Inconvenient Truth, Ten Years Later:

Ten years ago this week, Al Gore predicted the end of the earth.  I'm happy to report that I for one did not sell my belongings and move my family to the mountains to avoid the rising sea levels. The fact of the matter is the evidence that global warming exists is questionable at best.  The methods used by "global warming scientists" to formulate their hypotheses are slanted and evidence that is contrary to their 'conclusions" has been discarded. Furthermore even if we were convinced that global warming did indeed exist would we just automatically assume that human activity is the cause of such a phenomenon?

In 1980 Mount St. Helens dropped 540 million tons of ash which drifted 2,200 sq miles covering seven states.

In 2012 alone, 6,825,989 acres were burned from wildfires started by lightning in the U.S.

Our geological history tells us that the earth has experienced climate change for as far back as one can see. Certainly humans are not to blame for a changing climate 350 million years ago. There have been ice ages, melt downs and "meteors" that eliminated the dinosaurs long before I bought my first SUV.

I'm afraid this global warming fear mongering has always been about money and control. Renewable energy has cost the American consumer billions in higher energy costs and billions more in business growth and opportunities. 

There are close to 100,000 windmills in the U.S. and some reports say close to 20,000 are already abandoned. Coal mining states are devastated and the EPA's new guidelines will destroy what's left of the American dream. If we would ever allow some unsubstantiated global warming theory to lead us into a global cap and trade agreement the effects would be, no pun intended, chilling.


God Bless Wisconsin!
