So Fake It’s Real: Global Warming is Reality TV for the Media Elite

Therefore, the earth has had a few ice ages where carbon content has been low. And then there has been high carbon content and the temps increased and the glaciers receded. All without human beings even smoking a cigarette or lighting a fire. Climate change, or global warming if you will, does occur. The issue is whether it is occurring again and if human behaviour will matter. First, to take a 16 year period and extrapolate a general rule that the globe is heading for a fevor like Mercury is a fallacy of logic. The earth is millions of years old and it is just silly to take a 16 year period and say we are doomed. Equally, true is that the last 16 years don't tell us much. Heck back in the blizzard of 1978, (cont)

The oceans get warmer and can't hold as much CO2 in solution.

Go to the public library and borrow Al Gore's Inconvient Truth movie. Look carefully at the graph of temperature and CO2 versus time. Note that temperature leads CO2 by about two hundred years. Therefore, the question should be why does increased temperature cause increased CO2 levels.

Carbon has NOTHING to do with Temperature ! ! !
CO2 levels have been north of 700 ppm during Ice Ages . . .

CO2 like nobody's business. They represent nearly 1/2 of the global population. What is 300 million going to do? Not much. But, paying off ones political buddies in solar and wind does help bundle money for campaigns. Cap and Trade is the libs answer. Yet, in England, it has been instituted for years and has not reduced one emmission (the greenies are unhappy), but it has brought in a ton of tax revenue for liberal spending projects.
At bottom, global warming is a political farce to make certain people rich (Al Gore), get others grants, and tax us for liberal spending priorities.

we were told that a new ice age was coming. Look, core samples from Antartica show that the middle ages were warming on average then now. It simply is impossible to extrapolate any long term conclusions from the sample.
Second, Mount St. Helens spewed more carbon into the air than a 100 years of industrial emmissions in the US. Even assuming there is warming, again, there is no way to know if it is natural or due to human behavior. There are other factors as volcanoes and the cycles of the sun that are never talked about or taken into consideration let alone the history of the planet.
Finally, even if the entire theory is true and man can affect the global climate, then why should the US wreck its economy while China and India belch (cont)

Here’s my challenge to all the global warming apologists:

Explain to me why the “settled science” of global warming has to manipulate headlines to make information appear scarier and more threatening than the actual data shows.

If global warming is so settled, why do you and your friends take the opportunity to exaggerate, obfuscate and slant every piece of news that comes out to make it seem relevant to today?       

You can see an example of this in the headlines below:
