Just as well as melting glaciers are evidence of the opposite.

On this we can agree. I got the wrong "K", but I think it should be Coper=nicus.

Sorry. I overstated on the size business. It's easy to do as evidenced by
your attributions to Bush.

Did I say that???? The experiment would be to prove that man is responsib=le
in a significant way for the climate changes we're witnessing.

I don't, do you? Neither do I believe man's pitiful efforts are responsib=le
for significant climate changes. That's why we need a good experiment.

Of what? That the climate changes? Of course. That man has caused it?

>All this is highly entertaining but is it really Arisaema stuff?

Not really. I wish I'd never responded to Adam's assertion. One can't
really change anyone's mind with this kind of discussion. Belief in
scientific theories is a kind of religion just as the classical religions
are. When they're proved experimentally. they become facts instead of bel=iefs.

As far as politics go, that's even more of a religion for many people. My
view is that politicians are all dangerous.

So how are your Arisaema growing this year?
