This is funny!!

"Global warming doesn't mean every year will be warmer than the last. And it may be that we are in a period of less rapid warming."

So is it getting warmer or not? 1 plus 1 = 2 1 - 1 = 0 If this year is cooler than last year how is that "Global Warming"?

How long does it take to heat up 10 gazillion tons of water anyway?

When I was a kid, the scientists were all warning of a global cooling... a new ice age.

It's all bollocks.

When the scientists can start to reliably predict the weather next week and next month, let alone tomorrow, I'll start listening.

It does seem that a lot of evidence has been deliberately falsified, right up to the highest levels. God knows what the truth is, but it's surely undeniable that weather world-wide has become more erratic and unpredictable.

The great "Global Warming" hoax (?) should not be confused with the necessity for good stewardship.

One does not have to become a card carrying member of tree huggers’ anonymous to realize the validity of recycling, controlling air and water pollution and the development of alternative and cleaner energy sources.

Being "conservative" does not by definition make me a squanderer of natural resources, though it does make me skeptical of the multi billion dollar industry that has grown around first the freeze that was to doom us all in the 70's followed by the more recent threats of the potential flooding of Manhattan by a melting polar ice cap that I was far more in favor of!

Those who wield power only when a crisis or struggle continues are those least likely to admit that the crisis should be downgraded to merely a cyclical weather pattern?

When the first polar bear is sighted north of the cut, I'm calling Al Gore and begging his forgiveness.

I'd be far more worried to see them SOUTH of the cut, although for now they are several thousand miles north!

I can't prove you wrong, and nor do I have prepared statistics to defend my statement. You only have to look at weather patterns here and in many other places to realise that something seems to be going on. Britain has experienced unprecedented rains and floods over the past couple of years, and rainfall patterns over mainland Europe have left formerly arable areas desolate. Centuries old vines in some areas have died, and southern Britain is returning to its position of centuries ago in becoming again a major wine producing area. When I was a child there that was inconceivable.
