Interesting! No mention in this article as to what Mr. Frankel "thinks" is the cause of increased temperatures. Is he automatically "assuming" that it is caused by increased concentrations of CO2 gas in the atmosphere and that it was human-caused? Well if he does then he may very well be wrong in his assumption because that hypothesis has not been proven. Here is why:

The real question regarding proof to the hypothesis of Anthropometric Global Warming (AGW) is "HOW SENSITIVE is the earth's atmosphere to these increased CO2 forcings?" Compounding the answer to this question, there are also many other atmospheric forcings that can cause increases in average global temperatures. But it is difficult to isolate and measure the overall sensitivity of each forcing along with their respective interrelationships.

The answer to this question is still under investigation by the REAL climate scientists. But until they have that answer, the hypothesis that AGW is the main cause of rising average temperatures on earth, it will remain just that – a hypothesis and not yet a proven scientific fact.

Chicken Little continues to cluck wildly that the sky is falling. The truth is that the earth has been warming and cooling cyclically since it formed, and it's going to continue to do so whether we humans like it or not.

The latest "climate change" study out of Britain showed no World temp. change in the last 16 years. Believe who you want.

...the world is FLAT!
...leeches suck poison out of the body.
...DDT is perfectly harmless.
...and cigarettes don't cause cancer.

Right conservatives?

Do yourselves a favor --
Turn off your AM radios and go to COLLEGE.

Even BYU teaches GW as a fact.

The world isn't flat. Is more of a spheroid. Leeches can suck poison out of the body if there is poison in the body that they are sucking from. DDT is harmless unless it comes into contact with life. Consuming cigarettes via smoking, second hand smoke, third hand smoke can cause cancer. So can sun tanning, going to a tanning salon etc.

Do yourself a favor. Be more open minded and listen to other people and opinions. You might learn something. Even byu teaches to go to different sources.

byu is an institution of learning. Meaning they can be wrong. Scientists have been wrong on many things in the past. Why study a topic if we already know it? There is always something else to learn.

I have been told for decades that temps are rising and in 2 years we are all going to die. Barack used it when he ran the first time. He said we have only a few years and then it's too late. Well you never heard another peep from him. But he and Al got rich from it.

You can give up your car if you believe in it.
