    Al Gore to Lead U.S. Into Abyss on Warming

    Thursday, July 10, 2008 11:51 AM

    By: Paul M. Weyrich

    When I was the political reporter and weekend anchor at WISN TV, the CBS affiliate in Milwaukee, John Coleman was our weatherman. He was s strong conservative and was known for his sense of humor. One time it had rained for 30 days straight. Coleman said if it rained on the 31st day he would produce the weather forecast standing on his head.

    It rained.

    He did it.

    Another time the camera opened on a wide shot of a blindfolded John Coleman throwing darts at a dartboard labeled “Hot,” “Cold,” “Snow,” “Rain,” “Sunny,” “Cloudy,” “Fog,” “Drizzle” and so on.


    He had had a string of days when his forecasts had been erroneous. John said “Well, this probably is as good as my forecasts these days.” Coleman went on to be the weatherman on “Good Morning America” for seven years. He began the weather channel with his life savings. He subsequently has forecast the weather in New York and Chicago. Today he says his retirement job is weatherman for KUSI in San Diego.


    In a remarkable speech before the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, Coleman was very serious about global warming as the consummate fraud. He began by saying that we should give credit where credit is due. There is, he said, an intrinsic connection between Al Gore’s campaign for global warming and $4 per gallon gasoline. “It comes down to . . . the claim that carbon dioxide in the exhaust from your car and in the smoke stacks of our power plants is destroying the climate of planet Earth. What an amazing fraud; what a scam.”


    He then recited Gore’s dire warnings: “The future of our civilization lies in the balance. That’s the battle cry of the high priest of global warming, Al Gore and his agenda-driven disciples as they predict a calamitous outcome from anthropogenic global warming.” He said Gore, with a preacher’s zeal, sets out to strike terror into us and our children and make us feel we are all complicit in the potential demise of the planet.


    “Here,” said Coleman, “is my rebuttal. There is no significant man-made global warming. There has not been any in the past, there is none now and there is no reason to fear any in the future.” Coleman went on to say that the climate of Earth is changing. It always has changed. But mankind’s activities have not overwhelmed or significantly modified the natural forces.”


    Coleman explained that through history Earth has shifted between two basic climate regimes: ice ages and what paleoclimatologists call “interglacial periods.” He said for the past 10,000 years Earth has been in an interglacial period.


    That might be called nature’s global warming because what happens during an interglacial period is Earth warms up. The glaciers melt and life flourishes. “Clearly from our point of view, an interglacial period is greatly preferred to the deadly rigors of an ice age . . . Mr. Gore and his crowd would have us believe that the activities of man have overwhelmed nature during this interglacial period and are producing an unprecedented out of control warming.”


    As with Sen. James M. (Jim) Inhofe, R-Okla., Coleman makes the case that indeed we may be in a period of global cooling. He said the data is so overwhelming that even the U.N. had to acknowledge it.


    So now the best thing proponents of global warming can do is to suggest that global warming is taking a 10-year break on account of the absence of sun spots. “If this weren’t so serious it would be laughable” Coleman quipped. He went on to discuss the science behind global warming.


    He has dug through thousands of pages of material and examined complicated math and looked at complex theories. “The bottom line is this: The entire global warming scientific case is based on the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from the use of fossil fuels.


    "They don’t have any other issue; carbon dioxide, that’s it.” At that point he tells Gore and the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, “Your science is flawed; your hypothesis is wrong; your data is manipulated; and may I add, your scare tactics are deplorable. The earth does not have a fever. Carbon dioxide does not cause significant global warming.” From there Coleman presents the scientific data to prove his case.


    It is a remarkable speech. It is posted at www.kusi.com/weather/colemanscorner/19842304.html. Thank God Coleman is in a position to tell the truth. He says younger weathermen are afraid to speak out lest they lose their jobs. Young scientists are similarly afraid of losing research grants.


    He blames the media for wanting a crisis and thus reporting pro-global warming stories. But when 31,000 scientists refuted global warming a month ago the media hardly mentioned it.


    He said that compares to 2,000 pro-global warming scientists on the U.N. climate change panel who claim that the issue is settled. Coleman said when he and others made a presentation at a New York conference of climate change skeptics, the audience was limited to 600 people.


    Every seat was taken.


    After his remarks were posted on the Internet, he received hundreds of e-mails and calls supporting his position. “No, I am not alone. And the debate is not over.” Colman concluded by saying, “If Al Gore and his warming scare dictate the future policy of our governments the current economic downturn could indeed become a recession. Drift into a depression and our modern civilization could fall into the abyss. And it would largely be a direct result of the global warming frenzy.


    "My mission,” Coleman ended, ”in what is left of a long and exciting lifetime, is to stamp out this global warming silliness and let us all get on with enjoying our lives and loving our planet, Earth.”


    Godspeed John Coleman.

    Good Article Bob.

    There really are too many dissenting opinions being silenced by consensus science. For another disturbing case of consensus science run amok read up on the eugenics frenzy in the early part of the 20th century.

    Another good read for any independent thinker is State of Fear by Michael Crichton. It makes many similar points and delves deeper into others albeit with a bit of dramatization.

    A couple of good resources for the "Global Warming!" hoax...The Sceptical Environmentalist - a book by Bjørn Lomborg and check out (among other places - www.youtube.com) the BBC's TV production "The Great Global Warming Swindle". These pin-head environmentalists think that if you don't believe in "Global Warming!"...that means - somehow - that you're in favor of polluting and despoiling the Earth and its resources. Don't believe it... John Wolfington

    The theory that mankind is causing global warming and disaster is just ahead reminds me of the Y2K panic in late 1999. Planes were going to fall out of the sky and the financial system was going to implode according to news at the time. The global warming scare is just another example of how a few individuals and the main stream media like to promote doom and gloom.

    Just remember that 99.934% of our atmosphere is comprised of nitrogen, oxygen, and argon. Everything else including various trace gases, CO2, and greenhouse gases total a tiny .066%. (about 1/16th of 1 per cent). And 75% of greenhouse gas is water vapor. It's just darn hard to get worked up over CO2 being around 360 parts per million or .00036 as a decimal. There are plenty of real issues to worry about rather than this nonsense.

    It is the "big lie" theory in action. Repeat the same big lie until everyone believes it. I heard the Pope talk about it today and even the conservative Southern Baptist denomination has bought into the big lie. Everyone believes that now man is God and can alter the weather on a global scale. It is scary to me. It shows you can fool ALL the people some of the time. Rush had this figured out earlier than anyone else I know of. He saw the old left-wing communists gravitating to the green party movement around the world and knew they would use environmentalism to attack capitalism. Now even the leaders of the church have joined in with the atheist socialists from around the world into believing that we are God and capitalism has to be checked by big government to save us all. Both candidates have bought into the big lie. But it is Obama that wants to take it to the next level to stop our progress and make us go backwards in our expectations and quality of life. Of course, true to liberalism everywere, he will continue to live the good life. As does Al Gore. You have to remember with liberals it is always do as I say, not as I do.

    Watermelons. Green on the outside, red on the inside. As a hunter I like sensible environmentalism. The far left crazies in the movement are going to destroy the whole movement. We need wise use of our resources, not no use.

    I can't stress enough, that folks read Hayek's "Road To Serfdom". This book, first published in 1945, shows how socialism "creeps" into society. People will never knowingly vote for overt socialism.

    However, governments use ruses such as energy, enviromental, and social causes to create government control where none is needed.

    Right now, Federal, state, and local governments use 45% of the GDP, and their results are mostly failure. They are bound by special interests, and nearly unbelievable beaucracy.

    Best,
    Dennis

    The link above is a short article by Freeman Dyson, noted theoretical physicist and mathematician.

    I might mention that water vapor and methane are far more potent "greenhouse gases" than CO2. Water vapor cuts both ways, however. When the solar wind envelops Earth, cloud formation is less than when it does not. Cloud cover, obviously, is directly proportional to cooling; more clouds, less heat retention. The last 10 years have seen a lessening of solar activity compared to the 2 decades previous, and a slight cooling.

    It comes down to solar radiation after all is done.
