    Apparently the government has funded a musical about global warming that costs tax payers around $700,000. Funny thing is, it's so bad it will never see the light of day.

    Why is there the need to do musicals in order to sell the notion that global warming is destroying the earth? The facts should stand on their own merits, or has the government given up on education as well?

    This is just more evidence that the whole thing is pure poo.

    Hey now, just because you think taking public funding and putting it into funding the arts is a misuse of public funds, that doesn't mean that it is. Public funds can be used to fund anything an elected politicians wants to fund. If the politician was elected the politician must be doing the will of the people. There is no such thing as a misuse of public funds so you better keep your mouth shut buddy.

    Keep it up and I'll have to report you to the government.

    I just don't know why the government would fund something artistic unless they were blaspheming Christ.

    I think this tells you more about the informational value of Fox News than anything else.

    Why not write a government funded musical about it to try and get your view across?

    I think they have realized the error of their ways.

    Even though they have proven climate change without a shadow of a doubt scientifically, they realize that the American public schools system comes in 48th in the world, so now they need to get out the message some other way.

    I think a musical is a mistake, however. Most Americans probably don't even know what a musical is. Maybe Miley Cyrus needs to get out the message by doing another sleezy video. This will help reach the Obama voters the most.

    As far as climate change goes, I wish the world would return to the natural no climate change status. Those were the days.

    The climate has always changed Shav.

    It's like trying to sell the notion that the sky is blue. It's blue, but not because of what any of us have to do with it.

    I concede that living organisms have some effect on the never changing weather. For example, dino's created more cabon emissions than humans. Did their passing gas kill them all off? I've not heard a scientist suggest this, yet they expect me to believe we will kill ourselves doing much of the same?

    To date, solutions from political leaders around the world really don't address the dangers they would like us to believe. Cap and trade does little, if anything, to substantially curb carbon emissions according to their own admissions.

    Instead, cap and trade is just another creation of a "big pot of money" created by political leaders around the world, at our expense.

    Yep, the good ol' days.

    Back when factories could belch out pollution until the acid rain started eating away their cars and their workers started dying off from the cancer.

    Those good ol' days?
