report from the u.s. senate committee on environment and public works

Ilulissat, GreenlandThe July 27-29, 2007 U.S. Senate trip to Greenland to investigate fears of a glacier meltdown revealed an Arctic land where current climatic conditions are neither alarming nor linked to a rise in man-made carbon dioxide emissions, according to many of the latest peer-reviewed scientific findings. Recent research has found that Greenland has been warming since the 1880’s, but since 1955, temperature averages at Greenland stations have been colder than the period between 1881-1955.

This is a very interesting report, and it proves conclusively that the world's scientific community is NOT UNANIMOUS in their beliefs concerning man-made global warming, and that the debate is not over. In fact, this report documents peer-reviewed research (for those of you who pay attention to that sort of thing) that shows that global warming is NOT man-made. Among the findings:

1) A 2006 study by Danish researchers from Aarhus University found that “Greenland’s glaciers have been shrinking for the past century, suggesting that the ice melt is not a recent phenomenon caused by global warming.” (LINK)

2) A 2006 study by a team of scientists led by Petr Chylek of Los Alamos National Laboratory, Space and Remote Sensing Sciences found the rate of warming in 1920-1930 was about 50% higher than that in 1995-2005, suggesting carbon dioxide ‘could not be the cause’ of warming. (LINK)

3) An October 2005 study in the journal Science found Greenland’s higher elevation interior ice sheet growing while lower elevations ice is thinning. (LINK) & (LINK to Journal Science)

4) A February 8, 2007 peer-reviewed paper published in Science found two of Greenland’s largest glaciers have “suddenly slowed, bringing the rate of melting last year down to near the previous rate,” according to the New York Times blog (2-8-07). (LINK)

5) A July 6, 2007 study published in the journal Science about Greenland by an international team of scientists found DNA “evidence that suggests the frozen shield covering the immense island survived the Earth’s last period of global warming,” according to a Boston Globe article. (6-6-07) (LINK)

6) Climatologist Dr. Patrick Michaels of University of Virginia and the Virginia State climatologist wrote the scenario promoted by former Vice President Al Gore and others showing Greenland’s ice melting and raising sea levels by 20 feet is not supported anywhere in scientific literature, not even by the United Nations. (LINK)

7) Geologist Morten Hald, an Arctic expert at of the University of Tromso in Norway has also questioned the reliability of computer models predicting a melting Arctic. (LINK)

8) Polar expert Ivan Frolov, the head of Russia’s Science and Research Institute of Arctic and Antarctic Regions, said atmospheric temperature would have to rise much higher to make continental glaciers melt. (LINK)

9) Physicist Dr. Syun-Ichi Akasofu, the former director of both University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Geophysical Institute and International Arctic Research Center who has twice been named one of the "1000 Most Cited Scientists," told a Congressional hearing in 2006 that highly publicized climate models showing a disappearing Arctic were nothing more than “science fiction.” (LINK)

There's much, much more contained in this Senate report, but that's a good summary.

Bottom line: Anyone who tells you that "the debate is over" and that "all scientists agree" and that the world as we know it is in danger of imminent destruction due to man-made global warming is lying to you. They are lying to you because they desperately want the American people to accept a Marxist solution to a non-existent crisis for the express purpose of destroying the federalist republic created by the Founding Fathers. Brother Gore's Travelin' Salvation Show and Goat Rodeo has nothing to do with "saving the world." It has everything to do with establishing one-world government under Marxist control. Don't believe the lies.
