Here's a terrific movie
about Global Warming that puts a major smackdown on Al Gore's little cottage industry. I'm a skeptic on this stuff, but I also watch with a critical eye, and this movie really impressed the heck out of me, despite the occasional silly music.
Here's a good article from Fox News on the GW story that points out evidence from other planets in our solar system that the warming is coming from the sun
, despite apparently agreeing with the "consensus" on man-made causes:
While evidence suggests fluctuations in solar activity can affect climate on Earth, and that it has done so in the past, the majority of climate scientists and astrophysicists agree that the sun is not to blame for the current and historically sudden uptick in global temperatures on Earth, which seems to be mostly a mess created by our own species.
Meanwhile, here's a claim that sea "levels" are rising
Sea levels, rising at 1 millimetre a year before the industrial revolution, are now rising by 3 millimetres a year because of a combination of global warming, polar ice-melting and long natural cycles of sea level change.
"All indications are that it's going to get faster," said Eric Lindstrom, head of oceanography at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), told Reuters on the sidelines of a global oceans conference in Hobart.
And on the humor front, a trek intended to draw attention to global warming has had to be called off because of frostbite
A North Pole expedition meant to bring attention to global warming was called off after one of the explorers got frostbite. The explorers, Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen, on Saturday called off what was intended to be a 530-mile trek across the Arctic Ocean after Arnesen suffered frostbite in three of her toes, and extreme cold temperatures drained the batteries in some of their electronic equipment.
