GASP!: Climate 'Going Over Edge'

From the same reliable news rag, Newsweek, that brought you the “The Cooling World” in the 1970s, we get a new fear piece that--sticking with the popular media’s ‘we-refuse-to-question’ template—continues the media’s practice of proclaiming ‘global warming’ as a foregone conclusion.

Has this writer experienced the same winter that we all have? True our record-setting winter is empirical evidence, but alarmists never fail to spout empirical evidence (i.e., hurricanes, fires, floods, etc.) when it backs up their own propaganda. They also ignore the hard data that points away from manmade global warming, and they DEFINITELY ignore scientists that state the truth: AGW resides in Malarkey City.

It has become as politically incorrect to question manmade climate change as it has to be a member of the KKK.

Here’s something I absolutely promise you. Nothing is going over the edge, except for maybe our economy, which would go further over the edge if we enact any politically driven attempt to modify the climate. But hey...remember that liberals like Bill Clinton, Prince Charles, and Obama's climate czar stated that we NEEDED to shrink our economy to fight global warming; so what do they say today? Why isn't the media asking them both this tough question: Mr. Clinton and Ms. Browner, are you satisfied now that the economy is in recession?

It has become as politically incorrect to question manmade climate change as it has to be a member of the KKK. And it’s unfortunate, because the two—climate denials and racial bigotry—can’t be equated as equally reprehensible. They’re not even close.

Get more fear by reading the GASP! series and the warmlist.

Will Climate Go Over The Edge?

There is something compelling, in a ghoulish sort of way, about the notion that earth's climate may be headed toward a tipping point. The idea gained broad currency in 2007, when a panel of scientists, including Harvard environmental expert John Holdren—now the White House science adviser—warned that the planet is approaching a threshold beyond which damage to the environment would be irreversible. As policymakers work toward a climate treaty in Copenhagen in December that will include new limits on emissions, the question in the back of everyone's mind is whether an agreement can halt the warming trend, or at least stave off the worst consequences. Or is it already too late? A definitive answer isn't forthcoming, but the signs in recent months have been gloomy.
