Asian Pacific Post;12/21/2006, p16
The article offers the author's views on global warming. He points out that severe weather experienced in various parts of the world in 2006 have caused many people to believe that the extreme weather patterns are not anomalies in a normal cycle of weather. He notes that 2006 was the sixth warmest year on record, averaging 0.4 degrees Celsius above the 1961 to the 1990 average.
