    Just seems that since we started to get regular snow etc. that all of the hype about global warming has died a death.

    Money making shambles or is the world really dying?

    Yes m8 it is. The whole thing is a way of controlling people. UTTER RUBBISH!!!

    Look at what Volcanos put out and what the rays from the Sun are doing to the atmoshpere, then there is the flipping of the magnetic poles - which to me is the biggest contributing factor as it will neutralise the 'ozone' layer's effect of reducing radiation from the Sun.

    There was a big hue and cry that was covered up the other year at the CRU in Norwich Uni:
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/environmen...-leaked-emails

    Apparently there is are two big screw-ups in the climatologists insistence that "global warming" is a man-made phenomenom... One being that for the last ten years the temperature has been dropping, and there is also the hockey stick, which is a graph which shows that global warming also took place in the thirteenth (?) century and made it to higher temperatures than we have now, but minus all the industry which is allegedly to blame for global warming in the first place.

    Follow the money. A lot of people are making a shed-load of cash from telling us that we are leaving too many lights on.

    Global warming is not at all new, and is part of this planet's nature to undergo cyclical climate change.

    It has been hyped up out of all proportion for political ends. The plain truth is that NO-ONE knows exactly what is happening or has proved conclusively that it is as serious as politicians and those with vested interests would have us believe.

    That fact that recent 'findings' have been discredited says it all.

    And of course motorists are the biggest contributors.......scapegoats more like.

    Does anyone not remember the documentary that was on TV 4 years ago regarding global warming? Iirc it was bascially saying we are heading for another Ice Age. But then how many doomsday's have we had in the last 25 years?

    just because we have some cold wind from the NE scandanavia now and again in winter doesn't prove that global warming isn't happening. most of the science shows that global warming is irrefutable, such as the massive artic melt since the '80s. i've heard all the arguments that try to disprove GW, but it's real i'm afraid.

    Yeah it's real m8 but the argument is 'Who or what is causing it?', and that is Man Vs Nature ie what the pole is about.

    Exactly. We know it's happening, it's just the question of what is causing it. The natural planet, or humans.

    indeed. there are some claims (with scientific weight) that other planets in the solar system are warming too. could be just down to the sun, and there's nothing we can do about that.

    Well the other side is we are entering another ice age. Then again as I say how many 'Doomsdays' have we had in the last 25 years?
