On global warming from a sceptical chemist

I got into a very interesting and controversial conversation while on a trip to Chicago with a jaunt to Green Bay last week.

The topic of global warming came up from someone who believes it is happening and that something must be done about it. I made a little remark about how I was still somewhat sceptical of the whole global warming argument. And the reaction was surprisal, especially me being a scientist and everything. They went on to talk about how scientist views are being put down or hushed by Washington government. That in itself is very alarming and really requires its own post.

It gets real messy when politics get mixed in with science. You really don't know whose views are swayed by whatever. Really, what I think the problem is, I can't find information on the subject that I don't feel has been politically influenced. What I have read is mostly from science articles on the web that are conflicting. That is how it appears to me, is that scientist actually don't agree on global warming.

Instead of commenting about how I know nothing about global warming (I admit, I'm not an expert), please give me a link to some scientific literature about global warming that you believe to be the truth. I mean the facts, some evidence, you know, experimentation. I'll take a sceptical look at computer models.

By the way, I noticed I made an appearance on the Mass Spectrometry Blog.
An interesting blog by a fellow mass spectrometerist.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
