While we prefer to do our own research and writing here at GreenhouseGasHoles.com, there are times when one just has to admit, “I couldn’t have said it any better myself.”  First, I think he’s just a clever chap.  But, since it’s Christmas… and I’ve always thought he looks like Santa Claus.  Well, what better time to introduce you to David Bellamy !? As a huge fan of his,  I’m honored to give him the podium today to give his take on the myth of global warming:

There is no evidence of carbon dioxide being a poison, or that it is capable of causing a warming Armageddon. What follows is a summary of the proof — straight from real science, peer-reviewed over the past 232 years by legions of physicists, thanks to Newton’s Principia.

Remember the famous picture of Miss Marilyn Monroe with her skirt blown high? Even at the age of 76, when I see this picture my temperature goes up — followed by the amount of carbon dioxide I exhale. Never the other way ’round. Now, thanks to the study of a series of ice cores, this appears to be an inconvenient truth for the global warming industry.

Al Gore used this ice core data to claim that carbon dioxide made the temperature of the world rise, threatening life on earth, because there was a correlation between atmospheric CO2 levels and the world’s average temperature. Yet the data from the much-celebrated Vostok ice cores paints a very different picture: Up goes the temperature, followed by a rise in carbon dioxide.

Effectively flattening Gore’s dreams of hedging his funds.

More troubles lie ahead for the warmists. Independent researchers have pointed out that crucially important pieces of the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) evidence were based on false statistical analysis. For starters . . . read more here.

Ah yes! Nothing says “Global Warming” like snow on your palm trees. And take a look at the date stamp on this photo! Today marks the all-time record for the earliest snowfall in the history of this south Texas town’s otherwise balmy weather.

And yet, the skeptics who would point to a picture like this as evidence that the earth doesn’t seem to be getting warmer at all, will be pilloried and mocked by all the GW faithful.

You see, we “knuckle-draggers” and “flat-earthers” (or insert any other name that you’ve been called for questioning the tenets of their religion) clearly don’t know anything. To which I hope you’ll respond, “I see you’ve already made up you mind. Don’t let the facts confuse you!”

Or perhaps they will explain it away, as many have tried to do, by slowly changing their hysterical mantra of “Global Warming” to “Global Climate Change”. After all, it’s getting harder and harder to say “warming” with a straight face, when it’s snowing on your green grass.

What’s the best excuse you’ve heard so far today?
