Here is some more proof, facts and history providing more evidence that the once proud environmental movement has morphed into a den of deceit which is deserving of disdain rather than acclaim. According to Forbes.com, some interesting factual information was revealed by folks looking for the truth, rather than those seeking fame and fortune through subversion of climate science data. This occurred at the 7th International Climate Change Conference in Chicago. Don Easterbrook, professor emeritus, Western Washington University confirmed that global temperatures have cooled over the last 10 years and will very likely continue to cool for at least the next two decades. Don reports that this will be the result of up and down patterns of naturally caused climate cycles. He says that we may be entering a cycle like that which occurred between the 1940s and the 1970s. Remember those reports in 1975 and 1976 when Time magazine and Newsweek were predicting a new ice age?
Richard Lindzen, professor of Meteorology at MIT, is another anthropogenic global warming skeptic who tells us that even the British have come to the realization that the Climate Change Act has decimated their economy. They have come to the realization that they can't continue to damage the business community based on very questionable climate theory. If only we could get our politicians to have that same honest assessment of our own business killing environmental policies from Solyndra to the blocked Keystone pipeline project.
I believe that Roy Spencer, PhD, climatologist and former NASA scientist is of the same mindset. He reminds us that small chaotic fluctuations in atmospheric and oceanic circulation systems can cause small changes in global average cloudiness. Roy says that nothing more is necessary to bring about climate change.
Don Easterbrook informs us that "ice ages" occur about once every 10,000 years and we are due for another one. Brrrrr. Perhaps that is why mansion owning, jet setting hypocrite extraordinaire Al Gore has sold his failing media enterprise to Qatar-backed, Al Jazeera. Can't you just feel the chill as ole Al whooshes by the environmentalist sycophants on his way to breaking bread and making more millions with the middle east oil barons? What's that you say? The most pretentious, vainglorious windbag ever to almost be our president is now worth more than Mitt Romney? How's that for a "do as I say, not as I do", liberal mercenary who feigns disdain for capitalism while prospering from it as few others have!
