    Global warming is not a myth.

    I only say so because I believe that those that believe it is not suffer from a mild form of political insanity, in that they tend to imply a global conspiracy.

    There I answered it.

    Not a myth. The ice shelf that covered about half of N. America has been receding for about 12K years now and that's how long the planet has been warming this time. If it wasn't warming we wouldn't be here in the numbers we are. Our effect on the planet is just as natural as any other part of the ecology, i.e., volcanic eruption, el nino, viral pandemics, bovine methane production.

    It has nothing to do with industrialization. It has to do with a bunch of greedy hysterical chicken littles trying to make a buck and get big bad USA to fund the third world through the UN. We should close the doors on the UN and evict the idiots.

    Oh, it goes much further than that -- AGW is the means thru which the left hopes to cripple capitalism, end 'affluenza' and criminalize wealth.

    Criminalize wealth?

    Is that in the imaginary leftist manifesto you've written in your head.

    Re: Is Global Warming a myth?

    2007, the date mainstream science debate ended on the causes of global warming, and the methods to reduce it.

    "National Academy of Sciences: 2007 Joint science academies’ statement on growth and responsibility: sustainability, energy efficiency and climate protection:

    The problem is not yet insoluble, but becomes more difficult with each passing day. A goal of confining global warming to an average of 2 centigrade degrees above pre-industrial levels would be very challenging, and even this amount of warming would be likely to have some severe impacts. . . .

    We call on world leaders, especially those meeting at the G8 Summit in June 2007, to:
    • Set standards and promote economic instruments for efficiency, and commit to promoting energy efficiency for buildings, devices, motors, transportation systems
    and in the energy sector itself.
    • Promote understanding of climate and energy issues and encourage necessary behavioural changes within our societies.
    • Define and implement measures to reduce global deforestation.
    • Strengthen economic and technological exchange with developing countries, in order to leapfrog to cleaner and more efficient modern technologies.
    • Invest strongly in science and technology related to energy efficiency, zero-carbon energy resources and carbon-removing technologies.

    Here is a press release from the National Academy of Sciences (USA) which opens with the words “Climate Change is real”. It’s conclusion begins with “We urge all nations, in the line with the UNFCCC principles, to take prompt action to reduce the causes of climate change, adapt to its impacts and ensure that the issue is included in all relevant national and international strategies.” It recognizes the international consensus of the IPCC (2001), IEA (2004), and UNFCCC.

    The problem is it is being proven to be lies and corruption.

    Which scientific organization do you regard more highly than the National Academy of Science in concurrence with all the other major country's science academies?
