The selling out of America The Euro-lefties still think they are going to get us to sign on to Kyoto, as it says here "whether we want to or not." They need to find a dictionary of American slang and look up "fat chance."

As far as the Kyoto Club is concerned, human-caused global warming is an absolute fact--regardless of a preponderance of scientific evidence to the contrary. Their battle cry is to prevent the world’s temperature from rising two degrees (C) above pre-industrial levels, which they contend will be catastrophic. They completely ignore the fact that a thousand years ago, the global temperature was at least two degrees (C) above current levels, during a period that science refers to as the "Medieval Climate Optimum." Greenland was actually green during this period.

Then the world entered a period known in science as the "Little Ice Age," which reached its depths between 1560 and 1850. Since then, global temperatures have risen steadily, until the mid-1900s, when the temperature leveled, and began to decline slightly.

This scientific record is undisputed, though some global warming advocates have tried to obscure the record. The Kyoto Club simply ignores the record, and relies instead on computer models which can only predict from the data they are fed. When the same computer models are fed the known data from the last century, they fail to accurately project the known climate pattern. Why they should be relied upon to predict future patterns from projected data is a question that has yet to be answered.
