The cynics are more in line with good scientific thought and absolutely the opposite of the sophists. Now if you want me to discuss how sophism has polluted today's science I would be happy to do so. Sigh. I need a drink, the sun is hot today.

Some more on sea levels

No worries, unless you are concerned by bridge clearances.

This was from a report posted by AFP written based on a just released report by NASA.

Re: Do we need to be preparing for Arctic cruising strategies because of Global Cooli

Warning. Warning. We are all going to burn under the sun. Global warming is going to cause draughts and famine around the world. The ice caps are going to melt causing sea levels to rise which in turn will flood most of Miami and Caribbean and Pacific Islands will disapear.

The world as we know it is going to die because of global warming. And it's settled science because the President of the USA and John Kerry said so.

Well please can anyone explain how areas in Colorado are having the heaviest snow falls in 50 years?

Can anyone explain that for the first time in modern history snow is falling in the Caribbean?

‘Never before seen’ spring snowfall in the Caribbean islands – & Colorado Ski Resort snowiest in 50 years – Snow chaos in Germany | Climate Depot


Forget about global warming. Like I said in my original post are we going to have to adapt to arctic or antarctic type cruising because of GLOBAL COOLING?????

The heavy Colorado snow falls were forecast and linked to El Nino 9 months ago.
