Thanx for the link of the tundra to forest change from I09, it just caught my atencion, I can only imagine what it must look like to those who are familiar with the area (been there for year's) having so drastic change in their live's too. If you recall, we discussed the reflection thing a few year's back as a concerning issue, and YES ... you know this WILL accelerate warmth, I'm not even a bloody scientist and can figure out that one, as easy as figuring out what a distributor cap does for a car engine ... so these "deny-er's" are nothing more than "liar's" as far as I'm concerened.

Later Infodell ....

I love that comic 9gag posted by Phil Plait. The ZenPencils.com guy made it. He's also got some good stuff by Einstein and Carlin.

But my favorite is Sagan.

RC: The Eskimos up there will notice it all right -- but even when they start needing air conditioning up there, the denialists in this country will still insist nothing's wrong (as long as the oil companies keep paying them to, anyway).

Grundy: Cool comic, thanks. 3,000 people would probably still be alive today if the 9/11 hijackers hadn't believed in an afterlife. I'll be checking out Zen Pencils.
