And now let's go to Michael Crichton for the latest weather...

From CNN:

Now he's questioning global warming in his new thriller, "State of Fear,"
about eco-terrorists who plot a series of natural disasters -- earthquakes,
underwater landslides, a tsunami -- to prove that global warming is a threat to
humanity. A ragtag band of scientists and lawyers uncovers the scheme.

"State of Fear" sounds like a typical Crichton thriller, but this time he's
using the novel as a platform, tacking on a five-page message stating his notion
that the theory of global warming is speculative at best, and a 14-page
bibliography of works supporting his views.

That's all too bad about global warming being junk science. I was looking forward to it. In the words of Dennis Miller (scroll to the bottom), "I'm always a little chilly anyway"
