Okay. I’m following up a global warming article with another global warming article. I know. However, my level of concern increases as the evidence or lack of becomes more apparent, and the scientific testimonies keep rolling in.
I live in arguably one of the most eco-friendly places on the planet, Sweden. Swedes are usually on top of their game when it comes to things green. Nevertheless, when it comes to the global warming debate, some of them, like a lot of folks in the U.S., approach the issue with a zealousness normally seen in some fundamentalist groups. I like to try and follow the evidence on such matters. Here’s some more evidence to consider.
After reading such an article I can’t help but wonder why I’m not hearing about such testimony in the mainstream media. Personally, I like the idea of cleaner alternative energy sources, but getting them deceitfully takes a toll on public trust which is crucial for good government. In other words: don’t lie to us to get us on your side. If the evidence for man-made global warming is lacking, it needs to be said so. Surely after the recent oil pricing roller coaster, folks can see a need for alternative energy sources existing. Just be honest about it! I can’t count how many times I’ve heard or read stories of imminent climate danger that we need to act against now lest the earth suffer damage on an apocalyptic scale. The science says otherwise.
It was quite predicatble that governments and the United Nations would latch onto the man-made global warming issue with vigor, eventually proposing tax-increases to try and solve the problem. Tax increases aren’t always bad (though I usually look with suspicion on the bulk of them nowadays), but if they’re going to be raised let’s at least be sure why. This does not seem to be the case with global warming. When I see entire multi-billion dollar industries (e.g. automobile, food) being affected without the science being even slightly conclusive I get concerned. I know I can’t be the only one.
I leave it to you to make up your own mind, of course, but the least I can do is shed light on what you’re not likely to see in the press. However, I do ask that you honestly consider following the evidence where it leads.
