    I don't like going against the scienific field. I'm a supporter of it but I'm someone that would like to see that slope line upwards somemore before being convinced!

    Everyone has their own levels of personal understanding and acceptability on such issues, so long as you are basing your considerations and understandings of the evidences upon the published mainstream science, I see no reason that you shouldn't be encouraged to keep researching and investigating the issue until you feel confident in your own personal assessments. Good researches, please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you in your efforts.

    I love the statement "there were varied impacts on marine and terrestrial wildlife" implying that it was bad, bad, bad for the life up there, when in fact the opposite was true.

    What specific aspect of "there were varied impacts on marine and terrestrial wildlife" implies to you that changes were "bad, bad, bad for life up there?"
