Man's Hubris

* The climate is changing! The 10 hottest years on record have
occurred since 1990. In fact 2005 was the hottest year since record
keeping
began.*


And it always will change. Why should the earth stop being the earth just because it inconveniences us?
Man, in his typical arrogance, now thinks he can control the climate.

Bollocks!

Anyone who has done even the smallest study of geography/science at school knows that our climate has always changed.

Pollution is another matter entirely, and yes we need to change the way we do things. But don't lets kid ourselves that we can stop the way the earth works!

Why are we all not thinking about this? Why can't we see that we are being lied to?

More tax anyone?

Well said Colin
I agree with you. Looking at climate changes in the past there have been times when it has been warmer. They said is it now warmer than in the 1700s but it was really warm then and we had the thames frozen in the 1800s cause they used to have ice fairs on the thames.
Like you said a load of bollocks :-)

Just wondering how your scan went? Any news?
Hope all is well

Get a copy of the movie American President with Michael Douglas. Go to the biggie scene at the end when he makes his big speech. This is so accurate - politicians or political machines want to make us afraid and point to something or their opponent and say they are to fault.

Anyway, my test results are iffy - nothing now but I have to go back in 6 months rather than the normal 12. Something needs watching.

I hope your scan came out better - that all is or will be ok shortly.

I agree, also. I wonder who was alive several thousands of years ago to document the temperatures the last time Earth wobbled a bit. Oh, for Heaven's sake!
