You are not the only person saying this . . .

And I think society is going to discover that dis-belief of "science" is going to become a REALLY, REALLY big problem.


> Earth's temperature is not increasing" - has not been for a handful of years; however, until recently it seemed to be, and in fact, Earth's temperature, as seems reasonable to expect, rises and falls the same as that of any other living body or organism;


There is also a scientific debate as to whether or not it is even possible to measure the temperature of the earth. The question is: how do you define the "temperature of the earth".

What the "global warming" crowd seems to mean by the earths temperature is really just some sort of average value of all of their temperature measuring stations. But this is very problematical because the population of temperature stations change overtime, and the local environments of temperature stations change. E.g. someone builds a dark asphalt parking lot right next to your thermometer. It significantly changes the measured temperatures.

So, the question of whether the earths temperature is increasing or not is NOT a simple question.
