Once in a while one comes across something that illuminates an issue with such clarity that you can't help but admire it. There are probably many of these every day that I am too blind to see. One of these has just come by.
Of all the fraud-based movements crawling around the earth these days, the Global Warming one is one whose willful blindness to the facts, overweening appeal to the emotions of the clueless, and naked lust for power rivals only the equally imbecilic Islamofascists and the sad remnants of the socialist/communist/Marxist/statist/Social Justice blatherskites. But those are subjects for other moments.
Back to the great analyses. In today's Contra Costa Times, Dr. Vlado Bevc has briefly demolished many of the big font issues of the Luddites. His article, Global Warming Nothing But A Paper Tiger, contains such points as
1) Uncontrolled fires in China's abandoned coal mines release as much carbon dioxide as the entire nation of Japan does from useful fuel consumption.
2) The oceans and land outgas 210 billion tons per year compared to 3 billion tons per year from human activity.
Of course, you won't encounter these 'inconvenient truths' in Al Gore's propaganda movie, nor on ABCCBSNBCCNNPBS or the other stooges for this 'movement'.
First off, in the list of propagandists shown earlier I left out a few notable outlets. The first is the BBC - a poster case for the worthlessness of most government programs and why the US Constitution envisioned a very limited central gov ernment, something our British and European friends have not yet figured out. Another example is the US-based Weather Channel which has begun, under its new mis-management a transmogrification into a political pressure operation. Also include MSNBC, to no one's surprise.
Secondly, I neglected the alway-interesting web site JunkScience.com That's an oversight none should make. The site has a good explanation of the matter up and I recommend you take a look at it. Go over to The Real 'Inconvenient Truth'
