GCC (again)

WASHINGTON, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new analysis of peer-reviewed literature reveals that more than 500 scientists have published evidence refuting at least one element of current man-made global warming scares. More than 300 of the scientists found evidence that 1) a natural moderate 1,500-year climate cycle has produced more than a dozen global warmings similar to ours since the last Ice Age and/or that 2) our Modern Warming is linked strongly to variations in the sun's irradiance. "This data and the list of scientists make a mockery of recent claims that a scientific consensus blames humans as the primary cause of global temperature increases since 1850," said Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Dennis Avery.

Other researchers found evidence that 3) sea levels are failing to rise importantly; 4) that our storms and droughts are becoming fewer and milder with this warming as they did during previous global warmings; 5) that human deaths will be reduced with warming because cold kills twice as many people as heat; and 6) that corals, trees, birds, mammals, and butterflies are adapting well to the routine reality of changing climate.[link]
Again, this won't change the minds of James and others like him, but it should open them abit more :) Since this is based on writings, there will always be wiggle room, but the thought that the only evidence presented for future warming due to man is in fact computer models should hurt. As Martin (MVRWC) says, " me a computer model and I’ll show you whatever you want me to."

When they get the models to correctly predict last weeks weather, maybe I'll listen more. When they can get the models to correctly predict weather a month from now, I'll listen even more. They can't do this now, yet the computer models are 'spot-on' in predicting what will happen 50-100 years from now. As Hillary would say, "...really [would] require the willing suspension of disbelief.”

Yes, it's been going on for ever but that's no excuse for us to treat our wonderful planet wit anything less than respect.

There used to be hot plains where we live (in the rainy green valleys of Wales) and rhinoceroses and things.


 Recently played a few games on Caldera (warzone) and then... Lots of luck in this one, but satisfying
