The Unreported But Continuing Debate On Global Warming

According to the American Thinker, the International Conference On Climate Change met in Washington, D. C., this week.  The article at American Thinker is very complex and very scientific, so I really can't do it justice here.  I will try to highlight a few points, but I strongly suggest you click on the link and read the entire article for yourself.  Here is my feeble attempt to summarize.   MIT's Richard Lindzen was one of the speakers.

"Lindzen explained why the process behind the U.N's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) claim of man's responsibility for the warming since 1954 is "an embarrassment." First they created a number of models which could not "reasonably simulate known patterns of natural behavior (such as El Niño (ENSO), the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO)), claiming that such models nonetheless accurately depicted natural internal climate variability."  Then, when those models failed to replicate the warming episode from the mid seventies through the mid nineties, they proclaimed it proof that "forcing was necessary and that the forcing must have been due to man."  And they relied upon those same "existing poorly performing models" which are fraught with "errors in the feedback factors" to make their argument that "sensitivity to a doubling of CO2 could be anything from 1.5 to 5°C based on the claimed range of results from different models.""

The article further explains:

"When Solar expert Willie Soon took the stage, he insisted that CO2 is not an "air pollutant," but rather food for plants and marine life.  And that its atmospheric levels are controlled by temperature and other biological/chemical variables -- not the other way around (quipped the astrophysicist: Lung Cancer does not cause smoking). But most of all, a magical CO2 knob for controlling weather and climate simply does not exist." 
Further information:
"Anthony Watts, editor of the fabulous WUWT (WattsUpWithThat), reported the latest data in his ongoing evaluation of highly-critical upstream temperature data collection - and the results are nothing less than startling. His team found more than half of the 1,221 stations audited to be inaccurate by at least 2°C. These discrepancies were attributed to various data corrupting violations, including stations located on dark albedo gravel or directly in proximity to hot AC exhaust (both of which bias readings to the upside)." 
Obviously there is a whole lot more information in the article, but the bottom line is that the discussion on global warming is not really about saving the environment--it's about money and power.  Congress is working on a Cap and Trade Bill which should be called a Cap and Tax Bill.  This legislation would increase the energy costs (heating, cooling, cooking, driving, etc.) for the average American anywhere from 50 to 100 per cent.  Again, please read the article to see what is in store for us if we do not stop this bill and demand a full debate on the concept of global warming.  Global warming is not an established fact and should not be used as an excuse for politicians to take more of our money and to exert more control over how we live our lives.
