Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

some inconvenient truths...

Here are a few bits of information from Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth":

Taking the average temperature in the Northern Hemisphere for the period 1961-1990 as the datum line, the current temperature is about .7 deg above. By comparison, the last "cyclical" warm period, frequently referred to as the Medieval Warm Period, was only about .1 deg above the datum line. p. 63-65.

Current CO2 levels are about 30% higher than at any time in the last 200,000 years. The correlating temperature increase from this is giving us the hottest period on the planet in 600,000. p. 66.

The global tempemperature has been steadily rising since 1866. Of the 21 hottest years during this period, 20 have occurred in the last 25 years. p.73.

In the period 1950-2000, the number of major flood events per decade has been increasing dramatically each decade. The nineties saw five times the number in the fifties. p.106.

The rate of species loss has gone seriously exponential, in almost exact correlation to the global population explosion. p.163 p.216.

In the US, the number of major wildfires in the last five decades was:
Fifties: 2
Sixties: 2
Seventies: 4
Eighties: 10
Nineties: 46 !!! p.229.

Draw your own conclusions...
