Report below from NewsMax concerning the upcoming environmental-disaster movie, global warning and the likely effect upon the 2004 presidential election.

WEBMASTER'S NOTE: Most scientists consider global warming a fact but most do not believe this to be a result of human interaction.

Paleo-climatologists only recently learned that "global warming" occurred approximately 20 years before the last ice age. The reasons for the sudden reversal are complex, having to do with subsurface ocean currents and other little-understood geo functions. But this story below has an interesting political twist.

From NewsMax May 23: Army Abets Anti-Bush Movie
Supporters of President Bush's re-election are steamed that the U.S. Army has aided the producers of the envirocrat film backed by Al Gore and others who want to oust him from the White House.

As confirmed to NewsMax by a military spokeswoman, the Army allowed the makers of "The Day After Tomorrow" to use its Blackhawk helicopters on location in Montreal (more outsourcing of jobs by the Hollywood left to Canada) for the disaster flick, which hypes the theory of human-caused global warming.

Although Gore has admitted some of the scenarios in the film are implausible, it nonetheless serves what he sees as the noble purpose of indoctrinating the public with a Kyoto-like polemic.

Courageously, President Bush rejected the Kyoto Protocol as a threat to millions of jobs in the U.S.

Katherine Ross, the Army's director of public affairs in Los Angeles, confirmed to NewsMax that the service did in fact aid in the film's production.

Ross told NewsMax's Wes Vernon that in agreeing to participate, the Army did not know the movie would create a controversy.

She said the flick was intended to be a "summer entertainment," a "time-honored genre" of the disaster movie, not unlike "aliens landing." The Army takes no position on the theory of global warming, she said.

NewsMax has interviewed climatologist Patrick Michaels, long a critic of the "global warming" theory, who says liberal politicians and left-wing groups see "The Day After Tomorrow" as the movie that will make John Kerry president of the United States.
