Why I’m a Global Warming Skeptic

March 3, 2012

So it happens that I don’t believe the full story about global warming, or climate change, or whatever the hell it’s being called this week.  Apparently this makes me a “skeptic.” And I see no reason not to be.  In fact, I see a fairly good reason to be one. Just so we’re clear:  I’m […]
