Tell your brother to link to the History Channel's "Little Ice Age" ... a great show...on the last time the earth cooled a couple degrees.So, basically, nothing people do matters - temps drop, temps go up - thats what non-political scientists have been saying forever.
Fuck the liberal dickcheese bastards - scaremongering and telling everyone that the government has to step in, confiscate and redistribute their wealth because Al Gore says so...thats pretty much the left's solution to everything...Here's the intro...Not so long ago, civilization learned that it was no match for just a few degrees drop in temperature. Scientists call it the Little Ice Age--but its impact was anything but small. From 1300 to 1850, a period of cataclysmic cold caused havoc. It froze Viking colonists in Greenland, accelerated the Black Death in Europe, decimated the Spanish Armada, and helped trigger the French Revolution. The Little Ice Age reshaped the world in ways that now seem the stuff of fantasy--New York Harbor froze and people walked from Manhattan to Staten Island, Eskimos sailed kayaks as far south as Scotland, and two feet of snow fell on New England in June and July during "the Year Without a Summer". Could another catastrophic cold snap strike in the 21st century? Leading climatologists offer the latest theories, and scholars and historians recreate the history that could be a glimpse of things to come. Face the cold, hard truth of the past--an era that may be a window to our future.-----Original Message-----the email below was written by my brother in response to a lambasting he received from yet another blathering idiot on the Left who blindly worships @ Al Gore's Church of Global Warming. We need more thoughtful & intelligent people like Chris Z to battle the forces on the Left who spew the garbage they spew....

Never have taken a dime ofanyone else's money for this, never will, and despite your blindcondemnation I care very, very, very much about the future. It just sohappens, though, that I'm more worried about the damage that[predominantly Western] societal self-loathing can do when it starts toblame itself for problems it couldn't have foreseen and/or have nothingto do with human activity.Explain to me why I'm getting a 5% click-through-rate on my ads on thetopic of 'Inconvenient Truth' and global warming? 2.2% is industryaverage. Is it because everyone is shocked that I'm saying what I'msaying and has morbid curiosity, or is it because I'm facilitatingexploration for the huge, latent question mark in society's head aroundwhat we're all being told by the media is the fait accompli ofanthropogenic global warming? Whether you choose to agree with me ornot, it is the latter.If you disagree with me, put your own hard-earned money where your mouthis and run your own paid search campaigns espousing your own viewpoints.If everyone did that we'd have a much richer discussion and one thatdoesn't result in Inquisition-like effigy burning of those who dare toquestion the notion that humans caused global warming.And what's more, your reaction to my campaign is far more frightening tome and my children's possible future than global warming ever would be.Our society is bifurcating right now and there is less and lesswillingness to listen to other viewpoints and debate rationally.*That's* our biggest issue, half-educated people being raised to thinkwhat their teachers teach them in university is God's truth and never tobe questioned. Don't think for a second that I would be doing what I'mdoing if I thought global warming was caused by humans and could bemitigated by humans. But for me, my decision is to recognize theoverwhelming inconclusiveness of the data, the overwhelming certaintythat there's nothing we *could* do anyways, and keep people from gettingso wound up about global warming that they become unwitting accomplicesin the dismantling of our free market, capitalist system which has ledus out of global war and misery and into the best period in the historyof mankind.My realization is that a free market is the best way to deal with globalwarming. Since the utterly flawed Kyoto accords, guess which country'sCO2 emissions growth has slowed the most? France? No. Germany? No. UK?No.U.S.? You got it, and guess why? Rising energy costs are leadingindustry to become more efficient, rising energy company profits areallowing for investment into more efficient energy production, and aneconomy free to morph where the action is is abandoning manufacturingand moving into CO2 emission-free industries like software, internet andservices.I'll listen to what you and others have to say about global warming, andI hope for all of our sake that people like you will question their ownthought process just enough to keep America what it is - a society offree thinkers.Chris Zaharias-----Original Message-----From: [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of Eric van derVlugtSent: Tuesday, June 13, 2006 2:56 PMTo: info [eFrontier List]Subject: [Info] Chris ZahariasJudging from his "convenient" rant, obviously no children, not married,doesn't much care about truth, anyone, anything (other than taking moneyfrom lobbyists I suppose)?
