Similarly when you compare predicted temperatures compared to what has happened they haven't held. I'm not saying global warming is rot (though I strongly lean towards the skeptical side) I'm just saying its a damn site more complicated then most hippies and environmental zealots make out.

Perhaps the climate is changing; good, I'd be quite worried if a natural process which has been happening for 14 billion years suddenly stopped.
If it was really preventable, we wouldn't be p1ssing around trying to control carbon dioxide emissions when any chemist with an IR spectrometer (common at universities these days) could tell you that water vapour is hundreds of times more energy-absorbant. But breathing can't be taxed, and the government would look very stupid if the hydrogen fuel cells it has ploughed a fortune into are found to be just as bad for the climate. Instead we'd do something useful.
Maybe the recession will encourage the government to ditch the scientific yes-men and focus on something more important...
