Is global warming really bad?

Recently, I finished reading Michael Crichton's State of Fear. This book changed the way I think about global warming and islands disappearing and glaciers melting. It comes with facts that some glaciers are actually growing, islands would not disappear and not every cities are getting warmer.

I read this news onLow-lying Pacific islands 'growing not sinking' in BBC
The islands of Tuvalu, Kiribati and the Federated States of Micronesia are among those which have grown, because of coral debris and sediment.

The study, published in the magazine the New Scientist, predicts that the islands will still be there in 100 years' time.

I would still make an effort to be environment friendly. But on news about global warming, I would take it with a pinch of salt.

Maybe this one article will give you a further insight.

All of this matters because the IPCC has been advertised as the last and definitive word on climate science. Its reports are the basis on which Al Gore, President Obama and others have claimed that climate ruin is inevitable unless the world reorganizes its economies with huge new taxes on carbon. Now we are discovering the U.N. reports are sloppy political documents intended to drive the climate lobby's regulatory agenda.

The lesson of climategate and now the IPCC's shoddy sourcing is that the claims of the global warming lobby need far more rigorous scrutiny.
