    Canada quits Kyoto climate pact - CNN.com

    The theory that human activity is primarily responsible for the increase in temperatures since 1850 is collapsing in terms of how many in the public buy into it. The recent cooling temperatures (no matter what statistical lies Hansen publishes from NASA) that we have seen for the last ten years, the realization of new factors that reduce likely human cause, and the revealed fudging of data and the conspiracy on the part of a handful of scientists to silence opponents, have them shunned as well as any publication that publishes sceptical work have all but destroeyd the AGW theory.

    All I can say is 'About damned time' people started observing that the Emporer has no clothes.

    Cooling for the past decade? Are you completely around the bend?

    There has been no cooling for the last decade. In fact, this has been the warmest decade on record. No matter which measure your use, GISS, HadCrut, or UAH, the last ten years have been the warmest on record, in spite of low TSI and several strong La Ninas, and no strong El Ninos. The fist strong El Nino that we get will blow 1998 completely out of the water.

    You are a sharp guy, Old Rocks, and I dont want to get into some pejorative back-and-forth, but we hit the peak temps in 1998, and since then we have been on a shallow slope down in average temperatures.

    While I respect NASA, Hansen is full of crap.

    Canada's position has nothing to do with science and everything to do with oil sands.

    My bet is that it has to do with both those things and the simple fact that the US is not following them, so why should they?

    Why should anyone? It was a bad idea from the get-go.

    Only because of shenanigans. Take away the "adjustments" and voila the 1930's are still the warmest. Certainly all the written history points to that decade being the warmest. They certainly didn't have snow records being set then, unlike now.

    That's OK, CO2 has nothing to do with temperature increases so they're even.
