Global warming is a fairy tale

How many times must it be stated: There is no global warming!

It is a fairy tale started by Al Gore to make him and his buddies wealthy by buying and selling so-called carbon credits and redistributing wealth to poor countries. Recent exposes of data fudging and omissions of climate records is proof of this non-science and political bias.

The earth has always had warming and cooling over the past eons and the last warming period was near the end of the middle ages when Europe had bumper crops and England grew wine grapes and no oil was in use. The last time there was a consensus of scientists was when the world was stated to be flat! We must have carbon dioxide for trees and plants to make sugars and oxygen or we will all die. We do not have the ability nor science to predict or affect climate change. It is the great heat generator called the sun that produces the energy to change our climate just as it produces sun spots that effect our radio transmissions.

The polar caps are gaining ice and polar bears are increasing per the latest satellite data. The last climate summit in Indonesia, stated that a global cooling trend was occurring. If you wish to make a real contribution to people, put your efforts into helping the victims in Haiti.
