So, the Obama government is eager to legislate and regulate global warming as though it exists, and that its assumed cause, CO2, is based on science. But there are no good records of global surface temperatures for science to study now. They are lost. As Patrick J. Michaels says in his “The Dog Ate Global Warming,”
Imagine if there were no reliable records of global surface temperature. Raucous policy debates such as cap-and-trade would have no scientific basis, Al Gore would at this point be little more than a historical footnote, and President Obama would not be spending this U.N. session talking up a (likely unattainable) international climate deal in Copenhagen in December. Steel yourself for the new reality, because the data needed to verify the gloom-and-doom warming forecasts have disappeared. Or so it seems. Apparently, they were either lost or purged from some discarded computer. Only a very few people know what really happened, and they aren’t talking much. And what little they are saying makes no sense.More here.
Yet, Obama and his people want to greatly nationalize America’s society and economy on assumptions for which the data are not there. But according to a EPA suppressed scientific report (permalink not working, so see the first link in the text after the cartoon), what can be tested and verified does not support global warming or the supposed cause.
Then, what is going on here? A fraudulent world global warming crisis is being wielded by the left and socialists world wide to further massive government controls and nationalization. No matter it is false. It is a weapon to win great power.
