Catching Up on Global Warming

I've been very busy lately, so it's been difficult to keep up with all the Global Warming news. I had half a dozen draft blog posts that I'm just going to merge into one big update.

First, and perhaps funniest, is an article from back around Valentine's Day warning of the dire consequences of Planet-Killing Roses. That's right...Global Warming Alarmists are now tracking "flower miles" and decrying the evil means of commerce used to deliver them.

Next we have the unexpectedly straightforward admission that balance and objectivity hurt the acceptance of Global Warming. According to Mr. Gore, the mainstream media have chosen "balance as bias." Rather than just accepting the Global Warming Whopper hook, line and stinker, the media is actually doing it's job by reporting both sides of the story. That continues to be a foreign concept to ultra-liberals like Gore.

Canada's National Post has a series entitled Climate Change: The Deniers (gee...which side do they fall on?) which in one segment details the 'defection' of French Socialist Claude Allegre, one of the first scientists to sound the alarm on Global Warming who now sees it as "over-hyped and an environmental concern of second rank."

Life Style Extra posted an interesting review of a new documentary called The Great Global Warming Swindle which challenges the persistent and misleading claims of Global Warming Alarmists. The article describes the documentary as "essentially a polemic... [expected] to cause trouble" and quotes scientists who refers to Global Warming Alarmism as "almost a McCarthyism movement in science where the greenhouse effect is like a puritanical religion." Amen!

In keeping with that theme, Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus recently declared environmentalism a religion that "seeks to reorganize the world order as well as social behavior and value systems worldwide." Former climatology professor Timothy Ball would agree, having received at least five death threads for being a Global Warming Denier. He for one is tired of being compared to Holocaust deniers, which he calls "an obscenity...really nasty and personal."

And finally, just recently scientists have continued to speak out and add to the growing skepticism of Global Warming Alarmism. Researchers at esteemed places such as the Niels Bohr Institute cast doubt on the "global temperature" as a "
concept [that] is thermodynamically as well as mathematically an impossibility" and basically describes it as an average without any real meaning. Meanwhile, other scientists are decrying the use of Hollywood fear-mongering to increase public concern over Global Warming, and (predictably and hypocritically) it was revealed that a scientist who claimed the Bush Administration muzzled him has done over 1400 interview opportunities to spread his Alarmist views.

Global Warming has definitely become the current battle ground for socialist liberalism, and I shudder to think what's going to happen should one of these radicals be put in the Oval Office next year.
