For the last 20+ years I have been hearing about global warming. A few years before that I was told by scientists that the world was cooling. I don’t know what to believe, if anything.

A few days ago some emails have hit the net that clearly show certain scientists have been cooking the global warming books. That led me to a few thoughts.

First, during my entire life I have not noticed any change in the climate. The summers are hot, the winters are cold, and the autumns and springs are in between. The ocean is is exactly the same place as it’s always been, neither higher nor lower.

Second, the global warming alarmists are being funded by government money. In turn, governments are attempting to extract new taxes from the governed in response to the science being produced by the alarmists. There is an unholy  symbiotic relationship between the government and science.

Third, the governments of the world are using global warming to extend ever more control over the lives of their citizens. It is the nature of all governments to want to usurp every more power.

Fourth, I am sure the earth’s climate has changed in the past, even before man was around spewing toxic gases into the atmosphere. For example the desert middle east must have once been lush enough to produce enough vegetation to form vast pools of oil. Same with the Alaska tundra.

Fifth, Al Gore wrote an opinion piece a few days ago calling for “sustainable capitalism.” This is clearly an example of a rat realizing the global warming ship is sinking trying to find another “cause” to promote.

My conclusion is that global warming is a scam.
