    Is the discovery channel article trying to have it both ways? Article says it is cooling, may cool for 30 years, but then global warming may get us.

    This is the specious at best argument that the left wing extremist man-caused-global-warming advocates hang their hats on!

    Just a thought ... should I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday, can tell us that the polar icecaps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius?

    Actually, I think it's kind of refreshing to see intellectual honesty among these scientists.

    You don't get to the truth by stifling challenge. The skeptics of global warming theory should be welcomed if getting to truth is the goal.

    Not so sure that I want to put my eggs in Greenpeace's basket.

    Absolutely agree with you. Both sides of a debate should be equally heard. The debate should be based on ones arguments and evidence, from there you can determine where the truth lies. When politicians and big business get involved that is when the issue becomes muddied with ideology and dogmatic positions.

    Interesting conference and great article.

    Wow, it is so surprising that Exxon/Mobil is the major past funder of the organization behind the conference, isn't it. I am also glad to see that economists now get to lend their expertise to the debate on climate change. They too are so good at modeling future events.
    My favorite from the NYT piece is:
    There are notable absences from the conference this year. Russell Seitz, a physicist from Cambridge, Mass., gave a talk at last year’s meeting. But Dr. Seitz, who has lambasted environmental campaigners as distorting climate science, now warns that the skeptics are in danger of doing the same thing.

    The most strident advocates on either side of the global warming debate, he said, are “equally oblivious to the data they seek to discount or dramatize.”
