What's your favorite book?

I really liked Conquest of Happiness. Read it in a day, and have reread it several times.

Throughout the history of mankind there have always been those who profit from the fears or needs of others. The Rain Man in the 1930 dust bowl comes to mind. Or the promise of saving our planet now that our societies globally are all tied together, whether we like it or not.
George Soros, one of the richest men in the world, is a big contributor to the global warming propaganda and if you look deep enough it's evident he stands to profit greatly if the right legislation comes to pass.
Remember that everybody is selling something but there are some that would lie, cheat, steal or even kill to make a sale.
Besides, I haven't noticed the water level coming up at our beaches. Until it does I'm a non-believer.

It's not like you are going to see 1/8" a year at the beach. Higher storm surge will be the problem.

Global Warming = Money / Power Grab

The majority of the "evidence" proponents of this have is based on computer models and everyone knows computers can be setup to spit out whatever results you want... especially since it's the liberal left that pays for the so called research.

And, just like mankind trying to stop earth quakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes... if global warming were a fact, mankind lacks the power and ability to do anything about it.

Since we did not create planet earth, it is not within our ability to change nature... although, I hear congress is going to pass a bill that forbids the earth to warm right after they outlaw cancer
