Would anyone like to come with me to this event? I am working on a brochure that takes an anti-alarmist perspective, but I'm not sure I can have it finished in time. If not, it would still be good to make a lot of contacts and set ourselves up to issue a real challenge down the road.

What do you mean "anti-alarmist perspective"?

You'll have to ask Dan.

His email is in the posting.

But, in a nutshell, whatever humans do is about 1/10th of 1/1,000,000 of a factor next to what the sun does.

Now it is global warming. Before it was global cooling. That big ball of fire in the sky burns hotter from time to time.

That's his thoughts, BTW.
