Some time back, Al Gore (the inventor of the Internet and former V.P) said we don't have long as a society because Global Warming is going to cause us to burn up.......Now we read that we are headed for an Ice Age....so which is it? Are we going to burn or freeze? Scientists (and I use that term loosely) need to make up their minds.
My guess is that the real answer is neither, or rather, somewhere in the middle. But, I suppose whatever happens...average Americans are going to continue to be duped by politicians who have an agenda and have an "investment" in lots of studies and research!
