I'd like to see the records/recordings of the ice mass of about 2,000,000 years ago just to confirm that this is an "all" time record.

We need the article ice to melt. It's getting hotter. It's time to use up some of the I e cubes from the fridge once in awhile to cool things down.

"All time" means "Since 1979" according to the story. Yeah, that's some track record to fret about.

Wouldn't that be normal with the peak in solar flares. We are in that cycle where one big burst could knock out our cell phones, internet, etc..

That's what people don't understand...it's the solar flares that is heating our climate more.

There is no conclusive proof that the sky is falling, however, completely ignoring what is happening is not a wise thing either. While I do not favor immediate draconian efforts to reduce the apparent global warming, I do feel that a sensible attempt to at least limit some of the alleged greenhouse gasses might not be a bad idea and give us the added benefit of breathing cleaner air. And yes. I am aware of the theory that this simply might be part of a natural cycle, but I will say, can we afford to take chances by summarily dismissing the possibility of this being man made?
