Global warming and cooling, according to our more down-to-earth earth-sciences scientists, seem to occur in 1,500-year cycles. People's lifespans - something like 35 years or so for century after century before capitalism came along and, much to the chagrin of lefty hollow-head Marxist anti-capitalists who still blindly deny it, extended the average life expectancy out to 70 or 80 years or so - were just too short for people grubbing in the ground for their grub in the form of grub worms to take much notice of these great climate shifts.
Today it seems that we are living in one of those 1,500-year transition periods. The last cold period, known to climatologists and historians (but not to the mass population of the Earth who refuse to read history) as the Little Ice Age, ended sometime around the year 1850. In Geologic Years, that was just a New York second ago. (03/26/08)

Global warming, fact or farce? - By: Sander Sassen - During the Easter holidays I often find myself at the dinner table with friends and family, discussing some of the current topics that are in the news. I always take pleasure in convincing relatives that whatever you hear on the news is often just one simplified version of someone else's truth, dumbed down and packed into whatever time slot was available for that particular news item. Global warming is a popular topic that is in the news often, and one I am particularly fond of discussing.
I always find it amusing to see a global warming advocate foaming at the mouth as they repeat the same story over and over again. Carbon dioxide is the big killer, the one cause for our imminent demise as a species and the planet as a whole. Never mind that there are greenhouse gases other than carbon dioxide, gases that are more potent by several magnitudes. Never mind that just about every living organism generates carbon dioxide and has been doing so for billions of years. Never mind that a forest fire, or a mild volcanic eruption, generates more carbon dioxide than we do as a species in a year. Never mind that we only have accurate worldwide temperature data for about the last 150 years at best. Never mind that the Earth's average temperature has fluctuated enormously throughout history with the first few billion years not even a car, or a fossil fuel burning energy plant, in sight.

Climate expert says new 'global warming' legislation will cripple poor - By Allie Martin - Dr. Roy Spencer, a scientist who has been studying climate change for the past two decades, says defenders of supposed "manmade global warming" are proposing policy changes and legislation that will put heavy burdens on the poorest of the poor.
A principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, Dr. Spencer directs a number of climate research projects. The expert in climate change says much of the hysteria over global warming is not based on scientific fact.
Spencer recently released a book titled Climate Confusion: How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians and Misguided Policies that Hurt the Poor. He believes advocates of manmade global warming favor reforms and legislation that will cripple the poor. "When you start punishing wealth, you're going to be reducing a generation of wealth by punishing the use of energy, [from] which all human activity is required. It's going to hurt the poor first," Spencer points out. (03/26/08)

Call to adapt to global warming - It would be cheaper and more effective for the world to adapt to global warming rather than fight it, scientists have said.
The scientists - including Mike Hulme, the founding director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of East Anglia - accept the scientific consensus on the causes and effects of climate change, but differ on what to do about it.
Their view, which has caused them to be labelled "the new pariahs of global warming", is that the world should work to reduce hunger, storm damage and disease, rather than spending trillions of pounds trying to stabilise carbon dioxide levels across the planet.
Roger Pielke Jr, an environmental policy expert at the University of Colorado at Boulder, told the journal Natural Hazards Review: "Everything has been put on the back of carbon dioxide, and carbon dioxide cannot carry that weight."
He continued: "I've been accused of taking money from Exxon or being a right-wing hack. I would characterise us as realists. Realists on what is politically possible." Original source: LA Times (03/26/08)

Link to Global Warming in Frogs Disappearance Is Challenged - By ANDREW C. REVKIN - In the scientific equivalent of the board game Clue, teams of biologists have been sifting spotty evidence and pointing to various culprits in the widespread vanishing of harlequin frogs.
The amphibians, of the genus Atelopus -- actually toads despite their common name -- once hopped in great numbers along stream banks on misty slopes from the Andes to Costa Rica. After 20 years of die-offs, they are listed as critically endangered by conservation groups and are mainly seen in zoos. (03/25/08)

Greenie Watch: Global cooling hits Britain - Britain is enduring its most miserable Easter for 25 years as Arctic winds sweep in, bringing snow, hail and sleet. Snow began falling in Scotland yesterday and was expected to move south over the next few days, with forecasters saying that a white Easter looked increasingly likely across much of the country.
People wrapped up warmly to take a stroll along the seven-mile promenade in Bournemouth, Dorset, as temperatures dropped to 7C. Last Easter thousands of people sunbathed on the sandy beach as temperatures topped 20C. Holidaymaker Andy Hemmings, 55, from St Albans, Herts, said: "The sun is out but the winds are very chilly. We are warming ourselves up with a hot chocolate." (03/25/08)

On the lighter side...
Lou's News: Global Warming Decimating Local Snowman Population - As the emission of greenhouse gasses increases and global climate continues to spiral upward, no demographic is taking it harder than the snowmen and snowwomen of our community.
Snowmen across the country are left defenseless against a rising global temperature as one by one, they slowly melt away and fade from existence.
A report put out by the Environmental Protection Agency shows that the life expectancy of the average snowman continues to decrease.
" A snowman used to be able to last in the average American backyard for the whole winter," one official said. "Now most of them can't even make it past Christmas." (03/25/08)

Warming crowd fears real debate - By Dick Little - ...record levels of ice in the Antarctic sea have been reported, along with record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, and Chili. "All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA's, GISS, UAH, and RSS) have released updated figures showing, 'over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously,'" Hadley scientists noted. (03/25/08)

CO2 Science: Global Warming and the Vascular Plant Species Richness of Individual Countries - "Based on data from the 1997 IUCN Red List of Threatened Plants (Walter and Gillett, 1998)," the authors calculated the number or richness of vascular plant species per unit area of land for 79 nations of the Northern Hemisphere with the goal of determining the effect of global-scale environmental change on the degree of variability in national plant species richness, particularly within the context of 20th-century global warming.

New Evidence Discredits Global Warming Dogma - Some call data on carbon dioxide a bombshell, but so far global warming advocates have been bombproof.
On national radio in Australia, Jennifer Marohasy, a biologist and senior fellow of Melbourne-based think tank the Institute of Public Affairs, dropped a bombshell on those who support global warming: While carbon dioxide levels have risen for the last 10 years, the Earth has cooled, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change knows it. Marohasy said,
The head of the ipcc (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has actually acknowledged it [that the Earth has cooled since 1998]. He talks about the apparent plateau in temperatures so far this century. So he recognizes that in this century, over the past eight years, temperatures have plateaued. … This is not what you’d expect, as I said, because if carbon dioxide is driving temperature then you’d expect that, given carbon dioxide levels have been continuing to increase, temperatures should be going up. (03/25/08)

Global warming still under dispute - To the editor: In regard to your editorial for having an Earth Day with the notion of shutting down power for an hour, the school board and your paper should be ashamed of themselves for fear mongering.
There is no basis in fact that global warming is caused by man. As a matter of fact, it has become a political issue espoused by the socialists around the world.
There are many scientists with an opposing view on global warming and as such should be given respect that it deserves. The Earth is not that fragile and the only calamity we have to fear is volcanic eruptions, asteroid onslaught and overpopulation. ~ Alex Fabricius, Oshawa (03/25/08)

Scientific Consensus on Climate Change? - By Klaus-Martin Schulte - FEAR of anthropogenic “global warming” can adversely affect patients’ well-being. Accordingly, the state of the scientific consensus about climate change was studied by a review of the 539 papers on “global climate change” found on the Web of Science database from January 2004 to mid-February 2007, updating research by Oreskes (2004), who had reported that between 1993 and 2003 none of 928 scientific papers on “global climate change” had rejected the consensus that more than half of the warming of the past 50 years was likely to have been anthropogenic. In the present review, 31 papers (6% of the sample) explicitly or implicitly reject the consensus. Though Oreskes said that 75% of the papers in her sample endorsed the consensus, fewer than half now endorse it. Only 6% do so explicitly. Only one paper refers to “catastrophic” climate change, but without offering evidence. There appears to be little evidence in the learned journals to justify the climate-change alarm that now harms patients. (03/24/08)

Higher Fuel Taxes Won't Help Anything - By JOHN HOOD - For thoughtful fiscal conservatives, taxing motor fuels and vehicles to pay for the roads they traverse is among the least-objectionable forms of taxation in American government.
These taxes solved our transportation system's main pricing problem — that most of our highways and streets have, as a practical matter, had to offer unlimited access and thus couldn't be tolled — by essentially tethering how much drivers pay to how much they drive.
On second thought, fiscal conservatives should still oppose any increase in the federal gas tax. Here's why:
There's nothing magical about "federal" funding of local roads. The money doesn't come flying in from some Neverland.
Instead, the system simply compels motorists to send gobs of money to Washington every time they fill up their tanks. (03/24/08)

Quote Of The Day

“We should begin to see cooling coming on. I’m willing to make a big financial bet on it. In 10 years, I expect the globe to be somewhat cooler than it is now, because this ocean effect will dominate over the human-induced CO2 effect and I believe the solar effect and the land-use effect. I think this is likely bigger.” Dr. William Gray, Colorado State University.

American media ignores inconvenient science on global warming - Jerome J. Schmitt - Americans apparently have to look to Australia for truthful accounts of climate research conducted by our own space agency. Christopher Pearson' March 22 article in THE AUSTRALIAN concerns an interview of "Jennifer Marohasy, a biologist and senior fellow of Melbourne-based think tank the Institute of Public Affairs." When asked about "Global Warming", Marohasy stated:
"...actually, there has been cooling, if you take 1998 as your point of reference. If you take 2002 as your point of reference, then temperatures have plateaued. This is certainly not what you'd expect if carbon dioxide is driving temperature because carbon dioxide levels have been increasing but temperatures have actually been coming down over the last 10 years.
"The head of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has actually acknowledged it."

You Must Get Roy Spencer's Book - Folks, you have to get a book. I mentioned this last week. Our official climatologist here, Roy W. Spencer, has written a book called Climate Confusion. I'm holding it right here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. It's How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians, and Misguided Policies That Hurt the Poor. Dr. Spencer, formerly of NASA, is now at the University of Alabama Huntsville. He's got a great little picture here on the cover. It's a picture of either the sun rising or setting over the Antarctic or Arctic, I'm not sure which, but it's as cold as it can be -- snow cover, ice everywhere -- and the sign says "Danger: Global Warming Ahead." But it's called Climate Confusion, and it's written by a scientist for laypeople to be easily understood. (03/24/08)

WS Radio: Global Warming debate - Listen live (QuickTime), Mondays, 4 - 6 p.m. EST - "Political Animals"--the flagship radio show of Western Standard radio--is a weekly political talk show on 88.1 WBGUFM hosted by Jay Lafayette, Peter Jaworski, and Terrence Watson.
Today, our phone-in guest will be Dr. Roy Spencer, former climatologist for NASA and author of "Climate Confusion: How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians and Misguided Policies that Hurt the Poor."
To debate Roy in the studio, we have invited Dr. Todd Albert, an instructor in the Geography Department at Bowling Green State University. According to his BGSU page, "Dr. Albert is deeply concerned with global climate change and urges everyone to take a strong stance in reducing their own carbon emissions." (03/24/08)

Poland Has A White Easter Week After A Warm Winter - Warsaw, Poland - 24 March, 2008 In spite of predictions of global warming, snow continues to fall in Poland and is predicted to fall over the next few days.
Poland's weather this past winter stands out as an anomaly within an anomaly. Rather than experiencing the normal winter winds from the North, the winds came out of the West and carried warm, moist air from the Atlantic. The result was a warm winter while much of the rest of the world suffered under record cold temperatures.
Based on current data, global warming peaked about ten years ago. The climate change trend has been flat over most of that period. ( Climate facts to warm to) In the past year, however, global temperature dropped significantly. But Poland's winter was warmer than usual. ( Is Poland's Climate Change Counter To World Climate Change? ) And the answer as to why lies in the wind. (03/24/08)

Some Biofuels Cause Global Warming! What Does that Tell Us? - By Ethan G. - The word is now out: many biofuels, such as corn ethanol, actually cause global warming according to two studies published in Science in February. Why? Their production leads to clearing of wilderness to make way for agricultural land. Yet the vegetation cleared away helps fight global warming by sequestering carbon dioxide.
This report came as no surprise. Environmentalists such as Lester Brown had long warned that biofuels, particularly from corn, would do more harm than good (Earth Policy). In the United States corn is grown using oil and oil products, so the total energy produced is relatively small. Brazil extracts biofuel from sugar cane, which is far more efficient. Unfortunately growing extra sugar cane spurs the clearing of the Amazonian rain forest, an irreplaceable environmental treasure trove. (03/24/08)

Examination of global warming models urged in light of Argo data - By Jim Brown - A liberal media outlet has acknowledged that global warming may have "taken a breather."
National Public Radio reports instead of warming up over the past four or five years, oceans have actually been cooling slightly. According to NPR, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has been studying the ocean with a fleet of robotic instruments that can dive 3,000 feet down and measure ocean temperature. Since the "Argo" system was fully deployed in 2003, it has recorded no warming of the global oceans, but rather "slight cooling."
Marc Morano with the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee says the cooling trend runs contrary to the claims of people promoting manmade global warming fears. But NPR -- which he describes as "an entrenched, liberal, mainstream institution" -- would rather question NASA's data, showing no ocean warming, instead of questioning the models that are predicting catastrophic sea level rise due to supposed global warming, he notes.

'World News' Rips Scientist to Shreds for Being Global Warming 'Skeptic' - ABC pulls no punches in dismissing the work of physicist Fred Singer as 'fraudulent nonsense.' - By Jeff Poor - ABC’s harmlessly named “profile” segment March 23 was, in essence, an attempt to discredit and bury the individual profiled – not too surprising, however, because he is a scientist who refuses to support wildly hyped global warming predictions.
Reporter/anchor Dan Harris introduced Dr. Fred Singer as part of the “denial machine” and accused him of trying to create a “mirage of a scientific debate” in the face of “broad scientific understanding.” (03/24/08)

Global Warming Stuns Naysayers, Wins Best Supporting Actor Oscar - By: Bernie - Worldwide Exultation overcame environmentalists on Sunday when An Inconvenient Truth nabbed two Academy Award wins–one for Best Documentary and another for Best Supporting Actor.
Al Gore and director Davis Guggenheim both expressed great optimism for the future of environmentalism based on the film’s success. However, the most triumphant part of the story lies in its underdog upset for Best Supporting Actor. Global Warming, a five-time nominee, finally took a gold statuette though critics predicted that Alan Arkin would win. (03/24/08)

Meteorological Service: Don't blame global warming for water woes - By MEGAN JACOBS - Let's not be so quick to blame global warming," said duty forecaster Robert Olimsky of the Israel Meteorological Service. Though the IMS is predicting the current heat wave to continue through Wednesday morning, Olimsky stressed that this is just an extreme of what normally happens this time of year, saying that trends over decades, rather than a few days, are necessary to deduce that global warming is the cause of weather changes.
Despite the cold winter and the unusual amount of snow in Jerusalem this past winter, precipitation was "well below average" for the season by roughly 30%, according to the IMS. This year was the fifth winter to fall short of expected rainfall, for which the IMS does not have conclusive explanations. (03/24/08)

Global Warming: Who Said What -- and When - March 24, 2008; Page R2 - It turns out Al Gore was hardly the first one to sound the alarm. Looking back nearly three decades, you can find prominent people warning the public about the danger of rising temperatures. But there have also been a number of skeptics. Here's a selection of quotes on climate change. (03/24/08)

More trouble for the global warming movement - When I was in sixth grade, I specifically remember reading in my science book about global cooling and the coming Ice Age. Some things change and some others never do. One thing that changes on a regular basis is science. When I started medical school, I was told that more than half of what I was taught during medical school would be proved incorrect by the end of my career. This is not an anomaly for just medicine. You see it throughout all fields of study when you are dealing with inexact sciences. The study of weather is certainly not exempt from this. If you think the people that study weather really have a firm grasp on what is going on, just watch the weather report on the local news for a few weeks and you’ll change your mind.
One thing that never changes is the desire by some to control the masses through environmental nonsense. In our current day and age, one of the ways this is manifested in the hysteria of man-made global warming. We are told that we must cut down on greenhouse gas emissions by cutting energy consumption presumptively by eliminating fossil fuel use. We are told that we must embrace “green technology” and buy hybrid cars to save the earth. This global warming hysteria continues to reach magnitude proportions in our government and has already manifested itself in a bill that permanently bans the incandescent light bulb a few years from now (sorry Edison!). Congress is pondering passing a law mandating fuel emissions to reach somewhere around 50 miles per gallon on all cars manufactured in this country. If that isn’t the quickest way to destroy the auto industry in this country, I don’t know what is.
Global warming, or global “climate change” as some like to call it is actually far from a scientific consensus. Scientists that do not prescribe to global warming are ridiculed, ostracized, and silenced. The Weather Channel founder, John Coleman, called man-made global warming the greatest scam in history. Proponents of this global warming hysteria have a specific goal of politicizing the weather, because if you can politicize the weather, you can control everyone. There’s a tornado–it must be OUR fault for global warming. There’s a tsunami–global warming. There are wildfires across California–global warming. Hurricane–global warming... (03/23/08)

Perhaps the climate change models are wrong - Lorne Gunter, National Post - These 3,000 yellow sentinels --about the size and shape of a large fence post -- free-float the world's oceans, season in and season out, surfacing between 30 and 40 times a year, disgorging their findings, then submerging again for another fact-finding voyage. [...]
So why are some scientists now beginning to question the buoys' findings? Because in five years, the little blighters have failed to detect any global warming. They are not reinforcing the scientific orthodoxy of the day, namely that man is causing the planet to warm dangerously. They are not proving the predetermined conclusions of their human masters. Therefore they, and not their masters' hypotheses, must be wrong. (03/23/08)

ABC's Global Warming Hit Piece "Welcome to 'The Denial Machine'" - By Noel Sheppard - Climate alarmism reached a new low Sunday as ABC's "World News" featured a hit piece on Dr. S. Fred Singer, the esteemed Professor Emeritus of environmental science at the University of Virginia.
In a segment disgracefully entitled "Welcome to 'The Denial Machine,'" anchor Dan Harris disparaged Singer at every turn.
With a picture of Singer behind his right shoulder, under which was displayed the words "THE SKEPTIC," Harris began (video available here): (03/23/08)

Global warming scientists eagerly await first Nenana ice cracks - By Tony Allen-Mills in New York - It may not be the world’s most exciting spectator sport, but watching the ice melt in Alaska has become an unmissable rite of spring for two very different but related groups - gamblers and climatologists.
An annual contest to guess the exact moment the ice breaks on the River Tanana, 300 miles north of Anchorage, is attracting global interest, both as a chance to win a $300,000 (£151,000) prize and as one of the world’s most precise scientific indicators of the effects of global warming. (03/23/08)

Absurdity Of The Day

"If we all stopped reproducing tomorrow, in a hundred years Earth would be human-free, which may be the most environment friendly act. Sasha Bezzubov, Alarmist Shutterbug.

NewsBusters: Inconvenient Truth: Global Warming Ended Ten Years Ago - By James Murray - Despite the more hysterical predictions we've heard of late, the evidence continues to mount that if the earth was warming, it stopped quite some time ago.
Of course, don't expect this fact to be widely reported, if it indeed even makes it into any U.S. newspapers or television broadcasts.
Read the entire interview from The Australian, but a couple of admissions are quite striking... (03/22/08)

NewsBusters: Sci-Fi Classic Goes Green: Klaatu Returns to Warn Us About Global Warming - By Noel Sheppard - Hollywood is about to release a remake of the science fiction classic "The Day the Earth Stood Still."
This time, rather than coming to earth to warn us about our dangerous foray into the nuclear age, Klaatu and Gort have returned to caution us about -- wait for it -- global warming!
Honestly, you can't possibly make this stuff up! (03/22/08)

Letter: Don't fall for global warming hysteria - Chico Enterprise-Record - When it comes to choosing between Al Gore and Thomas Sowell, Robert Woods would choose the former whereas I would choose the latter. To me, that signifies the difference between uninformed hysteria and careful analysis.
More than 20,000 scientists and engineers have signed a notice that we do not agree with the doom and gloom projections of computer programs. In fact, we believe that an increase in carbon dioxide concentration and a rise in temperature would be beneficial to plant life and the environment as a whole.
The warm years of the Medieval Climate Optimum during 1100 AD was good for farmers whereas the Little Ice Age during 1700 AD caused the starvation of thousands of people because grain didn't ripen. Data show the sun is responsible for the temperature swings on earth and to try to counter it is not only futile, it would cost far more than California or the country can afford. ~ Lionel Brooks, Chico (03/22/08)

Lovelock Sounding the Absurdity Alarm
Lovelock: Paris A Desert, China 'Uninhabitable' By 2040 - Renowned British scientist James Lovelock says global warming prevention efforts are 'futile'; Predicts mass migration for mankind's survival. - By Jeff Poor , Business & Media Institute - ... According to Lovelock, several scenarios will play out by the time the magical year 2040 arrives. The Chinese will inhabit Africa, the Russians will migrate to Siberia and Americans will move into Canada. He told The Daily Mail he believes “white Americans” will adapt easily to these Armageddon circumstances.
"White Americans are descended from those who had the guts to cross on rough old ships and find a new life," Lovelock said. "They have the right spirit of can-do." (03/22/08)

Japan's nuclear body: Nuclear energy crucial in fighting global warming - TOKYO, March 21 (Xinhua) -- It is of vital importance to promote the exploitation of nuclear energy as the world is faced with huge challenges of climate change, said Japan's Atomic Energy Commission on Friday.
The Japanese government should strive to incorporate the promotion of atomic energy as an important pillar in the global framework to succeed the Kyoto Protocol, said the nuclear body in an annual report submitted to the cabinet. (03/21/08)

Global warming bill dealt blow - The Maryland Senate today severely weakened a bill designed to reduce global warming pollution in the state.
An amendment approved by a vote of 27-20 would require the Maryland Department of the Environment to jump through several more hoops before it imposes any rules to cut greenhouse gases. Every time the MDE wanted to limit the pollution through regulations, the agency would have to win another vote by the General Assembly. That's a difficult, multi-step process that could easily be derailed by industry lobbyists who oppose the limits, supporters of the bill argue. Good! (03/20/08)

From The JunkMan!
Junk Science: The Global Warming Bubble - By Steven Milloy - You didn’t have to be a rocket scientist in the 1990s to figure out that speculative investment in dot-coms with no revenues would be disastrous.
The same goes for lenders giving mortgages to borrowers with no jobs, no incomes and no assets.
So after surviving the tech bubble and while trying to extricate the economy from the housing bubble, why are we bent on heading into the global warming bubble?
Just this week the Environmental Protection Agency issued its economic analysis of the Lieberman-Warner global warming bill that is being considered by the Senate. The EPA projects that if the bill is enacted the size of our economy as measured by its gross domestic product would shrink by as much as $2.9 trillion by the year 2050. (03/20/08)

Global Warming: the Climate of Fear - By Alexander Cockburn - Although the world's climate is on a warming trend, there is zero evidence that the rise in carbon dioxide levels has anthropogenic origins. For daring to say this I have been treated as if I have committed intellectual blasphemy. (03/18/08)

Is global warming simply a man-made hoax? - By James R. Brigham - Recent headlines in The Island Packet ("Oil Prices Stalling Economy Fixes") and the Wall Street Journal ("Markets on Tear: Wheat, Oil, Euro") highlight serious problems this country and the world are facing.
The problem is we are in short supply of oil, natural gas, coal, corn and wheat - all needed for economic growth. (03/18/08)

Taxation is hysterical response to global warming - The impulse to tax the hell out of everyone in a fantastical attempt to limit carbon emissions to safe levels is do-gooder insanity.
As we are hysterical together, so we will be unfairly taxed together.
We had to learn that when a mass movement arose not against a foreign enemy, but against ourselves and our way of life.
Somehow the guilt Gorgon, that had for centuries been kept restrained in psychiatric hospitals, has sneaked into the secular conscience, its cells dividing like evil yeast that dots the synapses across which the impulses of reason and skepticism once spryly jumped. (03/18/08)

CO2 Science: Peatland Carbon and Global Warming - ...there would appear to be little real-world support for the climate-alarmist claim that in response to future global warming, "peatlands may become a net source of greenhouse gases which will accelerate warming of the atmosphere." (03/18/08)

It's the great global warming swindle - The EU has decided to cut emissions of greenhouse gases by 20pc by 2020.
And clearly Mother Earth in anticipation of this great sacrifice has decided to celebrate. For, according to NASA, global average temperatures are much lower this year than last.
I wish I was convinced that this drastic reduction would make a blind bit of difference.
I have a PhD in Chemical Engineering and Mensa-level IQ but cannot find any clear evidence within reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or other data that this is an appropriate action.
I recently complained about a lack of balance in an episode of 'Eco Eye' on the subject of global warming and RTE responded that in a programme about evolution they would not see the need to include a spokesman for creationism. However, there is much more convincing evidence about evolution than greenhouse gases causing global warming.
I have read a convincing paper that doubling the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere will increase atmospheric temperatures by just 0.01C.
Not enough to have any major effect and much less than the 0.6C warming seen in Earth's temperatures over the last century.
And CO2 levels more than 10 times higher than they are now failed to prevent a major ice age that wiped out most live on Earth at the end of the Ordovician period 445 million years ago.
In July, tax on bigger cars will become €2,000 per year and no doubt we can expect more of the same over the next few years with our rulers exploiting the great global warming swindle to tax the bejesus out of us. ~ ULICK STAFFORD PHD (03/18/08)

Japaneese Absurdity
Japan baseball looking to fight global warming with shorter games - TOKYO -- Japanese baseball is going green.
As part of the fight against global warming, Japanese professional baseball has come up with a plan to shorten its games and reduce carbon dioxide emissions at stadiums.
Teams will aim to cut playing time by six per cent, or 12 minutes, from the average of three hours and 18 minutes per game, Japan pro baseball officials said Tuesday.
Under the plan, teams will be required to spend no more than two minutes and 15 seconds when they change from fielding to batting.
Pitchers will be asked to throw within 15 seconds of receiving the ball from the catcher when no runners are on base. (03/18/08)

Global warming is just an excuse - By JR Dieckmann JR Dieckmann - Motivation behind global warming activism has never been about concern for the planet or life on Earth. Aside from using the evidence of a one degree rise in global temperatures over the past 100 years to promote global socialism (which was nothing more than recovery from a one degree drop in temperature over the previous century), there is another angle that should be considered, and if it's the real reason for high gas prices today. (03/17/08)

NASA Chief: Global Warming Treated Like a Religion - By: Philip V. Brennan - The theory of human-caused global warming is being treated as religious dogma, NASA's administrator said.
In an interview with SciGuy blogger Eric Berger, NASA Administrator Michael Griffin who last May questioned whether addressing the alleged global warming problem required all that much urgency, warned that dissent from the global warming theory is almost treated as heresy. (03/17/08)

Global Warming Politics - By Michael R. Fox Ph.D - "The greatest challenge facing mankind is the challenge of distinguishing reality from fantasy, truth from propaganda. Perceiving the truth has always been a challenge to mankind, but in the information age (or as I think of it, the disinformation age) it takes on a special urgency and importance." - Michael Crichton, Science writer and author 'State of Fear'.
The current furor over human-caused anthropogenic (AGW) global warming is a manifestation of environmental agendas that have continued for forty years. As has happened in the past, this has been aggravated by surprising low levels of science, mathematics, and energy literacy in the U.S. A retired school teacher commented to me after a speech on energy issues said, "Well I don't think we really have any electrical supply problems. If I need more electricity I'll just install more outlets." An uninformed public is very vulnerable to the threats of gloom and doom some common over the past 40 years of environmentalism.

There's no global warming crisis - We had record low temperatures in 2007 being set all over the world. The global warming types hold their meeting in Africa - wouldn't do to hold it where it's snowing.
Al Gore refuses to debate scientists who say there isn't global warming. The British won't allow his film, An Inconvenient Truth, in schools unless it is known as "political commentary."
The 1940s had a year that was the hottest on record; hotter than any recorded recently. In the 1970s, they warn us about "global cooling." What a sham. ~ George MacMillan (03/07/08)
