Is Global Warming Caused By Mankind?

Submitted by Guest Blogger, Karl.

Listening to the so called experts such as Dave Suzuki and Al Gore, the world population is led to believe that CO2 emissions are the major cause of climate change. The result is that governments of many countries throughout the entire world are being pressured by many scientists and their counterparts to spend literally billions of dollars to clean up their act and take steps to reduce C02 and the human carbon footprint left on the planet. I have read several articles in the past few years that speak to the plight of the polar bear and their decline in numbers because of warming climate and lateness of artic ice freeze-up with the blame being placed on pollution and man made causes. The latest article spoke to a couple of what must have been brain-dead scientists actually observing the starvation of two polar bear cubs instead of being proactive and finding some way of providing some life-saving temporary food source, all because of Parks Canada legislation forbidding the feeding of wild life in a designated park area. I for one remain a skeptic as to causes of climate change primarily because of the contradictory findings within the scientific world itself. While I applaud and promote efforts to reduce C02 emissions, pollution and common sense and cost effective recycling initiatives I remain suspicious that the overall human effect on climate change itself is rather miniscule and little can be done to counter the forces of nature and the universe one way or the other.

Thanks to today’s technology we have the ability to keep record of the many reports of studies on this subject and in reviewing some of them it seems strange and questionable to me that in spite of the contradictory reports, many in the scientific world insist that climate change is manmade.

For example, in the enclosed links
one study speaks to the extinction of the woolly mammoth some 10,000 years ago and another to reduced muskox numbers some 12,000 years ago both primarily because of climate change.
The 3rd link reports the discovery in the early eighties of evidence of animal life on Devon Island in the Arctic some 70 million years ago. Just how much pollution and carbon footprint was made by the human population 10,000, 12,000 or 70 million years ago and what were the reasons for climate change at that time? Nevertheless the environmental fanatics fed one-sided information by the likes of Suzuki, Gore and many in the scientific community persist in pressuring our governments to spend billions of dollars with little or no regard to the economic consequences or the impact on the ability of the world to increase food production for the worlds growing population. I take my hat off to our present Federal Government’s position in resisting the pressure tactics of the environmental extremists in not passing C02 reduction related legislation that would require the spending of billions of our much needed dollars. As a matter of interest, I understand that if Canada were to totally eliminate all C02 emissions, meaning no coal fired power generation, no electrical or carbon fuelled automotive and agricultural equipment (basically shutting down all our oil and natural gas supplies) of any kind the impact world wide would be somewhat less than a 2% decrease. In spite of this the extremists are painting Canada as the bad guy because our governing body is not caving in to their outrageous demands. Political expediency may have dictated otherwise as evidenced by the campaign platform of at least one of the opposition parties during the last Federal election. Go figure????

Hours of Daylight

The shortest day occurred around Dec 21 & 22.
One would think that marks the time of the latest
sunrise and the earliest sun set but it doesn't!
Who can give me a logical explanation of why it doesn't?

Note how the time for solar noon changes.

Experiences with Comwave

Have you had any dealings with a communications company
called Comwave?

Steer clear from them if you haven't and get out of their clutches
immediately if you are with them.
Several months ago I received a call from a Comwave rep who
stated that if I joined their company I would be able to access
long distance calls at 1.8 cents/min with no hidden charges.
I did not say yes and I did not agree with any trial period.
However, a month later I received an invoice for long distance
calls and the rate charged was 3.9 cent/min.
I sent a payment by cheque of an amount that I considered I owed
them($8.00), had several irate conversations with a customer rep
based in India.
As a result of these calls my rate was adjusted to 1.9 c/min plus
1 c/min for the privilege of not having to use a 10 digit access
code ahead of my destination call number.
There was a dispute of $1.21 which they claimed I still owed them.

This morning we discovered that our long distance service had
been suspended until I paid the $1.21 plus 0.17 late payment charges.

Check These Opinions of Comwave

One particular comment in this list is posted below:

Can you interpret this bill?
It states that the account balance is $1.21 but later on it states that
the payment amount is $16.78

Caught up in lies

The reaction to WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange tells us all we need to know about the total corruption of our “modern” world, which in fact is a throwback to the Dark Ages. WikiLeaks II

Here's a Canadian connection:

To: tflanaga@ucalgary.ca

Hello Mr. Flanagan.

I am writing in regards to your appearance on CBC on Nov 30, 2010, in which you stated that you thought that (Julian) Assange should be assassinated. Video

Is this the way that our society should react towards those who exercise their right to free speech?

I, along with many others, consider Julian Assange to be one of very few true journalists, and a hero in the efforts of the group of Wikileaks in shining light on the workings of our present fascist governments.

I am interested in knowing why the recent outrage from many political figures, regarding the latest threat of Wikileaks to release information to the public. Could it be because Wikileaks is specifically stating that this release will threaten the safety of the banks? What might it be that the banks would want to hide?

Your appearance may entice some of us to do some CTRL-F browsing of any appearances of “Tom Flanagan” within such documents, when they become available. Do you have any suggestions on which areas one might like to focus on?

With the possibility of making Assange a martyr to those of us who seek the truth behind the seeming strategy of this government to enslave our nation and future generations in debt…..you should be careful what you wish for.

And last….a quote from Thomas Jefferson:

“If I had to choose between newspapers without a government or a government without newspapers, I should not hesitate for a moment to choose the newspapers…..at least they go out of business when they don’t tell the truth.”
