Al Gore seems to have paved the way for all the “global warming” nuts. In his film An Inconvenient Truth, he supposedly explains all the terrible and horrible effects of “man-made” global warming. Sadly, it’s full of exaggeration and non-factual things. Even Gore admits this, but basically says that the idea of it is true. How can we believe something that is full of false facts and exaggerations? Gore, himself, doesn’t abide by the standards of “green” living that he has set forth for the rest of civilization, but that doesn’t stop the left. They are constantly nagging us about how we live, and being carbon friendly. They even have a new thing, championed by Gore himself, about how if you use a ton of energy, you can purchase carbon offsets. What a crock!
Let’s remind everyone, these are the same people that 30 years ago were worried about another Ice Age! Global cooling was the chief worry of the time. What people don’t realize is that the earth NATURALLY goes through periods of heating and cooling, all by itself. As human beings, we grossly overestimate our impact on the planet. We’re cooler now than when the dinosaurs were roaming the earth. There were no SUV’s then, or regular light bulbs, or other things the left claims to be destroying our planet.
One might find it interesting to look at the different environmental “scares” over the last hundred or so years.
Also, in contrast to Al Gore’s movie, here’s one the BBC (of all groups) produced.
People need to remember that because some scientists have reached a “consensus” that global warming is man-made, there are just as many scientists that believe quite the opposite. Science isn’t about consensus, it’s about fact. The fact is that man-made global warming cannot be proven. I haven’t even seen anyone try to test the theory.
Also, I have a HUGE problem with schools forcing students, and in some cases parents, to watch Gore’s movie. Schools seem bent on teaching and preaching this man-made global warming stuff, but don’t seems to want to present any opposing view. This is simply wrong. I’ll tell you this, if my children are ever forced into this kind of garbage, and fed false information masqueraded as fact, I will throw the biggest fit that school or teacher has ever seen. I refuse to let my children be a party to that. If it’s going to be taught in school, BOTH sides should be presented.
So, before you go getting all worried about being the cause of the planet’s destruction, get all the facts.

In response to a comment left on my last entry about the Edwards’, I wanted to say that there was a marked difference in the way the left and right handled the news of Elizabeth Edwards and Tony Snow. When Tony Snow announced he has cancer, I don’t even know if it made the 6 o’clock news. In contrast, with the Edwards announcement, it was all over tons of media, including the conservative talk radio shows. Rush spoke well-wishes for them, so did Hannity. No one on the left seems to have the least bit of compassion for Tony Snow, though. Pretty sad if you ask me.

Now, as I have neglected my blog for several days, I’d like express my sympathy for Tony Snow and his family. Going through cancer is brutal, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. My heart goes out to him and his family. I wish him strength and courage in facing this. I also wish his family all the best.
