ONE of the world's foremost meteorologists has called the theory that helped Al Gore share the Nobel Peace Prize "ridiculous" and the product of "people who don't understand how the atmosphere works".
Dr William Gray, a pioneer in the science of seasonal hurricane forecasts, told a packed lecture hall at the University of North Carolina that humans were not responsible for the warming of the earth.
So blowhard Algore has joined Soviet spy Willi Brandt, Paris Peace Treaty fraud Le Duc Tho, the user of non-greenhouse poison gas in Afghanistan Gorbachev, the proponent of mentally disturbed suicide bombers Arafat, the man who's corruption shamed the UN Annan, the anti-semitic dictator-loving peanut farmer Carter, promoter of the Iran A-bomb El Baradei and fraudulent activist Rigoberta Menchu as the latest recipient of the "We Euro-trash Socialists Dont Like George Bush Peace Prize'. One news article talked about the Nobel Committee's 'courageous decision' as though the committee members are barricaded inside their homes waiting for the violent reaction.The IPCC's report is a joke. Half the names of scientists listed in the report were used without the knowledge or consent of the people they claim were signatories. The data in that and 'Inconvenient Truth' are questionable and in some cases already discredited. But the most hilarious thing to note with all this Global Warming baloney is that nuclear power, a renewable greenhouse-gas-free way of producing as much energy as we will need in the future, is never mentioned by these idiots because their real aim is government control of the economy (aka Global Poverty with them in charge).
In Algore's movie he describes the 'hockey stick' climate graph which proports to show a stable climate since the end of the last ice age and then a spike up in the last few years. This ignores the warmer climate in the time of the Roman Empire, the cooling in the early Middle Ages, the warming in the late Middle Ages and then the Little Ice Age from 1350-1850. Since the end of the Little Ice Age global temperatures have risen 1 degree centigrade, a rise that actually stopped in 1998. No Hockey stick there. It also turns out that there is no relationship between the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and global temperature. The US Weather Service was recently forced to admit that it had placed many temperature monitoring stations in places (on asphalt parking lots for example) that exaggerated temperature readings; the readjusted figures show that instead of the 1990's being the warmest decade of the 20th century the 1930's were.
In the decade or so since this Global Warming Hootenanny started the advocates have piously announced that all scientific argument was over when it wasnt, issued phony and later discredited white papers, presented fictitious computer climate models as unarguable fact,tried to link their critics to Holocaust deniers, opposed funding and academic advancement for their critics and attempted to use this fake panic to implement oppressive, costly and useless regulations on the economies of advanced nations while they've sat silently by and watched the Chicoms go on a crash coal-fired power plant building surge. Their actions are not those of people who are confident that their data and findings are correct and unassailable.
What these people want is an end to the consumerist society, and if that means that the poor people in Tanzania dont get electricity in their mud huts, well thats just too damn bad. Get out of your car and walk, fatso! is their message. Walk to your half-acre plot that you plow yourself so you can go home to your hut and eat a raw turnip and go to sleep when the sun goes down and dream of climate stability. They'll still get to live in their mansions of course, because they care.
Could it be that the fluctuations in global temperature are caused by activity on the surface of the sun? You know, the Big Ball Of Fire In The Sky. Nahhh...
"We'll look back on all of this in 10 or 15 years and realise how foolish it was," Dr Gray said.
