Re: Global Warming Hearings cancelled - due to SNOW
First, you have to admit the news headlines, and that's where I saw it
first, are funny - global warming hearings cancelled due to snow.
Second, who said the scientific community was wrong? I didn't.
I only question the religious fervor with which it is accepted, and
anyone who doubts, questions, or brings up other alternative
views is slammed down as a quack, big business groupie, or liar.
Bush never said global warming doesn't exist. He rightly did not
impose the Kyoto Treaty on America, as the US Senate in 1998
voted to make sure didn't happen. He did question what caused
it, the ramifications of it, and what the best way to deal with
it would be: forced restrictions on the USA, while excusing
the fastest growing (and very polluting) China and India business
Third, few say there is no such thing as global warming. Most who
don't bow at the altar of Saint Al Gore and his film, do so because
they think he is not accurate in the calamity scenario.
There are many scientists who do question the scenarios based
on facts they happily present. Few want to hear it. They are
not saying the globe will not change: cold, warm, etc.
There was a middle ages global warming period, it was followed by
guess what...a middle ages mini-ice age period. Did the wooden
wheel and horses cause that warming period?
Lastly, whatever happened to the Coming Ice Age! Coming
Global Population Boom! Coming Worldwide Heterosexual AIDS Plague!
All Time and Newsweek dire predictions, hammered away at school
to a generation or two. The ice age didn't materialize, it was instead
quickly replaced with global warming in the scientific community;
the global population is growing in some places, only to be countered
by the near zero population growth in Japan, Canada, and most of
Europe; AIDS is a big problem in Africa, and among drug users,
gay men, and that's generally it. In most other nations, it is not.
Still, a good headline - snow cancels global warming meeting.
