    This was posted in one of our national papers about two years ago, followed this year by a statement from the Climate Society which supports most of what is here.


    1. Britain is one degree Celsius cooler now than it was at the time of the Domesday book.
    2. Greenland got its name from the verdant pastures that attracted the Norse settlers under Eric the Red in 986. They carried on their normal way of life (based on cattle, grain, hay and herring) for 300 years until the Little Ice Age, when they were driven off by the encroaching ice and the Inuit took over. The ice and the Inuit are still there.
    3. Carbon dioxide is a minor greenhouse gas. In the atmosphere there is over a hundred times the concentration of water vapour, which is the dominant greenhouse gas.
    4. Without the Greenhouse Effect there would be no life on Earth.
    5. Temperature measurements by satellite, radio sonde balloons and well maintained rural surface stations in the West show no significant warming.
    6. The evidence of* significant warming comes from surface stations that are probably affected by a variety of factors that contaminate the data.
    7. Computer models of the climate are worthless, as they are based on many assumptions about interactions between climate factors that are still unknown to science. They are generally unstable and chaotic, giving a wide variety of answers depending on the input assumptions.
    8. The Kyoto agreement would have a devastating effect on the world economy but, since carbon dioxide is a minor greenhouse gas, an undetectable effect on the climate.
    9. The IPCC (the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has been the main engine for promoting the global warming scare. It has become notorious for its corrupt practices of doctoring its reports and executive summaries, after they have been approved by the participating scientists, to conform to its political objectives
    10. The really big lie about man-made global warming is that almost all scientists accept it. More than 4,000 scientists from 106 countries, including 72 Nobel prize winners, signed the Heidelberg Appeal (1992), calling for a rational scientific approach to environmental problems. Many senior scientists have also supported The Statement by Atmospheric Scientists on Greenhouse Warming (1992), The Leipzig Declaration (1997) and finally the Oregon Petition (1998) which received the signatures of over 19,000 scientists

    Now here is a little teaser. I wash the dishes after every meal, now everyone knows the water runs right handed down south of the equator, I have always had trouble getting the soap suds away, but recently the water swirls around that fast nothing is left, I'm frightened to put a finger in, in case I lose it ha ha.
    Cheers Des

    Weather Report*
    The Washington Post

    The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the*seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday*from Consulafft, at Bergen, Norway.*

    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate*conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.**
    **
    Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.*
    **
    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well*known glaciers have entirely disappeared.**

    Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old*seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.*

    I'm sorry, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922,as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post…

    …nearly 88 years ago!**

    that was Only ten years after the Titanic hit a big Berg, and 96 years later on her Anniversary, when I was over the wreck of the Titanic, the nearest Ice berg was only 25 miles away.
