Don't blindly believe climate change claims

Don't believe claims of a former Victoria College physics professor nor the political crackpot Al Gore, who tries to cram lies portrayed in his whimsical documentary film, "An Inconvenient Truth," that mankind is to blame for climate change, if indeed it is happening.
And certainly don't believe rantings from hacks in our government nor United Nations that bases conclusions on inaccurate computer models that don't include all greenhouse gas components because it screws up the data they seek to employ in their wealth redistribution scheme through buying and selling of carbon tax credits.
Just because someone is a celebrity or has a Ph.D. behind his or her name doesn't make him or her an authority, unless that person is a prominent, independent climatologist, like Fred Singer, a research professor at George Mason University who doesn't depend upon financial grants from environmental groups trying to alter our political and economic landscape for self-serving reasons.
As Singer points out, no climate computer model includes the effects of water vapor that often nullifies increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide, simply because of the near impossibility to predict when, where or the extent cooling rain and cloud shading will have on our solar-bombarded earth.
Moreover, oft-cited "hockey stick" plots of skyrocketing warming has been shown to be based on fundamental mathematical flaws to the point in which global warming demagogues worry about the extinction of polar bears. However, since the 1970s, polar bear numbers have increased from about 5,000 to nearly 25,000.
Don't take my word for such claims or those from college professors or zealots like Al Gore. Explore the facts and myths about climate change from independent climate scientists like Dr. Singer, and you will learn as I have that there is an agenda the left pursues to silence us who dispute their claims and take more control of everybody's daily lives.
