quote: since we have such a short sighted vision we will object to the larger upfront cost and will instead spend massively more in the long run to get things setup as cheaply upfront as possible

Carleton University paleoclimatologist Professor Tim Patterson testified, "There is no meaningful correlation between CO2 levels and Earth's temperature...when CO2 levels were over ten times higher than they are now, about 450 million years ago, the planet was in the depths of the absolute coldest period in the last half billion years...
Dr. Wibjörn Karlén, emeritus professor, Dept. of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University, Sweden, [says] that the 'mass balance' of Antarctica is positive - more snow is accumulating than melting off....
[Climatology Researcher] Dr. Dick Morgan, points out that, in addition to the cooling in the NW Atlantic, massive areas of cooling are found in the North and South Pacific Ocean; the whole of the Amazon Valley; the north coast of South America and the Caribbean; the eastern Mediterranean, Black Sea, Caucasus and Red Sea; New Zealand and even the Ganges Valley in India...
Carter does not pull his punches about Gore's activism, "The man is an embarrassment to US science and its many fine practitioners, a lot of whom know (but feel unable to state publicly) that his propaganda crusade is mostly based on junk science."
quote: > "Per the story, following the historical cycles, Earth should currently be in a minor ice age, however, because of the human influence, it has been offset by global warming. So, when the environmentalists finally get their way and reduce the CO2/hothouse gasses, it triggers the ice age."
quote: Hurricane intensity may actually *decrease* (storms are driven by temperature differentials, and global warming decreases those differences).
quote: > "I was under the impression that extreme weather phenomena increase in quantity and magnitude as the overall heat energy in the atmosphere and oceans (which roughly translates into average global temperature) increases "
