Global warming

All of the scary forecasts of the global warming alarmists having been debunked by the data, they have now resorted to a new more robust strategy that is immune to real data because it relies wholly on hypothetical data (A long dry summer, Bangkok Post, April 8, 2008, Global warming stings, Bangkok Post, April 12, 2008, Carbon footpring enters everyday vocabulary, Bangkok Post, April 13, 2008). They say in effect that regardless of the fact that none of our extreme weather predictions have come true and regardless of the fact that 2007 was not the hottest year on record, and regardless of the fact that the earth now appears to be cooling and not warming, please consider for a moment the devastating tragedy that could befall us if the earth did warm by an extreme amount that we cannot support by the actual but boring data. What one can read between the lines in these articles is that the global warming issue is dead in the water and that these articles are the death throes of the superheroes who had once enlisted themselves to save the earth from carbon dioxide.
