    This will bring out the greens and lefties screaming “ global warming ”, The green tax and carbon footprint governments must love these ' let's-raise-the-taxes-again' reasons for making money from the ignorant masses.

    This claim is based on manipulated data records, whereby earlier years have been adjusted downwards to make global warming appear real. Satellite data does not agree with the claims of hottest year, yet the media totally ignore satellite data, which is verified by high atmosphere balloon data and instead slavishly follow the press releases from the warmist agenda government scientists.

    The Earth has been heating-up for the past 20,000 years and will likely continue to warm for the next 30,000. There is nothing we can do about it. Focus on building better refrigeration and those in cooler climes, enjoy the warmer weather.

    My guess is after Odumbo gets out of office you won't hear any of this malarky any longer.
    Nasa can go back to space travel rather than this nonsense and its Muslim outreach program.

    It's climate change and it has been going on ever since the world got a gas film covering on the surface.

    It will be going on longer than it takes to discredit the loony science that NASA has to deal with just to keep its' head above water (pun intended).

    And what if the so called experts find out its the Sun causing the problems and heating up the planet,
