    It's global cooling! Burning fossil fuels are causing heat from the sun to be reflected back into space. We need more regulations.

    what a shock, when you actually go read the study and the Reuters report referenced it paints a far less rosy picture then the "DN compiler" would have you think.

    Very simple explanation. The Himalays are a long distance from he "hot air" coming out of Washinton and therefore is not affected.

    "The Himalayas hold the planet's largest body of ice outside the polar caps"


    Hmmm. I'd always read that the largest land-supported body of ice outside Antarctica was atop Greenland.

    Could this little snippet of data also be wrong?

    It's time to switch back to the ice age scare.

    Scientists don't realize the earth is a living thing that has cycles to and during it's life. They observe one thing for a few years, in a couple areas, and suddenly Chicken Little was right---the sky is falling. At least they've progressed beyond believing the earth is flat.....

    Maybe it time for the president and the extremist listen to the scientist who have for many years now called global warming being caused by man and crude oil use a hoax.

    The earth is in normal phase of change and unpredictable processes that are concurrent with normal in science. Most likely a precursor to an ice age than turning into a desert. The earth for its millions of years as always been actively redistributing is resources to meet its own demands and there is no such thing as being predictable or stable. We can't even get daily weather reports right which says a lot about the science of fear and accusation as a reliable source of information.

    The only place there is manmade global warming is in the heads of liberals!
