    Off topic - Global Warming

    This is way off the topic of CC but I know that on other threads we have had some fairly in depth discussion of the Global Warming issue, so I'll see if the mods are willing to put up with it.

    This is an hour long documentary by a British film maker, countering Al Gore's award winning movie. You can bet this one will not win any academy awards, but I think people need to hear both sides of any issue, so here it is.

    The Global Warming Swindle:

    Disclaimer: I have studied enough from both sides of this issue to find my self totally undecided.

    The BIG question about Man causing Global Warming that nobody can answer without sticking their foot in their mouth.

    Question:
    How did the last Ice Age end before Mankind was industrialized and before Mankind in any way polluted the environment? Before any of the rain forests were cut down and before Man produced any Greenhouse Gasses.
    That would also be way before the First Sport Utility Vehicle was built folks.

    Answer:
    The Globe warmed up all by its little old self.
    ICE AGE = Global Cooling - Ace Age Goes Away = Global Warming.
    That has supposedly happened 5 other times in Earth history and before Man was here let alone a polluter.


    One More -

    Why are the Polar Ice Caps melting on The Planet Mars right now even though we have not even really been there yet?

    Answer: Because Global Warming is caused by Cyclical Solar Activity AKA Good Old Mr. Sun.
    And YES the Earth is warming up during an overall temporary warming trend as part of a larger cooling cycle and we are not going to stop it and we're not the cause of it.

    I'll take a look at it, for sure. I have my own opinions on global warming (and on Mr. Gore's motivations), but I probably can't post them.

    Thanks for the link.

    I should say that that does not mean that we're not doing some major environmental polluting that we are eventually going to have to pay some sort of serious price for.

    Like the millions of tons of industrial and radioactive waste that the Russians have dumped into the ocean - where the containers have not burst open yet.
    So we ARE doing some screwing up big time with pesticides and the whole 9 yards of various pollutants but, it has nothing to do with causing Global Warming.

    As I've said before we are in for some very goofy weather shift patterns and strange upcoming natural phenomena...which are also normal but, by focusing our attention on imaginary Global Warming we are shifting our focus away from real environmental issues that we do have some control over.

    So I am not Pro Heavy Pollution but, I am anti Global Warming.

    +1 QK...my wife and I have had this same discussion and after doing some research on our own came to the same conclusions.

    Appears to me, Global Warming is becoming a new humanist religion...if you don't believe, then you are wrong and must suffer consequences for being an unbeliever.

    Also the fact that Al Gore is a CEO or on the board of the company that is getting the Carbon Footprint $$$ paid to it. That is kinda strange? huh?

    Heard that on the radio but, have no facts to back it up.

    i guess i missed the ice age they predicted was coming by the year 2000.

    all through junior high, 1973-76, they said we were gonna freeze, and had all kinds of scientific data/records to back it up.

    what happened? also they're saying global warming is causing more hurricanes.

    if you want some interesting reading, check how many hurricanes/tropical storms occurred in each decade starting in the 1880's up until now.
    you will see it must've been much warmer back then.
