Our whole political process is so corrupted by money we are no better than a third world country. The only difference is we cut out the little guy and go straight to the top.
February 24, Global Warming: These two events will serve as a fine backdrop for the coming cavalcade of dire ecological predictions by Gore and his ilk. Their goal will be to saturate the all-too-sympathetic media outlets with apocalyptic hysterics about a man-made global disaster.
We have everything we need to save it, with the possible exception of political will. But political will is a renewable resource. To participate meaningfully, one must distinguish between fact and fiction — in addition to understanding the underlying political agendas. In the inimitable words of the late Sen.
For the record, most reputable scientists agree that we are in a period of gradual global warming about 0.
Most also agree that the level of CO2 in the atmosphere has increased in the last century, and there is a growing consensus that global warming is due, in part, to the greenhouse effect. However, there is no scientifically established correlation between global-warming trends and acceleration of the greenhouse effect due to human production of CO2—only broad speculation.
Although many politicians and their media shills insist that the primary cause of global warming is the burning of hydrocarbons here in the United States, that government regulation of man-made CO2 will curb this global warming, that our failure to limit CO2 output will have dire consequences, and that the costs of enacting these limitations far outweigh the potential consequences, there is no evidence supporting any of these assertions.
Atmospheric CO2 levels have increased from about parts per million five decades ago, to about ppm today, which is to say, there are major factors influencing the amount of CO2 levels in the atmosphere besides our burning of hydrocarbons.
Inhowever, this increase fell back to 1. Did human industrial output somehow increase 55 percent during those two years, and then decline by that amount in ? For the record, NOAA concluded that the fluctuation was caused by the natural processes that contribute and remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
This is because his thesis is based largely on convenient half-truths. For instance, Gore insists that the increased incidence of hurricanes, tornadoes, drought and other weather phenomena is the direct result of global warming.
William Gray takes exception: Nearly all of my colleagues who have been around 40 or 50 years are skeptical… about this global-warming thing.
But no one asks us. Gore notes the increasing temperatures and shrinking ice caps in the Northern Hemisphere but does not note the decreasing temperatures and increased sea ice in the Southern Hemisphere.
To treat all change as something to fear is bad enough; to do so in order to exploit that fear is much worse. Among the suspects are, of all things, the sun and its fellow stars. A venerable scientific journal, Proceedings of the Royal Society, published recent research done at the Danish National Space Center indicating that the impact of cosmic rays on the climate could be much greater than scientists estimated.
Nigel Calder provides another angle on this thesis: Solar physicists warn of possible global cooling, should the sun revert to the lazier mood it was in during the Little Ice Age years ago.
Climate history and related archeology give solid support to the solar hypothesis. That petition stated, in part: Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.
The Senate, however, passed a resolution rejecting approval of that treaty in an eye-popping show of bipartisanship. The vote wasand 56 of those senators are still in Congress.
