Global Warming Hoax: A Skeptical Beginner’s Guide, Part II

The Global Warming Hoax, A Skeptical Beginner’s Guide continues today.  I hope everyone enjoyed last week’s article on the global warming hoax.  This week I conclude the series of talking points I began last week.

Global Warming Activist Point #4:  The sun doesn’t have any real effect on the Earth’s climate.
Global Warming Skeptic Rebuttal:  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.  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.  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:  Carbon Dioxide has a direct affect on temperature.
Global Warming Skeptic Rebuttal:  Hold on there, cowboy.   Have a look at the graph from this article that represents carbon dioxide and temperature levels over the last 600 million years.  Anyone with half of a brain can discern from the graph that there is no correlation between carbon dioxide and temperature.  The peaks and valleys of atmospheric carbon dioxide levels seem to have no effect on temperature.  And to quote a thousand users on Read, correlation != causation.

Global Warming Activist Point #6:  Global warming causes more hurricanes.  Katrina is a great example.
Global Warming Skeptic Rebuttal:  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.  Rarely do these same sites show that Emanuel recently reversed his decision.   Just as hurricane forecasters have been wrong over the last couple of years, the global warming crowd has been wrong as well.  With the planet warming more and more every year, according to the climate change advocates, there should be more hurricanes.  However, that hasn’t been the case and the planet has experienced a relatively quiet hurricane season over the last two years.

A social and fiscal conservative, I scour the news for information that disputes the current man-made global warming indoctrination that takes place around the world. I take a rather sarcastic approach to reporting on the nonsense being spewed by the talking heads in the media and the governments around the world.

    Thanks for the help guys.
    It won’t be ocean water that we will be drowning in, but a flood of dis-information and down-right lies if our western culture of tabloid journalism doesn’t turn around soon. Two conditions are needed to change this abismal “news” condition: 1) the availability of factual information and reasoned analysis and 2) the general populace decideing that it is not willing to accept being lied to.
    Thanks for helping on the first part. G-d help us on the second.

    I have a good experiment to try on your Algore loving friends that have drank the global warming kool-aid. Fill a glass with ice cubes. Then fill the reminder of the glass with water and then set out at room temperature. If Algore and the IPCC are correct, when the ice melts it should overflow the glass, analogous to the polar icepack melting and flooding Manhattan. But if doesn’t. Just one of the many ways to show the AGW theories are wrong!
