". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

New Global Warming Site

A friend of mine recently unveiled a new blog devoted to tracking and exposing misinformation and media bias on the topic of global warming. If you find this topic to be of interest, you will definitely want to visit the Global Warming Follies. Here is a description of this site from the author of the blog:

"The Global Warming Follies has two main purposes. It tracks, in the 'Follies' section, the wacky world of the 'Climate Change' true believers as they explain, in so many humorous ways, their views of global warming’s causes, effects and cures. . . . On the other hand, we are not here to say that global warming is not happening. We don’t know if it is or not. The Earth’s temperature apparently did increase somewhat in recent decades . . . but we don’t know that anything Man did caused it. And, no matter what you hear reported everywhere, no one else does either since scientific theories and computer model projections do not constitute proof. In fact, since temperatures haven’t risen at all in nearly a decade it appears that any rising may have already stopped. . . . In any event, we believe that there are problems with the unquestioning way that theories, computer model projections and potentially inaccurate temperature readings are cited by the media as proof positive in man-made global warming. We also find it interesting that, while the media seems to question everything else, they are remarkably incurious on this topic. So, in order to bring some balance to the debate, we also publish in the 'Common Sense' section articles that will hopefully cause you to think a little bit before you accept everything you’re told by the media on the subject of global warming."

I will keep a link to the Global Warming Follies in my sidebar. If you have the time and inclination, check it out!
