Funny you should say that! I've just come back from a political meeting on health reforms!

I see see EvilConservative has already done the "Aren't I incredulous", comedy!

FYI: Don't reply to this with some global warming is real link,

Well that would be confusing the poor fellow with real science!

.... ... but never mind. We do real science here on this site, so here are some links for those who have not seen them already. They are the sort of basic knowledge children should be taught and politicians should urgently learn.

  12. http://essayweb.net/history/ancient/prehistory.shtml - This link is mainly about history of human migrations but it does contain temperature graphs and explanations for a record of the past 5.5 million years of Earth's climate. The past half million years show three major glaciations: the Mindel, Riss and Würm glacials.

That should do for a start, covering the evidence it is happening, and some technical industrial solutions for future power generation.
