Junk science. One belch from Mt. Pinatubo(sp?) puts more CO2 and ozone
destroying chemicals in the air than man has done in the last 100 years. I
question the entire argument of global warming (remember only 10 years ago
it was global cooling). We have be keeping track of such things for a mere
100 years out of many billions. That amounts, at best, to a single data
point on the scale of global history. How can anyone but a liberal plot a
trend from a single data point?
