Facts need adjustment

because 'the science is in dispute'. Errr, well, apparently, it isn't, at least not by the scientists. Actually, facts are a danger to corporate profits, and thus must be ignored. Won't somebody please think of the profits??!! /Simpson's Church lady voice.

Global Temperature Highest in Millennia The planet's temperature has climbed to levels not seen in thousands of years, warming that has begun to affect plants and animals, researchers report in Tuesday's issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

...[ James Hansen of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies], who first warned of the danger of climate change decades ago, said that human-made greenhouse gases have become the dominant climate change factor.

The study said the recent warming has brought global temperature to a level within about one degree Celsius -- 1.8 degree Fahrenheit -- of the maximum temperature of the past million years.

“If further global warming reaches 2 or 3 degrees Celsius, we will likely see changes that make Earth a different planet than the one we know. The last time it was that warm was in the middle Pliocene, about 3 million years ago, when sea level was estimated to have been about 25 meters (80 feet) higher than today,” Hansen said.
