I completely disbelive the entire global warming hoopla. The following reasons.
The great messenger of this gloom and doom prophecy, is not a scientist of any sort and was proven to be a complete liar when he was running for president. Remember " I invented the internet" my daughter was the first volunteer of the peace corp".
His slide show has many false statements, exaggerations etc that have been proven to be wrong.
We have zero quantitative data on what the temperatures of the earth were like 1000, 2000 5000 10000 plus years ago. we have only been able to accurately measure the temperature for the last 150 years.
While we do not have quatitative data on the earths average temp we have historical data showing that periods of warmer temps in europe. benefitted society. (they used to be able to grow wine grapes in England, but can't now because it is too cold and wet. )
Statements they make about global warming: Polar bears are dying because all the ice is melting away. Nonsense. Bear populations have increased every year since the 50's when they started counting. thay have increased something like 5 fold on 50 years.
the antarctic ice all all melting: OK so it is. how thick was the ice 200 years ag, or 500 or 1000 years. you have no idea.
ice melts, and ice reforms.
Last point: the attitudes about global warming: If you disagree with this THEORY. you are labeled an idiot, a nut, an insensitive polluter who just doesn't care about the earth!!
the whole warming thing is just a THEORY! a very unproven THEORY!
The enviro types act like this stuff is just gospel and were all to blame.
OK I'm going to go drive my large carbon emitting vehicle now...
Make more greenhouse gas..
Say, does anyone remember the whole world Ice Age deal we all went through in the 70's? Whern't we all going to freeze to death by now?
Something about the whole earths temp dropping for a few years back then? What ever became of that?
