The Global Warming "consensus" is shattering right before our very eyes.
 
Of course it was inevitable that this would happen.  One agenda, one overzealous movement cannot control all of the science and all of the discourse forever, especially not when the facts start to lead people to the opposite conclusion.  

As Lord John Maynard Keynes, a British economist, once said, "When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?"
 
David Evans is a rocket scientist who served as a consultant to the Australian Greenhouse Office for 6 years.  When he started in 1999, he bought into all the doomsday hype, and devoted himself to the study of the issue.  

By 2007, "the evidence was pretty conclusive that carbon played only a minor role and was not the main cause of the recent global warming."

1.        The greenhouse signature is missing. We have been looking and measuring for years, and cannot find it.
2.        There is no evidence to support the idea that carbon emissions cause significant global warming. None.
3.        The satellites that measure the world's temperature all say that the warming trend ended in 2001, and that the temperature has dropped about 0.6C in the past year (to the temperature of 1980).
4.        The new ice cores show that in the past six global warmings over the past half a million years, the temperature rises occurred on average 800 years before the accompanying rise in atmospheric carbon. Which says something important about which was cause and which was effect.
Read the entire article here.  It's well worth your time, and shatters  almost every myth about global warming you've ever heard.
 
I say almost, because there are a few topic he simply doesn't have time to get into.  Like hurricanes, for example.  Fortunately, there are other scientists around to pick up the slack: 
A staple of the Al Gore (more on him later) fear mongering platform has been to convince people that more global warming equals more, stronger hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, floods, oppressive heat, frigid cold... Anything bad you can possibly think of, Al Gore would like to blame on Global Warming.  So tell me, Al Gore:  What do you have against kittens?  
Sure this is good fun, but it leads me to a more serious point.  Al Gore and his Goracles have been spending a lot of time trying to convince us that more warming will inevitably lead to disaster.  But isn't it just as likely that a warmer earth will actually be good, not only for humans, but for all life?  In earth's history, warmer climates have invariably led to lush, full flora and thriving fauna, and colder climates, well...500 years ago, the Viking colonies on Greenland died out because the climate grew too cold to grow crops there.  230 years ago, New York Harbor froze over, letting people walk from Manhattan to Staten Island.  Throughout history, cold has been worse for life, and heat has been better.  Why has this suddenly changed now?

Most Egregious Claim of the Week:
 
Who else could it go to but the man himself?  In a speech on July 17, Al Gore demanded that the United States, in the next 10 years, abandon all of the electricity generated by fossil fuels in favor of carbon-free renewable sources (wind, solar, geothermal etc.).  Gore's demands are almost impossible and would be incredibly expensive to implement, but who cares about petty things like reality when "The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk...The future of human civilization is at stake."
 
Gore's claims are becoming more and more hyperbolic as more and more Americans begin to realize just how absurd this global warming nonsense really is.  In fact, it's entirely possibly that Al Gore himself realizes how absurd these claims really are.  After all, he and his crew showed up for his speech on the environment in two Lincoln Towncars and an SUV, which were left idling with the AC cranked up for 20 minutes while he gave his speech.  His mansion in Tennessee produces a carbon footprint 20 times the size of the average American home.  In Gore's case, it really is do as he says, not as he does.
