    but actually, i am not a "true" athiest, so be careful not to label me. i just have my own independent free thinking being a geologist and one who has put his hands on the history of the earth, and i just dont see that meshing with the old testament books. however, i have no issues with the ten commandments posted in a courthouse, i fully back the public display of mangers and christmas trees and all things so related - and i want prayer in public school and keep "In God We Trust" on our currency. i support all religions and their right to apostatize peacefully, but this country was founded on christian principles and i prefer it to remain so. i just ascribe to no one religion personally - yet i have spent several hundred thousands of dollars putting my kids through catholic school and defend their right to their own personal choice.

    so put away the broad brush and dont judge - wwjd - right? its all in how we steer our own lives and treat our fellow man, thats all Jesus would care about at the end of the day. its all so very simple.

    Like I've said before, to accept global warming as put forth currently, is only slightly less foolish than to dismiss it!
    I can accept the data that there is a warming trend ... but have more difficulty accepting that the trend is a long-term indication, or just part of a cycle.

    Also have difficulty accepting that we know the "why" for the present warming trend & that we can make significant impact by the remedies proposed. As you and I both mentioned, unless we include population considerations in the computations as well, we are dealing with incomplete data.

    Looking at data over just a 10 year period is statistically insignificant in the big picture. Also, ignoring data such as activity from under water volcanos or solar activity, or affect from water and water vapor makes any conclusions from just CO2 trash.

    You're forgetting one VERY important force of nature here, Terry...the liberal left.....

    What they SAY global warming is, and what global warming IS, is two VERY different things regards,

    New research finds that the airborne fraction of carbon dioxide has not increased either during the past 150 years or during the most recent five decades, contrary to some recent studies.

    This finding was just published yesterday in a scientific journal.

    It was impossible, so it took a little longer to accomplish.
