Craptastic: "Wind is God's way of balancing heat. Wind is the way you shift heat from areas where it's hotter to areas where it's cooler. That's what wind is. Wouldn't it be ironic if in the interest of global warming we mandated massive switches to energy, which is a finite resource, which slows the winds down, which causes the temperature to go up?"Clearly, this man has never walked in Phoenix during July.

gulogulo: birchman: If congress were filled with scientists instead of psychopaths this country would be 100x better off.Yeah, but we aren't nearly as charismatic. And most of the time, no one understands us when we speak.
