"I agree the 11C figure was unreasonably hyped. It's a difficult line for all scientists to tread, as we need something 'exciting' to have any chance of publishing... to justify our funding," - Scientist to the BBC, 2006
With the release of Al Gore's propaganda movie 'An Inconvenient Truth' and with the help of the media the public has been driven into a mass hysteria based not on science but lies. You will learn that there is no empirical evidence that man-made CO2 is the primary cause of the mild 0.6c increase in temperature over the last 100 years, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is not pollution, pollution has nothing to do with global warming, Al Gore and his movie are a fraud, there is no "consensus" on the cause of global warming, the earth has been warmer in the past then it is today, the land based temperature stations are biased and their temperature records have been "adjusted", Antarctica is not melting, Arctic sea ice cannot effect sea level, sea levels are rising millimeters not feet, computer climate models are worthless, polar bears are not endangered or dying, droughts and hurricanes are not caused or made worse by global warming and there is extensive evidence of natural causes for global warming such as increased solar activity and orbital variations.
The current man-made global warming hysteria is largely driven by the environmentalist movement in an attempt to reshape western society away from capitalism by implementing state control (socialism) over private energy usage (Carbon Taxes, Cap and Trade). These environmentalists wish to get rid of the suburbs, SUVs, single family homes and return western society to a neo-urbanistic state of living. This is because the current environmentalist movement is filled with ex-communists and neo-socialists who have long ago abandoned science and replaced it with their politically motivated environmental "religion". Don't believe me? Go ask any "environmentalist" - socialism or capitalism? No, not all scientists even those who support man-made global warming theory seek these politically motivated intentions but their position has been distorted and exaggerated for political gain by extremists. I have created this page to help shed light on what you have not been told.
Unfortunately I don't have time to reply to all of the propaganda you posted, but here's some food for thought:
31,000 scientists and 9,000 PhDs? Umm, how did they prove this?
All you have to do to sign the thing is print it out, fill in your 'credentials' and send it back in.
5. Does the petition list contain names other than those of scientist signers?
Opponents of the petition project sometimes submit forged signatures in efforts to discredit the project. Usually, these efforts are eliminated by our verification procedures. On one occasion, a forged signature appeared briefly on the signatory list. It was removed as soon as discovered.
In a group of more than 30,000 people, there are many individuals with names similar or identical to other signatories, or to non-signatories – real or fictional. Opponents of the petition project sometimes use this statistical fact in efforts to discredit the project. For examples, Perry Mason and Michael Fox are scientists who have signed the petition – who happen also to have names identical to fictional or real non-scientists.
And as far as the Earth cooling in the last 12 years, that's completely not true...well, actually, that's a blatant twist on logic to make it seem like the Earth is cooling.
The Earth's average (mean) temperature has steadily risen since the industrial revolution. No, it doesn't rise every year or remain consistent year-to-year, but over periods of time it does consistently rise.
Could you find a reputable source that isn't www.ihatecapeandtrade.com?

stop flooding this thread with facts. They are getting in the way of the story. It's just getting to the good part. Al Gore is going to tell us how long we are going to survive before the carbon monster eats us all.
Another thing i cant understand is why people ignore the greenhouse effect, its like you ignore Pythagorean theorem..
Nobel Committee Bypassed Holocaust Savior for Al Gore
For instance, meet Irena Sendler, a 97-year-old Polish woman who saved 2,500 Jewish children from certain death in the Warsaw ghetto during World War II.
Hadn't heard of her? Well, don't feel bad, for since the Nobel Committee announced the nominees in February, there have only been 107 reports about Mrs. Sendler being one of them. By contrast, Al Gore and "Nobel" have been mentioned in 2,912.

Carbon Dioxide introduced by man is 0.00105% OF ALL GREENHOUSE GASES, or 0.0000105% of the atmosphere. Additionally, global warming alarmism is WRONG because it does not take into account water vapour, the most prominent greenhouse gas. So yes, man DOES have an effect, however it's likely to be a TINY one and additionally there are many other factors to the environment, water vapour, the sun, and clouds, for example. Additionally, it has been shown that historical Carbon Dioxide levels actually lag slightly behind temperature, not the other way around.
But what figures are those, is that also factory farming, pigs, manure etc?
Human activites contribute slightly to greenhouse gas concentrations through farming, manufacturing, power generation, and transportation. However, these emissions are so dwarfed in comparison to emissions from natural sources we can do nothing about, that even the most costly efforts to limit human emissions would have a very small-- perhaps undetectable-- effect on global climate.
And how about the Methane in the permafrost?Isnt that greenhouse effect when the methane is released into the air?
That is melting [ and so the pole caps],
so how come people here are saying it is only getting colder?
“For how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand that the planet is not warming? For how many years must cooling go on? “- Geologist Dr. David Gee, the chairman of the science committee of the 2008 International Geological Congress, who has authored 130 plus peer reviewed papers, and is currently at Uppsala University in Sweden.
