COPE Forum Tonight...

I'm heading out the door to attend the Citizens for an Open Process for Everyone (COPE) forum, which will feature candidates for county executive and the county council. I can't promise that I'll have something up about it tonight, but definitely tomorrow.

Meanwhile, a snide link (that I've since removed) in my global warming post generated a response from the linked. I've since gone back and forth with his commenters. Clearly, we've still got a ways to go before we've won the hearts and minds.

Also, a commenter posed an interesting question about Kyoto that I don't have time to answer in depth. But I will say this. The movie definitely makes a case for the US signing it, but that's not the bigger message, which is that individuals can make their own changes and have an impact. The second thing about Kyoto I'll say is that I think it represents pragmatism run amok.

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on the supposed threat of Global Warming....

I wish I saw this post before I went to the COPE forum myself and knew you were going to be there. I would have made an effort to seek you out and finally introduce myself. Oh well, I am sure we will run across each othe in person eventually

Hello Hayduke,

I spent a very few minutes looking at the Global Warming debate between you, Wissing and his illustrious associates. I'd like to suggest that you not debase yourself by engaging with them any further. Frankly, it's beneath you. You have bigger fish to fry, and no one who matters on this topic takes Wissing or his beliefs seriously.
Warming regards...
