The rumor mill is rife with the possibility – denied by White House press secretary Tony Snow – that President Bush may be set to reverse course and lay out a completely new “compassionate conservative” agenda for global warming. If this is the case, it’s probably because after January 2009, W. will be hanging up his address plaque somewhere other than 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC.
Global warming is one of the biggest science scams to hit popular culture since Al Gore floated the idea that he personally invented the Internet. Strangely enough, the former Vice President is behind a lot of the global warming myth as well.
Even by the most conservative estimates, Earth is 6,000 years old and most scientists believe it’s millions and millions and millions of years old. Weather patterns that take hundreds, if not thousands, of years to go through are not only possible, but likely. In fact, a recent Harvard study – the most comprehensive of its kind – indicates this is the case and even supports the idea that we’re coming out of a period of global cooling, as well as the idea that as recently as the 1600s or so, global temps were far above what they are now and the world didn’t exactly end.
But don’t let facts stand in the way of panic merchants and scientists striving to protect their federally-funded research. Far be it from anyone to admit that there’s not a crisis, when only crisis-fueled research pulls in the grant money that employs all these panic-pushers… and Al Gore, who any day now should be announcing that he’s the one who created the Earth in seven days, not that glory-hound, God.
Stay the course, W! Global warming is a myth, even if the honest scientists to have the proof are repeatedly muzzled by the vested-interest global warming researchers who want to keep their jobs and their federal grant money flowing in unabated.
