WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOUR CUP OVERFLOWED FROM MELTING ICE?
Global Warming isn't real.
In 2006, Al Gore's bestselling, "An Inconvenient Truth" hit the world with dire warnings about a planetary emergency -- with scare tactics designed to make people panic when they should be thinking. We only have one Earth, and it is our duty to use it and care for it as well as we can. What that doesn't mean is that we should give into hysteria, and it certainly doesn't mean we should attempt to protect our environment through laws that endanger people's lives. What it does mean is that we should research the real science behind what's actually going on (or not going on) with our planet and act accordingly. Real science is exactly what this book provides. Point by point, Crandall sets the record straight and demonstrates that An Inconvenient Truth is nothing but a pack of convenient lies. Be educated. Be Informed.
Don't Fall for the Propaganda. Gore makes C02 the villain when it is the HERO. Every plant, animal and mankind would die without CO2.
With the use of satellite imaging, we are able to detect more wildfires than ever before. This doesn’t mean we have more wildfires.
Here is the graph AIT is referring to. I’ve corrected the inaccurate term:
AIT’s graph is very misleading because it claims to count major wildfires when the actual study is counting the number of recorded wildfires!
EARTH IS JUST RIGHT
“The greenhouse gases on Venus are so thick that its temperatures are far too hot for humans. The greenhouse gases surrounding Mars are almost nonexistent, so the temperature there is far too cold.” (AIT p. 26)
MORE BAD SCIENCE
“This remarkable and patiently collected daily record now stands as one of the most important series of measurements in the history or science. “The pre-industrial concentration of CO2 was 280 parts per million. In 2005, that level, measured high above Mauna Loa, was 381 parts per million.”
Until you notice the “drastic” change equals only one hundredth of one percent of our atmosphere. Of that 0.01%, only 3.4% (totaling 0.00246% of our atmosphere) is caused by humans."
HOT WEATHER IS NOTHING NEW
The heat wave was due to an atmospheric anomaly, not global warming. Even the United Nations Environment Program agrees, blaming the extreme weather on an anti-cyclone that held back rain.
ARTIC ICE: WHAT IS NORMAL?
“Approximately 10 million km2 of ice melts every summer in approximately 145 days which is a melt rate of 26,627 square miles per day.” (Dr. Tim Ball) That sounds pretty bad, but is it? Actually, it’s perfectly normal, healthy, and average.
“Annual number of strong-to-violent category F3 to F5 tornados during the March-to-August tornado season in the U.S. between 1950 and 2006. U.S. National Climatic Data Center, U.S. Department of Commerce 2006 Climate Review (20). During this period, world hydrocarbon use increased 6-fold, while violent tornado frequency decreased by 43%.” (“Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide,” http://www.oism.org/ Used with permission.)
What Others Are Saying About
A Convenient Lie: Global Warming
By Bradley J. Crandall
Ice cap at the South Pole provides enormous data. For me, the most powerful data point in this book is the study undertaken by real scientists at the South Pole, which has NEVER melted and can be dated back 100's of thousands of years! The Earth naturally goes through 15,000 year cycles and has survived much higher levels of carbon dioxide levels than what we have in the present day. In fact, higher temperatures and higher carbon dioxide levels have brought forth abundant life on this planet. Read the book, make decisions based and rational thought, not feelings or fear.
Always follow the money... In 151 pages, Mr. Crandall, with the help of many charts and graphs, points out the many lies and myths people like Al Gore and many like him try to sell an uninformed public. The book is easy to follow and doesn't get bogged down in theories and "maybe this will happen" if we don't give the government more power and money. Easy to follow and to the point.
There is a defensible viewpoint on climate change. The book deserves 5 stars because the author, a friend of mine, shows no fear in expressing opinions contrary to powerful forces. If we cherish free speech, then we can support it by respecting contrary ideas. Point by point Bradley demonstrates that there is an opposing defensible viewpoint on the complex and perennial question, "what's up with this frappin' weather?" The answer is not easy, not simple.
