RIP: Global Warming?

"Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming"

This is how Michael Asher's blog over at begins. While the blog (which was reported by Drudge Report) is a bit over the top in it's declaration of the end of Global Warming, if you go to the sources Asher is using for this epithet, you will see there is a SIGNIFICANT trend in global cooling. Whether it is an actual trend, or just a blip, only time will tell.

Unless you listen to the "Religion of the Global Warming Scare" (headed by Pope Al Gore), you will realize that global cooling is a far greater threat to mankind than any amount of warming we have seen historically, with the "Little Ice Age" being the best example of how global cooling can hurt mankind.

Mind you, I am NOT sounding the alarms on global cooling. Nor am I heeding the scare tactics of the Global Warming crowd. The plain simple fact is that Global Warming was, and is, a scientific theory. If climatologists begin claiming that global cooling is happening based on the data, that too will be a scientific theory. The FACT is that climatology has NOT been able to accurately predict what global temperatures will do in the past (the Global Cooling scare of the 1970's is a prime example of this).

Ironically, in both the Global Cooling and the current Global Warming scares, mankind was blamed as the primary cause, in spite of the fact that significant global warming and cooling have occurred throughout the history of this planet prior to mankind's industrialization. Yet we still view ourselves as the center of the universe, with all things happening because of US.

I have said it before, but it is worth repeating:
If you look back on mankind's history, whenever something bad happened, such as famine or disease, mankind's natural reaction was that the gods were causing it to happen because they were displeased with humans. In essence, mankind was responsible for the famines or diseases they experienced.

To this day, we assume nothing happens in the universe unless mankind causes it.

In psychology, a human infant assumes they are the center of the universe, since they know nothing else except themselves. As a species, humans are being infantile when we assume that everything that happens in the universe is caused by us.

Grow up people.

As you well know, Ed, the fact don't matter nearly as much as the politics and ideology (quasi-religion!) of "Global Warming."

The Energy Bill has been passed. (*SHRUG*)

The subsidies - subsidies that environmentally speaking as well as obviously economically speaking take us in the WRONG direction - are set in stone.

It's over, Ed. Things will get worse and worse for years to come. Prices will rise. People will suffer. World pollution will increase... not due to the US, but due to China, India, and all the non-Western nations that won't put the breaks on development the environmentalists hunger for.

That's because China and India are smarter than we are.

Global Warming? Ha! It's all a plot by demonic commies to destroy their own world and ruin their own lives.
We should've seen it coming when Castro was on The Ed Sullivan Show.
