Climate change occurring on Mars similar to Earth's

The Sunday Times on the other side of the Pond ran an interesting story about the climate change occurring on Mars. Mars has warmed about 0.5c since the 70's - about the same amount that Earth has warmed during the same period.

It is this kind of evidence that strongly suggests that Earth is experiencing global warming as a natural phenomena and not specifically caused by man. The Sun plays a much larger role in climate change than I think many of the alarmists are willing to give it credit for.

After all man-made global warming is a great way to guilt the human race into spilling trillions of their hard earned dollars into government programs that create wealth and power for the liberal elite!

Dr. William Gray: Oceans Cause Global Warming, Not CO2

Renown hurricane forecaster Dr. William Gray came out swinging again yesterday. His voice of reason is really starting to resonate. He has been correctly predicting hurricane forecasts for over 40 years.

It is his belief that the current global warming trend is caused by the ocean currents and soon we will start to see a cooling trend.

He went after the Gore alarmists approach to global warming - the camp that states that humans are responsible for the current global warming trend. Gray summed it up nicely:

"They're blaming it all on humans, which is crazy," he said. "We're not the cause of it."

Gray also pointed out that politics and research into global warming have created an industry that unfairly scares the population and attacks dissenting voices.

He went on to say that the computer models used by the alarmist camp are unreliable and are just "mush". Gray noted that there are hundreds of factors that influence the weather.

Most of the scientific information I have digested indicates to me that the CO2 increases are actually a result of the global warming trend and not the cause of it.

Industry caught in carbon ‘smokescreen’ - might be a scam - SHOCKER!

Interesting article yesterday in the Financial Times regarding the ole Carbon Credits debacle. Looks like this whole "carbon credits" nightmare is looking pretty sketchy. This whole scheme reminds me of the Catholic Indulgences payment for sin scam!

The FT investigation found:

  • Widespread instances of people and organisations buying worthless credits that do not yield any reductions in carbon emissions.
  • Industrial companies profiting from doing very little – or from gaining carbon credits on the basis of efficiency gains from which they have already benefited substantially.
  • Brokers providing services of questionable or no value.
  • A shortage of verification, making it difficult for buyers to assess the true value of carbon credits.
  • Companies and individuals being charged over the odds for the private purchase of European Union carbon permits that have plummeted in value because they do not result in emissions cuts.

Where is Al Gore screaming about this? Why is it that people think they can always "buy" an excuse for their hypocritical behavior?

Interesting read but wholly not surprising.

Earth like planet found - The New Earth

This is really amazing. An earth like planet has been discovered. Albeit 20.5 light years away but it has our same climate, water, gravity, etc. This is really a fantastic discovery.

I wonder how long before Al Gore tries to convince that planet that it is suffering from our man-made global warming!

Mapping out the Blogosphere

Wow this is cool! Mathew Hurst recently collected data and links for six weeks and produced a plot of the most active and interconnected parts of the blogging world.

Definitely worth taking some time to review and read about his efforts. These type of mapping exercises certainly put some perspective on the depth of blogging and its' potential impact on the world.

Thanks Mathew - interesting stuff!

Scientist: Warming not caused by humans

Wendy Reeves over at The Huntsville Times has a story about Roy Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and former NASA scientist.

Roy Spencer is another scientist stepping up to proclaim Global Warming is not caused by humans. Roy has recently testified to congress about Global Warming and Climate Change.

Roy also has a website: Be prepared as the site is definitely a satirists view on Global Warming. Roy is not only an accomplished and respected scientist but he is pretty funny as well!

Top MIT Meteroligists Slams Alarmist Approach to Global Warming and States Their Perspective Has No Basis in Science

Newsweek has an article in the upcoming April 16th issue that will certainly raise some eyebrows. Here is another example of a top scientist coming out against the alarmists approach to Global Warming.

Richard Lindzen MIT's top meteorologist has come out swinging against the media driven consensus regarding Global Warming. Specifically the earth is facing a crisis requiring urgent action - this statement has nothing to do with science. He goes on to further explain that there is absolutely no evidence to suggest anything close to a catastrophe.

He also makes a great point about predicting the weather. That somehow our warming forecasts for 30 years in the future is somehow more reliable than the forecast for next week.

Here is an interesting twist for you: Richard also suggest that a warmer climate could prove to be more beneficial than the climate we currently have. He blames the alarmist approach on their ignorance of what is normal for weather and climate.

This article is very worthwhile reading and really should cause people pause and take a moment to rethink and question what is being presented behind an extremists environmental or political agenda.

BTW: Richard receives no funding from any energy company.

Top Hurricane Forecaster says Gore has it all wrong!

Another voice of recent with impeccable credentials steps forward and calls Al Gore "a gross alarmist". Dr. William Gray the world's top hurricane forecaster thinks Gore is doing a great disservice and he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Is anyone really surprised? Al Gore is a politician, he is in it because it garners him political power and many opportunities to increase his personal wealth.

This article is a good read for anyone looking to debunk the alarmists approach to forcing normal folk into spending trillions of dollars.
