For years, Al Gore and other environmental extremists have sounded the alarm about the global climate crisis. I agree especially after yesterday’s freakish snowfall in New Orleans. It is high time for all clear minded scientists to unite behind a plan to combat global cooling...
It should be clear to everyone now that global cooling is a real problem. In fact, the cooling of the earth’s temperature is a real crisis that demands action. Yesterday, the metropolitan New Orleans area received the earliest snowfall in recorded history. Some suburban areas north of New Orleans received 8 inches of snow! This is history making and disturbing, so why is global cooling impacting New Orleans?
Sadly, that question is being ignored by Al Gore, who continues to pursue the myth that humans are causing the temperature of the earth to increase. He believes in global warming as a religion and it is scary sight to behold. Gore is also pushing the use of carbon credits, which are designed to supposedly limit the “carbon footprint” of individuals and businesses. Hollywood is completely on board with Gore’s radical global warming agenda and continues to produce movies which warn of the climate crisis. Today, a new movie called “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” will be released starring Keanu Reeves as an alien visiting earth warning people that they are damaging the planet. One reviewer called the movie’s ecological emphasis “preachy.”
Gore should visit New Orleans to investigate what is really happening. Yesterday the rare snowfall was an amazing sight that kids of all ages enjoyed. Unfortunately, for those who lost power or had to deal with dangerous road conditions, it was a much more uncomfortable situation.
Barack Obama is fully supportive of the Gore agenda and agrees with the global warming hysterics. He has committed to make the fight against global warming a signature issue in his upcoming administration. It seems like the President-Elect might have identified the wrong problem.
According to noted geologist and famed hurricane forecaster William Gray, the temperature of the earth will cool over the next ten years. In addition, a recent report by the University of Illinois and the NASA Marshall Flight Center showed that artic ice levels have actually increased 30% in the past year.
New Orleans is not the only place in the United States to face unseasonably cold weather this year. In fact, Alaska is dealing with the coldest start to their winter season in 16 years.
In another sign that the global warming “crisis” is nothing more than a hoax, a new U.S. Senate report includes statements from 650 international scientists who dispute the claims about man-made global warming. The report maintains that the sun is the actual cause of about half of the earth’s climate change. More and more scientists are predicting that in the next ten years, the naturally occurring solar cycles will cause cooling conditions on earth. Dealing with global cooling, which may last longer than the normal solar cycle of 11 years should become a top priority for governments around the world.
Instead, Al Gore, Barack Obama, the United Nations and Hollywood are pointing to global warming as the crisis of the century. They should refrain from hysterical rhetoric and try to focus on what is really happening in places like New Orleans. In the Crescent City, snow is not seen very often, it has appeared only eight times since 1947. It was a rare event to say the least, almost as rare as Al Gore and his global warming fanatics actually making sense.
