While we wait for the tanks to start rolling, lat us pause one more moment to savor Hans Blixs absurd remark to MTV (why is that MTV seems to bring out the most ludicrous in public figures, like Clintons straddling what kind of underwear he prefers?) that global warming is a greater threat than weapons of mass destruction.
A new study reported in this week in Nature magazine provides strong evidence in support of a major claim of global wamring skeptics: the rise of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a lagging indicator of warming, rather than the cause of warming. More detailed analysis of samples from ice cores finds that CO2 levels increased in the past after warming had already taken place.
It is unfortunate that larger events will drown out this news, as it has a previous bombshell a month ago, in which two highly regarded Australian economists blew a big hole in the key assumptions in the UNs climate predictions. This house of cards may be starting to tumble down.
