I think you made some very good suggestions. Regarding your point that I
need media outlets, I had a national press release issued 30 Oct 2003
which may have reached some international readers. I haven't tried to
recruit my own foot soldiers. I rely on other groups for that:
Environmental Defense (see forwarded message below), and the Union of
Concerned Scientists (2nd forwarded message below).

Subject: Minnesota Key in Global Warming Fight!
See forwarded message below for "Minnesota Key".
It is important for people in the Twin Cities and all of Minnesota to be
educated on this issue in order to act in the best interest of Minnesota
and the world. There are many places that people can find off the web
that provide information on global warming. Some places are better than
others and some are conveying fraudulent information.
I think the Environmental Defence can be trusted to provided accurate
If you would like up to date information on the science of global warming
from me you are welcome to send me a message at my personal email
npat1@... - I will try to help in providing what I have.
Most of the information I have is at:
The homepage for the discussion group at P&C has a graph showing Annual
Global Land Air Temperatures (GLT) from 1880 through 2003, and a trend
line based on 10 year (GLT) moving averages.
