24 Jan 09 - Thank you for a very interesting site.  I suspect I've infuriated several of my friends by recommending it to them; everybody apparently loves thinking the sky is falling and that it's all because of George Bush.  All I can tell you is that I have lived on Hillsborough Bay (the right branch of Tampa Bay) for about forty years, and the water level has not changed AT ALL over that period.  If Al Gore is correct, I should be swimming, not typing, at the moment.

By the way, has the concept of buying and selling carbon credits struck you as insane, since neither does anything to reduce ones supposed production of carbon dioxide?  If I pollute like crazy (as does Gore with his jet and house), how does buying and using the "allocated" carbon credits of someone who isn't polluting. and therefore has extras sitting around, in any way diminish or offset the pollution I'm creating?  The seller isn't using them. but if I use them, I'm making things worse, assuming carbon dioxide is harmful.

The entire Protestant revolution began because of the selling of indulgences by the Church; Gore, a bible-thumping Protestant, seems to be resurrectiong a concept that presumably had been crushed by the very Protestantism he embraces.  Ironic, isn't it?

If it matters, I'm not a Republican or conservative, or Democrat, or Liberal.  I'm just one person, among billions, who can't stand anything that represents faddism or groupthink, and who is exhausted from listening to fanatics telling me what to believe.  Maybe they're all correct, but history suggests otherwise.

Gratefully, 
Anton Chernov
