"Global Warming" is truly a misnomer. It should be called "Global Fleecing" because that's precisely what it is.
Global warming is a trend no doubt, a simple natural cycle of nature. But Anthropogenic Global Warming (aka the Al Gore hypothesis) is discredited science at best, intentional fraud at worst, and is being soundly refuted. See:
U.S. Senate Report:
Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007
Senate Report Debunks "Consensus"
Report Released on December 20, 2007
U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee
"Over 400 prominent scientists from more than two dozen countries recently voiced significant objections to major aspects of the so-called "consensus" on man-made global warming. These scientists, many of whom are current and former participants in the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), criticized the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore."
2007 was the watershed year in which scientists, even those from the IPCC committees, completely discredited the IPCC review process, exposed its purely political motivations and machinations, and drove the final nails into the coffin of the Gore / Hansen AGW climate change monster.
There are many other more immediate issues facing the world than "Global Warming." Try depletion of pelagic fisheries, water reclamation, ensuring adequate future food and energy supplies, or curtailing whale hunting. But these issues don't make headlines and don't allow politicians to mandate the massive global redistribution of wealth possible with AGW. Think about it. When was the last time a blockbuster movie was made about the collapse of the wild Slimehead (aka the Orange Roughy) fishery?
Climate change fearmongering is now being driven by BIG Business which forsees a huge market in peddling "Green" wares to populations preconditioned to respond to the various "global warming" and climate doomsday hysterias ( http://tinyurl.com/2zkzt8 ). Typically, these are the unscientific masses who don't understand the science, who don't subscribe to Nature or AAAS Science, and who take everything they see and hear on TV as the gospel truth. GW and Climate Change are all about PROFITS, not saving the World from a fate which will not occur anyway.
As for motive: Not only does Al Gore have an ego the size of Air Force One which needs to stay in the limelight since it's not in the Oval Office, but Al and his cronies stand to profit immensely from his climate change monster. Once he has government mandates, then the cash will really begin to flow - directly into his bank account from yours. That's why he is now rolling out his PSAs in order to influence you to influence Congress and why he was asked to join one of the largest venture capital firms in the nation out on Sand Hill working on - wait for it - carbon credit trading.
Folks, AGW is pure POLITICAL science, NOT hard science. Don't fall for the hysteria.
