Plans to implement a worldwide carbon tax in the name of saving the planet from global warming have taken another blow after it was revealed that Alaskan glaciers have grown for the first time in 250 years after an abnormally cool summer....
Man-made global warming adherents have attempted to downplay such instances as aberrations that defy a wider warming trend, but in reality no global warming has been observed since at least 1999 or even 1995....
Most scientists oppose the minority that has used the present lull in warming to cast doubt on the size of threat from manmade global temperature rises.
"Let's say there wasn't much of a warming for the next 10 years, how will the public and politicians play this out?" said Bob Watson, former IPCC head and current chief scientific adviser to Britain's environment ministry.
He said it was important to explain that fluctuations were an expected part of a general, manmade warming trend.
the fact that the planet and the cosmos will continue long after man has expired hardly releases us from our responsibilities in regard to being the possible cause of a mass extinction event.

so alaskas glaciers grew but the artic ice sheet became an island, weird!!
it seems to me that we don't really have a clue whats going on, but cooling or warming, it's all bad.
The worry behind Climate change is that the ice caps may melt, lowering the salinity in the oceans, raising the water levels globally, and changing the ocean currents.
