Two times within the last 100 years, there have been periods of Global Cooling. During the first time in the 1970s, Newsweek noticed the cooling period and put an alarmist article on their cover about the earth temperature plunging. The UK Daily Telegraph reports that “There IS a problem with global warming… it stopped in 1998″. That’s right Global temperatures have dropped since 1998 even though we have more factories and people than ever. Some cities like Seattle have had a noticeable increase in winter snowfall in recent years. It’s hard not to notice iced-up roads since a normal winter in Seattle won’t have any.
The Global Warming Theory claims that man-made pollution is causing a significant increase in CO2 in the upper atmosphere which is causing the earth’s temperature to climb. This theory assumes that the sun is not significantly varying its heat output. Well, the two periods of Global Cooling in the 1970s and over the last eleven years are proof that the sun can easily overwhelm the effect of pollution that man puts out, even with the earth’s population nearing seven billion people.
Some of the Global Warming crowd have tried to substitute “Global Climate Change” for Global Warming, but few intelligent people take that seriously. Alex Jones recently caught Al Gore photo-shopping several hurricanes from years ago in an implicitly recent picture of the world.
Al Gore’s little bit of trickery however has been overshadowed by a hacker, who obtained some internal e-mails from so-called Global Warming researchers, who privately discuss whether they should hide certain information from the public.
A Fox News article reports “Hackers broke into the servers at a prominent British climate research center and leaked years worth of e-mail messages onto the Web, including one with a mysterious reference to a plan to “hide the decline,” apparently in temperatures. The Internet is abuzz about the leaked data from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (commonly called Hadley CRU), which has acknowledged the theft of 61MB of confidential data. Climate change skeptics describe the leaked data as a ’smoking gun,’ evidence of collusion among climatologists and manipulation of data to support the widely held view that climate change is caused by the actions of mankind. The files were reportedly released on a Russian file-serve by an anonymous poster calling himself ‘FOIA.’ …TGIF Edition asked Jones about the controversial ‘hide the decline’ comment from an e-mail he wrote in 1999. He told the magazine that there was no intention to mislead, but he had ‘no idea’ what he meant by those words. The Telegraph has posted some of the more scathing excerpts from these emails, which the newspaper suggests points to manipulation of evidence and private doubts about the reality of global warming…”
One of the co-founders of the Weather Channel, John Coleman has recently given an interview:
in which he announces a lawsuit against Al Gore challenging Global Warming on behalf of 30,000 scientists including 9,000 PhD’s. Coleman mentions that his attempts to arrange a debate on Global Warming have been turned down and only Fox News has given any coverage to the massive opposition to Global Warming by real scientists as opposed to a Divinity School drop out.
The Global Warming movement was a hoax from Day One. Leftist professors were hoping that the earth’s temperature would keep climbing and they could use public hysteria to vacuum up billions in grant money to study it. Democrats were hoping they could use Global Warming to introduce punishing legislation that would boost taxes on big corporations. The truth is that the energy output from the sun goes through natural cycles and man-made pollution is still insignificant compared to changes caused by the sun.
