To the left all I saw was blue water and siberia.

If you are referring to the large lump of white to the right, that's Greenland - Two things about Greenland - (1) it doesn't count as part of the arctic ice cap and (2) being an island it doesn't melt.

There is a big difference between the North pole and the South pole. Antarctica is a land mass (continent) covered in ice -- the Artic is not.

Also, a common misconception is that the Earth will be warmer EVERYWHERE as a result of global warming. You can't cite more ice in Antarctica as evidence against global warming. Much of the Earth's climate is influenced heavily by the ocean currents, and the absence of the ice caps will most likely affect the currents drastically. This effect could be a much colder planet, or much warmer. I don't think anyone is certain about it, yet.

The jury is still out on that one.

First, the author repeatedly states that humans are not the cause of global climate change, yet it NEVER gives any evidence -- not even once. If you can find some evidence there, please correct me.

Second, he asserts that Michael Crichton is a scientist and he cites one of his recent works: "State of Fear". While Michael Crichton does have degrees in anthropology and medicine, that would hardly qualify him as an acceptable source on climate change. Also, the book "State of Fear" is a fiction -- how can anyone possibly cite a work of fiction to support an argument, and expect to be taken seriously?

Third:
Quote:
In another instance, I was accused by Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki of being paid by oil companies. That is a lie. Apparently he thinks if the fossil fuel companies pay you have an agenda. So if Greenpeace, Sierra Club or governments pay there is no agenda and only truth and enlightenment?
Judging by this statement, the author is receiving funds from "fossil fuel companies". Yet, rather than apply a sound defense to the accusation, he resorts to the "red herring" fallacy. Everyone has an agenda -- especially if you are receiving funds from a large interest group.

Re: Not All Scientist Believe In Global Warming

i think you summed it up best by saying everyone has an agenda. we are pretty foolish to think that all this crap we are putting into the environment has little or no effect on it

I agree!
However, if we don't a handle on world population, nothing else really matters. It all springs from to damn many people for the planet to support. I will have to stop here or launch into an 8-day tirade of the ills of the planet

The End is Near - Repent Now.

Oh wait, they've been saying that for a few thousand years.
