Tee hee, is all I can say.

The question remains, how many years would temperatures have to stay constant or start failing before Al Gore shuts his fat stupid face?

Funny thing is Ed I think whatyou are saying is right the problem is a bit more subtle. It is that enviromentalists allow the case to be blurred by exaggerating but also by relying on populist quasi science that is utterly wrong but convenient and more or less describes the weather .

I still believe there is a sound enough case for precautionary measures at least
