The Global Warming bunch are out in full force, spouting fiction as fact. It's our fault, it's Bush's fault, it's the SUVs, it's big business. I wish they'd make up their minds! I remember all too well when the threats of an ice age was caused by humans too. The temperature was dropping by leaps and bounds, and we had to "do something". 30 years later, the temperature has risen barely 1 degree Fahrenheit and we're going to burn up. A letter to the editor in the Fond du Lac Distorter...Reporter got my goat this morning: Protect future from global warming
2005 was the hottest year on record, and we are already seeing the signs of global warming, such as melting glaciers and more destructive hurricanes. In Wisconsin, global warming threatens to cause more frequent and extreme droughts, as warmer temperatures evaporate moisture in the soil more quickly. As a recent story in The Reporter points out, this is a problem that needs to be addressed now. Fortunately, we have solutions: clean energy sources, such as wind and solar power, cars that go farther on a gallon of gasoline, more energy efficient buildings and appliances, and more. Not only will these solutions reduce global warming pollution from the largest sources, including power plants, cars and SUVs, they also will decrease our dependence on oil, reduce air pollution, and protect pristine places from oil drilling and mining. To protect our children and future generations, our leaders in Washington must act. U.S. Rep. Tom Petri should sign on to the Safe Climate Act to show leadership on this important issue.

I wasn't aware that Madison was in Congressman Petri's district. Unless I've moved, and nobody told me, this guy should be directing his concerns to Tammy Baldwin. There are so many articles to be found debunking a great deal of the so called science attributing "global warming" to our very existence. Here's just one: The Warmest Year on Whose Record? August 31, 2000
Sometimes it is difficult to remember that nature operates on a geologic time scale. Human beings have a tendency to take short-term trends and extrapolate them to ominous doomsday scenarios.
Also, There is No Global Warming, from the American Policy Center. I couldn't find the date this was published, but it had to be within the last 10 years because it refers to Kyoto and the Clinton administration.
How about the reports that the polar ice cap is melting? Well, yes it is. In fact, it has been for about a million years or so. We are at the end of the ice age in which ice covered most of North American and Northern Europe. There's at least one environmentalist, named Al Gore, who is panicking over the possibility that we may soon lose Glacier National Park in Montana because the ice is melting. One hates to tell him that we've already lost the glacier that used to cover the whole country.
Thankfully, the U.S. did NOT sign on to this disastrous Accord. Even though it's an older article, it's still extremely interesting. The environmental nazis really annoy me! We're allowing them to dictate how we live our lives and what we do with our own property. It's just a matter of time before they all insist we commit suicide so we can't have any affect on the world. Well, we have little to NO effect on this planet. It goes through cycles, and if it's getting warmer, I'm gonna be a happy camper! A related article: Campaign Seeks 'Religious Response to Global Warming'
