U.S. Senate Report: Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007
Senate.gov ^ | 12/20/07 | Marc Morano

Posted on 12/20/2007 9:06:01 AM PST by NYC Republican

Over 400 prominent scientists from more than two dozen countries recently voiced significant objections to major aspects of the so-called "consensus" on man-made global warming. These scientists, many of whom are current and former participants in the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), criticized the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore.

The new report issued by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee’s office of the GOP Ranking Member details the views of the scientists, the overwhelming majority of whom spoke out in 2007.

Even some in the establishment media now appear to be taking notice of the growing number of skeptical scientists. In October, the Washington Post Staff Writer Juliet Eilperin conceded the obvious, writing that climate skeptics "appear to be expanding rather than shrinking." Many scientists from around the world have dubbed 2007 as the year man-made global warming fears “bites the dust.” (LINK)

This blockbuster Senate report lists the scientists by name, country of residence, and academic/institutional affiliation. It also features their own words, biographies, and weblinks to their peer reviewed studies and original source materials as gathered from public statements, various news outlets, and websites in 2007. This new “consensus busters” report is poised to redefine the debate.

Many of the scientists featured in this report consistently stated that numerous colleagues shared their views, but they will not speak out publicly for fear of retribution. Atmospheric scientist Dr. Nathan Paldor, Professor of Dynamical Meteorology and Physical Oceanography at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, author of almost 70 peer-reviewed studies, explains how many of his fellow scientists have been intimidated.

“Many of my colleagues with whom I spoke share these views and report on their inability to publish their skepticism in the scientific or public media,” Paldor wrote. [Note: See also July 2007 Senate report detailing how skeptical scientists have faced threats and intimidation - LINK ]

Scientists from Around the World Dissent

This new report details how teams of international scientists are dissenting from the UN IPCC’s view of climate science. In such nations as Germany, Brazil, the Netherlands, Russia, New Zealand and France, nations, scientists banded together in 2007 to oppose climate alarmism. In addition, over 100 prominent international scientists sent an open letter in December 2007 to the UN stating attempts to control climate were “futile.” (LINK)

Paleoclimatologist Dr. Tim Patterson, professor in the department of Earth Sciences at Carleton University in Ottawa, recently converted from a believer in man-made climate change to a skeptic. Patterson noted that the notion of a “consensus” of scientists aligned with the UN IPCC or former Vice President Al Gore is false. “I was at the Geological Society of America meeting in Philadelphia in the fall and I would say that people with my opinion were probably in the majority.”

This new committee report, a first of its kind, comes after the UN IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri implied that there were only “about half a dozen” skeptical scientists left in the world. (LINK) Former Vice President Gore has claimed that scientists skeptical of climate change are akin to “flat Earth society members” and similar in number to those who “believe the moon landing was actually staged in a movie lot in Arizona.” (LINK) & (LINK)

The distinguished scientists featured in this new report are experts in diverse fields, including: climatology; oceanography; geology; biology; glaciology; biogeography; meteorology; oceanography; economics; chemistry; mathematics; environmental sciences; engineering; physics and paleoclimatology. Some of those profiled have won Nobel Prizes for their outstanding contribution to their field of expertise and many shared a portion of the UN IPCC Nobel Peace Prize with Vice President Gore.

Additionally, these scientists hail from prestigious institutions worldwide, including: Harvard University; NASA; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR); Massachusetts Institute of Technology; the UN IPCC; the Danish National Space Center; U.S. Department of Energy; Princeton University; the Environmental Protection Agency; University of Pennsylvania; Hebrew University of Jerusalem; the International Arctic Research Centre; the Pasteur Institute in Paris; the Belgian Weather Institute; Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute; the University of Helsinki; the National Academy of Sciences of the U.S., France, and Russia; the University of Pretoria; University of Notre Dame; Stockholm University; University of Melbourne; University of Columbia; the World Federation of Scientists; and the University of London.

The voices of many of these hundreds of scientists serve as a direct challenge to the often media-hyped “consensus” that the debate is “settled.”

A May 2007 Senate report detailed scientists who had recently converted from believers in man-made global warming to skepticism. [See May 15, 2007 report: Climate Momentum Shifting: Prominent Scientists Reverse Belief in Man-made Global Warming - Now Skeptics: Growing Number of Scientists Convert to Skeptics After Reviewing New Research – (LINK) ]

The report counters the claims made by the promoters of man-made global warming fears that the number of skeptical scientists is dwindling.

Examples of “consensus” claims made by promoters of man-made climate fears:

Former Vice President Al Gore (November 5, 2007): “There are still people who believe that the Earth is flat.” (LINK) Gore also compared global warming skeptics to people who 'believe the moon landing was actually staged in a movie lot in Arizona' (June 20, 2006 - LINK)

CNN’s Miles O’Brien (July 23, 2007): The scientific debate is over.” “We're done." O’Brien also declared on CNN on February 9, 2006 that scientific skeptics of man-made catastrophic global warming “are bought and paid for by the fossil fuel industry, usually.” (LINK)

On July 27, 2006, Associated Press reporter Seth Borenstein described a scientist as “one of the few remaining scientists skeptical of the global warming harm caused by industries that burn fossil fuels.” (LINK)

Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, Chairman of the IPCC view on the number of skeptical scientists as quoted on Feb. 20, 2003: “About 300 years ago, a Flat Earth Society was founded by those who did not believe the world was round. That society still exists; it probably has about a dozen members.” (LINK)

Agence France-Press (AFP Press) article (December 4, 2007): The article noted that a prominent skeptic “finds himself increasingly alone in his claim that climate change poses no imminent threat to the planet.”

Andrew Dessler in the eco-publication Grist Magazine (November 21, 2007): “While some people claim there are lots of skeptical climate scientists out there, if you actually try to find one, you keep turning up the same two dozen or so (e.g., Singer, Lindzen, Michaels, Christy, etc., etc.). These skeptics are endlessly recycled by the denial machine, so someone not paying close attention might think there are lots of them out there -- but that's not the case. (LINK)

The Washington Post asserted on May 23, 2006 that there were only “a handful of skeptics” of man-made climate fears. (LINK)

ABC News Global Warming Reporter Bill Blakemore reported on August 30, 2006: “After extensive searches, ABC News has found no such [scientific] debate” on global warming. (LINK)

Brief highlights of the report featuring over 400 international scientists:

Israel: Dr. Nathan Paldor, Professor of Dynamical Meteorology and Physical Oceanography at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has authored almost 70 peer-reviewed studies and won several awards. “First, temperature changes, as well as rates of temperature changes (both increase and decrease) of magnitudes similar to that reported by IPCC to have occurred since the Industrial revolution (about 0.8C in 150 years or even 0.4C in the last 35 years) have occurred in Earth's climatic history. There's nothing special about the recent rise!”

Russia: Russian scientist Dr. Oleg Sorochtin of the Institute of Oceanology at the Russian Academy of Sciences has authored more than 300 studies, nine books, and a 2006 paper titled “The Evolution and the Prediction of Global Climate Changes on Earth.” “Even if the concentration of ‘greenhouse gases’ double man would not perceive the temperature impact,” Sorochtin wrote.

Spain: Anton Uriarte, a professor of Physical Geography at the University of the Basque Country in Spain and author of a book on the paleoclimate, rejected man-made climate fears in 2007. “There's no need to be worried. It's very interesting to study [climate change], but there's no need to be worried,” Uriate wrote.

Netherlands: Atmospheric scientist Dr. Hendrik Tennekes, a scientific pioneer in the development of numerical weather prediction and former director of research at The Netherlands' Royal National Meteorological Institute, and an internationally recognized expert in atmospheric boundary layer processes, “I find the Doomsday picture Al Gore is painting – a six-meter sea level rise, fifteen times the IPCC number – entirely without merit,” Tennekes wrote. “I protest vigorously the idea that the climate reacts like a home heating system to a changed setting of the thermostat: just turn the dial, and the desired temperature will soon be reached."

Brazil: Chief Meteorologist Eugenio Hackbart of the MetSul Meteorologia Weather Center in Sao Leopoldo – Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil declared himself a skeptic. “The media is promoting an unprecedented hyping related to global warming. The media and many scientists are ignoring very important facts that point to a natural variation in the climate system as the cause of the recent global warming,” Hackbart wrote on May 30, 2007.

France: Climatologist Dr. Marcel Leroux, former professor at Université Jean Moulin and director of the Laboratory of Climatology, Risks, and Environment in Lyon, is a climate skeptic. Leroux wrote a 2005 book titled Global Warming – Myth or Reality? - The Erring Ways of Climatology. “Day after day, the same mantra - that ‘the Earth is warming up’ - is churned out in all its forms. As ‘the ice melts’ and ‘sea level rises,’ the Apocalypse looms ever nearer! Without realizing it, or perhaps without wishing to, the average citizen in bamboozled, lobotomized, lulled into mindless ac­ceptance. ... Non-believers in the greenhouse scenario are in the position of those long ago who doubted the existence of God ... fortunately for them, the Inquisition is no longer with us!”

Norway: Geologist/Geochemist Dr. Tom V. Segalstad, a professor and head of the Geological Museum at the University of Oslo and formerly an expert reviewer with the UN IPCC: “It is a search for a mythical CO2 sink to explain an immeasurable CO2 lifetime to fit a hypothetical CO2 computer model that purports to show that an impossible amount of fossil fuel burning is heating the atmosphere. It is all a fiction.”

Finland: Dr. Boris Winterhalter, retired Senior Marine Researcher of the Geological Survey of Finland and former professor of marine geology at University of Helsinki, criticized the media for what he considered its alarming climate coverage. “The effect of solar winds on cosmic radiation has just recently been established and, furthermore, there seems to be a good correlation between cloudiness and variations in the intensity of cosmic radiation. Here we have a mechanism which is a far better explanation to variations in global climate than the attempts by IPCC to blame it all on anthropogenic input of greenhouse gases. “

Germany: Paleoclimate expert Augusto Mangini of the University of Heidelberg in Germany, criticized the UN IPCC summary. “I consider the part of the IPCC report, which I can really judge as an expert, i.e. the reconstruction of the paleoclimate, wrong,” Mangini noted in an April 5, 2007 article. He added: “The earth will not die.”

Canada: IPCC 2007 Expert Reviewer Madhav Khandekar, a Ph.D meteorologist, a scientist with the Natural Resources Stewardship Project who has over 45 years experience in climatology, meteorology and oceanography, and who has published nearly 100 papers, reports, book reviews and a book on Ocean Wave Analysis and Modeling: “To my dismay, IPCC authors ignored all my comments and suggestions for major changes in the FOD (First Order Draft) and sent me the SOD (Second Order Draft) with essentially the same text as the FOD. None of the authors of the chapter bothered to directly communicate with me (or with other expert reviewers with whom I communicate on a regular basis) on many issues that were raised in my review. This is not an acceptable scientific review process.”

Czech Republic: Czech-born U.S. climatologist Dr. George Kukla, a research scientist with the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at University of Columbia expressed climate skepticism in 2007. “The only thing to worry about is the damage that can be done by worrying. Why are some scientists worried? Perhaps because they feel that to stop worrying may mean to stop being paid,” Kukla told Gelf Magazine on April 24, 2007.

India: One of India's leading geologists, B.P. Radhakrishna, President of the Geological Society of India, expressed climate skepticism in 2007. “We appear to be overplaying this global warming issue as global warming is nothing new. It has happened in the past, not once but several times, giving rise to glacial-interglacial cycles.”

USA: Climatologist Robert Durrenberger, past president of the American Association of State Climatologists, and one of the climatologists who gathered at Woods Hole to review the National Climate Program Plan in July, 1979: “Al Gore brought me back to the battle and prompted me to do renewed research in the field of climatology. And because of all the misinformation that Gore and his army have been spreading about climate change I have decided that ‘real’ climatologists should try to help the public understand the nature of the problem.”

Italy: Internationally renowned scientist Dr. Antonio Zichichi, president of the World Federation of Scientists and a retired Professor of Advanced Physics at the University of Bologna in Italy, who has published over 800 scientific papers: “Significant new peer-reviewed research has cast even more doubt on the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming."

New Zealand: IPCC reviewer and climate researcher Dr. Vincent Gray, an expert reviewer on every single draft of the IPCC reports going back to 1990 and author of The Greenhouse Delusion: A Critique of "Climate Change 2001: “The [IPCC] ‘Summary for Policymakers’ might get a few readers, but the main purpose of the report is to provide a spurious scientific backup for the absurd claims of the worldwide environmentalist lobby that it has been established scientifically that increases in carbon dioxide are harmful to the climate. It just does not matter that this ain't so.”

South Africa: Dr. Kelvin Kemm, formerly a scientist at South Africa’s Atomic Energy Corporation who holds degrees in nuclear physics and mathematics: “The global-warming mania continues with more and more hype and less and less thinking. With religious zeal, people look for issues or events to blame on global warming.”

Poland: Physicist Dr. Zbigniew Jaworowski, Chairman of the Central Laboratory for the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Radiological Protection in Warsaw: ““We thus find ourselves in the situation that the entire theory of man-made global warming—with its repercussions in science, and its important consequences for politics and the global economy—is based on ice core studies that provided a false picture of the atmospheric CO2 levels.”

Australia: Prize-wining Geologist Dr. Ian Plimer, a professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Adelaide in Australia: "There is new work emerging even in the last few weeks that shows we can have a very close correlation between the temperatures of the Earth and supernova and solar radiation.”

Britain: Dr. Richard Courtney, a UN IPCC expert reviewer and a UK-based climate and atmospheric science consultant: “To date, no convincing evidence for AGW (anthropogenic global warming) has been discovered. And recent global climate behavior is not consistent with AGW model predictions.”

China: Chinese Scientists Say C02 Impact on Warming May Be ‘Excessively Exaggerated’ – Scientists Lin Zhen-Shan’s and Sun Xian’s 2007 study published in the peer-reviewed journal Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics: "Although the CO2 greenhouse effect on global climate change is unsuspicious, it could have been excessively exaggerated." Their study asserted that "it is high time to reconsider the trend of global climate change.”

Denmark: Space physicist Dr. Eigil Friis-Christensen is the director of the Danish National Space Centre, a member of the space research advisory committee of the Swedish National Space Board, a member of a NASA working group, and a member of the European Space Agency who has authored or co-authored around 100 peer-reviewed papers and chairs the Institute of Space Physics: “The sun is the source of the energy that causes the motion of the atmosphere and thereby controls weather and climate. Any change in the energy from the sun received at the Earth’s surface will therefore affect climate.”

Belgium: Climate scientist Luc Debontridder of the Belgium Weather Institute’s Royal Meteorological Institute (RMI) co-authored a study in August 2007 which dismissed a decisive role of CO2 in global warming: "CO2 is not the big bogeyman of climate change and global warming. “Not CO2, but water vapor is the most important greenhouse gas. It is responsible for at least 75 % of the greenhouse effect. This is a simple scientific fact, but Al Gore's movie has hyped CO2 so much that nobody seems to take note of it.”

Sweden: Geologist Dr. Wibjorn Karlen, professor emeritus of the Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology at Stockholm University, critiqued the Associated Press for hyping promoting climate fears in 2007. “Another of these hysterical views of our climate. Newspapers should think about the damage they are doing to many persons, particularly young kids, by spreading the exaggerated views of a human impact on climate.”

USA: Dr. David Wojick is a UN IPCC expert reviewer, who earned his PhD in Philosophy of Science and co-founded the Department of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie-Mellon University: “In point of fact, the hypothesis that solar variability and not human activity is warming the oceans goes a long way to explain the puzzling idea that the Earth's surface may be warming while the atmosphere is not. The GHG (greenhouse gas) hypothesis does not do this.” Wojick added: “The public is not well served by this constant drumbeat of false alarms fed by computer models manipulated by advocates.”

Background: Only 52 Scientists Participated in UN IPCC Summary

The over 400 skeptical scientists featured in this new report outnumber by nearly eight times the number of scientists who participated in the 2007 UN IPCC Summary for Policymakers. The notion of “hundreds” or “thousands” of UN scientists agreeing to a scientific statement does not hold up to scrutiny. (See report debunking “consensus” LINK) Recent research by Australian climate data analyst Dr. John McLean revealed that the IPCC’s peer-review process for the Summary for Policymakers leaves much to be desired. (LINK)

Proponents of man-made global warming like to note how the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS) have issued statements endorsing the so-called "consensus" view that man is driving global warming. But both the NAS and AMS never allowed member scientists to directly vote on these climate statements. Essentially, only two dozen or so members on the governing boards of these institutions produced the "consensus" statements. This report gives a voice to the rank-and-file scientists who were shut out of the process. (LINK)

The most recent attempt to imply there was an overwhelming scientific “consensus” in favor of man-made global warming fears came in December 2007 during the UN climate conference in Bali. A letter signed by only 215 scientists urged the UN to mandate deep cuts in carbon dioxide emissions by 2050. But absent from the letter were the signatures of these alleged “thousands” of scientists. (See AP article: - LINK )

UN IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri urged the world at the December 2007 UN climate conference in Bali, Indonesia to "Please listen to the voice of science.”

The science has continued to grow loud and clear in 2007. In addition to the growing number of scientists expressing skepticism, an abundance of recent peer-reviewed studies have cast considerable doubt about man-made global warming fears. A November 3, 2007 peer-reviewed study found that “solar changes significantly alter climate.” (LINK) A December 2007 peer-reviewed study recalculated and halved the global average surface temperature trend between 1980 – 2002. (LINK) Another new study found the Medieval Warm Period “0.3C warmer than 20th century” (LINK)

A peer-reviewed study by a team of scientists found that "warming is naturally caused and shows no human influence." (LINK) – Another November 2007 peer-reviewed study in the journal Physical Geography found “Long-term climate change is driven by solar insolation changes.” (LINK ) These recent studies were in addition to the abundance of peer-reviewed studies earlier in 2007. - See "New Peer-Reviewed Scientific Studies Chill Global Warming Fears" (LINK )

With this new report of profiling 400 skeptical scientists, the world can finally hear the voices of the “silent majority” of scientists.

The 2nd thing is in the realm of “believability”, in that it’s a historical story.

But the spherical nature of the earth is an observable fact.

What do you do that your employer feels it necessary to waste money and time (money) on such non-essential training?

Good question. I am accounting manager for a lumber company. The CEO is heavily invested in the idea of sustainability. He wants our corporate culture to reflect that idea. Hence, all of us present at corporate headquarters when the presentation started were instructed to sit in. I am on board with the bosses ideas on responsible forest stewardship but I wish he would draw the line at the kind of hogwash we were fed today.

Is there anything in politics for the general good anymore or is it ALL about money and power.

No my friend, there is not. IT IS ALL ABOUT POWER, MONEY, AND CONTROL. CONTROL over YOU, YOUR LIFE, YOUR MONEY, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR EVERY BREATH, YOUR EVERY DECISION, YOUR EVERY STEP IN LIFE. EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING. It is all about we, the little critters, taking our marching orders from them, the all powerful, the rich liberals, with all the money, the knowledge, the leadership, the know how, the experience. They HAVE IT ALL, and we are simple minded, stupid, uneducated, without any skills. We NEED them. He HAVE to have them make all the decisions. We are TOO STUPID to do these things for ourselves.

That is why conservatives are their sworn enemies. That is why they so hate conservative. Because we can think for ourselves. Because we DO NOT need government and liberals to lead us to the water. Because we actually can make informed decisions when we have the TRUTH. That is why they LIE, and distort the truth and the facts. Because they KNOW we KNOW better and can beat them every time when it comes to a battle of the MIND, THE FACTS, THE TRUTH. They know we will beat them. That is why they hate us, fear us, and want to destroy us. They know we are a THREAT to them and their rule. They know they must smash us into the dust or they will never have their all powerful control.

No, it TOTALLY about POWER. POWER, CONTROL, TOTAL CONTROL over EVERY ASPECT of your life. EVERYTHING, every decision. TOTAL CONTROL. You get to make absolutely NO DECISION whatsoever for yourself. It all has to be APPROVED by them. That is why we have to fight them. FROM MY COLD DEAD HAND, with their rotting corpses all around me.

Hi Matchett-PI! Hello from the east coast.

Do you suppose that anyone who has made up their mind that it is all as ALGORE says, will read through so much information. We need one spokesman that is trusted to tell them the truth...who might be able to do it?

Who could gain by the telling? No one would do it without some form of gain since they will be challenged and made fun of as we all have been.

I wish it were as simple as “Follow the money!”.

For your industry, I could see the need for education regarding stewardship. It is called “CONSERVATION”. Not global warming propoganda. The company that produced that training would love nothing better than to see all lumber companies out of business. How odd.

For stuff like this, which has decent html formatting to start with, I usually

  1. highlight the text of interest
  2. right click
  3. select "View Selection Source"
  4. a second window comes up, with the raw html, and the html source for the selected text of interest is already highlighted
  5. copy and paste the ready to go html from that second window, right into the FR posting.

This is in Firefox -- I don't know about Internet Explorer.

Sometimes I have to fix up Links, if the original used relative links, by adding the rest of the URL (the http://www.example.com/ base) to them. Other than that, the html formatting often comes straight across.

I posted Inhofe`s article in another forum. The AGW fanatics immediately trashed and disregarded it. (what a shock) They said Inhofe`s site is an unreliable source, that Inhofe either misquoted the scientists or quoted them out of context, or if those scientists actually did say what was quoted, they are all flat-earthers and can be and should be ignored.

Albert Arnold “Al” Gore Jr. Orchestrates One of the Biggest Frauds in History

FR Threads: Al Gore | Global Warming | "An Inconvenient Truth" | Live Earth | Leonardo DiCaprio - "The 11th Hour"


Live Earth
The Concerts for a Climate in Crisis
July 7, 2007
FlA says, A movie and global concerts sponsored by ultra liberal liars,
frauds, & corporate moneygrap mouthpieces

An Inconvenient Truth (2006) - ClimateCrisis.net | The 11th Hour (2007) | Live Earth (2007)
There are many Soros Shadow Party and other ultra liberal action group websites spun off the three events.
Interesting these two movies and Live Earth are during ramp-up stages of the Democrats' presidential campaigns.

        Frankly, I've never had a problem with Al Gore. He's entitled to his opinions and there is no law against being ignorant. But when he used Live Earth (“LE”), and it’s global simulcast, to promote the ultra radical MoveOn.org and several other ultra left wing George Soros Shadow Party LE backers, the man lost all credibility and became an enemy of our great Country and the principles it stands for. All the Al Gore LE speeches, along with the liberal fools butt kissing like he was the second coming of Christ, were a disgusting joke. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s LE speech was nothing short of bizarre. The ignorant fool acted like he had rabies. Don’t get me wrong, I though LE has some great performances. I personally thought the Top 5 were, in order (stage), Foo Fighters (UK), Spinal Tap (UK) (exclusive LE reunion), Lenny Kravitz (South America); Keith Urban (US) and Metallica (UK). But I hated the Live Earth fraudulent purpose and message.
        Leonardo DiCraprio tried his hand at an absolute nonsense man-made global warming movie by producing and narrating "The 11 Hour". The extreme borefest and fraudulent movie was released August 17, 2007. The movie earned only $836,047 as of its in-theaters close out date of October 4, 2007, and its widest release was only 111 theaters. By comparison, Al Bore's completely bogus and fraudulent "An Inconvenient Truth" (2006) movie was in a maximum of 587 U.S. theaters during its worldwide 5 month in-theaters run. AIT grossed $24,146,161 in the U.S. and $24,957,008 in international markets, for a worldwide box office total of $49,103,169. Financially AIT was very successful due to its very low production cost.
        Al Gore, like many other heavyweight members of the George Soros Shadow Party (SSP) uses highly questionable causes like Al's movie and Live Earth to raise substantial funds to then funnel to Democratic candidates and other SSP front operations. Al Gore's statement that "the entire global scientific community has a consensus on the question that human beings are responsible for global warming" is outright prima facie fraudulent. Al saying Hurricane Katrina was caused by man-made global warning is scum of the earth criminal. The AIT movie stating that ...."in fact, you can even reduce your carbon emissions to zero" is blatant fraud in the inducement. If Al was an uneducated dumb ass I might understand these incredibly ignorant statements. But he is a very smart guy.
        Does our great Country need to significantly reduce enviromental pollutions along with substantially reduce our oil consumption? Without question the answer is yes and I 100% support all properly balanced reductions based on hard facts, both on a macro and micro basis. But Al Gore and the Democrats~Soros Shadow Party could care less about the aforementioned. All they care about is perpetuating a massive fraud on the public in order to generate huge personal profits and fund Democratic-Soros Shadow Party candidates.
White Paper: Falsehoods in Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth"
- - An Inconvenient Truth” is something you rarely see in movies today: a blatant intellectual fraud. Shame on all of the people involved in this travesty. IAT is a fictional cult drama movie, not a scientific documentary.

FR: Al Gore Causes Global Warming | 02.26.07: Al Gore’s Personal Energy Use Is His Own “Inconvenient Truth”
- - Gore’s home uses more than 20 times the national average. In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.
        Last night, Al Gore’s global-warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, collected an Oscar for best documentary feature, but the Tennessee Center for Policy Research has found that Gore deserves a gold statue for hypocrisy. Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES). In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home. The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.
        Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359. Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006. Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.
        “As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk the walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” said Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew Johnson.

- - Gore’s heated poolhouse burns more natural gas -- $500 a month worth -- than most of us can afford to use while heating houses that shelter people. But Gore has a clear conscience because he claims he purchases "carbon offsets" to make up for his rampant energy use. The life of the hypocritical rich. – READ FULL ARTICLE

10.12.07, FlAttorney says: Al Gore uses his highly fraudulent and public hysteria movie and efforts to co-win the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize along with socialist propaganda Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He and IPCC received the award for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change. The socialist Nobel Peace Prize Committee gave Al Gore & IPCC the award as a slap to Republicans and our American culture and way of life. Further, socialist scumbag and billionaire George Soros personally knows three of five 2007 Noble Peace Prize Committee members. Who knows how much money and influence he gave these political clowns to make this happen. The Noble Peace Prize has become nothing more than a political tool and a disgusting joke. This is why complete frauds and buffoons like Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Kofi Annan, and Yasser Arafat have won the Nobel Peace Prize. Alfred Nobel must being rolling in his grave over the farce this award has become. It was interesting how Fraud Gore made a big deal that he was not going to personally keep the $750,000 he received for winning the prize. Gore then donates the money to his George Soros Shadow Party non-profit organization that Al founded, controls, and is Chairman of the Board being The Alliance for Climate Protection.

12.05.07 - Wall Street Journal: The Science? of Gore's Nobel - - The Nobel Committee might as well have called it Al Gore's Inner Peace Prize, given the way it seems designed to help him disown his lifelong ambition to become president in favor of a higher calling, as savior of a planet. The media will be tempted to blur the fact that his medal, which Mr. Gore will collect on Monday in Oslo, isn't for "science." In fact, a Nobel has never been awarded for the science of global warming. Even Svante Arrhenius, who first described the "greenhouse" effect, won his for something else in 1903. Yet now one has been awarded for promoting belief in manmade global warming as a crisis. - READ FULL ARTICLE

Al Gore's Dubious School Record
By Jennifer C. Braceras, Attorney and Research Fellow, Harvard Law School
- - Abstract: Gore's undergraduate transcript from Harvard is riddled with C's, including a C-minus in introductory economics, a D in one science course, and a C-plus in another. "In his sophomore year at Harvard," the Washington Post reported, "Gore's grades were lower than any semester recorded on Bush's transcript from Yale." Moreover, Gore's graduate school record - consistently glossed over by the press - is nothing short of shameful. In 1971, Gore enrolled in Vanderbilt Divinity School where, according to Bill Turque, author of "Inventing Al Gore," he received F's in five of the eight classes he took over the course of three semesters. Not surprisingly, Gore did not receive a degree from the divinity school. Nor did Gore graduate from Vanderbilt Law School, where he enrolled for a brief time and received his fair share of C's. <> Full Article

The global warmists will go down in history as idiots and fools like the so-called scientists who warned in 1910 that Halley’s Comet would engulf the Earth in cyanide gas.

Unfortnately, it takes History at least a third of a century or so to expose fools.

Even then, the liberal news media will simply refuse to even mention the old foolishness to the new generation and to the tens of millions of older Democrats who will then be panicking about why the U.S. Government is not spending trillions of dollars to prevent the Yellowstone supervolcano from destroying North America.

Here is a PDF copy of Newsweek’s 1975 panick mongering story on the future disaster of golbal COOLING.

"The Cooling World" - April 28, 1975 Newsweek ................ There are ominous signs that the Earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production – with serious political implications for just about every nation on Earth. .........The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it. In England, farmers have seen their growing season decline by about two weeks since 1950, with a resultant overall loss in grain production estimated at up to 100,000 tons annually. ....... "Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects. They concede that some of the more spectacular solutions proposed, such as melting the Arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers, might create problems far greater than those they solve. But the scientists see few signs that government leaders anywhere are even prepared to take the simple measures of stockpiling food or of introducing the variables of climatic uncertainty into economic projections of future food supplies..........."

***********

Journalists have warned of climate change for 100 years, but can’t decide weather we face an ice age or warming

Meanwhile, the liberal news media completely ignores the correlation between solar activity and climate change since you cannot blame the U.S. for it and solar activity can't therefore be used to push their political agenda.

Only 400 dissenters? That’s two planeloads, or one cruise ship full. There is an easy solution, an obvious one, then there will be consensus.

With the recent resurgence of Stalinism, old familiar solutions to problems like this become easy to think of.

Merry Christmas, Al Gore. Only 52 support the GW theory and 400 oppose it. Hmmm.

I’m reading “Blacklisted From History”—an in depth look at Communist infiltration into the US government in the 30’s and 40’s. Ann Coulter used this research as the basis for her book “Treason”. The lies associated with GW are exactly like the Communist lies about the Yugoslavian resistance and Chiang Chi Shek forces—the opposite of reality.

I can only surmise that the “vanquished” communists of the world have gone into the Green movement and the watermelon theory “green on the outside, red on the inside” is true.

even in the days of Chris Columbus, pretty much everybody who knew stuff knew it was round.

I thought even the ancient Greeks knew it was round, estimated the size far better than in Columbus's day, and hypothesized a large land mass on the other side.

I always just assumed the Flat Earth Society was really just a thumb-the-nose gesture at modernity.
