Debate, and discuss, just dont Bore me.

Decrease?  OMG!  Grab the logs for the fire!  Grab extra blankets!  Armegeddon is upon us!

Well, we can almost here Al Gorette yelling this as the new religion of Global Cooling takes up where the old tired religion of Global Warming dies a noisy, if deserved death.  But of course this is not really anything to worry about as the earth has been doing this for billions (that is of years.  Yet we are going to have to worry about freezing to death now?  Better stoke up that pollution, or we are going to DIE!

In all fairness to the headline, the "scientist" (and that term is used freely) are only predicting that 2008 will be colder than the previous years.  Which is good news for me!  I don't relish spending a week in the desert southwest when temperatures hit 120 - 110 is ok.

But I love this quote from the article:

 

"When you look at climate change you should not look at any particular year," he [Michel Jarraud] told the BBC. "You should look at trends over a pretty long period and the trend of temperature globally is still very much indicative of warming."

 

Look at trends?  These Chicken Littles have been looking at maybe 150 years of data (and some determined to be flawed) and trying to extrapolate something that has been going on for billions of years?  What a bunch of mealy mouthed wanna bees (hence the loose term of scientists)!  The data suggests that the earth has NOT been warming for the last 10 years, or 7% of the available data.

And he says to "look over the long period"?  That is laughable.  But expected. Most of the "experts" are more concerned with being at the leading edge of the new religion than adhering to scientific principal.

And each time they try to weasel out, or double talk a new explanation of why the facts are proving them wrong, they just appear to be more and more a bunch of snake oil salesmen instead of scientists.

As evidenced by their attempt at a name change.

I don't know about that.

Gore Launches Ambitious Advocacy Campaign on Climate

Former vice president Al Gore will launch a three-year, $300 million campaign Wednesday aimed at mobilizing Americans to push for aggressive reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, a move that ranks as one of the most ambitious and costly public advocacy campaigns in U.S. history.

The Alliance for Climate Protection's "we" campaign will employ online organizing and television advertisements on shows ranging from "American Idol" to "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." It highlights the extent to which Americans' growing awareness of global warming has yet to translate into national policy changes, Gore said in an hour-long phone interview last week. He said the campaign, which Gore is helping to fund, was undertaken in large part because of his fear that U.S. lawmakers are unwilling to curb the human-generated emissions linked to climate change.

"This climate crisis is so interwoven with habits and patterns that are so entrenched, the elected officials in both parties are going to be timid about enacting the bold changes that are needed until there is a change in the public's sense of urgency in addressing this crisis," Gore said. "I've tried everything else I know to try. The way to solve this crisis is to change the way the public thinks about it."

The problem with their "long term" bullshit is that Al Gore and his ilk are trying to argue that global warming is caused by humans and their CO2 and therefore would not follow a long term natural trend but in fact be correlated with increases in Co2 from humans.

Given the amount of Co2 going into the atmosphere has been increasing dramatically yet teh temperature has been flat since 1998 and now decreasing, it's time for the "climate change" zealots to start eating some humble pie.

The IPPC is an organization that without a human causation for GW has no reason to exist, so it's no surprise they have a bias.  

http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/originals/whytheipccshouldbedisbanded.html

The reason GW is front and center is not because of the power of fringe kooks whom think the debate is over it's being furthered by governments. The populations are just like a room full of kids, if you don't give them something to do there's going to be chaos. Governments have known for thousands of years that the people need an enemy or a cause to keep them busy and content. One look at the stupid solutions they back shows there not serious about it. It's just with nothing to do the people might start critiquing the way things are run and no government wants that.

Yep, like I wrote on my blog......Al Gore is in panic mode.  Yes sireeeee and now we can sit back and watch him squirm. 

Is it too late for him to take back his award for lying?  

It looks like "An Inconvenient Truth" needs to be renamed.

Well... I never really liked the fanatics of the global warming debate. I thought their tactics were exteme to say the least.


I was surpised though that there is proof that the Earth is cooling and has been for the past 10 years.

NEVERTHELESS, whether you are on "the Earth is doing just fine" team or on "the  Earth is dieing" team, the bottom ine that everyone is missing almost everytime I hear this debate is that we can not continue to trash our planet up with waste. We need to take better care of our environment and I do not think we should wait until there is proof that we are destroying it. Once there is proof, more likely than not, it will be too late.

Lets face the real REAL reality and that is we still need to figure out what to do with our trash, carbon, and overall use of the environment.

No truth is more inconvenient than a lie.

I think the fact that he has now resorted to name calling for the non-believers indicates he is desperate. I dont think it is over, but they have definitely jumped the shark.

The lost their dentures when they signed on to the cause. They are just a bunch of toothless old men (and women).

Kind of like Luekemia (sp). When the soldiers dont have anything to fight, they cannibalize the body.

Your whole post is excellent. I wish we had the "Insightful" buttons back.

Why would he take back an award for lying? he does it so well.

And the "flat earthers" have known he misnamed his propaganda. It was always "A Convenient Lie".

Your point is known, but the rebuttal is "The Boy Who cried Wolf". Doing something about pollution is good for all of us. Lying to us to make us do something is counter productive as the truth will come out, and when it does, it will cause a backlash to the original cause, be it noble or not.

And that is what is going to happen, unfortunately. The ones that are serious about pollution, without the religion, will always be. And they consist of most of the flat earthers as well. The ones that just put a pretty bow on a pigs ear and call it a silk purse will abandon it.

It does not help a religion when its high priest does not practice what they preach. Al gore has never been serious about cleaning up the planet, just about creating a cult and becoming its high priest. His Carbon credits is evidence he does not care about pollution or his religions central creed.
