Here is some scary coverage of global warming from ABC news.

Seth says
My own stance here is that the science tells us man's affect on the climate is contributing to global warming; but the over hyped scare tactics are probably not warranted.  However, there is a great opportunity to not only ween ourselves of Middle East Oil, but also develop new alternative energy industries.  The long term results of  those initiatives will be good for our economy and also for our planet.  There is not rational reason not to aggressively pursue those alternative energy solutions.  Inhofe's speech regurgitates old arguments which the scientists have already refuted.  It displays the worst kind of political rhetoric which does not listen to the other side of the dialogue.  

Mark de LA says
Kewl on the alternative sources of energy - hopfully not just improved combustion technology. The rest is all "story" - my scientists & politicians against your scientists & politicians. Not a worthwhile endeavor IMHO.

The trick is to learn how to read science and media coverage of science and to determine which hangs together better.  This, of course, is hard to do.  It does require a lot of time.  We cannot expect that a casual read will uncover the truth.  Politicians, well that is another story ... need to read them with another part of your being.
