Everything is Caused by Global Warming (600+ links)

Everything is Caused by Global Warming (600+ links)

Christopher Alleva
Dr. John Brignell, a British engineering professor, runs a website called numberwatch. He has compiled what has to be the most complete collection of links to media stories ascribing the cause of everything under the sun to global warming.  He has already posted more than six-hundred links.

The site's stated mission is to expose all the "scares, scams, junk, panics and flummery cooked up by the media, politicians, bureaucrats and so-called scientists and others that try to confuse the public with wrong numbers"  Professor Brignell's motto is "Working to Combat Math Hysteria."

This exercise is not merely a lark to show the abject absurdity of this global warming nonsense. Brignell wrote a great book titled  Sorry Wrong Number, The Abuse of Measurement on this very subject.

Dr. Brignell is accepting additions to the list so if you have any send them along.

What I particularly like are the theories that conflict with other theories, both of which the global warming alarmists firmly embrace.

Well sure. As the earth gets warmer peoples blood heats up. This causes our brains to heat up and not work efficiently. Thus we get stupid.

NO! Killing yourself will cause GW! Leaking methane and noxious chemicals from your decomposing body will eventually reach the atmosphere! Don’t kill yourself unless you expect use a crematorium, but that adds CO & CO2, so there’s no way you won’t contribute to GW. Suggestion: Stay alive and don’t breath out too much CO2.

You’ll notice recently the “scientists” are warning that we must “act fast” to combat global warming. Act fast before everybody discovers the scam and stops throwing money at it.
