As an I get a free tote bag?

But Kert Davies, a climate campaigner for Greenpeace who is attending the Heartland event, said that the experts giving talks were "a shrinking collection of extremists" and that they were "left talking to themselves."
As a full member of the "shrinking collection of extremists," I hereby open membership to the masses.

Rasmussen finds that 60 percent of Americans believe that finding new energy sources is more important than reducing the amount of energy Americans now consume, while only 32 percent believe the opposite. And 51 percent believe that more nuclear plants should be built in the United States, while 31 percent disagree. Some 45 percent believe that global warming is caused primarily by long-term planetary effects, while 38 percent believe that human activity is to blame. Anthropogenetic global warming may be the consensus view of the elite (including corporate leaders who are scrambling to make money off cap-and-trade systems), but there is no such consensus among the public. Rather to the contrary; most Americans think the media is portraying global warming as worse than it is.
Wow...that was fast!!! We now have more extremists.

And, Kert Davies is correct. We are "left talking to ourselves" because those of Mr. Davies' ilk haven't the faintest idea what it means to have an open mind about the issue. In his open mind would show an empty head.

But...I'm not satisfied...let's go get some more extremists:

Ipsos MORI polled 1,039 adults and found that six out of 10 agreed that 'many scientific experts still question if humans are contributing to climate change', and that four out of 10 'sometimes think climate change might not be as bad as people say'. In both cases, another 20 per cent were not convinced either way. Despite this, three quarters still professed to be concerned about climate change.
By God, they have extremists over there in the United Kingdom as well. And, incidentally, the left leaning Guardian skewed the actual results of this poll by trying to imply that thee quarters still professed a concern over climate change without qualifying whether it was an anthropogenetic issue or not. And, they didn't reveal the questions that made up the poll, which leaves open the possibility of a "this or that" trap question that would shape the results as well. the UK 60% of the populace question whether scientific experts have made the connection between man made carbon emissions and warming. In the United States, 7% more of the populace don't believe that it is a man made issue, than those who do. BUT:

Yvo de Boer, head of the UN office running the meetings leading to a new global climate treaty, said, "I don't believe that what the skeptics say should provide any excuse to delay further" action against global warming.
Arrogance wrapped up in the redistribution of wealth du jour. We extremists have the audacity to request bona fide proof before throwing hard earned money down a rat in the UN's case...into the til of organized crime.
