Time For The Global Warmenists To Cool It?

This article appeared today in the Washington Times. It seems that record temperatures are being set all over the world. Record low temperatures that is:
"Al Gore says global warming is a planetary emergency. It is difficult to see how this can be so when record low temperatures are being set all over the world. In 2007, hundreds of people died, not from global warming, but from cold weather hazards.

Since the mid-19th century, the mean global temperature has increased by 0.7 degrees Celsius. This slight warming is not unusual, and lies well within the range of natural variation. Carbon dioxide continues to build in the atmosphere, but the mean planetary temperature hasn't increased significantly for nearly nine years. Antarctica is getting colder. Neither the intensity nor the frequency of hurricanes has increased. The 2007 season was the third-quietest since 1966. In 2006 not a single hurricane made
landfall in the U.S."

In the face of this kind of evidence it's hard to see how the alarmist global warming crowd can continue to claim we are facing some planetary emergency. Maybe it's time for them to cool it on the fear and panic mongering. Read the whole thing.
