Writer's Block: Let the sun shine in

Do you believe in global warming? Do you think the sustainability concept is undervalued, valid, or taken too far?

Interesting question. It was really hot this summer, and really cold this winter, so it's hard to say. I do know that there has been careless handling of climate statistics that  make it look like we are warming more than we are.  A good example was the debunking back in 2007 of the assertion that 1998 was not the warmest year on record. More recently, it's been found that NOAA has overstated the temperatures of the Great Lakes, which helps bump up average temperatures.

Neither of these allegations disprove global warming. But it does mean the doomsayers should be taken with a grain of salt.
