You CAN sign (signify) what you are for
in the Earth Summit.
You should not expect me to be impressed
with your quoting Rush Limbaugh as an
expert on public policy issues, including
biological science or the environment.

If you could demonstrate that he or you
have ANY real claim to be taken seriously
as authorities, beyond the quality of your
logic or newsgathering abilities, would you
please take the time to do so now?

Please read it carefully. The difference between science and the process of influencing an audience is sometimes the difference between substance and style. We should also admit the broadcast news organizations are sometimes a great threat to America's freedom -- not when they're a free press, but when they verge on being puppetmasters, and some would like to be!
Do they take an oath of allegiance to the Constitution to be advocasy journalists?

I'm not sure where they're taking us. But in some countries, "propagandists" served the bad side, the dishonest side.
