Nancy goes to the experts on Global Warming

Pelosi asks Yahoo users how to solve climate change.
(my head hurts just typing that)

So far, more than 27,000 people have posted responses to Pelosi’s query on what they would like to see included in global warming legislation. Among the recommendations on how Congress should stop global warming:

Impose a national greenhouse gas emissions cap;
Mandate increased vehicle fuel efficiency;
Promote mass transit and bicycling to discourage suburban sprawl.

Yahoo Answers features the usual Digg-style user voting on every response, subject to the vagaries of the mob. Thus warnings to reject “eco-Marxism” received top ratings and contributions by environmental experts Lester Brown and Simran Sethi were so low-rated that Yahoo hid them from display. (tee-hee)
