Actually the Polar bear population is increasing in some areas. And I would like to see proof that Bush is invested in Carbon Credits.

here's link to your article that works
http://goo.gl/G3IpV

first of all a climate contrarian (read denier) blogger reported this to FOX NEWZ
second, it picks up on a fact regarding the sun that most scientists discount as not being significant

"Climate change activists though say this is just a “trick” put forth by “climate contrarians.”

“I see climate contrarians try this trick almost every time a big new solar study comes out. They somehow tend to neglect mentioning that solar variation is smaller than the heat-trapping power of carbon dioxide,” Aaron Huertas of the Union of Concerned Scientists told FoxNews.com ."

contrarians, foxnewz, the blaze.... one and all, endlessly ferret out little details and blow them up an exposé somehow buried and hidden to mask their real agendas.

anyway, if it helps your conscience ....

No, and I beg to differ on the amount of evidence that smoking is bad for you versus man made climate change.
nobody is arguing about man made climate change.

Some skeptical climatologists say that the statement in the U.N. draft report is important, but not game-changing.
“The solar component is real but not of sufficient magnitude to have driven most of the warming of the late 20th century,” Pat
Michaels, the former president of the American Association of State Climatologists, and current director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute, told FoxNews.com .
Climate change activists though say this is just a “trick” put forth by “climate contrarians.”

“I see climate contrarians try this trick almost every time a big new solar study comes out. They somehow tend to neglect mentioning that solar variation is smaller than the heat-trapping power of carbon dioxide,” Aaron Huertas of the Union of Concerned Scientists told FoxNews.com .

“The basic evidence is that solar activity has varied a bit while global temperature keeps going up,” he added.

Meanwhile, Rawls argues that solar activity remains at a historically high level, enough to continue warming the earth without an increase in activity."

The director of "the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute?"

Dude... Even this article under scores the significantly of it's own title....talk about a misleading title.

The climate issue could be construed as an egocentric topic, like, how long have we been around? a blink of the eye? And when was the last mini ice age? recent enough to be found in the history books. So who has the last say on credibility on this issue, no one really, but it is true we are doing everything we can to soil the home we live on.
