As long as we're off-topic, I recommend the article "How Did Humans First
Alter global Climate?" by William F. Ruddiman, in the March 2005 issue of
Scientific American. Hard data, impeccable credentials, and strong
correlation w/ observations made in other fields. In short, several lines
of evidence pointing to the same conclusions, without the bias introduced by
predictive computer models.
