Returning to the topic of the thread I have never been convinced by the Global warming argument and I have heard from many different sources that there has been no overall rise in Global temperatures since about 2003 maybe earlier and in fact that it has been cooling in that period.
The problem is that any statistics can be manipulated to sell the story you want sell. I learned this when I was doing my GCSE science & maths coursework.

I say "Fight Global Warming with Central Air Conditioning". Tis the height of vanity to believe we will ever have any control over the effects of the sun. Sure, we can pollute a river but destroy the planet? Never in billion years.
The Kyoto Protocol calls for mandatory carbon dioxide reductions of 30% from developed countries like the U.S. Reducing man-made CO2 emissions this much would have an undetectable effect on climate while having a devastating effect on the U.S. economy. Can you drive your car 30% less, reduce your winter heating 30%? Pay 20-50% more for everything from automobiles to zippers? And that is just a down payment, with more sacrifices to come later. Such drastic measures, even if imposed equally on all countries around the world, would reduce total human greenhouse contributions from CO2 by about 0.035%. This is much less than the natural variability of Earth's climate system! While the greenhouse reductions would exact a high human price, in terms of sacrifices to our standard of living, they would yield statistically negligible results in terms of measurable impacts to climate change. There is no expectation that any statistically significant global warming reductions would come from the Kyoto Protocol.
" There is no dispute at all about the fact that even if punctiliously observed, (the Kyoto Protocol) would have an imperceptible effect on future temperatures -- one-twentieth of a degree by 2050. "

Exactly !! This is all about MONEY and how the public can be manipulated.

in the video, he starts to make a point that the whole 'global warming' scheme is utter 'nonsense' and that it is nothing more than a made up political scheme to manipulate carbone trading, tax the public..... and then he gets cut off !!!
hahahahahahahha how obvious can you get on that one?
