Well, you know what they say about the persistence of weeds.

Just grab a few seeds of dissent, water them with tyranny, fertilize them with a good mix of wisdom and the desire for freedom, and they should grow into a healthy tree of liberty. That should take care of those government plants. Just remember to water it with the blood of tyrants and patriots after it sprouts from the ground.

I like this video, however I disagree that cap and trade is a "much needed bill"...
Man made global warming is real, therefore the government should destroy the economy?
That's quite a syllogism he's working on there!

He acknowledges in the video that it's quite possible there's been fudging. He's not being an apologist for anyone who's been insincere, he's just trying to review this objectively. I read what Shane had to say regarding the Shotgun Fallacy. This is an issue with shades of gray, and regardless of what is uncovered that doesn't mean the climate issue as a whole is wrong or right; a few bad apples in the scientific community don't invalidate all the genuine research done to date. Sadly, there are those looking for easy targets/enemies who will be glad to make videos in areas they have no expertise in.

2:30: Okay, so why hasn't the sun warmed Mercury, Venus, and Uranus?

The warming of these planets is due to the Milankovich cycle. Pluto is warming because it's closer than usual to the sun. Let's think about this: Pluto has warmed a tenth of a degree. At its closest, it's 30AUs from the sun (i.e., 30 times Earth's average orbit). Solar energy reduces by an inverse square with distance, so if the sun's warming Pluto by a certain amount, then the sun will be warming Earth by 30^2, or 900, times that amount. That should correspond to a 90-degree warming of our planet--which would boil away the oceans!
