Since you're obviously the slow student in the class, I'll post this again.<quoted text>And if someone told you the cause was global warming, what would you say?
Now pay attention this time.
The average global temperature has gone down, not up, in recent years. The average global temperatures dropped since at least 2002. The temperature has decreased by 0.74°F (0.39°C) since January 24, 2006.
January 2008 capped a 12 month period of global temperature drops on all of the major well respected indicators. HadCRUT, RSS, UAH, and GISS global temperature sets all show sharp drops in the last year.
