Give Me a Break!

The accompanying video was broadcast on October 19, 2007.

What I find particularly troubling in this presentation is the children and their perceptions and fears of what “global warming” will bring.

“Global warming” is being taught as proven and accepted science now in our schools. Even worse, too often students are being taught that “the science is in” and “the debate is over.” That’s just bad teaching and bad science.

Science is not about debate. Science is being skeptical even of what’s been proven before. Science is investigation.

When politicians, the media, and even scientists say “the debate is over” and “the science is in,” it’s time to question their conclusions.

Give me a break!

With each post, I link to videos, news, and/or other material associated with climate change. I have

  • read each news article and viewed each video in their entirety before linking here
  • reviewed each paper or other document and each website as best as I can within my abilities before sharing it.


  • The Climate Sceptics – The world’s first up-front political party representing climate sceptics. Australian and New Zealand Scientists against AGW alarmism.

    I've always questioned this in my mind myself. The climate has changed before mankind even existed (if we are to believe any science at all that has come before us), so why do we need to believe that we are the cause of it now? Also, it irritates me to no end when theories are taught as "fact" to innocent schoolchildren. Why can't they just remain being taught for what they are – theories and just that. Where is the shame in letting children know that we don't know everything and that we are still learning? Ugh. I could go on and on. 😉

    I was just looking for a Duckboy picture called Montanans for Global Warming. I had no luck finding the picture (of Montanans bundled up against the cold holding their banner) but I did find this link that might give you a chuckle:

    Apparently Montana is presently experiencing a warming trend:… Also, the Audubon Society has been talking about the range of some birds moving northward, for what that's worth.

    teeni – I've not always questioned it, but I've been somewhat skeptical for quite a while.

    Jean – I'm seeing almost all of these news reports. I don't read them all, but I do read quite a few almost every day. I've got feeds from Google that send me links for stories on "climate change" and "sunspots AND solar."

    We get the Davidu Suzukis in Canada telling us the matter is settled. (Um…excuse me..what the hell does HE know?) His phD was in fruit-fly genetics! But he's become our Al-Gore equivalent…our Global Warming Prophet.

    What pisses me off is how the media's already made up their mind, and people who disagree with the popular Global Warming theories are being harassed and ridiculed.

    For example, consider the term that's been used:

    "Global Warming Denier".

    The language has the same flavor to it as a "Holocaust Denier", which is just insulting to everyone.

    How objective is THAT?
