Newfy, no matter how you feel about the topic, it's worth reading more about it and about skiing. I have a daughter who is in that field and doing her thesis on it. I find any book about skiing interesting. As someone in their 60's, I have no vested interest in who is right on this fight, I'll be dead. Doesn't mean I close my eyes to the discussion. Look at it this way, if we actually succeed in cooling things, there will be more skiing for your grand kids. Is that bad?
