This might upset some people of good will

After saying I might be off for a week or three and then staying quiet for about six weeks, here's a new beginning with a quote (if you don't like quotes, read on from the point below: "But what's the point of the above paragraph?"

"The record cold of the decades of the 1890's, 1940's, 1970's, 1980's and most recently the bitter northern hemisphere winters of 2000-2001, 2001-2002, 2002-2003 argue against the occurrence of harmful man induced climate change (global warming). Also Winter 2000-2001 and 2004-2005 in Siberian Russia, as well as Winter 2004 in Antarctica were the coldest in recorded history. And let's not forget that January 2004 in Boston, MA was the coldest January in 111 years. Grand Forks, ND set it's all time record low of -44 deg. below zero F, Fosston, MN also at -50 deg. below zero F and Saskatchewan, Canada saw minimum temperatures fall to -62 deg. below zero F, all in Winter 2003-2004.

But what is the point of the above paragraph? It is to demonstrate that for every short term global record warm weather event that is heralded in the media as an example of global warming, there is a counter balancing global record cold weather event, usually ignored by the media."

I need to do this because at some point in my musical background I vowed not to be fooled again. So when I see the fooling done big time, Al Gore, the United Nations and the European Commission all paying lip service to the Greenhouse Effect*), the least I can do is quote someone who, I think, has his facts in order.
