Global Warming

Cal Thomas | Syndicated columnist | Wednesday, June 5, 2002

The Bush administration says global warming is real and that humans are partly the cause. The first part is correct, but nothing new. The second part is highly debatable. For the other side of science you are not hearing in the media, go to the website

The earth has warmed and cooled over thousands of years. It is a natural cycle. Between 1940 and the late 1970s when fossil fuel burning rapidly increased, global temperatures fell. The models used to include that global warming is a problem are flawed. The troposphere - the first few miles above the earth's surface -- should also be warming, but it isn't. Surface measurements are not as good as satellites. The satellites show no warming. Look at NASA's Goddard web page for information.

We are being rushed to a judgment that is not warranted by big government liberals and wimpy politicians who think giving in to the environmental lobby will win them votes. Check it out for yourself and don't believe what big government or the media are telling you about global warming. I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
