This Just In - The Sun Warms The Earth

Maybe the science isn't settled after all. A team of climate scientist has determined that the sun, not man, is the "culprit" behind global warming.

"Our findings basically are that fingerprints - that is to say the pattern of warming - that's predicted by greenhouse models does not match the fingerprints of observations, so there is a disconnect between greenhouse models and the actual reality of observations," Singer told Cybercast News Service.

"This means that the greenhouse effect - while real - is not very important in producing climate change," he said. "It's a lot smaller than what the models calculate."

Singer said the reason why the models "overestimate the effectiveness of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is that the models ignore what are called negative feedbacks which occur in the atmosphere, such as clouds, which reduce the effect of the greenhouse gases."

"Their models just don't consider them properly," he said.

Guess what? The Sun is expanding too! In about a billion years, it will become a Red Giant and devour the Earth.
Unfortunately for PARD, you cannot take the Sun to court to stop the expansion, aka "Solar Sprawl" and nuclear fusion takes precedence over the supreme court.

I knew that global warming was being fueled by a lot of hot air in the U.N., and it's only logical that a big ball of burning hydrogen should be to blame as well.
