What global warming?

Premier Gordon Campbell plans to tax and spend $1.8 billion, and Stephane Dion $15 billion, over the next three to four years to reduce global warming. Yet they both seem to have neglected a couple of key questions: has the Earth been warming and if it has, is it the result of rising man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) levels?

Interestingly, the two global temperature data sets used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - one from NASA and the other from the UK government - all show a cooling trend since 2002.

Rajendra Pachauri, head of the IPCC, had to admit that no warming has occurred so far in the 21st Century.

Even more interesting, however, is that global CO2 levels have continued to rise. Maybe, just maybe, man-made CO2 has nothing to do with changing global temperatures.

Recent average global temperatures placed in context with global climate history result in better understanding (that temperatures since the industrial revolution are consistent with temperatures prior to the industrial revolution and added atmospheric carbon dioxide has no significant influence on climate). This is done at different time scales with four graphs that were constructed from NOAA and other US government provided data at http://www.middlebury.net/op-ed/pangburn.html. All data source internet sites are given.

There hasn't been any science to back up global warming(man-made). By historical trends, we are actual quite cool.

Al Gore says global warming is going to create mega-Katrinas. Of course he makes that just after Katrina for the emotional affect and hurricane seasons after that have been quiet.

What is scary is the people that hear this crap, still buy into it? When you're just make stuff up, than you know there is something wrong with this theory.

What is even more scary is the reason "why" people believe this stuff. I've picked up on this a while ago, but people hate mankind's achievements. It's scary. People think heating your home, or driving a truck is a big sin.

I can't stand the anti-Industrial Revolution movement.
