Fuck you Bolt

Who's the anti-American luddite now?
Last year was the fourth-warmest since systematic global temperature measurements began in the 19th century, NASA scientists said this past week.
On 11 Feb, Bolt had this to say:
Why is this bad news for green groups? Because it reminds us the weather today is no wilder than it was half a century ago, before global warming was said to have sent the climate haywire. Back then, a cold snap was seen as just another freak of nature, or even a sign of the next ice age.
Meanwhile, NASA, one of the most prestigious scientific bodies in the world has laid out that the world's weather is changing, and changing significantly.
GREENHOUSE gases and to a lesser extent the El Nino current in the Pacific Ocean contributed to making 2004 the fourth warmest year on Earth since temperature measurements began worldwide at the end of the 19th century, NASA scientists said.

"There has been a strong warming trend over the past 30 years, a trend that has been shown to be due primarily to increasing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere," said James Hansen, a climatologist at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, outside Washington.

The warmest years on record were, in descending order, 1998, 2002 and 2003, the National Aeronautics and Space administration said on its website.

    The weather has been deregulated for years! Hence this is what happens under privatised weather; Liberal weather and why ideologically, representing the big energy corporations, they cannot see the minimum basis of Kyoto.
