Bjorn Lomborg debunks the hysteria.

Nothing like a scientist who actually looks at the data.

Canada, Denmark, Norway, Russia and our own USA (Via Alaska) are making territorial claims on the "offshore" Arctic Ocean, because the region is a source of fossil fuel which can be used for energy. What does this have to do with global warming? Well, it takes around 800,000 years to convert decayed plant, animal and fish matter to crude oil. This process required being under water for eons. It is obvious that the North Pole had a different climate at one time. The idea that humans can control the climate changes which have occurred throughout the earth history is simply a faith-based religion. The planet has been around a lot longer than human beings and the climate changed constantly before humans and will change constantly with humans. We cannot stop this. The North Pole says it all.
