Leave the Engine Running

Cutting down on fossil fuel pollution could accelerate global warming and help turn parts of Europe into desert by 2100, according to research to be aired on British television on Thursday. "Global Dimming," a BBC Horizon documentary, will describe research suggesting fossil fuel by-products like sulfur dioxide particles reflect the sun's rays, "dimming" temperatures and almost canceling out the greenhouse effect.

This is actually old news to people who have been following the global warming debate.

But unwelcome news to the folks who want us to don the hairshirt of Kyoto. Of course, so are climate cycles and Dickens' description of an English winter...snow and all that.

Makes Bush look sorta smart though. Not quite buying the science behind global warming.

Of course "global dimming" is just a theory and remains to be tested.
