But that is not what you said before.  You said we should spend the
money to try and solve the problem.  The only reasonable answer to
the question of global warming is I don't know if it is happening, if
it is happening, I don't know if it is manmade, and if it is
happening, I don't know if it is a bad thing.  No one is suggesting
that we not even look at the issues and theories--just that we don't
need to throw money at solving an unknown problem.
