Since before I was born in 1979, all of the global warming doomsayers were predicting that we would be well on our way to no polar caps by now. New York City and Los Angelos would be flooded. After all the environmental Chicken Littles' dire warnings of melting polar ice has been shoved down our throats for decades, a recent report by Daily Tech Online has found out that the difference in the ice levels between 1979 and today is zero. The ice levels are the same today as they were on the day I was born almost 30 years ago.
The inconvenient truth for the left and Al Gore is that they seem to may have been duped, or they have duped all of us. Gore got rich by scaring people about global warming while flying in his private jet and spraying "greenhouse gases" all over the world to deposit all of the money from the book sales and speaking engagements in the bank laughing all the way. The global warming racket is highly profitable one. People get billions of dollars from the government and private donations to combat this possibly fictitious threat.
This has been a bad year for global warming alarmists. Last winter, there was more snowfall recorded in the US and Canada since 1966. This winter looks like it might be even worse with already brutal winter weather in the Northeast and Northwest. Even places that hardly ever sees snow got it in record amounts. Las Vegas, Houston, and New Orleans all received an unusual snowstorm last month. An annual dog sled race in Minnesota has been canceled this year for too much snow for the first time ever.
In fact, the coldest decade last century wasn't the 90's like most alarmists would like you to believe. It was the 30's. Records of the weather have only been kept since the late 1800's, but other evidence exists that deals another big blow to their beliefs. Medieval times is suggested to have been even hotter than the 90's based on evidence from all around the world. That's one question that scientists can't answer. How can it be hotter in a time without any man-made "greenhouse
" gases than now with all of that man-made gases in the atmosphere?
“If we go back really, in recorded human history, in the 13th Century, we were probably 7 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than we are now and it was a very prosperous time for mankind,” Dr. Jay Lehr, an expert on environmental policy, said. “If we go back to the Revolutionary War 300 years ago, it was very, very cold. We’ve been warming out of that cold spell from the Revolutionary War period and now we’re back into a cooling cycle.”
Weather is all about cycles. The day is warmer than nights. The summer is cooler than the winter. Those cycles are irrefutable. What if there is a bigger weather pattern that has not been realized yet because accurate weather records don't go back far enough? Could it be that every 200-300 years or so it alternates between hotter than cooler temperatures? Why is it impossible to the global warming faithful to admit that it is at least possible?
"Greenhouse gases" definitely has an affect on a local environment, but there isn't enough to believe that there is as any global warming effect caused by man.
The scientists have been trying to explain something that they didn't have enough imperical evidence to prove in the first place. Many scientists have forgotten that the role of a scientist is to constantly question everything. Unfortunately, they are too stuck in their own self-importance to admit that they might possibly be wrong.
Global-warming has become a religion. Al Gore has become their pope, and the scientists are their cardinals. The rest of the left-wing media and Hollywood are the preachers and missionaries that go around the world spreading warnings of the dangers of CO2 gases lest we create a hell on earth. Like the Holy Roman Empire, they excommunicate those who disagree with them and call them heretics. Only today, they do it first by publicly humiliating them with bad press, and if the heresy didn't stop, it might be a loss of a job.
However, more scientists than ever before have started to publicly criticize the theory of global warming. CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers recently said that it was arrogant for us to think that we can change the weather globally.
“You know, to think that we could affect weather all that much is pretty arrogant,” Myers said. “Mother Nature is so big, the world is so big, the oceans are so big – I think we’re going to die from a lack of fresh water or we’re going to die from ocean acidification before we die from global warming, for sure.”
“The last 10 years have been quite cool,” Lehr continued. “And right now, I think we’re going into cooling rather than warming and that should be a much greater concern for humankind. But, all we can do is adapt. It is the sun that does it, not man.”
It is almost a common occurrence for me to see a conference on global warming being accompanied by record low temperatures at wherever the conference is being held, and they still act like the world is going to burn up, if we don't act now.
It is becoming almost comical, now.
I'm not saying that global warming doesn't exist without any doubt. It is just that global warming hasn't been proven beyond all doubt either. We should treat this theory as such, a theory not fact. As I have said before, we should be environmentally conscience, but not to the point were we are blind to the facts and the possibility that we are wrong. It doesn't matter that most scientists claim that it is fact. In medieval times, scientists swore that the earth was flat and the sun went around the earth. We all know how well those "facts" worked out.
