Not that you needed it, but the video at peekurl.com/vuoy9wp provides yet another in the long line of examples of the tea parties being useful idiots, in this case about global warming. It consists of a series of interviews conducted by Bob McCarty at a tea party protest in December.

Some group of leftwing environmentalists are going to protest global warming and the like by dimming their lights for "Earth Hour" between 8:30pm and 9:30pm tonight. For every action there's a reaction, and in this case the reaction is as dumb as we've come to expect, with some people encouraging others to light Christmas lights or the like in response. Moving just a little to the right on the bell curve, the Competitive Enterprise Institute is promoting instead celebrating "Human Achievement Hour" (cei.org/human-achievement-hour): The Competitive Enterprise Institute plans to recognize “...
The official website for Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth movie promotes CFL light bulbs, all types of which contain small amounts of mercury. When a bulb breaks it can release that dangerous element into the home and perhaps even lead to soil or water pollution. From climatecrisis.net/takeaction/whatyoucando:
The aptly-named Hope Yen of the Associated Press offers an article about recent science-related Barack Obama appointments. She shows us what she at least really thinks about the politicization of science: she supports it, just as long as the politics are the right kind. In fact, either she or an AP editor re-wrote a later version of the article to delete a questionable phrase; see the two editions compared side-by-side in the extended entry.
