I can't believe it...

Newsweek/ posted an article I agree with (for personal/background info, I do not watch MSNBC for fear of my monitor being broken during a report on the Iraqi War via a high-speed, flying object). See it in all it's glory: Why so Gloomy?

What most commentators—and many scientists—seem to miss is that the only thing we can say with certainly about climate is that it changes. The earth is always warming or cooling by as much as a few tenths of a degree a year; periods of constant average temperatures are rare. Looking back on the earth's climate history, it's apparent that there's no such thing as an optimal temperature—a climate at which everything is just right. The current alarm rests on the false assumption not only that we live in a perfect world, temperaturewise, but also that our warming forecasts for the year 2040 are somehow more reliable than the weatherman's forecast for next week.
Read it and understand.
