    Oh my goodness, fish 8, these are scientists. They know what they are doing. They are not radio talk hosts trying to make a political or ideological point. They are looking at data and analyzing it. If you were a mechanic, would you want me going into your shop telling you how much more I know than you about changing the oil? Give these people who have studied for years and years and years some credit for knowing a little more than you do about it.

    So, BYU - the Lord's University - is in on the Left-wing Conspiracy too?

    One more testament to the fact that we need to take the possibility that at least part of climate change is due to human activity.

    But if we all refuse to look at that possibility and thus stick our heads firmly in the sand, perhaps we shouldn't be too surprised when our exposed tail feathers suddenly catch fire.

    By then it will be too late.

    As far as climate change, it seems it would be better to study how to adapt to climate change. The climate will always change and replacing your lightbulbs and buying a hybrid car won't affect the climate a bit. Global warming made Al Gore a billionaire and is a great ruse for governments to raise taxes and redistribute wealth around the world (that's why the main proponents are politicians, environmentalist and scientist who get grant money researching global warming), but what no one tells you is that none of these solutions will drop global temperatures. And while some people might suffer if the earth heats up, other places would benefit. A warmer earth with lots of carbon dioxide would lead to increased vegetation. So the fools errand of cooling the earth is essentially robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    Interesting that one of the articles that you link to is titled "Himalayan Glaciers are Growing". Sure looks like alot of these scientistic studies really don't know what is going on. In science you have to be very careful of those who make a decision and then go out and collect date to prove it, instead of collecting data and then trying to interpret the data. It's easy to look at a small sample and jump to incorrect decisions. (In my fridge my jello is red - thus all jello is red.)
