As absolutely brutal winter weather hammers the United States, Europe and Asia, many people are wondering where all of that "global warming" is supposed to be. After all, if climate change is about to cause absolute devastation to the earth, shouldn't we all at least be able to enjoy some mild winters in the meanwhile? The truth is that this winter is making an absolute mockery out of the climate change crowd. It simply does not make sense that the earth is massively heating up when we are experiencing record cold temperatures and record-setting snow storms all over the globe.
So just what is going on with the weather? Well, it is actually the sun the drives global warming and cooling, and right now we are in a cooling cycle. To learn more about the science behind this, just check out this article.
In any event, the truth is that even the common man or woman on the street can put 2 and 2 together this winter and realize that this whole "global warming" thing is not all that it is cracked up to be. The following are just 8 reasons why this winter is making a mockery out of the climate change crowd....
#1) Global warming? Record-setting cold temperatures and brutal winter weather (Read More....)
Most Americans seem to think that the world leaders gathered at the U.N. Copenhagen climate change summit are simply discussing ways to help improve the environment. Unfortunately that is not anywhere close to the truth. The draft of the Copenhagen climate change treaty now circulating would represent a giant step towards a "world government", it would establish brutal new world taxes which would transfer massive amounts of wealth from the United States to other nations, and it would create 700 new bureaucracies to enforce this new treaty. Not only that, but according to the provisions of the treaty, the United States would never be able to get out of it. The wording of the treaty makes it crystal clear that no future president, no future Congress and no future U.S. court would be able to extricate the United States from this horrific agreement.
An earlier version of the Copenhagen climate change treaty can be found here. However, the version of the treaty now being circulated in Copenhagen is not available to the public at this point.
Fortunately, there are some officials who have seen the latest version and who are willing to speak out. One of them is Lord Christopher Monckton - a former official in the Thatcher administration.
We already knew that the Copenhagen Treaty was (Read More....)
As the U.N. Copenhagen climate change summit begins today, prostitutes in that city are looking forward to doing a brisk business with government officials who are flying in from all over the world. However, things are not looking so great for anyone who would dare to protest the climate change summit. Authorities have prepared small metal cages for the "extended detention" of protestors. By publicizing the severe security measures being implemented ahead of time, summit organizers appear to be attempting to send this message to opponents: "Don't mess with us!"
Denmark is one of the growing number of countries where prostitution is actually legal. Instead of being called "prostitutes", they are known as "sex workers". You can almost hear thousands of world officials salivating as they arrive in Copenhagen anticipating a very productive and stimulating time away from their home countries.
But not everyone is thrilled. Copenhagen's mayor actually sent out postcards to 160 Copenhagen hotels urging summit delegates to "be sustainable - don't buy sex".
But since prostitution is legal in Denmark, there is not much the mayor can do to stop it. In fact, many of Copenhagen's "sex care workers" are reportedly offering free sex to anyone who can produce (Read More....)
As world leaders prepare to converge on the U.N. climate change convention in Copenhagen next week, the belief in global warming and climate change is increasingly becoming less science and more religion. In fact, Al Gore himself, the one being called the "eco-prophet" and "the Moses of this generation" recently admitted as much. In his new book, "Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis", Gore focuses on the "spiritual side" of fighting global warming. As far as allowing the science to persuade people about the threat of global warming goes, Gore puts it very bluntly in his book: "Simply laying out the facts won't work." Why won't laying out the facts work? Well, the truth is that as Climategate has revealed, the science is not on the side of the global warming extremists, so blind faith must be called for.
For those not familiar with Climategate, essentially what happened is that hacked emails and documents from the University of East Anglia’s Hadley Climate Research Unit were posted on the Internet which prove that many of the key scientists involved in the theory of global warming conspired to falsify climate data in order to prop up the premise that mankind is causing climate change. A great summary of this unfolding scandal can be found here.
Why did they did those scientists have to falsify the (Read More....)
We all know how the mainstream media loves to portray Al Gore - the visionary "eco-prophet" who shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his climate advocacy. But is Al Gore truly such a selfless do-gooder? What does it say about the motives of an environmental crusader when that person stands poised to rake in billions of dollars from the very carbon credit trading scheme that he is tirelessly advocating?
That is exactly the position that Al Gore finds himself in. The leading advocate of the theory of "man-made global warming" is also one of the people who would likely benefit the most financially from the implementation of a "cap and trade" carbon credit trading scheme.
You see, Al Gore is chairman of Generation Investment Management. David Blood, the former chief executive of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, is the CEO.
Thus the nickname - Blood and Gore.
Wikipedia describes Blood and Gore this way.....
Generation Investment Management LLP (GIM) is a London-based investment management firm with an investment style that (Read More....)
There has been a very disturbing new trend among world leaders who are also "global warming" activists. Increasingly, these world leaders are openly discussing the need for "global governance" to fight "man-made global warming". To them it appears obvious that a global problem requires a global solution. In fact, the December summit in Copenhagen is being hailed by these world leaders as one of the most important moments in human history. They claim that if we do not act on a global level now to stop "climate change" that we will be facing a catastrophic future of unprecedented magnitude.
First of all, let's quickly deal with the ridiculous claims that man is causing global warming. The truth is that "global warming" is caused by the sun. A few years ago when the sun was experiencing record sunspot activity, the entire solar system experienced "global warming". Now that the sun has entered a period of very low sunspot activity the earth (and the rest of the solar system) is actually cooling.
But carbon dioxide levels continue to increase. If carbon dioxide was causing global warming temperatures should have continued to rise.
But they didn't.
In fact, scientists tell us that there have been periods when the earth has had much higher levels of carbon dioxide. It is one of the key components of life. The more carbon dioxide, the better crops do and the more life on earth thrives.
But (Read More....)
On Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 219-212 to pass the cap and trade climate change bill which will fundamentally change the American way of life forever. This horrific law will drive gas and electricity prices through the roof, will cause more U.S. businesses to flee overseas and will usher the American people into an era of climate fascism.
To make this situation even more sad, the Democrats added a 300 page amendment at 3 a.m. the night before the vote, and so there was not possibly enough time for any members of Congress to possibly read the bill before they voted on it.
Most Republicans were firmly opposed to this bill and were calling the measure a "job killer" that would push energy bills through the roof and would drive jobs and businesses overseas at a record pace.
But this cap and trade bill was a top priority for the White House, and Barack Obama spent much of Friday making phone calls trying to drum up support for the bill.
"Now is the time for us to lead," Obama told reporters in the White House Rose Garden. "We cannot be afraid of the future. We cannot be prisoners to the past."
This legislation was also vitally important to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as she had pledged to get it passed before Congress left for their 4th of (Read More....)
