Global Warming Theory is Suspicious

All right, here we go. Take a deep breath and step back from the fray for a minute and let's look at some of the evidence being thrown our way from the Global Warming crowd.

There certainly is rudimentary evidence out there that the weather has changed over the last few years and maybe even gotten warmer. But the correlation between a seemingly warmer trend and man made catastrophe is certainly not established.

A main point to consider though is the suspicious nature of the debate itself. This discussion reeks of corrupt politics. Consider the following points:

1. Al Gore as the Global Warming Messiah

This is a very ambitious guy that has been crusading against industry for a long time. His book Earth in the Balance (1992) suggested that we phase out the internal combustion engine. From the book:

"We now know that their cumulative impact on the global environment is posing a mortal threat to the security of every nation that is more deadly than that of any military enemy are ever again likely to confront. ... I support new laws to mandate improvement in automobile fleet mileage, but much more is needed. ... it ought to be possible to establish a coordinated global program to accomplish the strategic goal of completely eliminating the internal combustion engine over, say, a twenty-five-year period...." (page 325-326)

Yikes, the internal combustion engine is more "deadly then that of any military enemy". Honestly, I have no problem with with a replacement, environmentally friendly engine. But blaming a piece of hardware that has been the centerpiece of prosperity helping build the greatest standard of living the planet has ever seen seems to indicate another agenda to me. But then I am suspicious by nature.

Without completely rehashing the recent reports of Al Gores personal power usage he has certainly defined the Global Warming crisis as a problem that does not affect him personally. If I thought that civilization, as we know it, were ending, I believe I would be able to make a few sacrifices. Al is not willing to do this. I think that is very suspicious.

He has also help form a company called Generation Investment Management LLP. If the Global Warming crusade of his is a success he stands to make money. A lot of money. Huge amounts of money. Suspicious?

2. The UN involvement in Global Warming

Wow. The UN wants to be at the center of the Global Warming debate. The largest gang of global criminals and terrorist supporters ever assembled is spearheading the scientific interpretation of the planet's changing weather. The latest report out of the UN calls for a 4% global tax on all energy consuming sources. Now you know. The reason the weather is changing is because the UN does not yet have the global tax system they have been trying to implement for a very long time.

Let me see if I have the logic correctly.

  • The planet's weather may be changing.
  • The solution to "fix" the changing weather is to pay the UN enormous sums of tax money.
  • The UN is a legitimate source of information concerning the changing weather.
Again, maybe I am just an overly suspicious individual. The money will probably only be used for good?

3. The Lies

The polar bears stranded on ice bergs has been exposed as a lie as to its conclusions. The famous photo was taken 2 1/2 years prior to its use showing some polar bears playing on an iceberg within swimming distance of the shoreline. It was later released, the day after the UN put out another dire Global Warming prediction, and then used as propaganda by Al Gore. If Global Warming is real why do we have to be told lies to get us to accept it?

Mark Albright, Washington’s assistant state meteorologist, was fired from his job for telling the truth. When Seattle's mayor wrote a factually incorrect column about the snow levels on the northern Cascade Mountains, he was corrected by this now unemployed meteorologist. Read a great recap of the story here. Hey, why listen to a meteorologist when you can get a scientific view from the mayor.

This is just a small list of lies to get you started, and hopefully arouse suspicion. Here's a nice paper on some more false information being spread on global warming.

4. Scientific Consensus

You have heard this over and over again. There is scientific consensus about man made Global Warming. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

A great example of this exaggeration is Naomi Oreskes's (professor of history) paper in the journal Science. She claims to have analyzed 928 abstracts on global climate change and 75% of them purport to acknowledge that Global Warming is a man made event. An analysis of her work by Benny Peiser (Faculty of Science at Liverpool's John Moores University) "discovered that just over a dozen explicitly endorse the "consensus," while the vast majority of abstracts does not mention anthropogenic global warming".

Just over a dozen? Out of 928? Consensus?

Benny Peiser continues "An unbiased analysis of the peer-reviewed literature on global warming will find hundreds of papers (many of them written by the world’s leading experts in the field) that have raised serious reservations and outright rejection of the concept of a "scientific consensus on climate change."

Read the link from Wikipedia for more suspicious behavior on this scientific consensus.

There is much more suspicious activity out there. The media's one sided behavior, suppression of information by scientists that disagree, the quick switch in the 70's from Global Cooling to Global Warming, and much more. I say examine the messenger carefully. They seem to be suspicious to me.


  1. Interesting. I had a geologist professor in college who gave us her theory about this and she basically thought that it was just an earth cycle and there was nothing to do to change it.

    I tend to agree with her.

  2. angie h...amazingly enough there is an incredible amount of scientific evidence that the temperature of our planet is determined by .....are you ready for this?

    The Sun.

    It certainly seems plausible to me.

  3. I watched "An Inconvenient Truth" on a dare, and I'm actually glad I did. If would have been more aptly named "An Inconvenient Tribute to Myself". It was nearly devoid of science.

    How people can look to Al Gore as an authority in the man-made global warming debate is beyond me.

    But somehow he is like their messiah, and all the UN scientists are the paid ministry of the new world religion.

  4. frank s...Al Gore is the ultimate traveling snake oil salesman.

    He travels around the globe living a lifestyle that he is traveling around the globe preaching against.

    And he sure stands to rake in a lot of cash....

  5. Who cares why it is happening. It is happening. To ignore that fact is foolish. Historically the earth goes through extreme climate shifts and the evidence shows it is beginning another cycle. To ignore the consequences is crazy - this is not a local issue.
