I'm aware of the news. My curiosity has more to do with why bleat99 chose to post that link.

Yeah, those damn mastodons and their burning fossil fuels were REALLY screwing up the earth

Good thing there were not too many global warming nuts around, or it might not have reverted back to an ice age or two.

Global warming is bullshit, but it gives the central planners an excuse to grab more power.

Pathetic Cordy.

Climate myths: Global warming is down to the Sun, not humans

And finally...

Global Warming Myths - Green Options Community

Which has been vetted rigorously by authorities on the subject and thoroughly debunks the "points" made in that article, and is not some opinion piece by someone whose talking points have been largely abandoned by people who have money on the line (See: My original article, which neatly rips apart Heartland's stance who just happened to write the article you linked, LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL.)

Just....pathetic. The crap in your article has long been debunked, and I'm shocked to see half of it in anything published in the last 5 years frankly
