    Well the water temperature down around Antartica has decreased to the point where sea ice is INCREASING. One should see more iceburgs.

    We simply cannot afford to gamble... by ignoring it. We cannot risk inaction. These scientists who say we are merely entering a period of climate instability are acting irresponsibly. The indications that our climate can soon change for the worse are too strong to be reasonably ignored.

    - 1978 Lowell Ponte, The Cooling p. 237 (about global cooling)

    We can conjure up any scenarios our imagination(s) can muster by measuring the non-linear variables of environmental systems. People always assume that they are linear, but they are not - this is why meteorologists make 10 day forecasts that are sometimes revealed as moot once the rain doesn't come. If we can't predict the weather accurately within a 10 day timespan, or even a span of months, then how could we possible manage to forecast a global catastrophe in the next 50 years?

    Seriously, I don't know about the whole global warming hysteria. Clearly in parts of the world there has been a trend of higher temperatures in the last century. Also as has been noted the largest mass of ice on earth, Antarctica, is growing (although there are reports that it is less dense/thiner).

    My intuition tells me that well beyond global warming, the human race spouting poisons and pollution into the environment/atmosphere is a bad thing. Be it flooding the earth, messing with the biodiversity, limiting protection from solar radiation, deforestation, releasing new plagues etc...esentially its treating this planet like Corey Haim treated his body and with similar results.

    So children be good to yo Mama.

    Most of the world.

    But not every single region.

    The fact that you think you stand for science is the biggest mockery of all.

    Though concession I'll make is that global warming is a poorly chosen term. The weath system is become unstable, and that includes potentially extreme heat and extreme cold. To give you an example, if the permafrost melts off of antarctica, then fresh water poors into the ocean in huge quantities. Those could result in a dramatic amount of desalinization, which in turn disrupts the gulf stream, which is what keep Europe unusually warm for its longitude.
