Years ago when I first heard about global warming my first reaction was: Okay. Good. Maybe this will get the attention of the people and they will stop polluting the air and the water with chemicals from industrial waste. Then I heard claims that the oceans were raising and the ice caps were melting and I thought wow, I live right by the ocean and I cannot detect even the slightest change. Pretty soon every time something happened it was because of global warming, even when it was unusually cold. I thought something is weird here so I began to take note of the preposterous claims and began to be more skeptical. I started doing a little checking to see if there were people who did not agree with the main stream press and I found that indeed there were many people who were not convinced.

This article, written by Patrick J. Michaels discusses some significant arguments against the “settled science” proponents of global warming. He also wrote a book which documents some very serious challenges to the theory, called
Meltdown: The Predictable Distortion of Global Warming by Scientists, Politicians, and the Media. This book is very heavy reading. It is filled with foot notes documenting all the science sources discussed. I have had a little education in the sciences but not enough to be able to understand the book fully but I read it 3 times and began to understand and agree with his point of view. After reading the book I continued to read things on the internet and I am now convinced that global warming hype is being used to reach a political agenda which if allowed to proceed unchallenged will do great harm to the United States economy and to our personal prosperity. I think it is important that each individual should take the time to become informed on this issue so they can vote intelligently and otherwise use their informed judgment to counter the momentum of this destructive movement.
