It all depends on what you mean by free.

WHo decides what are true costs and what is fabricated bullshit to con
hard earned money out of working people????

WHile the establishment scientists tend to support each other on
warming, after decades of warning of an ice age, the majority of people
still doubt that these simulations reflect reality. I am sitting here
with over a foot of snow outside, that started accumulating earlier in
November than at anytime in my life. We normally get at least a few rain
storms here in nov-dec, but have yet to see one, its been too cold. I
also know its colder because the deer migrated to lower altitudes much
earlier than anyone can remeber since maybe the 50's. While this is
just one area, it is an indication that the Gulf Stream thermohaline
conveyor system is weakening, as predicted, which could shut off the
flow of heat to NE NA and northern europe, starting another pre-iceage
