The Politics of Climate Warming
Most people will agree that Global Warming is by far the most debated issue of the 21st Century, to those who believe it to be true the issue has already been resolved and all that is needed now is for solutions to be found, solutions which believers say are being impeded in their implementation by a small band of determined climate deniers who choose to defy the laws of reason and go about seeding doubt and confusion in order to deny us the ability to solve the problem.
Climate deniers on the other hand believe that the entire issue of global warming is nothing more than a grand scheme designed to make money for scientists seeking funding grants and profits for free energy organizations wanting their milk and honey to be provided from government coffers.
The two camps are currently engaged in a battle of wits so nasty that reputations are being ruined, money is spent by the billions and more than a few lives have been lost while we all wait for science and governments to make up their minds on who is right and who is wrong.
So who do the people believe?
Click on the picture below to view some videos from the American Public Broadcasting Service which I am sure when coupled with the knowledge of recent events might very well surprise many of you.
The videos contain interviews with some of the most prominent politicians and expert scientists involved in the AGW issue as well as being an accurate documentary on the history of Global Warming.
When you finish viewing the videos you might wish to read one of the Climate Change Reports President Bush had removed from the EPA websites in order to keep the people ignorant of the true facts about global warming.
You might also wish to read this article from Vanity Fair which sums it all up very nicely.
Is there proof of Political Interference with Climate Change Science? Try reading a report from the US House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
There is also this small article by the PBS on some of the best known climate skeptics which begins with this:
“Many of the researchers expressing doubts about the science of global warming have financial ties to the oil, auto, electricity and coal industries. These experts appear regularly at Congressional hearings, on television, radio and in print, and at events in order to spread their message. That message varies somewhat from skeptic to skeptic but generally sows doubt about climate change, challenging the consensus of mainstream scientists. They ask whether global warming is really occurring, whether human activity is truly to blame and whether rising temperatures are such a bad thing. “
All in all, readers shouldn’t need much more than these links in order to find out what exactly is going on with regards this very important issue.
