Absolute Science

A recent article in the journal Science appears to support evidence of recent global warming as a result of human activity. You can read about it further using this link:


If you believe what you read, the study of Antarctic gas bubbles reveals that Carbon Dioxide levels today are at least 27% higher than at any time in the last 650,000 years. According to the article the culprit is the burning of fossil fuels.

It just so happens that the article appears just before the opening of a major conference on global warming that starts Monday in Montreal. (Save that thought when you read the second-to-last paragraph of this entry.)

This month’s “Geographica” forum in National Geographic appears to support the “vast cycles” theory of warming and cooling in earth’s past. Plants took roughly 50 million years to develop large leaves. Why? Because 380 million years ago the earth was much warmer and had much higher levels of carbon dioxide. That gave plants with twig-like small leaves an advantage. In the late Devonian period both temperatures and carbon dioxide levels dropped. To survive, plants had to develop larger leaves according to British Botanist Colin Osborne.

The rational person can believe one and not the other or both or neither. Regardless, the everyday educated person must dig very hard to find real, unslanted science.

Right now an educated person must go to a work of fiction to understand the dynamics behind global warming rhetoric. Drop whatever you are doing and read Michael Crichton’s “State of Fear”. You will be sent on multiple adventures and on the way discover the political truth behind global warming. You will experience the feast, famine and frenzy which spin good scientists like tops. You will discover why environmental foundations file multi-million dollar lawsuits – with no hope of winning – just for show. Or just to keep the money flowing and the hysteria going. And why a study like the Antarctic gas bubbles precedes the opening of a conference.

That’s right folks. It takes a work of fiction to make sense out of the science and reality of out-of-control environmentalism. The book is neither liberal nor conservative and draws no conclusions. But you will not be informed about the subject matter unless you have read it.
