BBC ever so subtly tries to blame humans - "The ozone layer has seen unprecedented damage in the Arctic this winter due to cold weather in the upper atmosphere," says this article by BBC environmental correspondent Richard Black.

"By the end of March, 40% of the ozone in the stratosphere had been destroyed, against a previous record of 30%," says Black.

Severe ozone depletion has been seen over Scandinavia, Greenland, and parts of Canada and Russia.

It must have pained the BBC to publish this, because their headline - "Arctic ozone levels in never-before-seen plunge" - carefully avoids the word "cold."

However, I will give them credit for admitting - in the very first paragraph - that the damage is due to cold weather in the upper atmosphere.

Then, in an apparent attempt to switch the focus onto humans, Black reminds us that ozone "is destroyed by reactions with industrial chemicals." He also speaks of the Montreal Protocol, which was meant to control the amount of (supposed) ozone-depleting gases that we nasty humans pump into the atmosphere.

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.

"Almost all of the ice-covered regions of the Earth are melting — and seas are rising," said Al Gore -in an op-ed piece in the New York Times on February 27.

Both parts of Gore's statement are false.

Never mind that Mr. Gore makes only passing reference to the IPCC's fraudulent claims that the Himalayan glaciers will all melt by 2035. ("A flawed overestimate," he explains.)

Never mind that Mr. Gore dismisses the IPCC's fraudulent claims that the oceans are rising precipitously. ("Partly inaccurate," he huffs.)
