I used to wonder why so many gullible people have jumped on the global warming bandwagon.  Then, it dawned on me.  Primarily, it’s because they’re getting half of the story.  If the general pulic is fed doom and gloom that the sky is falling, eventually everyone in the barnyard will be parading to see the king demanding that he stop the falling sky by whatever means necessary.

Where are the news stories, in print and on network TV…covering all the scientists who claim global warming is just hogwash?  The media simply ignores ’em.  As a consequence, only one side is spoon-fed to the general public.  According to the latest Gallup poll, Americans generally believe global warming is real and it’s all caused by mankind.  And why not?  That’s all they’ve heard and read about.

Over 70 scientists were speakers at the 2009 International Conference on Climate Change last week in New York.  You didn’t read or hear about it, did you?  And yet, one of the speakers was retired astronaut Harrison Schmitt, who walked on the moon during the Apollo 17 mission.  He said scientists are being intimidated if they disagree with the idea that humans are causing global warming.  He says he’s seen “too many colleagues lose grant funding when they haven’t gone along with the so-called political consensus that we’re in a human-caused global warming.”

Besides the scientists at the conference, more than 650 scientists worldwide have expressed skepticism, but their skepticism simply doesn’t make a good news story.  Doom and gloom sells.  And as we will all see down the road, it also generates money…lots of it…but not FOR you.  FROM YOU!

The former astronaut said the “global warming scare is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision making.”  The President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus calls manmade global warming “a myth.”  He calls the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change a group with a “one-sided political agenda.”

Ah, but Senator John Kerry made the news over the weekend by warning that “deferring potentially costly actions to combat global warming because of the economic slump amounts to a suicide pact.”  However, Patrick Michaels, research professor of environmental sciences interviewed by NewsMax says “It’s amazing how many BIG-MOUTH global warming alarmists get media attention who were never trained as climatologists.”

As the late Paul Harvey used to say “…and now you knw the est of the story.”  Unfortunately, the general public DOESN’T know the rest of the story.  The mainstream media, politicians, and big-mouth global warming alarmists are seeing to that.

  1. An added note regarding “The Rest of The Story.” Al Gore was invited to debate (with real scientists). He declined, saying “It’s silly to debate global warming. The science is settled.” Apparently not among all scientists.

    Then too, Al Gore added a series of photographs to his public talks about global warming. The photos and graphs were of disaters that’ve occured recently for which he attributes to global warming.

    He has since removed those photos and graphs after being admonished and sharply criticized by Roger A. Pielke, Jr, a political scientist of University of Colorado who pointed out that none of the disasters Gore was promoting had anything to do with global warming.
