25. This is not science
Edited on Tue Aug-01-06 07:21 PM by gristy
As we report today on pages 28 and 29, the Amazon now appears to be entering its second successive year of drought, raising the possibility that it could start dying next year.

What pages 28 and 29?? There is no link to further reading (not counting the useless 2 paragraphs at "URL" on top), no link to a peer-reviewed article, no book, NO NOTHING.

THE OP's headline "Global Warming rate may increase by 50% in the next two years" certainly does NOT follow from this part of the linked "article":The immense forest contains 90 billion tons of carbon, enough in itself to increase the rate of global warming by 50 per cent.

This "article" was posted at least one other time on DU got about the same reaction. Folks, this is not science.

Global warming is real and its impact may well be catastrophic over time. But put your thinking caps on and make an effort to separate the facts from hyperbole.
