EDITORS NOTE: This article is mostly about local efforts in the New York City Metro area, but halfway through the article the fear mongering kicks in, with Scientists from Columbia University making a prediction of the sea level rising four feet (see below). They then make a statement saying Average global temperatures were warmer at the last millennium, the year 1000, than they are today., completely undermining the argument that humans burning fossil fuels, and creating greenhouse gases, are responsible for changing the climate of the planet. If the ‘Medieval Warm Period’ was warmer than it is today, how is human activity to blame…

"Scientists at Columbia have projected a worst-case scenario in which the sea rises nearly four feet in the metropolitan area over the next 100 years, an increase that researchers said would pose particular risk to river estuaries..."
"Climate also varies and evolves naturally over time, aside from human influence Average global temperatures were warmer at the last millennium, the year 1000, than they are today But the 'Medieval warm period' was then followed by nearly 500 years of sharply colder temperatures, 'the little ice age' Temperatures began rising again in the mid-1800's, at the same time that the Industrial Revolution, with its reliance on the burning of fossil fuels, was developing..."CITATION: New York Times - Nov 19, 2000 - page 47 SOURCE: PROQUEST: PDF: ARCHIVE:
