I would LOVE and heartily endorse a "Scopes Monkey" type-trial for those human-induced, climate change deniers.

That is exactly what needs to be done to convince them otherwise and show that climate change is indisputable. The WNYC segment sometime later today on Americans' skepticism of science is instructive on this point; meaning that many people in this country do not believe in observation and implementing the scientific method. Show those people up...

Also, maybe a carbon tax instead of a cap-and-trade might be less daunting and more straight forward for the Chamber and other corporatists and free-marketeers to accept.

Did your guest see the the New York Times Article this past weekend: "Hacked E-Mail Is New Fodder for Climate Dispute". Climate change scientists who have "conspired to overstate the case for climate change" ?

Is Al Gore making money off his invention of carbon credits and his carbon marketplace? Pay to pollute.
