I hope we include global warming in our Science standards. I saw an interview with the Japanese Prime Minister last year and he laughed hysterically when a reporter asked him if he believed in global warming. His response was something such as "This is a dead issue in Japan. We look at Science and Science says it is fact". Web Link

Americans are so selfish. Can't get rid of their goodies for the better of the planet.

... and pay no attention to those once-in-a-century storms and droughts and floods and fires that are now occurring about once a year. And please, please, why can't we elevate Fox news commentators and paid off 'analysts' onto the same plane as science in order to legitimize the controversy? Who cares what science says, Eddie Rigglesford in Maine says otherwise.
