The only verifiable fact about climate change is, the unlimited number of self-serving hypocrites the AGW Cult can produce. Now, if only Arnie and the cult would share with the rest of us, their non-CO2 producing sources of electricity, fuel and food, perhaps we could make them happy and usher in the next ice-age.
