Climatic hubris: The Ellesmere Island ice shelves have been disappearing since they were first mapped in 1906

Yay! More newspapers are publishing the truth from scientists with historical evidence about the global warming hysteria not conjecture and computer models.

We need to put our energies and resources into solving real environmental
problems -- air, water and land pollution, the loss in biodiversity, and urban
sprawl, to name just a few. "Stabilizing the Earth's climate" as suggested by
Suzuki's science director, is sheer fantasy. Its time to chill out on climate
change hysteria.

I get the feeling more and more scientists are finally stepping up to plate, so I'm probably going to say less about it, especially since it snowed in Los Angeles and was -18C in Kansas (where I am right now).

Some may ask whether I believe that climate change is a problem. Well, do I believe the climate is effected by human activity? No. But I do know the climate has changed a lot on this planet ever since we had an atmosphere and will continue to do so. I don't think Mother Nature cares whether the climate isn't ideal for all the humans in Toronto.

What's truly alarming about the envirocommies is that they complain about the SUVs and big oil companies, but I never hear them talk about the big non-Kyoto signing communist China, the big heat/pollution island of Mexico City, or, I don't know, the fact that the population of the planet has doubled since about 1960.

These Suzuki socialists love to blame the rich, would love to introduce carbon taxes and pull another NEP on Alberta, damage the economy again, and horde natural resource revenues from the provinces.

Okay, that's enough ranting for the time being. It's just so frustrating.

I've said it before, I accept that our climate is changing, but I don't accept the guilt trip that we are responsible for the entire thing. The grounds for those accusations are built on shaky suppositions.

If the lefties weren't so busy pointing fingers, it would be easier to achieve consensus towards dealing with the real consequences as we head into the future.
