Propaganda! Global Warming to Continue for Centuries

PARIS - Global warming is so severe that it will "continue for centuries," leading to a far different planet in 100 years, warned a grim landmark report from the world's leading climate scientists and government officials. Yet, many of the experts are hopeful that nations will now take action to avoid the worst scenarios.

They tried to warn of dire risks without scaring people so much they'd do nothing - inaction that would lead to the worst possible scenarios.

Comment: Yes, there is Global Warming. Yes, it is partly due to human activities. No, it is not mainly due to human activity, it is cyclical and we are at that point on the cycle where rapid warming is followed by sudden, massive, cooling as it has done again and again throughout history. And sudden glacial rebound occurss much, much, much faster than the mainstream science currently admits.

We here at SOTT don't often go out on a limb about such things, and when we do, it is because we have done the research, so you can take this one to the bank.

Powerful Fla. Storms Kill 19, Raze Homes

LADY LAKE, Fla. - Disaster crews with dogs went from one pile of debris to another in a search for bodies Friday after powerful storms, including at least one tornado, smashed hundreds of homes across central Florida and killed 19 people or more.

It was the second-deadliest combination of thunderstorms and tornados in Florida history, cutting a 40-mile swath of destruction across four counties just before daybreak, terrorizing residents of one of the nation's biggest retirement communities, and leaving trees and fields littered with clothes, furniture and splintered lumber.

Residents helped pull the dead from the ruins.
