Thinking Out Loud
By the time you read this Al Gore will have appeared (April 24, 2009) before the House Energy And Commerce
Committee preaching his brand of Gospel on Global Warming to the choir headed by Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA). Initially,
this was to be a debate between Gore and a leading critic of Gore’s dire predictions, Lord Christopher Monckton, a former
policy advisor to Margaret Thatcher. Alas, upon landing in Washington Monckton was greeted by a messenger from Waxman’s
committee, withdrawing its invitation to speak before Congress.
Too bad the debate didn’t happen, because it would have brought the world one step closer to the truth about the
falsity of the shibboleths and nostrums of the religion – it’s a cult, really – of climate alarmism.
Clearly, we are not there yet, but the truth will ultimately prevail as it always does! Already some fifty-nine
scientists from around the world have added their names to the tally of some 700-plus skeptical scientists now on the Senate
Minority Report questioning Mr. Gore’s theories about the climate. And that, dear reader, is more than thirteen times the
number of U.N. scientists who authored the media-hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers. Many of the skeptical
scientists are affiliated with noteworthy institutions (Princeton University as well as numerous others) plus NASA, the U.S.
Navy and the U.S. Defense Department.
Additionally, noted Professor Dr. Shigenon Maruyama of the Tokyo Institute of Technology’s Department of Earth and
Planetary sciences and many of his colleagues expressed skepticism over the IPCC’s fourth and latest assessment that any
observed global temperature increases in the 20th century was due to “[a]anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations.”
Moreover at a recent (last year) symposium of the Japan Geoscience Union a poll of the participants showed that 90% did not
believe the IPCC report.
I could go on ad infinitum, but suffice to say Al Gore best not look back because the truth is gaining on
him. Magna est veritas, et praevalet (truth is great and it does prevail!)?
