Greenhouse Gasses + Global Warming = Junk Science

March 5, 2007

One of my three readers is a bit left of center, politically. I mention that only because he challenged me on the term “junk science.” Foolish mortal!

By now you’re probably thinking, “Steve, what do you mean by junk science? It’s on the news every day. There’s got to be something to this global warming, greenhouse gasses and carbon footprint stuff if it gets that much news coverage.” Although there is something to it, truth is definitely not that something. I offer the following…

“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”

That bit of wisdom came from Vladimir Lenin. You may remember him as a Russian Communist politician & revolutionary, or the founding father of the “evil empire.” (No, I’m not talking about Microsoft.)

My friend Vilmar alerted me to some on-line surveys aimed at estimating one’s “carbon footprint.” I can honestly say I didn’t expect much of a variance between them. I thought that surely they must be based on some hard scientific formulae. After answering the surveys and seeing the results, I’m more convinced than ever that this climate change business is nothing short of junk science. Don’t take my word for it.

The surveys are located at Wired, Climate Crisis and British Petroleum.

The Climate Crisis web site is dedicated to selling Al Gore’s bogus documentary. It’s a bit difficult to figure out how British Petroleum and Wired Magazine fit into this mockery of science. Perhaps the motivation is some form of economic gain?

“Pat, I’d like to buy a carbon offset”

Al Gore rationalizes his use of ungodly amounts of energy and resources by telling people that he maintains a “carbon neutral” lifestyle by buying “carbon offsets.” Some people might be tempted to give the guy the benefit of the doubt. However, as this article points out Mr. Gore is merely taking money from one of his own pockets and putting it into another. He serves as chairman for the same company he purchases these carbon offsets from.

This is yet another example of the hypocrisy exhibited repeatedly by Mr. Gore. But you do have to hand it to the guy… he’s made an awful lot of money by convincing people that his claims are true, then selling guilt relief in the form of “verifiable CO2 reductions, elsewhere). The only question I have is why do so many people let this con man get away with all the lies?

Then again, his family has been making a living off the misery of others for years. From growing up on a family owned tobacco farm to zinc mining on the family homestead in Carthage TN, Mr. Gore has been anything but friendly to his fellow mans’ health and well being. Now, miraculously he’s transformed into the savior of planet Earth. Rubbish!

Ok, this isn’t about Al Gore. The magnitude of his hypocracy irritates the heck out of me, but I’m no hater. That said; let’s move on to some real science…

Greenhouse gasses and their effect on global warming

The global warming evangelists tell us that greenhouse gasses are responsible for keeping too much heat close to the planet. They tell us that we can and must reduce those greenhouse gasses if we are to keep the amount of global warming to a minimum.

The EU says that with all of its efforts, it is unable to keep the rise in the Earth’s temperature below 2 degrees Celsius. Personally, I never believed they could.

If industrialized nations are the blame for global warming of the Earth, who or what is to blame for the simultaneous warming of the planet Mars?

National Geographic released an article that addresses global warming in very different terms: “…current global warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun” and “the long-term increase in solar irradiance is heating both Earth and Mars.”

Is there another way to explain what NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor and Odyssey missions clearly showed in 2005 — that Mars’ south pole has been “diminishing for three summers in a row?”

No doubt the Russian scientist who dared to reveal his “controversial” theory will have hell to pay for speaking out against the proponents of man-made greenhouse gas doom and gloom for planet Earth. Yet his theory is the only logical explanation of global warming.

Until next time…

    If we go with carbon offsets in order to allow people to pollute (that’s all they do, they do not reduce pollution) I want speeding offsets where I can pay to have an old fogey stay at home and add what would have been their average speed to mine without so I can do 95 MPH without getting a ticket; I want to buy offsets by making donations to MADD so I can continue to drive drunk; I want to buy offsets from drug rehab facilities so I can sell drugs without getting arrested.

    How about this: sex credits: pay someone NOT to have it so you can have as much as you want. Maybe buy some from the spouse before heading out on the next business trip? hehehehe

    ..or this…

    food credits: pay someone to go borderline anorexic (not so much so they die) and then pile on the pounds with no guilt!

    I was wondering if anyone would throw out the BS flag over that one. I’m oh so happy it didn’t take long 😉
