I have audio of my sis and BIL mocking global warming from '95.
I was pretty well versed on subject in 90s, having edited lots of journal articles, IPCC findings, USGS projections, etc.

I had a home studio set up then and at my invitation, and my sister and brother and law went on record w/ all the Republican, "liberal agenda," Rush Limbaugh, "junk science" proclamations, etc.

I *told* them prior to recording I was going to give this to their kids some day.

Kids are 13 and 14 now and the eldest is "getting green." My sis--not so sure about BIL--now holds it's part of a natural cycle. Unaware of any science but FOX News reductions, she's sure we played no part in amplifying this cycle. And she mocks carbon footprint talk, i.e. cuts down shade trees around their McMansion, drives a big ass truck that has never hauled a think except a "W" bumper-sticker, etc.

So, given the original purpose of these recordings, would an MP3 of this be an appropriate stocking stuffer? We've kind of been in a truce since the Bush II invasion of Iraq, so I've got mixed emotions.

4. OK. You're the entity on my shoulder I'm leaning towards
That is, I'm leaning towards doing it. There may be *some* mercy involved, however.

3. Yeah I was gonna put it on a CD of MP3s of some of my recordings,
music they like from my era, etc. A little surprise in their i-pod shuffle maybe. Along with other physical gifts as well.

6. I wish I had that for the ones who mocked me.
Even my own father, a staunch Dem, mocked me for this issue in the 90's. Naturally, he now believes. x(
