I believe!

Well, your humble Devil rarely likes to admit to mistakes of such a massive scale as this, but I have to say that I now believe that man's activities are causing catastrophic global warming at an incredible rate. And, via Neil Craig, here's why...
Global warming on Neptune’s moon Triton as well as Jupiter and Pluto, and now Mars has some scratching their heads over what could possibly be in common with the warming of all these planets.

That's right: so extraordinarily damaging are our emissions that we are causing global warming throughout our entire solar system! Truly, we are a wonderfully destructive species!

Quite seriously though, here's an idea: maybe the warming isn't, you know... um... caused by human activity to any extent that matters or is likely to matter in a hundred years either. Maybe the sun is actually getting hotter.

But let's add in another idea. According to some reports, the Antarctic is cooling and, indeed, putting on ice. In the meantime, we are experiencing warming effects in the northern hemisphere. Now, what might that suggest?

Well, this is a very informative page about the sun and climate change. It's very much worth a read.

It's also worth playing with this little Flash animation that allows you to see what happens when you alter the orientation of the earth's axis.

Go on, have a go. And why not send the link to Batshit while you're about it...?

I would write more, but I'm so wearied by all the people with no understanding of science spouting off in ignorance that I can barely be bothered to write about it any more.

The temperature of the planet has something to do with a fusion reaction involving 10 million tons of hydrogen gas a second at 3 million degrees?

I don't believe it. It's GW Bush.

You know this won't change minds, don't you...?

No more than any future discovery of Christ's tomb (woah, there, Mr Cameron!) would cause a lack of faith among Catholics & CofE types.

It's not science, any longer. It's religion!

all we have to do now is get Cameron on the Milankovitch cycle

Really good program on Channel 4 tonight DK, The Great Global Warming Swindle. was very very informative. An eye opener and confirms much of what you and others have been saying for a while.

I'm sorry to admit I was starting to be taken in a bit by the whole global warming thing but then I started to think a little more about the whole thing when it became apparent that scientists were not able to speak out against the thing.

It has literally become a religious issue. When people start saying that it's dangerous to argue with, then you know something is badly wrong.

That "Global Warming Swindle" on Channel 4 last night really opened my eyes to what is going on and I sincerely hope a lot of people watched this, as otherwise I can see this country sleepwalking into a ludicrously high tax socialist dream-world.

Oh yeah? So what has happened for the last ten years, exactly?

Over at the ASI, they are posting some of the winning entries of the Young Writers on Liberty. One does not want to put such keen minds off,...
