Global warming, Al Gore film facing new storm of skepticism

By SALIM MANSUR

On British television recently Channel Four aired its documentary production titled "The Great Global Warming Swindle."

A few days later the New York Times carried rare reporting by William J. Broad on some reaction to the hoopla surrounding the Academy Award for best documentary given to Al Gore's film, An Inconvenient Truth on global warming.

In a cautious tone Broad reported a growing spectrum of opinion in the science community critical of Gore's alarmism about climate change, and his understanding of the science and the scientific evidence available on the subject.

BLINDED BY SCIENCE
It is not expected that Channel Four's documentary will receive notice at next year's Academy Award night in Los Angeles. But the documentary has blown open a massive hole exposing claims of Gore and the "global warming" crowd being at best questionable and at worst a scam in the name of science.

Gore's documentary, directed by David Guggenhneim, has grossed over $46 million. A companion book by Gore reached the top of New York Times bestseller list.

As Broad writes, Gore "depicted a future in which temperatures soar, ice sheets melt, seas rise, hurricanes batter the coasts and people die en masse." At the heart of the argument proselytized by Gore and the "global warming" industry with many governments, including Canadian, in agreement stands the proposition that the primary cause of climate change is human activity.

The contrary evidence is damning.

Global warming presently, and as has occurred in the past, is an effect of changes in sun radiation.

In other words, there has been global warming with shifts in climate and subsequent effects before human beings walked on Earth.

The one constant thing -- despite the heat generated by debate on the subject of "global warming" -- is climate change. The planet Earth through more than 4 billion years of its history has sailed on its orbit around the sun with its climate in constant change.
Evidences gathered from the 2005 data provided by NASA's Mars Global Surveyor and Odyssey Missions reveal Mars' ice caps on its south pole diminishing over the past three summers.

Melting ice on Mars indicates, according to Habi-bullo Abdussamatov, chief of space research at St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory, recent global warming on Earth is caused by variations in sun radiation.

Abdussamatov is quoted as saying, "Man-made greenhouse warming has made a small contribution to the warming seen on Earth in recent years, but it cannot compete with the increase in solar irradiance."

Richard North, co-editor of EU Referendum, in reporting the Channel Four documentary quotes Roy Spencer, formerly a senior scientist at NASA's space flight centre: "The analogy I use is like my car's not running very well, so I'm going to ignore the engine which is the sun and I'm going to ignore the transmission which is the water vapour and I'm going to look at the one nut on the right rear wheel which is the human produced CO2. The science is that bad."
Science does not have a Vatican, a clergy and a doctrine to defend. Science is an activity of fallible human beings striving to understand the workings of nature, and one tool in its arsenal is skepticism.

But when science gets co-opted by politics (often corrupt) or religion (wherein faith is primary) then skepticism is placed under a cloud, and inquisition is close at hand.
The question as to why this subject has become so divisive deserves sober thought and some humility for the planet Earth has its own history irrespective of human activity.

My Rant

The claim that climate change is direct result of man's energy consumption is simply unproven and politically motivated. While they propound lies that certain lightbulbs or cars will destroy the earth and raise ocean levels as much as 20 feet within the next century, fascists, like Al Gore, fly around in their Gulfstream jets and live in homes that use 22 times the energy of an average American's home! Their propaganda is outrageous and potentially catastrophic for the economies of United States, the developed world and developing world.

The proof of global warming or man's influence on climate change is not settled science. Just consider the source of the big lie: the proselytizing hypocritical high priest of the pagan environmental religion Al Gore or the other Kool-Aid drinking climateers from the left such as Learjet liberals, Hollywood high school drop-outs, billonaire elitists, the left-leaning mainstream media, the United Nations, academia, environmental radicals, socialists, other anti-capitalists and so called "researchers", "experts" and/or "scientists" whose paychecks depend upon the apparent existence of the "issue".

United States energy conservation and independence is a worthy goal that should be supported by Republicans, the Democrat Party, true Democrats, Independents and environmentalists. Energy independence is a major national security concern. However, lying to our people, implementing the cap & trade boondoggle which will crush our economy or doing anything that will cause the United States to transfer an portion of its sovereignty to the United Nations is idiotic. Not in my name!
