Now that the cat is out of the bag it will be useful to begin cataloguing the growing scientific evidence which for some time has been showing that our trucks are not, in fact, changing the weather.
David Deming had a hint of this story back in December.
Back in 2002 there were already reports of Antarctica’s cooling trend.
For the entertainment value: A mocking look at two Chinese scientists who discovered evidence of the trend, back when the “man-made global warming” scam still had the aura of credibility.
Let’s not neglect to give credit to the forward-thinking visionaries at Time magazine in 1974.
Kevin Tapping’s work is showing data suspiciously pointing to the Sun as a possible factor in the Earth’s actual temperature. Good luck selling that one.
Russian scientist Dr. Oleg Sorokhtin of the Oceanology Institute in a report from January also fingers the pesky Sun among other factors for the current cooling period.
Stay tuned for much more on this topic in the coming months, as it will eventually end up in the mainstream press where I predict not every editor is going to be willing to follow the “global warming” true believers over the cliff.
Speaking of which, man can Al Gore not catch a break! He loses the presidential election in a year when the country was at peace and prosperous and the corporate shenanigans which flourished under the Clinton White House had not yet been discovered – and most likely the loss was primarily attributable to his First in Command being a bit of a scalawag. That election should never have come down to 500 votes in Florida.
Then, for his next career move, he hitches his wagon to the man-made global warming hysteria and tours the country warning of bigger, badder hurricanes … right before the hurricanes went on a two-year hiatus. He suffers the indignity of having to defend with a straight face his heavy use of SUVs and private jets because via the carbon-offsets marketplace he has “purchased” exemptions from the rules he wishes to impose on others. He wins a Grammy Award for his amazing picture book (or was it a Golden Globe – I forget) which has now inconveniently been revealed as hogwash. It’s a pretty amazing run of public crashing and burning. Luckily, he is a young enough man to have time for one more act, and I do hope he gets to finish his public career with a Richard Nixon-like image rehabilitation.
At very least, he can start saving all that carbon offset cash and put it into something fun, like off-roading and potato guns.
