The Global Warming Hoax, A Skeptical Beginner’s Guide continues today.Â I hope everyone enjoyed last week’s article on the global warming hoax. Â This week I conclude the series of talking points I began last week.
Global Warming Activist Point #4: Â The sun doesn’t have any real effect on the Earth’s climate.
Global Warming Skeptic Rebuttal: Â Even the Wikipedia site recognizes that we’re currently in a solar maximum, at least at the time the information was collected and place in the online encyclopedia. Â Models created to predict climate on our planet from the sun’s activity show that the planet will continue to cool over the next 500 years with sporadic periods of warming. Â In addition, the sun has shown very few sunspots so far this year and the Earth’s northern hemisphere recorded record cold and frozen precipitation.
Global Warming Activist Point #5: Â Carbon Dioxide has a direct affect on temperature.
Global Warming Skeptic Rebuttal: Â Hold on there, cowboy. Â Have a look at the graph from this article that represents carbon dioxide and temperature levels over the last 600 million years. Â Anyone with half of a brain can discern from the graph that there is no correlation between carbon dioxide and temperature. Â The peaks and valleys of atmospheric carbon dioxide levels seem to have no effect on temperature. Â And to quote a thousand users on Read more:Digg.com, correlation != causation.
Global Warming Activist Point #6: Â Global warming causes more hurricanes. Â Katrina is a great example.
Global Warming Skeptic Rebuttal: Â Global warming activist sites that want to report on this theory quote an MIT scientist named Kerry Emanuel who first proposed the idea that global warming causes more hurricanes. Â Rarely do these same sites show that Emanuel recently reversed his decision. Â Just as hurricane forecasters have been wrong over the last couple of years, the global warming crowd has been wrong as well. Â With the planet warming more and more every year, according to the climate change advocates, there should be more hurricanes. Â However, that hasn’t been the case and the planet has experienced a relatively quiet hurricane season over the last two years.
