Will these climatologist ever make up their mind? One day the earth is
burning up and the next day the everything is cooling down.

I take it you didn't understand a thing about the article huh?
What do you say about recent studies that show, for a fact, that co2
levels in the atmosphere stayed relatively stable for 65,000 years,
then during the industrial age grew exponentially?

Don't your intentions count for more than the actual substance? Isn't that
the cry from the left, our intention was to do good but we really screwed up
badly so judge us on our intentions.

I personally want the CO2 levels to be higher than they were for many of
those 650 thousand years as those CO2 levels would allow an Ice Age and
glaciers over most of the US.  So what were the CO2 levels during the last
500 years and what is the % difference for the last 100 years.

Are you familiar with the Gaia theory?

I just skimmed the article but I have heard about this.  Anyway, it
might seem baffling to you, but part of the predicted short-term effect
of global warming is colder weather in Britain and in the northeast US.
 The gulf stream is made colder by the effect of cold water from
melting glaciers, reducing the extent to which the warm water from the
gulf stream warms the land in these regions.  Something like that.
