I read about that, and as interesting as it may seem, I think that this would be an "irregular" warming of the earth.

I still drive to work too, but that's because I don't really have a choice. I do try to choose green alternatives like walking to the store instead of driving down the street and using less paper. It's not just the cars!

I agree, it's sad really but it's no excuse to not do our part. At least we can say we tried.

I am not a believer in the Church of Gore.
I'm not a preacher of Gore but given that this winter is turning out to be unusually mild (look outside) and the CO2 ppm in the air has doubled from what it was before industrialization is of particular concern. On that note this is an interesting read about the coming ice age.
