Cost of Global Warming in Wine Country!

Global warming and greenhouse emissions
could become hugely expensive for California wineries if California lawmakers pass "The Global Warming Solutions Act"
The California Association of Winegrape Growers, the Wine Institute and the Family Winemakers of California have all expressed
their concerns about Assembly Bill 32
Meanwhile Michael Black of Backsberg Estate Cellars in South Africa is not waiting around for any legislation to be enacted in his neck of the woods (vineyards). Following a carefully planned "greening program" he is one step ahead in the battle against CO2. Smart marketing!

But are Carbon Dioxide and other greenhouse emissions really the culprit in this Global warming trend? A recently shown documentary on British TV, claims NOT! It even goes so far as calling it "The Global Warming Swindle" This film is just over an hour long but well worth watching. I would sure like some feedback after you have watched it. Think I'll just watch it again with a glass of sundrenched Rhone Valley wine.
(When I open my blog with Internet Explorer, an annoying rectangular outline shows up. This does not happen with Firefox. Any of you smart bloggers out there know what the problem might be? Sure would appreciate your help. THANKS)
