Disturbance in the Force

Is it possible? In this world of hysteria and doomsday predictions…is it really possible that the religion of Global Warming is losing ground? Perhaps.

"Following the U.S. Senate's vote today on a global warming measure, it is an opportune time to examine the recent and quite remarkable momentum shift taking place in climate science. Many former believers in catastrophic man-made global warming have recently reversed themselves and are now climate skeptics."

And, these skeptics aren’t simple-minded Neanderthals such as myself. They are prominent scientists! The list of dissenters is filled with Geophysicists, Geologists, Astrophysicists, Mathematicians, Climate Researchers…you get the idea. These individuals used to be a part of the so-called “consensus.” But, they have turned from the Dark Side.

I feel a disturbance in the Force.

In a very related news story, the environmentalist group known as the World Wide Fund for Nature has revealed a new catastrophic prophesy. In recent years, the official dogma of the church of Global Warming has been that we only have 10 years to save our planet. By 2017, we will have passed the point of no return. At that point, we will have no ability to curb the spread of Global Warming, and we will certainly perish for our environmental sins. We must repent from our wicked ways within the next 10 years.

Well, for the World Wide Fund for Nature, 10 years wasn’t soon enough. They now say that we have a mere 5 years to save the planet. According to them:

Governments have until 2012 to ‘plant the seeds of change’ and make positive moves to limit carbon emissions.”

Why not go with nuclear power? That would certainly cut back on carbon emissions and generate sufficient power for our needs. Of course, that idea doesn’t sit well with the World Wide Fund for Nature.

“We can slash carbon emissions and meet global energy demand without resorting to the red herring of nuclear power.

The big question is whether the world's statesmen will have the strength and vision to make this happen.”

See what I mean? They want us to use alternative sources of energy. But, when we try to use the most efficient, cost-effective, and powerful source of energy at our disposal, they protest. Unbelievable.

Side note…look at how many times the World Wide Fund for Nature calls on the Government to save us. To them, it is never the role of private businesses to find solutions for their own energy usage. It is always the job of Governments.

Could they be more dependent?
