More Global Warming BS

The Man Made Global Warming circus has stirred people up as nothing else could. On one side you have the Chicken Littles running around screaming that the sky is falling, scaring little children into thinking they are going to burn up in a few years,and demanding Gov'ts and businesses waste trillions of dollars on their voodoo predictions. On the other side you have sane people trying to get the Chicken Littles to debate the issue, stand by their studies and quit their scare-mongering.

Contrary to what the Goracle says, the debate is not over, but to some you would think that it is and ignoring the problem is "criminally irresponsible."
VALENCIA, Spain - The U.N.'s top climate official warned policymakers and scientists trying to hammer out a landmark report on climate change that ignoring the urgency of global warming would be "criminally irresponsible."

Yvo de Boer's comments came at the opening of a weeklong conference that will complete a concise guide on the state of global warming and what can be done to stop the Earth from overheating.

No, what is "criminally irresponsible" is blindly following those with an agenda down a dead end road and tilting at windmills.

Thanks to a fellow skeptic in Congress that has been e-mailing me, I have a few links to more skeptics:

Meteorologists debate the issue:
KLTV 7 has three meteorologist on staff. It's their job to analyze weather patterns both in the short term, and the long term. When it comes to Global Warming, all three have a lot to say.

It's being blamed for almost every major catastrophe, hurricanes, tornados, flooding and even droughts. More and more people are now on the Global Warming bandwagon.

"Any idea can become mainstream if you just hear one side of the argument," said KLTV 7 Meteorologist Morgan Palmer.

For those who study the weather everyday, the idea of man-made Global Warming is a scientific theory, and Palmer says it has now become political.

"It is because of money," said Palmer. "Folks that are writing these papers, that a lot of institutions are going after, grant money and grant money is given by folks who might have very good intentions, but unfortunately the papers that are being written are heavily weighed on man-made Global Warming."

Now, Meteorologist Mark Scirto and Grant Dade want the other side of the argument to be heard.

"I think it is about time we see the other side of the Global Warming debate come out," said Dade. "Is the Earth warming? Yes, I think it is. But is man causing that? No. It's a simple climate cycle our climate goes through over thousands of years."

What the skeptics want is a debate on the issue, let the data tell the story. But that is not going to happen as long as the Climate Change Inquisitioners shut down anyone that has an opposing view.

And the cost to American businesses to prevent the sky from falling? Trillions!
A misguided environmental-policy bill meandering through the Senate would slap U.S. businesses with pie-in-the-sky requirements for cutting greenhouse gases by unattainable amounts.

The proposed bill introduced by Sens. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent, and John Warner, Virginia Republican, would require companies to scale back greenhouse-gas emissions to 2005 levels by 2012 and 1990 levels by 2020. Over the longer haul, the bill would mandate a 65 percent reduction in greenhouse emissions from 1990 levels by 2050. Companies that wish to exceed the greenhouse-gas limits would be allowed to purchase credits from companies whose emissions meet the standards, purportedly to offset their environmental impact.

Titled the "America's Climate Security Act," the bill's end results would cause serious damage to our economic security and at best have a negligible impact on the world's rising greenhouse-gas emission levels. It also does nothing to boost nuclear-energy development, one of the cleanest and most efficient energy sources. The bill fails to compensate and protect consumers from rising natural gas prices and harms job security by encouraging companies to move overseas to nations with less draconian standards. In short, the bill's effects would land a crippling encroachment on U.S. power plants, factories and transportation sectors.

Trillions of dollars, lost jobs and major damage to our economy, all for what?

All for something that has not been proven and is debatable.

As I have stated on numerous times, the Global Warming Scare is not about saving our planet from a debatable problem, it is about socialist control and the ruining of the economies of industrialized nations.
