So he points it out to the man in the info center and like a robot he says "There is global warming."

The man is a doctor too. So he's no dummy. He has a patient who knows Al Gore who believes in Gore-gw and thinks Gore is brilliant. Has lots of dough. My friend told me that he gives thsi patient a hard time all the time about Gore and GW. So he told him about his last trip and eagerly this man asked: "So the glacier is melting faster right?" Nope.

Now ya' know what's scary....the UN is trying to make it illegal to say GW is not happening, as in crisis mode. Nice! My friend told me it's gotten to the point where meteorolgists are going to be stripped of their credentials if they don't tow the line.
Some of the things I have always found interesting is how much Antarctica is brought up as if we have been studying it for centuries. Sure we can look at the ice, but how much is skewed by the fact that we can't tell anything about other years that the ice has melted. It isn't even until VERY recently that we could even notice that a big piece fell off.

Is it a good idea to stop burning fossil fuels, absolutely. Is it a good idea to worry about the climate, of course it is. Do humans destroy everything we touch, eh, not so much.
