Best Paper I've ever read !

Posted Tuesday, April 15, 2008, at 5:21 PM

I have just read the best, most thorough, scientific paper my eyes have ever seen. The subject: Global Warming,

The author: Kristen Byrnes. Age 15, oops sorry, she is 16 now but when she created this website for a high school science project last year, 15 she was. I heard her interview on NPR this morning, visited her website:


and this is her introduction below:

"I will demonstrate that the Earth's warming climate is a result of natural variance and that man made changes in the warming climate in the last 40 years are negligible at best. I will insert pieces of the puzzle from new scientific studies that were not available or were ignored in previous global warming studies.

I add a possible piece of the puzzle, nuclear weapons testing in the late 1950's and early 1960's, that may have made a small contribution to cooling at that time.

After reviewing numerous scientific studies and observing data, it is clear that the theory that "man made increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide are causing global warming" is not likely."

I urge all of my readers to go there and read the rest of her research. If indeed it is her work, that in itself is amazing enough to warrant the time you may think you're wasting reading it. Her analysis is ingenious. I can't wait to see Al Gore debate a 16 yr. old. That would be priceless indeed!

At least republicans are finally admitting that global warming actually exists, 5 years ago Tom Delay would tell you that nothings changed!

Very interesting. This should have gotten the young lady a position as science adviser with the Bush Administration except that some of the words are too big.

When I was 12 I wrote a paper proving that 7+9 equals 14. That would have gotten me a position as an Economics Adviser, but tragically my dog ate it.

Teutsch, you write as if Samuel Langhorne Clemens has had an influence on U.................

Makes me wonder how much ozone is being burned up by space missions . Somethings to ponder; Wonder how many hungry children and elderly the money from just one mission could feed.

Wonder how many gallons of water are thrown out in those little plastic bottles that do not dissentegrate into the earth. What if for every tree cut down , one had to be replanted.

Now in this computer age , why is there even more paper being put in my mailbox for me to shred?

Why do our schools start back during the hottest part of the summer, think of all the humming air-conditioners. The day after Labor Day until first week of June would work much better for energy savings,not to mention easier on families who have to scramble to find sitters for those odd weeks the kids are out in-between. Some things from the old days weren't so bad.

Scientist are telling us that the solar system is heating up. Mars is as hot as it has been since we started measuring. Man has nothing to do with it
