Default We need many points of view

Thanks, ITD and jrc, for your good examples of these important and opposing points of view. The article about Professor Bill Gray, from Colorado State University, is especially interesting. It describes how the famous hurricane predictor is passing the baton of his job to a new guy, so that he can spend more time studying global warming.

My gut still tells me that the earth has already passed a tipping point, and the climate will get warmer for the foreseeable future. Its good to read articles which present evidence that the melting we are seeing is a short term event. My real question isn’t “if the earth is warming”, but for how long? Will it be years, decades, centuries, or millenniums?
