In an article by Arthur Max, (UN Panel Gives Dire Warming Forecast) the UN Secretary-General is calling on the US and China, as the Earth's largest polluters,
... to do more to slow global climate change.Like most Politicians, the "facts" should never stand in the way of Political Correctness and Gain.
Several "facts" about Global Warming are not mentioned in this one-sided presentation. Among the unmentioned but confirmed "facts" are:
- The Earth has been both Warmer and Colder in the Past
- The cost of Carbon Dioxide reduction as per the Kyoto Accord requires extreme (read impossible) Life Style Changes
- Carbon Dioxide is not the major Greenhouse Gas
- At least 1/2 of the atmospheric Carbon Dioxide results from Natural Events (Volcanoes)
- Since the Arctic Ice Cap is floating, its melting will not significantly affect Ocean Levels
- The Antarctic Ice Cap is Growing.
- Polar Bear populations are growing or at least stable
- Al Gore will not sign has own Global Warming Pledge
- Al Gore will not debate Global Warming nor explain the "factual" errors contained in his movie "An Inconvient Truth"
