Just A Bunch of Scientific Claptrap and Lies

That's what you'll hear from the climate change denier fucktards who will dismiss the "The 2009 State of the Climate report."  just released by NOAA. They will use their millions of dollars from oil and coal interests to shout that it's just another misguided and sloppy scientific study by a bunch of 'hot air fanatics'. The reality, of course, is that this is another study "based on comprehensive data from multiple sources," and not from some single weather station in the parking lot of a Las Vegas hotel as the deniers will charge. It's just science after all so there is absolutely no reason for you to take it seriously. So believe the folks with a vested interest in denying a warming world if you want but... it's really happening:
The 2009 State of the Climate report released today draws on data for 10 key climate indicators that all point to the same finding: the scientific evidence that our world is warming is unmistakable. More than 300 scientists from 160 research groups in 48 countries contributed to the report, which confirms that the past decade was the warmest on record and that the Earth has been growing warmer over the last 50 years.

Based on comprehensive data from multiple sources, the report defines 10 measurable planet-wide features used to gauge global temperature changes. The relative movement of each of these indicators proves consistent with a warming world. Seven indicators are rising: air temperature over land, sea-surface temperature, air temperature over oceans, sea level, ocean heat, humidity and tropospheric temperature in the “active-weather” layer of the atmosphere closest to the Earth’s surface. Three indicators are declining: Arctic sea ice, glaciers and spring snow cover in the Northern hemisphere.
We are in deep 'kimchee' and everyone with a lick of sense knows it. I don't even have to read the scientific data to know it's real...I can see it in my garden every day. This is a real problem that demands concrete and immediate solutions. Unfortunately, concrete and immediate solutions to real problems demands real leasdership and we are sorely lacking in that respect and besides, Al Gore flies in planes and has a big house and is fat and most of all we had a big snowfall last winter.
