Global Warming ISN'T HAPPENING

Every hippy who really "cares about the environment" and "hates a-holes who don't care about the environment" can eat this witht their next Boca warming really isn't happening:

For many years now, human-caused climate change has been viewed as a large
and urgent problem. In truth, however, the biggest part of the problem is
neither environmental nor scientific, but a self-created political fiasco.
Consider the simple fact, drawn from the official temperature records of the
Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, that for the years
1998-2005 global average temperature did not increase (there was actually a
slight decrease, though not at a rate that differs significantly from zero).

Yes, you did read that right. And also, yes, this eight-year
period of temperature stasis did coincide with society's continued power station
and SUV-inspired pumping of yet more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
response to these facts, a global warming devotee will chuckle and say "how
silly to judge climate change over such a short period". Yet in the next breath,
the same person will assure you that the 28-year-long period of warming which
occurred between 1970 and 1998 constitutes a dangerous (and man-made) warming.
Tosh. Our devotee will also pass by the curious additional facts that a period
of similar warming occurred between 1918 and 1940, well prior to the greatest
phase of world industrialisation, and that cooling occurred between 1940 and
1965, at precisely the time that human emissions were increasing at their
greatest rate.

Does something not strike you as odd here? That industrial carbon dioxide is not the primary cause of earth's recent decadal-scale temperature changes doesn't seem at all odd to many thousands of independent scientists. They have long appreciated - ever since the early 1990s, when the global warming bandwagon first started to roll behind the gravy train of the UN Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - that such short-term climate fluctuations are chiefly of natural origin. Yet the public appears to be largely convinced otherwise. How is this possible?

Since the early 1990s, the columns of many leading newspapers and magazines, worldwide, have carried an increasing stream of alarmist letters and articles on hypothetical, human-caused climate change. Each such alarmist article is larded with words such as "if", "might", "could", "probably", "perhaps", "expected", "projected" or "modelled" - and many involve such deep dreaming, or ignorance of scientific facts and principles, that they are akin to nonsense. The problem here is not that of climate change per se, but rather that of the sophisticated scientific brainwashing that has been inflicted on the public, bureaucrats and politicians alike.

Ha! Just like almost everything that hippies believe in...this has been ultimately proven to be false. On a heavier note, doesn't this just piss you off? You've been had by the liberal media, yet again. It is obvious that they don't fact check any potential story that coincides with their holier-than-thou political why would this be any different? They've capitalized on the collective guilt that everyone feels (because of them) for "not doing their part" when it isn't even happening. I hate that.

And for all of you who are going to accuse me of being small-minded and jumping on the cliche conservative bandwagon of opposing liberal things for no good reason...I'll have you know that this isn't the only place I've read about global warming being a bunch of crap. (this is a great book)

All of this perfectly embodies why liberalism is generally small-minded and mostly wrong...if it was subjected to the same amount of scrutiny and media bias that conservatism has been, there would be no more liberals. It takes a sympathetic, intellectually bankrupt elite in order to sustain it...but it is falling apart, piece by globally warmed piece.
