I heard that joke today from some comedian, but I don’t know who the hell it was, but it was funny.
What’s not funny, yet not at all shocking to those of us who are not yet convinced that “the science is settled” on man-made global warming, is the discovery of the “Climategate” emails. Do you homework on this one kids, because the next power grab this administration will try to ram down our throats will be cap & trade.
I saw this reader comment and thought it mirrored my own opinion on the Al Gore Show well: “There are several problems with the current approach to global warming: First, is the general lack of recognition that climate change has been a constant part of the planet’s history for the last 4.5 billion years and is not a recent phenomenon. Second, is the view that data for a couple of hundred years is climate data instead of aggregated weather data– if you want climate data take a look over several hundred thousand years, at a minimum; if not several million years. What you will discover is that this current warming trend is not remarkable, but a fairly ordinary inter-glacial climatic event, much like the four that preceded it — not the warmest or the coolest. Third, look at the reality of greenhouse gases. CO2 is a minor greenhouse gas and only about 1% as effective a greenhouse gas as the much more common water vapor.”
