Global warming: Reasons why it might not actually exist
Telegraph.com.uk ^ | Dec. 30, 2008

Posted on 12/30/2008 6:31:03 AM PST by PROCON

2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved, according to the Telegraph's Christopher Booker. Sceptics have long argued that there are other explanations for climate change other than man-made CO2 and here we look at some of the arguments put forward by those who believe that global warming is all a hoax. Temperatures are falling, not rising

As Christopher Booker says in his review of 2008, temperatures have been dropping in a wholly unpredicted way over the past year. Last winter, the northern hemisphere saw its greatest snow cover since 1966, which in the northern US states and Canada was dubbed the "winter from hell". This winter looks set to be even worse.

The earth was hotter 1,000 years ago

Evidence from all over the world indicates that the earth was hotter 1,000 years ago than it is today. Research shows that temperatures were higher in what is known as the Mediaeval Warming period than they were in the 1990s.

The earth's surface temperature is not at record levels

According to Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies analysis of surface air temperature measurements, the meteorological December 2007 to November 2008 was the coolest year since 2000. Their data has also shown that the hottest decade of the 20th century was not the 1990s but the 1930s.

2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved,

Which explains why a "financial crisis" had to be created in order to increase the power of government -- AGW had failed as a pretense.

Global Warming Taxing is a much better description, and yes that does exist.

So if it ends up that we are going into a mini ice age, will the global warming, oops I mean climate change fanatics then turn around and blame it on man made pollutants?

Disproving the existence of the Global Warming Hoax is like disproving that the color of the sky is purple with yellow polka dots.

It was an obvious LIE from the beginning.

In a better world, such nonsense would be simply ignored.

Whatever it takes to control economies and the people. When there is no real problem, invent one.

Time to seriously start the class-action against Algore for his global scam.

Nothing "mini" about this Ice Age. In all the previous interglacials, it gets real hot at the end, reaches a peak, and then plummets like crazy right back down to glacial period temperatures.

You saw the "peak" somewhere in the 1930 to 1999 period ~ so it's all over.

Time to talk to Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and some other places about "living space" ~ whether they like it or not.

You just put the words “Al Gore” and “genius” in the same sentence. Surely you jest?

He is a genius. Do you know how much money he made off of this scam; perfectly legally? I’d sell my credibility for a few hundrd million.

Not only is he a genius with his scam, but he’s got a lot of “scientists” like Dr. Heidi Cullen of the Weather Channel and the rubes who run the Discovery Science Channel (Inconvenient Truth was on the other night) believing it.

John Coleman, the founder of the Weather Channel and former WLS-TV (ABC) metereorologist, says it’s all bunk and I’d be more inclined to believe him than clowns like Gore, Cullen et. al. (including the Science Channel and now Planet Green Channel).

Back in 1954 the government paid to have a box installed right next to a volcano in Hawaii; evry year since they have been checking to see how much carbon has been deposited in it.

It currently holds roughly 30% more than when new.

Either we are putting more in the box each year or somebody is failing to clean the box.

This one box is the sole justification for all the theories and all the noise.

The rest is just a Pollock tapestry woven lovingly by busy hands.

“In a better world, we wouldn’t need FreeRepublic.”

IMHO, we are less than 2 years from the complete tossing of the Constitution and BoR, and conversion to a socialist state. This will happen unless we act and act fast, hard, strong and with the force necessary to ensure success.

I do not advocate the overthrow of the government, only those responsible for the government overthrow of the citizenry!

Professor,

There is no obvious meaning to your post so what is the hidden meaning?

Carbon in a box?

So?

Can you show a scientifically undertaken (scientific method of study) showing a direct and certain correlation of GW and CO2? I suggest a number of possible factors have changed in those years. Besides, the earth has been here for at least 250 years, I think, and 52 years is nothing.

Wise cracks aside, there are so many factors influencing GW/GC that to only look at one is ridiculous.

Uh, Gore may have made money as a by-product, but it wasn't his own doing. He was a tool for other scammers (starting with Enron and continuing with Goldman Sachs, et al). The scratch Gore got is small potatoes compared to the their take. Seriously, the guy's not bright enough.
