Al Gore, Global Warming
I noticed the country is in the grip of a large heat wave. Temperatures over 110 are not uncommon and highs of 90+ are almost the norm. It seems to me that in years past these high temperatures would have been blamed on man made global warming.
News casters would breathlessly report the weather and show alarm at the new highs caused by man made global warming. They would almost be exopecting the entire earth to burst intob flames.
Experts would be called on to explain the relationship between the unusual temperatures and man made global warming. There might even be a feature on the phenomenon with wide eyed reporters explaining how the average person could reduce his carbon foot print.
Al Gore might even crawl out from under his rock to condescendingly explain why we are all living wrong. Then he would get into his private jet to fly to another interview.
But none of that is happening now. The extremely high temperatures are reported, then the weather goes on to the next story. Occasionally there might be a link between the heat and a forest fire, but never a link between the highs and el nino.

Al Gore, Doomsday, Global Warming, News of the Day
end of the world, fenner, over population
Since the beginning of time end-of-the-world beliefs have been kicking around. Most were based on apocalyptic religious beliefs aimed at getting people to embrace so religious sect or another. Others are based on scientific observations and studies.
One of the reasons given for colonizing the New World in the 1600s was that Europe was over populated and was running out of everything.
In recent years we have heard the world will run out of food, water, and other necessary natural resources. We have been told a hole in the ozone layer is destined to cause everyone to go blind or contract skin cancer. Our food is unsafe to eat. Our air is unsafe to breath. Our water is full of poisons. And on and on…
Al Gore and his anti-capitalist cronies tell us we are on the verge of baking ourselves to death.
Yesterday I read that Australian Professor Frank Fenner has predicted the human race will go extinct in the next 100 years due to over population. Not one of the articles I read about his prediction questioned the premise.
If, for example, the world can sustain 6 billion people but can not sustain 7 billion and the population rises to that level, why can’t it go back to sustaining the 6 billion after the excess 1 billion dies off.
Somehow none of these doom and gloom scenarios ever come to pass. The world continues to spin and in general, the human race seems to thrive and advance on most fronts. Humans are living longer, healthier, wealthier, and more productive lives with each passing generation.
Why do we give and credence to these world is coming to an end scenarios that are advanced by nut jobs? Is there something in the human psyche that enjoys, or even requires, this tripe?

Al Gore, Global Warming, News of the Day
Al Gore emerged from hibernation today with an editorial in the New York Times.
Basically he said that while there might be a lot of bad, careless, and even dishonest science in the climate change scam, it doesn’t mean man-made global warming is not happening. It’s the old Dan Rather defense of his bogus Bush story. The documents he based the story about Bush’s National Guard service were fake, but that doesn’t mean the story is untrue.
Thanks Al. I needed a nice laugh this morning.

Al Gore, Global Warming, News of the Day
CRU, delingpole, East Anglia, muir russell, phil jones, scam
From today’s MailOnline (UK):
“Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.”

In case you don’t know, Jones is the former head of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit. He and his corrupt data are at the center of the man-made global warming scam.
See my thoughts on the subject in my post entitled “Solid Evidence of Climate Change.”
Another part of the scandal is why has the relic media in the US not done any research or investigation of the man-made climate change scam? The relic media is firmly on the side of Al Gore and the other hysterical alarmists. They accept everything said about global warming as fact. The relic media in the US is a disgrace. Like Phil Jones, they should resign. But unlike the somewhat honorable Jones, they will not.
In an unrelated article in today’s TimesOnline (UK), it is disclosed that many of the temperature measuring stations have been compromised. The data collected from them shows warming, but it is so corrupted that it is worthless. The stations have been influenced by urbanization, land use changes and having actually been moved. What a joke.
And James Delingpole, writing in the Telegraph (UK) points out the dishonesty in Sir Muir Russell’s official whitewash – sorry “independent inquiry” into the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) scandal. Delinpole notes that several members of the panel have vested interests in maintaining the scam. Others have histories of advocating for man-made global warming.
And once again, it is the British press that has done the work while the US relic media sits on its hands.

Al Gore, climate, correct living, Global Warming, junk science, scam
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.
