    Best Global Warming article I have read

    John Coleman's Comments Before the San Diego Chamber of Commerce | KUSI - News, Weather and Sports - San Diego, CA | Coleman's Corner

    Just a different take on the whole global warming thing. Always good to have a balanced perspective.

    Fox News, Glen Beck on CNN, Rush Limbaugh. Do you notice a trend here?

    always good to hear something that reassures you that what you are doing is the right thing even when it is a lie.

    Thanks. I didn't realize that CO2 represented such a small part of the air we breathe. 38 parts out of 100,000

    Hmm, if global warming is not happening yet the frenzy around it causes me to pay out the butt to drive somewhere while millions go hungry because we are turning our food into "cleaner" fuel I would like to take my chances with the weather since it is hard to say what is really happening there, anyways. Gas prices and starving people are much easier to prove.

    Haven't you heard, it is Global CLIMATE Change now. When the facts don't add up you just change a key word or two in the taglines to keep the freight train rolling....

    It sounds like I won't agree with this so I won't read it.

    Thanks!

    Part of the arugement against global warming is that that it is all about the money for those in the saving the earth companies. Think about who makes money in this.

    Re: Best Global Warming article I have read

    The sun spot cycles combining with the warming trend is hard science. We can go back to the middle 1600's and examine these 'Maunder Minimum' periods, and see the result. There was a 50 year period from roughly 1650 to 1700 where there was little to no sunspot activity...and that brought on what was called the Little Ice Age...The Year Without a Summer....ice on lakes in the Northeastern part of this country in June.

    The earth's climate does shift, and science can point to that through the ice shelf records.

    The thing is, we have such a little snapshot of 'recorded history', that I think some folks have overreacted based on our minute amount of data sampling.

    SHould we control emissions? Yes, because that would be good for the air that people breathed, etc. But I just don't think there is manmade global warming.

    The amount of 'bad air' that a volcano can belch out (and that has happened, and it has changed the worldwide climate) is incredibly more dangerous than what man can produce, for a variety of reasons.

    Gotta agree with Jon on this one. He is a slippery one though, you get mad at him about something else and then he comes back with a reasonable and balanced post. Damn him!
