I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
Here is a statement from one of my liberal friends that I debate often.
“For the people who do not believe in manmade global warming. World population in 1900 was 1.65 billion people (very few cars, no planes, no trucks, very few coal burning power plants).
Today we have over 7 billion people, with 1 billion cars, hundreds of millions of trucks, planes, and thousands of coal burning power plants globally. Now tell me how burning fossil fuels does not contribute to global warming.”
The original statement is based on (what should be) one of the most well-known scientific fallacies: that correlation implies causation and is simply not the facts but a spin on some.
Some compiled info:
“Most geologists think the world is growing warmer, and that it will continue to get warmer.” L.A. Times 1929
Every Climatologist will tell you the Earth's temperature has been much hotter and colder than it is now.
There was an Ice Age and it warmed up, there was a Mini Ice Age just 500 years ago and it has been warming up ever since. The Industrial Revolution was not around during those periods.
NASA reports because of Solar Flares the Sun is the hottest it has been in over 100 years. There are no cars on the sun.
Global warming is causing ice to melt on Mars. There are no cars on Mars.
Thousands and thousands of studies and experiments prove that more carbon dioxide produces better fruits, vegetables, trees and almost any sort of plant life.
Most of the temperature increase happened before 1940 (Before most carbon dioxide was released by cars and factories)
The hot year of 1998 was caused by El Nino.
Joining the Kyoto Protocol would cost the U.S. approximately $400 Billion every year and would have virtually no effect on earth’s temperature.
April 28, 1975 Newsweek printed an article about scientists predicting doom and gloom because of Global Cooling.
Global Warming Lies and many millions of other people who don't believe global warming is manmade have never received money from any oil company.
Climate models do not take into account water vapor that is 95% of the atmosphere.
The United Nations left out two statements that were supposed to be in the final draft of a paper on Global Warming.
1) “None of the studies cited above has shown clear evidence that we can attribute the observed climate changes to increases in greenhouse gases.”
2) “No study to date has positively attributed all or part of the climate change to man–made causes”
