The global warming fiction is unraveling. Leaked emails showing attempts by so-called scientists in England to suppress evidence contrary to global warming; Phil Jones, the director of climate research at the University of East Anglia where the emails were hacked has resigned; the president of the Czech Republic says global warming is a politician's myth; in Denmark, where the climate conference is being held this week, a local newspaper reports the country is "rife with CO2 fraud and the entire global warming myth is a comprehensive tax scam"; a New Zealand scientist wants the Copenhagen conference canceled.
Anyone who seriously studied this issue had to be suspect from the start. The Earth has cooled, not warmed, during the last 11 years. No one on the pro-global warming side will debate anyone who disagrees. Scientific magazines accept global warming as fact and refuse to print articles that disagreed. Most importantly, look at the people pushing global warming. They are mostly control freaks who want more power and money for themselves and less freedom for you. That should tell you all you need to know.
