Praying for Global Warming?

Check out this excellent piece by John Tomlinson on something that you won't read Big Media.

In it, Tomlinson reports on a U.N. Global Warming conference held in Poland last month.  That conference didn't get much press coverage because at it "650 of the world's top climatologists stood up and said man-made global warming is a media generated myth without basis."  

This news doesn't fit the "mainstream" template because it is a conclusion based on facts not feelings.  Facts like . . . 

"The earth's temperature peaked in 1998" and has "been falling ever since."

"Arctic ice is back to 1979 levels" and Antarctic ice "is up 5 percent since 1980."

and "core samples [from Antarctica] show conclusively [that increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide] follow the earth's temperature rise, not lead it."

Yet the liberals are still out there fear-mongering and insisting that we act now to stop carbon emissions and global warming.

But Tomlin writes that there is now "overwhelming evidence that the earth is on the verge of another Ice Age" and suggests we should be praying for global warming instead of combating it.

I'm not sure that I agree with that conclusion but I certainly don't understand spending billions or trillions of dollars and wrecking what's left of our economy to foil a myth like man-made global warming.
