Here you have it folks: the ultimate reason there is no global warming. The temperature stats are cooked, literally and deliberately. I have that on good authority, The Heartland Institute which was created by right-wingers to give us the unvarnished truth. You'll be hearing this explanation soon on Fox and other right-thinking media whenever it is time to deny global warming.
Meanwhile our oil buddies at Exxon are still funnelling donations to the "non-profits" that work hard to make global warming seem like a political conspiracy among eco-loons. Exxon's donations have fallen way off, less than half-milion last year compared millions per year up until 2005. Perhaps the hard times have even hit the oil biz.
So the next time somebody tries to make you believe the glaciers are melting on Greenland or the Alps or the Antarctic, tell 'em the thermometers are all screwed up. Besides, I don't see any glaciers melting here, do you? That should settle the global warming argument once and for all.
