The problem is that science once again took the back set to power, profit and politics. Former Vice President Al Gore will likely become the major villain in this low point in advancement of science, as he should well be. By making science the pawn of politics he has made it impossible for legitimate scientific debate to even happen. Opponents to the Sacred Scripture of Global Warming lost their jobs, were hounded into silence and had the careers destroyed.
As evidence mounts that Global Warming IS NOT occurring and, in fact, we are already in a major cooling cycle, climate priests are changing their scripture to read "climate change," perhaps the most stupid acknowledgement of a truth as old as the earth itself. If one thing has happened over the last 8 million years, the climate has changed..... over and often.
There is much we can, should do, and even must do to improve life on earth for all its peoples and its environment. False hysteria for political power accomplishes nothing except destroy science itself.
From today's U.K. Daily Mail:
Forget global warming - it's Cycle 25 we need to worry about (and if NASA scientists are right the Thames will be freezing over again)
- Met Office releases new figures which show no warming in 15 yearsThe supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.A painting, dated 1684, by Abraham Hondius depicts one of manyfrost fairs on the River Thames during the mini ice age
