Let’s get this straight. The planet is not warming. Hasn’t warmed since around 1998. Instead, it’s cooling, and scientists say that it’s going to continue to cool for at least the next 20 or 30 years. Some even warn that based on the lack of sunspots evidenced on the sun’s surface, a reliable indicator of future climates, we may be on the verge of another little ice age.
The global warming alarmists assure us that we shouldn’t worry — global warming has simply gone on vacation and will surely be back, hotter than ever, sooner or later.
I’ll tell you where global warming is hiding. It has taken refuge in the computer models where it was first discovered and where it has been since.
We are assured that the alleged warming of our planet is being caused by an overabundance of CO2 — nasty old carbon dioxide upon which nature, plant life, and we thrive.
It’s alleged to hover somewhere in the atmosphere, allowing heat from the sub to penetrate the surface of the earth and blocking it from leaving the atmosphere.
Right now, atmospheric levels of CO2 are skyrocketing, and have been for the last 10 years. That being the case, the earth should be warming dramatically. But it isn’t. It’s getting cooler and has been since around the year 2000.
Those are the facts. Yet Barack Obama and all the global warming crazies gathered around Al Gore want to impose something called a cap-and-trade measure now languishing in the Senate which would cost billions, send thousands of jobs overseas, and put a burden of thousands of dollars on U.S. families, all to prevent something that isn’t happening and can’t happen.
Whom the Gods would destroy, they first drive mad.
