I believe in global warming….. and global cooling. It’s called climate change. Since the earth was formed there have been periods of global warming and global cooling that span hundreds of thousands of years. Believe it or not, this actually occurred before the invention of the automobile. It’s also been shown that calling a naturally occurring compound, such as carbon dioxide, a ‘greenhouse’ gas, causes heart palpitations in the liberal breast, and also loosens the purse strings of governments large and small. The gasping and panting of the left DOES increase CO2 but fortunately there are green plants which, unbeknownst to liberals, use CO2 to in the process of photosynthesis, converting it to OXYGEN, which some people believe is necessary for most animal life. The contribution of civilization to carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is 3% of 3% of 3% of all the CO2 generated.
A new batch of 5,000 emails among scientists central to the assertion that humans are causing a global warming crisis were anonymously released to the public yesterday, igniting a new firestorm of controversy nearly two years to the day after similar emails ignited the Climategate scandal.
Three themes are emerging from the newly released emails: (1) prominent scientists central to the global warming debate are taking measures to conceal rather than disseminate underlying data and discussions; (2) these scientists view global warming as a political “cause” rather than a balanced scientific inquiry and (3) many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data.
