Global warming gets the cold shoulder from NASA

I'm not one to lend much credit to "shadow government" conspiracy theories and suspicions that world governments are being controlled by a very small group of people. But the more I hear about the devil gas carbon dioxide and how it will destroy everything we've come to make, the more I believe that global warming is nothing more than a gimmick to control the First World. Is it not strange that as soon as global warming became "settled science" the words "carbon tax" were suddenly the magic words that would save all of humanity? What better way for the U.N. to control and tax every living person within the industrialized world. Imagine being charged by the government for the simple act of living, regardless of how you live? After all, every living person expels CO2 with every breath. Don't think it could happen? Sound too unreasonable?

Come on people, it's the U.N. we're talking about here! Since when have they been at all reasonable?

But there's a light at the end of the tunnel. And I pray that it's powered by fossil fuels! Not every scientist in the world is on board with global warming. Although Al Gore has stated openly that Anthropomorphic Global Warming skeptics should have their credentials revoked (something that would be called fascism in any other context, but apparently Gore gets a pass), many accredited scientists are not going to bend over and take it. Something Al Gore no doubt considers most "inconvenient" is that many people that actually have real credentials and college degrees on the subjects of climatology, geophysics, astrophysics, etc. are not in lock-step with him. It's one thing for a PhD in climatology to support global warming. It's something completely different for a slip and fall lawyer with a carbon footprint as large as the national debt to wear a newspaper hat with "expert" written across the top in crayon. I suppose it's easy though for some with the media support he has. I'm still waiting for CNN to send me my medical degree.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory issued a report recently that suggests the best evidence the Gore-crowd have of global warming, the melting arctic ice caps, may not be the result of man-made global warming after all. The study claims that short, decade-long trends in ocean circulation may account for the increase in ice-melt over the last decade, and further suggests that this trend will shortly reverse itself as part of an ongoing cycle. This report was never announced in any major publication that I could find. I never wondered why. Al Gore would like us to believe the debate is over and that man-made global warming is something only crack-pot bloggers and back-alley scientists denounce. So why then would NASA put up with such nonsense, I'd like to know? And this study was founded by the National Science Foundation! Not Exxon Mobile or BP.

This report is not alone in how it was shunned by the major news outlets. Earlier last month John Coleman, a founder of the Weather Channel, wrote an editorial claiming global warming as the "greatest scam in history." But of course, such people can't be trusted. What would the founder of The Weather Channel know about climatology?

Climate change alarmists continue to march onward, tempting governments with doom and gloom scenarios despite scientific evidence that carbon dioxide has no historical or current basis as the cause of increased global temperatures. A petition program funded entirely by private donations that did not include any industrial contributions gathered over 19,000 signatures from scientists with degrees in the physical sciences that do not believe man is the cause of global warming. So much for consensus.

No doubt Al Gore is feeling the heat (pun intended).

I remember a couple of months ago some students were asking science questions to astronauts on STS-120 in orbit. One student asked about global warming and the astronaut replied that there is no evidence to support that hypothesis.
Change of subject, I wonder if Gore knows that the Nobel medallion he wears DOES NOT contain chocolate?

No chocolate? Then what's the point?

I just saw that NASA discovered the solar system is bent: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071211/ap_on_sc/solar_system_edge

First Pluto isn't a planet, and now this? I don't know what to believe anymore!
