Top Scientists Say Earth Is Doomed

The melting of the Arctic has greatly accelerated this summer, a warning sign that some scientists worry could mean global warming has passed an ominous tipping point.

Greenland's ice sheet melted this summer 19 billion tons more than the previous high mark. And for the first time on record, the Northwest Passage was open to navigation, great news for Canada .
More good news is that summer sea ice may be completely gone in five years which means less iceberg dangers for ships .

It is the burning of coal, oil , Tobacco and other fossil fuels that produces carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, responsible for man-made global warming .

Politicians are thought to create 30% of hot air released into the atmosphere and scientists looking for funding by using inaccurate data based only on the last 100 years and calling it global warming even though its not global are responsible for 25% of the hot air and 80% of the fear mongering.

For the past several days, government diplomats have been debating in Bali the outlines of a new climate treaty calling for tougher limits on these gases. It must be a tough job going to one of the most beautiful holiday locations in the world and staying in 5 star hotels, no distractions, just work, work, work I'm sure.
More than 18 scientists said that they were surprised by the level of ice melt this year. Then again they were wrong about the computer crashes in the year 2000.

552 billion tons of ice melted this summer from the Greenland ice sheet, according to preliminary satellite data to be released by NASA Wednesday. That's 15 percent more than the annual average summer melt.

It has been rumoured that Donald Trump has been buying up land in Greenland to build a billion dollar golf course on.
El Nino , Al Gore and high levels of greenhouse gasses are raising global temperatures enough to break the record set in 1998.

Mosquitoes that carry malaria, gonorrhea or dengue fever are moving into formerly inhospitable areas at higher elevations. Global warming is expected to increase the range of mosquitoes and the virulence of their diseases.

More than 250 people died in a heat wave that baked much of the United States in 1999, and in 2003 extreme heat waves killed 20,000 people in Europe and 1,500 in India. " You could fry an egg on the dead bodies that were piling up" said Paul Leon of "Planet Concern Europe."

Coral reefs that protect coastal areas and harbour some of the most colorful life on Earth are dying prematurely because of warming ocean waters and higher levels of carbon dioxide. Nemo no longer has a home.

"Its the end of the world" stated Pat Gilbreath pastor of the "United in Jesus way" church in Surrey England. " Its been predicted all along, first the heat and the drought with the failing of the crops then the floods, then the plague with the mosquitoes and then the son of the Prince of lies Al Gore." (Mr Gilbreath refers to Michael Moore as Satan) "It was written that a false saviour would rise up and we would shower him with accolades and call him Noble and blessed but really he is our doom."

Mr Gore replied in a statement, " I have no ambitions to take over the world I merely want the world to do as I say, and please buy my mocumentary "An Inconvenient Truth" out on DVD."

On a lighter note:

Led Zeppelin returned to rock the stage with their first full set in 19 years at the O2 Arena in Greenwich . Has beens from the television and pop world which included Liam Gallagher and Sir Paul McCartney came out in hand fulls to see them.

Old Knudsen who wasn't at the concert made a comment earlier, " led who? nope I don't go in for that f***ing long haired banjo music."

I'm outraged. The OBB should have used a photograph of a young, naked and sweaty lady, to illustrate the main benefit of global warming. Call this balanced reporting? Pah!
