    Uhhhh.... I don't get it.
    The climate being warmer causes stored cold water (ice) to melt and become mixed in our global climate, thus making for cooler weather for the short time that it takes the newly cold water to warm in the oceans.

    If you drop ice in a pool it dramatically cools the water around where the ice was dropped. The coolness fades as the water in that area spreads and mixes with the warmer water around it and later becomes warm itself by the sun. The water was turned temporarily cooler due to the ice melting from the warming around it. It's not that hard to understand.

    In the service, we always stepped off on our left foot. SO, that's probably what we have to do to stay in lockstep with the Libbos.

    Does anyone else think that the science isn't quite as settled as Algore would like us to think?

    U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming

    Washington Post and Science magazine

    The world could be as little as 15 or 25 years away from a disastrous new ice age, a leading atmospheric scientist predicts. Dr. S. I. Rasool of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and Columbia University used a computer program by his colleague, Prof. James Hansen, that studied clouds above Venus.

    By 2021, fossil-fuel dust injected by man into the atmosphere could screen out so much sunlight that the average temperature could drop by six degrees, resulting in a buildup of new glaciers that could eventually cover huge areas.

    Please point to any part of the constitution or a law which says the government lacks the right to regulate those behaviors.

    Which of those freedoms are being infringed on? Is it illegal for you to own a truck, motorcycle, or boat?

    The toilet and thermostat items have nothing to to do Global warming and everything to do with energy conservation for the energy suppliers to be able to keep up with the demands of the populace and be as efficient waste wise as possible. This isn't governmental though. It's dictated by the companies you CHOOSE to purchase services from.

    Well, Al Gore's net wealth has increased from $1 million to $100 million since he watched Bush be inaugurated.

    I need me some global warming, too, for my bank account.

    Show me where in the Constitution where the government has the authority to regulate what property I own.

    As far as my thermostat goes,

    "guards against searches, arrests, and seizures of property without a specific warrant or a "probable cause" to believe a crime has been committed."

    If I'm paying the bill, I have the inaliable right to set my thermostat where ever I please.

    To be eligible for that the government must be doing something to remove your right. What law is removing your right to own a truck, boat, or motorcycle?

    What law removes your right to adjust your thermostat?
