Global Warming — Fact or Fiction?
So I learned something the other day. For the last several decades (more so in the 1980’s than in the last 16 years), we have heard warnings and cautions from scientists and environmental groups about global warming and the affects humans have on the environment. The other day, however, I read several articles. The most pointed being this one. This is a testimony from an Emeritus Professor who has quite a resume for evaluating climactic changes. Here’s an except:
Satellite data show no appreciable warming of the global atmosphere since 1979. In fact, if one ignores the unusual El Nino year of 1998, one sees a cooling trend.
I must have been in a bubble lately, because I had just accepted global warming as a fact. I never really worried about it, but I just assumed it was something that we would/should deal with at a later time when it became more of an issue. Little did I realize that this issue was already thrown out as a unproven (and more likely, disproved) theory.
So here’s my real question… why didn’t the media tell us that global warming wasn’t really an issue and had basically been disproved? They were up in arms letting us all know about it. We heard about it for years; the hole in the Ozone layer, the rise is sea levels, the greenhouse affect, yada yada, the sky is falling. All junk. But then when they were proven false, the media didn’t come out and say, “Hey, this is now a false assumtion and the scientific community has realized that it is wrong.”
Perhaps they did say it, but they didn’t do it with the trumpets that they used in pushing their original agenda. I just find it interesting how once again, the media shows how they like to control American thought.
