Global Warming: Alternative Views Welcome

People always ask me, "Where can I go to read the truth about issues?" On global warming, you might want to check out the June 25 issue of the Weekly Standard.

Sallie Baliunas is a research scientist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. James Glassman is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

They say Bush is right on global warming. He wants to study the issue some more before any action is taken. They say that climate changes. "Over centuries, responding to stresses internal and external, the earth is either warming or cooling, just as the temperature from day to day heats or chills. It could stay the same, but not for very long. Climate change, then, is not a calamity, but a truism."

Before conclusions are reached, one should look at those pushing the global warming scenario. They are people who want government to have more control over our lives. They want to limit individual freedom. They are using scare tactics, as they always do. Read the Weekly Standard June 25 issue.
