In a recent Associate Press article by Seth Borenstein, these comments were made about Global Warming: "The 10 hottest years on record have occurred since Clinton's second inauguration. Global warming is accelerating. Time is close to running out, and Obama knows it."
Oh, really? Someone ought to direct Mr. Borenstein to this world temperature chart provided by NASA (You can click on it to get a larger view):
Other than a large spike in 1998, there hasn't been any real upward trend in the overall world temperatures in 14 years (See Full Story). This panic being expressed by the Global Warmists is just not real. In fact, since a small spike in 2007, the world temperatures have actually seen a significant fall.
I guess if you tell a lie often enough the world will start believing it. With Mr. Obama taking office, I see a totally unwarranted movement towards a problem that might just be political hype and one that lacks a factual basis. Trillions will be spent with jobs being lost, as in the coal and in the petroleum industry; just to satisfy the environmentalist mindset. We all will be paying more money for our energy needs in the future. What's worse, we will start seeing higher energy costs in the midst of worldwide recession.
