Ta.  Maybe I misread the context of the comment, but I wouldn't say that
the content of that article (esp. the only three summers data) gives much
in the way of support to global warming sceptics.

    Define global warming skeptic;
    a person who believes it's not happening? or,
    a person who believes it is happening, but mankind has nothing to do
with it and can't do anything about it?
    or...?

    To clear the air, I believe it is happening, slowly and inexorably, man
has precious little to do with it, can't stop it if he tried, and every
proposal to prevent it basically calls for a return to the Stone Age, i.e.,
the destruction of Western Civilization as we know it.
    Until you can get India and China on board to do something about it, you
are wasting your breath, IMO. =IF= it really even is something man can
affect at all......
    Meanwhile, the Martian Ice caps continue to shrink and the sun keeps
hurling CME's at us.

so, you are really saying that non-western civilisations == stone-age?
