Consider this, if you can. Human CO2 emmissions are not uniform. Most of it comes from industrial societies, so the air above Europe, Western Asia and North America should, and does, have higher levels than, say, Africa or the open ocean. Therefore, there should be a measureable effect due to that higher concentration, right?

Researchers have been looking for two decades. No results that fit the models.

BTW, have you seen the shots from an aerial survey of Greenland, done in the 30s? Those retreating glaciers that clearly "show" warming trends? The same coastlines were bare stone, with glaciers barely visible miles from the water.

Also from Greenland, archaeologists have found Viking farms on the south coast, in places where today the warm season is too short for crops. Must have been all those Dark Ages steelmills and powerplants causing warming then.

Truthy Despite several decades being told we are destroying the planet (remember Ted Danson saying we had 10 years, twenty years ago?)there is no measureable effect on the climate that doesn't compare to other times. And don't give me that stuff about all-time records. The hottest years on record when you do direct data were in the 30s. More importantly, considering the planet is a few billion years old and human history goes back to the ice ages, we have a tiny fraction of a percent of that for recorded temperatures.

I get youngsters telling me how terrible the pollution is. Anyone else remember the Fifties? This is NOTHING!

Playing with other people's lives is Rockefeller's hobby. He has his, he doesn't give a bleep about anyone else. He's helping "THE MASSES", whether they want to be helped or not.

Ever think that they may be more concerned with the well-being of the planet than their own pocketbooks and votes? Please see my posts under the "news" article "Murray brings John Boehner to Wheeling" for some insight into what coal's doing to our fragile globe. You might find it a little more enlightening than the tripe these fools write every day in this rag.
