Global Freezing in Iceland

The talk of the town is global warming. It is the thousand pound gorilla in the corner, or so we have been told. Global warming is supposed to be responsible for a number of natural maladies including the fact that some poor polar bears could not hibernate. Robert Kennedy wrote a nice piece about the warmth causing flowers to bloom and birds to come out in the middle of winter. He cited this as proof of global warming and said that this should help those who still do not believe. John Kerry told us that all reputable scientists are on board with global warming.

A couple of interesting things happened on the way to the global warming rally. First, Iceland is experiencing thick pack ice the likes of which have not been seen for decades. This is likely to cause a polar bear problem because the polar bears get on the ice and pieces of it break off and they end up in Iceland where they are promptly shot. Not good for an animal that is endangered. Nevertheless, the fact is it is colder there and they are getting thicker ice. Perhaps this will take up the extra water caused by Gore’s melting ice scenario and keep us from being flooded. The coldest temperatures of the year are happening all over and there have been back to back blizzards. Interestingly, some lunatic will find a way to blame this on global warming.

The second thing is that many scientists are bucking the trend and denying that global warming exists. I am sure they do not fit John Kerry’s definition of a reputable scientist, but they have done research and have come to different conclusions.

Dr. Shariv’s digging led him to the surprising discovery that there is no concrete evidence — only speculation — that man-made greenhouse gases cause global warming. Even research from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change– the United Nations agency that heads the worldwide effort to combat global warming — is bereft of anything here inspiring confidence. In fact, according to the IPCC’s own findings, man’s role is so uncertain that there is a strong possibility that we have been cooling, not warming, the Earth. National Post

So this guy says that there is only speculation and hard evidence. He states that the UN’s information is bereft of anything that inspires confidence and says that according to their own finding we might be cooling, not warming. Why do you suppose Kerry’s reputable scientists did not point this out? Perhaps their research grants and jobs would go away if the truth were told. One thing is for certain, there is not enough evidence (in fact there is NO evidence) to support this idea of global warming and it is certainly premature to spend billions of dollars to fix a problem that might not even exist.

Say no to Kyoto and say not to increased spending (and certainly increased taxes to support) for global warming until someone can show proof positive. Let us hear the dissenting voices and let us enter into honest debate without all the politics attached. Let’s get to the truth for a change.

  2. It’s freeze-ass cold here in the D.C. area–one of our severest cold snaps in a decade. I’m waiting to hear that we’re so cold because of global warming. **snerk**

    Global warming is responsible for everything.
