So Long, Cap And Trade!

"We've been duped!" Those are the first three words I want to hear from the mainstream media bobble heads. And from Al Gore, I want to hear, "Oh crap, I'm broke!" An apology would be nice, too.

So-called experts have been telling us that a little cold snap, such as we're experiencing all across the Northern Hemisphere, did not pardon make, and that we were nonetheless still destroying the planet with our belching of CO2. "Pay no attention to that frigid weather", they said, because weather and climate are separate issues. They told us of the melting arctic ice cap and how the north pole would be ice free in summer by 2013.

According to a story from Sunday in the UK's Daily Mail, this cold weather we're in the midst of is only the beginning of a "global trend towards cooler weather that is likely to last for 20 or 30 years, say some of the world’s most eminent climate scientists." The article goes on:

"Their predictions – based on an analysis of natural cycles in water temperatures in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans – challenge some of the global warming orthodoxy’s most deeply cherished beliefs, such as the claim that the North Pole will be free of ice in
summer by 2013.

According to the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre in Colorado, Arctic summer sea ice has increased by 409,000 square miles, or 26 per cent, since 2007 – and even the most committed global warming activists do not dispute this."
Since 2007? Why have we been told all this time that the arctic sea ice was still declining? Perhaps the most confusing aspect of all of this is that it's cooling while CO2 levels continue to rise. Something just doesn't quite add up here, folks. You can be certain that the Disciples of AGW are working feverishly (pardon the pun) to develop the a way to spin this into even more proof of their insane theories.

It remains to be seen how the media - which has been eager accomplices in propagating this lie - will report on these findings. Will they be angry that they were played for fools? And what of the schools, which been teaching the children about the destructive ways of their mommies and daddies? Will they now be forced to recant?

My guess is that the cap and trade machine will suddenly turn on the very scientists they touted in their crusade who now reveal the scam. This is going to either be a very bumpy and thrilling ride, or once you're done reading here, this is the last you'll ever hear on the subject. Only time will tell.

I don't think you will ever hear the end of global warming. Too many pople bank on it for their living, Al Gore included. "Climate Change" all due to global warming. They've created one huge global cult and make no mistake it is a cult! We who question their science are the deniers. They even go so far as to say we are akin to Holocaust deniers. I say if that is how they feel about it,then they are no better than the thousands who followed that little "Paper hangin" SOB who started that entire sad chapter of history.

I'm not convinced just yet that they are unstoppable, EJ. That runaway train must first be slowed before it's stopped. We're on the right track now, at least.

The real trick is getting those you mention to pay attention.
