Global warming: need to act superfast by setting the right priorities

<r>Re: Collector’s post of Wed Jun 04, 08 12:47 PMA volcanic eruption cools the earth for a few years, and then its effects disappear.

Global warming: need to act superfast by setting the right priorities

<r> The Contrarian “Oregon OISM Petition” The UK Telegraph op-ed in ppauper’s post of Fri May 30, 08 03:52 PM is actually referring to the old contrarian OISM (Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine) petition, not the “Manhattan Declaration”. The OISM petition is stale news; it was thoroughly disc...

Moreover the sun’s output has been decreasing lately, in one of its small oscillations. Here are the details. No global w...
