Don't believe the hype. And don't believe Al Gore or the IPCC. There is no scientific consensus on global warming.

Since its founding in 1988, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has sounded the alarm on global warming. The IPCC published a widely-cited report in 2001 claiming that world temperatures were relatively stable from the year 1000 through 1900 but spiked dramatically from 1900 to 2000. H. Sterling Burnett's commentary in yesterday's Washington Times, however, points out that the science behind the temperature report is seriously flawed. According to Burnett, the IPCC scientists used statistics in their report without consulting any statisticians and, consequently, got them wrong. Furthermore, the IPCC's 2007 predictions of catastrophe resulting from global warming are based on clearly inaccurate data.
