    Okay, there we go again.

    Most certainly disturbing data on breeding sea bird populations in the North Sea and the correlation between higher sea temps and lower sand eel populations with the secundary effect on bird populations seems sound

    But is this a result of Man's burning of fossil fuels? The studies of Andrew Masterman of the UK climate clearly show that the UK warmth since 1988 is the result of persistent warm weather patterns giving above average temps with a small contribution from higher northern hemisphere temps. The higher North Sea temps are caused by the same factors.

    So what causes natural variability in UK climate?' Really it's nothing else than variations in weather patterns! That same variation that is cooling South America and South-East Africa for instance And there is little doubt trends will reverse when natural variability favors colder weather patterns across the UK and West Europe.

    The specious argument that what is required to cool UK & North Sea temps is greenhouse gas emission reductions is just persisting myth forming and Kyoto propaganda.

    BTW The http://archive.greenpeace.org/comms/cbio/hoover.html [Broken] in the North Sea (they grind them up to make fertiliser, pig-feed etc) was and continues to be a drect attempt to get those species extinct. What a immense hoax to blame global warming. But everything can be explained with global warming, can't it. Let's open our eyes please.

    You would use six years of data to determine a trend? In environmental terms this is nothing short of wild guessing.

    First you argue that there is no global warming, then there is, no was, but it was caused by the sun, but it is now stopping. What about all of the incorrect ice core samples that you have argued about? I thought this was the error that implied that global warming was real, when it wasn't, but now was.

    Your arguments betray the significance of the events at hand.

    I have no clue what you're talking about. What has this to do with driving sandeels extinct?
