Global Warming Swindle?

Don't get me wrong: I'm not saying that efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle are a bad idea. (Just check out the growing number of recycling containers in our living room.) Any efforts to beautify and improve our environment ought to be welcomed.

But after viewing a documentary (The Great Global Warming Swindle) and reading Lorne Gunter's piece in today's National Post, I'm a little more skeptical about the ideology and political motivations behind global warming. I'm not prepared to call it a "conspiracy" quite yet, but the global warming skeptics really are starting to get their act together. The anti-consumerism, big-government tenets of the global warming movement do smack of 1960s and 1970s socialism. Food for thought, and (quite possibly) more convenient truths.

Come on, believe what you read and what "most" scientists say, after all, today is the 32nd anniversary of Newsweeks "Global Cooling" in-depth report on the eminent impending global cooling danger. The report, verified by leading scientist's of course, claimed that global cooling was upon us and, crop destruction and world hunger were only a matter of years away. Its like my young daughter said to me, " why do people think that the environment should stay the same just to convienance us, when, its never done it before". Anyone??
