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.  
What an amazing fraud! What a scam!

AL GORE'S BATTLE CRY
The future of our civilization lies in the balance.  

That’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.
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.  Vice President Gore tells us numerous Pacific islands will be totally
submerged and uninhabitable.

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. He preaches to us that we must change our
lives and eliminate fossil fuels or face the dire consequences. The future of our
civilization is in the balance.

With a preacher’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.

MY REBUTTAL
There is no significant man made global warming. 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. But mankind’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 “Interglacial periods.” For the past 10 thousand years the
Earth has been in an interglacial period. That might well be called nature’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.
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.
 

Well, it is simply not happening. Worldwide there was a significant natural warming
trend in the 1980’s and 1990’s as a Solar cycle peaked with lots of sunspots and solar
flares.  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. Earth has cooled for almost
ten straight years.
So, I ask Al Gore, where’s the global warming?

The cooling trend is so strong that recently the head of the United Nation’s Intergovern-
mental Panel on Climate Change had to acknowledge it.  He speculated that nature has
temporarily overwhelmed mankind’s warming and it may be ten years or so before the
warming returns. Oh, really.
We are supposed to be in a panic about man-made
global warming and the whole thing takes a ten year break because of the lack
of Sun spots.
If this weren’t so serious, it would be laughable.

    GLOBAL WARMING "SCIENCE"
    Now allow me to talk a little about the science behind the global
    warming frenzy. I have dug through thousands of pages of research
    papers, including the voluminous documents published by the United
    Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I have worked
    my way through complicated math and complex theories.

    Here’s the bottom line: the entire global warming scientific
    case is based on the increase in carbon dioxide in the
    atmosphere from the use of fossil fuels.  They don’t have any
    other issue. Carbon Dioxide, that’s it.

Hello Al Gore; Hello UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Your science is
flawed; your hypothesis is wrong; your data is manipulated.
And, may I add, your
scare tactics are deplorable. The Earth does not have a fever. Carbon dioxide does not
cause significant global warming.

The focus on atmospheric carbon dioxide grew out a study by Roger Revelle who was an
esteemed scientist at the Scripps Oceanographic Institute. He took his research with him
when he moved to Harvard and allowed his students to help him process the data for his
paper. One of those students was Al Gore. That is where Gore got caught up in this
global warming frenzy.
Revelle’s paper linked the increases in carbon dioxide,
CO2, in the atmosphere with warming.  It labeled CO2 as a greenhouse gas.

Charles Keeling, another researcher at the Scripps Oceanographic Institute, set up a
system to make continuous CO2 measurements. His graph of these increases has now
become known as the Keeling Curve. When Charles Keeling died in 2005, his son David,
also at Scripps, took over the measurements.
Here is what the Keeling curve
shows: an increase in CO2 from 315 parts per million in 1958 to 385 parts per
million today, an increase of 70 parts per million or about 20 percent.

All the computer models, all of the other findings, all of the other angles of study, all
come back to and are based on CO2 as a significant greenhouse gas.
It is not.

Here is the deal about CO2, carbon dioxide. It is a natural component of our
atmosphere.
It has been there since time began. It is absorbed and emitted by the
oceans. It is used by every living plant to trigger photosynthesis. Nothing would be green
without it. And we humans; we create it. Every time we breathe out, we emit carbon
dioxide into the atmosphere.
It is not a pollutant. It is not smog. It is a naturally
occurring invisible gas.  

AN ILLUSTRATION EVEN AL GORE MIGHT UNDERSTAND
Let me illustrate. I estimate that this square in front of my face contains 100,000
molecules of atmosphere.  Of those 100,000 only 38 are CO2; 38 out of a hundred
thousand. That makes it a trace component.
Let me ask a key question: how can
this tiny trace upset the entire balance of the climate of Earth?
It can’t. That’s all
there is to it; it can’t.

The UN IPCC has attracted billions of dollars for the research to try to make the case
that CO2 is the culprit of run-away, man-made global warming. The scientists have come
up with very complex creative theories and done elaborate calculations and run
computer models they say prove those theories. They present us with a concept they
call radiative forcing. The research organizations and scientists who are making a career
out of this theory, keep cranking out the research papers. Then the IPCC puts on big
conferences at exotic places, such as the recent conference in Bali.
The scientists
endorse each other’s papers, they are summarized and voted on, and viola, we
are told global warming is going to kill us all unless we stop burning fossil fuels.

AN ASIDE
May I stop here for a few historical notes? First, the internal combustion engine and
gasoline were awful polluters when they were first invented. And, both gasoline and
automobile engines continued to leave a layer of smog behind right up through the
1960s. Then science and engineering came to the environmental rescue. Better exhaust
and ignition systems, catalytic converters, fuel injectors, better engineering throughout
the engine and reformulated gasoline have all contributed to a huge reduction in the
exhaust emissions from today’s cars. Their goal then was to only exhaust carbon dioxide
and water vapor, two gases widely accepted as natural and totally harmless. Anyone old
enough to remember the pall of smog that used to hang over all our cities knows how
much improvement there has been.

So
the environmentalists, in their battle against fossil fuels and automobiles
had a very good point forty years ago, but now they have to focus almost
entirely on the once harmless carbon dioxide.
And, that is the rub. Carbon dioxide
is not an environmental problem; they just want you now to think it is.  

THE INTENSE CRUSADE...ONE CROWDED BUS
Numerous independent research projects have been done about the greenhouse impact
from increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide.  These studies have proven to my total
satisfaction that CO2 is not creating a major greenhouse effect and is not causing an
increase in temperatures. By the way, before his death, Roger Revelle coauthored a
paper cautioning that CO2 and its greenhouse effect did not warrant extreme
countermeasures.

So now it has come down to an intense campaign, orchestrated by
environmentalists claiming that the burning of fossil fuels dooms the planet to
run-away global warming.  Ladies and Gentlemen, that is a myth.

So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences,
become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth?  
That is the most amazing part of the story.  

  • To start with global warming has the backing of                                                   
    the United Nations, a major world force.  
  • Second, it has the backing of a former Vice                                                 
    President and very popular political figure.  
  • Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood,                                                          
    and that’s enough for millions.
  • And, fourth, the environmentalists love global                                                   
    warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels.

So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and
predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb
aboard.
After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just
loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s
pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN.  CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, the
New
York Times
, The LA Times, the Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San
Diego, the
Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.  

So who is going to go against all of that power? Not the politicians. So now the
President of the United States, just about every governor, most senators and most
Congress people, both of the major current candidates for President, most other elected
officials on all levels of government are all riding the Al Gore Global Warming express.  
That is one crowded bus.  

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY...31,000 SCIENTISTS
I suspect you haven’t heard it because the mass media did not report it, but I am not
alone on the no man-made warming side of this issue.

On May 20th, a list of the names of over thirty-one thousand scientists who
refute global warming was released.
Thirty-one thousand of which 9,000 are Ph.Ds.  
Think about that. Thirty-one thousand. That dwarfs the supposed 2,500 scientists on the
UN panel. In the past year, five hundred of scientists have issued public statements
challenging global warming.  A few more join the chorus every week.  

There are about 100 defectors from the UN IPCC. There was an International
Conference of Climate Change Skeptics in New York in March of this year. One hundred
of us gave presentations. Attendance was limited to six hundred people. Every seat was
taken.There are a half dozen excellent internet sites that debunk global warming.

And, thank goodness for KUSI and Michael McKinnon, its owner. He allows me to post my
comments on global warming on the website
KUSI.com. Following the publicity of my
position from Fox News, Glen Beck on CNN, Rush Limbaugh and a host of other
interviews, thousands of people come to the website and read my comments. I get
hundreds of supportive emails from them. No I am not alone and the debate is not over.  

THE BATTLE RAGES
In my remarks in New York I speculated that perhaps we should sue Al Gore for fraud
because of his carbon credits trading scheme. That remark has caused a stir in the
fringe media and on the Internet.
The concept is that if the media won’t give us a
hearing and the other side will not debate us, perhaps we could use a Court of
law to present our papers and our research and if the Judge is unbiased and
understands science, we win.  The media couldn’t ignore that.
That idea has
become the basis for legal research by notable attorneys and discussion among global
warming debunkers, but it’s a long way from the Court room.

I am very serious about this issue.
I think stamping out the global warming scam is
vital to saving our wonderful way of life.

The battle against fossil fuels has controlled policy in this country for decades. It was the
environmentalist’s prime force in blocking any drilling for oil in this country and the
blocking the building of any new refineries, as well.
So now the shortage they
created has sent gasoline prices soaring.
And, it has lead to the folly of ethanol,
which is also partly behind the fuel price increases; that and our restricted oil policy.  
The ethanol folly is also creating a food crisis throughput the world – it is
behind the food price rises for all the grains, for cereals, bread, everything that
relies on corn or soy or wheat, including animals that are fed corn, most
processed foods that use corn oil or soybean oil or corn syrup.
Food shortages
or high costs have led to food riots in some third world countries and made the cost of
eating out or at home budget busting for many.

So now the global warming myth actually has lead to the chaos we are now
enduring with energy and food prices. We pay for it every time we fill our gas
tanks.  Not only is it running up gasoline prices, it has changed government
policy impacting our taxes, our utility bills and the entire focus of government
funding. And, now the Congress is considering a cap and trade carbon credits
policy. We the citizens will pay for that, too. It all ends up in our taxes and the
price of goods and services.

So the Global warming frenzy is, indeed, threatening our civilization.  Not because global
warming is real; it is not.  But because of the all the horrible side effects of the global
warming scam.  

MY MISSION
I love this civilization.  I want to do my part to protect it.

If Al Gore and his global warming scare dictates the future policy of our governments,
the current economic downturn could indeed become a recession, drift into a depression
and our modern civilization could fall into an abyss. And it would largely be a direct result
of the global warming frenzy.

My mission, in what is left of a long and exciting lifetime, is to stamp out this Global
Warming silliness and let all of us get on with enjoying our lives and loving our planet,
Earth.

    ...Global Warming and the
    Price of a Gallon of Gas

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.  

It is shocking, but true, to learn that the entire Global
Warming frenzy is based on the environmentalist’s attack
on fossil fuels, particularly gasoline.
