For an excellent presentation of the scientific facts and the economic realities of the Global Warming debate, please read Monckton’s Showdown. The Global Warming claims are not based on science, and we couldn’t afford to stop Global Warming even if we needed to.
The left is very dishonest when dealing with the issue and our college campuses are littered with green professors bent on force feeding their students this deceitful pablum.
I asked Lord Monckton what he had thought of the strange conduct of the professor, particularly when he had abused his authority by asking his students to assent to the correctness of a statistical technique that he and they had known to be plainly false. Lord Monckton’s reply was moving.
Gently, and sadly, he said, “We shall lose the West unless we can restore the use of reason to pre-eminence in our institutions of what was once learning. It was the age of reason that built the West and made it prosperous and free. The age of reason gave you your great Constitution of liberty. It is the power of reason, the second of the three great powers of the soul in Christian theology, that marks our species out from the rest of the visible creation, and makes us closest to the image and likeness of our Creator. I cannot stand by and let the forces of darkness drive us unprotesting into a new Dark Age.”
And, please, pass it along.
