On CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" recently, Jay Lehr, a senior fellow and science director at the Heartland Institute, was asked by the host what he considered the dominant influence on Earth's climate.
"Well, clearly, Lou, it is the sun," Lehr answered, adding that "if we go back in really recorded human history; in the 13th century, we were probably seven degrees Fahrenheit warmer than we are now."
Lehr considers global cooling to be the real threat, part of a natural pattern as we continue coming out of a period known as the Little Ice Age.
"If we go back to the Revolutionary War, 300 years ago," he said, "it was very, very cold. We've been warming out of that cold spell from the Revolutionary War period. And now we're back into a cooling cycle."
The Associated Press claims that the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since Bill Clinton's second inaugural. But after it was discovered that NASA's James Hansen, Gore's chief scientific ally, had been fudging the numbers, the agency was forced to correct its data.
The 10 warmest years turn out to be, in descending order: 1934, 1998, 1921, 2006, 1931, 1999, 1953, 1990, 1938 and 1939.
If there's a trend there, we don't see it. So is global warming man-made and an imminent danger? As the snow falls in Vegas, don't bet on it."

Better than that, Laura Bush has done so much to promote women's rights in the Middle East:Laura Bush was nominated for Texan of the Year. She deserved it.
Again, Laura Bush quietly worked very hard to promote women's rights in places where women do not have rights:
"In Africa, she met with Ghanan mothers involved in a nutritional program for underweight children. Later, she helped raise money for one woman who lost a child.
She and daughter Jenna also sat in a semi-circle with Zambian women who had tested positive for HIV and their caregivers.
She met there with young rape victims, one of whom was raising her siblings after her parents had died.
In Afghanistan, she traveled to a rural province to meet the nation's only female governor, walking arm-in-arm to show support.
Big brass would rarely visit such a poor province.
America's first lady did, meeting entrepreneurs, attending a school run by the U.S./Afghan Women's Council and visiting children who had been orphaned by the Taliban's savagery.
In Saudi Arabia, she met victims of breast cancer, a disease the kingdom considers taboo.
She met survivors secluded in a pink tent, where they gather privately to share experiences.
Her visit had a Betty Ford-like quality, encouraging women to get treatment for a disease they were ashamed to discuss.
A latter-day Betty Ford is, in fact, a good way to describe Mrs. Bush.
She's a traditional wife in a Republican family.
But she used her position to bring attention to difficult problems."
""The accounts don't square up," he said. "You have to act with realism and adjust the dreams to the true possibilities," said Castro, who officially replaced his ailing older brother Fidel Castro as president in February.

That truth is that Kennedy is not ready for the job and doesn't deserve it. Somebody who loves her should tell her.
"Where did your long hair go
Where is the girl I used to know
How could you lose that happy glow
Oh, caroline no
Who took that look away
I remember how you used to say
Youd never change,
but thats not true
Oh, caroline you
Break my heart I want to go and cry
Its so sad to watch a sweet thing die
Oh, caroline why
Could I ever find in you again
Things that made me love you so much then
Could we ever bring em back once they have gone
Oh, caroline no"
