Report below from NewsMax concerning the upcoming environmental-disaster movie, global warning and the likely effect upon the 2004 presidential
WEBMASTER'S NOTE: Most scientists consider global warming a fact but most do not believe this to be a result of human interaction.
Paleo-climatologists only recently learned that "global warming" occurred approximately 20 years before the last ice age. The reasons for the
sudden reversal are complex, having to do with subsurface ocean currents and other little-understood geo functions. But this story below has an
interesting political twist.
From NewsMax May 23: Army Abets Anti-Bush Movie
Supporters of President Bush's re-election are steamed that the U.S. Army has aided the producers of the envirocrat film backed by Al Gore and others

She said the flick was intended to be a "summer entertainment," a "time-honored genre" of the disaster movie, not unlike "aliens landing." The
Army takes no position on the theory of global warming, she said.
NewsMax has interviewed climatologist Patrick Michaels, long a critic of the "global warming" theory, who says liberal politicians and left-wing
groups see "The Day After Tomorrow" as the movie that will make John Kerry president of the United States.
