The Great Global Warming Failure

I’ve referred to Operation Desperation in a few of my posts and, while my inspiration comes from Rush Limbaugh’s Operation Chaos, it’s meant as an umbrella under which various actions of the green crowd can be grouped as signs of desperation. The global warming activists are losing a stranglehold on the people of the world, and they have the Internet and talk radio to thank for it.
I recently reported on an article that said only 20% of the big four’s news reports contained the skeptical side of global warming. Watch the cable news and I bet you’ll find the same thing: doom and gloom/the world is going to end and the only thing that can save us is to stop driving right now. The issue at hand is that the mainstream media has bought into the global warming hoax completely and without question. Many conservatives complain about bias in the media and, while I am conservative and have personally witnesses this bias, the evidence for media bias around global warming is overwhelming and completely true. Fortunately for skeptics around the world, the Internet provides a place for us to gather, share news and exchange ideas on the skeptical side of climate change. Talk radio has a huge factor in the debate as well, with local and nationally-syndicated shows leading the charge to dispel the myth that is global warming.
Without a $300 million budget, there’s only so much that can be done. However, it seems the global warming hoax is imploding in on itself. Most recently, MIT scientist Kerry Emanuel announced a change in his position on global warming and hurricanes. Emanuel, whose studies were the influence for the cover of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, now says that hurricanes will likely decrease over the next couple of centuries, which completely flies in the face of the former vice president. One of the pillars of global warming, and the accompanying scare tactics, is the damage and loss of life potential if man-made climate change isn’t stopped. Hurricane Katrina was made out to be the poster storm of global warming. However, the sad fact for the activists is that the last two hurricane cycles have been quiet relative to 2005.
Then there’s the temperature outside. Here in the south the morning low was in the mid-to-low 30s, which is chilly for mid April. Tonight’s forecast calls for the same. In fact, most of the 2007-2008 winter gave us above-average precipitation and below-normal temperatures. Records were broken across the northern hemisphere, and yet the greens still cling to global warming as if it were a life raft in a raging sea.
Don’t forget about the ice caps – another pillar of the global warming hoax. The ice caps are going to melt and much of the southeast United States will be under water. Except the caps aren’t melting. If anything, they’re refreezing at a record rate and, in the case of Antarctica, the ice is increasing.
The good news is that people are beginning to see through the climate change scam and the lies that make up the global warming myth are beginning to crumble. With hurricanes, temperatures and ice caps out of the way, what’s really left for the greens to use as a scare tactic? Until the next drought or hurricane hits, expect the popularity of global warming to decline as well, with or without a $300 million advertising campaign to convince us otherwise.
