Global Warming is Gonna Kill You (If the Hype Doesnt First)

Once and awhile you read an article that just clicks with you. That is the moment you realize why professional Journalists get paid to do what they do, and I just do this because I like the pain.

Take for instance this ARTICLE in the Denver Post about Global Warming. He plainly points out from the beginning that HE is no scientists, but instead quotes real scientists.

Imagine this: THEY DON’T CONFIRM THE HYPE OF GLOBAL WARMING!

No, seriously, two world renowned climatologists go on record with this guy and put it out there that the entire Global Warming hysteria is nothing more than a weather version of the Crop Circles Hoax.

Al Gore (not a scientist) has definitely been heard - and heard and heard. His documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," is so important, in fact, that Gore crisscrosses the nation destroying the atmosphere just to tell us about it.

However:

The only inconvenient truth about global warming, contends Colorado State University's Bill Gray, is that a genuine debate has never actually taken place. Hundreds of scientists, many of them prominent in the field, agree.

Oh, and by the way:

Gray is perhaps the world's foremost hurricane expert. His Tropical Storm Forecast sets the standard. Yet, his criticism of the global warming "hoax" makes him an outcast.

"They've been brainwashing us for 20 years," Gray says. "Starting with the nuclear winter and now with the global warming.

So, what’s the story? Why do so many people want this to be true so bad? Why do they pull out countless numbers and studies and reels of information to prove their right… yet not one single serious scientific debate has EVER taken place?

"Let's just say a crowd of baby boomers and yuppies have hijacked this thing," Gray says. "It's about politics.

Both Gray and Pielke (who runs the Climate Science Weblog (climatesci.atmos.colostate.edu)) say there are many younger scientists who voice their concerns about global warming hysteria privately but would never jeopardize their careers by speaking up.

Bottom line, the writer, David Harsanyi sums it up best:

So next time you're with some progressive friends, dissent. Tell 'em you're not sold on this global warming stuff.

Back away slowly. You'll probably be called a fascist.

Don't worry, you're not. A true fascist is anyone who wants to take away my air conditioning or force me to ride a bike.
