Quote of the day: Abe Lincoln on facts

"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts."
…………………………………………………………. – Abraham Lincoln

Not sure luminaries like James Hansen or Stephen Schneider or Jim Salinger or The ‘I-won’t-debate-with-you’ Goracle agree with old Abe.  Must be a generational thing. (Gore still won’t debate by the way, but he will sometimes answer questions – but only if the audience is tame.  Or tamed.)

Hey, what’s a little “emphasis on extreme scenarios” between friends, eh?  It’s all necessary to push that old carbon taxing barrow, right.
