I have blogged often on the global warming hoax. You see I recognized it for what it was immediately. These same leftists tried the same stunt in the 70s, claiming that we were all going to die in a new ice age unless we pay more taxes. It was absurd then, and it is just as absurd now. And the fact that my elementary school took a week to scare the crap out of me and my peers, left a bitter taste in my mouth for decades.
I am not a scientist, but I am a rational person who believes in a loving Creator. God created this planet and all the remarkable interrelated forces that govern things like weather. It would be virtually impossible, even if man put all his efforts into it, to destroy this planet. He is a very small organism living on a massively large globe. Take a plane ride across America or over the pond, and you will better understand how big this planet really is.
But even if you reject a divine presence, if you take a step back, you will quickly realize how insignificant the role of man has, compared to global and cosmic sources on the planet. The fact that these so-called "global warming" scientists refuse to even consider the sun, earth's core (Al Gore claimed it is a million degrees down there), gravity, cosmic radiation and a hundred other factors in climate change, shows their unwillingness to uncover the truth.
For almost two decades we have had the "global warming" hysteria jammed down our throats. Big Al Gore has forced schools to watch his laughable propaganda film and produced numerous books promoting this hoax. His motivation is quite simply to profit off of the hoax both directly and indirectly, investing in "green" trading and companies.
For the scientists and politicians that have continued this nonsense, its both financial and political. This was an easy way to force otherwise free countries into a more socialized world order. Bring on climate guilt and regulate and tax them into submission. The plan was working pretty well until certain people started asking tough questions.
But now the jig is finally up. Someone gained access to hundreds of emails and documents that detail the fraud and manipulation of science. But I'll let Christopher Monckton, one of the heroes of the so-called denier movement take it from here:
The tiny, close-knit clique of climate scientists who invented and now drive the “global warming” fraud — for fraud is what we now know it to be — tampered with temperature data so assiduously that, on the recent admission of one of them, land temperatures since 1980 have risen twice as fast as ocean temperatures. One of the thousands of emails recently circulated by a whistleblower at the University of East Anglia, where one of the world’s four global-temperature datasets is compiled, reveals that data were altered so as to prevent a recent decline in temperature from showing in the record. In fact, there has been no statistically significant “global warming” for 15 years — and there has been rapid and significant cooling for nine years.
Worse, these arrogant fraudsters — for fraudsters are what we now know them to be — have refused, for years and years and years, to reveal their data and their computer program listings. Now we know why: As a revealing 15,000-line document from the computer division at the Climate Research Unit shows, the programs and data are a hopeless, tangled mess. In effect, the global temperature trends have simply been made up. Unfortunately, the British researchers have been acting closely in league with their U.S. counterparts who compile the other terrestrial temperature dataset — the GISS/NCDC dataset. That dataset too contains numerous biases intended artificially to inflate the natural warming of the 20th century.

I have never, and will never deny that the climate of the earth does change. I will absolutely fight the concept that CO2 is a pollutant, or in any way causes global warming. Just the opposite, CO2 increases in the atmosphere FOLLOW periods of higher temperatures since the majority of CO2 is in the oceans and released as they evaporate. CO2 is never the driver.
We have gone through ice ages and significant warm periods as well. We seem to be in a cooling phase at present. In the not too distant past, they grew grapes in England and the Norse settled a place called GREENLAND that ain't so green anymore. During those times there were no SUVs and no industrial output of any significance. The changes in global climate are completely natural and cyclical. And in some cases, can be quite beneficial to mankind.
Nevertheless, and even with mounting evidence of a substantial fraud and bad science, world leaders are gathering next month in Copenhagen to yet again force some global warming hoax-inspired wealth distribution on the Western world. This is also what is behind the very bad legislation called Cap & Trade (Cap & Tax). Both will substantially cripple our economy, as we have already seen in Europe among nations that have embraced this nonsense. And the funny part, cutting CO2 emissions will do nothing to change the climate.
Now that we have put to bed this non issue, maybe we can focus on some more important things like winning the war against terrorism and reducing taxes so our economy will get out of the crapper.
