    That the Earth has gone through periods of warming and cooling throughout its history has not been challenged.

    Is man playing a role in any current temperature changes? That is up in the air. The science is not settled. Your questions are too simplistic.
    CS seems to think that the science is settled. According to him, global warming in the 20th Century was natural and that's all there is to it.

    I'll say what I said 5 or so years ago, lets not throw trillions at it. Lets just wait like we did in the 70's when globall cooling was the craze and wait for the next chicken little scheme the left will come up with to steal wealth!
    Its cold in Florida!

And its still warming - just slower.

    Not at all Wilbur. Actual temps have shown a slight decrease - not really a significant decrease, but a decrease just the same.

    There is nothing settled, but what we have witnessed is not unprecedented. It is my OPINION that it is all natural, but I am not willing to say that definitively.

    What I CAN say definitively is that a lot of the so-called evidence for anthropogenic global warming is dubious at best.

    Here's a nice chart.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    10 years. A decrease of roughly .05 degrees.

    HADCRUT3 shows slight warming in the most recent 10 year span:



    Which 10 year span are you referring to?

    I love how they arbitrarily assume an upward trend.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
