Kyoto and Global Warming continued

The information on global warming continues to be different on CNN and Fox. Here are two articles dated today that are quite different. I am showing some statements from each plus the links.

CNN: “Scientists: Global warming is real” [WASHINGTON (Reuters)]

Studies looking at the oceans and melting Arctic ice leave no room for doubt that it is getting warmer, people are to blame, and the weather is going to suffer, climate experts have said. New computer models that look at ocean temperatures instead of the atmosphere show the clearest signal yet that global warming is well under way, Tim Barnett of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography said. …

"The debate over whether or not there is a global warming signal is now over, at least for rational people," he said. …

The report was published one day after the United Nations Kyoto Protocol took effect, a 141-nation environmental pact the United States government has spurned for several reasons, including stated doubts about whether global warming is occurring and is caused by people. Barnett urged U.S. officials to reconsider.

"Could a climate system simply do this on its own? The answer is clearly no," Barnett said. …

"The debate is what are we going to do about it." …

FOX
: “Kyoto count-up” [a Junk Science article by Steven Milloy]

Feb. 16, 2005, is a day that may well live in scientific and economic infamy. That’s the day that the international global warming treaty known as the Kyoto Protocol went into effect around the world — but, fortunately, not in the U.S. and Australia. …

Both global warming skeptics and advocates agree that the potential amount of warming that hypothetically might be avoided through Kyoto Protocol implementation is roughly 0.07 degrees centigrade by the year 2050. …

That’s why we think of the Kyoto Protocol more as a “global economic suicide pact” than as an “international treaty.” …

If the estimated cost-benefit analysis of the Kyoto Protocol isn’t sufficiently shocking, let me draw your attention to an article in the Feb. 14 Wall Street Journal exposing the top secret “junk science” behind global warming hysteria. …
