Biggest Con In History
Ian Plimer says human induced global warming is the biggest con trick in history.
Imagine how wonderful the world would be if man-made global warming were just a figment of Al Gore's imagination. No more ugly wind farms to darken our sunlit uplands. No more whopping electricity bills, artificially inflated by EU-imposed carbon taxes. No longer any need to treat each warm, sunny day as though it were some terrible harbinger of ecological doom. And definitely no need for the $7.4 trillion cap and trade (carbon-trading) bill -- the largest tax in American history -- which President Obama and his cohorts are so assiduously trying to impose on the US economy.So true. But it was never ever about global warming as far as those in government pushing the bill are concerned. It is about raising taxes. Massive taxes. And trying to sell that tax raise as a "do gooder" project.
It seems more like a no gooder doo doo project to me designed to destroy the American economy
Here is a chart of two different temperature series (UAH in black, RSS in red) done by Steve McIntyre and posted at Watts Up With That.
Any one see a global warming signal in that chart? Me either.
And yet some people still believe global warming is real. They find my lack of faith disturbing. I find their lack of contact with reality disturbing.
