John Stossel Unmasks Global Warming Hoax

In case you missed John Stossel's segment on the global warming hoax Friday:

Highlights include Stossel reminding us that rising CO2 levels are not a cause but an effect of higher temperatures; that warmer weather is not necessarily bad; that the "scientific consensus" that people cause climate change does not exist except in the minds of moonbats; that the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which shares the bogus Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore, is packed with political hacks who don't know any more than Gore does about science; and that real scientists on the committee are enraged that their names have been attached against their will to the IPCC's global warming lies.

Hat tips: NewsBusters, Stop the ACLU, on a tip from General Jack D. Ripper.

The video's worthy, but the language isn't nearly strong enough. Gore, a lousy student and lousier politician used this global warming vehicle to resurrect himself and redeem his fat ego... period. And the radicals and weak-minded governments who have forced this down the world's throat should be stripped of all their supposed authority. At the end of the day, I pray most people will see the truth behind this massive lie and run it out of town.

Gore and his Global Warming hipsters need to be called to account for their deliberate lies and half truths. They will settle for nothing less than one world under the hammer and sickle and America resembles modern day Cuba.

I was disappointed that Stossel's piece wasn't more complete. I am pleased that a mainstream prime time program has finally had the balls to challenge the rest of the MSM on the lies and propaganda, but I hope that one of these well watched programs would come out and make the case that this AGW hoax is global governance in disguise and how very dangerous to to our way of life.

The part that really had me seething was when Gore suggested it was big money driving the dissent. I actually heard the space-time continuum ripping, as millions upon millions of antonymous analogies competed for the attention of my prefrontal cortex, in a giant swirling vortex of lies.

What really pisses me off about this is the damage these zealots are dong to our children. Even if it were true why are we making neurotics out of babes? Listen to these kids on this video. They're being terrified by these fools. That's just pure evil whatever their real convictions are on the matter.

>>.....rising CO2 levels are not a cause...

Oh they already discovered that fact. Now they are turning their attention to (cue scary voice) WATER VAPOR!
Yes, that EEEVIL dihydro-oxide (H2O). Why I hear that the EEEVIL military uses TONS of the stuff every day, so it MUST be bad! In fact, the US Navy may use more of it than any other organization on Earth!

The worst part is, some kids are truly terrified. That one in the beginning sounded like she was about to burst into tears! Thanks for scaring the crap out of our kids, Al!

Stossel is great; I like a lot of what he does.

It's Marxism by the stick instead of the carrot; no longer the promise of utopia if accepted, but now the threat of apocalyptic doom if refused.

...the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which shares the bogus Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore, is packed with political hacks who don't know any more than Gore does about science...

And then there's the Nobel Committee that awarded Al Gore a Peace Prize. They are:

Well, Stossel did what he could in the colossal 8 minutes that ABC allowed for a counterpoint.

The problem is, there have been countless hours devoted on all the networks to promoting this scam. Therefore this little segment amounts to pissing into a firestorm.

If the networks ever felt the need to present a more balanced view on this issue (highly unlikely) they could air two documentaries that have appeared on Canadian and British TV:

The Great Global Warming Swindle


Doomsday Called Off

An excellent book on the subject is the "Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming".

To Kevin.....great work on looking up the committe that awarded the NPP to that blowhard Gore. I see that they balance off their cabal of hardcore lefties with one conservative.....LOL!!!

Let's see, a "European Conservative". So that means he's only slightly to the left of Dennis Kucinich?

(To you true Euro Conservatives: don't take offense! I'm just having a little fun with you!)
