'Truth About the Global Warming Hoax’ heats up RWC monthly lecture series.
Is global warming an inconvenient truth, or a “flavor of the month” fraud used as a massive and successful fund-raising tool?
According to Dr. Stefan Gorzula, a consulting ecologist and management specialist, it’s the latter, despite the evidence supplied by most mainstream scientists.
“That’s essentially what this entire scare of global warming and climate change is about,” said Gorzula, who spoke to about 65 men and women attending the Republic Women’s Club of Clifton lecture series on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
According to Gorzula, his dose of “common sense,” is an antidote to the “fear-mongering and media hysteria” over the hot-button global warming issue. “It’s also probably why I didn’t get invited back to speak at George Mason University’s Earth Day lecture,” he told the crowd, drawing laughter.
“I thought he was fascinating and engaging,” said Alice Butler-Story, vice president of members for the RWC. “It’s an issue where we need to hear both sides.”
“We wanted to have him as part of our lecture series, because our series is about getting information straight from the source about climate change instead of getting it (filtered) from the media, where you don’t get the full story,” said RWC president Lin-Dai Kendall, who presides over 105 members and the fastest-growing Republican women’s groups in Northern Virginia.
Andrew Schaaf of Clifton, who attended the lecture with his wife and two children, said he was particularly interested in hearing Gorzula’s comments. “He goes against the conventional wisdom, and talks about issues like politically-correct corruption,” said Schaaf.
According to his website http://www.his.com/~mesas/gorzulaaddress.htm
Gorzula has 36 years of experience in river basin management, wildlife conservation, environmental and social impacts of development projects and environmental legislation. He has spent 24 years living and working in developing countries in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. He currently lives in Springfield.
He is a member of the Crocodile Specialist Group of the IUCN. On behalf of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), he has carried out surveys and developed management plans for caimans, boas and anacondas in Guyana and pythons in Ghana
“Climate change and global warming are topics that should be treated with extreme caution,” he said, adding that the “short-term fluctuations" in global climate are not a new discovery. What is new, he said, is that global warming has replaced “nuclear winter, acid rain and saving the whales as the must-have buzz phrase” for many scientific grand applications.
“Redistribution of wealth as a politically-correct solution to climate change is cute, but it won’t work,” he said.
The next speaker in the RWC lecture series is Matthew Spalding, a constitutional scholar with the Heritage Foundation, who will discuss his latest book, “We Still Hold These Truths: Rediscovering Our Principles, Reclaiming Our Future.” In the book, Spalding said he details America's core principles and shows how they have come under assault by modern progressive-liberalism.
