Hmmm. Quite an interesting opinion you have of scientists. To bring this
back to rec.gardens, I suppose you believe that if gardeners in the arctic
want to grow palms out of doors, or if gardeners in the tropics want to grow
delphiniums as perennials, scientists will leap out of the woodwork to prove
that it can easily be done, just because there are people who desire those
results? Why don't we posit those two theories as "trial balloons" and see
how much "traction" they get?
I admit my opinion on scientists have become somewhat cynical over the past
few years over the global warming thing. I believe it is an environmental
agenda and the environmental movement has become less about environmnet and
more about power. They have their own indentured scientists to lend credence
to the theory. Former environmentalists have left the orgs because of it.
I also admit the topic got a little out of hand. Especially with the mixup
that Janet and I had about gas conversion.
As to trial balloons over what will grow where, knock yourself out. I'll
leave that to others.
"Agenda" has become the latest obscenity. People think the
director/producers of the movie "Brokeback Mountain" had an agenda. OK. The
owner of my favorite pizza place has an agenda. I have an agenda. You have
Indeed, after some efforts into researching whether there as _any_ support
in the scientific community for the 'imminent ice age', it turns out
that the answer is no: http://www.wmconnolley.org.uk/sci/iceage /
The 'imminent ice age' claim was strictly a construction, to the extent it
existed at all, of media outlets, the most quoted being a newsweek article
from 1975 -- year of a particularly cold winter.
If you peruse the young earth creationist sites, you'll find quite
a lot of climate change denial as well.

even with all the snow we STILL have on the ground (after about 2 weeks of
rain and warm weather)...if i COULD MAKE MY WAY to the Rosa rugosae, i WOULD
trim them---they're needing pruning very badly as our first snow came about
2 months earlier than expected....and i don't mean a light dusting on the
ground: i mean ONE FOOT of white stuff. i was able to make SNOW ANGELS for
