“Algore says we have ten years left to save the planet from a scorching.
Okay, we’re going to start counting.
We will begin the count, ladies and gentlemen.”
January 27, 2006
Today marks the point where we are one-third (1/3) of the way through those 10 years.
If Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” were really true, and we are significantly along that path to scorching, shouldn’t we be seeing some significant temperature increases by this point?
Our climate is not driven by CO2. But it is affected by the number of solar flares, which are currently at a minimum. The Earth is actually cooling very slightly, not warming.
Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” is anything but the truth. It is a convenient lie, being foisted by Democratic Socialist Communists who are trying to destroy Capitalism and replace it with Socialism first, then Communism.
You don’t think the “green” movement is anti-capitalist? Even people who think “the BEST film [they] have ever seen” is the Apocalyptic fiction film “The Age of Stupid” recognize that it is anti-capitalist…
Quite honestly the BEST film i have ever seen.
Certainly not unnecessarily anti – capitalist but it is an inescapable truth that the way of life to date of much of the west (ie. that of a capitalist society) is largely responsible for the mess we are in.

The scare over global warming has been deliberately stoked up for political reasons and has long since parted company with proper scientific evidence.
Nothing has more acutely demonstrated this than the reliance of the IPCC on computer models to predict what is going to happen to global temperatures over the next 100 years. On these predictions, that temperatures are likely to rise by up to 5.3ºC, all their other predictions and recommendations depend, yet nearly 10 years into the 21st century it is already painfully clear that the computer forecasts are going hopelessly astray. Far from rising with CO2, as the models are programmed to predict they should, the satellite-measured temperature curve has flattened out and then dropped. If the present trend were to continue, the world in 2100 would not in fact be hotter but 1.1ºC cooler than the 1979-1998 average.
Yet it is on this fundamental inability of the computer models to predict what has already happened that all else hangs. Recently in New York for two days distinguished experts, such as Professor Syun-Ichi Akasofu, former director of the International Arctic Research Center, Dr Willie Soon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and Professor Paul Reiter of the Pasteur Institute, authoritatively (and often wittily) tore apart one piece of the scare orthodoxy after another.
Sea levels are not shooting up but only continuing their modest 3mm a year rise over the past 200 years. The vast Antarctic ice-sheet is not melting, except in one tiny corner, the Antarctic Peninsula. Tropical hurricane activity, far from increasing, is at its lowest level for 30 years. The best correlation for temperature fluctuations is not CO2 but the magnetic activity of the sun. For an admirable summary of proceedings by the Australian paleoclimatologist Professor Bob Carter, Google “Heartland” and “Quadrant”.
The entire point of the global movement to arrest energy production is to punish the industrial nations for their wealth. This is just redistributionism writ large. They don’t want to limit carbon emissions per se; they just want the right people to emit carbon. Nations like the US, the UK, and other Western nations would have to be out of their minds to agree to a regime that allows China and India to emit far more carbon per capita than themselves, in order to meet some Utopian ideal of “fairness” in economic success.
