Pagans Publish Two Books of Heresy

From the Drudge Report:
Two powerful new books say today’s global warming is due not to human activity but primarily to a long, moderate solar-linked cycle. Unstoppable Global Warming Every 1500 Years, by physicist Fred Singer and economist Dennis Avery was released just before Christmas. The Chilling Stars: A New Theory of Climate Change, by Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark and former BBC science writer Nigel Calder (Icon Books), is due out in March.

Singer and Avery note that most of the earth’s recent warming occurred before 1940, and thus before much human-emitted CO2. Moreover, physical evidence shows 600 moderate warmings in the earth’s last million years. The evidence ranges from ancient Nile flood records, Chinese court documents and Roman wine grapes to modern spectral analysis of polar ice cores, deep seabed sediments, and layered cave stalagmites.
Not since Copernicus have such unholy ideas been circulated. Hath not Brian Williams of holy NBC declared that the Global Warming argument is over as confirmed by signs in the heavens and the wrath of the scourge Katrina? Hath not the High Priestess of The Weather Channel called for the punishment of the apostates?

Burn the heathens and burn their books, before the gods of Climate Change bring a righteous judgement down upon all of our heads.
