The Great Global Warming Swindle, Part 2

2009-07-20 20.29.40Yesterday I shared Part 1 of The Global Warming Swindle, a devastating rebuttal of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” propaganda.

he Global Warming Swindle was produced in 2007 by WAG TV, a top production company in Great Britain.  It features a host of expert scientific testimony from many respected scientists which shows the theory of anthropogenic (man-made) global warming is full of hot air.

Part 2 begins by examining the “Little Ice Age” felt in the northern hemisphere about 200 years ago. The Thames River in London froze up so hard that people held “ice fairs” and other activities right on the frozen river.

Prior to that, temperatures during the Middle Ages were even warmer than they are today. It was warm enough for the Vikings to colonize Greenland and grow vineyards there.

The film also indicates that vineyards had been common in England. Having lived in England for three years during the late 1980s, I have seen first hand that England is really neither very warm nor very cold, so both the freezing of the Thames and warmth to grow vineyards are extremely out of the ordinary for modern times. Apparently climate can vary widely…and has done so…without the aid of human industrial activity.

Scientists say the earth was even warmer still–and for a longer period–during the Holocene age.

With regard to Twentieth Century warming, we see that the latest warming trend began before cars and modern industrial contributions came along, and most of the warming occurred before the post-World War II industrial boom.

CO2 production just doesn’t line up well with global temperature change.  Inconvenient, huh?

Professor Tim Ball of the Department of Climatology at the University of Winnipeg points out that greenhouse gases only make a up a small portion of the atmosphere, and CO2 is only a small portion of those greenhouse gasses.  And natural sources contribute far more CO2 than do human sources.

According to Professor John Christy of the IPCC, temperature in the upper atmosphere doesn’t match the expectations of the theory of anthropogenic global warming, either.  According to the theory, it should be much higher than it actually is. Satellites and weather balloon data both tell us this.
