Al Gore Should Admit To Global Warming Hoax


Sent to you by John via Google Reader:


via American Conservative Daily by Carl Andrews on 10/11/09

For years, former Vice-President Al Gore has used his need to keep himself in the public eye to create havoc all across the world.

Perhaps it is bitterness over his failed Presidential aspirations that make him continue with his farcical theories.

And I am still amazed at the number of otherwise seemingly rational people who take as gospel the claims of a man with no scientific training.

When the local television metorologist can't get the next day's forecast correct half of the time, why do people even listen to Al "the sky is falling" Gore?

And I'm not the only asking that question:

What happened to global warming?

This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998.

But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.

And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.

So what on Earth is going on?

Climate change sceptics, who passionately and consistently argue that man's influence on our climate is overstated, say they saw it coming.

They argue that there are natural cycles, over which we have no control, that dictate how warm the planet is. But what is the evidence for this?

During the last few decades of the 20th Century, our planet did warm quickly.

Sceptics argue that the warming we observed was down to the energy from the Sun increasing. After all 98% of the Earth's warmth comes from the Sun.

But research conducted two years ago, and published by the Royal Society, seemed to rule out solar influences.

The scientists' main approach was simple: to look at solar output and cosmic ray intensity over the last 30-40 years, and compare those trends with the graph for global average surface temperature.

And the results were clear. "Warming in the last 20 to 40 years can't have been caused by solar activity," said Dr Piers Forster from Leeds University, a leading contributor to this year's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

But one solar scientist Piers Corbyn from Weatheraction, a company specialising in long range weather forecasting, disagrees.

He claims that solar charged particles impact us…Read the rest of this entry
