Some big league hitters in that list, not everyone can be bought off by instant fame and gov. grants.

OK, it's official now;
The BBC reports that The lull in global warming from 1998 to 2008 was mainly caused by a sharp rise in China’s coal use, a study suggests.

The absence of a temperature rise over that decade is often used by “climate sceptics” as grounds for denying the existence of man-made global warming.

But the new study, in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, concludes that smog from the extra coal acted to mask greenhouse warming.


So to recap,
1- the burning of coal is the primary cause of global cooling by emitting CO2
2- the burning of coal is the primary cause of global warming by emitting CO2

I'm glad all the controversy over global warming/climate change has now been settled, it's all OK now, what a relief!

The lull, or LOL???

There is money to be made in the "sky is falling" industry. I think we should be doing the right things to protect the environment, but I realize that there is a business end to this whole deal...
