Global Warming – A colossal waste of Resources?

I’m a realist, or at least I try. We have been told by people from Al Gore to the celebrity hoards that the Earth is melting into the sea. I’m not arrogant enough to think that we as humans can actually affect the world climate.

Most people accept everything that the media dishes out without questioning the facts. So-called scientists and researchers say that the Earth is warming and many believe the lie. The fact is that the Earth has been warming, but this is part of a normal trend that the planet goes through.

We’re also told that the US needs to sign the Kyoto Treaty to reduce greenhouse gasses and protect the environment. Really? How about all those third-world countries that signed the treaty that are polluting as much as ever. Who is the real offender here?

About every 20 – 30 years the earth trends from warmer to cold. Back in the 70’s the earth was heading to a new ice age. Now the world is careening to the warm side and everyone is in a tizzy. Some scientists indicate that we may be heading into another cooling trend in the next 5 years. John Stossel has a great article on Real Clear Politics about this very issue: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2006/07/a_convenient_lie.html

Bottom line, I don’t want to change my lifestyle or pay extra taxes for something that is not really a problem. Especially since GE owns NBC, which promotes this lie and then encourages everyone to buy their new energy efficient light bulbs. When in doubt, follow the money.

Also, I’m writing this as I freeze my butt off during our cold winter. Prospective is everything.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
