On Global Warming Mythology

First, another gem from Mark Steyn (linked above). Among other highlights:

"About 1,000 years ago, the Arctic was warmer than it is now. Circa 982, Erik the Red and a bunch of other Vikings landed in Greenland and thought, "Wow! This land really is green! Who knew?" So they started farming it, and were living it up for a couple of centuries. Then the Little Ice Age showed up, and they all died. A terrible warning to us all about "unsustainable development": if a few hundred Vikings doing a little light hunter-gathering can totally unbalance the environment, imagine the havoc John Edwards' new 28,000-square-foot house must be wreaking."

On a more serious note, check out this article from Canada's National Post on the weak scientific "evidence" for global warming.
