February 13th, 2006, 2:43 pm

Given last weekend's record snowstorm, mitigating the ice age is now more important than ever

There IS a problem with global warming... it stopped in 1998QuoteThe problem here is not that of climate change per se, but rather that of the sophisticated scientific brainwashing that has been inflicted on the public, bureaucrats and politicians alike. Governments generally choose not to receive policy advice on climate from independent scientists. Rather, they seek guidance from their own self-interested science bureaucracies and senior advisers, or from the IPCC itself. No matter how accurate it may be, cautious and politically non-correct science advice is not welcomed in Westminster, and nor is it widely reported.

If environmentalism is the new serfdom, I guess global warming is the new dragon. Seems like good material for a children's book.It would be amusing to take bets when the first person will try to claim credit for successfully stopping global warming. It will create problems for the people still holding themselves out as saving you.

The fears over global cooling continue....Russian scientist predicts global coolingQuoteA Russian scientist predicts a period of global cooling in coming decades, followed by a warmer interval. Khabibullo Abdusamatov expects a repeat of the period known as the Little Ice Age. During the 16th century, the Baltic Sea froze so hard that hotels were built on the ice for people crossing the sea in coaches. The Little Ice Age is believed to have contributed to the end of the Norse colony in Greenland, which was founded during an interval of much warmer weather. Abdusamatov and his colleagues at the Russian Academy of Sciences astronomical observatory said the prediction is based on measurement of solar emissions, Novosti reported. They expect the cooling to begin within a few years and to reach its peak between 2055 and 2060.

QuoteOriginally posted in: Detroit sets record for its earliest snow, breaking mark set in 1909...Which could mean bad things for global warming,....Poor global warming, it has such as hard life. I also liked how all the weather reporters wailed and gnashed their teeth that this year didn't span enough category-4 hurricanes to suit the doom-sayers. The reporters seemed genuinely saddened that we didn't get Katrina II.The climate giveth and the climate taketh away.

Thanks for the verification that global warming really exists and is affecting the weather patterns as predicted.

QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperdog farts: blame global warmingActually, dog farts contain methane which is 21 times as potent as CO2 as a greenhouse gas. Thus proper statement is:global warming: blame dog farts.
