This same Welsh "expert" is probably over in the dead bird thread blaming it on UFO's and the rapture.

I posted something similar, but this one has much more detail.
Good find!

It proves just how easy it is to forget to check history before jumping to unfounded conclusions.

From that list, it would appear there was more flooding in the 19th century than there has been in recent times.
Maybe AGW came early to that part of the world.-ֿ

I don't care what the scientists 'believe', belief is for Sunday morning, I care about what they know.

Show me the science that provides evidence that man's CO2 emissions from the burning of fossil fuels can change the climate.

If there was science to support man made global warming, consensus would not be needed.

Less than 1% of "greenhouse gas emissions" are man-made. 99% of "greenhouse gas emissions" occur naturally, CO2 released into the atmosphere by the planet's oceans.

Human GHG emissions are a lot less than 1% of the total amount, but alarmist scientists keep telling us that we're upsetting the, "natural balance" and that modern man is behaving like an extra terrestrial invader, which may or may not be true.
If there's any way for the ever increasing, ever evolving human population to decrease its emissions and get them back to 1900 levels, it hasn't been discovered yet.
The magic fix has yet to be found.

There was a group of environmental academics in Alberta, Canada, who led a campaign against cows (the province is the major beef cattle center in Canada). They claimed the cows farted almost constantly and that all that gas was destroying the atmosphere. An independant study proved it wasn't the cows who were full of toxic gas, rather it was academic doomsdayers.

I just recieved a message, that the reason there are birds falling out of the sky is because of methane clouds floating around the planet,which could be caused by eathquakes and volcano's emmitting the stuff so I ask you ,is is possible for methane to have anything to do with climate ?
I am also wondering how a jet engine works in methane,as in would they lose altitude ?
