You may want to give credit where credit is due to Al Gore and his global warming campaign the next time you fill your car with gasoline, because there is a direct connection between Global Warming and four dollar a gallon gas.Â It is shocking, but true, to learn that the entire Global Warming frenzy is based on the environmentalistâ€™s attack on fossil fuels, particularly gasoline.Â All this big time science, international meetings, thick research papers, dire threats for the future; all of it, comes down to their claim that the carbon dioxide in the exhaust from your car and in the smoke stacks from our power plants is destroying the climate of planet Earth.Â What an amazing fraud; what a scam.
The future of our civilization lies in the balance.Â
Thatâ€™s the battle cry of the High Priest of Global Warming Al Gore and his fellow, agenda driven disciples as they predict a calamitous outcome from anthropogenic global warming.Â According to Mr. Gore the polar ice caps will collapse and melt and sea levels will rise 20 feet inundating the coastal cities making 100 million of us refugees.Â Vice President Gore tells us numerous Pacific islands will be totally submerged and uninhabitable.Â He tells us global warming will disrupt the circulation of the ocean waters, dramatically changing climates, throwing the world food supply into chaos. He tells us global warming will turn hurricanes into super storms, produce droughts, wipe out the polar bears and result in bleaching of coral reefs. He tells us tropical diseases will spread to mid latitudes and heat waves will kill tens of thousands.Â He preaches to us that we must change our lives and eliminate fossil fuels or face the dire consequences.Â The future of our civilization is in the balance.
With a preacherâ€™s zeal, Mr. Gore sets out to strike terror into us and our children and make us feel we are all complicit in the potential demise of the planet.
Here is my rebuttal.
There is no significant man made global warming.Â There has not been any in the past, there is none now and there is no reason to fear any in the future. The climate of Earth is changing. It has always changed.Â But mankindâ€™s activities have not overwhelmed or significantly modified the natural forces.
Through all history, Earth has shifted between two basic climate regimes: ice ages and what paleoclimatologists call â€œInterglacial periodsâ€.Â For the past 10 thousand years the Earth has been in an interglacial period.Â That might well be called natureâ€™s global warming because what happens during an interglacial period is the Earth warms up, the glaciers melt and life flourishes. Clearly from our point of view, an interglacial period is greatly preferred to the deadly rigors of an ice age.Â Mr. Gore and his crowd would have us believe that the activities of man have overwhelmed nature during this interglacial period and are producing an unprecedented, out of control warming.Â
Well, it is simply not happening.Â Worldwide there was a significant natural warming trend in the 1980â€™s and 1990â€™s as a Solar cycle peaked with lots of sunspots and solar flares.Â That ended in 1998 and now the Sun has gone quiet with fewer and fewer Sun spots, and the global temperatures have gone into decline.Â Earth has cooled for almost ten straight years.Â So, I ask Al Gore, whereâ€™s the global warming?
