored and grateful, and that afternoon a lot of people came to the forum at our local college, and all were listening and learning from him. I recently switched from Comcast to Direct TV, and now get his TV show! Hooray, that makes me so happy!

Anyone who discovers they are victims of identity theft should immediately report this to the IRS. They will issue you a special PIN # to use when filing your tax return. As a professional, I had one taxpayer who had one this last filing season and we had several returns rejected because someone else had filed a tax return using their name and SS#. You should also contact the 3 credit bureaus and have them issue fraud alerts. I would also strongly suggest that you get your free credit report annually from the credit bureaus.
LiveScience.com is taking part in propaganda. For instance, when the news of C02 levels hitting 400 ppm LiveScience.com immediately ran a story on how experts at Oxford University had determined that the increase in average global temperature wouldn’t “be that bad”.
