If you have not already seen this, you absolutely must make time to view it. gcblues in Costa Rica sent out the link. The video is called "The Great Global Warming Swindle" and is the best (and the first) really detailed answer to the Global Warming/Kyoto Accord/Strip The USA Of All Its Money/Kiss Al Gore's Ass global warming scare mongers.
There are three major things that I see in this news video from Great Britain that are key to understanding the global warming hullabaloo.
First: Tens of thousands of jobs now depend on keeping this fraud alive and Al Gore in the public eye.
Hence, IT . . . IS . . . ALIVE!
Second: Almost all of the world renowned experts interviewed by the producers of this documentary were former members of the UN's IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change). They either quit in disgust or were kicked off the panel. However, the IPCC still lists each and every one of them as "Participating IPCC Authors". These ex-panel members all say, to a man, that the IPCC is not and was not a scientific panel. It is and was a political panel. They say that the IPCC advertises itself as a panel made up of "the world's top 2500 climate change experts". The documentary's experts, almost all ex-IPCC panel members, say that there are nowhere near "2500 top climate change experts." More like 25. So the IPCC had to fatten up its membership with politicians, bureaucrats, political appointees, your formerly unemployed second cousin twice removed etc. In other words, anything this panel comes up with is most likely crappola.
Third: Al Gore's OSCAR WINNING DOCUMENTARY's strongest and most hard-hitting message and graphic is that Gore claims to show a direct correlation between the atmosphere's C02 (carbon dioxide, cee-yo-tooo) content and global temperature change over the past 650,000 years. Just one little problem: What Gore didn't say was that there is about an 800 year lag between the temperature change on the planet's surface and the increase (or decrease) in C02 (carbon dioxide, cee-yo-tooo) in the atmosphere. In other words, the ice core data used, or miss-used by Gore to ram home his point actually shows the exact opposite. That is, atmospheric C02 content appears to be reacting to global temperature fluctuations, not the other way around.
There is a fourth issue that I think is also important, but I don't list it as one of the three most important because I have heard so much debate about it. That is that the world's oceans are so vast and so deep that any change noted in temperatures in one area or another is most likely a response to a cause some 300-500 years earlier. And, say these scientists, any change in temperature noted in all of the world's oceans, such as is claimed by the Global Warming fear factorists, may be a reaction to causes fully 1000 years in the past.
There is a lot, lot more.
You'll need some time, about an hour should do. Then, if you are truly interested in this subject, and I think that we all should be, you'll want to add the link to your "My Favorites", or whatever, so you don't lose track of it. After all, gcblues and Mark in Mexico aren't going to be around forever to keep you this well informed.
Thanks to gcblues.
