December 12, 2008...For years, Al Gore and
other environmental extremists have sounded the alarm about the global climate
crisis. I agree especially after Thursday's freakish snow storm in the New
Orleans area. It is high time for
all clear minded scientists to unite behind a plan to combat global cooling.
The rare snowfall throughout the metropolitan New
Orleans area occurred on the
earliest date (December 11) in recorded history. While the airport in Kenner only
received one inch of snow, it topped five inches in Bogalusa
and eight inches in Amite.
It should be apparent to everyone now that
global cooling is a real crisis that demands immediate action. This is history
making and disturbing, so why is global cooling impacting the New
Sadly, that question is being ignored by Al
Gore, who continues to pursue the myth that humans are causing the temperature
of the earth to increase. He believes in global warming as a religion and it is
scary sight to behold. Gore is also pushing the use of carbon credits, which are
designed to supposedly limit the "carbon footprint" of individuals and
businesses. Most experts view this tactic as feel good nonsense.
is completely on board with Gore's radical global warming agenda and continues
to produce movies which warn of the climate crisis. This weekend, a new movie,
"The Day the Earth Stood Still," was released starring Keanu Reeves as an alien
visiting the earth to warn unsuspecting earthlings that they are destroying the
planet. One reviewer called the movie's ecological emphasis "preachy."
Barack Obama is fully supportive of the
Gore agenda and agrees with the global warming hysterics. He has committed to
make the fight against global warming a signature issue in his upcoming
administration. It seems like the President-Elect might have identified the
Obama and Gore should visit New
Orleans to investigate what is
really happening. The rare snowfall was an amazing sight that kids of all ages
enjoyed. Unfortunately, for those who lost power or had to deal with dangerous
road conditions, it was a much more uncomfortable situation.
According to noted geologist and hurricane
forecaster William Gray, the temperature of the earth will cool over the next
ten years. In addition, a recent report by the University of
Marshall Flight Center
showed that artic ice levels have actually increased 30% in the past year.
Orleans is not the only place in
States to face
unseasonably cold weather this year. In fact, Alaska
is dealing with the coldest start to their winter season in 16 years.
In another sign that the global warming
"crisis" is nothing more than a hoax, a new U.S. Senate report includes
statements from 650 international scientists who dispute the claims about
man-made global warming. The report maintains that the sun is the actual cause
of about half of the earth's climate change. More and more scientists are
predicting that in the next ten years, the naturally occurring solar cycles will
cause cooling conditions on earth. Dealing with global cooling, which may last
longer than the normal solar cycle of 11 years should become a top priority for
governments around the world.
Instead, Al Gore, Barack Obama, the United
Nations and Hollywood
are pointing to global warming as the crisis of the century. They should refrain
from hysterical rhetoric and try to focus on what is really happening in places
Orleans. In the Crescent
snow is not seen very often, it has appeared only eight times since 1947. It was
a rare event to say the least, almost as rare as Al Gore and his global warming
fanatics actually making sense.
