    You want to stop Mother Nature? There is no real evidence man has caused any warming at all. How do you propose we stop it?

    The supposed culprit according to our great and wise Scientists is CO2 increases in the atmosphere. The ONLY real problem with that theory is that through out History CO2 follows rise in Temperature NOT the other way around.

    Further once again, the temperature was raised just a little over 1 degree in a Century. The amount that it was predicted it would rise. The only concern was that a third of that rise occurred in a 15 year time frame. Since 1998 there has been no raise in world wide Temperatures.

    I was told that Florida was going to be under water 20 years ago and it's still there. Imagine that the sky isn't actually falling.

    Well that brings up an interesting question. According to our local warmers and the scientists the poles are melting and we are losing all our Glaciers. YET the rate of sea rise on our shores is steady and constant and has not changed. Where EXACTLY did all that water go?

    Its amazing the scare tactics the left will use in their pet issues, and in the wink of an eye accuse the right of using scare tactics about some other issue....

    fact is, on a geologic time scale, florida has been under water more than it has been out of the water. give it time, the ocean will rise enough to cover it eventually. and further on down the road, it will recede enough that it sticks out as land.

    so things have been getting warmer than they were when people figured out how to watch stuff like that? so what. it will eventually start looking like it's getting cooler and people will get off arguing about whether we were the cause of global cooling.

    the human influence on anything of a global scale is insignificant. probably even the destruction of all the species we know people have destroyed is insignificant too.

    according to our best understanding, the climate has always gone through marked changes and up until comparatively recently, people weren't even present at all.

    i'm afraid this global warming controversy is one of those that i really can't back the position of either side. it's something that happens. adapt or die. simple, really.

    You do realize that 10,000 years ago the seas were much lower..right? You do realize that the Earth has been in an interglacial warming trend since then... right? You do realize that even now the area around the Great Lakes is still rising back from the weight of the ice that was upon it...right? You do realize that on the scale of time for our planet we have been around for quite literally the blink of an eye...right? So let me ask you this...why do we feel we can say what is normal for the world? What is the "correct" temperature? What is the "correct" ocean level? What is the "correct" amount of CO2 in the atmosphere? We havn't even been measuring these things for more than a 100 years in most cases and we know (contrary to what Mann was trying to hide with his hockey stick fraud) that the temperature was much warmer in the Roman times and during the Medieval Warming Period, just as we know that there were periods that were much cooler like the 6th century climate catastrophe and the Little Ice Age of the 16th and 17th centuries. Oh and by the way...when it was warmer... the world was actually a nicer place to live! Interesting how the AGW folks allways seem to leave out how prosperous the world was when it was warmer. Imagine growing grapes in Norway or Greenland being...well...green! Gee I wonder how big the glaciers were when Greenland was green. And fancy that...there was no manmade CO2 to blame for the temperature increase...now you know why Mann was trying to hide that little fact.

    1998 was an exceptionally warm year, as 1985 was a cold year. Look at the 25 year graph on this site, and you can see that the period from 1998 to the present has been far warmer than any other period since we have been keeping instument records.

    Imagine an ignoramous pulling shit out of his ass. No grapes in Greenland. At the best of times, that colony was marginal.

    The hockey stick graph has been confirmed by at least 14 indepentent studies. Even the National Academy of Sciences study, which faulted his statistical methods, found when revised using the methods they preferred, the result was the same.

    Newsvine - Academy Affirms 'Hockey-Stick' Graph

    The academy essentially upholds Mann's findings, although the panel concluded that systematic uncertainties in climate records from before 1600 were not communicated as clearly as they could have been. The NAS also confirmed some problems with the statistics. But the mistakes had a relatively minor impact on the overall finding, says Peter Bloomfield, a statistician at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, who was involved in the latest report. This study was the first of its kind, and they had to make choices at various stages about how the data were processed, he says, adding that he would not be embarrassed to have been involved in the work.
