“A Few Good Men”–that was the Marines’ slogan. Actually, I am looking for a 1,000, male or female.
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” –Edmund Burke– “No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”
A new Irish documentary coming this month, “Not Evil, Just Wrong”, addresses the global warming hysteria of politicians and the media.
While that title accurately describes most people who support the global warming “crisis”, ultimately, if the U.S. Senate passes “Cap and Trade’ (don’t be fooled with the new propaganda that this is a “jobs bill”) the effects will be evil.
The poor of this world will suffer the most. But even here, this may be the final nail in the coffin for our economy. It is our children who will pay the price.
Plan of Action:
People need to write and speak up to the news media and their Senators. AND it would be great for people to write a letter to the editor of their local paper.
Here is the link for Feedback to the PBS Newshour which has ignored any scientists who speak out. (On the 18 September Newshour, Margaret Warner stated that: “this huge team of scientists from all over the globe issued these unanimous warnings about the really extreme danger to the planet.”)
Here is the link to write your Senators:
Three key Republican Senators are particularly lacking in wisdom on this: McCain, Luger, and Graham.
Here are links or quotes to choose from to educate these people:
“First off, there isn’t a consensus among scientists. Don’t let anybody tell you there is.” – Dr. Charles Wax, past president of the American Association of State Climatologists
“It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming. – Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg, NOAA
This paper by the Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at MIT, gives a clear, concise summary of the problem: http://www.heartland.org/events/newyork09/pdfs/lindzen.pdf

Freeman Dyson Quotes: http://noconsensus.org/scientists/freeman-dyson.php
It makes very little sense to believe the output of the climate models…Vegetation is really controlling what happens…whereas the emphasis in the climate models has always been on the atmosphere.
The idea that global warming is the most important problem facing the world is total nonsense and is doing a lot of harm. It distracts people’s attention from much more serious problems.
When I listen to the public debates about climate change, I am impressed by the enormous gaps in our knowledge, the sparseness of our observations and the superficiality of our theories.
Climate change is part of the normal order of things, and we know it was happening before humans came. [sources and further quotes at link above].
“Our ignorance about the climate system is enormous, and policy makers need to know that. This is an extremely complex system, and thinking we can control it is hubris.” – Dr. John R. Christy, a lead author on the IPCC, Professor of Atmospheric Science and Director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama–Huntsville: (comments from debate on 11 Feb., 2009) (THIS is the most important fact of the whole issue)
“Many thousands of scientists from the US and around the globe do not accept the human-induced global warming hypothesis as it has been presented by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports over the last 15 years. The media has, in general, uncritically accepted the results of the IPCC and over-hyped the human aspects of the warming threat. This makes for better press than saying that the climate changes we have experienced are mostly natural. The contrary views of the many warming skeptics have been largely ignored and their motives denigrated. The alleged ‘scientific consensus’ on this topic is bogus.” – Dr. Bill Gray, Professor Emeritus of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University
