The Global Warming Argument

A few weeks ago I watched An Inconvenient Truth” by Albert Gore. It was interesting and eye opening, but the skeptic in me wondered if what I was seeing/hearing was really a “Truth”. It seems so, with all of the doomsday media articles and stories abound on the subject. I stumbled on a British documentary called “The Great Global Warming Swindle”. I watched it online and using the same data that Gore presents attempts to demonstrate that humans are not responsible for Global Warming by showing that CO2 does not have an affect on temperature. What?

I then start reading about this documentary and find a few sites refuting its truthfulness such as this one.

So what are we to believe? I’m still not sure, but there is one thing I’m sure of and that is this:

There should still be a debate!

It seems that the media, a questionable IPLCC, and Albert Gore have already declared it to be a self evident truth: that humans are speeding up global warming by generating more CO2. Why can’t we continue the argument? Oh that’s right, we might be dead tomorrow due to this impending doom.

One word: Jeez.
