We find ourselves in a time of confusion, deception, and apathy. Those who have not swallowed the global warming caused by man myth, yet wish to do what is right, find themselves in the middle of an enormous battle.
If burning fossil fuel is so bad, why doesn’t Al Gore ride a bicycle to the coast, then board a sailboat to attend these European conferences the climate kingpins so often hold? Is it ‘Inconvenient’ to do so? Is he too important to worry about his own climate footprint? What about his house? Is his home powered by unicorn farts and fairy dust? No, it isn’t.
Armed with Gore’s utility bills for the last two years, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research charged Monday that the gas and electric bills for the former vice president’s 20-room home and pool house devoured nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours in 2006, more than 20 times the national average of 10,656 kilowatt-hours.

The deception has been slow and gradual, like the story of the frog, In case you don’t know it;
If you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will immediately jump out, however, if you put it in a pot of cool water then gradually warm it, the frog will get cooked because it doesn’t notice the change.
Our schools have used the progressive tools of indoctrination in this manner for decades. We are at the point where these teachings are normal and not the fringe. But how did this happen? Parents are just too busy. Everything costs more, we have more gadgets, fancier TVs, football practice, dance lessons, you name it, so parents have relied on the schools to raise their children. They have, by design.
MYTH 3: Human produced carbon dioxide has increased over the last 100 years, adding to the Greenhouse effect, thus causing most of the earth’s warming of the last 100 years.
FACT: Carbon dioxide levels have indeed changed for various reasons, human and otherwise, just as they have throughout geologic time. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the CO2 content of the atmosphere has increased by about 120 part per million (ppm), most of which is likely due to human-caused CO2 emissions. The RATE of growth during this century has been about 0.55%/year. However, there is no proof that CO2 is the main driver of global warming. As measured in ice cores dated over many thousands of years, CO2 levels move up and down AFTER the temperature has done so, and thus are the RESULT OF, NOT THE CAUSE of warming. Geological field work in recent sediments confirms this causal relationship. There is solid evidence that, as temperatures move up and down naturally and cyclically through solar radiation, orbital and galactic influences, the warming surface layers of the earth’s oceans expel more CO2 as a result.Friends of Science
It doesn’t matter where you live unless it is in a remote location under a rock you feel the effects of the ‘conspiracy’ I guess you call it, to change the world and redistribute wealth. One could speculate to whom this wealth is redirected, but does that matter? It is taken from you with every light bill or tank of gas. The effects cover everything we buy if produced using petroleum products, electricity or any other over-regulated commodity.
The argument posed is almost always ‘the consensus’ of 97% of scientists is humanity is creating excess carbon dioxide causing global warming. I even heard the blame placed on the cows we get our milk or beef from being too flatulent. Come on, really?
Consensus is the business of politics. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.

Now we have Donald Trump, like him or hate him, he will be our president in short order. So far, his appointments sound pretty good, and Scott Pruitt is potentially an important one.
Pruitt is a prominent denier of climate science, writing in the National Review in May that “the debate is far from settled” over whether human activity has contributed to the warming of the earth. In point of fact, the vast majority of climate scientists say climate change is real and humans contribute to it.
