‘Chicken Little’ Politics
Here’s what might be classified as a “must read” as posted by American Prosperity on July 26th:
“Weather Channel Founder Debunks Global Warming Hoax”
“An award-winning meteorologist with 60 years of experience and founder of the Weather Channel has produced a video explaining the history of the man-made global warming hoax.
“John Coleman was also a former broadcast meteorologist of the year of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). However, after being a member for several years, he quit the AMS after it became very clear to him that ‘the politics had gotten in the way of the science.’ Coleman explains in the video that there is no man-made global warming, and why he’s sure about this.
“The well-respected weatherman says that if there were evidence of man-made global warming, he would have dedicated his life to stopping it. ‘I love our wonderful planet Earth. If I thought it was threatened by global warming, I would devote my life to stopping the warming!’
“Environmental activists now call it ‘climate change’ instead of global warming because the warming has stopped, Coleman added, and $ 4.7 billion in taxpayer money is funding ‘bogus reports’ and ‘bogus research.’
“Coleman explains that any so-called ‘climate change’ is extremely negligible from a long term perspective and nothing unusual or alarming. He points out that Antarctic sea ice is close to an all-time high, and the polar bear population is as high as it’s been in recorded history.
“In regard to rising sea levels, Coleman says: ‘It’s rising at about the rate of about six inches per hundred years, as part of this inter-glacial period. When North America was covered in a 400 foot thick ice core at the end of the last ice age, the oceans were low, and as that ice melted, of course the oceans have risen. That rise has been gentle and is not important.’
“Coleman says in the video there are 9,000 PhDs and 31,000 scientists who have signed a petition saying that the CO2 global warming theory is a hoax. These climate change ‘non-believers’ aren’t heard by most Americans because they don’t receive government funding. And they aren’t covered by the mainstream media because it almost always promotes the climate change theory.
“This damning indictment by an experienced and well-respected meteorologist proves that the ‘climate change’ movement is primarily (if not all) politically based. Its ultimate goal is to make Americans the enemy of the planet (so they’ll agree to greater government control over their behavior) – and reduce America’s use of oil, gas and coal-based energy sources.
“If you hear someone talk about ‘climate change’ and that America should do something, show them this video as proof that it’s nothing more than left-wing, ‘Chicken Little’ politics.” — [Amen!]
