common sense is an oxymoron: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: LouDobbsAwaaaay: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: When did you get your degree in Global Warming science?

It's called 'climatology'. Do you go to the dentist and demand to see a tooth-doctor?

Well.... except for the inconvenient fact that not 100% of all climatologists agree that global warming even exists. I was making the distinction between those climatologists and the GW religious fanatics.

Three percent of climatologists are GW religious fanatics (whatever the fark they are)?

I used the term "religious fanatics" because the most vocal GW Believers have a religious intensity to their beliefs and - like Xian/Islamic fundies - quickly resort to personal attack and demonization of those that refuse to march in lockstep with their pronouncements.

FTMFA: The scientists have calculated that the potential is there for Swedish peatlands to triple in extent, enormously increasing their carbon sink effect. By extrapolating to include the rest of the world's high-latitude temperate areas - the parts of the globe where peatland can expand as it does in Sweden - they project the creation of an extremely powerful carbon sink.

The CO2-sink effect of peatlands is real, but it's not restricted to those in high latitudes, and peatlands worldwide are on the decline as they are harvested for fuel and drained for development.


Nevertheless, this argument will soon "go green."

That would be pretty peculiar, considering that glacial periods have been occurring on a 100,000 year cycle for some time now and the last one ended what, 13,000 years ago? I think somebody misplaced a decimal point somewhere along the line.
