"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong." Friedrich Nietzche

"Any and all non-violent, non-coercive, non-larcenous, consensual adult behavior that does not physically harm other people or their property or directly and immediately endangers same, that does not disturb the peace or create a public nuisance, and that is done in private, especially on private property, is the inalienable right of all adults. In a truly free and liberty-loving society, ruled by a secular government, no laws should be passed to prohibit such behavior. Any laws now existing that are contrary to the above definition of inalienable rights are violations of the rights of adults and should be made null and void." D. M. Mitchell (from The Myth of Inalienable Rights, at: http://dowehaverights.blogspot.com/)

Problems With Human-Caused Global Warming Theory

It is believed like religious dogma that the present global warming is all the fault of us nasty, greedy ol' humans. This is a "consensus" among scientists, we have been told . . . except, as always, there are some heretics who claim that the Earth isn't flat.

"Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus." Michael Crichton speech,2003, referring to the global warming debate.

In an article titled The Gospel According to Gore , by Mary Ellen Tiffany Gilder, she states that "Carbon dioxide has never driven temperature. In fact, the evidence shows that historically, temperature has driven CO2." (http://www.sitewave.net/news/)

So, as Ms. Gilder asks, if it isn't the CO2 causing the warming, what could it be? Well, there have been studies done that show that the Sun periodically puts out more, then less energy. Since we get all energy (and warming) either directly or indirectly (wood, coal, oil) from the Sun, it could just be possible that the Sun could effect the climate on Earth. What a novel concept.

What about the ice core samples that show that there was less CO2 in the atmosphere in pre-industrial times? A Polish scientist explains that. "Improper manipulation of data, and arbitrary rejection of readings that do not fit the pre-conceived idea on man-made global warming is common in many glaciological studies of greenhouse gases." Climate Change: Incorrect information on pre-industrial CO2 , written for the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation
March 2004, by Prof. Zbigniew Jaworowski, Chairman, Scientific Council of Central Laboratory for Radiological Protection, Warsaw, Poland. (http://www.john-daly.com/zjiceco2.htm). The good professor states that CO2 levels in pre-industrialized Europe were higher than has been reported.

"The oceans, by virtue of their enormous density and heat storage capacity, are the dominant influence on our climate. It is the heat budget and energy flows into and out of the ocean which largely determines what the global mean temperature of the surface atmosphere will settle to. These flows, especially evaporation, are quite capable of cancelling the slight effect of CO2. This is clearly evident in the tropics where there has been no temperature increase at all in spite of a 50% increase in CO2-equivalent greenhouse gases." The Deep Blue Sea, by John L. Daly (http://www.john-daly.com/deepsea.htm) (If you go to the above site, go to the bottom of the article and click on "Waiting for the Greenhouse", then click on Mr. Daly's biography. Mr. Daly died in 2004.)

Water vapor is the most important greenhouse gas. Why? Because it is 100 times as effective as CO2. Small changes in water vapor is more significant than large changes in CO2. If, for some reason, we are experiencing, or have just gone through, one of the periodic incidences of greater solar output, then more water vapor would be in the atmosphere helping to trap more heat.

If you do your homework, you will find that there are many scientists out there who do not agree that the global warming we are now experiencing is man-caused. From the research that I have done, I agree with them.
