Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye. The verdict is now coming down with respect to the man-made global warming issue. In fact, it is pretty well down with contrary statements from Professor Phil Jones, Director of the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit and, perhaps, the greatest scientific proponent of the man-made global warming THEORY. I have spelt the word theory in capitals because that is all it has ever been since no hard data has ever existed to support the theory. Professor Jones now says "for the past 15 years there has been no statistically significant warming." Further, Professor Jones says skeptics of his theory, people like me with our points against the theory, have been correct. Watch out Suzuki and Gore, burn that unscientific film, bury the polar bears you portray, that did NOT die because of global warming. Your environmental bubbles have been burst and your environmental credibility is now much in doubt because Professor Jones has even conceded that the world in medieval times may well have been warmer than it is in today's climatic conditions. I have said, so very often, the Arctic was at one time forested. This is evidenced by the presence of oil and gas deposits in the region. The Arctic ice has been breaking up for more years than anyone living today can recall because even the Titanic was sunk after striking an iceberg - almost a hundred years ago.
Anyone doubting that Professor Jones has actually made these statements should ride their computers like bucking broncs and Google to Phil Jones Global Warming where the story is contained in a British national tabloid. Putting aside the glow of satisfaction in knowing you have fought the good fight and come out a winner I would remind your readers that my being correct does not remove the reality we can look forward to global warming through the processes of nature. Eventually the world will suffer from deeper oceans encroaching on the shorelines of many nations. We, in the 'have world', will need to ensure some means of dealing with this problem BEFORE it becomes a disaster. I believe, most sincerely, that my concept of using the oceans to provide water to those in need while, at the same time, using the process to marginally control the increasing levels in the oceans of our globe, is the correct one. There I have used the word 'globe' in a more meaningful manner! John E. Milnes, retired environmental scientist
