Global Warming or Global Cooling?

It appears there’s mounting frustration by those who disbelieve mankind is contributing to global warming. In fact, there was a great article by John Lott Jr. on FoxNews.com today. He pointed out that a rising number of scientists are calling into question the manmade global warming claims. This latest batch of scientists reported to the U.S. Committee on the Environment and Public Works. Some of these quotes are priceless.

Dr. Denis G. Rancourt says this hysteria is damaging the true environmental movement:

Promoting the global warming myth trains people to accept unverified, remote, and abstract dangers in the place of true problems that they can discover for themselves by becoming directly engaged in their workplace and by doing their own research and observations. It trains people to think lifestyle choices (in relation to CO2 emission) rather than to think activism in the sense of exerting an influence to change societal structures.

There is ample evidence that the polar ice caps are melting and that the earth has been getting warmer. But, could that change tomorrow? Sure. Atmospheric scientist Dr. Nathan Paldor, Professor of Dynamical Meteorology and Physical Oceanography at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem says:

First, temperature changes, as well as rates of temperature changes (both increase and decrease) of magnitudes similar to that reported by IPCC to have occurred since the Industrial revolution (about 0.8C in 150 years or even 0.4C in the last 35 years) have occurred in Earth’s climatic history. There’s nothing special about the recent rise!

The most unsettling thing out of Dr. Paldor was his conclusion:

Many of my colleagues with whom I spoke share these views and report on their inability to publish their skepticism in the scientific or public media

Fitting for a world with ‘uberous hubris’.
