RE: Global Warming Over?
I believe the conclusion on this subject being proposed is that during rest of an adult American's lifetime, assuming they are 30 years old today, or older, there is no evidence the world will end due to global warning, so why worry. It is a philosophy that works quite conveniently for some; MAD magazine made a whole business work on their mascot, Alfred E. Newman's motto "What, Me Worry?"
We have beaten this subject to a pulp in the past, and this is the first time I have heard the argument that the data does not suppport a conclusion there is a warming trend that has started. Past arguments, which held a little more water, merely suggested the reason for the warming trend was debatable. The latest argument, sorry 430, appears to be "cherry picking" of the type that was used to support the invasion of Iraq. And, just to get this over with and avoid building any tension about when the Nazi comparison will follow, that Iraq invasion justification was a bit of opinion manipulation technique borrowed from the White House's masters, Hitler and his direct reports.
