And, Barbara Kay asks some big questions..

I'd pick Michael Crichton over David Suzuki anyday....
- Why was climatologist James Hansen -- the father of global warming--off by 200% in his prediction that temperatures would increase by 0.35 degrees Celsius by 2008 (the actual increase has been .11 degrees); and why did he (and colleagues) say in 2001 that "the longterm prediction of future climate states is not possible"?

- Of the world's 160,000 glaciers, some are shrinking. But many --in Iceland, for example --have "surged" in the last few years, while most of Antarctica is getting colder; if warming is "global," why?

- Why haven't sea levels risen to the extent predicted? Why have the waters off the Maldive Islands in the Indian Ocean not only experienced no rise over several centuries, but an actual fall in the last 20 years?

- Where is the predicted "extreme weather?" There has been no global increase, and in many cases a decrease, of extreme weather patterns.

- From 1940-70, carbon dioxide levels went way up, but temperatures went down so abruptly that a new Ice Age was the prevailing fear; wherefore this disparity?

- The Sahara Desert is shrinking--purportedly due to the greening effects caused by man-made global warming; but isn't the greening of the desert a good thing? I know to ask these questions only because I've read State of Fear. And as the environmental hysteria burgeons, I continue to press the book on everyone I know. Forget the silly (but riveting) plot, which is to the embedded environmental science in the novel as blini to caviar. You cannot read State of Fear with an open mind and continue to believe global warming is a "totally settled issue."

If the Sahara Desert were expanding, that would also be blamed on man-made global warming.

This climate change denier has no real credibility.

Climate change is a fact, and its challenges must be addressed as quickly as possible.

Climate has always changed, it's kinda like the weather - it changes. Deal with it.

Or use the changes to gain power over people in the same way that ancient Egyptian priests/astronomers used solar eclipses - at least it's good to see some things never go out of fashion.

What are your grounds for saying this? Is it simply because Michael Crichton's stance on the issue of global warming is totally at odds with yours? If so, you are arguing in a circle, assuming that which you are trying to show.

To me, as a Liberal Party of Canada supporter, denying is the same as denying that the death camps were operated by the Nazis in Eastern Europe!!!
