    In a break from the soft-gloves approach many in the science community have up to this point utilized when questioning the premise of man-made global warming, Japanese scientists describe the anthropogenic belief as an "unprovable hypothesis" and goes on to state, "the opinion that great disaster will really happen must be broken."

    This same report indicates earth has natural temperature fluxuation cycles every 30 to 50 years, and that the warming trend of the last half of the 20th Century halted in 2000 and temperatures have now seen marginal declines.

    One more nail in the coffin.

    Now, the problem is to help our gullible compatriots find a replacement-crisis.

    My suggestion is to explain to them that the massive emigration of retirees to the southern climes is about to tip the continent over. Can they wring their hands over that one?

    Only if they can make a buck off the hysteria and bother sane people while doing it.

    I love the Japanese scientists ... they are less likely to be swayed the same way ours are for one simple reason, their culture wouldn't allow it.

    You know, I truly wish you people were correct. But you are not. And these scientists are going to lose buku credibility within the next three years. How they can say what they have said in the face of what is happening in the cryosphere, and the increasing severity of droughts and floods, will haunt their careers for the rest of their lives.

    Ask yourselves how much food does California and Texas normally grow? What of the wheat crops in Australia? The Yantge-ze river is at it's lowest level in 142 years. And this is the end of winter.

    And there is also a drought in South-east Asia.

    Think about the combined effects.

    Rocks ... explain how it is that we have decreased our pollution significantly in the last ten years by using all this "green" stuff (most mandatory now) and yet the "problem" is still increasing so drastically?

    Kitten, we have not decreased the amount of CO2 that we put into the atmosphere. In fact, we, the human race, all of us, have vastly increased it. Due to the change in rice cultivation to dry land rice, the methane levels had leveled off, but now, because of much sooner than expected feedbacks in the Arctic permafros and Arctic Ocean clathrates, methane is once again rapidly rising.

    The decreased pollution that you speak of actually decreased the warming by the reflection of sunlight back into space by the aerosols. However, it also destroyed our forests and freshwater fisheries, as well as dramatically increased the incidence of asthma in our population.

    Hmm ... odd, since all these forced changes made costing billions and completely changing the way we live to match the "green" ways ... you'd think there'd be some kind of dent by now ... unless you want to concede that it doesn't do anything at all.

    Kitten, do you ever read what is written? And I challenge the costing billions part. How is cleaning up the environment in a manner that saves children from asthma, and stops the destruction of life in our fresh waters in any way costing us? It is saving the best things in life for our children.

    Now I addressed the kind of pollution that was addressed by our laws. CO2 has yet to be addressed by law. So there has been no positive affect. Again, do you read what is written before you post, and do you ever consider what the meaning of what you are saying?
