Skip to comments.Defeating Global Warming - the Essential thread
Posted on 12/19/2004 8:20:27 PM PST by DaveLoneRanger
The following is the result of a biology class in human ecology that I took this past semester (Fall 2004) as a freshman in college. The assignment was to gather ten articles and write some commentaries about them, challenging the ideas, presenting alternative ideas, or offering original thoughts. It was entirely my idea to make the journal focus primarily on global warming, particularly as a result of the bio teacher, and how greenie were killing the earth type stuff she was believing in. (She wasnt necessarily a sniveling liberal, or a fringe kook, I believe she sincerely believed what she taught, but the poor lady needed some antidepressants)
Like I said, the goal was to have ten articles. I began delving into the assignment, and the end result was approximately thirty-six articles, most of them relating to global warming. Some were not, and some were pro-global warming sites that I offered mild, amateur criticism of which probably isnt good enough to use.
I mentioned this project to a few Freepers who were interested in it, so I took the time to put this together into a Freep-worthy format. The idea is for it to be the ultimate arsenal of anti-global warming/environmentalist wackos/greenie kooks who think were raping mother earth because we drive a Suburban. Please feel free to add to this, and hopefully both now and long after my childrens children are dead, people will look for global warming research (or perhaps global cooling will be the thing by then) and Freepers will give them this page and tell them that all they ever need was compiled by wise old Dave, who went on to be a Senator, Lawyer, and successful talk radio host before he died.
Note: Many of these articles were researched and printed out from campus computers, and so the only link I can find is the URL listed at the bottom of the page, which may or may not be complete. Most of them are, some of them are not, and some of them appear to be complete, but could be missing some end letters. If the link does not work for you, the information I give on the page should be enough to locate the article through Google or Yahoo.

Global Warming Bombshell http://www.technologyreview.com/articles/04/10/wo_muller101504.asp?p=0 (The above article appeared already on Free Republic, and Im copying the date from the page I printed it out on, so the URL might perhaps be incomplete)
Ice Shelf breakup challenges researchers http://www.usatoday.com/weather/resources/coldscience/2004-05-26-peninsula-conf_x.htm
(This article was somewhat pro-global warming, so I offer my commentary for balance:
The Global climate change theory states that the world is slowly warming up. The result of warming up would be growing warmth in the oceans. This would cause more evaporation, causing more precipitation, even in arctic areas. If the ice shelf is growing thin enough to break up, does this not mean that it is not receiving enough continuous precipitation to build itself up slowly as it has been for decades and centuries? Could not the affect of warmer water be cancelled out by precipitation?
The article indicates that the ice shelf break-off and renewal process has been going on for at least a hundred years.
Im glad this article brings up the subject of how far back the temperature measurements (an indicator of whether or not global climate change could in fact be an extremely long-term warming/cooling trend) go. And it doesnt hold too well, regardless of how warm it was in December 2001.
The article states that computer models do not find a pattern of warming in the Antarctic Peninsula. But computer models are obviously not the most reliable in the world, in light of the J-curve evidence being disproved.)

Glaciers Shrink, But Some Resist Global Warming http://www.planetark.com/avantgo/dailynewsstory.cfm?newsid=26729 I remembered Rush talking about this article, absurdly presenting global warming as fact by attesting to the fact that some glaciers were NOT melting, and happily dug it up for my teacher.

Kyoto Crashing Wall Street Journal editorial 10/28/03 - link on page is incomplete because its so long, but articles like that are generally removed from archives after a while. Its possible that someone has already posted this on Freep, and youre welcome to check, or search for it on the web. (Since I found it in November of this year, perhaps its still available: google the words Kyoto Crashing)

There is more to come later, and forgive me for not having time to format the HTML - links should automatically show up.
Also check out junkscience.com, there's a lot to counteract liberal panic spin there.
It is 16 deg F. outside in Nashville. If someone has any global warming to spare, send it this way please.

Have you tried local warming by internal combustion? 80-86 proof, repeat as needed.
It's 40 here in Moscow Idaho but we're keeping it.
Best I can do is a pic unless you want to fly out here.
It was 3 degrees here in the northeast section of the People's Democratic Republic of Illinois.
I didn't leave the house all day.
I grilled steaks tonight at -4 with a 30 MPH wind. You guys are probably in shirt sleeves....
Fargo, doncha know...
Ahm witcha, buddy ahm witcha.
At about 15 degress F, Western CT
THE COMING ICE AGE was required reading. A friend of mine read it and said the glaciers were headed our way and we would all freeze to death in a few years.
4 degrees F, here in Columbus, OH, at midnight, Dec. 20, 2004.
I'm wondering how your professor reacted to your work?
I live in northern Minnesota.. It is 0 deg F right now.. I am all in favor of global warming.. Bring it on..
Yah, you betcha...dese here Southerners don't know from cold, do dey?
INTREP - Education - Survive
There is no help for the Evangelical Environmentalists.
It is a balmy -1 deg F, here is S.E. MI. Just about the same every year either it rains or snows up here, very little sunshine! :(
This B/S seems to adapt to the whims of these "educators".
Seems like every 10 years, or so it's warming, then for the next 10 it's cooling.
They had me going for a while, then I matured and I simply dress for the weather. ;)
