"....we currently live in one of coldest moments in the history of the Earth. With the exception of the Permian Ice Age of 400 million years ago, and our own Ice Age currently 2 million years old, the Earth has always been warmer than now. Life evolved when it was warmer. Life florished when it was warmer. Life diminishes during Ice Ages." (quote from http://westinstenv.org/sosf/2008/01/24/mr-mensa-challenges-mike-on-global-cooling/)
Doesn't the above make you wonder about why global warming is being pushed so hard? As always, the answer to what's going on might well be found by following the money. Who gains from global warming scare tactics?
