    Not so fast. It appears that it may fall somewhere closer to pseudoscience than fact:

    I'm sure the AP will assign 11 reporters to fact check the purloined emails. Not. Rather it will be all about the taking and not about the content of same. Let the games begin.

    Skimming, the tone/content almost sounds more like planted material......will be very interesting to get the whole scoop, wonder how it will be covered????

    I wouldn't put it past them for a second. Accurate or not, this has never been about the science for the Gore-esque crowd.

    This should get interesting if these prove to be original emails.

    Good to see you back, flashman. :tu

    Are genuine:

    Good to be back. Wonder if Al Gore will give back his ill begotten gains, Oscar and Nobel Prize? Nah, that's for suckers. Look for the left to push cap and trade despite this bombshell.

    Out of curiosity... What do you think it IS about?

    What does global warming theory DO to the world? What is the motivation?


    Certainly, you could make the point that people AGAINST global warming such as oil companies could be motivated by the desire to keep using fossil fuels . Companies could be motivated by the desire to keep things business as usual...

    What do supporters of global warming have to gain?

    Quite simple, exactly what those against it (for the wrong reasons) have to lose. Given the motivations you mention for people keeping things 'business as usual', going away from that and thus having 'new business as usual'---i.e. business for them (green goons) instead of the current crop (the oil folks/goons).

    We've been over this before, your misguided notions that big oil is somehow vastly different in many respects than what big corn will be are nonsense. This is not about which one is better environmentally, internationally etc.....those are valid, but different aspects. You asked about what they stand to gain, it's quite clear.

    Gore's not making any money off all this is he? Nobody else is either, right? It's not about market share and money, it's just for the children, right?

    Green isn't the hottest thing going right now, right?

    It's about money with oil, it's about money with big corn. The allies and lies are different, the game is the same.

    Who's money... who's power...

    Are you telling me that some little long haired hippie is going to topple the most powerful lobby in america (okay maybe the insurance lobby is more powerful :eek:).. the second most powerful lobby in america?
