Snow In Southern California - Hey, Mr. Gore, Where's That Global Warming You Promised?
The temperature is a dropping, and snow, it is a falling, here in Sunny Southern California, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. . .
That's right, folks, the snow is falling, and it is being measured in feet. Granted, the snow is falling on the Grape Vine, and the Cajon Pass (two highway arteries that connect Southern California with the Central part of the state), but it sure is a heck of a lot more than we are used to. . .
But hey, it is supposed to be warm outside, heating up every moment, isn't it? Forget the fact that the global temperatures have stopped rising. . . Al Gore promised me some Global Warming, dang it, and I am cold! Where is that Global Warming Mr. Gore promised?
After all, we have been trying to save the planet, and we don't want to have to realize that all of this war against global warming is a bunch of B.S., do we?
We need to Save The Planet! - or at least that has been the claim of those that have fallen prey to the Chicken Little story of man-made global warming. Despite the mounting evidence that the sun is the primary cause of any climate change (meaning that global changes in the temperature are natural, and cyclictic), that carbon levels lag behind changes in global temperature (meaning that increased carbon does not cause global warming, but that global warming causes an increase in levels of carbon in the atmosphere), and that our meager human green house gas emissions are minute and negligible when compared to that of the ocean and volcanoes, people around the world continue to follow the Pied Piper of Al Gore like blind mice heading for a steep, though green, cliff. "After all," they claim, "there is a scientific consensus that says it is all so!"
In Poland there is a United Nations global warming conference underway - and it turns out that there is not a consensus after all! Over 650 dissenting scientists from around the world are saying that Al Gore's claims, and the claims of the United Nations IPCC, are wrong! And many of these dissenting voices are former U.N. IPCC scientists, to boot!
Could it be that people are finally seeing the environmental hysteria for what it really is? Has the new religion of man-made global warming shown its hand for the land grabbing, freedom killing, government control mechanism that it is?
It is about time.
