Global Warming

[This is also known as: Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW), Climate Change, Climate Disruption, etc.]

The situation with Global Warming is very closely tied to Energy policies. For example, one of the main claims for wind energy is that it will make a consequential contribution to reducing CO2 (i.e. reduce the impact of Global Warming). Unfortunately (as with almost all wind energy claims) there is no scientific proof for this assertion.

Even more to the point is the fact that our energy and environmental policies are NOT based on real Science at all, but are actually mostly written by special interest lobbyists. (This revelation will come as a surprise to most people.) Read through the material below and you’ll get a better understanding of why the Science is problematic in both situations.

Three Special Global Warming Reports:

—> 1: The Defense of CO2 <— The $64 Trillion question: is CO2 a villain? We have two versions of this important Report in defense of CO2: 1) a shorter, simpler outline of the case, and 2) a more robust defense which includes 250+ scientific citations!

—> 2: The Four Pillars Supporting Climate Change Claims <— This report objectively analyzes the legitimacy of the four most common reasons given by legislators, scientists, environmentalists, journalists or citizens as to why they believe that catastrophic Global Warming in imminent.

—> 3: Taking the Wind out of Climate Change <— Since industrial wind energy is advanced as an essential solution to Global Warming, this report analyzes its actual impact. One conclusion is that Gas can save more CO2 that Wind! Another is that Wind can make global warming worse!

Global Warming: The Scientific View is an earlier summary about the AGW matter. (Apologies that I’ve been too busy to update this for awhile. That said, the basics still apply.)
