I don't give a squat about Al. I also know that the temperatures we are currently seeing are not historical highs if you look back before the "mini ice age" that started around 1200. However, there's a difference this time in that man does appear to be causing the issue. Who knows how the Earth can deal with that. In addition, man has a lot more investments that will be devastated by the impending rise in sea levels. Regardless of the cause, it's a problem. Whether it's warming or cooling, dramatic climatic changes have and will continue to cause serious issues. If we can counter or at least temper man's effects that would be a good thing.
