Are you a believer?

That is, a believer in global warming? If so, then you've probably abdicated your ability to be skeptical about the "science" said to support the theory. A couple recent news stories ( 1 and 2 ) are refreshing.

What puzzles me about global warming enthusiasts is that they are also NOT nuclear power enthusiasts. Nuclear power contributes NO greenhouse gases to the atmosphere whatsoever; and as to the issue of nuclear waste, see my November 8th piece. I mean, they want it both ways. I'm willing to cut back on pollutants pumped into the air from burning coal, oil, and natural gas in power generation plants, but I'd like to see the energy shortfall made up by nuclear power.
