* AGW = Anthropogenic ("manmade") Global Warming
Britain's David Rose, writing in the UK Daily Mail ("The mini Ice Age starts here") points out several factors disputing the global warming alarmists's arguments. One passage that destroys a cherished alarmist claim -- that Arctic ice will be gone by 2013 -- bears emphasis:
"According to the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre in Colorado, Arctic summer sea ice has increased by 409,000 square miles, or 26 per cent, since 2007 – and even the most committed global warming activists do not dispute this."
Contrary to what Al Gore and others would have us believe, the science is definitely not settled.
