When I was a schoolboy in Sligo in the early 1980s, we learned of two interesting facts in our geography class.

The first was that world oil supplies would be completely exhausted by 2000. The second was that another ice age was imminent.

These "theories" were universally accepted by "expert scientists" who presumably knew a lot more than Sligo schoolchildren. It turned out that they were completely and utterly wrong.

Now the new "experts" have declared that man-made "global warming" is an indisputable fact supported by 90pc of scientists.

There have been many texts and many analyses written about big governments, specifically the tyranny of big governments. Those who have studied them notice big governments such as those of Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Red China, Cuba, North Korea, Myanmar, and others, have commonalities among them. “The Road to Serfdom” by Nobel winner Friedrich Hayek, for example, is a short and excellent analysis.

There are invariably major losses of personal freedoms, personal liberty, speech codes, loss of freedom of the press, to assemble, of religion, expression, confiscation of personal property, confiscation of wealth, wages, and overall government sponsored destitution. Most have led in their final stages to tyranny involving huge terror and police states, rendering its citizens broken, deprived, and destitute.

Stephen Wilde has been a Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society since 1968. The first Ten articles from Mr Wilde were received with a great deal of interest throughout the Co2 Sceptic community.

In Stephen Wilde’s most recent and exclusive article for CO2Sceptics.Com called "The Flaw in Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory" he puts a case forward to support his work "The Hot Water Bottle Effect" and also "Greenhouse Confusion Resolved"

By Stephen Wilde

My article on "Greenhouse Confusion" drew vigorous comments from those who believe firmly that anthropogenic global warming (or rather climate change) is a real and immediate threat.

It seems that additional infrared or long wave radiation is supposed to have some property that makes it a threat. Thus we hear so much about ‘down welling’ re- radiation from the atmosphere warming up the planet dangerously because humanity is releasing a certain amount of CO2 that would not otherwise be in the atmosphere.

CCSP Climate Impacts Report: A Perversion of Science

From WorldClimateReport.Com By Chip Knappenberger

Luckily, the U.S. Climate Change Assessment Report just released by the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) is only a “draft” released for the purpose of gathering public comments. This means that the report’s authors still have time to get things in order before a “final” publication is released. The current contents read as if the CCSP authors set aside their list of sizable scientific credentials, and instead opted to write a fantasy piece on how they wished the state of climate science to be, rather than how it actually is.

As it now stands, the draft CCSP report is a gross perversion of science.

Global warming – other side of debate

From NorthJersey.Com by Charles W. Lampert

Regarding "What global warming?" (Editorial, July 20):

I am disappointed in The Record's one-sided coverage of climate change. There is much scientific evidence that not only minimizes man's contribution to the warming that has occurred since the 1970s, but also indicates that cooling has occurred since 1998. Here are facts that should be considered before jumping on the global warming bandwagon:

* Satellite measurement shows that global temperatures have dropped since 1998.

* Sea levels are falling.

* Global sea ice coverage is greater than normal. Below-normal Northern Hemisphere ice coverage (although coverage is higher than last year) is being more than offset by the second-highest level of sea ice coverage in the Southern Hemisphere ever recorded.

We thought some of you would like to see this CO2Sceptics gem from 27th January 2005......Canada.Com (Join in our Forum section The Missing Hockey Stick to read the debate)

Breaking the hockey stick
Marcel Crok
Special to the Financial Post

The famous graph that supposedly shows that recent temperatures are the highest in a thousand years has now been shown by careful analysis to have been based on faulty data

Few people dispute that the earth is getting warmer, but there are people -- so-called "climate skeptics" -- who question whether the change is historically unique and whether it is the result of human activity. These skeptics are generally outsiders, reviled by "true" climate researchers.

On the one hand, Michael Mann, the first author of the two noted hockey-stick papers (in Nature in 1998 and in Geophysical Research Letters in 1999), is the unofficial king of climate research. In 2002, Scientific American included him as one of the top 50 visionaries in science. On the other hand, the two Canadian skeptics are outsiders: Ross McKitrick is a professor of economics and Stephen McIntyre is a mineral exploration consultant -- which Mann likes to call a conflict of interest.

Why no real debate on global warming?
From the Vallejo Times-Herald by John Takeuchi

The dumb things cooking in congress and state legislatures should force a national debate on the question of global warming. The media, however, seem more than willing to give Al Gore a platform - which tends to discourage most folks from jumping in.

Here's my take on it. My undergrad degree is meteorology, so I have at least a fundamental grasp of the subject: Is the atmosphere warming? In some places, yes; in other places, no.

Is warming unusual? No, the atmosphere has periodic warming and cooling cycles.

Climate hysterics v heretics in an age of unreason
From The Australian by Arthur Herman

IT has been a tough year for the high priests of global warming in the US. First, NASA had to correct its earlier claim that the hottest year on record in the contiguous US had been 1998, which seemed to prove that global warming was on the march. It was actually 1934. Then it turned out the world's oceans have been growing steadily cooler, not hotter, since 2003. Meanwhile, the winter of 2007 was the coldest in the US in decades, after Al Gore warned us that we were about to see the end of winter as we know it.

In a May issue of Nature, evidence about falling global temperatures forced German climatologists to conclude that the transformation of our planet into a permanent sauna is taking a decade-long hiatus, at least. Then this month came former greenhouse gas alarmist David Evans's article in The Australian, stating that since 1999 evidence has been accumulating that man-made carbon emissions can't be the cause of global warming. By now that evidence, Evans said, has become pretty conclusive.

Yet believers in man-made global warming demand more and more money to combat climate change and still more drastic changes in our economic output and lifestyle.
Blunt answers about risks of global warming

The ChicagoTribune by Michael Hawthorne had the Person Of Interest section with RAJENDRA PACHAURI (IPCC).

He mentioned the "Flat Earth" society amongst others, take time out to read this....and then ask yourself, how would you inform him about "Climate Change", when he thinks that becoming a vegetarian can make a change to "Global Warming"!

Q: What do you think about the small but vocal group of doubters still out there?

Pachauri Answer: There is, even today, a Flat Earth Society that meets every year to say the Earth is flat. The science about climate change is very clear. There really is no room for doubt at this point.

Q: What have you done personally to shrink your carbon footprint?

A: I've become a vegetarian. I try to minimize the use of cars. Where I've failed is my impact with regard to air travel. I tell people I was born a Hindu who believes in reincarnation. It will take me the next six lives to neutralize my carbon footprint. There's no way I can do it in one lifetime!

The Washinton Post by Joal Achenbach

Global Warming Did It! Well, Maybe Not.

We're stuck on the notion that climate change is the culprit every time a natural disaster strikes. But that's just muddying the waters.

We're heading into the heart of hurricane season, and any day now, a storm will barrel toward the United States, inspiring all the TV weather reporters to find a beach where they can lash themselves to a palm tree. We can be certain of two things: First, we'll be told that the wind is blowing very hard and the surf is up. Second, some expert will tell us that this storm might be a harbinger of global warming.

Somewhere along the line, global warming became the explanation for everything. Right-thinking people are not supposed to discuss any meteorological or geophysical event -- a hurricane, a wildfire, a heat wave, a drought, a flood, a blizzard, a tornado, a lightning strike, an unfamiliar breeze, a strange tingling on the neck -- without immediately invoking the climate crisis. It causes earthquakes, plagues and backyard gardening disappointments. Weird fungus on your tomato plants? Classic sign of global warming.
