Response to (Arizona Daily Star article) 'GOP's Huntsman a voice of reason on global warming'
I found it odd that the name of the author of "GOP's Huntsman a voice of reason on global warming", an editorial that ran first in the LA Times and yesterday in the Daily Star, was not printed along with the piece. Would the author be the LA Times editor in chief, Russ Stanton? Since the author's name was not included in the re-print, I'll assume it was editor Stanton ... if I'm mistaken, Mr. Stanton has my apologies in advance, and he can pass my comments on to whoever wrote the editorial.
Do presidential candidate Jon Hunstman and Los Angeles Times editor Russ Stanton (or whoever wrote the piece) understand that the earth's oceans and plant life emit 30 times more CO2 into the atmosphere than do humans? Or that polar bear populations are at an all time high? Are Hunstman and Stanton (or whoever wrote the LA Times piece) aware of the 30,000 scientists who have signed on to a class action lawsuit against Al Gore, for fraudulent misrepresentation of information in former vice-president Gore's movie, 'An Inconvenient Truth'? Or that University Nuevo Leon professor turned climatologist Nasif Nahle has published a paper showing that CO2 and water vapor, when they mix in the atmosphere, decrease infrared radiation emissions/absorptions, the exact opposite of the 'greenhouse effect' that Global Warming models are based on? Do Hunstman and Stanton (or ???) know that scientists from 18 institutions worldwide conducted a series of experiments at CERN, the high-energy physics complex in Switzerland, and concluded that, drum-roll, it is the SUN (duh?) and its magnetic fluctuations (ergo, not CO2 emmissions) that drive the earth's climate? This makes perfect sense, because the Sun has been relatively quiet for, what, about a decade now? Perfectly coinciding with the decline in global temperatures over that time period. Yes, you read that correctly, contrary to what the media keeps trying to pound into our heads, the earth is in a cooling trend and has been for a decade. E-mails leaked from East Anglica University, where Phil Jones and his colleagues do their climate research, document numerous e-discussions within which climatologists exchange tips on how to manipulate data to exaggerate a warming trend and, even, discuss ways to "hide the decline", the "decline" being the aforementioned current global cooling trend. Possibly the best indication of the current global cooling trend (and maybe the most trustworthy, considering the manipulation of data that has been going on at East Anglica, and other institutions I assume, for years), is the Argo oceanic sensor network. Climate researchers now have access to a sensor system dispersed across the world's oceans (Argo) which has shown a slight but steady decline in ocean temperatures since at least 2003 when the entire network came on-line and began gathering data. Ocean temps from around the world, sampled regularly and at multiple depths, are a pretty good gauge of what's really happening with our climate.
So, who's really 'running from science'?
CO2 is a tiny, tiny component of what we call "greenhouse gases". "Global Warming", more recently referred to as "Climate Change" (maybe the people who are driving this are painfully aware of the fact that the earth is cooling and they intend to blame that on carbon emmissions as well???), provides a vehicle for the global elite to tax nations dependent on their respective carbon footprints. This is about money. The major component, by far, of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is water vapor. (Maybe they can figure out a way to tax grandma when she puts the tea kettle on?)
Personally, I'm not worried about climate change, because I live in Tucson Arizona. From all that I've been able to discern, from actually digging and reading papers and listening to all the scientists out there who refute the Global Warming model but are refused a voice in the mainstream media (and in papers like the Daily Star), it looks to me like we can look forward to cooler temperatures here in the desert in coming years. Yea!
