Despite Al Gore's Oscar winning dream of melting ice caps, a movie from which he portrays an epic scene showing the Antarctic ice shelf breaking up and virtually disintegrating in front of our eyes, his inconvenient lie is stifled by the Nobel Peace Prize he was awarded. The fact is Al Gore stole that footage from the fictional movie "The Day After Tomorrow" and used it to enhance fear in his documentary. The problem is the scene in that movie wasn't filming real ice. It was Styrofoam. Enhanced with time-consuming digital effects, it was all fake. I suppose, however, I'd have done the same thing if I were creating a movie about Global Warming, only to realize half way through and millions of dollars later that this climate change is part of a normal cycle that's been going on for millions of years. Others suggest the real reason alternative energy gained steam was that old-fashioned energy got too expensive.
The fact is the Earth has had huge climate shifts with extreme warmth and extreme cold long before man could have possibly had any impact on the earth's climate.
That's right, you read it correctly, the earth naturally goes through periods of warming and cooling. So why do so many environmentalists believe protecting the environment means keeping certain environmental conditions exactly the same, even though the Earth and its ecosystem are constantly and naturally evolving? Apart from the staunch, selfishness from desiring ultimate power over nature, money is a greater incentive and driving force. So much that inconveniently telling a lie isn't much of a problem for the theologist, Al Gore. He is after all an expert at making people feel guilty every time they exhale, spewing harmful CO2 into the atmosphere. Flying around the world in his personal jet, it's easy to imagine him thinking, "You sinners! How dare you take deep breaths! Give me your money or else cause the Earth too much warmth." Leaning to one side of his seat in his jet, he farts, softly chuckling while he checks to make sure nobody noticed his smug. The sinner.
Contrary to the notion set by those who want to keep a certain level of orderly panic, spreading rumors of doom and gloom for the earth's global temperature, more notable sources suggest that "all four major global temperature tracking outlets have released data showing that temperatures have dropped significantly over the last year." California meteorologist Anthony Watts says the amount of cooling ranges from 65-hundredths of a degree Centigrade to 75-hundreds of a degree. This is said to be a value large enough to erase nearly all the global warming recorded over the past 100 years. “I believe that our [man-made] contribution [to climate change] may be far less than has been postulated. Our measurement network has been compromised—not intentionally, but accidentally and through carelessness,” he said.
Other scientists contend the cooling is the result of reduced solar activity — which they say is a larger driver of climate change than human-made greenhouse gases. This makes sense too, considering the sun’s magnetic field affects the Earth’s magnetic field, in turn affecting how radiation permeates our atmosphere. “So that’s why I believe the sun is more of a driver than people think,” Watts said. “The amount of power associated with the sun’s magnetic field, the Earth’s magnetic field, is really beyond our comprehension. It is a much, much larger thing than what we can produce in terms of energy to change ourselves."
This isn't to say skeptics of human-made global warming are not pro-green: Watts lives in an Energy Star-rated home with solar panels, and during his term on the school board he pushed for the solar panels that now generate clean power at a local elementary school. He further exemplifies this by saying, "I’m for removing pollutants from the atmosphere, but I’m skeptical about CO2 as the main driver for climate change.” Furthermore, Watts adds, “I believe it’s a factor, but I don’t believe it’s a main one.”
Interestingly, Canadian scientists are seeking additional funding for more and better “eyes” with which to observe our sun, which has a bigger impact on Earth’s climate than all the tailpipes and smokestacks on our planet combined. They’re worried about Global Cooling, not Global Warming. This brings me to my next point, if Global Warming is caused by humans, then this Global Cooling movement must intrinsically be the fault of humans going too green. Where are all of the hummers driving on the streets when we need them most? This snow must go!
I blame Global Cooling on everyone going too green; because, afterall, if we over-exaggerate this movement and push too little amount of precious CO2 into our atmosphere, we are cooling our planet down! This must stop, or else we will surely push our planet into another ice age quicker than one can say "I drive a hybrid, thaaaaaanks!" Without even realizing it, this smug is causing the globe freezing issues, depriving Earth of its natural oxygen, and killing the Sun's ability to warm up our cold planet. The tree's truly must hate us now.
While a Hoover Institution Study a few years back says that “try as we might, we simply could not find any relationship between industrial activity, energy consumption and changes in global temperatures.” I say bah! This is an outrage, it is a lie to carefully cover up a fib from which this going-green movement is thrusting our planet into another potential ice age. The study concludes that if you shut down all the world's power plants and factories, "there would not be much effect on temperatures." Likewise, if we do produce more factories for oil and gas, then our planet may finally heat back up to more normal levels; thus, allowing our human-made harmful global cooling affects to halt these record cold temperature levels we continue to see dooming our planet. If evidence to you suggest we can cause Global Warming, then surely we can cause Global Cooling.
Do you see how rediculous it is to argue this, let alone jest at the idea of human-caused "global cooling?" If you're a strong critic for Global Warming caused by humans, then you must believe we can cause Global Cooling. Which is counter-productive to the theory suggesting CO2 is the main driver for causing Global Warming. If this is you, it might be a good idea to reconsider the message it is you're attempting to fear others into believing. You're not fooling Earth, nor the Sun, you're only fooling yourself. But if it makes you happy handing Al Gore a portion of your paycheck to thank him for his smug, his fake movie, then be my guest. My take is that you'll see your money go to a better cause by donating to NASA, or just as beneficial, donate to help further stem cell research. The best part about donating to either research, there's no smug required.
