Most in this debate have prefaced their opinions with the disclaimer, "if
global warming exists." However, I think we can dismiss it as "junk-science"
simply by looking at NASA studies. These studies inidicate cooling not
warming (back to the global cooling theory). In addition, the largest
increase in greenhouse gases occurred before 1940 when all the CFCs and
other man made greenhouse gases were not yet in use. The increase since 1940
have been only a fraction of that time preceeding. Until someone plausibly
explains that dichotomy I reject global warming as "junk-science."
