David Deming has a really good article [commentary] on the cold temperatures that a being recorded worldwide while the myth of Global Warming trudges along unabated. Deming states:
“Al Gore says global warming is a planetary emergency. It is difficult to see how this can be so when record low temperatures are being set all over the world. In 2007, hundreds of people died, not from global warming, but from cold weather hazards.”
The Global Warming contingent has positioned itself that no matter what changes or patterns the weather shows us, manmade emissions it the culprit. So if the planet gets warmer, colder, more hurricanes occur or fewer hurricanes happen, it is all wrapped up into this neat little package called global warming. Since their leader has won the Nobel Peace prize there is no use arguing with that Global Warming exists…even though the facts (like with evolution) have never been proven that human carbon emissions are causing an increase in Global temperatures. Deming states some compelling facts on the temperatures the world is currently experiencing and why these facts will never dissuade Global Warming pundits:
I could care less what some environmental zealot think except when it effects by wallet and the teaching of our children. Sure enough when Global warming ceases to become a theory and is reported and taught as fact then that is when the policies to curb it with mean the ultimate outcome from our government, higher taxes and our children learning a theory as fact by people that do not understand the subtleties involved in the climatologist arena.
“Since the mid-19th century, the mean global temperature has increased by 0.7 degrees Celsius. This slight warming is not unusual, and lies well within the range of natural variation. Carbon dioxide continues to build in the atmosphere, but the mean planetary temperature hasn't increased significantly for nearly nine years. Antarctica is getting colder. Neither the intensity nor the frequency of hurricanes has increased. The 2007 season was the third-quietest since 1966. In 2006 not a single hurricane made landfall in the U.S...”
“If you think any of the preceding facts can falsify global warming, you're hopelessly naive. Nothing creates cognitive dissonance in the mind of a true believer. In 2005, a Canadian Greenpeace representative explained “global warming can mean colder, it can mean drier, it can mean wetter.” In other words, all weather variations are evidence for global warming.”
