And Now For Your Weather Forecast...

Some "scientists" and "experts" have told us that global warming will destroy this planet if we don't act now. I've heard estimates anywhere from five years to 50 years for catastrophic destruction to occur.

Who are these people who predict such devastation brought on by human greed and ignorance? Primarily they are climatologists. Uh, weathermen.

Do you watch your local weather forecast? What percentage of the time would you say the forecast is accurate? Let's make it a little more simple. What about the next day's forecast? Pretty accurate? What about two days? What about five days? 10 days?

You see, the farther you forecast into the future, the lower the accuracy rate. So would someone PLEASE tell me how these same people can predict temperatures five, 10, 20, 50 years from now?

Look, real scientific data to support global warming just isn't there. Weather and climate are just too difficult to predict. There are too many unknowns. Too many random factors.

One thing, however, is clear. Human effect on the global climate is infinitesimal.

When I was a kid I once read in the newspaper that due to the greenhouse efect the earth's temperature was increasing and that by the year 2000 sea level would rise so high that waters would reach the main square of coastal city. This year I went to Rio the Janeiro as an adult. The beaches are still there with the girls!!! my god, the girls there are more dangerous than al gore's prediction!
