Global warming is here. It has been going for 20,000 years. It is 8,000 years since the land now called Chicago and Boston melted free of the glacier.

Warming has not been uniform. A long time moving average would be needed to track it.

Global warming has been going on for 20,000 years. Human activity did not effect the first 18,000 years. Whether human activity was significantly involved since then is questionable.

One mile, for one day of less snow cover around the Earth, is about 10,000 square miles absorbing the sun's heat rather than reflecting it. For 15 years it has been getting colder while CO2 in the air has increased. Clearly there are other factors at work.

Politicians are using fear of global warming as an excuse to destroy the use of coal and oil and gain control of industry. In the hope of continuing their sham, they have renamed their excuse from global warming to climate change.

The sham continues and must be recognized for what it is.
