The Climate Change Follies

Well, here I am in a near western suburb of Philadelphia. It’s December 6, 2009. I look out my window and see a winter wonderland. OK, so the streets are clear and only lawns, trees, and houses are snow laden. But the temperature outside is 28 degrees Fahrenheit. And the forecast for the rest of the week is a high temperature in the low 40’s. Unusual, to say the least, for this time of the year.
So, is there really significant climate change produced by man made global warming? And does that question need to be answered in the light of “Climategate”–––– the scandal about hundreds of e-mails that were uncovered demonstrating an out-and-out effort by scientists across the globe to silence other scientists who disagreed with them on the doomsday prediction that global warming will lead to a catastrophe for human life on Earth. These scientists in the East Anglia Climate Research Unit(CRU) who feed the climate change data to the United Nations, attempted to blackball the anti-Global warming scientists whose questions about why the Earth has cooled over the past decade have gone unanswered. These CRU scientists also attempted to blackball any journals that publish these anti-Global warming articles.
The defenders of the CRU scientists say that no matter what these disturbing e-mail’s say, they represent the best climate science that indicates catastrophe is on the way, is man made, and that all contrary points of view should be excluded, and their proponents disparaged. But if their science is the “best science,” why have they felt a need to “rig the game?”
This is not science! Scientific data must be peer reviewed by objective reviewers who don’t have “an ax to grind,” i.e an enormous need to keep all the federal and non-governmental dollars coming to fund their laboratories and departments.
The public has every right to know what went on behind the scenes, and how the data was arrived at that produced the so-called “consensus” on global warming that the CRU scientists and their colleagues insist exists. And by the way, it appears that all the raw data on global warming from the mid-1980’s upon which so much of the computer models on climate change were based, was somehow destroyed!
I think the Copenhagen Conference needs to be canceled and everyone needs to go back to an “honest” drawing board before we destroy the American economy because of falsified or inaccurate data on global warming.

    How beautifully put. And how appropriate to the climate dilemma.

    Many thanks.

    don’t you think writing about future is a good idea ?
    It generates curiosity and increase knowledge
    predictions something like that
