The World As I See It

Where are we heading?

Posted by SteveB on May 6, 2009

It amazes me how people become entrenched in their beliefs; such is the case with the global warming/climate change issue.  I will not deny that I have become entrenched in my own belief as well. I do not believe that man is the cause of the global warming that the planet has been experiencing the last 20-30 years. There are others that are equally entrenched in their belif of the opposite. In my view, there is no way you are going to convince some people that your belief is correct and their’s is wrong.  There are very smart people, much smarter than me, on both sides of the issue. How is the average layperson supposed to make an informed decision about something of such great importance?

It is not just the fact that there is real disagreement, although those that support man-made global warming will tell you the “science is settled.” It is only settled for those that “believe.”  The rest of us are forced to find a way to get our voices heard.  As many scientists will say, science is not something that is advanced by consensus.  Majority vote does not rule true science. 

All the global warming bloggers like to talk as if they are experts because they regergitate someone elses argument. It really is frustrating when people don’t view things the way you do. Especially if you are one that supports man-induced global warming. They have discussions about how to talk to “deniers” and what makes a denier tick. They must think – How in the world can these people be so dumb not to see things the way I see them.  They ignore the facts staring them right in the face.

I guess it can be said for both sides.  I cannot, for the life of me, understand how these people can so completely buy into this global warming scam.  And that is exactly what it is.  A scam.  They buy it – hook, line and sinker.

Unfortunately this is not a debate we can agree to disagree on.  There are serious ramifications for this Country if we go down the road that some would like us to.  It will cost all of us greatly economically.

Only time will tell who is right and who is wrong.  Lets hope it is not too late.

    The Utter Hypocrasy Of Al Gore

    For anyone who cares to do the most minimal of research themselves, it would be clear that in the last 10 years at least, when China has been building the equivalent of one coal fired power station a week, that the planet has actually been cooling. What is it with the media, an industry which is supposed to seek out and report the facts, seems incapable of doing so? It takes a small amount of basic investigation to show that this whole manmade global warming story is just that, a story. It’s put out by very powerful people, including Al Gore himself, to serve the vested economic interests of the elite including Al Gore’s own carbon trading company Generation Investment Management.

    Let’s be clear about one thing and that’s the hypocrisy of Al Gore. This is a man with considerable holdings, not only in the company mentioned above but also in Occidental Oil. This company is responsible for the destruction of the ancestral home of the Kitanemuk Indians in the Elk Hills of Central California. At the time environmentalists filed a lawsuit against his company under the Endangered Species Act to no avail as drilling went ahead.

    Another indigenous population, the U’wa of North-eastern Columbia were removed from their ancestral homes. The 5000 strong community even threatened mass suicide if Occidental started drilling but this was also ignored by Occidental Oil, again ignoring the concerns of environmentalists.

    These are just a couple of examples of the utter hypocrisy of Al Gore. There are many more. This is the man we are supposed to trust to be giving us the facts behind manmade global warming despite his film ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ being pulled apart and shown to contain numerous incorrect assumptions and blatant falsehoods.

    So, we need more electricity. Well how about exploring the technology of Nikola Tesla for a start? This was the man who invented the first ever hydro electric power station at Niagara Falls, still in use today. This genius was a compulsive inventor of electrical machines, the technologies of which are still used 65 years after his death. It has been reported many times that at least half of his inventions have been suppressed by powerful corporations, particularly the energy industry. The reason for this is that Tesla seemingly proved that electricity could be provided free to everyone on the planet. He also proved that cables were unnecessary for transporting it. He is also said to have invented the magnetic generator which used no fuel whatsoever and worked using magnets to rotate a turbine which produced the required electricity. This could be built to any scale for any intended generation needs and indeed would be possible for every single house on the planet to have their own. This would cut the need for power generating plants and completely nullify energy production pollution emissions of any kind. It could also be used to run any type of motorised vehicles. Yes, planes, trains and automobiles!

    This of course would not be in the interests of the corporations who own our energy companies, car makers etc.

    It’s about time reporters/journalists started to investigate the real world instead of listening to spin doctors and vested interests who will simply tell you what they want you to report. In essence you need to start taking some pride in your profession and seek out the truth!

    The truth shall set us all free.
