Cool, global cooling by bacteria. Of course notice the 'may' and
remember that global warming is about what causes the recent increase
in temperatures.

This is based on an inaccurate understanding of science. First of all
, notice how these models model quite accurately the observed data.

That the IPCC models do not take the sun into account or only in a
'gross manner' is quickly put to rest by actual fact

That circulation models include both the oceans as well as the
atmosphere could also be easily established.

Same for aerosols which are also included in GCM's

As I said, garbage in, garbage out. This description of the science of
global warming is no different. Just a quick perusal of the AR4 draft
documents would have shown that these 'critiques' remain unfounded.
Let's not confuse the hard work done by countless scientists with
these poorly supported and often erroneous claims.

In God's Name.
