It's time to pray for global warming, says Flint Journal columnist John Tomlinson

    Other than being a whole series of total fabrications, there was nothing factual in the article at all. 650 scientists? Even if that were true, that would be 650 out of 11,000 that attended the conferance. But it is not true. In fact, that is Inhofe's list, a list discredited by many who found themselves on it and wrote angry letters to the lying senator about being included on that list. According to NOAA, 2008 was the eighth warmest year, globaly, on record. And the ice on the Greenland and Antarctic caps continued to melt, even accelerated the rate.

    You people continue to post outright lies and half truths to support your denial about the fact that there is an overwhelming consensus in the scientific community as to the danger and cause of the present warming. The warming is anthropogenic in origin, and it is continueing to warm. In fact, 2008 should have been one of the colder years on record because of the strength and duration of the La Nina event. Instead, it is the eighth warmest on record. Within the next two years we should see an El Nino event, and it will more than likely exceed that of 1998 by far.

    Don't fret...he's never posted anything true or of value yet.

    I suppose we can hope. But well... not really.

    What if both sides of the argument were true? Suppose Co2 emissions from man-made sources do cause the earth to warm and we're also entering into an ice-age? They'd just cancel each other out. :rolleyes:

    All ten of the hottest years on record have happened since 1990. In spite of a strong and long duration La Nina, 2008 tied 2001 as the eighth warmest year on record. That is hardly a sign of cooling.

    Unfortunately, the Milankovic Cycles work far too slowly to cancel the rapid increase in GHGs that man has put into the atmosphere. So, even though we should be starting a slow, prolonged descent into another ice age, what we are seeing is a rapid and accelerating warming.

    Geeze, I've never read more distorted reply's to this thread. No, the 10 hottest years have not been since 1990. Where did you get this from? "Tree Huggers Anonymous?" Take a look back in the 1930's and look at the weather patterns. This is just off the top of my head.
    We do have warming and cooling patterns....for millions of years, as a matter of fact. There have been at least 5 ice ages...along with warming periods to melt them away. This comes from (let me be gentle here) "Solar Cycles." Please feel free to read up on it, and and get educated properly. We had in the 1990's a heating pattern. There were several other planets with warming patterns along with ours. Now, I know it wasn't because of human intervention that this was going on, nor was it cows farting. Let's not let facts get in the way of making mankind the evil species.

    Where do I get my information from? How about NOAA and NASA. For the lower 48 of the US, 1934 was the hottest year. But that is only 2% of the worlds surface. For the globe as a whole, eight of the ten warmest years on record have been since 2000, and the other two were in the '90s. You needn't be gentle in displaying your profound ignorance. It is not 'Solar Cycles', it is Milankovic Cycles.

    No, there are not several other planets with warming patterns along with ours. There are some that are warming because of orbits, because of inclination of axis, and there is one, Uranus, that is cooling significantly.

    As for your other twaddle, grow up, and learn to research a bit before posting your ignorance.
