Oh puh_leeez. The earth has been the same tempreture for 4 billion years before the SUV was invented.
After the 300 yrs. of the 'Little Ice Age', the climate returned to normal in as little as one decade. The next ice age could come like a thief in the night.
Has anyone noticed that your hottest days come in advance of a cold front?

This can't be true. Why, 19 "leading climatologists" just told USA Today that Algore's movie is 100% correct, except for the part where he gets the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets mixed up.

Interesting. We arrived in the Frozen North in late June of 1986, and on Independence Day it was over 100 degrees. I had to take my youngest daughter home with heat exhaustion. The following summer was similar.
Since the early 90s temps have noticeably cooled, to the point where so far this summer the temps have averaged in the mid to upper 60s and have only occasionally gone into the 70s. Furthermore, in this officially semiarid region, it it's not raining or showering, it's smoking (forest fires). Something to think about, just for the record.

Big deal. Thermometers. Phooey.
More trustworthy are complicated "models" that keep grant money flowing to climatologists who'll play the game.

It's almost impossible to have a reasoned debate on this topic; since it's become a presumed "moral" issue, and also is shaping up to be a wedge issue for the U.S. Presidential election.
One thing I've found effective is to challenge "Goreian" global-warming chicken-littles to put their money where their mouth is. Gore bought "Certified Emission Reduction Credits" to make his air travel promoting his slide show and movie "carbon neutral". Tell anyone who insists that this is a crisis and that we have to "do something"; that they can copy Gore; and refer them to the "Survey of Offset Services" at this site:
The price of these "offsets" is about what we would be paying Russia, etc. under Kyoto. Tell them to "put up or shut up". Most won't put up (or shut up either, unfortunately) -- those who do are deluded; but, at least they gain my respect for demonstrating their sincerity. I don't care if they waste their money -- just so long as they don't force me to waste my money too (as Kyoto would have done).
UT OH....looks like Algore got it all backassward....he meant to say the earth is cooling down....not heating up.....(checking his notes to see what he said...."Kerry ordered a new pair of flip flops"...."Mrs. Kerry needs another batch of raisins"...."Clinton needs me to lie about his whereabouts again"...."Oh yeah, I was suppost to call Hillary back"....nope, no notes in here that said he said the wrong thing.....must have said the right thing.....but got it wrong again....

Does any of this global warming BS ever consider that the sun's output has varied greatly over time. We had several ice ages where most of the planet was frozen before there could have been any significant human intervention ...what caused those? Why do we have a record of great climate changes in relatively recent history that again occurred before there was any industrialization? These are the inconvenient truths that Al Gore conveniently misses.

Don't do anything! Leave the global warming/cooling alone as a booby trap for the Tali Ban. Shortly after they take over the world,,,,POOF! KABOOM! It's all over.
