Yep, the earth sure is getting HOT! [url]http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/sci/tech/newsid_1752000/1752999.stm[/url] [i] US scientists say they have established that much of Antarctica is cooling. This is at odds with earlier reports which suggested a slight recent warming on the continent. The researchers say the cooling is causing soil invertebrates to decline by more than 10% annually. They also found that lake productivity is falling, with organisms incorporating significantly less carbon dioxide (CO2) into organic carbon compounds. They say their findings, published online in the science journal Nature, challenge models of climate and ecosystem change. They write: "The average air temperature at the Earth's surface has increased by 0.06 degrees Celsius per decade during the 20th Century, and by 0.19 degrees C per decade from 1979 to 1998." ......

I hate listening to people talking about the hole in the ozone layer over the Arctic circle. We have the technology to see the hole (for maybe 20-30 years) but, for all we know it could have always been there.

Interesting point. I'd never thought of that.

For what it's worth, the same can be said in reverse for the following: No human has seen or has irrefutable proof that the earth was created by a "big bang" or took hundreds of millions of years to get where we are now. For all we know, some supernatural dude in a cosmic lab created it in six days and called it even.
