That link is to a press-release from the "Climate Science Coalition", which is group of global warming skeptics who gave themselves a fancy title.
They have strong links to NZ's right-wing ACT party and get anonymous funding believed to come from big industry.
Everything they say is utterly predictable and almost a cliche.
They are treated as something of a joke in circles who know what the heck they are talking about. But the media like them since they create controversy. Unfortunately now they've turned to the law to make judgments on the research of scientists.

Rant over.
:soap:
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

Dunedin has had the craziest summer weather these past couple of years, and I fully intend to blame it on Global Warming, failing that I'll blame it on Peter Chin, and if as expected he doesn't want to accept responsibility then he's more than welcome to pass the buck to the National Government.

Hmmm, how can "global warming" decrease in one part of the globe? Is that like being world famous in Poland?

Burden of proof is on you, Virgo.
I'm always surprised by the ways seemingly sensible people make such a personal fuss denying what is so obviously factually true.
The world is warming. This is a proven scientific fact. The only question is whether we will pull our collective heads out of the sand and do something about it.

Virgo,
You are playing Devil's advocate, although you may not know it.
Not sure if global warming is a fact? Ok, but ignorance cannot be excused behind a banner of "Fair and Balanced".
You've been watching too much FOX news. Doing so hurts the brain.

Please delete.

I don't care about the points in the article that much. And I don't care to argue here.

Mark Levin? You must be kidding me. Ex-Reganite ultra conservative radio guy? Jeesh.
Since when have those guys ever been right about anything?
