    I only caught a small sliver of your discussion that was apparently trying to discount climate change by citing to reported increases in Antarctic ice, which skeptics point to as running counter to global warming. Here's a link… which I think explains why this question of Antarctic ice is not the stake in the heart of the climate change argument that skeptics would like to suggest.

    As I said, I only heard a sliver of the show. But I hope you gave an opportunity for someone knowledgeable to respond to what would appear to have been misinformation on an important topic.

    For a more honest and unbiased look at this subject by a weather professional:

    A link to site run by Jeffrey Masters, Ph.D. in Meteorology from the University of Michigan ( His web site was rceently bought by the "Weather Channel "):

    There are other links on that page that lead to others discussing the subject.

    How can WGN keep Mike McConnell on the air. He displays, 90% of the time, that he is not very bright and this subject was just another chance for him to showcase of this sad fact.

      i thin Mike is a great asset to wgn and love the show. co2 which they claim is a green house gas, is only 1/10 of 1 % of what make up our air. People will belive any thing they here because they chose not to listen.

      You seem to be one of these people that think"if you don't agree with me you can't possibly be intelligent." I think Mike is smart even when I don't agree with him,which I usually do. Kepp up the good work Mike!

      "Displays 90% of the time that he is not very bright"? Just because you don't agree with him doesn't mean he's not bright. In fact I find him to be very bright and fair. It's people like his guest that make people think. I understand not liking his approach. I don't like Brandmeier but I don't automatically call him "not very bright". Your credibility disappears completely with comments like the one you made.

    Mike is a terrific radio host and a bright intellect with interest in a broad range of subjects. His approach is not hardline left or right, which of course annoys zealots on both sides. Being a zealot it uphill sledding when opposing facts seem to dispute firmly held beliefs.

    If WGN wants to cull the payroll, dump Brandmeier, who depends on seventh grade humor to fill his time slot.

    With everything from Spider-Man and Pirates of the Caribbean,
    to Toy Story and Cars, thhe personalised children’s books always prove popular.
    You must have crossed the Story bridge numerous times going over the River Brisbane and must have noticed people climbing over the mammoth

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    A few years ago, one of our local residents, Mac Vorce,
    who is also a bicycle enthusiast petitioned for the development of bicycle paths and trails.
    If I knew how to bake cookies, I would do that and send over a care package but Im much better at telling jokes so I go there and
    entertain, shake hands and thank the men and women who serve our
    country. These surgeries are a matter of personal preference, peer pressure from fellow entertainers and the need to maintain
    an unrealistic image that is associated with them.

    EPA and DHA are precursors to eicosanoids that reduce inflammation throughout

    the body and scientists know that some sort of inflammation is behind just about every

    health problem we have. Due to the number of natural and manmade contaminants currently in

    our oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams the fatty fish from which oil is obtained accumulate extremely high levels of

    toxins. Knowing all these things and especially

    how do fish oil supplements work will definitely work to your greater good.
