Global Warming

As I was driving to work this morning I heard on the radio that today we're to turn off all our powered devices for the 5 minutes before 11am. The purpose of coarse is rase awareness for environmental issues.
So here's a new theory that I haven't heard before, global warming is caused by an increase in the sun's irradiance. This increase causes the ocean to emit large amounts of carbon dioxide which we misinterpret as the cause of global warming. By comparing us to Mars and also seeing it increase in global temperature they've found evidence to support these conclusions.

Of coarse it's just a theory and one that comes from Russia none the less, but if you read the article it states we're currently at our global warming peak and by 2055-60 our earth will hit a mini ice age.
Yikes I guess I shouldn't hope to invest in a summer cabin in Tofino for my grandchildren, they might not enjoy the beaches at that point.

Hey Lisa! If you want to see something really amazing about Global Warming watch "An Inconvenient Truth" a doc by Al Gore about the current situation and what could happen in the next 50 years. It is a super video and highly recommended! Hope Quentin is feeling better!!
Cheers,
