That is quite moronic in that socialism and fascism are polar opposites.
But maybe you _want_ to be noted as a moron. It may help your political

If the proceeds of an excise tax on oil are returned directly to the
people in the form of a "stimulus" shaped exactly like the last
"stimulus" then it is rather difficult to see how Exxon can "pass the tax
to the consumers". The oil gluttons will pay the tax and those that
conserve on fuel will enjoy the benefits. Meanwhile, the balance of
payments will improve and biofuels will be more competitive. That is the
reality as opposed to the horseshit.

"Rigorously quantify". Fine academic words. You are dealing with a
chaotic system of which there is only one copy. I'd say "rigorous
quantification" of the effect of different "external" influences, or
even a clear meaning to the concept, whether or not it can be
produced, is right out the door.

Regional scales? You mean, like North America? I also note the 50
year caveat, which at least sounds more conservative: so at most we
can say, even according to this study, that over the last century or
so, human influence has had a significant influence on global
climate. Excuse me, is "likely" to have had... It should be realized
that "likely" here is a strictly Bayesian probability, assuming,
again, we can even agree that the assertion is prima facie meaningful,
before we get to "likely".

The study was done for the US government, and the scope was limited to
the effects on the US.

The quote was from a summary of the study. It would be reasonable to
assume that the scientists who did the study have a more rigorous
definition of "likely" within the analysis

Just a comment, sir: what I see is a war of credibility, which is why
I think you should find some other sobriquet for Al Gore, because your
current one does not raise _your_ credibility: you're only hurting
yourself, as they say. Simply leave off at calling Gore a hypocrite,
which you effectively did without even using the word -- that's a good
deal stronger polemic.

Notice I didn't insult you or even substantively question your
assertions, so if you come back to me with insults, this will simply
be a further credibility loss.

Thank you for taking the time to analyze my post. You're certainly right
regarding my negative comments about former Vice President Gore's
appearance. My arguments would be more credible with out them. On the
other hand, I really dislike the lard-assed, two-faced lying son of a bitch.

Siegelman appointed him to be Alabamas State Climatologist. In 1989 Dr. Roy
W. Spencer, a NASA/Marshall scientist, and Christy developed a global
temperature data set from microwave data observed from satellites beginning
in 1979. For this achievement, the Spencer-Christy team was awarded NASA's
Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievement in 1991. In 1996, they were
selected to receive a Special Award by the American Meteorological Society

Here are the global average temperatures since 1958. "o" = trend line.

Look at all those "o"'s lined up there. The trend is up, Up, UP.

And most recently the rate of increase is about 2'C per century.

No one will read or heed your reference. It is not proper "evidence."

A small part of the article:

.........
There are some of us who remain so humbled by the task of measuring and
understanding the extraordinarily complex climate system that we are
skeptical of our ability to know what it is doing and why. As we build
climate data sets from scratch and look into the guts of the climate system,
however, we don't find the alarmist theory matching observations. (The
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite data we analyze at
the University of Alabama in Huntsville does show modest warming -- around
2.5 degrees Fahrenheit per century, if current warming trends of 0.25
degrees per decade continue.)

It is my turn to cringe when I hear overstated-confidence from those who
describe the projected evolution of global weather patterns over the next
100 years, especially when I consider how difficult it is to accurately
predict that system's behavior over the next five days.

Mother Nature simply operates at a level of complexity that is, at this
point, beyond the mastery of mere mortals (such as scientists) and the tools
available to us. As my high-school physics teacher admonished us in those
we-shall-conquer-the-world-with-a-slide-rule days, "Begin all of your
scientific pronouncements with 'At our present level of ignorance, we think
we know . . .'"

So global warming may lead to right actions for wrong reasons?
Interesting argument. Haven't heard much about acid rain recently. Is
that because we fixed that problem, or because it simply dropped out
of fashion? Or was it never a problem in the first place?

Exxon pulled in $11.68 billion in profits in august of this year alone.

Exxon Mobil: Biggest profit in history
The largest U.S. oil company surges past analysts' estimates with a posted
net income of $14.83 billion and sets a national record for quarterly
profit.
By Aaron Smith, CNNMoney.com staff writer
Last Updated: October 30, 2008: 3:28 PM ET
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Exxon Mobil Corp. set a quarterly profit record
for a U.S. company Thursday, surging past analyst estimates.

Exxon Mobil (XOM, Fortune 500), the leading U.S. oil company, said its
third-quarter net profit was $14.83 billion, or $2.86 per share, up from
$9.41 billion, or $1.70, a year earlier. That profit included $1.45 billion
in special items.

The company's prior record was $11.68 billion in the second quarter of 2008.

The latest quarter's net income equaled $1,865.69 per second, nearly $400 a
second more than the prior mark.

The company said its revenue totaled $137.7 billion in the third quarter.

Analysts had expected Exxon to report a 40% jump in earnings to $2.38 per
share, or net income of $12.2 billion, and a 28% surge in revenue to $131.13
billion, according to a consensus of estimates compiled by Thomson Reuters.

The company's earnings were buoyed by oil prices, which reached record highs
in the quarter before declining. Oil prices were trading at $140.97 a barrel
at the beginning of the third quarter, and had fallen to $100.64 at the end.

Compare that to 2007, when prices traded at $71.09 a barrel at the beginning
of the third quarter, and rose to $81.66 by the end.

Last of the big quarters
Exxon's special charges include the gain of $1.62 billion from the sale of a
German natural gas company. It also includes the $170 million charge in
interest related to punitive damages from the Valdez oil spill off the
Alaskan coast in 1989.

The Irving, Texas-based company said it lost $50 million, before taxes, in
oil revenue because of Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. The company expects
damages related to these hurricanes to reduce fourth-quarter earnings by
$500 million.

Exxon's stock price slipped by about 2% in afternoon trading. Bernie McGinn,
Chief Executive of McGinn Investment Management and owner of 30,000 Exxon
shares, said he wasn't surprised, given the recent downturn in oil prices.

"That's probably the last of the big profit quarters, at least for now,"
said McGinn. "You can't make the case that it's going to continue."

Despite the surge in profit, Exxon said oil production was down 8% in the
third quarter, compared to the same period last year.

The company also said it is spending more money to locate new sources of
oil. Exxon said it spent $6.9 billion on oil exploration in the third
quarter, a jump of 26% from the same period last year. The company said it
began a new program to tap natural gas offshore from Nigeria.

More investments
Exxon also has an aggressive program for buying back stock, with 109 million
of its shares repurchased during the third quarter, at a cost of $8.7
billion.

In a conference call with analysts, David Rosenthal, vice president of
investor relations for Exxon, said the company's "first priority" is using
profits to continue investing in exploration programs for oil and other
resources.

Rosenthal said the company would also consider using new-found funds to
bolster its dividend, buy back more shares and to purchase other companies,
but he declined to offer specific details.

Phil Weiss, analyst for Argus Research, said he doesn't expect Exxon to
break any more profit records in future quarters.

"I don't expect the fourth quarter to be nearly as good as the third because
of lower oil prices," said Weiss.

Analysts also said that demand for gasoline is falling, which could impact
Exxon and other oil companies.

"While oil companies benefit from high oil prices in the short run, they
might lose in the long run," Anas Alhajji, chief economist for NGP Energy
Capital Management, wrote in an email to CNNMoney.com. "Higher oil prices
lead to lower demand, as we have seen in recent months."

Earlier Thursday, Europe's leading oil company, Royal Dutch Shell PLC
(RDSA), reported a 22% gain in net profit for the third quarter, to $8.45
billion. The company said sales rose 45% to $132 billion.

Exxon is the second-largest company in the Fortune 500 in terms of annual
sales, behind Wal-Mart Stores (WMT, Fortune 500).

Exxon's stock price has fallen about 20% so far this year, compared to the
S&P 500, which has fallen about 36%

Jep, the rest of this topic is pure masturbation.

Look how smart I am I can see though the allegory!!!

All we need is a bit of hemp then have bio fuels, construction
materials, paper, plastics, food, fertiliser and oxygen.

Look how conditioned people are under that heading.

It's just to laugh about.

hey hey hey, that's unfair... Algore has
cut a big check to a guilt mongering power
trip 'green' organization (non-profit, of
course) - who deserve the fruit of your labor
cuz you're greedy and they aren't - this
atones for his 'carbon footprint' and proves

You'd like Bjorn Lomborg's commentary
on this topic... "the skeptical environmentalist"
He does a mind bending thing called 'cost/benefit
analysis' (which the left wingers call
conservative racism).

I think the fact that this thread is in sci.econ as opposed to sci.energy
or something is a testimonial to the fact that is has become a political
football as opposed to anything scientific. For my own self I can't seem
to take a side on this GW deal and never have. I see social democracy as
the best ideological compromise and want to move along. In that regard I
would like to see a lot more of the tax burden in the USA on petroleum
and on import duties. And I have no objection to a carbon tax that gets
both crude and coal. My own position is one of rebuilding the economic
strength of the USA by getting off the oil teat and at the same time not
having acid for rain. Global warming for me is like spotted owls: If I
have to hang a few spotted owls from the limbs of those gorgeous huge
tress to keep the morons away then I'll do it. Quality of life matters.

We can fix the environment quite easily.

Hemp fearmongering is a good example. Hemp served mankind for
thousands of years, nature used to convert deserts into forests.
Taking it out of the loop kills the loop, no maybe here.

The Gore trick works like this:

You create imaginary motivations for a real problem.

Then you have others attack the imaginary motivations.

People will eventually see the imaginary motivations are fake.

The debate perpetuates forever while nothing happens.

Like Gore talks about rising sea levels while we are chopping down all
the trees and preventing deserts from becoming green.

Normally, oxygen comprises 21% of our air at sea level. If this
percentage falls below 5%, serious consequences. For instance, there
have been reports of oxygen levels in the 6 to 7% percent range in
Tokyo. All possible diseases become more harmful from lack of oxygen.
In Tibet everyone with a weak heart just dies, this way man can
"adapt" to gradually decreasing oxygen levels but not as fast as it's
currently going. The amount of thoughts a person has scales perfectly
with the atmospheric oxygen levels. Eventually one will just drop dead
forgetting how to breath.

The idea we can have billions of people, cut down all the green and
refuse to grow anything to replace it is far more idiotic than the
carbon emissions or so called global warming.

Like Gore talks about rising sea levels while we are chopping down all
the trees and preventing deserts from becoming green.

Normally, oxygen comprises 21% of our air at sea level. If this
percentage falls below 5%, serious consequences. For instance, there
have been reports of oxygen levels in the 6 to 7% percent range in
Tokyo. All possible diseases become more harmful from lack of oxygen.
In Tibet everyone with a weak heart just dies, this way man can
"adapt" to gradually decreasing oxygen levels but not as fast as it's
currently going. The amount of thoughts a person has scales perfectly
with the atmospheric oxygen levels. Eventually one will just drop dead
forgetting how to breath.

The idea we can have billions of people, cut down all the green and
refuse to grow anything to replace it is far more idiotic than the
carbon emissions or so called global warming.

Bingo! We have a winner. There are a myriad of very real problems that we
have to deal with and some of them represent an immediate threat to us and
our way of life. However, "global warming" isn't one of them. Even if the
whole global warming scam hadn't been a lot of bull shit, no one alive
today, or their children, or their children or their children would have
ever been alive to see it. The fact is ol' lard ass Al Gore made a quick
$100M while living in a mansion, traveling in a convoy of gas-guzzling SUVs
and flying around in his private jet telling a bunch of liberal idiots they
need to eat less, live colder and ride bicycles.

Global warming never was a problem. It was just a huge scam that got
replaced by an even bigger scam called "bail outs".

With one difference. Aids, the Plague and myths about Irish drunks are
real. The only real thing about global warming was the $96M ol' lard ass Al
made selling it to guys like you. Seriously bucko. Al Gore lives in a
mansion, he travels in convoys of gas-guzzling SUVs and flies around in
private jets while telling the "global-warming-faithful" to eat less, live
colder and ride bicycles. Didn't that ever strike you as just a little,
teeny, weeny bit nuts? Global warming was the biggest scam ever pulled on
the American people - until the government came up with "bail outs".

No bucko. It's over because it turns out the data they were using to
predict global warming was flawed and now scientists are starting to
distance themselves from the hardcore nut cases and opportunists that are
still pushing it.
Fact is, global warming became a religious crusade for the lunatic liberal
left. It also became big business. If the whole global warming scam is
publicly debunked, thousands of people will lose their global warming
related jobs.
The good news is that the ring master of this scam - ol' lard ass Al - made
his $100M and is still living in his mansion, traveling in convoys of
gas-guzzling SUVs and flying in his private jet while he lectures dim wits
like you on eating less, living colder and riding bicycles.

As usual, Mike is right on top of things, citing the latest facts
according to Sean Hannity. But the scientists at the US Climate
Change Science program happen to see it diffently. What a shocker!:

------------------------
WHAT IS CAUSING CLIMATE CHANGE IN THE UNITED STATES?

Studies that rigorously quantify the effect of different external
influences on observed changes (attribution studies) conclude that
most of the recent global warming is very likely due to
human-generated increases in greenhouse gas concentrations.

IT IS LIKELY THAT THERE HAS BEEN A SUBSTANTIAL HUMAN CONTRIBUTION TO
SURFACE TEMPERATURE INCREASES IN NORTH AMERICA.

Attribution studies also show that it is likely that there has been a
substantial human contribution to surface temperature increases
in North America, though attribution of the drivers of long-term
temperature changes on time scales of less than 50 years and at
regional scales, with limited exceptions, has not yet been
established.

Discernible human influences also extend to additional aspects of
climate, including the recent decreases in Arctic sea ice extent,
patterns of sea-level pressure and winds, and the global scale pattern
of land precipitation.

Pay attention numb nuts. The earth is millions of years old and we've been
keeping climate records for about 100 years. Not to mention the fact that
the global warming idiots have been misreading the extremely limited data
they do have. Global warming is a scam and reputable scientists are
exposing it for exactly what it is. Better find a new liberal cause bucko,
because that global warming dog won't hunt any more.

Good articles lass. As I said, global warming was never a problem, just a
big scam. Now it's been replaced with an
even bigger scam called "bail outs". Of course you'll still have some hard
core idiots listening to ol' lard ass Al and the ones who have jobs that
depend on the global warming scam staying alive but, for every one else,
global warming is about as important as the global freezing hysteria of the
1970s.

Here is an update from a site that I just found now.
It deals with C02 levels from the past, present and future.

Have We Been Misled About Past Carbon Dioxide Levels?
There are many reasons why atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide, from
any source, do not control the Earth's climate. However, most of us
assume that measures and estimates of past levels of CO2 are accurate.
New evidence shows that may not be the case. If this is true, why have
we been misled? If we have been misled about the temperature history,
and there is much evidence suggesting we have been, why not historical
CO2 levels?
Peter

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------
In a paper submitted to the Hearing before the US Senate Committee on
Commerce, Science, and Transportation Professor Zbigniew Jaworowski
explains,
The basis of most of the IPCC conclusions on anthropogenic causes and
on projections of climatic change is the assumption of low level of
CO2 in the pre-industrial atmosphere. This assumption, based on
glaciological studies, is false.

Ice cores provide the historic record and data collected at Mauna Loa
the recent record. Both records are drastically modified to produce a
smooth continuous curve with little variability. This was necessary to
confirm the evidence falsely concluded from many 19th century measures
that pre-industrial levels were approximately 280 ppm and didnt vary
much. So how did they engineer the smooth curves and ignore the fact
the 19th century record shows a global average of 335 ppm and
considerable variability from year to year.

Most people dont know that thousands of direct measures of
atmospheric CO2 were made beginning in 1812. Scientists took the
readings with calibrated instruments and precise measurements as the
work of Ernst-Georg Beck has thoroughly documented. Guy Stewart
Callendar was an earlier visitor to these records. He rejected most of
the records including 69% of the 19th century records and only
selected certain records that established the pre-industrial level as
280 ppm. Here is a plot of the records with those Callendar selections
circled.
It is clear how only low readings were chosen. Also notice how the
slope and trend is changed compared to the entire record.

As Jaworowski notes,
The notion of low pre-industrial CO2 atmospheric level, based on such
poor knowledge, became a widely accepted Holy Grail of climate warming
models. The modelers ignored the evidence from direct measurements of
CO2 in atmospheric air indicating that in 19th century its average
concentration was 335 ppmv.

Beck recently confirmed Jaworowskis research. A September 2008
article in Energy and Environment examined the readings in great
detail and validated the 19th century findings. In a devastating
conclusion Beck writes,
Modern greenhouse hypothesis is based on the work of G.S. Callendar
and C.D. Keeling, following S. Arrhenius, as latterly popularized by
the IPCC. Review of available literature raise the question if these
authors have systematically discarded a large number of valid
technical papers and older atmospheric CO2 determinations because they
did not fit their hypothesis? Obviously they use only a few carefully
selected values from the older literature, invariably choosing results
that are consistent with the hypothesis of an induced rise of CO2 in
air caused by the burning of fossil fuel.

So the pre-industrial level is at least 50 ppm higher than the level
put into the computer models that produce all future climate
predictions. The models also incorrectly assume uniform atmospheric
global distribution and virtually no variability of CO2 from year to
year.
Beck found, Since 1812, the CO2 concentration in northern hemispheric
air has fluctuated exhibiting three high level maxima around 1825,
1857 and 1942 the latter showing more than 400 ppm. Here is a plot
from Beck comparing 19th century readings with ice core and Mauna Loa
data.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------

For shure, I am not knowledgeable enough about scientific research to
give an opinion on the validity of claims about the amounts of C02 in
the atmosphere over the years.

I have to be content to sit here and tweak the noses of AlGore's
Followers, as he issues his pronouncements to the Faithful.

I also saw somewhere (if need be, I'll find it) where an Australian newpaper
debunked that famous picture of a polar bear swimming with it's baby and no
where for them to land but an itty bitty ice cube. Turns out the picture
was taken during the summer when that is all there is where it was taken.
Of course American media failed to think the truth was newsworthy.

So "debunking" algore means global warming is a myth. Irrelevant

Sadly Irish Mike's only claim to fame is his nightly binge drinking and
the uncleaned vomit that remains behind his toilet.

The best thing about all of idiot economics is that reality has
never been a problem.
Which is really why the people with economic brains even
invented the Digital,
Fiber Optics, Holograms, CD, DVD, HDTV. Bioptical Computers,
GPS, Drones,
Post GM Robotics, and On-Line Publishing.
