Global Warming Today: The 17,000

Don't you just love that meme, that "everyone believes in global warning (as caused by Mankind)," which of course refers to the fact feeling that every scientist backs man and CO2 causing it? But, is that really true? No (via The Anchoress)

This is the website that completely knocks the wind out of the enviro's sails. See over 17,000 scientists declare that global warming is a lie with no scientific basis whatsoever.

The global warming hypothesis has failed every relevant experimental test. It lives on only in the dreams of anti-technologists and population reduction advocates. The United States is very close to adopting an international agreement that would ration the use of energy and of technologies that depend upon coal, oil, and natural gas and some other organic compounds.

This treaty (Kyoto) is, in our opinion, based upon flawed ideas. Research data on climate change do not show that human use of hydrocarbons is harmful. To the contrary, there is good evidence that increased atmospheric carbon dioxide is eviromentally helpful.

The link above will take you to the paper Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide and a petition that will let you participate in this important project.

Hmm, that's a lot of scientists. I wonder if the GWACBM folks could post how many actual scientists are in their corner, as opposed to "every scientist believes it." And maybe, at some point, the global warming disciples can actually debate the issue, instead of treating those who do not follow their views as deniers comparable to those that do not believe in the Holocaust.

If your mind isn’t closed and you’ve got the time, there’s a great 52-minute lecture here that busts the globaloney wide open. The lecturer isn’t Mr. Excitement, but that’s not the point.

    The two “institutes” that sponsored this paper are as follows:
    1. Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine:
    this is an institution that consists of ONE faculty memeber- the founder, Arthur Robinson. In addition to opposing Global Warming, it also distributes home schooling materials for parents who are worried about the rampant spread of Socialism in public schools.

    2. George C. Marshall Institute is based on K-street in Washington DC smack dab in the middle of Lobbyist City, and is partially sponsored by Exxon Mobile.

    How about listening to what a consensus of independent scientists around the world have been saying? you know, the ones who are not completely nuts, don’t have conflicts of interest with the oil lobby, and work for respected national institutions all over the world?

    This is not to say that Global Warming is as dire as the apocalyptic predictions of Al Gore, but to dispute that its a real phenomenon which is human-caused is right up there with Intelligent Design. Only by accepting it’s reality and making small adjustments now can we avoid the possibility of huge problems for our kids and grandkids.

    If you would like to find out more about what overuse and overpopulation do to human civilizations, read Jared Diamond’s “Collapse” it states the case simply, non-partisanly (is that a word lol) and persuasively.

    17,000, does that override the two wino’s on the corner that gave Algore all of his information? Evidently not to a left winger. Alcoa must have downgraded the quality of aluminum foil.

    Encourage people to see the video “The Great Global Warming Swindle”.

    Here is an easy URL to remember to see the program. Pass it along to friends and family.

    In the UK we had a program called The Great Global Warming Swindle) aired last week on Channel 4 (see )

    On watching the “The Great Global Warming Swindle” I’ve tried to extract the main arguments. I thought that perhaps others may find this useful.

    The theory of man-made global warming does not stack up for the following reasons:

    1. The earth’s temperature started rising in the last century well before industrialisation started significantly after WW2 in 1945. From 1940 to 1975 global temperatures actually fell while CO2 emissions were going up significantly and there was significant academic concern over a coming “Ice Age”. This data contradicts a link between CO2 and global warming.

    2. CO2 makes up a tiny proportion of the atmosphere (about 0.45%) and less than 10 % is man-made and that is growing at 0.4% per year. The main producers of global CO2 is animal flatulence and rotting vegetation on both land and sea. More importantly, water vapor comprises 95% of greenhouse gases.

    3. Gore’s film “An Inconvenient Truth” main premise is that history shows that rising CO2 levels cause the world’s temperatures to rise, but paleoclimatologist Professor Ian Clark says this actually works in reverse. Professor Clark shows that ice core samples provide evidence that CO2 changes lag temperature changes by about 800 years. Rising CO2 is shown to be a natural product of rising earth temperatures. Higher global temperatures mean more energy to support life which enlarges forests and vegetation. This eventually increases the amount CO2 in the atmosphere from more rotting vegetation on both land and sea and animal flatulence . The ice core samples also show that there have been periods of CO2 concentrations much higher than the today. The polar ice caps naturally expand and contract and have previously been considerably smaller than they are now. Greenland has had many periods of no ice cover or tundra.

    4. Cosmic rays (thought to emanate from exploding stars) cause clouds to form, reducing the global temperature. However, if our Sun has increased solar activity (as it is at the moment), the solar wind blows away the cosmic rays reaching Earth which reduces cloud formation and heats up the Earth. Warmer air can hold more water vapor without forming clouds and the greenhouse effect from water vapor dwarfs the effect from CO2. This suggests that increased solar activity is responsible for global warming, not man’s creation of CO2. Scientists have been able to measure solar activity and the Earth’s temperature going back 500 million years and it is a perfect correlation.

    5. If the greenhouse gases were trapping more of the Sun’s reflected radiation (the greenhouse effect) we should see higher temperatures in the upper atmosphere where that heat is trapped. This has not happened and it is the Earth’s surface that is warming up from reduced cloud cover caused by the Sun’s activity. So the warming is taking place on the earth itself not a result of more heat being trapped in the atmosphere by greenhouse gases.

    The conclusion is that there is no evidence that man-made CO2 causes global warming.

    Patrick Moore, the ex-member and co-founder of Greenpeace highlighted that many former communist/socialist supporters moved into climate change activism following the collapse of the Berlin Wall as it fits their anti-capitalist agenda. Moore goes on to claim the climate change lobby’s efforts to reduce CO2 are killing Africans, who have to burn fires inside their home, causing cancer and lung damage. This is because their Governments are being pressured to use wind and solar panels that are not capable of supplying the continent with electricity, instead of exploiting their own coal and oil reserves to fuel power stations that could.

    Climate change and reducing CO2 emissions are a huge and powerful global industry and many careers and reputations are built on perpetuating the myth of man-made global warming. Academics who say global warming is natural and not man-made are being threatened and branded heretics by the “Global Warming” bandwagon. One scientist likened their treatment by climate change activists to “Holocaust Deniers” because the very credible theory they suggest could not possibly be true in the face of the activists publicly accepted propaganda over CO2 emissions.
