Opposed To Global Warming

A recent post by Ms. Elenaeous seemed to embrace global warming. If fact she wanted to "take out those aerosol hairspray and deodorant cans and let's all spray away!"

Consider this. Most times the MSM will say something like the vast majority of scientist believe that global warming is real. However, no one ever mentions The Petition Project. This is where more than 17,100 basic and applied American scientists, two-thirds with advanced degrees, have signed a petition stating

There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.

These are not just some crackpots, instead ther are 2,660 physicists, geophysicists, climatologists, meteorologists, oceanographers, and environmental scientists. This is a real brain trust. So do not believe that only whackos still do not believe. A bunch of smart people still are not convinced.

Besides, what if global warming is real? There could be some benefits, such as:

1. Make land in the US and Canadian plains suitable for farming
2. Melting glaciers could increase the availability of fresh water and improve the water table
3. Longer growing seasons
4. More land availble for development.

Lastly, projections are that the average earth temperture will rise a few degree F. Therefore, how will it make such a drastic change if Antartica (store place for 90% of the world's ice) goes from an average temperature of -60 F to -58 F?

Alarmist should think things through and not be satisfied with the easy, and often incorrect, explanation.

Al, I guess my sarcasm didn't come through...Just to be clear, I'm actually not in the global warming caused by man camp.
