CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers had never bought into the notion that man can alter the climate and the Vegas snowstorm didn't impact his opinion. Myers, an American Meteorological Society certified meteorologist, explained on CNN's Dec. 18 "Lou Dobbs Tonight" that the whole idea is arrogant and mankind was in danger of dying from other natural events more so than global warming.
I have always said, it is arrogant of man to think that what we do will harm Earth.
Face it, Earth was here before us and it will be here long after we are extinct and to assume that we have any control of the weather itself is arrogant idiocy on our part.

After the House voted to bail out automakers with $14 Billion and the Senate failed to get the votes to pass said bailout, talk was that bush would step in and rescue them instead of letting them file for bankruptcy, using part of the Wall Street bailout monies.
Today I see news from ABC and others stating that Bush and the Feds are going to give the automakers a $17.4 billion, low interest loan. despite the fact that the majority of Americans do not want taxpayer money given to privately owned companies to pull their asses out of the fire.
Not only is this a massive mistake on Bush's part, but it seems the incoming Obama administration is behind the plan as well.
The White House has been talking to the Obama team about its strategy, and the incoming Democratic administration has expressed no objections to the plan, sources told ABC News.
Bush's full statement below:
THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. For years, America's automakers have faced serious challenges -- burdensome costs, a shrinking share of the market, and declining profits. In recent months, the global financial crisis has made these challenges even more severe. Now some U.S. auto executives say that their companies are nearing collapse -- and that the only way they can buy time to restructure is with help from the federal government.
Malkin brings a couple points out. First, John Boehner's statement and then the illegality of the "loan" (bailout).
