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 voila, we are told global warming is going to kill us all unless we stop burning fossil fuels.
Carbon dioxide is not an environmental problem; they just want you now to think it is.
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.
Frankly, I'm far more inclined to believe John Coleman than Al Gore.
Coleman has done far more research and review about something in which he has years of expertise, where Al Gore has none. John Coleman has nothing to gain from denouncing the global warming hysteria he sees. Al Gore has millions, if not billions of dollars to gain if he can sell his pitch that we're all to blame for climate change. So do many of the so-called scientists that have reached a consensus that we're to blame, even though a majority of those “scientists” have no background or training in climate science what so ever.
When the deniers with scientific background and knowledge about our climate far outnumber the proponents of global warming, I must go with the majority. This is particularly so because a significant number of the deniers were once proponents of global warming. But as they reviewed studies and conducted research of their own, they found the numbers didn't add up, that too many of the studies reached conclusions that we were the cause of global warming, conclusions that were not supported by the data. And some deniers have been stating that we are more likely entering a period of global cooling, an effect of the lower than average solar activity we are now experiencing.
If nothing else, it can be said that the debate about anthropogenic global warming is not over. It's nowhere near over.
