Finally, more and more people are actually clueing into the facts and seeing that we have been in a cooling trend for the last ten years. There are a lot of things that influence our Climate and CO2 is a very minor component.
From Marc Morano writing at the Inhofe Environment & Public Works blog:
Gore’s (Really) Inconvenient Timing – ‘Consensus’ On Man-Made Global Warming Collapses in 2008
U.N. Warning of 10-Year 'Climate Tipping Point' Began in 1989
Former Vice-President Al Gore came to Washington on July 17, 2008, to deliver yet another speech warning of the “climate crisis.”
“The leading experts predict that we have less than 10 years to make dramatic changes in our global warming pollution lest we lose our ability to ever recover from this environmental crisis,” Gore stated. But the former Vice President, who has been warning of a 10-year “tipping point” for several years now, appears to be unaware that the United Nations already started the 10-year countdown — in 1989!
According to July 5, 1989, article in the Miami Herald, the then-director of the New York office of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Noel Brown, warned of a “10-year window of opportunity to solve” global warming. According to the 1989 article, “A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ‘eco-refugees,’ threatening political chaos.” (LINK) & (LINK)
While Gore repeats his standard stump speech promoting man-made climate fears, much of the international science community is now openly dissenting from human caused global warming fears.
What follows is a two-page list with excerpts and links of over 90 separate reports claiming that the present Global Warming hysteria is just that, that the arctic ice (and polar bears) are fine, that there was once a lot more CO2 than there is now, that water vapor is much more of a greenhouse gas than CO2, that the Sun is the major driver of our Climate, yadda, yadda, yadda…
The Goreacle needs to wake up and smell the cappuccino.
It just ain't happening.
The idea that humans. through their activity, could have a major effect on the climate of this planet is pure fucking hubris…Posted by DaveH at July 22, 2008 09:38 PM | TrackBack
