What is Warming the Globe? A lot of hot air...

The ocean?

The United States' leading hurricane forecaster says that global ocean currents, not human-produced carbon dioxide, are responsible for global warming, and the earth may begin to cool on its own in five to 10 years.

The sun?

There is some news making the rounds that Earth is not the only planet experiencing global warming. Mars, for example, possibly appears to be getting a bit warmer, as are Jupiter, Neptune’s moon Triton, and even Pluto.

Could this mean that global warming is caused by the Sun and not man’s pollution?

As Hot Air noted the words of a Hurricane forecaster: It’s “crazy” to blame global warming on humans:

Gray, speaking to a group of Republican state lawmakers, had harsh words for researchers and politicians who say man-made greenhouse gases are responsible for global warming.

“They’re blaming it all on humans, which is crazy,” he said. “We’re not the cause of it.”

In a separate post, Hot Air also detailed Al Gore's apostasy... his attack on the professor who first opened his eyes to Global Warming. It seemed the professor had second thoughts about the causes of global warming, and suggested we not jump to conclusions for at least "10 or 20 years."

And finally, MediaMatters has launched its Global Warming: Misinformation Action Center, a great place to find resources, links and information that will scarcely be found among mainstream media outlets.

Nick you are either an idiot or have major stocks in companies with high carbon footprints. Just reading your completely Neoconservative biased piece demonstrates how people like you are really retarded when it comes to pure science. Go take a science course in High School adult education then post a mature article on Global Warming. Believe me human initiated greenhouse effect (Global Warming) is quite real. What will you say when US coastal cities are flooded, killer storms rage, and some winter is the worst EVER recorded for low-temps? "Oh it's just like Mars!" You're a gabon!
