Losing my religion

Now this makes sense. Because Africa was a continent of such peace and stability before "man-made global warming."

It's getting easier and easier to not side with these guys.

You seem like a mostly sensible guy, which is why it's puzzling that the American right is so out of touch with Conservatives everywhere else in the world on this issue.
Do you have any counter-arguments to go against the claims made in this artlcle? Because otherwise it just sounds like a simplistic knee-jerk reaction.

I don't believe man is responsible for global warming, or that it won't eventually right itself with the natural heating and cooling cycles of planet Earth. I have no problem with curbing pollution and greenhouse gases, so I do think there are good things coming out of this global warming hysteria. However, "hysteria" is what I feel it all ultimately boils down to.

As I've said before, though, I wouldn't take this stance unless I really believed it - because there is no winning. In 10-20 years, the dire predictions will have not come to pass, and instead of Al Gore or whoever admitting they were wrong, they will just have claimed to have fixed it.
