Hey Ted Turner is the Antichrist according to that cardinal in Milan, so WHO'S side is he REALLY on? I did think tho that he had sold out CNN to Time Warner who in turn have been bought out by AOL.
Don't forget also that Murdoch has huge interest sin the Middle and Far East (Not to mention his native Auz) and is even making inroads into the Chinese media.
Re the other stream of this conversation, Thanks for your very valid points Melmac, Mike et al, I may have shown a bit of bias earlier towards Gore v's Bush and I'm inclined to agree with you that in the longer term it may indeed benefit the Greens hugely and lead to a re-examination by the Dems of their true place (Even tho I had felt from reading Earht in the Balance that if nothign else Gore was all to aware of the crises facing the planet and had made some wondeful proposals even then in 1991 to confront them)
BUT four years in an awful long time in the damage Bush could wreak especially considering all he's managed to do and undo in a mere two months and also considering we've been procrastinating since before Bush's daddy said "Wait and see", I jut wondering how far more we can go before we reach crises point that things becoem irreversable.
Oh and to repeat something I've said here earlier, to all those I'm alright Jack types that say "Well Global warming would benefit Ireland" - The actual likelihood is that it could very well see a diversion of the Gulf Stream that could see Ireland plunged into a climate more like Iceland than that of The South of France not to mention as the recent UN report pppointed out, in addition to the literal effects of rising tides and sea levels, this change would also means the spread of many diseases, specifically Malaria, outside their present area.
So even if you don't expect to be around yourself in 50 years time, if you have any care for your unborn Children I think you owe it to them to be concerned.
