From an editorial on the LA Times website, here is a quote from the comments addressing the idea of whether or not humans are affecting the climate:
Gee, I’m so confused. Who should I believe? The worlds largest ReInsurance companies, the US Dept of Defense, the CIA, the National Science Foundation, every major public science institution, and 98% of climate scientitsts, OR
some lame brained right-wing bloggers with home made websites ??
In a related note, I do consider someone’s website when judging whether or not they know what they are talking about in general. I know a lot of people in technology love to slam WordPress, but it’s easy to use and there are a lot of nice themes for it. Maybe writing someone off as a kook for using the blink tag is wrong, but if you want me to change my life, at least put some thought into your message.
Here is another one, responding to the idea that Obama should compromise to “gain credibility” with conservatives:
Ah, the endless quest of the center left to give things away to “bolster credibility.” I wrote a whole post about this — “credibility is like a rainbow” — so I won’t write it all again. Suffice to say, Obama cut taxes for almost every American, presided over a massive expansion in oil and gas production (during a sharp decline in carbon emissions), deported millions of illegal immigrants, killed Osama bin Laden, and cut the deficit by almost half. Guess how much support and credibility it has gotten him among conservatives? That’s right: none.
