Me and a day in the life of "Global Warming".

I tried to post this video last Saturday. Al Gore must have known what my intentions were and tipped of the folks at YouTube, because the video wouldn't work once it was upload. We all know that Al Gore created the Internet, "in his dreams". Anyways, this is me being impacted by "Global Warming" last week. For the record, I didn't really feel very "warm" during my Global Warming encounter.

Science being used as a political football is something that should never happen. In reality, science has no politics. The idea and purpose of scientific exploration and observation is to find the truth.

Mixing politics in the efforts of science (left or right) can only serve to cloud the reality of the results, regardless of the negative or positive effects on the human population.

On the "Liberal Left" there is Al Gore. Gore is a politician, not a scientist. That fact in itself is enough not to use his "opinions" or his Hollywood movie as a basis in any discussion of climate change. Moreover, it's well known that he is the chairman of Generation Investment Management (GIM) a private equity firm that trades carbon credits on the Chicago Climate Exchange.

On the other end of the political football field is the "Conservative Right", who not only deny the scientific evidence, but are well funded by the petroleum producers, American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG). The AAPG is the only scientific organization to reject the basic findings of human influence on climate change.

The Conservative public policy think tank, The Heartland Institute, has cited AAPG's findings as their evidence that Global Warming is "unproven junk science." However, after the institute distributed a list of scientists who supposedly doubted climate change, many who had their names listed stated that they knew nothing of the study, and asked that their names be removed.

Both of these "political" interjections into the science have shown not to produce any consensus in the science. What both sides needs to do is contribute their efforts AND MONEY to the scientific community and allow those SCIENTISTS who are most qualified, to study and debate the climate change issue.
