KEYSTONE Global warming is the hottest story of our time, and it will get even bigger as the full implications of melting ice caps and rising sea levels percolate through the media pipeline and into general public awareness, a panel of journalists said last weekend during the American Bar Association's environmental law conference.
The discussion was focused on how the media has covered the story and whether or not public perception of global warming has changed in recent months and years. Among the questions the panelists tried to answer is why it has taken so long for the story to reach critical mass.
Most of the panelists credited Al Gore's documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," with helping to generate attention.

[A] Either something dramatically changed, [B] all the world's scientist were stupid before that time... [C] or this his a bunch of political horse pookie that's tied to GWB's election as President.
Those are the only logical choices.
If [A], what changed and by how much?
If [B], how come the same scientists were stupid then and brilliant now?
If [C], why no MSM humble pie or Algore lynching?
I copied all your graphs. Yours are the best! I hope you dont mind? The most common one up there is from you.

No problem, I stole them too, LOL.
The real culprits behind the GorebullWarming trends ;O)
So let me get this straight. They had a panel discussion of idiot reporters chatting about their idiocy. Sounds like a circle jerk.
My "Onion detector" is usually pretty strong, but I must admit I had to check to see if this one was satire. Pretty scary!
I once heard something along the lines that the whole world's population could fit inside Texas and everyone would have several acres. Anyone know about that?
Cute : )
I still think it is these guys:
I dunno. I went to a different college which had it's own version of nonsense. We were all to eat soybeans vs cows because of all the babies we were going to make (which we didn't).
268,581 sq mi
And mulitiplied it by 5280 and then multiplied that number by 12 and got the number
Which would be the number of sq inches contained in the area of Texas.
And then divided by the number 6,525,170,264. That's the world population according to cia.gov.
The answer I got on the WinXP calc is 2.6079460271.......
Draw your own conclusions.
I'd say the "Global Warming" scam has peaked, except for the true believers in a glorious socialist future, and the usual useful idiots.
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
268,581 sq/mi X 640 acres/sq mile divided by 300,000,000 Americans = .153 acres per man woman and child
I do believe it was Rush who made this statement, and it was Americans, and not the world population
You forgot to square your 5280*12 factor -
(268,581 sq. miles * 4,014,489,600 sq. inches per sq. mile) / 6,525,170,264 = 165,239 sq. in. per person = 1,147 sq. ft. per person.
I get 1167.5 square feet per person
5280 * 5280 = 2787870 square feet in square mile
2787870 * 268,581 = 7487608550400 square feet in Texas
7487608550400 / 6,525,170,264 = 1167.4962 sq ft / person
Not very spacious but better.
(268,581 sq mi) x (2,747,840 sq ft/sq mi) divided by (6,525,170,264 persons) = 1147.5 sq ft per person in the world, which is the equivalent of a square that is 33 ft 10.5 inches on a side.
Not much space, but it is a surprising result nonetheless.
