Interesting article on "Global Warming"

Disconcerting as it may be to true believers in global warming, the average temperature on Earth has remained steady or slowly declined during the past decade, despite the continued increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, and now the global temperature is falling precipitously.

All four agencies that track Earth's temperature (the Hadley Climate Research Unit in Britain, the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, the Christy group at the University of Alabama, and Remote Sensing Systems Inc in California) report that it cooled by about 0.7C in 2007. This is the fastest temperature change in the instrumental record and it puts us back where we were in 1930. If the temperature does not soon recover, we will have to conclude that global warming is over.

There is also plenty of anecdotal evidence that 2007 was exceptionally cold. It snowed in Baghdad for the first time in centuries, the winter in China was simply terrible and the extent of Antarctic sea ice in the austral winter was the greatest on record since James Cook discovered the place in 1770.

Cool.

Read up on global dimming,It is believed that the huge increase in fossil fuel use is causing sunlight being prevented from reaching the earth and heating up the planet ,By reducing the use of fossil fuels we may actually cause the earths temperature to rise,In other words depending on whos opinion you listen to whichever way we proceed we are screwed,

friday then?

i'm going out friday, can it wait till saturday?

The other term for "Global Warming" is "Fear". The whole concept is rubbish and has been rubbished by top scientists. I wonder how long it will be before we are told we are heading towards another Ice Age (as we were in the 60s & 70s). In about 15 - 20 years time the Global Warming will rear its clownish head again.
