According to "A Really Inconvenient Truth: Global Warming is not real." A group of scientists grouped together and signed a OP-ED saying that global warming is not actually supported by science.

Daily Mail reports that the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit, after taking data from nearly 30,000 stations around the world, have found that the earth stopped warming in 1997. http://www.poli...

Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Present your changes to the current tax...
