First, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee scientists have published a study showing, get this Al Gore, climate change over the past 100 years is "all natural." Temperature shifts have been caused by natural synchronization of forces over global climate systems. The reasoning too theoretical and mathematical for me but the conclusion is clear . . . human beings aren't causing global warming. Rather, the earth is complex and we have no idea why it was warming and is cooling.
Second, a researcher at Florida State University has published a report showing that hurricane and cyclone activity "has completely and utterly collapsed during the past 2 to 3 years." Storm "energy levels" have dropped to where they were in the 1970s. "This should not be a surprise to scientists since the natural variability in climate dominates any detectible or perceived global warming impact." Take note all you global warming nuts.
Finally, third, some good news from the U.S. Senate . . . eight Democrats have joined 25 Republicans and indicated their opposition to White House plans to ram through a "cap and trade" bill as part of the budget process (which, by Senate rules, is a process immune to filibuster). Kudos to these 33 Senators for realizing that, in the words of their joint letter, "legislation so far-reaching should be fully vetted and given appropriate time for debate." But, here's a question . . . where were the other 31 Republicans?
