    Default Is Global Warming Hooey? Significant Cooling...

    Well, I wouldn't say it's all hogwash but there's been a significant expansion of ice in the Arctic, 3 years after the BBC and some scientists predicted it would be devoid of ice entirely. Moreover, it's now considered that there has been "a pause in warming" since 1997.

    It seems this is something too complex for us too fully understand right now. Thoughts?

    I don't know that our actions can be considered 'helping'...

    And yeah, climate change not global warming.

    Global warming is soooo 1998.

    Can't really argue against this...

    In fact one could assert that hockey's original development and growth in the 19th century was due to the colder temperatures at the tail end of the so-called 'Little Ice Age'.

    Maybe if things get hot enough we'll one day have a sport that focuses on guys standing around on a patch of sand doing as little as possible... we could call it, I dunno, 'baseball' or something.

    The period of record human weather data is statistically insignificant period of time vs the age of the planet (unless you're a creationist).
