So, just to make sure I am on the right track here, from the 1940's to 1977 global temperatures dropped 2.7° F but have they managed to climb back up to where they were since 1977?

But far to much money is invested, Al Gore is all in, for them to let loose. They can not let loose of this total farce.
Don't forget the little ice-age that the planet experienced for a few hundred years. That cooling period gave us the black death in Europe, cute songs like "Ring around the Rosy," and the year without a summer, and we only just climbed out of it around 1910 or so.

We are on the knife's edge of falling back into that little ice-age, Wisconsin just had the coldest day in July, which broke the previously held record cold for July back in 1900.

When the baloney of global warming didn't change.... the science of it did... climate change now? Great, now anything and everything can be attributed to CO2 gas... smells more like BS... let me get this right, you wrapped the world in CO2 which TRAPS heat in (this is their original hypothesis) and it warms the planet... now it cools the planet too... it seems it can do just about everything... you know the magical bullet that killed JFK, this is the magical gas that is used to tax people more...

The comforting think is that the troglodytes in the Republican Party are going to lose this fight. Waxman Markey has passed the House. Reid will get something through in the Senate after August recess. All the Luddite cries of the sky is falling have failed. The claims of scientific opposition and global cooling are laughably pathetic.

The poles have shifted before too, you have a tax plan to prevent that from reoccurring too?

The frozen water in the Arctic is not going to raise ocean levels if it melts, it is already displacing the ocean water.

When ice melts in your glass of water, does it overflow the top of the glass?

Nothing like scaring the living hell out of gullible little children, so they take part in a propaganda commercial to further your ideological, political or financial agenda.

Every year, just like clockwork, people forget how hot it was last summer and think this summer is the hottest ever. Personally, having been raised in a very hot area, all the air conditioning exaggerates the heat when you are in between your house, car, and shopping. My city used to be farms and citrus groves, that is totally gone now and the trees have been cut down, the irrigation stopped and we have nothing but wall to wall cement buildings and asphalt that give off an enormous amount of heat during the night and actually carried over to the next day. I note that everytime a storm approaches and rain is predicted, it doesn't rain, it actually avoids the entire city.
