DH813 - and astronomers have found that planets Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are cooling - as the earth has been doing for the past 15 years. Coincidence? Of course - it is convenient to ignore the fact that the Globaloney Warming fear-mongers fail to recognize that none of the computer models can explain the massive global warming that was the Medieval Warm period (when Vikings established an agrarian community on Greenland...)...or explain the mini-Ice Age that followed (and had massive crop failures in northern Europe - because the growing season was so short.) But then again - why would you want to be confused with facts!!!
