    Fifteen years with no statistically significant increase in global temperatures does not mean that the human race is not causing the climate to change, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson told CNSNews.com on Tuesday.

    Jackson reasserted her faith in manmade global warming in response to a question from CNSNews.com asking if she agreed with the recent statement by prominent climate scientist Phil Jones that there had been no statistically significant global warming since 1995.

    of course Lisa Jackson believes in it.

    That's her meal ticket...a cushy, well-paying government job. What's a little lie for a six-figure income?

    It is apparant that global temperatures are trending upward. the problem is that the available data set is only a small subset compared with the age of this planet. whether we base our conclusion on the old earth theory commonly accepted by the majority of scientists or new earth beliefs of strict creationists, 100 years of accurate temperature data is inadequate. looking at places where glaciers have melted, we see that some have covered remains of trees. weather is cyclical. it follows multiply cycles, in fact. we can extrapolate from available data and hypothesize based on that data, but that data is not extennsive enough to be conclusive. i agree that we are in a warming cycle, but is this representative of a disastrous shift or just part of the natural cycle? we can, at best only conjecture.

    Was there climate change during Noah's Flood? (NO!)

    Only thing matters is changes effect where people live and produce food.

    And if climate changes are not the product of humans doesn't it do more harm to focus on trying to change it through human activites rather than learning ways of coping with the warming?

    Agree 100%. We should kill federal flood insurance in low lying coastal areas. Maybe some costal land could be converted to public use. We should increase fresh water storage for flood control and drinking water. We should reduce pollution whatever the cause of climate change.

    15 years is to short a time period to come to any conclusion about a cycle that has a minimum period of 100,000 years or more. Of course, if one believes that God crammed several ice ages into the 6,000 year existence of this universe . . . then we have no common point to start a discussion.

    Misuse of statistics . . . for example, most ever time the crime statistics jump, the police chief says, "We need more money." When crime statistics drop, the chief says, "We are doing a great job for you." Chief never says "We have excess budget" or "We are doing a poor job."
