Global Warming Again

You may or may not be tired of hearing about global warming, but this is an important issue because many politicians and other leaders are trying to use the hysteria they have created to grab power and money.

At Jewish World Review Dr. Walter Williams writes a column called "Global Warming Hysteria". As usual, Dr. Williams cuts to the chase and also tells you where you can find some good information:
There's an excellent booklet available from the National Center for Policy Analysis (ncpa.org) titled "A Global Warming Primer." Some of its highlights are:

"Over long periods of time, there is no close relationship between CO2 levels and temperature."

"Humans contribute approximately 3.4 percent of annual CO2 levels" compared to 96.6 percent by nature.

"There was an explosion of life forms 550 million years ago (Cambrian Period) when CO2 levels were 18 times higher than today. During the Jurassic Period, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, CO2 levels were as much as nine times higher than today."

What about public school teachers frightening little children with tales of cute polar bears dying because of global warming? The primer says, "Polar bear numbers increased dramatically from around 5,000 in 1950 to as many as 25,000 today, higher than any time in the 20th century." The primer gives detailed sources for all of its findings, and it supplies us with information we can use to stop politicians and their environmental extremists from doing a rope-a-dope on us.
Here's a link to the National Center for Policy Analysis. And here is a link to "A Global Warming Primer". Enjoy.

How confusing. You cite the NCPA and Frontpage Magazine as your sources? Honestly? A libertarian think tank and a conservative rag, respectively? Are you kidding me? You, truly, have no critical thinking skills whatsoever.

Ken, you must be pretty disappointed in this blog, then. You're entitled to your opinion, of course. My own opinion is that anyone who relies on the mainstream media or other liberal sources for his "news" and "facts" is the one with no critical thinking skills whatsoever. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
