Haunted Houses spookier than Al Gore

by

The latest pew poll on climate change has identified that Americans are more likely to believe in haunted houses than Al Gore’s yarn about catastrophic human-caused climate change. (link)  Of course, the greenies are concerned about this. (link) It’s very hard, after all, to impose communism on a people when they are not scared of the demons you’ve invented.

I think the global warming movement is officially dead. It is unlikely they can do or say anything to convince enough Americans to slit their collective throats, economically speaking, with an insance energy policy whose net effect is to transfer wealth from the poorest among us to Al Gore.

After they’ve lied about the temperature going up in the past decade, lied about the polar bear population diminishing, lied about the ice caps melting, lied about the true impact of CO2 on the climate, lied about the oceans rising, and lied about pretty much everything they’ve claimed, I think the American people are sensing a pattern.

The “stake in the heart” has been the revelation that CO2 is actually not that great of a greenhouse gas, compared to gasses such as water vapor. In fact, even if we dramatically increased the CO2 levels in our atmosphere, the only effect we would see is more abundant plant life across the world. Oh, and perhaps a marginal temperature increase, barring the other effects that we can barely consider but seem to actually exist.

In fact, as our Middle Age ancestors realized, the sun has a far more powerful effect on the weather and the climate than anything we can produce here on earth. A good indicator of how hot or cold it will be is to simply count the number of sunspots. This is a better predictor of climate than anything else, so much so that any honest scientist cannot ignore the evidence. And this is also, surprise surprise, the secret to the Farmer’s Almanac’s impressive record of weather prediction.

Many people look down on Americans because we are not as gullible as they look. This is evidenced by our sincere and unshakable faith on the “Sky God” and his Son. This is also evidenced by our skepticism towards the new theories science invents from time to time, such as evolution. For all the predictions that evolution makes, it won’t forgive our sins or clear our conscience of guilt. Fat lot of good that is, I say.

May we forever be known as the odd nation who refuses to bow down and worship the gods of science and imminent global catastrophe that can only be diverted by a massive government takeover of our private lives.

    Neither does the theory of gravity!

      Which is why you never hear anyone say, “I believe in gravity!”

      Besides, physicists are still having a hard time understanding what causes gravity. Hence, the LHC and the search for the Higg’s Boson, in addition to the gravity wave detector projects.

        How precisely is the Higgs Boson relevant to the fact that scientific theories about gravity and evolution are irrelevant to forgiving sins or clearing our consciences of guilt?
