Fear Inducing from Mr. Al Gore

I probably blast former Vice President Al Gore more than anyone else on this site. While my views on the cause of global warming are very neutral, my frustration with this powerful politician is enormous. He has taken the opportunity of the massive tragedy in Myanmar (in excess of 22,000 as I write this) to push his global warming strategy and message.

Trouble In Paradise: Global Warming A Greater Danger To Tropical Species

ScienceDaily – May 6, 2008

A team of University of Washington scientists has been studying the insect population of the tropics and concluded that an increase in temperature could many species at risk of extinction. I give more credence to these types of studies to articles on climate models since, in this case, it is possible to do some true cause and effect analysis as well as maintain a control group. The problem with climate models is that they are simply mathematical equations that are developed by mathematicians and then run on moderately powerful computers.

I wrote about Brazilian ants several months ago. This new study seems to be in contrast to the conclusions of that article. This is not unusual in science that different studies with different techniques results in different conclusions.


I can’t resist showing this Dilbert cartoon

I think that Dilbert cartoons are incredibly funny most of the time. Maybe it is because I have spent much of my life in corporate America and therefore I can relate to many of the story lines.

This episode is on-target with this site. Enjoy. Laugh. Go read other Dilbert cartoons. Have a good weekend.

Weather Channel boss calls global warming ‘the greatest scam in history’

Nature – November 9, 2007

The subject of global warming tends to bring out some fairly strong emotions. Earlier this week, I wrote about Dr. Gray’s opinion that he is being punished by his views. Also, Mr. Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States, has issued very strong challenges to the world and his marketing arm has compared this problem to WW2.

So it is no surprise when John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, says, “It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM.”


Global warming may ‘stop’, scientists predict

Telegraph – April 30, 2008

I am starting to get suspicious whenever I see the phrase “Scientists Predict” in a title or opening paragraph. It almost seems that a scientist’s prediction is a lot like an appendix: everyone has one.

Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences has now predicted that for the next 8-10 years we won’t be seeing any global warming as the IPCC and Mr. Al Gore have predicted (there’s that word again). I am looking forward to other scientists standing up in the next few days to “predict” that this “prediction” is not accurate and that their “prediction” is more accurate.  Anyone have a spare crystal ball?
