I understand your point. It is however the wealthy countries that are doing everything that is being done for the environment at the moment. However,
it is these same countries who are under political attack while the countries like China and India are seemingly given a pass. We are constantly
improving our situation and I see nothing happening where the greatest dangers lie.
You can surely understand why some might confuse your words. Why use the words "dark skin" at all? The third world comes in all colors I believe.
Everything in my first post came from "experts" I have seen speaking in the news recently. Some, like the fact the ice returned in the North, came
from sites that report such data. I've noticed the Talking Heads have not gone out of their way to report facts as they happen. They scream
information that backs their version from the rooftops. Very disingenuous I believe.
One problem with being a Moderate, which I tend to be, is that often people don't know how to approach my opinions. As I tried to say before, I do
not know the whole truth here and I'm just sharing my thoughts based on what I've seen and read. The part about it getting cooler at the southern
end of the planet, came from a man who I saw on an interview just a few days ago. I wish I could remember his name. He had just released a book and
was introduced as being one of the people who started the whole topic. He was quite angered that his fellow scientists had bastardized his words and
science in general in the quest for more funding.
If there is a real conspiracy angle here, it is that those we rely on in science have become part of the problem. They are little more than Lobbyists
engaging in spin (lies) to make sure the money train arrives on time.
Another troubling fact is that as I mentioned, the UN team did not even consider the fact that the other planets are warming. Why should they be
trusted? They literally wrote their opinion before they looked at the evidence. In fact, I understand they refused to consider that evidence. The UN
is just a giant hole for money, where the Elite invent meaningless high paying jobs for their shirt-tail relatives and reward, probably for kickbacks,
contractors who are their friends. It just floors me that people trust a corrupt governmental organization that puts some of the worst human rights
violators in charge of policing themselves.
I will willingly admit I have a bias where people like Al Gore are concerned. He is such a transparent scumbag it's hard not to get angry. The
so-called Environmental groups are not much better. Facts are the last thing on earth they want to see enter any discussion. They only want to scare
us to keep the checks coming in to cover their six figure, or higher, salaries and justify their existence.
You should see how dishonest the Ads they pay for up here in Alaska are. I don't know how they keep from being charged with fraud. They form local
Non-Profits to hide the fact they are involved and then flood them with money. Over the last couple of years, we have had record Salmon runs in rivers
where they predicted dramatic declines. Have you seen any reporting of that? Good, honest, hard-working people I know who live and work on the North
Slope tell me the Polar Bear population is getting out of control. They tell me they have to work with an armed guard now out of fear of attack. I
don't suppose you have seen that reported? I know for a fact that these people are honest, so what does that say about what is being reported?
Since the oil pipeline went in, the Caribou herds have grown by huge percentages. Have you seen that reported? ANWR is being proposed on a salt-marsh
where nothing but mosquito's live and not where the phony videos shown to the public were shot. Have you seen that reported? (those photo's and
films were shot more than a hundred miles from the real site by activists on the other side)
Where this leaves me is once again in the middle trying to separate the truth from fiction. Both sides are lying constantly. Neither side deserves to
be believed. All I can do is weigh the evidence. The Environmental Activists seem to lie the most often which is starting to tilt the scale the other
way for me. Why anyone sends them checks just boggles the mind.
