I think that warming is in great extent a political and commercial
campaign than a serious menace; like avian flu and earlier SARS which
is already almost fogrotten.
It is not proven at all that climatic variations are due human
activity; I'm working in the institute connected with Earth physics
and most scientists there don't take it seriously. I've read about the
researches that temperature on Mars follows the same trend as on
Earth, so solar activity is probably the biggest contribution into
In its history Earth had much colder and much wormer periods than now;
not only ice is melting but the water is vapouring, so climat can
became more wet and some dry area can became usable for agriculture.
Vapouring can also in some extent neutralize an increase of sea level.
Another point which is often forgotten is Archimed's law due which
melting of the nordic ice will not lift see level at all. Only
continental Antarctic ice will contribute.

I think it is also an exagerration.
Non-American news media gives milder picture.
