A much more reliable resource would be here:

The petition really doesn't matter as Austin made it seem that I was the only one who had this opinion and I simply proved that Austin was wrong.

What does that sound like? Let’s not kid ourselves. This is, and always has been the goal of the AGW “green” crowd.

Never forget “Green is the new Red”

Look into UN Agenda 21. It answers a lot of questions.

Business will adapt and flourish as they always have. Not to fear, change is natural. Whole industries will evolve and some will go under, but that is always the way. (Who here remembers the huge ice industry before refrigeration? Armies of men, fleets of ships cutting and transporting ice from New England; the vast numbers of people employed taking care of horses before cars; most of origional S&P 500 companies are not even around anymore.)

I'd love the GWers to explain how the Medieval period of history had warmer temps and a more severe warming period than we do now, yet they had no industrial development, no SUVs, just a bunch of belching and farting cows. Hard to argue for "man made" climate change when we ignore little facts.

Colbalt, the sad fact is CRUs primary objective was to rid the world of the concept of the MWP.

According to the people we know are liars, there simply was no MWP.
