Temperatures have been warmer than today for almost all of the past 10,000 years - The revamped cap-and-trade (control-and-tax) bill that Senators Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and John Kerry (D-Mass.) are trying to foist on the American public is predicated on a flat-out lie.
The control-and-tax proponents would have you believe that our planet has been enduring unprecedented global warming (now coyly referred to as 'climate change'), but the facts do not bear that out. Facts. Oh, those damnable facts.
Created by Cuffy and Clow in 1997, and based on Greenland ice core records, this chart shows global temperatures for the past 15,000 years. (See chart below)
You'll see that today's benign climate is not even close to being the warmest on record.
Not even close.
