It would be silly to blame man.. there's many more women out there.
Also, is there really anyone out there arguing that humans have more to do with warming than our sun?
Satellite images are showing that the cold spell is helping the sea ice expand in coverage by about 2 million square kilometres, compared to the average winter coverage in the previous three years/ 02/18/2008
To fight global warming, a bill in Sacramento would enable Los Angeles County transit officials to increase taxes on motorists.
Global warming at best amounts to less than a degree of temperature increase during the past century. If the recent several-year cooling trend is an indication, global warming may be going away. But because the only "proof" of long-term catastrophic consequences lies in contrived computer models, politicians like Mr. Feuer can insist even as temperatures decline that doomsday still lies ahead unless people tax themselves to fix the problem.
Los Angeles County motorists should ask Mr. Feuer what global temperature would persuade him that a new tax is unneeded. Global warming, now conveniently rechristened "climate change," is perfect for demagoguery. Those advancing the cause won't explain how they will know we have won the global warming fight, let alone what the ideal temperature is supposed to be.

as for brainwashing children for a political stance, i believe that it is wrong, and children should be exposed to equal amounts of both sides of the story. where i live, kids at school stand firmly behind the fact that global warming is real. but they cannot give any reason why they think that.

Would it be OK to show our kids this?
Or is this propaganda too?
How bout this? More propaganda?
Why are the polar ice caps melting if it isn't getting warmer.
I'm not blaming global warming on Man, but somethings up. Perhaps it's all the hot air coming out of Washington.

Could you please share your credentials, and an explanation of how your opinion manages to trump thirty years of research from thousands of other accredited scientists in the fields of climatology and meteorology?

OK Let us say that Global Warming is not real or that even if it is humans have little to know effect on it.
What would you prefer? That everyone burns electrisity all day and night, all lights on in the house, TV's blairing out in each room even if no one is in there, taps left running, the rain forest and the 1,000,000's of species there wiped out, massive gas guzleing cars pumping out tons apon tons of noxious fumes, factories belowing out noxious fumes with no filters, acid rain pouring onto our homes, children and into our drinking water, massive smog bangs over out cities and all the ill health effects that come along with it. Is that really what you would prefer?
Or is it better to teach our kids energy conservation and respect for the natural enviroment, raiseing them in a clean and healthy world filled with many wonderful beutifal and unique species?
