CNSNews.com – Senators Debate Global Warming Policy Despite Global Cooling Evidence

global-warming-cavemenMaybe I am not as crazy as some people thought…. well, at least not about my views on global warming.

For the record,  I want to decrease the burning of fossil fuels but because of air quality and acid rain, not global warming.

What I dislike is manipulation by using scare tactics upon me and the rest of the country, and in this case much of the world.  As more and more science comes in to refute the “man is causing global warming” mantra, the people who were so interested in reporting on the “News” of science on global warming are no longer interested.  Are they attention deficit or do they have an agenda?  Either way it isn’t good.

A study, released on Jan. 28 by Kyle L. Swanson and Anastasios A. Tsonis, who are professors in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, found that the Earth has been cooling since 2001 and projected that due to “global variation” the climate would continue to cool for the next 20 to 30 years…..

One of the world’s leading experts on climate change, Dr. William Gray, emeritus professor of atmospheric science at Colorado State University, has lectured for several years that there has been some global warming over the last 100 years largely due to natural circulation changes in the oceans.

“But the world is not in a climate crisis as Vice President Gore would say,” Gray said a little over a year ago. “We have many other important problems in this world we have to work on. And this is a red herring item that we can’t do anything about anyways. If we vastly cut down on our fossil fuels it would be a drop in the bucket in terms of global temperature change. The Third World – India, China and so on – are going to keep burning these fossil fuels.”

  1. There was an AP story a few months ago that said something along the lines of “Just because it is getting colder, doesn’t mean that it isn’t getting warmer”. This global warming thing is becoming a matter of faith rather than a matter of fact.

    I agree that we should do things to protect the environment, but pushing the economy over a cliff to address an issue that doesn’t exist is just crazy.

  2. Absolutely- I think we should be good stewards of our environment. Most people would agree.

    The problem for the alarmists is that the issue becomes useless to them if the ‘human-driven’ component falls out of the equation. You can’t re-engineer society with ‘global warming’ if the darned science ends up proving natural factors are the dominate drivers. How inconvenient.
