http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=5045549&page=1 I love these doom and gloom guys. Noting would surprise me either way. [email protected] now I have that REM song in my head. Can't stand that band.

Al, I gotta hand it to you. Although we don't see eye to eye on many things, this issue just isn't going away. Now I'm of the belief that there will be no way to unite a planet around the concept ..but that's different than just wishing it away with denial.

Pure FUD. The end of the world has little to do with political things.
FUD is the essence of politics, and the essence of the unknowable, upon which "leaders" move the masses. Tis the history of mankind - thee who knows...

I'll take that as a rare compliment from you Gary. :)

And it's scary that those in power have C rather than U

What do you expect on a slow news day when there's nothing to report? In fact, the news has been slow all year so far. All I see is Obama-Clinton-McCain. I got sick of that a long time ago.

Nice flat statement with nothing to back it up.
I know, seriously.

Well, guys ...REALLY now ..does any time line REALLY make a difference if you're on some collision course toward a brick wall ..down a narrow corridor?? Otherwise, let's just kick in the afterburners and not bother ..since obviously "just before it's too late" is the only time suitable to do even the most infantile baby steps at any movement at all. buster, you're a little more balanced here ..but Tempest is the antithesis of the socialist greenie zealot. He's JUST as extreme and equally as unrealistic.
