An article entitled "Al Gore ally caught in Global Warming fraud."
Dr Hansen, A close ally of Al Gore in the Golbal Warming hustle has been caught (once again) red handed committing fraud.
He claimed that October 2008 was the hottest October in recent history. In reality it was colder than average in most of the world. To perpetuate this fraud, he picks and chooses which areas of the earth to take temperatures from. Also, most of the temperatures are taken in large cities rather than rural areas. Everyone knows that large cities are naturally hotter than the surrounding area.

I could use some of that Global Warming tonight.
We had our first snow last week. It started again early this afternoon, and four inches is expected by tomorrow morning, with an additional inch or two by afternoon. A low of 24 F. isforecast for tonight, with highs of only low 30s for the next several days. For mid-November, this is a bit early for this area.
If this is any indication of what's in store for us this winter (actually, winter doesn't officially begin for another month), we'll have to re-mortgage our homes to pay the heating bills!

An article entitled "Liberals Want Global Warming "Carbon Taxes" as Temperature Drops"
During the 1970s, the global temperature was DECREASING. How is that possible if there’s an iron-clad relationship between pollution, increasing CO2 and increasing global temperature? The truth is that the Global Warming Theory was disproven in the 1970s when the global temperature dropped for nearly a decade –while factory pollution continued to increase. The Global Warming Theory is being disproven again right now as the global temperature has been dropping for the last six years.
Natural variations in heat output from the sun are the reason for changes in the temperature of the earth. There have been ice ages and warm periods long before the first factory was built. The heat from the sun has varied in the past and will vary in the future. Notice the Global Warming crowd is not too thrilled with the idea of placing a satellite in orbit about the sun to measure the heat output from the sun outside the earth’s atmosphere. This would prove beyond a doubt that the sun’s natural heat fluctuations are causing global warming or cooling. Real scientists would want to rule out all other possibilities and get as much data as possible. The Global Warming people are charlatans and scam artists, not real scientists.
I've lived most of my life in Pennsylvania. The worst winters were in the late 1970s, particularly 1977. Back then the popular media refrain was that we were entering a "new Ice Age."
Thecold weather of this winter and last ishelping to dampen the credibility among the masses of the "Global Warming" hucksters and religious zealots.
This winter has been savagely cold in a place showcased for recent unusual warmth. That place is Alaska. Temperatures in central AK (Fairbanks, Tok, Tanana Valley, Coldfoot, Eagle among others) have been in the minus-20 to minus-60 range for over four weeks. Anchorage had a string of sub-zero nights, a record going back to 1999. Essentially AK is in a deep-freeze -- its normal condition! At this very moment, the NWS forecast for Eagle (about 200 miles east of Fairbanks) is for highs -- that's today's HIGH temperature -- of 40 to 55 degrees below zero. Break out the bikinis!
The National Ice Center shows a map of Arctic Ice, and it is extensive. The entire Arctic Ocean is iced-over, and the thickness is INCREASING, not decreasing like cry-wolf GloWarmers are claiming. In fact the entire Bering Strait is iced over, and the Labrador ice sheet is as robust as ever. Hudson Bay is one giant hockey rink!
I predict that the inevitable will happen: The normal climate cycle will bring a prolonged cold spell to North America. Then another inevitability will occur: The New World Order will pursue their objective of de-industrializing the world by proclaiming that whether Global Warming or Global Cooling occurs, it doesn't matter: Both are cause by man ("anthropogenic causes") and the only antidote is to screw the Middle Class of the West and introduce miserable primitive conditions worldwide.

An article entitled ‘Greenhouse Theory Disproved a Century Ago"
The claim that carbon dioxide (CO2) can increase air temperatures by "trapping" infrared radiation (IR) ignores the fact that in 1909 physicist R.W. Wood disproved the popular 19th Century thesis that greenhouses stayed warm by trapping IR. Unfortunately, many people who claim to be scientists are unaware of Wood's experiment which was originally published in the Philosophical magazine , 1909, vol 17, p319-320. Wood was an expert on IR. His accomplishments included inventing both IR and UV (ultraviolet) photography. Wood constructed two identical small greenhouses. The description implies the type of structure a gardener would refer to as a "coldframe" rather than a building a person could walk into. He lined the interior with black cardboard which would absorb radiation and convert it to heat which would heat the air through conduction. The cardboard would also produce radiation. He covered one greenhouse with a sheet of transparent rock salt and the other with a sheet of glass. The glass would block IR and the rock salt would allow it to pass. During the first run of the experiment the rock salt greenhouse heated faster due to IR from the sun entering it but not the glass greenhouse. He then set up another pane of glass to filter the IR from the sun before the light reached the greenhouses. The result from this run was that the greenhouses both heated to about 50 C with less than a degree difference between the two. Wood didn't indicate which was warmer or whether there was any difference in the thermal conductivity between the glass sheet and the rock salt. A slight difference in the amount of heat transfered through the sheets by conduction could explain such a minor difference in temperature. The two sheets probably didn't conduct heat at the same rate. The experiment conclusively demonstrates that greenhouses heat up and stay warm by confining heated air rather than by trapping IR. If trapping IR in an enclosed space doesn't cause higher air temperature than CO2 in the atmosphere cannot cause higher air temperatures. The heated air in the greenhouses couldn't rise higher than the sheets that covered the tops of the greenhouses. Heated air outside is free to rise allowing colder air to fall to the ground. Atmospheric CO2 is even less likely to function as a barrier to IR or reflect it back to reheat the ground or water than the sheet of glass in Wood's greenhouse. The blackened cardboard in Wood's greenhouses was a very good radiator of IR as is typical of black substances. The water that covers 70% of earth's surface is a very poor radiator and produces only limited amounts of IR as is typical of transparent substances. Water releases heat through evaporation rather than radiation. The glass sheet provided a solid barrier to IR. Atmospheric CO2 is widely dispersed comprising less than 400 parts per million in the atmosphere. Trapping IR with CO2 would be like trying to confine mice with a chain link fence. Glass reflects a wider spectrum of IR than interacts with CO2. The glass sheets reflected IR back toward the floor of the greenhouse. CO2 doesn't reflect IR. At the time of Wood's experiment, it was believed that CO2 and other gas molecules became hotter after absorbing IR. Four years later Niels Bohr reported his discovery that the absorption of specific wavelengths of light didn't cause gas atoms/molecules to become hotter. Instead, the absorption of specific wavelengths of light caused the electrons in an atom/molecule to move to a higher energy state. After absorption of light of a specific wavelength an atom couldn't absorb additional radiation of that wavelength without first emitting light of that wavelength. (Philosophical Magazine Series 6, Volume 26 July 1913, p. 1-25) Unlike the glass which reflects IR back where it comes from, CO2 molecules emit IR up and sideways as well as down. In the time interval between absorbing and reemitting radiation, CO2 molecules allow IR to pass them by. Glass continuously reflects IR. Those who claim that CO2 molecules in the atmosphere can cause heating by trapping IR have yet to provide any empirical scientific evidence to prove such a physical process exists. The experiment by R.W. Wood demonstrates that even a highly reflective covering cannot cause heating by trapping IR in a confined space. There is no way CO2, which at best only affects a small portion of the IR produced by earth's surface, can heat the atmosphere by trapping IR. Contrary to the lie repeated in news stories about climate, science doesn't say that CO2 is causing higher temperatures by trapping IR. Empirical science indicates that no such process exists in this physical universe.

An article entitled "Global Warming Scam Getting Old and Cold"
The liberal establishment has compared questioning global warming with Holocaust denial and demanded that scientists employed by universities who show skepticism or persist in examining the evidence be denied tenure, which means the end of an academic career.
Scientific records of temperatures around the world have only been kept since the early 19th century, and even then they were sparse and scattered. Modern meteorology has only really gotten started in the last hundred years. Before that, scientists had to estimate climate history based on tree rings, pollen levels in different layers of soil and using other indicators. Scientists acknowledge that there have been ice ages and warm periods over the millennia even though there was no man-made pollution. Despite the claim that pollution is causing irreversible global warming, there was a cooling period in the 1970s, and global temperatures have been dropping again over the last six years.
The earth goes through warming and cooling periods, which are caused by variations in the heat output from the sun. Astronomers know that the sun has "sun spots" that have an 11 year cycle. Perhaps there are other cycles that affect heat output that the sun goes through that take dozens or hundreds or thousands of years.
Of course, this will make no difference at all to the tree-huggers and liberals, who have adopted "global warming" as their latest sacred cow in order to oppose capitalism and demand a socialist world government exercising control over every aspect of our lives. The environmental alarmists have already replaced the term "global warming" with the term "climate change" to try to avoid becoming a laughing stock as snow piles up in Seattle and the eastern US gets pummeled with record ice storms. What do you want to bet in another few years we’ll see Al Gore make another movie threatening us with another Ice Age if we don’t enact drastic new laws that allow government to heavily fine and tax the few remaining manufacturing plants still in the US –until they give up and move to China?
