"Mr. Gore blames the world's ills on climate change. It probably even causes hanging chads."

Saint Gore
Once in a while other sites will find and highlight comments, which is always good. Often the comments on a blog are even better than the content, or at least as worth reading.

At the site Tom Nelson, Tom linked to an article at Nature Magazine's website claiming that "the Obama administration has also been cautious in extending its regulatory powers to the overwhelming environmental issue of our time, climate change." That gives you a pretty good feel for the editorial slant and content of Nature. Nelson then quoted from a commenter:

ALGORE is my shepherd; I shall not think.
Thou preparest a movie in the presence of contradictory evidence:
Thou anointest mine head with nonsense; my fear runneth over.
Surely blind faith and hysteria shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of ALGORE forever.
Our Pledge:
We must trust the carbon trading markets and corporations and politicians to manage the temperature of the planet.
We must call it consensus even though all of the thousands of consensus scientists all have their own special, personal and unique views of CO2 climate crisis.
We must trust the good and trustworthy politicians who promise to lower the seas and make the weather colder by taxing the air.
We must continue to believe in climate change crisis despite Obama not even mentioning the crisis in his state of the union address.

Readers here are well aware of the rush of regulatory burden on companies and energy utilities that President Obama has poured out on the country through his administration. The writers at Nature are miffed that he backed off of one that would have raised not just energy prices but prices across the entire country, forcing inflation and lost jobs in an already slumping economy many are saying has returned to recession.
