It's been estimated that the 1980's eruption of Mt St. Helens put more green house gases in the atmosphere than man has EVER put in the atmosphere in the modern era. Hmm better put filters on all those volcanos out there to make them more earth friendly when they erupt!

Enough said, I'd prefer my tax dollars that are spent studing "global warming" be either returned to me so I can spend it more wisely, or better yet take that money and develop alternate power sources that are useful. There is no dispute that we can do better than fossil fuels, so lets do it and quit wasting money trying to prove some dumb theory. I don't need to waste millions upon millions of dollars to know that pushing for new clean burning or alternative technologies is good for everyone, the earth included.
