That might not be a sure thing. Of the 28K scientists petitioned in 1990 only 7K signed their names to the proposition that the world is undergoing a global warming. There is a copious body of evidence that a global cooling may well be more the condition. While living in Florida during the late 80's I was a first hand witness to an "assending" frost line that wipped out a huge portion of the orange groves as earlier, longer and stronger frosts, year after year, moved further and further down state to the point it eventually eradicated hundreds of thousands of acres of orange production that has not returned to this date. As a result (ironically) Coke (who owns Minute Maid) shut down their orchards and planted vinyards. I think it would be wise for the general public to explore other facts and figures concerning global warming before "signing on" to a mass concept with little more then circumstantial evidence.

Hi, Bob.

There's a hug difference between 1990 and 2004 -- the Preisdent's hand-picked commission on the topic (hand-picked to have more skeptics on the topic than in the climatological community as a whole) was >90% in agreement that global warming is real and primarily due to human activity, in agreement with similar reports by commissions of the UN and the EU. We're the only country on the planet with an ostrich-like attitude about global warming!

Yeah, the difference is Dave that what HAS happened over the intervening decades has NOT mirrored the predictions of the models. Honest scientists cannot ignore this any longer and are jumping that sinking ship to preserve their professional integrity.

Here is a NewsWeek article that conveys a completely different set of figures that remain unchallanged. Global cooling is certainly no joyful prospect any more then global warming. If anything global warming would be esier to deal with then declining growing seasons on a planted that is already begingin to feel the effects of declining crop production. See the following link for a eye opening set of undisputed figures.
