    Now the only question is what SPF we should use- 15 or 30? ;) :D

    It all makes sense now, thanks Phat_Pat! ;) :)

    Makes you wonder if the sun is going to continue to increase the output - but regardless, its right in line with Murphy's Law - couldn't be a better time to increase the wattage on the sun with all the extra greenhouse gasses around. You'd think it'd be nice to save these events for the iceages.

    As for pirates, I'm thinking there were more than 17 pirates in 2000....

    The problem with the theory of global warming is that the "equation" for it contains so many variables, many for which we have only a small amount of data and some for which we have ZERO data... and any single variable has the potential to push the global temperature toward a minimum or a maximum.

    I'm not saying we should continue to gush endless quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere... but we should continue to refine our understanding of what factors contribute to the mean surface temperature of the Earth, so that we can learn how to influence the temperature both down AND up, should circumstances warrant it.

    The funny thing is...

    When we have record highs... everybody thinks the world is over heating

    When we have record lows... everybody thinks its the return of the ice age.

    Who thinks that??

    Back to the subject, this could be kind of a shot to environmentalists. Not good.

    Yeah, and everyone will skim over the bit that says that 70 - 90% of global warming is due to terrestrial causes.

    Environmentalists won't, but people who run big businesses/ big polluting companies will use that 10-30% to their advantage.

    What? Bill Joy is responsible for global warming?

    I knew it ...
