Global warming a expensive hoax

In reply to “Renewable energy is wave of future,” letter Aug. 19.The myth of man-made global warming is starting to be unmasked. Ma rion Freistadt has apparently bought into the baseless claims of the liberal scientific zealots. These “scientists” are funded by liberal interest groups to come to these false conclusions (Search, “Fraud of East Anglia University.”) If Al Gore and his ilk were right with these outrageous claims in the 1990s, Miami and New Orleans would be 20 feet under water right now. Why doesn’t anybody ever hold these zealots accountable for their idiotic predictions?
These zealots have done enough damage to our country. Their paranoia has led to our dependence on Middle Eastern oil, which has resulted in funding of Muslim extremists whose top priority in life is to kill us. They have stifled our economy by blocking domestic oil, gas and coal production and the job-producing, “black-gold” revenue-generating Keystone pipeline.
Fossil fuel exploration, extraction and refinement could be the foundation for this country’s economic resurgence. It’s time to reject the environmentalist idiots who have held us back.
One of the best cases for exposing this fraud was made in a May 2013 opinion piece at by Peter Ferrara entitled “To The Horror of Global Warming Alarmists, Global Cooling is Here.” He cites several scientific studies across Europe in his piece. Of course, these studies will never be published in the “state-run” media in the U.S.
Freidstadt could use a little common sense also. First, I am thankful for natural global warming. If not for that, we would still be in an ice age. Second, the sun is responsible for global temperatures. Over time, the sun will go through phases that will impact the Earth’s temperature. Third, alternative energy should be developed and explored, but it will not be reliable for another 50 to 100 years. If solar or wind power was viable, when Hurricane Sandy hit the Northeast or hurricanes Katrina and Gustav hit Louisiana, we could have just flipped the switch over to wind or solar instead of firing up the gas-powered generators.

Sorry, I will not trust the alternative energy sources until I see a Boeing 787 rocket off into the clouds on solar power.
The American people need to reject the zealots referenced above and go about the business of exploiting our bountiful fossil fuel resources. If we do, it will be the lifeblood of our nation’s economy for the next century!

And now it's global COOLING! Record return of Arctic ice cap as it grows by 60% in a year

A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent.The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores.

The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year. More than 20 yachts that had planned to sail it have been left ice-bound and a cruise ship attempting the route was forced to turn back.
Some eminent scientists now believe the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century – a process that would expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading.
The disclosure comes 11 months after The Mail on Sunday triggered intense political and scientific debate by revealing that global warming has ‘paused’ since the beginning of 1997 – an event that the computer models used by climate experts failed to predict.

In March, this newspaper further revealed that temperatures are about to drop below the level that the models forecast with ‘90 per cent certainty’.
The pause – which has now been accepted as real by every major climate research centre – is important, because the models’ predictions of ever-increasing global temperatures have made many of the world’s economies divert billions of pounds into ‘green’ measures to counter climate change.
Those predictions now appear gravely flawed.

According to you, is global warming a hoax?
