World may not be warming, say scientists - Times Online

World may not be warming, say scientists - Times Online
“The temperature records cannot be relied on as indicators of global change,” said John Christy, professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, a former lead author on the IPCC.
So now the "deniers" include "a former lead author on the IPCC" and another scientist "who was invited by the panel to review its last report." And there are many others as well, who say that the temperature measurements upon which the global warming theory is based "are contaminated with surface effects from industrialization and data quality problems. These add up to a large warming bias."

I guess it is time for the global warming crowd to fire up their sarcasm machine, throw some ridicule bombs, and launch the ad hominem missles. Because, as Al Gore says, the debate is over. Except that it isn't.

You will probably have to wait until the 3 feet of snow in DC melts before you see any of those actions.

Yes, and what this article omits to mention is that a lot of the bias at least from US weather recording stations is toward the COOL side, not the warm side. If these weather stations were located properly in a consistent manner, we'd actually be seeing more warming.
