Earlier NASA scientists were saying the "warming" was not happening.
But then last Tuesday there was a large sun spot eruption.
The earlier reports were saying these were dwindling.

Eventually they will figure it out, but I think that it is a large and complex task.

Yes, but is eventually soon enough? Who knows--that's a large and complex task too! Thanks for your thought-provoking comment.

I just wish there was more thoughtful science to the debate and a lot less politics.

But there is some good------before the global warming arguments (whether it is myth or fact)
there was less attention spent on environmental concerns and conservation.
Now people are more aware of the environment, and how their actions impact it.

Absolutely, CKScott.

Gotta love a good, civil debate and people willing to take action by addressing important issues that often appear within our own backyards.

Just about the time we think science has everything figured out, something new will crop up and challenge us to reconsider old truths. We search for more answers daily to questions that didn't exist last week.

It's really quite wonderful and exciting to know that we will probably never know all the questions to ask nor will all of our questions be answered. We just need to avoid becoming fear-filled and ugly in our shared search for truths.

Thanks again, Carrie.
