by Dr. Thomas P. Sheahen, an MIT educated physicist, author of the book An Introduction to High-Temperature Superconductivity, and writer of the popular newspaper column "Ask the Everyday Scientist."
The question came to me in the first place from a first grader. I think the existence of a question so phrased is a good example of the way elementary teachers have bought into AGW and are pushing it onto their students. My reply is for the general readership of the newspaper, not at a first grade level. I didn't have the heart to tell the young student that her teacher is an idiot.
Q.Are polar bears going to become extinct because the Arctic ice is melting?
This is a topic that is beset with great confusion. The biggest problem of all is hype, because the entire topic makes terrific copy for a fund-raising letter. Children in elementary grades are sometimes being told that this is one of the terrible things happening because of mankind releasing too much CO2.

By Retired U.S. Navy Physicist and Engineer James A. Marusek
I wrote the following article and I would like to have it get a little more exposure than just a letter to the editor in the local newspaper. The problem with the global warming theory is that it can cloud one's vision from a real threat, global cooling. And in so doing can cause great harm to this country. Perhaps you might consider sending it out.
Legacy for Our Children
There is a lot of talk these days about the legacy we will leave our children and our grandchildren. When I stare into the immediate future, I see a frightening legacy caked in darkness and famine. Instead of intelligently preparing, we find ourselves whittling away this precious time chasing fraudulent theories. We have a decade to prepare, but have a misguided sense of direction and urgency.

I just received this message from Kees de Jager about an article which he wrote with Silvia Duhau. It has been published in the latest issue of the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics.
The authors don't foresee any further global warming in the near future, but the possibility of a new Dalton minimum in stead.
If they are right, current climate policies will become irrelevant and will have to be fundamentally reassessed.

From John Douglas
Check out these pages I scanned from the book, "Eco-Hysterics and Technophobes" by Peter Beckmann. I don't agree with everything he says, but there does seem to be some useful information in it. He talks about his skepticism of CO2 catastrophism on pages 162-164.
The book is available at amazon.com and the Library of Congress.

Dear Mr. Morano,
On the official US senate minority web site you cite a blog that accuses me of scientific fraud.
"A critical analysis of the paper from December 21, 2008, accused the authors of the Antarctic study of making questionable data adjustments.

A couple of days ago an article appeared in The Hindu 'We must hasten to correct global warming'
by veteran cosmic ray scientist Sir Arnold Wolfendale. Sadly he seems to have come to an end with his research...

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.) today announced that Former Vice-President Al Gore will testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on climate change and the importance of U.S. leadership. Gore will discuss the latest climate change science and the implications for the future of our planet.
"My friend and former Senate colleague Al Gore is one of this nation's leading authorities on the subject of climate change, and we are honored that he has agreed to appear before the Committee," said Kerry. "Al Gore has been sounding the alarm on climate change for over three decades, and he understands the urgent need for American engagement and leadership on this issue. America must act decisively in order for the nations of the world to reach agreement on a climate change treaty at the December 2009 meeting of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen, Denmark. The timeline is short for us to respond to the threat of climate change, and this hearing will examine what America must do to lead the world in crafting a truly global solution."

Environmentalism is the social movement of the "landed interest" - an interest parallel to that of neither business nor labour. "Environmentalism" is readily identifiable in early 19th century Britain. This essay draws from the best-known writings of the era's three most influential intellectuals for a portrait of an anti-democratic, anti-capitalist social movement based in the aristocracy but claiming to represent the masses; a movement permeated with the ideas of over-population theorist T. Malthus; a movement benefiting from restricting land supply and suffering from advancing agricultural technology; that fought a cultural civil war using literary Romanticism and monkish asceticism; that was militantly protectionist regarding agriculture; that constrained industrial progress and spread fear of catastrophe.

The alarmists, not having a scientific leg to stand on, always resort to ad hominem attacks, usually accompanied by accusations of being in the pay of the oil companies.
The fact remains that this planet has been warming for about 12,000 years and will continue to warm until it decides to have another 100,000 year ice age. During that time, sea levels have risen perhaps 400 feet and will likely continue to rise at a millimeter or two per year until long term cooling sets in again.

"Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton could be the greatest trail-blazers for a new era in the 21st Century; but if they don't stand up to the failed ideology of man-made Global Warming and the interests who back it they could become the most foolish leaders of the new century" said Piers Corbyn astrophysicist of WeatherAction long range forecasters today (Jan 13) commenting on Hilary Clinton's confirmation hearing as USA Secretary Of State before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
