    Sean–the dinosaurs thought the Ice Age would blow over–CO2 in exorbitant quantities is the consideration you want to make–taxes will be your least concern–when the sky is on fire

    Man made global warming theory:
    This theory is interesting. It is proposed by private companies such as “National Environmental Trust”. Yes these organizations might have tax-exempt status, but they are private. They might have ‘governmental’ names, but they are still privately founded and owned. The UN is another private company. These private companies or Non Governmental Organizations (NGO) are owned and funded by the old monarchies and large banking interests, basically the ultra freaky rich. They are not democratic and are not a part of any government.
    Why would the richest most powerful private citizens want the rest of us to believe in this theory? I can think of two reasons. One; it might be a valid theory backed by the scientific community and the scientific method backed by experimentation. Two; it is a way to tax humanity.
    Taking the first option and looking most fairly at this theory I went and tried to find the scientific backing for it. Now it is important to note that scientific backing is not the same as the word of ‘experts’ coming out of these private companies, but rather hard science carried out by the greater scientific community. I have a boss and work for a company, and believe me when I say that any publication I put out better be in line with the agenda of my company. Thinking about this I rather discount the word of the ‘experts’ coming out of political bodies and private companies such as the UN.
    I was amazed to find the greater scientific (unaffiliated) community was all in agreement. They all agree the theory that man has caused the very real global warming is not valid. What they all observe, in accordance with the scientific method, is that all the planets are warming right now at the exact same rate! That is correct, all planets in our solar system are warming up right now. The sun it seems is responsible for the warmth we experience here on earth.
    Well what about carbon dioxide? The man made global warming theory says it is a dangerous pollutant. Is that claim backed by science? Again, no. Carbon dioxide as the name suggests is carbon and oxygen. These are the two building blocks of life on Earth. Remembering back to my grade school science I remember that plants put out oxygen, and that animals then breath the oxygen and put out carbon dioxide. The cycle is the fundamental exchange of all life on the planet.
    So why call it a pollutant? Thinking of the second reason why the worlds taxing bodies would propose this theory it all becomes clear. Carbon credits. Remember when the queen came to the US not too long ago? She volunteered to pay her carbon credits (tax) for her trip. The agenda is to tax everyone for everything they do – drive a car, breathe, use power, etc…
    Another side effect of concentrating our resources on carbon dioxide is it diverts our resources from actual pollutants and environmental issues. Our environment is in trouble and desperately needs our attention, and I fear all the resources that could address this issue will be diverted to this tax agenda.

    * President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus said, when discussing the recent ruling by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that global warming is man-made, “Global warming is a false myth and every serious person and scientist says so. It is not fair to refer to the U.N. panel. IPCC is not a scientific institution: it’s a political body, a sort of non-government organization of green flavor. It’s neither a forum of neutral scientists nor a balanced group of scientists. These people are politicized scientists who arrive there with a one-sided opinion and a one-sided assignment.”
    * Timothy Ball, one of the first Canadian doctors in climatology, recently wrote an article addressing the issue of why no one seems to be listening to scientists who claim that global warming is NOT man-made. He starts by writing,”Believe it or not, Global Warming is not due to human contribution of Carbon Dioxide (CO2). This in fact is the greatest deception in the history of science”
    * A NASA funded study in 2003 found that, “Changes in the solar cycle — and solar output — are known to cause short-term climate change on Earth.”

    You and Angela definitely know your stuff! I’m going to use this for a report for high school. Will the archive be up soon?

    Thanks Mark for an amazing interview. Your guest was terrific. I started to call in but you covered everything I wanted to ask, and then some.
