I found the link to the global warming article very informative and has greated a desire to find more info. It's hard to know what to believe when there are such conflicting "facts".

argh.... the global warming article link is there as an example of the kind of article that is NOT useful.

if anyone is interested, I can go through it closely and show HOW to read the article critically.
