I'ld like to hear the flip side of that story. It reminds me of Al Gores pic of the "poor Polar bears", that were drifting away to their doom on an ice berg. Same with those smoke stacks. And the last sentence in that article was referencing global warming again. I'm not sure about the rest of the world, but in this country, you'll have a hard time convincing any of the people on this forum, on the east coast as far south as Georgia, and most of the Northern states that global warming was influencing us.
