About that global warming...

Here's the headline:
Climategate U-turn as scientist at centre of row admits: There has been no global warming since 1995
I've felt for years that global "warming" was a crock but it's truly amazing how fast the entire charade is falling apart. (HT: Mark Steyn at NRO's Corner)

If you don't like global warming, you should like this article:

On the other hand, Inhofe has been opposed to the idea of climate change forever, probably because of his religious beliefs, combined with being an Oklahoman. I had a discussion with a relative from Texas back in January, in which he insisted that either 1) global warming isn't happening, because God made the world the way He wanted it, and it couldn't change, or 2) if it was happening, we weren't doing it, because God made the world and we weren't powerful enough to change His work, or 3) if it happening, God was doing it, and there was nothing we could do to stop it.

The idea that nothing's happening, we didn't do it, and we couldn't stop it if we wanted to, comes together to be very convenient if you own a coal mine, a coal-fired electric power plant, an oil or chemical company, or a gaz-guzzling SUV.

I don't buy it. I think people like Inhofe, who oppose climate change talk for their own reasons, are deliberately misinterpreting discussions among scientists to support their own irrational beliefs.

If you don't like global warming, you'll love this article. Maybe Senator Inhofe will find something. Personally, I think the anti-climate-change position is nonsense, and the "climategate" furor has been concocted by people who don't understand how science works. Creationism applied to climate science.

Sorry about that. I had forgotten that you've got mediation turned on, so when I submitted the first piece it just disappeared. I didn't notice the notice that you would review it. So the second post is pretty much a duplicate of the first, but without a lot of detail.
