"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

A satellite survey shows that between 1992 and 2003, the East Antarctic ice sheet gained about 45 billion tonnes of ice - enough to reduce the oceans' rise by 0.12 millimetres per year. The ice sheets that cover Antarctica's bedrock are several kilometres thick in places, and contain about 90% of the world's ice.
So much for the theory of "Global Warming."
Speaking to the BBC's Today programme, Harlon Watson, US' Chief Climate Negotiator said: "We are still not convinced of the need to move forward quite so quickly."
He said that an emissions reductions agreement would harm the US economy, and went on to cast doubt over the science behind global warming and climate change itself. "There is general agreement that there is a lot known, but there is also a lot to be known," he said.
Global Warming is perhaps one of the most "unique" debates out there because many scientists claim that mankind is responsible for the increasing temperature on planet earth while just as many (it seems) claim that people are not to blame for it getting hotter around the world. Either way, it is a pointless argument as there is not enough information to decide one way or the other.
