Global Warming or Ice Age?

While I have no doubt that us humans, contribute big time to the destruction of our planet and atmosphere, I’ve had a hard time swallowing the whole Global Warming fear campaign.

Maybe it’s just my skepticism since we are inundated daily with one fear or another to subdue us into submission, I don’t know. I just know that I no longer accept the “new report”, the “new study” or the “latest finding” as it is promoted by the media OR politicians, and definitely not as the gospel truth.

Do we need to do more to take care of what nature has provided us? By all means, YES! Are we about to self implode soon? I highly doubt it.

About the only thing that really scares me lately is the idea that Bush could actually start another war, nuclear, using Iran as his excuse this time. But I find I just can’t get all worked up and stressed out over Al Gore’s ‘predictions’.

ICE AGE OR LIE AGE?

I recently interviewed Mark Lynas, author of ‘Six Degrees Could Change The World’.* He was promoting the two hour world premier on the National Geographic Channel of the documentary based on his book. I watched the DVD he had sent along with his book and was incensed to hear Alec Baldwin announce “the debate is over.” BULLFEATHERS!

The debate is NOT over. The sycophant supporters of Al Gore’s ‘the sky is falling’ rhetoric just flat out refuse to discuss any and all facts or evidence that contradicts their preconceived opinions, prejudices and gospel.

Scientists, real scientists, continue to debate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of ‘global warming’ and specifically the significance (or insignificance) of man’s contribution to impacting the planet.

Investor’s Business Daily is far from being a fringe rag. “Founded in 1984…IBD editorials are rigorously researched, presenting under-reported – or simply unreported – facts that give you a better insight into the truth behind the headlines.

A recent IBD editorial underscores the reality of the ongoing debate. Notwithstanding Lynas and Baldwin proclaiming “the debate is over,” not every scientist is part of the mythical “consensus.”

In fact, scientists worried about a new ice age are seeking funding to better observe something bigger than all the Al Gore hype— the sun.

A 1991 study by the Danish Meteorological Institute using data that went back centuries showed that global temperatures closely tracked solar cycles. Hell-o!

The solar cycle’s data is (within the scientific community) accepted as hugely convincing. Also, the data indicates there IS a potential danger threatening the planet…but it’s not global warming…rather it is global cooling.
