The G8 Tilts at Solar Windmills

Chinese and Indian leaders have been reluctant to make commitments on cutting gases, arguing that they are not responsible for decades' accumulation of carbon levels in the atmosphere, and that developed countries have a moral obligation to lead in cutting emissions. -- Don Lee

How does one do battle with the bogeyman? How do you slay a dragon? Or why would you spend 45 trillion dollars to tilt at windmills?

Don Quiote believed that windmills were dragons, could the most power men and woman in the world believe in anthropogenic Global Warming?

Apparently the G8 is considering the answers to all of the above. That is the undertaking that they have agreed to as they have pledged to seek, to consider and adopt as a goal the cutting in half of greenhouse gases and the reduction of carbon emissions by 2050 but only if China and Indian agree that their countries will do the same. (see here)

China and Indian looking to their own economic self interests wish to remain unencumbered by any agreement on economy restrictive emission reduction regulations voicing the point that all ready developed nations have caused the problem, their countries are only just beginning to pollute the atmoshere.

This argument falls flat when people understand that China now has become the single worst emitter of so-called green house gases.

Even so, the simple pledge that the G8 made has infuriated environmentalist that front for Investment speculators who are using Global warming/Climate Change as the next multi-trillion dollar commodities trading market. The world’s leader’s cautious approach is just not fast enough for those who are lining up to cash in on Global warming. (See video)

It doesn’t matter that it has all been disproved, carbon emissions are not heating up our planet, our planet has not heated up since 2003 and scientist say that it may not heat up again until 2015. There is no carbon emission caused global warming so why are the heads of the industrial free world swearing on their sacred honor to seek, to consider to adopt as a goal binding resolutions to cut carbon emissions?

Pressure! The whole world has gone after Al Gore’s debunked theory and rather than show leadership and denounce the folly world leaders do what politicians are good at doing, giving in to what is popular but wrong.
As founder of the weather channel John Coleman has said Global warming is a fraud.

Here are John’s own comments on the subject:

Hello Al Gore; Hello UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Your science is flawed; your hypothesis is wrong; your data is manipulated. And, may I add, your scare tactics are deplorable. The Earth does not have a fever. Carbon dioxide does not cause significant global warming.

The focus on atmospheric carbon dioxide grew out a study by Roger Revelle who was an esteemed scientist at the Scripps Oceanographic Institute. He took his research with him when he moved to Harvard and allowed his students to help him process the data for his paper. One of those students was Al Gore. That is where Gore got caught up in this global warming frenzy.

Revelle’s paper linked the increases in carbon dioxide, CO2, in the atmosphere with warming. It labeled CO2 as a greenhouse gas.

Charles Keeling, another researcher at the Scripps Oceanographic Institute, set up a system to make continuous CO2 measurements. His graph of these increases has now become known as the Keeling Curve. When Charles Keeling died in 2005, his son David, also at Scripps, took over the measurements. Here is what the Keeling curve shows: an increase in CO2 from 315 parts per million in 1958 to 385 parts per million today, an increase of 70 parts per million or about 20 percent.

All the computer models, all of the other findings, all of the other angles of study, all come back to and are based on CO2 as a significant greenhouse gas. It is not.

Here is the deal about CO2, carbon dioxide. It is a natural component of our atmosphere. It has been there since time began. It is absorbed and emitted by the oceans. It is used by every living plant to trigger photosynthesis. Nothing would be green without it. And we humans; we create it. Every time we breathe out, we emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. It is not a pollutant. It is not smog. It is a naturally occurring invisible gas.

Let me illustrate. I estimate that this square in front of my face contains 100,000 molecules of atmosphere. Of those 100,000 only 38 are CO2; 38 out of a hundred thousand. That makes it a trace component. Let me ask a key question: how can this tiny trace upset the entire balance of the climate of Earth? It can’t. That’s all there is to it; it can’t.

The UN IPCC has attracted billions of dollars for the research to try to make the case that CO2 is the culprit of run-away, man-made global warming. The scientists have come up with very complex creative theories and done elaborate calculations and run computer models they say prove those theories.
John Coleman, Founder of the Weather Channel

The G8 would do good to steer away from the politically correct debunked non-science of Global warming and address real problems like restraining free market economies that are attempting to take over the world.

But that’s just my opinion!
