30 years of Warming goes Poof

An article discussing why the Earth is cooling against all hype that it is warming.  Some quotes:

  • the number of climate change skeptics is growing rapidly. Because a funny thing is happening to global temperatures -- they're going down, not up
  • worldwide manmade CO2 emission each year "equals about 0.0168% of the atmosphere's CO2 concentration ... This results in a 0.00064% increase in the absorption of the sun's radiation. This is an insignificantly small number.
  • while manmade emissions may be having a slight impact, "variations in global temperatures since 1978 ... cannot be attributed to carbon dioxide."

And then, of course, there is the graph at the top, showing that we have cooled all the way back to 1978.
