In November 1990, the English and French Prime Ministers announced that we were in a race against time, to save our planet from 0.00035 mole fraction CO2.
Global temperatures are almost exactly the same as the were 25 years ago, before the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. There has been no global warming over the past 25 years. There is no race, there is no crisis. It is all complete, utter bullshit.
Barack Obama now says we are in a race against time to stop global warming.
