    Larry: I did NOT know tobacco doesn't really cause cancer. I am dubious of your proposition, but I am willing to look at whatever supporting evidence you care to cite.

    The title of this talk is so loaded, it promises little but to preach to a choir. Count me out.

    I haven't heard of anyone -- ANY ONE -- who denies that climate changes. The label "climate change denier" is oxymoronic pejorative shorthand used by alarmists to describe people recently called "global warming skeptics" who, more precisely, are those dubious of the claim that the proportion of carbon dioxide anthropogenically produced makes a significant contribution to an alleged "dangerous" amount of future global warming.

    Skeptics have dozens of scientific objections to the current hysteria. Perhaps they are wrong, but to tar them as "deniers" is to color them black before reasoned discussion can enlighten. Enjoy the sermon.

      Skeptics long ago accepted the realities of climate change. All that is left is ideologue deniers. BTW did you know that tobacco really doesn't really cause cancer?

      Climate change is real. Carbon tax is not the solution.

    I saw his presentation last week at the Humanists and it's not worth listening to. His reasoning - Koch Brothers bad - therefore the solution to global warming is a carbon tax. First of all any global warming solution that doesn't include population control as a central feature isn't serious. His presentation is more about hating right wingers, which we all agree on, and has nothing to do with science.

    I think that offering false solutions to global warming does more harm than good and that he is doing a disservice to those of us who take the issue seriously. I could have a little more respect if he advocated using the money raised for scientific research but he doesn't. His carbon tax solution is just moving money around and has nothing to do with global warming.

    I'd love to carpool if folks from SF are interested in going. Lecture sounds very interesting as do most but public transportation is a bit difficult given the location.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
