Baby It's Cold Outside

In my chapter on global warming, in "Where Did My America Go?" I outlined all of the scientific evidence I could find that proves man is not responsible for global warming. In conducting my research, I went back to the earliest studies of this phenomenon. All of the evidence that I found proves that the industrial world, as we know it, is only responsible for less than .028% of the greenhouse effect. Which means that 99.72% of the greenhouse effect is naturally caused.

Trees, bushes, grass and all living plant matter need carbon dioxide to survive. They take it in and give off oxygen, which man needs to survive. It is a vicious cycle. Both man and plants breathe and exhale gases that would be self-annihilating. However, we jointly contribute to each others survival. The problem occurs when there is too much carbon dioxide in the air. Forest fires and volcanic eruptions cause most of this. Even if we shut down every factory, parked every car and mandated that every living person on the planet stops breathing there would still be carbon dioxide in the air and global warming.

Carbon dioxide has been increasing in our atmosphere steadily for over 18,000 years - long before the industrial revolution and all of the smoke stacks and gasoline combustion engines were on the scene. Factually, the period known as the Holocene Maximum; so named because it was the hottest period on the planet, occurred 7,500 to 4,000 years B.P. (Before Present).

So why all the fear about global warming? Let us look at the facts. Periods of Earth warming and cooling occur in cycles. This is well understood, as in the fact that small-scale cycles of about 40 years exist within larger-scale cycles of 400 years, which in turn exists in still larger scale cycles of 20,000 years, and so on. Today we are enjoying global temperatures, which have warmed back to levels of the so-called "Medieval Warm Period" which existed from 1000 A.D. to A.D.1350. Since the Earth was evidently coming out of a relatively cold period in the 1800's, warming in the past century may be part of this natural recovery. Actually, according to many climatologists we are starting to enter a cooling period.

So now, what have we seen from the media in the past few weeks? There has been another shift in temperature. Wonya Lucas, is heating up the Weather Channel. As the executive vice president and general manager of the Weather Channel Networks, she has her own theory. She has moved away from scientific forecasting of the weather to a sensational policy of becoming the liberal Medias advocate on global warming.

It is our fault, she claims. She has even gone so far as to call for the expulsion of all meteorologists from the American Meteorological Society if they do not agree with her. I thought Hitler was dead.

The weather channel which debuted in 1982, has always been a respected cable network show. Now it seems that Lucas wants to turn it into another extremity of the left liberal media. I can hear the reports now. It's the administration's fault that the weather is nice in the red states and bad in the blue states.

Actually, the scientific facts are that under President Bush's environmental policies the air in the United States is cleaner than ever before. All of the countries that signed the Kyoto Treaty have higher levels of contaminants in their countries than before the treaty.

In an interview with Media Village, Lucas admitted that, "her reprogramming of the Weather Channel was influenced by her tenure at CNN when that network shifted from presenting straight news to personality-driven programming." It sounds like her personality is that of an ice cube.

Give this some thought. All we hear is that global warming is responsible for all of the hurricanes that occurred in the Southern waters last year that effected Florida and the Gulf Coast states. Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. Here are some questions to think about. If hurricanes form in warm water and the ice caps are melting, why does that make sense? How is it that the oceans are getting warmer? When you place ice in water does it get warmer or colder?

In August 2001, Petr (not misspelled) Chylek, Professor of Physics and Atmospheric Science, at Dalhousie University,in Halifax, Nova Scotia, commenting on reports by other researchers that Greenland's glaciers are melting. Stated,"Scientists who want to attract attention to themselves, who want to attract great funding to themselves, have to find a way to scare the public. This you can achieve only by making things bigger and more dangerous than they really are."

Stephen Schneider, leading advocate of the global warming theory in an interview for Discover magazine said, "We have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we may have. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest."

Now that Lucas and her Weather Channel have gone over to the other side I guess we will be hearing more frightening tales of Global Warming. I know of one friend Lucas has gained over the past few weeks. Does the name Al Gore ring a bell?

I tried to take a survey about what people really think about global warming. I called all of the people I know in Colorado and Texas last week. I could not get through. All of the lines were frozen. As I am writing this newsletter, I am sitting in my home in sunny Lake Worth, Florida with the heat on. You see the temperature outside is 45 degrees.

Now the person who has been yelling "boo" the loudest has been nominated for an Oscar for his movie "An Inconvenient Truth." I wonder if he wins will he turn it down because a large amount of carbon dioxide may have been produced in smelting that golden statue.

Actually, I must admit that I may be wrong. Man may be responsible for global warming, when you consider all of the hot air that Lucas and Gore are spitting out.

And, that is my opinion.
