This story is a few days old from The Hindu - India’s National Newspaper: July 10, 2008, but it's worth a look.....
As western nations step up pressure on India and China to curb the emission of greenhouse gases, Russian scientists reject the very idea that carbon dioxide may be responsible for global warming.
Russian critics of the Kyoto Protocol, which calls for cuts in CO2 emissions, say that the theory underlying the pact lacks scientific basis. Under the Theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming, it is human-generated greenhouse gases, and mainly CO2, that cause climate change. “The Kyoto theorists have put the cart before the horse,” says renowned Russian geographer Andrei Kapitsa. “It is global warming that triggers higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, not the other way round.”
Russian researchers made this discovery while studying ice cores recovered from the depth of 3.5 kilometres in Antarctica. Analysis of ancient ice and air bubbles trapped inside revealed the composition of the atmosphere and air temperature going back as far as 400,000 years.

What an angle we have in this Editorial from SmallGovTimes by Lee Ellis, he has made the "Man Made Climate Change" into a detective story with a twist of conspiracy theory, come to think of it he has a point!
EDITORIAL - I am an old mystery fan. As a boy, I devoured all the old Erle Stanley Gardner and Agatha Christie mysteries and now read the newer Mary Higgins Clark novels. I guess this is the reason I still get suspicious of sudden changes in society and feel the need to investigate.
For example, I recall all the interest in Communist fronts, especially in the Joseph McCarthy era, before a combination of liquor and the Edward R. Murrow CBS show destroyed him.

With a headline like this we should think its all over, this is from Pantagraph.Com by R. John Muench.
As a scientist who has studied the global warming issue extensively, I can say with high certainty that man's influence on global climate is at best minimal. The temperature data of the recent past does not support the theory of anthropogenic global warming.

We thought you would want to see this article by The Australian, it concerns an aspect we all have when we see the "Man Made Climate Change" scare, and that is the anxiety it must have on those who in believe it, now ask yourself a question, does this article make things better or worse?
I HEAR on the scientific grapevine that CSIRO’s biggest problem when providing formal advice to the federal Government on the matter of climate change is to say nothing that can be interpreted as giving aid and comfort to the army of irresponsible sceptics out there who are doubtful about the dreadful consequences of global warming.

We seem to on a good run in the media, the Irish Independent had the following to say by Michael Dorgan.
AS MOST people are aware, there has been a steady increase in government-disseminated ads directed at combating climate change through the media.
But has anybody noticed that the term "global warming" has been completely replaced by "climate change"?
The "green" thing to do is to cut our CO2 emissions. But what effect will cutting back on our emissions have on "climate change"?
Herein lies the answer.

With so many other main stream articles saying we are all going to fry, one report has spoken up to come to the defence of common sense. The article from ISN by Simon Roughneen, has a quote from CO2 Sceptic Richard Lindzen (Alfred P Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at Massachusetts Institute of Technology), he told ISN Security Watch that predictions such as the IPCCs were based on flawed modelling:
"The text of the IPCC [as opposed to the spin-oriented summary] makes clear that a major assumption of attribution studies is that the models were used properly and adequately account for natural internal variability. This study acknowledges that they did not. Under the circumstances, it is absurd to depend on these same models to predict the end of phenomena that they could not predict in the first place."

This is from the Voice of America by Michael Bowman, the sky is falling down on chicken little in the USA, as its going to get very warm there in future decades. That's according to a report called 'Scientific Assessment of the Effects of Global Change on the United States'. It follows several other reports recently with the same theme, and that is the more CO2 we have in the atmosphere the warmer it will be!
We think it is time people made a stand on the ridiculous science of "Man Made Climate Change". So many people believe in this style of reporting from the media. The true message as to the real cause of Climate Change is not put across from the main stream media. The anxiety levels people must have as a result of the "Man Made Climate Change" scare, to say the least, is very worrying, no wonder people think site's like this are in denial.
A U.S. government scientific report concludes that future decades will see significant climate change in the United States, caused primarily by human activity.

Each time we see this sort of nonsense it get's harder not say anything. This time its an article from Reuters by Michael Szabo. It says the level of CO2 need's to be at about 350 parts per million (ppm) of CO2 and we are currently at 387 ppm CO2, going up at 2 per annum," said King, director at Oxford University's Smith School of Enterprise and Environment.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most common greenhouse gas, and atmospheric levels are sometimes measured as CO2 in parts per million. Collectively, all greenhouse gases can also be expressed as CO2 equivalent (CO2e).
King said that maintaining atmospheric CO2 levels at 450 ppm risked a 20 percent chance of global temperatures rising nearly 4 degrees Celsius.
Now if you take this information in as true, and many do, your going to feel that the sky is going to fall on you.

This news Blog has just arrived from the Pittsburgh Tribune, its very sharpe and to the point, enjoy: -
Imagine this nightmarish scenario: Twenty years hence when the Church of Global Warming has secured carbon taxes and stifling controls on industry, adherents of environmental Armageddon announce that "climate change" isn't influenced by man-made factors after all.
Sorry about that, folks. But try to have a nice day -- now that the quality of your lives has been predetermined by the whimsy of others.
Today's reality is that there are increasing reasons to doubt, and challenge, the presumed totality of man-made global warming.

Now here is a BIG news story from AllAfrica.Com about Mt Kilimanjaro keeping its snow in Africa. We are excited about this story as it is yet another nail in the coffin for Al Gore and the IPCC and not forgetting "Man Made Climate Change".
A Cabinet minister has allayed fears that ice caps on Mt Kilimanjaro that is a big tourist attraction in the region could disappear permanently.
The minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Ms Shamsa Mwangunga, says contrary to reports that the ice caps were decreasing owing to effects of global warming, indications were that the snow cover on Africa's highest mountain were now increasing.
