RE: Himalayan glaciers maintaining size over past decade.
While I think you both may have valid points, I would like to point out that fox, msnbc, cnn, abc, whatever, are not valid places to base any science argument on. None of them are a "fine" place for any concrete information, as science reporters are often too inept or too simplistic to present information accurately. Either that or they imply that you can draw conclusions that were never actually drawn in the research.

Where can you get accurate info about a new piece of research? Read the actual research, that's it. Until you have actually read the original source you don't have any business making any proclamations about it.

I meant 'fine' as in balanced. Neither of these sites share the same partisanship that their television counterparts have. I read plenty of published scientific artilces.

I never claimed it was the nail in the coffin. Just one more data point of a million discrediting global warming. I'd post others but something tells me that you believe global warming and it wouldn't matter anyway.

RE: Himalayan glaciers maintaining size over past decade.
I agree with Micheal Shermer. There's enough of a reason to see it as true that we should act like it is. Not the whole liberal global warming agenda thing that is happening but yes weather is changing and maybe we're part of it. And yes we should try a bit harder to not be. True or not it isn't wrong for humans to be a bit less destructive.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

Well, I'm neutral with this global warming issue, but in my opinion we should really do something about the environment. More trees, less pollution.

RE: Himalayan glaciers maintaining size over past decade.
There soloution is to profit from the problem (carbon capping/trading)

So the top 500+ biggest polluters can buy there limits and if they have too many left over.....then they can sell them to the highest bidder (seeing as they will be limited)

I wonder what they have planned for all the money it will generate?

I also wonder why they keep skirting the fact that all planets in this solar system have steadily been increasing temp (i sound like a broken record)

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

Yah its just one big scam, like the entire credit industry in the US. Ohh, no wait that is the credit card industry.

Actually I am failing to understand this scam conspiracy with carbon trading... Maybe you can give us some more info on how this big score works. Ohh and while your at it, even assuming this is true, go ahead and explain how this is a bad thing.
