Scientist issues warning about climate change

Original post made on Feb 16, 2009

A Stanford University scientist speaking at a national meeting in Chicago Saturday morning warned that climate change in the 21st century is going to be more accelerated and create more environmental damage through global warming than previously thought.

Gores film An Inconvenient Truth is full of lies. Not exaggerations. Not errors.

Al Gore air brushed out the little ice age and the medieval warming periods from his graphs in AIT. We wouldn't want people knowing that the earth was two degrees celsius warmer than it is now during the medieval warming period. Somehow man survived without the use of central cooling. Gore left off the little ice age because he wouldn't want to demonstrate that the warming trend he talks about began at the end of an ice age.

He also stated that sea lever would rise by 20 feet by the end of the century. Even the UN IPCC (harldy conservative on this issue) estimates only 4 to 36 inches.

Gore also suggested that the Aral Sea has dried up because of global warming. In actuality it has been drained for the irrigation of cotton crops.

Gore claims that for the first time ever, a significant number of polar bears had drowned. First of all, they can swim around fifty miles. Secondly, the researchers at one of America's most respected think tanks the Competitive Enterprise Institute tracked down the study Gore was quoting and found that only four polar bears had drowned during severe storm conditions.

Furthermore, he quotes a quickly debunked paper suggesting there is a 100% consenus among scientists that athropogenic global warming is real. Here are a few scientists who must have missed the memo:

It is worth noting that a UK Court ruled that AIT contained many errors and should not be shown in public schools without a warning about the errors.

I find it interesting that Al Gore talks the talk, but doesn't walk the walk. He jets around the world in his private plane. He rides around in gas guzzling limousines, and has a compound so wasteful of energy that it needs its own power grid. His houseboat more than likely isn't that energy efficient either.
I suppose conserving energy and fighting global warming is for the little people. Let the peasants drive the small dangerous energy efficient cars, I'll drive what I want.

Al Gore was worth about $2 Million Dollars when leaving office and is worth over $100 Million now. He's laughing all the way to the global warming bank. It's a pity some are too gullible to see it. As one of my favorite SNL characters might have said "global warming has been bery bery good to him."

By the way, the flat earthers were the ones who refused to debate. "The debates over, we have a consensus." Sound familiar? If anyone is a flat earther, it's Al Gore.

Everyone who has seen An Inconvenient Truth should view The Great Global Warming Swindle in order to get a more balanced view of the true state of the science on this issue.

Yes, "Dash," the "Hooterville Gazette" is my #1 source of reliable news, too! Thanks for the "information."

I'd welcome any errors you'd care to report.

Nice to see the Neo-cons out in force. Why don't you attack the scholars who created the data that the messenger, Al Gore, brought up in AIT? Is it because you don't truly have a grasp of the data and research that has gone into their scientific findings? Dr. Fields is the expert you would contradict if you knew what you were talking about, but you don't so you go after Al Gore because he's the antithesis of your world view. Antithesis is a word intelligent people use to describe an opposite, didn't want to leave things to far over your head.
