According to Senator James Inhofe (R – OK), there is no consensus among scientists about global warming. He even goes on to list 400 people he claims are prominent climate scientists. Well guess what? Baloney. A number of the people on the list are weatherman on television, twenty percent of them are paid by the fossil fuel industry, seventy people on the list have no apparent experience in climate science and twenty of them are economists.
Don’t believe me? Here is the list of the four hundred and thirteen people who signed this deceptive piece of paper. Even if there are 400 or so scientists who deny global warming, how about the 50,000 members of the American Geophysical Union who do? It is time to stop arguing with the idiots. I no longer believe that we need to prove ourselves to those people who would consistently deny what we know to be the truth. The earth is warming and man has a lot to do with it.
Want more information before making a decision whether to believe it or not? Go to the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change and read the reports.
The deniers keep telling us that fighting global warming will cost jobs and hurt our economy. What utter nonsense. Imagine the jobs we can create if we mobilize our country to develop new technologies to decrease the need for fossil fuels. You know who’s economy will be hurt and whose jobs will be lost? Those executives of fossil fuel companies that rely on polluting our planet for their bloated salaries. The old boys club is hurt economically, not our nation. In truth, our economy will be hurt staying the course, innovation is the way our country became great, stagnation, which is what the current administration wants, is what will put us in the same category as the end of the Roman Empire.
We can only become great again by leading the world, not bleeding it. We have a chance to make a difference, let’s not screw it up.
