I am talking about a prediction that we will have mini-ice age within about 15 years, which makes a complete mockery of current global warming predicition.
“There is no strong evidence, that global warming is caused by human activity.
The study of deuterium in the Antarctic showed that there were five global warmings and four Ice Ages for the past 400 thousand years. People first appeared on the Earth about 60 thousand years ago.

I love it when some absolute idiot can claim that the big heater in the sky does not control the weather.
How typical and how stupid do they think we are?
We may as well just go back to blaming sprites and fairies.
I wonder who paid for this piece of junk science.
Following your argument, the closest planet to the sun ought to be the hottest, then... right?
Mercury is cooler than Venus, however.

You didn't just say that reall? Venus is hotter than Mercury because it has a much thicker atmosphere. And a much higher pressure sort of like a pressure cooker. Most objects we send to the surface is crushed in a matter of hours not to mention the extreme temperatures and acid rain. But even with that the temperature difference is around 50 degrees.
Who, exactly, has said that?
we are all doomed to die of heat from global warming.
Who, exactly, has said that?
We must save the planet by paying carbon taxes.
Yes, a lot more CO2. What does pressure have to do with it?
It's composition is also a LOT different from Earth, including the pressure of it's atmosphere.
What I tend to see on these boards is: Ignore the sun, it's not important to climate.
An early example of an emission trading system has been the SO2 trading system under the framework of the Acid Rain Program of the 1990 Clean Air Act in the U.S. Under the program, which is essentially a cap-and-trade emissions trading system, SO2 emissions were reduced by 50% from 1980 levels by 2007.

You think paying carbon taxes will help save the earth. That some how giving politicians MORE money will do anything "green" other than line pockets w/easy campaign cash?
Please learn ALL you can about an "exchange" (similar to the NYSE) that was attempted as a start up back at the turn of the century. It was the brainchild of some industrious Chicagoans and was to be called the Chicago a Climate Exchange (CCX) to be a place where carbon "credits" could be bought, sold, traded. And just who were those enterprising denizens of the Windy City? Well, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarett (and family); the Emmanual Brothers, and a newly elected member of the State House of Illinois named Obama (along w/his lawyer wife).
Kinda fascinating to me at least.
Now you may find great comfort in paying a tax on carbon as some sort of modern day green "indulgence" for the sins of "existing" in this time, but I do not.
