But I don't think he went as far as he could have.

Good article. Al Gore has been rendered pretty useless.
I hope this will mean Barack won't institute the "global waming tax" now.

I only read 3/4th's of the article cause it started hailing like crazy here, so are they saying global warming isn't man made? I see the say scientist but I didn't see any names given out.

They said there is no such thing as global warming, which I have known from the get go.

The polar caps aren't melting, the polar bears aren't drowning, the temperatures have been going down, but of course the "warmists"
say that the current cooling trends are fleeting and by the middle of the next decade (right when both terms of an Obama presidency ends) temperatures will start going up again.

It is SUCH a joke.

It's what I've been saying all along. The earth goes through phases. There were how many ice ages? 3 or 4. Glaciers streached into central Europe. There have been times when there were tropical jungles in the middle of north america. This happened over millions of years. Yes, the climate changes and I'm sure humans living here doesn't help. But, it's the natural order of things.

I do think we would keep trying to find alternate energy sources (ie, wind or solar, etc) but I never understood why everyone panicked to begin with. You can't guage what the earth is doing based on a 20 year time line. 20 years compared to the age of the earth is like a blink of an eye.

The way I look at it, if the earth goes into another ice age or warming cycle, that is the way mother earth cleans house and it's the survival of the fittest. Some species will die. Mammoths died after the last ice age. If humans die, then it's our own fault. We know how to survive in the cold or heat. Believe me there are enough books in any library to teach us and if not, instict will kick in.

But I really don't think we have to worry about that for years and years and years.

Interesting Op-ed piece but I wish he had cited his scientific sources. Otherwise it is just the opinion of the author with a few ancedotal examples thrown in to try and give it credibility. I am all for hearing both sides but there is nothing really to back up his claims. I have heard more respected scientists that back climate change than otherwise. As for complete climate change not happening for years and years it is the worst thing I hear people say. So we should leave our planet in shambles for the generations to come. But anyway, why should we not start the infrastructure change that needs to take place to be a greener planet? Mother Earth deserves our respect.

It gives both sides all the time.

Intersting article. I like it.

I don't know if I believe in global warming or not. It's one of those things that you would have to be a earthy type of Scientist to understand. You would also need lots of information and be a genius at it. These types of things are generally way over peoples head. However, I don't think Al Gore should be knocked because a bunch of questionable scientist got together and decided it isn't happening.

With that said, the world is going to blow up itself before anything. Either that or the moon will finally leave it orbit generally leaving us screwed. lol..Either that or the universe will finally stop expanding and retracting back from the big bang. Yet, I am still guessing that man will be his own destroyer. Not the climate.

The earth should not be taken for granted. That's one thing I am pretty sure about.

I do believe I will be dead before I see any of this happen and since I don't and won't have children. I don't worry about it too much.
