Global Warming Theory LTE

An Open Letter to: Mr Dave Woolley, Huddleston, VA
Re: Your Open LTE, Roanoke Times, 2/13/09, Global Warming is no theory.

I certainly agree with you that we are 250 years into a global warming cycle. The issue at hand for most people is not that we have warmed-up since 1750, but, what has caused it and what to do about it. I have been very interested in the global warming discussion for a number of years. During a trip to Alaska, the subject came into sharp focus while visiting Mendenhall Glacier at Juneau.
-
The Mendenhall data is very clear that we have been in a warming cycle since 1750, the end of the little ice age. I have also visited Nisqually Glacier in Wa and two more glaciers in southern Norway. These glaciers, in addition to hundreds more, have all been studied and documented by Cambridge in London and by numerous other scientific groups and universities and all share a very similar footprint.
-
The 150 years of massive melting and retreat between 1750 and 1900 clearly indicates that our current global warming cycle was not the result of man-made CO2 as alleged by the Gore-hypothesis. Also, the global temperatures since then have not tracked against the published atmospheric CO2 as alleged.
-
For the first half of my life, from 1940 through 1975 there was a major cooling period that resulted in a scientific consensus that we were reentering another little ice age.
The articles in Newsweek Apr 28, 1975 and Time Jun 24, 1974 describe the coming climate and food crisis with the primary recommendation that the US government use planes to dust-cover the polar ice with dark powder to increase heat absorption. Apparently it’s a good thing we didn’t do that!
-
The published NASA global temperature data graphs also clearly show that we have experienced only one (1) degree warming in the past 100 years and no net temperature change in the last 10 years. This data is in stark contrast with the intense and hysterical media-hype about the imminent global warming disaster.
-
There is a large body of professional and learned scientists who strongly disagree with the Gore-hypothesis and have well documented that our current global warming cycle is not the result of man-made CO2. These studies and data are indeed not visible in the Roanoke Times.
-
March 8 to 10 will be the 2009 international conference on climate change in Times Square in NYC. http://www.heartland.org/events/NewYork09/newyork09.html
Some of the most distinguished scientists in the world will be presenting the most current data and studies that contradict the Gore-hypothesis. I’m sure that this also will not receive any coverage in the Roanoke Times or the media community they are partnered with.
-
Clearly we have an energy crisis. It is the crisis of energy independence. We need to free ourselves from our dependence upon our enemies and to stop the major flow of wealth out of our country and economy. Green and renewable energy will play an increasing role, however, for at least the next 20 years we need significant additional domestic energy supplies to be brought online to satisfy our current total demand and support the two-plus million new people we add each year to our population (we have added 2+ million people every year since 1945).
-
Not only are we paralyzed relative to conventional power development, but here in Virginia we can’t even support the Va Highlands Wind Farm, the primary “ready to go” green energy project in Virginia that has been in a regulatory swamp for 5 years.
