More Proof that Chicken Little is just that April 7, 2006Posted by Administrator in Global Warming, Liberal Hypocrisy.
From Tim Blair:
"Sixty scientists have called on Canada’s Prime Minister to cool it on global warming:
"Climate change is real” is a meaningless phrase used repeatedly by activists to convince the public that a climate catastrophe is looming and humanity is the cause. Neither of these fears is justified."You need to read the rest of it (and another HT to the Anchoress for pointing this wonderful little tidbit out).
I've said many times before that the global warming foofaraw is little more than Chicken Little howling on the part of the Left designed to stir up the Masses into another Hal Lindsey-style "The End of the World is Coming!!!!" frenzy.
And for those witless trolls out there that might then say I advocate for the continued rape of the environment; get a life. We DO need to be good stewards of the earth, but said stewardship needs to be based on facts and truth, not suppositions and blue-sky caterwauling. And the TRUTH in terms of greenhouse gasses cannot be known for decades, if not centuries, as we simply have no way of knowing what is a normal warming/cooling trend in the earth's ecosystem. It runs on a scale of millenia.
Consider this: Our efforts in determining whether we are in abnormal warming trend is akin to having aliens feed a baby and predict from one year's observations what the baby will end up like. Based on normal growth rates for a human infant, a full grown adult would be over 30 feet tall and weigh at least 1500 pounds. That would be the conclusion they would draw, then they would say, "we need to stop feeding the thing, as we know that normal adults only average less than 6 feet and under 200 pounds. We must be doing something wrong!!!
