I had to write this.Â So here is a brief portion of the story with all the Gore:
“…the death count in Myanmar from the cyclone that hit there yesterday has been rising from 15,000 to way on up there to much higher numbers now being speculated. And last year a catastrophic storm from last fall hit Bangladesh. The year before, the strongest cyclone in more than 50 years hit China â€“ and weâ€™re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming”

So often I see disasters like this blamed on global warming but two things off the top of my head:
- Cyclones and other storms are caused by large temperature differences.Â IF the world is warming by greenhouse gases, the temperature differences would be LESS because of the green house effect (temperature is distributed evenly).Â Therefore, the storms should be less and less severe.
- Â Did he say something about a storm in China over 50 years ago that rivaled one that happened last year?Â If the world is warming and if warming causes stronger storms, a similar storm should not have happened 50 years ago when the world was cold.
So, time to get off my soap box and get to making money off of the government policies requiring new technologies because Gore has convinced them man is the cause of global warming.
(Disclaimer:Â I can not prove global warming or not, however, I can poke a lot of holes in global warming “facts”.Â However, if there is global warming, there is some very good science that shows that it is next to impossible to for man to effect it the way Gore and others claim we do.Â Another caveat: we must take care of our world so looking for ways not to pollute is smart.)
