The Revalation

"As a former missionary in Kenya," wrote John Christy of the U of Alabama Huntsville in 2001. "We know that climate will change despite anything we might do. Glaciers and ice caps have been melting since end of the last ice age. That will continue. Sea level has been rising for thousands of years. Areas threatened by further rises will see perhaps an additional inch per decade."

This rosy scenario is from the only naysayer in the current AP story on global warming. There is a tie-in to naysayers and the clue is in the first sentence I quoted here. Relality is oh so different. Consensus doesn't mean everyone. But it means a majority less influenced by belief. We've seen the damage it can do. Let's not let it do any more.
