    Now how can this be true if global warming skeptics are telling us that the world has been cooling down since 1998?

    I'll argue for them that this is a random event as part of our departure from the ice age, a natural recession of the glaciers, or part of a natural warming cycle.

    Really I don't believe it, but I'll make sure conversation isn't boring.

    Has anyone thought to tell this to Phil Jones? You know he resigned in disgrace, right?

    So the data contained in the emails that show the data to be fudged and that the scientists were really struggling to show increased temps really isn't there and we are all just hallucinating due to the extreme heat? :lol:

    I heard he has an iced tea booth set up in the red light district and in between tricks he is writing his memoirs.

    He is finding the writing hard though because he threw out all of his original notes.

    Yep...that is a possibility.

    But the climate deniers claim the earth is cooling down and has been since 1998. :confused:

    No, he did not. He stepped aside until an investigation is complete.

    Or they will be until 2010 is done. Then they will find some other reason to deny the physics of GHGs.

    And not a single thing that you claim is true.

    However, for people like yourself, the willfully ignorant, the people that put ideological purity above the welfare of their descendents, you will spout any lie that is conveniant to hide an inconveniant truth.
