One rule of life that seldom fails is; "Follow The Money". I am speaking of climate change. I am also speaking of what is called the "Scientific Method". I fear many of the followers of the politics of climate change use the logic spoken of in the stories of the blind describing an elephant. Indeed, many so-called experts have a myopic vision of the reasons for climate change, coming to conclusions based on a small portion of the elephant rather than seeing the whole picture. Others, as in follow the money, have their own self-interests in mind in selectively choosing data which ends up in more government grants to fund further research. Diane Sawyer recently interviewed Al Gore, asking him about possibly being the first "green" billionaire. His reply was that he invested in green technologies and put his money where his mouth is. It seems to me that manipulating the politics of "green" and alleged global warming is an "Inconvenient Truth" when it come to him and others. Follow the money.
The news article tells of a shipment of scotch whiskey that was abandoned in the Antarctic 100 years ago. it has been found but is froze in a few feet of ice. One can conclude that if there has been global warming, there should be less ice than there was back then. Never mind that it has seldom been reported that ice in the Antarctic has be increasing , this from our very own NASA which apparently hasn't been infiltrated by Obama people yet.
All of this affects you. It is what is driving the Cap and Trade drive and a possible international treaty that will take priority over our constitution.
