What do the liberals do when they are losing the argument?
Call you racist
The science is NOT settled. There is most definitely a rational basis to be skeptical of people like Mr. Gore who cry “the sky is falling” when the science just does not support it. He has made a lot of money off of the scaremongering, that in itself leads me to be skeptical.
And because I’m skeptical I’m comparable to slave owners I suppose.
It gets better:
Al Gore on Friday bashed the notion that climate scientists are manipulating data for financial gain, a charge levied by global warming skeptics, including GOP White House hopeful Rick Perry.
And a perfect endpiece to the Gore absurdity?
The science is now all-but-settled on global warming, convincing new evidence demonstrates, but Al Gore, the IPCC and other global warming doomsayers won’t be celebrating. The new findings point to cosmic rays and the sun — not human activities — as the dominant controller of climate on Earth.
The research, published with little fanfare this week in the prestigious journal Nature, comes from über-prestigious CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, one of the world’s largest centres for scientific research involving 60 countries and 8,000 scientists at more than 600 universities and national laboratories. CERN is the organization that invented the World Wide Web, that built the multi-billion dollar Large Hadron Collider, and that has now built a pristinely clean stainless steel chamber that precisely recreated the Earth’s atmosphere.
In this chamber, 63 CERN scientists from 17 European and American institutes have done what global warming doomsayers said could never be done — demonstrate that cosmic rays promote the formation of molecules that in Earth’s atmosphere can grow and seed clouds, the cloudier and thus cooler it will be. Because the sun’s magnetic field controls how many cosmic rays reach Earth’s atmosphere (the stronger the sun’s magnetic field, the more it shields Earth from incoming cosmic rays from space), the sun determines the temperature on Earth.
Read the whole article to learn how threatened the man-made global warming crowd was over CERN, and how they attempted to shut them up…to no avail, finally
I mean imagine that. The sun, that huge nuclear fireball of energy, just might have something to do with how our climate changes!
Who woulda thunk it? /sarc
Instead, the crowd who had the most to gain financially…cough Gore cough…pushed and pushed the theory that us insignificant human beings (when compared to the energy of the sun) were the cause because of CO2.
Well, time to start over: [PDF]
Climate models will have to be revised, confirms CERN in supporting literature :
“[I]t is clear that the treatment of aerosol formation in climate models will need to be substantially revised, since all models assume that nucleation is caused by these vapours [sulphuric acid and ammonia] and water alone.
