Global Warming Tomfoolery (sorry Tom!)

Got this George Will article off drudgereport.com: http://jewishworldreview.com/cols/will1.asp

It's silly to think 30 years ago the scientific "community" was telling us a new ice age is coming, and we are all doomed. I remember my elementary school teachers (from Ann Arbor mind you) explaining we are all doomed from global warming, and we would all die in 100 years. Now, I love a mass hysteria caused by the media as much as the next guy, but I really get sick at the thought that an actual scientist with a PhD can't look at a climograph and realize that the earth's temperature always fluctuates, sometimes intensely. I don't get it, are these guys that into themselves that they can't focus on real demonstratable environmental problems? Maybe if they devoted more of their time to researching fusion power instead of making wild claims in press releases and books we wouldn't be "addicted to oil" anymore. If only the media wasn't full of blockheads who care more about Pullitzer prizes than accuracy (not to mention their bad haircuts).

I think that the thing that's most sad about all of this is so many people just believe what they hear on TV or read in a book.

The real agenda behind the global warming hysteria is the imposition of global socialism. Socialism as an economic system has been thoroughly discredited. That's why the idea that capitalism will self-destruct through a mechanism like global warming is so attractive. The Kyoto treaty would essentially impose government control over the economy. Even worse, it would mandate a depression in America.

The real agenda of the environmental movement is anti-human. They want to hurt and kill people. If you don't believe me, read the first article in the "Environment and Oil" update at www.cdweekly.blogspot.com.

What's wrong with global warming? I could use an extra month or two of summer! :D

Does it really matter if it is real or not? Pollution can't be healthy. I don't really want my kids living in a polluted, meaningless, cosmopolitan wasteland. We need traditional living and values, and those include respecting our ancestors, our family, and our natural world.
