    Most of the data about our climate is equivical. It can be used to support as many theories as there are scientists, even more actually.

    The current fad is to take any set of conditions and extrapolate it out using faulty computer modelling into a catastrophic conclusion. I think we are giving these alarmists too much credit by calling them just alarmists. Exaggeraters is a more meaningful term as it implies the mindset behind their dire predictions. Skeptics have been labelled with the emotionally charged term 'denier', now it is time to find a similar type of term for the alarmists.

    Any other sugguestions out there?

    haha, I was wondering too! Warming, yes. Anthropogenic portion, yes- land use is probably more significant than CO2. Catastrophic conclusions, no way. Just fevered imaginations trying to out do each other in trying to make outlandish predictions.

    Natural climate change? Sure.
    Man made global warming? Doubtful.
