Global warming a scam

Temperatures in the Midwest, East and the deep South are colder than they have been in decades. The ice pack in Antarctica is growing. Can it now be seen that global warming”was a scam?

A lot of money was made by the likes of Al Gore based on global warming. None of the leftists or extremist environmentalists mention global warming any longer. The mantra now is “climate change.” Well, of course, the climate is changing. It has been changing since the Earth began. Yes, even before humans occupied the Earth.

How arrogant to think that mere humans are powerful enough to control climate change. We can no more control climate change than we can stop a tornado. The Earth is going to continue to change no matter what we do.

    You should think about not writing letters to the editor. I'd be embarrassed if I was related to you or knew you.

    Hi Matt. Just follow the money. The countries like the concept of global warming because they can tax people. Scientists love it because they can make money to study it. Liberals like it so that they can control peoples lives and make themselves rich off others. You should be embarrassed to be so gullible. Last time I looked Yosemite valley was formed by a glacier that melted away long before the introduction of fossil fuels.

    Yes the climate is cyclical, just has it's been since the beginning of the earth. The question is can mere humankind control the global atmosphere, climate and weather no matter how much carbon is taxed and income redistributed? Or has global warming just become another religion or a ploy for covert socialists whom can't sell socialism on it's own failed merits?

    Salty, I am not saying this to be mean spirited. I don't know you at all and I am sure you're a pleasant person. With that said, your lack of punctuation makes reading your comments impossible. It hurts my head to try to read them so I skip over them. Just some advice. For real, I am not trying to be mean here.

    Matt i am very sorry that my punctuation is not up to your college /phd standards, and i clearly do not have the college background that you clearly have. But the fact is the first earth day claims were for the next ice age and that did not happen so now we must be having global warming. Maybe you find my comments hard to read because you do not want to see the truth about global warming for what it is. It is nothing more then political from the liberals like your self that want to control our lives of every american and the goal of a one world government

    I'm not going to respond to your post where you lump me into a category and then make generalizations. However, to say liberals want to control everyone. I'm pretty sure it's liberals (and some conservatives) who say a woman gets to choose if she can have an abortion. It's also liberals (and again, some conservatives) who want to allow any two consenting adults (no matter the gender) to marry.

    Man has a better chance of control his fellow (and lesser) man than he has of controlling the climate. As such is the case today.

    Matt - I have a Newsweek cover from the 70's which I downloaded from the internet, in my classroom. (Yes, RLW, I am a teacher). When we begin the study of weather I take it out and cover just the heading, leaving language meant to incite fear (and sell magazines) about changes in the climate. I ask my students what the cover is about based on what they can read, and they always say global warming. Then I uncover the hidden title - Global Cooling! They're always shocked, but confused. That starts a good discussion about scientists and predicting the weather. Climate is always changing. When the little ice age started 400 years ago, have you thought about what caused it, or, for that matter, what ended it? I'd love to ask Nancy Pelosi (a major proponent of global warming nonsense) how we could be suffering from warming when it's been so cold this winter. The dumb look on her face would be priceless.

    I wish global warming were true, Teach, just to hear Nancy Pelosi exclaim, "I'm melting... I'm melting..."

    Read Michael Crichton's State of Fear. It has footnotes attributable to legitimate sources and a great depth of how hard the media is trying to scare the living bejesus out of us on a daily basis. Global warming is such a thing. Really quite interesting stuff in this book including how in the last 20 years the media has increased using 'scare' words by 200% words like catastrophe and major disaster. Also, if you look at the book you will see the world's temperature for the last 150 years in a chart where even a 2nd grader could figure out the earth works on 30 heating and cooling cycles based loosely on a 13 solar cycle.
