The Doubters of Global Warming

Doubt Global Warming

Does anyone remember the ozone hole or acid rain? Some have vague memories of what at the time were popular scares. These harbingers of death appeared on the scene with a roar, but soon exited with a whimper.

It seems that no matter what new “trendy crisis” that happens along, the media is more than willing to warn mankind of this new danger in order to generate several months, if not years of gratifying headlines. Scientist also glorify in the attention as they receive months of flattering publicity, scientific papers and financial rewards. While the media and scientist delight in this adulation, the public finds itself in the awkward position of having to endure the anxiety of impending doom.

The most durable in the trendy crisis phenomenon is the manufactured dangers of global warming. Since the Earth’s climate is always in flux, the scaremongers seize the opportunity to convince otherwise reasonable people that man is responsible for global warming.

The sewage of all newspapers, the New York Times wrote. “… the consequences could be disastrous: further melting at the poles, sea levels rising high enough to submerge island nations, the elimination of one-quarter or more of the world’s species, widespread famine in places like Africa, more violent hurricanes.” What’s more, there is no time to waste: “… the world must stabilize the emission of greenhouse gases by 2015, begin to reduce them shortly thereafter and largely free itself of carbon-emitting technologies by mid-century.’

The NYT offered support in a report from the International Panel of Climate Change. They claim that this group of 2500 is the world’s most authoritative voice on global warming. However, 19,000 scientists have established that the IPCC’s view or opinion is in question. They have signed a petition saying global warming is probably natural and not a crisis. This list is available at www.oism.org/pproject.

We know the scientists and media’s stake in the game. Why are the global warming scaremongers so interested in forcing up the price of energy and lowering the emissions levels? The US relies on fossil fuels for 85% of its energy. Coal provides half of the electricity. Why is it necessary to cripple if not collapse the economy to meet some imaginary target emissions level. Perhaps the target is not so much an environmental goal as what is necessary for total economic collapse.

Fortunately, there are members of the scientific community who are stepping forward and speaking out against those that insist on spreading deceit. If the scientist of truth continue to speak out then we can also expect global warming to disappear into history with a whimper.

  1. Hi LC,

    I also remember the world overpopulation and new ice age scares. Dang, but I’m getting old!

    As to the IPCC and their reports, one has to keep in mind that there are actually only a few dozen people involved in writing those reports. The numbers indicating that thousands of scientists are involved only come from counting the authors of papers that they quote. This is much like saying that all of the news papers I’ve quoted on my blog agree with me in my theory that Hillary Clinton is the antiChrist.

    It’s also interesting to note that 2007, using the same data sources that the Global Warming fanatics base their claims on, was cold enough to wipe the previous 100 year claim of warming out. While this is going to put a serious hurt on the plans of the Global Warming Alarmists, it also has the unfortunate side effect of potentially placing Al Gore back on the political stage. Cursed are we with interesting times.

  2. Hi Grit

    The environmentalist have been responsible for creating fear in order to give traction to their political agendas. With all the failed promises of global destruction it would seem people would recognize the playbook by now.

    You make a good point. A few voices are amplified in order to give the impression more are on board. Kinda reminds me of the way news is delivered. One person complains about something and the next thing you know there is the inference half the world also disagrees.

    Interesting times indeed.

  3. The problem with the hole in the ozone was solved in large part because of the Montreal Protocol; the problem with acid rain was solved once we started enforcing the Clean Air Act.

    Maybe we can hope the same thing will happen with a new Kyoto and global warming.

  4. Hi BN

    I would be surprised if any government legislation or protocol played a part in these so-called problems being solved. However to be fair if you know of any documentation that substantiates this claim then please feel free to share.

  5. Hi BN,

    As it turned out, neither of the two problems you mention turned out to be real. The basis for the acid rain claims, high acidity in north-eastern lakes, was proved, eventually, to be a natural phenomenon. The Antarctic ozone hole turned out to be the product of local weather patterns having nothing to do with human activity. Thus, because of environmental activism that forced Government action before all the facts were known, we wasted several hundred billion dollars. Of course, that’s nothing compared to what preventing nonexistent Global Warming is going to cost.

    Hi LC,

    I just posted another mocking of Islamic Rage Boy that I think you will enjoy. Oh, you better practice up on your Time Warp steps before checking it out 🙂

  7. Hey, Grit,

    I’d have a much better time believing you if you provided some scientific evidence…

  8. Global Warming (the religion) is a tool to emasculate the U.S. by way of Marxist income redistribution. Even the founder of Greenpeace acknowledged that when the Berlin Wall feel all of the communists mad a mad dash for the environmental movement.

  9. Hi jp

    Well spotted. Environmentalism is the new home of today’s socialist crusade. The tactics have been updated, but the game is the same.
